  1. Please add the option back to save a list of login ids

    Please add the option back to save a list of login ids. It's tedious to retype every time. Several people use the same computer. Also it goes through the audio/video setup every time: please don't

  4. Generating a company invoice for Skype credit purchases

    It would be beneficial for professionals to be able to generate an official invoice when purchasing Skype Credit, even though there is no paid VAT on this it is still a company expense.
    Case number: 1473715670.

  5. Let Skype Users Resolve Account Issues Directly

    A few days ago I made some kind of mistake while trying to enter information for a new credit card. After I tried to enter the info a couple of times, I was notified that my Skype (and Microsoft) account had been "locked", due to detection of "suspicious activity". After chatting with a Skype customer service rep, I was directed to fill out an online form...and then wait for a response from "the Team". Two days later...no communication from anybody, and my Skype account is still frozen (which is having an effect on my business).

    Yesterday, while doing the same…

  8. what the **** is wrong with you people?

    Go find amongst the huge mound of hipster clothes in your bedroom a metal box with a red button on it with the embedded lettering: Self Destruct - Keep it nicely pressed for about 8 seconds while you contemplate the fact that you've contributed almost nothing of importance to human existence in your sad, pathetic life.

    I have phone that allows me to have twin app like Facebook, Messenger, Viber and Snapchat. But Skype isnt in the list. I hope you can make it supported for twin app. It is frustating to switch account everytime. Like sign in and sign out again and again!

  15. missing languages in iTunes store

    looking on the Skype app in the iTunes store, it seems that all recent languages added by apple still not added to the description of the app. Tested it with Polish, Czech, Hungarian, actually all new languages from December 2018 ar missing there. Look on that news from apple:

    https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=12132018a

    If you like I can provide you the translation of the description text in Polish. If other langs are missing and needed, I can create a translation on Transifex and make a call for translations.

    Just send me a feedback if you want this page also to be translated correctly:

  17. PLEASE FIX Export chat history

    This just was released, but the format is all messed up, the chat is unreadable, are pages and pages of mixed contacts, days, and codes like this:

    06T23:36:50.342Z","messagetype":"RichText","version":1557185810391.0,"content":"ok","conversationid":"8:","from":"8:,"properties":null,"amsreferences":null},{"id":"1557185806063","displayName":".","originalarrivaltime":"2019-05-06T23:36:46.029Z","messagetype":"RichText","version":1557185806063.0,"content":"","conversationid":"8:","from":"8","properties":null,"amsreferences":null},{"id":"1557185795328","displayName":"*******","originalarrivaltime":"2019-05-06T23:36:35.295Z","messagetype":"RichText","version":1557185795328.0,"content":

    Just add an export chat button next to each contact and let us have the old function back.

  18. Change security requirements from just phone number to email address (and/or 2FA)

    It's rather backwards to only be able to verify our account by receiving a text or call on a number which may very well not be accessible when traveling overseas, or losing your phone. Other options would be very welcome

  19. Make Skype profile email change recovery email

    When going to edit profile settings where it has email. Changing the primary email should also change the recovery email. I see no reason why it should be required to be changed in accounts.live.com
