  10. Hide Contacts That Have Not Shared Details With You!!

    In the old Skype it was better. You could hide the contacts who have not shared their details with you. Now we have all the contacts visible. This new version is a mess. I suggest that we have an option to hide the contacts who have not shared details with us.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
