  4. Make Skype available for Chrome OS / Chromebook Users

    I would like to see a Skype App for Chromebook users (Chrome OS). Many students use Chromebooks, and it would be a great way for them to keep in touch.

  8. Allow blocking of numbers using wildcards. I.e., block from a particular area code or exchange code.

    Allow blocking of (or allow) numbers using wildcards. I.e., block from a particular area code or exchange code. Thus stopping calls where only the last like 4 digits change but the calls are from the same place.

  15. X button should minimize

    When Skype is closed by pressing the "x" button, it's not minimized on the task bar, it disappears completely and if push up notifications are closed, you don't know when you received a message. The old Skype had this feature working.

  17. New Skype is not minimizing to the notification, but is quitting once the X is pressed. The old version would stay on instead of quitting.

    Skype should minimize to the notification area instead of quitting. The old version would stay on, unless we sign it off.

  20. Skype for Linux

    Please make a Skype for Linux 32 bit version available and functional again.
    If Skype can work on Windows 32 bit then certainly it can work on Linux too.
    Also, if Skype Web can work on 32 bit so can it work with a Direct Client.
    The Web Client is not sufficient, uses more memory and CPU. Also the Web Client remains in Beta with its less than full capabilities.
