  1. Ability to add Welcome message

    Skype In - dial in number.
    A mandatory feature has been added to our Skype-In number requiring callers to press a random digit 0-9 in order to connect call. Your support team has advised us this was a new feature implemented to limit/ stop SPAM callers.

    We would like the ability to personalise the welcome message, and record our own voice asking the user to press a number to be connected through. In this way callers can be certain they have reached the correct company.

    It is very unfriendly the way it has been currently implemented.
    Thank you.

  3. Skype and Skype for Business in one APP

    [EN] Hello, I suggest that personal Skype be the same APP as Skype for Business, as well as Personal OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, both should already come integrated in Windows 10, groove.exe and lync.exe is a thing of the past, thanks.

    [PT] Olá, sugiro que o Skype pessoal seja o mesmo APP que o Skype for Business, assim como o OneDrive pessoal e OneDrive for Business, ambos já deveriam vir integrados no Windows 10, groove.exe e lync.exe é coisa do passado, obrigado.

  4. Connect Skype to Discord within Skype application

    Discord is fine for chat, but for audio and video calling and conferencing, Skype still has it beat. So...why not initiate a link to the Discord account that can be initiated within Skype? Discord already has a link in its app that is supposed to be able to connect to Skype, but it doesn't work well with the Windows 8/10 application. Discord and Skype each should do what they do best, but work together for best results.

  6. Why is there no option to disable the Skype ringtone? Very unprofessional...

    The Skype ringtone is obnoxious and the fact that we are paying for a service but are not even given the option to disable sound effects is quite disappointing. I don't play videogames and I don't watch cartoons. I find the loud, childish ringtone to be quite abusive on the ears.

  8. bring back SKYPE 7 without delay!! (Skype 8 is #&*$@! atrocious)

    I'm completely frustrated with the lack of functionality, dumbed-down and crash-prone tendencies of the new Skype 8 - so much so I want to find an alternative service (off MSFT) to switch to. Skype 7 was so much better, and it should be brought back.

  12. Option to request to supply password to make new contact request

    Have an option the users can turn on, to force people making contact requests to supply a password the Skype user being contacted gave them to make the contact request.

    This would eliminate most if not all spam contact requests that are received daily.

    If I want a friend or colleague to be my Skype contact, I can give them a password to use to make the contact request. The Skype user would know which password was used to make the successful contact.

    Have the ability to manage several contact passwords, so that if a company gives or sells a…

  13. Es funktioniert kein Anrufer ID anzeigen der Skype Nummer. Die Teilnehmer sehen nur die Handy Nummer. Es ist nicht möglich seine Festnetz Nu

    Es muss möglich sein die Skype Nummer als Anrufer-ID zu verwenden.

    Problem:
    Es funktioniert kein Anrufer ID anzeigen der Skype . Die Teilnehmer sehen nur die Handy Nummer. Es ist nicht möglich seine Festnetz Nummer zu verwenden. Somit ist das Angebot für 40 € nicht wirklich attraktiv. Da das senden der Festnetznummer nich außergewöhnliches ist.....

  17. third party integration apps for pc

    I use Skype on my PC with a paid subscription. Third party Handsets and VOIP phones no longer integrate properly, e.g. the keypad on usb VOIP phones do not work anymore as they did with Skye Classic. Although I appreciate that I can use the pc keyboard, having a plug in usb phone with a functioning keypad was very useful.

  18. Side bar for group calling!

    side bar for group video calling that can stay on top of other windows. It will shift your active windows to the left or right, so you can work and talk at the same time.

  19. An Option For The Old Look.

    The classic version of Skype was more appealing to the eye to me and since we cant really get the old version back with the features it had, it be nice to at least have the old look. Kinda like revamped cartoons.
