  1. Visual voicemail for telephone calls

    Please give Skype users a free voicemail box that they can have calls routed from their phone to the Skype app for visual voicemail.
    I think adding a feature like this will let Microsoft take over more of the mobile market by giving users a free, easy visual voicemail service.

  2. Unlink Skype Account from Microsoft account and Skype ID change

    There should an option to change your Skype ID or at least unlink your Skype account from your Microsoft account. I linked my friends Skype account to my Microsoft account by mistake and now there's no way I can unlink those 2 accounts or even atleast change the Skype ID. Its super annoying as its happened to some of the people I know as well who are equally irritated, I really hope there's a solution to this mess real soon

  4. Let us disable graphical emoticons

    Skype used to have this features, until it was silently removed. Its really annoying. We want that feature back. Its not a difficult feature to program. Adding a toggle would take a few minutes to make. I'm sure me or any of the other programmers here would gladly do it for you, for free.

  5. Save call recordings automatically on call completion

    I recorded a call and accidentally ended the call before stopping the recording. The entire recording was lost forever.

    I would suggest that either recordings are automatically ended and saved upon completion of the call or that a dialog pops up warning you that you need to save the recording before exiting the call or it will be lost.

    I just lost a 20 minute interview with an author. I am going to have to embarrass myself and ask her to do it again.

  6. LIOS CON CUENTAS DE SKYPE Y MICROSOFT

    UNA SUGERENCIA PARA LOS DESARROLLADORES: EN LUGAR DE CREAR UNA NUEVA CUENTA A LOS CLIENTES, CON LA COMPRA DE MICROSOFT, DEJEN LAS VIEJAS CUENTAS QUE TENEMOS, PARA EVITAR CONFUSIONES CON LOS PAGOS Y LAS ACTIVACIONES DE LOS MISMOS.

  7. ******** guys, with all my heart! ********! You destroyed Skype in many many ways. Now I cannot find a way to type lowercase i.

    guys, with all my heart! ! You ruined Skype in many many ways. Now I cannot find a way to type lowercase i in chats. The contrast between your market cap and your level of stupidity is revigorating for all the morons in the world.

  13. Barrierefrei Seh-Behinderung

    Barrierefrei ist die neue Skype Version gar nicht. Es gibt sehr viel Menschen mit Seh-Behinderung.
    1,- Unheimlich wichtig wäre das die Grüne und Rote "Telefonsymbol" erhalten bleibt. Es ist für schwach sehenden ohne Hilfe nicht mehr Möglich zu telefonieren mit Skype!

    2,- Warum sehen wir nur Namen und die Profilbilder von Kontakten nicht mehr, wenn wir aus der liste jemand auswählen? 3,- Wieso wird der Chat schreib-Zeile immer kleiner? Diese Änderungen machen aus dem gern genutzten Skype eine nutzloses App.
    Ps. Automatische - Anrufannahme funktioniert bei Windows, Pc/Laptop nicht wenn das App-Fenster nicht geöffnet ist, auch wenn diese durch Hintergrund…

  14. Camera test

    Please add a test audio/video feature so I can line my shot up before an important call/interview. Doing it during a call is highly unprofessional and can make a bad impression.

  15. Personal Message for incoming calls

    I'm in Communications so it is rather important when media people call that they hear my name and my voice so they know they've reached the correct number as they are often on deadlines.

  20. Ensure that sign-in credentials are kept after updating

    Skype updates frequently. After every update it forgets my username and password and I have to re-enter them. This is very inconvenient
