  1. Pinning the chats

    It would be really great if Skype had a feature of pinning the conversations on the top, can you please take this into consideration?

  6. I would like to have a few different options for message notification sound

    Would like options for different notification sounds. Current notification sound so quiet that I can barely hear it with my volume all the way up. Would like to see sound options so I could use louder tone

  9. Skype Chat Commands

    In the early versions of Skype, such teams worked in chats, which are presented on this site

    http://www.skaip.su/komandy-v-chate-skayp

    It was possible to assign separate roles to different chat participants, delete messages of the interlocutor, and so on. These features are currently not available. Can they be returned back?

  19. Please make it so that you can use a Skype number to receive texts from apps

    I am a US citizen currently living in Colombia on assignment for the next two years. I have an iPad Pro and no phone.

    This setup works fine most of the time, (approximately 99.9% of the time or more,) but sometimes I get a new app that requires a text authentication message to be sent to me for verification purposes. Since I have no phone, this is a serious deficiency. Also, sometimes I need to receive a text for other 2-factor-identification purposes, (banking, Google, and such,) and Skype is not useful for this either.

    Please amend this deficiency that is…
