  1. I hope someone will seize the opportunity to make a business out of Skype Classic of course under new brand.

    hope someone will seize the opportunity to make a business out of Skype Classic of course under new brand. Skype 8 is horrible and if a company can come out with a communication facility that behaves like Skype 7, it will surely be a hit.

    Also, could someone in the US go to the supreme court to demand skype to reinstate the Skype Classic feature. The act of forced upgrade I think is a violation of a certain legal right. Could someone please look into this?

    Let's withdraw support for a company that do not listen to us and that…

  2. Skype Updates

    Stop making updates mandatory, give users the option to update or not. Some of us cannot always remember our usernames, apple id's or passwords to be able to update. Why?

    I have a disabled brother and we rely on Skype to catch up each week, but this week we could not because his Skype needed updating but neither of us could remember his Apple id, so again, give users the option.

  3. make letters bigger

    The new Skype has very small letters. During a conversation, I can hardly see what I'm typing or read what my contact is typing.

  5. Skype error since last update

    I have an issue with Skype (on PC - Windows 7) after the latest update (8.42.0.60).

    Since the update, I can't just exit Skype by right clicking on its icon next to the clock and chose 'exit'. Because if I do so, it closes Skype, but the icon stays there in the corner and it only goes away if I kill the remaining process in the task manager. If I open Skype again while the icon is still there it will just make another icon and so on, I had like 4 Skype icons there while testing.

    The other thing…

  6. Update SKYPE documentation

    UPDATE TO SKYPE DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED:

    Skype Recording
    Connect with contact
    Stay in smaller screen mode, NOT full screen
    Click on + (right bottom of screen) then click on “Start Recording” When done recording:
    Click on “Stop Recording “ (line at top left of screen)
    Finish your call
    Right-click on the Recording session (large grey block on right side of screen), then choose “Save to Downloads” or enter a directory of your choosing.

    The current documentation is incorrect; it needs updating.

  7. Suggestion

    Hello.
    How to delete chat history at once I had already suggested to you guys to please create an option so one can delete all the recent chat, call or conversation history at one click. As we delete all the messages or call history by selecting all of them and then delete them together by one click in our phones. Please create such an option in skype so it makes the job easier.

  9. Could u state somewhere the recommended phone specs & internet connection speeds for using Skype?

    Could you state somewhere some recommended camera specs/phone OS/ internet connection speeds, that would give users some good solid starting point when we are battling with poor video, or poor audio etc? It would give us some idea of whether we have a good enough phone or a fast enough internet connection.
    (Sorry if I haven't used the correct technical terminology above.)

  10. Logout and quit in one easy step.

    Why can't I log out and close this virus, Skype from the taskbar?
    Why do I have to maximize the app, log out of the account then go to the taskbar and quit this abomination?

  17. Restoring Removed Messages for Legal Purposes

    Hi! I think it would be better if you will create a feature that would enable us to restore or view removed messages. Coz I once had a case with my previous employer who accused me of sabotaging the company, they had a screenshot of my conversation with a colleague but when I checked it, they removed some of the messages I made which would could've helped me prove that I never sabotaged the company.

  20. Please allow desktop login from mobile device (I'm on Chrome)

    I have the app on my phone but I often like to log onto the desktop version of Skype as well. Until today (3/21/19) I was able to do so. Now it says that my browser is not supported. Please allow desktop access from mobile devices.

    Thanks!!
