Skype, like many applications, uses a persistent notification to keep from getting killed by the process manager. Usually, I would just hide this notification by going to the app's "App Info" screen and unchecking the "Show notifications" box. However, I want to get message notifications. Just not the constant "Available" notification.
Here's a screenshot of the notification I'm talking about.
After some Googling, I've found people who suggest disabling the "Skype Status" notification in the app settings. However, that doesn't seem to be an option on my device.
I use Android 4.4 on a Nexus 5.
How can I remove/disable the Skype login/status persistent notification, without disabling other Skype notifications?
