  6. Allow IPad users to have larger fonts on iPad

    Althoughnyou allow users to increase font sizes on desktops, you don’t have this feature on IPad. Please add it for iPad users. Have you any idea how ridiculous it is to have to use a magnifying glass to read rhe text in this day andnage

  9. Stop showing ads

    STOP SHOWING THESE STUPID ADS. It forces me to get rid of Skype completely on all my devices and make my family members to make a switch with me.

  12. Android design fault, perhaps because of large font setting

    OK?
    When I try to make a phone call a big box blocks the area to put in a number, telling me to get caller ID

    I cannot get rid of this box and cannot make phone calls using ANdroid

    It is VERY ANNOYING

    Every time I try to call someone on Android a big box blocks the area where I put in the number

    This is insane

  14. Hide message from a blocked contact in a group

    Other members are a pain in a group chat. Even I block them I still see their message or their profile photo in the group member list.

  15. Block a person

    How about making it possible to block a person you have communicated with?? WHY does it have to be so difficult? We find NO option to do that.

  17. Chat Heads

    I think SKYPE should also have "chat heads" same with facebook messenger for us to access other apps while chatting. Thanks!

  18. My idea, is to do what snapchat does, allow a photo to be deleted after viewing or options for it to be viewed in 24hrs.

    Sometimes you post a video or a photo but here u have option to delete but the other party still sees it. Which defeats the purpose of deleting. Maybe having an option to delete photos/videos post in a chat on both sides of the party received, or allow the other recipient to view it for 24hrs or option to delete photos/video after viewing. It would make for a more secure site as well, so if ever hacked, no one has access to those things as well.
