  1. Add more colors for messaging, prefferabely a color wheel.

    The colors for messaging are too bright and seem bland. Its pink, blue, yellow, light blue, orange(?), and black. It would be way better if we could select from a color wheel to get the exact color that we would all prefer!

  2. get rid of start page and go to login direct

    when you open skype open with the login page so you don't waste time then once you log in and have checked notifications don't keep showing them every time you login allow user to set what is allowed by skype not the program some of us have proprietary information on the computer that should not be open to anyone contacting us plus there are things in the room that should not be seen by others. Easier to use the competition because you don't have to fight the system

  5. Deleting incoming messages

    We are able to delete outgoing messages, however not able to delete any incoming ones. Don’t understand why.
    We should be able to control what stays on our skype account. Also if we can mark up several messages for deletion would be ideal. Just like with the outgoing ones.

    Thank you.

  11. The user should be able to hide their birth year.

    The user should be able to hide their birth year as this is not an information that is desirable to be shared. A better option could be to allow the user to save their date of birth without specifying the year, which currently is mandatory.

  12. being able to remove multiple contacts from your Skype account

    this may already exist not sure but to be able to remove multiple contacts at once from your Skype account currently as far as I can tell this is not possible and I’m really surprised that it is it that should’ve been implemented sooner

  14. video screen is broken

    I am using Galaxy Note 4 and Skype version is 8.45.
    I can not make video calls after updating Skype 8.45.

    This is because my friend's video screen is broken.

    I went to the Samsung service center and was diagnosed that there was no problem with the device.

    I deleted and reinstalled the default app. However, you can not make video calls due to the same issue.

    help.

  15. Please dial 5 (or any other number) to be connected?

    I had a skype-in number. Now callers are asked to dial a number before skype will connect the call. I don't want this "feature". Allow us to disable it atlease!

  16. block phone number

    it would be nice to be able to block my phone number when calling particular people that you don't want to be able to see your phone number. If there already is a way to do this, could you tell me or refer me to the instructions on how to do it. Thanks

  19. voting

    I cannot find anywhere that Skpe features - specifically, voting - are listed by Skype product (free Vs. cost). Is voting included in the free version?
