  3. Delete contact from Search > People

    Permanently delete contacts still appear in Search > People.
    That's a big issue in terms of privacy & RGPD.

    Deleted contacts should be permanently deleted.
    There shall be no trace that such connection actually happened in the first place.

  4. Permanently delete contacts => Delete Forever & with no trace

    Contacts cannot be permanently deleted. And that is very problematic for privacy & RGPD issues:
    - Deleted contacts still appear in Search > People
    - They also appear in Search > When I start typing a letter, with "chatted 3 months ago"
    Deleted contacts should be permanently deleted, and there shall remain no trace that such connection happened in the first place.

  6. Please add a country

    Please add +599 to your list of countries for Bonaire, Curacao, st Eustatius and Saba, previously known as the Netherlands Antilles. We still exist! Perhaps you can call us Caribbean Netherlands.

  7. Show active and idle contacts

    Currently we have the option to select list active contacts, and that is fine.
    Could you please also have an option "Active and idle contacts" so that we can have the list of active(Green) and idle(orange) status together?

  12. signing in accounts

    Hi,
    I would like that my several accounts appear when singing in, instead of having to go through the whole process of typing the email and password each time I want to switch accounts.

  14. Changing your Skype account

    Good afternoon. I have a Skype account for a very long time. Even before Microsoft bought Skype. After that I created a Microsoft account which is based on the same mail as Skype.
    Microsoft has created a new Skype account in its account.
    And now I cannot delete my new Skype account and change to my old Skype.

  15. Shortcuts for putting calls on hold and resuming the call.

    I find it very time consuming to return to the call just to hold and resume call whenever I want to. I wish you could employ shortcut for this one. Thank you.

  16. Chat history and removed contacts history

    Hello. I think being able to see old chat history from atleast 10 years ago might be useful. For example, if you lost a touch with somebody, but you can't clearly remember their name, you can try to write in the chat from many years ago and hope the person will write you back.
    Or atleast you can add some features like seeing the removed contacts history or all contacts history etc.
    I think it will help many people to connect again.
    Thank you very much.

  18. Smart content

    Enable smart content in messages

    25-12-2020 should be detected as a date and clicking on the date should popup a mini popup monthly calendar for that date

    $258 should be detected as currency and clicking on it should show current exchange rate in local currency

  19. I don't need to be reminded all the time that I don't have a camera.

    My 'Camera' is a microscope. I don't have it on all the time. When I am using Skype, I do not need to be reminded that a camera can not be found, but all the time that I am having a conversation on Skype the notification is there in the lower middle of the screen, encouraging me to troubleshoot the 'problem.' It keeps coming back after I dismiss it.
    For some, there are privacy issues that mean they don't want to have a camera. (Oh look, my partner is walking around behind me with no/scanty clothes, to name just one). …
