  1. Need to save subtitles from a meeting call to a file.

    I like the new subtitles feature. It potentially provides the notes from an online meeting. We need to save these to a file.

  2. Bring Back Disabling Formatting!

    Please, for the love of all things holy, bring back the ability to disable special formatting. This is a deal breaker and the UTTER inability to turn it off so I have plain, basic text is off-putting and making me seriously consider leaving Skype altogether after having been a paying customer for YEARS

  9. Sign in and out - Privacy issue

    Please set back the option to automatically sign out from skype upon shut down of computer. Also, when turn computer on again, it is OK to start skype automatically (if I choose that option) but not toLOG ME IN-specially because I never said I want skype to REMEMBER MY PASSWORD. Even if skype saved/recognize my user, when I turn on skype It should ask for my password before log in, not to sign me in automatically.

    This is really a PRIVACY ISSUE! It allows ANYONE access to others skype accounts.. This is a serious breach of EVERYONE`S PRIVACY.

    Please fix…

  13. Dialing from Mac Contacts using Skype is not longer working with Skype.

    I had Microsoft SkypeABDialer and SkypeABCaller bundle in my Address book library on my mac. This would allow me to dial using skype direct from Apple contacts Now that I upgraded to Mojave it is no longer working. This is a very important feature for me. Is someone working on updating the ABbundle so when you select a phone number in apple contacts it gives you the option of dialing from your cell phone or dialing from Skype.Please it is very hard to find info about this. I think the ABCalling bundle was included with Apple Mountain Lion. It functioned…

  17. Wear OS (Google Wear) support

    The previous Skype version had Google Wear support. It would be great if we could start Skype conversation, calls from smartwatches based on Google Wear OS.

  19. Emojis/Gifs/Memes/Text effects - Make Optional via Toggle On/Off choices

    A toggle off switch as in-app OPTION so that emojis/gifs/memes/ handwritten etch-a-sketch/visibleink-inator special effects no longer inadvertently poison otherwise serious communications. Notice the complete absence of emojis in this space :-(
