  1. Desktop security email issue

    On a newly installed Win10/x64 the default installed Skype does not send any security code emails to either of my email adresses. Just letting you know. Also the browser one works, so I was able to use that to resolve my issue.

  2. Copy a phone number from the android add. How is this not already a basic function?

    Let users long press, and copy a number out of the Skype app instead of making us type it out like we're in 1988.

  3. Straight Pride stickers

    If you are truly about inclusion, include straight pride emojis or stickers. If not, you are guilty of discrimination

  5. Stop scamming your users with credit inactivation

    Hello Skype team,
    On March 15th I received an email sayign my credit would be inactivated and that I could reactivate it "at any time" by visiting my account and clicking "Reactivate credit". However, to my surprise, when I logged on on July 20th to do exactly that, there was no such button to click on. After much searching I found a page that said: "Reactivate Skype Credit | Your Balance | £0.00 | You do not have any Skype Credit to reactivate."
    Thankfully I had some time on my hands and contacted the live support over chat, which first…

  7. Please allow "Skype" as "Add-In" for outlook on web or Office 365

    Spent Several hours trying to integrate Skype with my outlook (Office 365 account). Was able to add "Zoom" very easily but was shocked to find that Skype was not in the add in options for Outlook on web.

  10. Skype is going backwards

    I remember in the first days of Skype there was a simple dial pad, you entered your number and hit one call button.

    Today I now need to press x, then < then click call, then +call, then Click Dial, then Choose a country from drop down tab, then Type in the number, then Click dial. 8 steps to make one call. WTF!

    I think go back to the simplified version please as when people make quite a few call this in annoying.

    If we continue down this path, Skype will probably add in the future... click are you sure…

  11. Press a Number to Connect the Call... All wastage... Please remove it from my number

    Recently came to know that if someone calls to my Number they need to Dial Random Number. Simply a headache started.
    I've been using this number for years... Don't know how to get rid of it?
    Skype you've done the life more irritating.

  13. NotePad/textPad/Sticky notes

    Could you please think on about a sticky note on Skype?

    Many people use same ID in office and home and other as well. and they need to note down some point in office and want to work on that at home. On that case we need a sticky note to note and remember that point in skype.

    may I know is it possible any platform where we can note down on skype?

  15. Skype keeps getting worse

    Hello, I only would like to know if you are aware that version after version Skype is always worse. From 5 stars to zero in my opinion.

    Now search into messages is simple unusable, you cannot find almost anything, in the past you could search very easily in years of chats
    Phone features are terrible.
    Phone Contacts and Skype Contacts are still a mess.

    I suggest to came back to basics... and came back on features that was perfectly working.

  19. Pressing a random in order to connect the call is absolutely a waste of time.

    We work with an IVR and adding the ability to press a random number to connect the call will not work for us.

    Give the option to remove this feature ASAP. Its already disrupting our service and we're loosing.

    Chat reference: 1477711917

    If not fixed, we'll need to find a solution somewhere else that doesn't force us to press a random number

  20. Letter Colors

    I use a black background and the letters are a light grey. The light gray is hard to read. Yellow, Yellow-orange would be easier to see.
