  1. There should be a feature to change a skype sound! (yes i know a lot of people suggesting this feature)

    There should be a setting in the Skype app to change a notification sound. if it's in skype for business, just port the feature over to skype. it's kinda easy. how to use it would pretty much be like this. settings > general > Ringtones And Sounds > Customize.

  3. Historic Call clean

    I'm not talking about the chat history, I'm talking about the calls. My skype is over 12 years old and keeps a history of calls and people who no longer even use the service. Just like the message, the call history should have the option to clear them as well.

  7. Need Drag and Drop in your reaction section

    Skype should give drag and drop functionlity in Your Reaction section. Because every new added emoji comes at first. then after we want to rearrange it.

  8. Suggest virtual backgrounds for video, e.g. photos etc.

    Suggest virtual backgrounds for video, e.g. photos etc. that can be uploaded and selected to use in place of the actual background (a basement for example, which may not be particularly flattering, but where my office is currently located).

  12. A key stroke function reset

    i continually hit cntrl "T" while typing. The letter "T" with shift is used a **** of a lot in english I notice, and instead of hitting shift accurately, if I am a bit tired, I miss the shift key and hit the cntrl key which activates anolther screen and sometime takes me to skype help. It can be very frustrating. I would like to be able to chose to deactivate the cntrl "T" when i need to. Other key stokes are not such an issue.

  14. Check out openphone.co they have tons of features we could benefit from in the Skype ecosystem

    Enable text to speech responders, enable audio transcription of the voicemail, enable call filtering (to weed out sales calls)

  17. picture orientation

    When i take a photo on my device in landscape mode it appears in portrait mode in the chat window and cant be rotated. It would be nice to be able to rotate it before posting, or after when i, or someone else views it.

  18. Hide control bar during videocalls

    During a call the control bar at the bottom should be transparent or hidden so that the visible area is larger. Changed with one of the last updates. Would be great to be able to change that back in the settings.

  19. log in

    Hide my login status and close Skype for iPhone. When I reopen Skype for iPhone, the status is logg in. Previously, the login status remained hidden. I would like to you to put it back.

  20. Do not minimize full screen apps/games when a call comes in

    During full screen apps (such as games), if a skype call comes in, it minimizes the game entirely. Please allow us to disable that.
