  4. hide contacts phone number

    The user should be able to hide contact's skype name and phone number.
    It's a privacy feature. Say I want to allow my friend or partner to use my skype for calling my contacts but don't want to allow him copy my contacts Skype ID and Phone number, then I check on "Keep my contacts' profile private" which disables checking the profile details of my contacts without entering password.

  5. Bulk deletion feature for contact list

    I've seen other people posting about this. But I find extraordinary that this feature does not exist.
    If importing contacts in bulk is an option, why deletion is not?

    Who has the time of the day to delete hundreds of contacts, one by one?

    This is not Microsoft standard. I am not sure if they will discontinue this app since it has become worse along the years instead of improving the user experience.

  7. Hide message from a blocked contact in a group

    Other members are a pain in a group chat. Even I block them I still see their message or their profile photo in the group member list.

  8. A way to drop people off your skype account. This used to be very easy. Now I cannot find way to do it on here.

    It used to be so easy to drop another person from your contacts on Skype. Now I cannot find ANY way of doing this. I have some "dead" accounts on my skype and no way of removing them.

  9. Multi-select Deletion of Contacts and Delete All Feature (Case Number 1487623533)

    Multi-select Deletion of Contacts and Delete All Feature (Case Number 1487623533)

    Facebook-style shady tactics come to mind with the fact that importing contacts is super simple via the phone app share feature but deleting them in bulk is super painful as this requires a 3 to 4 step process for individual contact.

    Please fix this asap. I'm a huge fan of Microsoft but this is off-putting to say the least.

    Thx,

    Steve R.

  10. Searching blocked contact in the contacts list

    In the original Skype, one was able, trough the Search function, to look for any skype username, including the blocked ones. This is not possible in current Skype.
    I would kindly request to enable again this feature, because currently, one cannot search usernames of the blocked contacts and this is troublesome.
    Thank you.

  12. Virtual reality calling in Skype

    i think virtual reality could change Skype calls like for example 3D calling can be a good suggestion.

  14. 希望skype能设计一个好友列表里好友分组管理的功能

    当好友比较多时不容易管理。好友分组类别如:家人、朋友、同事,等等,每个列表都可以收起来或展开,最好是自定义创建列表,重命名。

  16. Information about adding new contact

    It would be nice to be able to see when was the person added to the contact list, without saving the conversation.
    Or is there any way to find that out?

  19. Tag the Users

    It would be good to tag the user(s) so that it is easy to remember. For example, I can tag persons A, B, C as DBA. It is easy to remember people if they can be tagged.
