  4. Visual voicemail for telephone calls

    Please give Skype users a free voicemail box that they can have calls routed from their phone to the Skype app for visual voicemail.
    I think adding a feature like this will let Microsoft take over more of the mobile market by giving users a free, easy visual voicemail service.

  6. Would like to switch between my 3 international Skype caller ID's so that a local ID comes and they have a local number to return the call

    I make frequent calls to the UK, Australia and New Zealand and i live in the USA. I have a skype number for each of these countries so that people can call me back on a local vs an international number. I would like to be able to switch between country caller ID's so that it is not just showing a UK skype number wherever I call.
    It would be great to switch to Aus skype number as caller ID when calling clients in Australia etc.

  7. Unlimited calls to Bangladesh from Poland

    Rebtel app gave unlimited call from Poland to Bangladesh in 48 pln.

    I think you should also provide unlimited calls from poland to Bangladesh in a cheap rate.

    It would be great for me and my friends here in poland, if you give unlimited calls to Bangladesh from Poland.

    Thank you. Hope you will think about this.

  9. Thumbnail Adjustability

    Allow users to adjust the thumbnail of their profile picture like every other social media does. This should have been a feature that was available since day one. Having a profile picture showing all the wrong portions in the thumbnail appears sloppy and completely unprofessional - This goes double for people using Skype For Business.

  10. Call recording should seek permission from all the participants

    Whenever someone start the recording of the call, Skype should seek the permission from others in the chat/group chat.

  11. Unlink Skype Account from Microsoft account and Skype ID change

    There should an option to change your Skype ID or at least unlink your Skype account from your Microsoft account. I linked my friends Skype account to my Microsoft account by mistake and now there's no way I can unlink those 2 accounts or even atleast change the Skype ID. Its super annoying as its happened to some of the people I know as well who are equally irritated, I really hope there's a solution to this mess real soon

  12. I cancelled my Skype afternoon using it for about 10 years. How do I know that I no longer have an account? There has been no

    I have cancelled my account but have had no feedback from Skype acknowledging it received my request and cancelled the account. Is it policy to respond? If not, how do I know I succeeded?

  13. Switch off balance indication

    I am not using Skype to phone calls so I have no money on the Skype Out balance. I'd prefer to hide zero balance indication next to my name on the top of chat/contacts tab.

  14. Compact list mode for Favorite only in Skype App

    Hi!

    I was thinking since you guys have a compact list mode for your app in the settings, would it be also possible to just put an option to customize the compact list mode.

    For example, one can have an option to compact list just the FAVORITE chats or the just the REGULAR chats.

  18. Incoming video control

    Need ability for individual low bandwidth users in a large group of high-bandwidth users to turn of their incomming video to reduce their bandwidth, without handicaping others in the call. Right now the only solution is for everyone in the call to turn off their video when one user complains about bandwidth. Not a good use of an important Skype capability (video). Also causes hard feelings between participants (video advocates and video haters).

  19. Surveillance

    The verification process of the account is very static, non-user-friendly and very hard to prove that you are yourself, what is causing me a huge headache because now I can't access my skype with the services I paid for... I'm very disappointed with Microsoft... you could be more soft, easy-going...

  20. priority

    I would like to be able to mark certain chat messages as priority for faster search later. The other option would be being able to change the background color of those priority messages for faster scanning of things that are important.

    For business use, these would be great enhancements.
