  3. Remove Alphabet letters in contact list

    Having a letter of the alpahbet before all the contacts starting with that letter makes the list footprint unnecessarily big on screen. Make them and the profile pictures go away with compact setting

  4. Be able to see how long you have been contacts with someone on skype

    You should be able to see when you added someone or when they added you on skype! :D I think it will be very helpful to a lot of people.

  5. Inform me who is/are the mutual contact/s

    if i know who is the mutual contact to the contact suggestion , it might encourage me to add a beneficial contact . Facebook allows to see who is mutual "friend" - contact to Facebook's suggestion of a "friend" -contact...so it is not like all should be against it , considering most have facebook .

  7. Activity a few days ago

    Tell me please, with the updated version of Skype, they no longer write the exact time when a person is online. Writes Activity a few days ago. Faced with such a problem, I now can’t see if a person deleted his account at all or what was wrong with him, was he online, day, two, month, a year ago.

  8. CONTACT SHARING

    DO NOT SHARE USERS CONTACTS WITH OTHER USERS ... create a privacy setting that does not allow other users to see your contact list. It is 2019! It is a breach of privacy ...

  9. Ref: Mutual Contacts

    Hi,
    Your suggestions in Skype of lists of contacts which have mutual friends is a total breach of privacy, there are many reasons why this should not be shown to others or myself, on most occasions people do not want others to know of mutual contacts and even if one does not know to which friend the mutual contact belongs it can be easily found out and causes a lot of arguments and suspicions and jealousy. It’s practically the same as putting mutual friends in the newspaper for all to see, who came up with this ridiculous option? Please get…

  10. Suggestion of contacts depending on mutual contacts is violation of privacy and my confidentiality of contacts

    I don't like the new feature of suggesting mutual contacts to be added. I have some contacts which I don't want to let other people on my Skype to know. But this feature shows the list of all my contact to other contact as suggestion that you have one mutual contact. This is not good as per my privacy. There should be some option to handle and control this if I want to share my contact details with other contacts or not. For example in my skype I have added my clients as well as my employees. But I want…

  12. Make searching the Skype directory optional when searching for contacts

    I want to be able to stop Skype wasting time and bandwidth - and performing sluggishly while creating clutter - searching the Skype directory. When I search for a local contact, I don't want directory suggestions. I want to be able to search locally by default, without getting the whole world thrown at me. It's nonsense. Accessing the directory should be a deliberate and lengthy operation, not squeezed in with the main app flow, showing clutter, slowing Skype down, and thus reducing productivity

  15. delete and keep contacts

    please make it easier to delete old contacts and better to keep new ones. At one time there was a sign , when one dialed a new number asking if one wanted to keep this one. Where is it ? I would like to edit faster without going through hoops . If you have already something for these issues where is it , make it easy!
    thank you

  18. 10 years of my CONTACTS LISTS are gone

    10 years of my CONTACTS LISTS are gone with your forceful update to the latest version. Either you would have allowed o use classic version that has the list feature or not forced to new version. As the result, my business has come to a standstill and I am back to square 0. Now would you take responsibility for this loss? WHY CANT SUCH A BASIC LIST FEATURE NOT BE ADDED IN THE NEW VERSION.

    FRANKLY, I FEEL LIKE COMMITTING SUICIDE. And you will be responsible for my DEATH. I mean what I said.

    You cannot see who is online and who is not with this new version.
