Skype users can add a mood message to their profiles for all of their friends, family members and colleagues to see. These mood messages can say anything you'd like, and can reference where you are, what you are doing or even a quote you find meaningful. In addition to text, you can also add a custom video to your mood messages. These mood messages can be left up for as long as you want, and turned off easily by updating your Skype profile. You can also disable notifications of friends' mood messages if you find them distracting.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the Skype application on your computer. Sign in with your username and password to view the main menu.

  2. 2

    Click on the notification counter, which appears when you have unread messages in Skype. In addition to chat messages, you may receive notifications when a friend posts a mood message.

  3. 3

    Double-click on a mood message to open it.

  4. 4

    Right-click inside of the open mood message to change your mood message notification settings.

  5. 5

    Select "Do not notify me" and "Mark unread messages as read" from the display window that appears on your screen. Save your settings for the mood message notifications to be turned off for your Skype account.
