To make it easier to interact with your friend's in the new Skype, we automatically set your status for you. When you are signed in you will show online, with a green dot in the Chats screen. And in a specific chat, your status will show ACTIVE NOW. When you are signed out or offline, your status will show LAST SEEN and how long ago you were online.
If you would prefer to hide your presence status completely, you can change this in your profile settings to make yourself invisible. Tap your profile picture > Tap the Settings button > Tap Privacy > then you can toggle Show my presence to others on or off. To manage the Do Not Disturb presence: You still have control over when people can contact you. Turning off the Notification for conversations option will show your presence as Do Not Disturb, which lets your contacts know you aren't currently available. This will also stop all incoming message notifications, however, you will still receive Skype calls.
