  1. Create page with Windows Desktop Insider Release Notes

    For those using the Insider version, we still need to know what's new so we can actively test out new features and report bugs. There's only Release Notes for public channel versions, but no the Insider versions. Or better yet, make the Insider Release Notes available right in the Insider App.

  2. Actualizaciones o tocada de cojones

    ¿Porqué no dejáis de tocar la polla de una puta vez con la mierda de actualizaciones?
    Es como si cada dos días la poli te quita la cartera y te amenaza con no devolvértela hasta que no demuestres que eres tú

  3. SKYPE updates and older computers and browsers

    I would like to know when SKYPE keeps updating their software and servers, that they cannot also allow the software for those of us with older computers, and who use older browsers for Firefox and Google Chrome? I was using SKYPE online and SKYPE messenger perfectly fine two days ago, and now with all these updates, I cannot access my account. I get the "browser not supported" warning window. It seems ridiculous that in order to do so I need to buy a new computer, which I, and I'm sure many others, cannot afford. Why not allow the updates AND…

  5. Custom Message Bank

    Why is there no option to record a custom recording for our message bank? This just seems like common sense. Doing a google around it seems this has been a problem for many years, not sure why Skype doesnt listen to their customers. I cant use a generic message for my business phone so am now forced to go and find another provider, quite pathetic Skype.

  9. Status should be editable

    Users should be able to set custom status, such as "gaming, out for an hour, sleeping....". that would be nice and helpful!

  17. Viewing status of "Skype for Business" users by "Skype" users

    Viewing status of "Skype for Business" users by "Skype" users

    In updated version of Skype, users can not view status of “Skype for Business” contacts. Service request number 1460446323 was raised and I get feedback that this feature is currently not available. Please do include this very useful feature in upcoming upgrade.

  20. When Again ...

    Once again when are we going to see the application back to version 7 standards ?
    Please stop saying 'we hear you', please just answer the simple question, When will Microsoft release a crediable release that addresses the many failings of version 8 ?
