  1. Can you please provide a link to direct download of the Skype APK for android on your website?

    Provide a direct download link of the latest Skype APK for android on the Skype website.
    Some folks have multiple devices (kids devices, which do not provide their Google login info) to download the Skype app onto.
    Would help simplify installation with an APK to directly download without needing to go through Google.
    It also may be a turn off to some folks, if they need to have Google's permissions to download 3rd party software/app.
    Why must Google need to control who installs 3rd party software?

  7. Porting Skype to FreeBSD

    Unfortunately, there is no version of Skype available for FreeBSD. There is a Skype for Linux version 8.55.0.141 available, however. As such, it should not be a major problem to port a version over the FreeBSD. It would be very much appreciated.

  8. Una App para Microsoft

    Buenas noches equipo de Microsoft:                        

    Hoy les quiero presentar una idea sin precedentes que cambiara la vida de muchas personas. Somos un equipo de amigos que en nuestro tiempo libre hemos desarrollado la estructura de una App que revolucionará el mercado y la vida de muchas personas. 

    Espero que se encuentren un poco atraídos a descubrir de que se trata todo esto.

    Tenemos imágenes de como se verá la App en todas sus secciones. Y hemos documentado todo su funcionamiento. 

    Para mayor información y el envió del Pitch Deck…

  12. Deleting already previously deleted contacts of the Reccomended List when Finding New People

    This annoys me but I don't know how much it annoys other people. When I am going to find new people to talk to the list down below where it shows the people it recommends I talk to before I type in the username has everyone I have ever talked to even if I "deleted" their contact. Is there a feature that will allow me to delete those already deleted people? I want that to be fixed. When you delete the contact you won't ever see them on your account

  14. Skype and Android Auto

    In today's modern, electronic, and connected world, it would be FANTASTIC if Skype integrated with Google's Android Auto program!

    I use Skype EVERYWHERE but have to resort back to regular text messaging when in my car because the Google Assistant says it can't interact with Skype when using Android Auto. :(

  20. date format

    It is essential to either allow the user to choose date format, or use dd-mmm-yy. I say essential because the numeric dd/mm/yy and mm/dd/yy can be confused on 132 days each year. That 36% of the year.
