  3. Make Auto Updating More Nuanced

    Two parts:
    1. Add an option to forego unit striding through minor revisions (8.48.0.51 -> 8.49.0.49) so to impose on user configurations much less frequently. A parametric option, e.g., "Apply major releases and every 10th minor release", would go a long way


    1. On Windows desktop updates, do not automatically deposit a shortcut and icon on the desktop, as many of us delete those every single time Skype muscles it on yet another time

  9. Skype LIGHT

    Current version of skype is extremely heavy. I loved Skype v7 - lightweight, gets things done, extended features for camera adjustments, everything one could dream about. With obligatory Skype v8 it is a nightmare, at times I can't type a short message cause it's just doesn't respond. I'm a developer myself, if you need any help, please drop me a line. If there's any chance we can resurrect v7 I'm totally in.

  14. We need to have a global delete feature for chats.

    After the latest update I found chats dating back to 2013 and have to delete them one at a time. Before the update my "recent chats" was empty. What a waste of time.

  19. Phone support is really a need instead of chat support

    Hi, I know that chat support is really efficient as a medium for helping customers. But there are lots of support that prefers to talk through phone more than typing their concerns.
