  9. There should be a way of being able to see your password. Can you assist with this please?

    There should be a way of seeing your password. It takes forever to change your password on Skype. They need to simplify.

  16. Latest unread message should show on top

    Currently when we create a group and if any person send message it does not show on top

    It show on top and there should sorting to show "sort by unread"

    but your sort by unread does not work even if contacts are in favorite list or not

    User has to scroll so down to see unread or latest message

  18. Pause option in downloading

    There should be an option of "Pause" when we are downloading a file.
    Only download or cancel buttons are not enough while downloading multiple files or a large size file.
