  1. allow users who have home phones instead of cellphones to use skype. Your policy is idiotic because if I had cellphone I would never use sky

    allow home phone a well as cellphone. why only cellphone? if I had cellphone I would never need skype.
    your policy is idiotic.

  2. Picking people to call

    I suggest, instead of calling everyone in a group, you can select specific people to call in a group. Because some of my friends don't go on Skype or they're busy and don't want to be called, so it would be better to pick specific people to call

    Or add an option; rather the whole group or specific people

  3. Add hotkey to fast switch screen for demonstration.

    Sometimes need to show another screen in demonstration and now you need to open skype from tray and make 4-5 click, it will be better to change it by hotkeys (for first,second, third screen)

  4. folders so I can group my contacts better

    I wish you had folders so I can group my contacts better. for example, I have Centers, Vendors, Clients, Broker, Personal and if skype had folders I could go to
    the folder I want and make contact with them easily

  5. Share sound only

    Yes well as you can all see the new skype has a feature where you can screen share with sound or without it but you can't share only sound without screen like in the older versions of skype, please make a feature for sound share only.

  6. Share profile

    Since you cannot have a Skype name anymore, there should be a link to share your profile with other people so they can find you directly through that specific link.

  10. in chat window text expanders are not working correctly

    Inside chat windows, Text Expanders do not work - if you use a text expansion at the end of a message - for example "br" for "best regards" the message before this phrase will be mostly deleted.

  13. Personal, Unique Emoticon

    I suggest to have a emoticon which is using our face. I think 3 ways of this idea.
    1) It is like we can upload our picture, and we can crop our face and add to the emoticon of skype.

    2) Or using a face recognizance , it will need the user to follow the instruction of showing their own facial expression and will be stored in their skype. Can be our own face or in a more cartoon way

    3) Or like Sims, we can choose the face details, like hair, eye brows,etc.

  14. A function for cancelling camera mirror when taking selfie on phone Skype

    Hi there! I don't see the Audio and Video option in Phone setting. I like using Skype to take picture, but the camera mirror flips all my selfies and its quite annoying. Thats why I want to have a camera mirror option on phone Skype for us.

    Also!, i also like to add a Flip function when edit pictures. There is rotation, Crop but no Flip.

  15. Mute alert

    During conference calls, invariably someone 'forgets they are on mute' or has an issue with the mute button, causing wasted time and dead air. Could skype alert with a chime/screen alert when it detects voices while on mute to notify the user that they are muted and not communicating with the conference call?
