  2. Add a way to go to messages from Gallery to see the conversation happened around the shared item

    Suppose I'm viewing gallery in any skype chat and now if I want to see the conversation happened around that particular media file or whatever I had shared, I just can't. I manually have to scroll the messages one by one until I find it.

    For reference you should try Telegram. When you;re viewing any images in it and when you right click on it, it gives you choice to go to that messages. So you can see the conversation happened around that media file. I hope this makes sense to you and you guys will work on the resolution.

  4. Skype should never change the status to Active now on its own!!!

    Every time I sign in to Skype after a reboot it changes my status from Away (which I set manually before quitting Skype) to Active now! It's a completely illogical behavior which ruins the product for me

  6. Startup Window location

    Skpe 8.55.0.141 no longer returns to where I placed it on startup, instead the window is in the middle of the screen and I have to move it to where I want it, where it was when I quit.
    OSX Mojave

  7. Skype should use the cache directory to cache files, not the config directory

    On Linux, the ~/.cache/ directory is for caching stuff. Cached data should NOT be put in ~/.config/skypeforlinux/Cache.

    There is a reason we have ~/.cache: so we don't have to back all that stuff up.

  10. Live tiles for Windows 10 Mobile and PC

    It'd be great to have a live tile feature for Skype on Windows Mobile and PC. Live tiles would show recent messages, contacts etc

  11. Make your touch tone codes compatible with rest of the world!!

    Your "new age" touch tones don't work with any menu systems. Get with the program! Phone contact is useless if you can't navigate a menu system.

  12. Online chat or call in customer service for account holders

    How about easy online chat for skype users with current accounts. It's very difficult to even find it if one already exists. If one is paying for services (and for 13 plus years) surely one should be able to reach someone easily.

  16. Label group

    Add a functionality for Grouping Contacts and Group under a Label and allow expand/collapse button for label.
    e.g. lets say i have a label by name "Pet lovers" & i can add label to groups "dog lovers" label: "pet lovers" , "cat lovers" label: "pet lovers" and expand/collapse label in contacts & recent chats when needed to manage multiple chats of multiple category.

  17. Drawing in screen share

    Drawing in screen share will be very helpful if you add it. When we share the screen then we always have to say go to the left side corner and click there etc. If the user can draw then its super easy to show.
