Recently covered SkyHistory incorporates a slew of history management features into Skype, allowing user to separately manage contacts, conversations, and to filter chats according to user-defined date and time. Today we have come across yet another great add-on for Skype called Skype History Viewer, which offers a direct way to save and view conversations by listed contacts. It looks for previously logged-in users and their contacts and then allows you to view their chat history. If you, for instance, want to view you chat history with one specific contact, just select the contact from the list and it will show all the chats with date and time stamps and chat body.
According to the developer this open source add-in is developed to view chat history of Skype users. You just have to select the user from the list to show chat history logs.
Usage is simple. Before you launch Skype History Viewer, make sure that Skype is not running in background. The main interface lets you select the user whose chat history is to be viewed. From Skype Username select Skype user followed by contact name from selected Skype user’s contact list. Now just select Display Chat History to show display name, dialog partner, date and time stamp along with conversation history with selected contact.
The Export Chat History feature is not implemented yet. The application will soon be updated with export features along with more history viewing functionalities. It works on Windows Vista and Windows 7.
