  1. Allow personized voicemail promts

    Being able to personalize the voicemail prompts will ensure that the callers that call through Skype know who they are calling if they missed a call from me.

  2. Need to have the 100 icon

    The "100" emoji is such a thing now, it would be great if you could add it.

  3. Pickup the Skype call when picking up the handset on IP Video phones

    When using a IP Video Phone, like Grandstream GXV3350, you must touch the screen to pick up a Skype call
    That seems easy and fun...but it is not when dealing with elderly people.

    The best would be to use the handset pickup event and have a nice configuration option to act audio only or audio+video when picking up like this.

  6. Add an ability to disable GPU hardware acceleration

    For some Electron apps it's common in case of Linux to hang an entire system in the unpredictable manner. I saw this behavior on Skype, RocketChat, VS Code. My current understanding is it may be related to GPU hardware acceleration, as for some users it was a solution. See the example here:

  9. Contact phone number identifier needs further options

    Contacts phone numbers need additional identifiers rather than just HOME, MOBILE or OFFICE. A user defined option would be ideal.

  10. See who is trying to connect with me

    User Story / Pain:
    When someone is trying to connect with me on Skype, I need to check who it is in order to decide whether to accept the connection or not. Currently I find no obvious way to do that.

    Feature Suggestion:
    Allow the receiver of a contact request be able to see the senders info and to initiate a chat with them as if they we were already contacts. That way the receiver can more easily verify the senders identity, thus avoid scammers / phishing while accepting legitimate connections.

    Rationale:
    By sending me a contact request, they have…

  12. Mi suscripción fue cancelada por problemas con mi Tarjeta de Credito y me quieren aumentar el precio en 42% por el mismo servicio

    El banco cancelo mi tarjeta de crédito debido a lo que considero consumos extraños, todo esto sin mi conocimiento y conocimiento. Esto afecto todas las afiliaciones pago automáticas que tenia. Entre ellas las de Skype, yo tengo una suscripción de USD6.99 mensuales con 300 minutos a Venezuela. Ahora que el banco me envió una nueva tarjeta de crédito estoy tratando de reactivar la suscripción de skype y no puedo, por que no aparece la misma opción al precio. Me quieren cobrar usd9.99 ósea un 42% de incremento por un error que no es mío y que estoy tratando de mantener…

  14. Option to Disable Auto-Emojis

    As a person who hates emojis and prefers the simple emoticon appearing as text , it is frustrating that there's no option to disable my emoticons from appearing as emojis when I hit send.
    I think this feature would be easy to implement and please a lot of people who also feel the same way I do.

  16. Labels for deleted messages

    Skype is used as a professional chat tool, so it must show labels for deleted messages unless they are seen, & also an option to recover that deleted message if required.
