Skype user status can be obtained accessing this
It works if user explicitly decided to 'Show my status on the web'.
On Mac it's done using Menu
Skype -> preferences -> Privacy tab -> checking 'Show my status on the web'
How to turn ON Skype's "Show my Status on the web" from within Skype Android app?
(An alternate acceptable solution would be to turn ON "Show my Status on the web" from Skype web site. I looked for that, but didn't find any parameters on https://secure.skype.com/portal/profile)
Thanks for helping.
