    In group chats lots of message are sent and incase of meeting or some talks, important notes and messages are hidden,takes time to scroll and go through every message

    OR

    Chat Highlights:
    Something like bookmarking messages in group chat so that all can review the group chat highlights when unable to attend meetings or group chat session

  4. Data storage location

    It would be great to be able to store Skype for Android data and cache on sd card. Or in any other location. It could be encrypted or not — per user wishes.

  6. Ability to share screen with computer sound on Mac devices

    It would be really awesome if the Skype developers could implement the ability to share computer audio along with the screen share to Mac users, as windows users already have this feature. Especially in the current climate of the pandemic and lockdown, more people are inclined to watch movies and play games together. I know the popular app to use is Zoom nowadays, but personally, my partner and I have noticed Skype has been having better performance when it comes to screen share (less lag when watching videos, movies, etc). I hope they add this feature for Mac users one…

  7. Please enable "mirror flip" AT ONCE!

    It is very irritating to see oneself as a mirror image on Skype for Desktop... Why is it available on Zoom and not on Skype? Any reasonable explanation?
    This is a trivial issue that can be fixed very easily.
    Thank you for you improving your product.

  12. Old sounds in the new skype version

    Hello! I would like to ask if it is possible in the current skype version (8.73) to put all these old sounds back. Watch this video, for the skype sounds 2003-2017: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4tnYCSIiAU&t=12s. You will see the video at the link. Can a Microsoft developer or someone reply? Thank you very much!

  13. Mic Check Option

    Hi, I can no longer use your app on my tablet because it refuses to recognize my tablet as having a mic. If you could give us back the feature that allows us to alter mic sensitivity. That would be great. But for now i have to find a new application to do calls with. Thanks.

  16. To be able to import Skype version 7.xx files/history to Skype version 8.xx

    The old Skype before 2018 used an old local database/cloud which cannot be merged with the 2018 and so on version of Skype as of now.

    Being able to either merge the data together so you're able to see your old conversation files/history with the new cloud could result in a much better Skype experience, or users with data Main.db file (from 2017 - before) will be able to merge this file locally to the new Skype (2018 - now); then updated to the new cloud.

    This can resolve users that wants to read their old data (like me).

  17. Add feature to completely and permanently delete private messages..

    Add feature to completely and permanently delete hidden chats/ private messages.. now it just deletes the text inside the private conversation so still anyone can see who you spoke to on what date. Seems just a simple issue to resolve but now there is nothing private about it..

  19. Users would benefit from being able to retrieve messages that were sent over 30 days ago. Allow us to download chats from 5+ years ago.

    Allow users to be able to find any messages that were sent regardless of any length of time that has passed. Not being able to view older messages is a very big negative and many users would love to be able to see the old messages/chats that they had. Give us the option to download our past chat history.

  20. "Account blocked"

    I just wasted 4 hours trying to fix a problem. I dialed a Skype-to-phone number and got "Account blocked". I spent the next 4 hours chasing down rabbit holes suggested by the virtual assistant and her evil minions. I finally lied to the 20 questions and said the problem was with Windows, which got me to a human, who finally connected me to a person named Maurice, who made a simple suggestion that really ought to be listed as a cause in your knowledge base -- I use a VPN. Apparently it picked a poisoned IP address. All the other…
