  5. hope that u add features from BBM because bbm users are looking for an alternative to bbm.. we need broadcast & timed messages and channels

    make it a social and chat app like bbm.. it was half way there but they are going to shut down.. so if u can make it happen before bbm close it would be perfect. if u use bbm now u would understand what i mean.. just start with broadcast msgs because people wants to send a message to many people at once

  9. Microsoft sabotaged Skype for XP and Vista users.

    Reply to Andre from the Microsoft Community on 5/4/19:

    Andre,

    Thanks for your input.

    I don't think support has anything to do with it. Support for XP STOPPED YEARS AGO, and for Vista not long after that. ALL THAT TIME MY SKYPE WORKED. Now suddenly it does not immediately after an "advice" from Microsoft to update the operating system which I refuse to do?

    Do you or anyone else in the community believe this is or can substantiate it to be anything else but, let's say an extortion? You don't buy an upgrade, too bad, we will sabotage your Skype. …

  10. The feature to delete a date and time on a conversation in Skype is not available. List is getting longer and longer, who need such info.

    The feature to delete a date and time on a conversation in Skype is not available. List is getting longer and longer, who need such info. This feature was available before Microsoft took over. That time you just click on HISTORY and DELETE and that was all. Now if you want to delete history, you delete also contact. It doesn't make sense. And I am not talking about messages, but just about to delete a date and time on a conversation in Skype without loosing contact's name and address.
    Thank you for your consideration.
    Regards,
    Peter

  11. Give the user base a view of task currently being worked on

    Give the user base a view of the REAL tasks currently being worked on.

    For years now "new features" keep being rolled out when no-one actually requires them, and there seem to be no way of knowing if the most critical features that are still missing are actively being developed.

    You should publish an ordered list of requests (Your Scrum sprints/Kanban boards with the real stories and real bugs if you actually do agile) so that everyone knows what is really being developed and the real progress.

    UserVoice unfortunately does not cut it since there is no priority fields no…

  13. lock settings

    For people who are not tech minded or mentally handicapped could we have a simple interface with settings which can be locked and to ensure that payment and subscriptions are not entered into without a passcode or password. I just found that my dad has subscribed to calls to India and to add skype credit, neither of which he intended to do and neither of which he needs.

  15. Show currently active chat's name in taskbar title instead of "Skype"

    Everyone already knows that it's a Skype window, show some relevant information like Skype7 which showed the contact's name of the active chat.
