  1. Bring back the old function of deleting contacts

    There are more than 800 unnecessary contacts on my skype. , Please add a function as in earlier versions of Skype, So that I can delete all contacts at once in a second !, Because of these contacts, Skype hangs and the application slows down. , Return this function! So that I can select all contacts and delete everything in a second with one click.
    I only have access to delete one contact at a time !, It's awful and inconvenient, it's crazy! It will take me all day !, Please return the function so that I can delete all…

  3. Bring back some of the Old Skype features

    how about going back to the old way skype was used. Where you can look up a country, city, age, male or female, and name. This was very useful for me locating friends who moved away.

  6. Manage what order our favorites list is in.

    We need the ability, as we did on the old version of Skype, to change the order of which our favorites appear. We cannot currently manage where our favorites sit on the list, so although I want someone to be at the top, I'm forced to scroll down because I cannot move them up.

  7. delete and keep contacts

    where do I add a new. contact? After calling a new contact , there used to be a sign: want to add on or similar and I was able to add the name. It disappeared and now I have numbers without name and
    made mistakes in dialing the wrong person.
    Please give a button for delete contact and add , make our lives easier. Otherwise I am glad Skyoe is there for us.
    Thank you
    MMO

  8. right click completed call number to add as a contact

    New Feature Added Yeah: add contact from contact screen allows phone numbers to be added as a contact and named. Now can I have a right click option on completed calls to add phone number as a contact. Should be a simple procedure call to the add contact dialogue that passes the phone number as a parameter. Hopefully a 5 minute fix that has great value to skype subscribers that pay to call non-skype numbers.

  13. Save contact names or merge contacts with people app.

    Every account has their one nickname and it's really annoying to understand who is every person by their nicknames, unless you see the picture icon (if there is any). I would be really convenient an option to save a contact like Viber or at least to merge account with address book (people app, android contact or ios address book).

  14. Grouping

    Would be nice to have the possibility to assign contacts to various groups, similar to "favorites" functionality.

  19. allow me to see the status of my contact (available, invisible, do not disturb etc.). Function not working well at present.

    Allow me to see the status of my contacts (available, do not disturb etc.). At the moment I am just calling hoping that my contact is available. After the call the status sometimes appears, which is crazy as I need this before I try and call.

  20. Create an option to let Skype start with the Contacts view as the default?

    My Skype version always starts with the Chats view. Creating an option to let users choose a different view, like Contacts which I use most, would be a better feature.
