  2. Allow Skype users to send many new contact requests and search many contacts in Skype without their accounts getting suspended

    Allow Skype users to send many new contact requests and search many contacts in Skype without their accounts getting suspended. I use Skype chat and friend making websites where people post their Skype IDS and send new contact requests to each other to chat and make new friends. Hence, I will be sending many new contact requests and searching many contacts in Skype. I want to search many contacts in Skype to talk to new people and add them on Skype and add many new contacts without my account getting suspended.

  5. Show local time for contacts

    I would be nice to see contacts local time, especial for Countries with different time zones Read: USA Canada Australia ………..and the fact that DTS are on different dates in different part of the world, would make it even more useful .

    Include a "Category" button so that it is easy to categorise your contacts under a heading you create e.g. Work,Friends,Clients,Solicitors etc

  13. Non-Contacts shouldn't show up in skype search directory initially

    The people who have been previously messaged but are now no longer contacts should not come up first on the list when searching for people on skype.

  16. Make groups in skype easier

    Could not be made clearer to make groups? in the likings of Skype for business. In the regular Skype app its nit really clear how to do that. But would be easy for groups that regularly coverse over skype together. Non business related.

  17. Call Contact Shortcut

    Create file based shortcut for calling certain contacts. So hotkeys can be used to call someone or a group. Hit programmable key on keyboard to call friend/group, rather than to simply run skype. Save time.

  20. Show when a contact is on a call and therefore "busy".

    I would like Skype to show when a contact is on a call and therefore "busy". This way I know if I send a message, they might not respond right away. It would also useful when they don't set their Status to Do Not Disturb, but are on a call.
