    • Add a feature that can remove you from all the groups you are with blocked contacts.

      I've been having a contact harrassing me constantly because after I removed it from my contacts and blocked it's still on a lot of groups that I've been creating. Please add a feature that allows me to get out of all the groups that I'm in with a certain contact.

      • When I close Skype, I want the application be closed. Not minimized. Not hiding in the tray. Closed. Killed.

        I don't want it running in the background just in case. I want it closed. I don't want to have to open task manager to force close it. When I click the X button. Close it. Close the application. If I wanted to minimise it, I'd click the minimise button. CLOSE THE APPLICATION WHEN THE CLOSE APPLICATION BUTTON IS CLICKED.

        • Please restore Skype chat and admin commands.

          Skype used to have a lot of great features. They had admin commands, they had discussion topics in addition to chat banners. They removed so many things that actually worked and we're left with a shell of a program. I don't understand. I can't /get or /set anything.

          I'm trying to set alarms in our chat. While it used to be doable, now it's just impossible.

              • Logo Removal Option for Video Out (Namely NDI)

                Previous versions of Skype allowed for disabling the watermark within the incoming video feed(s). With the move (and first platform to do so I might add) to integrate NDI, the ability to do so has been removed. If Skype is positioning itself to be a continued standard in broadcast and professional remote video, this option needs to return.

                        • Restoring Removed Messages for Legal Purposes

                          Hi! I think it would be better if you will create a feature that would enable us to restore or view removed messages. Coz I once had a case with my previous employer who accused me of sabotaging the company, they had a screenshot of my conversation with a colleague but when I checked it, they removed some of the messages I made which would could've helped me prove that I never sabotaged the company.

                                • Enabling recovery or retrieval of deleted messages

                                  Placing both options ("Take conversation off from Favorites" and "Delete Conversation") so close to another, in the same right-click menu, with no retrieve or recovery option- is a ****** UI planning to say the least- if not worse then that.
                                  But on top of that, its awfully disappointing and even shocking that a company like Microsoft does not offer its users the basic ability to backup such conversations and to recover them in case of such mistakes. After all- this was the whole point in moving stuff into cloud services- so that all critical things wont be all saved and…

                                  • Record my THANK YOU FOR CALLING ME message on my answering machine is no more available???

                                    In the past I used to have a message recorded when customers tried to reach me and could not so that they knew I’m a real business. However I don’t see that feature now. What am I doing wrong. I’d definitely have to terminate my account if this feature has been canceled.

                                      To record or taking picture should be possible only with permission of the other person as well. If picture has been taken and shown in the picture media or gallery both person should be able to remove a picture of them they do not want to be taken. At the moment it can be removed only by the person who took the photo shot of the other person without the other person`s permission or his/her option to remove it.
