  2. Add Skype Classic back, or old Skype for Web.

    Ok, so another user posted the same thing, but I want to post this too, so it could possibly gain more attention. I think at this point, we (the Skype Classic fanbase) really want Skype Classic back. And to be honest, if you actually did, I think more people would come back on Skype. The only reason more people are moving over to Discord is because you're disabling are favourite stuff, and it's heartbreaking for us. And if this post gets ignored, then I won't be surprised, because all M$ staff ignore things that are even related to Skype Classic!…

  6. Reminders for personal/ group chats

    Provision for Reminders (Daily, Weekly, Monthly etc), as Skype is mostly used for corporate purposes. Reminders will be a great addition to all the features available. For current use, as reminders are not available, we are using Meeting calls as 'reminders', but it does not seem appropriate.

  7. Feature: Scroll with Mouse Wheel

    Include: Mouse Wheel scrolling for message and contact panes.

    This does not exist in the current, non-classic, version of Skype and damages the efficiency and mainstream use.

  8. Skype for Tobii/Dynavox/Communicator 5

    Skype use to work with Tobii Dynavox/Communicator 5, an augmentative alternative communication device/platorm for nonverbal people, many of whom suffer social isolation as a result of severely reduced mobility. With Skype 8, this functionality is no longer availabile to them, apparently because it cannot be managed solely with keystrokes. Returning this functionality is critical to the quality of life and mental health for thousands of users who otherwise will continue to suffer limited contact with loved ones, especially during stay at home orders from the coronavirus panemic. Thank you for your consideration.

  9. Improvements urgently needed by skype

    We need these improvements for Skype:


    • A record when somebody kicks you from a group to know who was it and when.

    • To know who was hanged out by who on grupal calls, know who was it and when, and show when this guy leaves the call, because we're tired when the people kicks out people and we don't know who was it and when.


    • Another error is when somebody kicks out to somebody from call, the kicked person stills on the call and still sharing webcam.


    • When we click on kick on group, the group will should be finished…

  11. automatically close window when done

    -automatically close window when done-
    My elderly sister can no longer use a computer due to the ravages of Parkinsons. It is difficult for her to move, especially to rise and walk to answer the phone. So I set up Skype to automatically answer, without video, so anyone can just talk to her without requiring her to do anything but say hello. When the conversation ends the caller logs off, but this leaves the Skype window open on her computer, thus obscuring the list of phone numbers normally displayed and also preventing her photo slide show. I want the Skype…

  14. Skype should be able to save more than one login details at once.

    if i use 2 accounts in skype i have to retype the id and password of each account after i log out of the other account even after i click on the "remember account setting on this device" everytime i log out of both my accounts. Yet the login page only shows me the details of the last account i signed out from! not my other account! please fix this issue because typing in my account details each time i want to log in really ****** me off!

  15. Fix Skype login

    When I went to sign in to Skype (Android), it asks for a password. It does not say "Microsoft" password. Please specify that you want the Microsoft password. Also there is no way to be able to view the password as I enter it. Please fix this. Thanks.
