  4. Upgrade

    Good morning.
    I have not found the possibility to check if Skype is updated or to update it manually. The update usually starts unexpectedly during an important conversation. For any improvement, thank you. Claudio

  5. Travel rewards for Skype during Coronavirus

    In light of the Coronavirus, many of my face to face business trips have been cancelled, and rescheduled as a Skype meeting instead. I was thinking of all the people who typically DON’T use Skype, and thinking a good promotion for you would be to somehow partner with the airlines to find a way to still honor travel reward points for rescheduled Skype meetings. I feel that frequent travelers would be happy to still earn their rewards and somehow this could promote Skype, and set a good reputation for being proactive and helpful during these unprecedented times.

    I’m not sure…

  6. Write on the screen when you Skype

    I have P.P.A - Primary Progressive Aphasia which I cannot talk. I talk to my friend in America often but I have to rely on my husband to talk for me! I want to write on the screen, ask a question and she will see on her screen and answer me by talking. I like to see my friend on the screen but I cannot talk!!!! Must be a lot of people cannot talk but we on the computer and be nice to see somebody talking to you and answering instead of emails. Thank you for your co-operation in this…

  7. Transferring live calls to another person

    It will be great to be able to transfer a live call to another person. Assistants usually filter calls before transferring them to managers. It could be a great option to add to Skype services. (I am not talking about forwarding a phone call to another device when not available. I know this option exists).

  8. Çoklu silme.

    Selam. Skype'ta bir kişiye gönderilen medya ögelerinin çoklu şekilde seçilerek silinmesi mümkün değil mi? Tek tek silmek bir hayli zaman alıyor. Seçerek silme özelliği de getirilmeli. Ayrıca bize gönderilen medyayı da silebilmeliyiz.

  10. Call Forwarding

    On Call Forwarding feature, if the option for forwarding in "1 second" is selected, then call forwarding doesn't seem to work. Fine on other time selections, like 5 seconds, the forwarding works fine.

  11. REGRESSION - CPU BUSY WHEN SKYPE IDLE!!!

    I have been told via skype support chat to send my bug report here becauase, and i quote, Our Product Team and Engineers are personally checking them and send responses. So here it goes:


    I keep filing bug reports via skype's Help -> Report a problem" menu for months telling you that skype keeps the CPU busy when it's idle, but I BOTH HAVE NO FEEDBACK FROM YOU NOR DO YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!. I'm trying again: on xubuntu 18.04 LTS x64 running on a 2-core 4-thread intel CPU, one of the threads JUMPS to ~50% anywhere from several minutes…

  15. "Show in folder option" for transferred files.

    It was on the classic Skype, why is not here? It's so frustrating if I have, for example, a video but my default player does not reproduce it, I cant find the file to do a "open with..."
    And no, "Save as..." doesnt feel like its the same.

  18. 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.

  19. 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
