  2. Read contacts from Hotmail

    Skype should read/use (or at LEAST have import functionality) from Hotmail contacts!

    WHY do I need to manually type in my friends contact information in Skype - when it's already in Hotmail contacts?

  3. forward text messages or voice mails to an email ...

    You should have a feature to forward text messages or voice mails to an email ... i've gone a month or more at a time not knowing that a contact was trying to get in touch with me via skype ... as it is, i can only see the messages if i search through each and every contact account information ... which i'm not about to do every day ...

  7. Add Contact > "ENTER / RETURN" after name automatically adds the contact

    If you "EDIT" a contact and type a name, then when you're finished and press "ENTER / RETURN", Skype should interpret that keystroke as an instruction to save & close the contact under that name

  9. Skype should add the local time in the country of the contact in the chat list with the name of the contact.

    Skype should add the local time in the country of the contact in the chat list with the name of the contact so that I can immediately see what is the time there before I make a call.

  11. Create your own groups of contacts not just favorites

    I think only having 'favorites' is frustrating. I would like to have 'Team' and 'Active Projects' and 'Closed Projects' since my clients and leaders like to constantly create new chat groups and also allowing the minimizing of these groups with notification count for example .... 'Team (2)' <- This indicates I have two messages waiting my attention. thanks Skype.

  12. Block someone without seeing your online information and conversations

    I offer Skype an important suggestion. Once we block a contact they should no longer have our information! That is to say no longer seeing us online and our conversations and our account. (Even if we delete and block the person). But have a possibility of being able to unblock the contact without embarrassment.

  14. Skype is missing feature to add new contacts by scanning QR code

    All other IM apps can scan QR code to add new contact natively without using 3rd part QR scanner. Skype needs to add this feature.

  16. To beable to delete 1-20 group chats at a time

    So I have loads of group chats that my friends made and added me to but I can only delete one at a time . Please change that it take so long to get them all gone . I have been getting rid of 40 group chats and it has been 3 days to do that . It would be easier to be able to delete as many group chats as I want at one time

  17. Hide

    It would be nice to have an option to hide my contact list detail or password protect the contacts in my list so only contact will be visible is the one I want.
    Some time Skype account is seen by other family member while checking my phone, I would like to hide the details so no one can enter in my list.

    Looking forward to see that option in Skype.
    Thank you for good service.

    Kind Regards
    Abul

  18. Please add an edit feature so that contacts are always current.

    Skype has a contact in it that the number is no longer current. There needs to be a way to update contacts so they are current.

  20. Removing the names of past contacts from Skype

    I have deleted a contact from my Skype account. The name doesn't exist in my iPhone's contact list as well. The contact no longer appears in the Skype contact list in both iPhone and Windows desktop. However, it does appear in Calls -> All -> People in Windows Desktop version and also under contacts -> All in iPhone version of Skype.

    I would appreciate if this feature gets included in Skype such that one easily can remove the names of past contacts from their Skype app.
