  1. Sorting contacts by groups

    In the classic version of Skype, I had different groups in my contacts: WORK, SCHOOL, FRIENDS, and so on.
    In the new Skype, all contacts are combined into one common group.
    You can add the ability to sort contacts by groups as in the classic version ?

  11. Get 808 on board!

    Why is the 808 area code not allowed? I can't send messages to my friends and vice versa. Get 808 on board y'all! It's the 50th state and not a foreign country!!!! Why is this even a question?

  13. When i remove a contact, they should not show on my contacts anymore. They still show up as "active now" on my contacts.

    On older version of skype, when you remove a contact they are no longer on you contacts list. On these newer versions, they still show and their status is also shown. So, if there is a contact i removed and they are still active and online they show as such. Cluttering up my contact list. The only way to remove them is to block them so they do not show anymore. Please fix this

  14. Contact Colour Schemes

    Could we set different colour scheme for each contact or groups of contacts. This is to ensure it's obvious we're chatting to the right person and not the one we're bitching about. Sorry boss!

  18. Because of Scammers from West Africa , put under contact info where theyre from . Like, using a phone number in Nigeria .

    Putting contact location under contact profile picture so we can root out West African scammers that are running scams on the socials. I recommend this to Facebook and now location of contact shows under their profile pic. Thousands of scammers are rooted out this way .
