  1. Cierre de una llamda

    Actualmente si estoy trabajando en un programa y a la vez converzando por skype, y la otra persona cierra la llamada, automáticamente se me abre skype interrumpiendo lo que estoy haciendo en ese momento. ¿Se puede quitar esa función, de que al cancelar una llamada no se abra el skype mientras esté en otra actividad?

  4. Skype consumes too much RAM

    I did upgrade my skype to the newest version is 8.65, and unbelievable skype consumes too much my memory, eventhough skype is running in the background and in non-active but it consumes sometimes from 500MB to 1GB RAM.
    I wanna know the reason why and how to makes skype uses less RAM than now ?

  6. reactions

    Thank you for introducing configurable reactions to messages!
    It would be extremely helpful to be able to configure the order in which those reactions appear, as currently they are sorted just by the order they've been added.

  11. To be able to disable split screen during skype recording

    It is would be nice to have options of excluding the split screen during video recording. Sometimes I like to make a video of Skype recording but do not want myself in there. Disabling this would be a nice option.

  13. NO ONE'S HERE TO TALK TO! I NEED HELP LOGGING INTO MY SKYPE AND YOU SEND ME ROUND IN CIRCLES WITH NO HUMAN CONTACT. HELP

    NO ONE'S HERE TO TALK TO! I NEED HELP LOGGING INTO MY SKYPE AND YOU SEND ME ROUND IN CIRCLES WITH NO HUMAN CONTACT
    My previous Skype address was freddy@performandfunction.co.uk, but I no longer have access to this account. I therefore can't log back into my skype, and I've been unable to talk to anyone - I've been trying for 2 months and your automated processes are insanely frustrating and ineffective
    My skype name is freddybrown1984 and my current personal email is freddybrown1984@gmail.com. Some assistance or at least some contact?

  15. create a option of blocking someone after accepting his or her request.

    I am a user of skype and its been years since I'm using this amazing and really helpful application but, in all these years no one ever created a option to block someone after accepting his or her request. I would be happy if you think about my idea and value my opinion.🙂

  17. A place for saving messages & files till when we want.

    It would be really great if it was a place for saving specially files which we recieve in groups, in order to access them later easily;
    but now it will be destroyed after some time that pas from the day it was sent.
    So please check this idea and make it happen if you think it would be great.
    It can be like the "make available offline" feature in google drive, so we can access easily to files.
    Thanks

  18. Better service

    Don’t have the clients waiting over 6 hours for the live chats. Provide a platform to make this exchange of support more convenient.
