  1. Recovering chats

    For the next update, give the option to recover or export/import chat history from local storage to the cloud. Conversations from before 2017 are completely missing, making things extremely difficult when trying to locate old conversations.

  2. Slowly grey out unmessaged contacts.

    Instead of a contact jumping to the top of the contacts list when you message them, it'd be nice to have an option where everyone stays in order and those you haven't messaged in a while just get slowly more grey until they're at maximum greyness, and the ones you've talked to more recently are just their normal bright selves.

  3. Call Ring Tones

    On a previous version you could set your own ring tone. PLEASE bring this back! It makes it far easier to differentiate when you get a skype call as opposed to other types of call. Also the Skype ring tone is annoying!

  5. Leave multiple groups or delete multiple contacts at once!

    Leave multiple groups or delete multiple contacts at once.
    It would be a really useful feature if you could leave multiple groups at once if you've got a lot of them and I mean a lot , I've got like 250 groups and I have to manually leave a group, one by one.

  6. I brand new user interface - the existing one is appalling.

    Use actual users to test your ideas.

    Too many icons in too many places doing too many things with no tool tips.

    When adding someone to a call - show that person is being called, or not.

  12. Truly unlimited 'world subscription' with all mobile and landlines included

    I want to replace my physical landline phone with skype. But I need to be able to call ALL the numbers (mobile, landlines, paid etc) worldwide (not only 8 or 30 countries). Please make this available by creating such a subscription for individuals so we can finally throw out the old landline phones.

  13. Freeze the screen view to colleagues

    Skype for business, when sharing my screen i can only show screen or stop sharing. It would be good to pause or freeze the view while I click around for another page or document, then unfreeze my view to show colleagues.

    This would also be good if I want to check my emails or do something else while presenting something and not interrupting other conversations.

  14. Organize chats on the sidebar

    When managing a large number of chats/chat groups, it would be handy to be able to organize them on the sidebar, by creating new tags (besides 'favorites')

    Thanks

  18. It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use.

    It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use. Why do we use Skype for the convenience of work? Why do you change them into inconvenient skype? Why?
    The previous registration rules have been used for many years. Why can you even modify the registration rules?
    why is your company's smarter team making such a decision, so it is very unwise for a big company, billions of people around the world use skype, you are free to change to unwise and unwise The decision of the…

  19. Skype for free teachers

    Здравствуйте! Я репетитор иностранного языка и хотела бы заниматься по скайпу. Подскажите, есть ли такие возможности, что бы ученики, не только видели мой экран, но и сами могли на нем работать? а так же объединяться в мини-группы/пары (для составления диалогов, например) внутри одного звонка, таким образом, чтобы другие учащиеся не слышали их обсуждений, а я в свою очередь могла заходить и контролировать процесс выполнения задания?

    Если такие функции есть, что нужно для этого сделать? Что купить? Что скачать?

    Спасибо!
