  3. Custom Categories

    The ability to sort/add chats or contacts to customized categories would be awesome. As it stands the only options are "Chats" and "Favorites".

  7. Chat windows positioning settings

    Older versions I was able to view messages that expanded to the margins of my monitor. That was because I was able to set chat to the bottom of the screen and thus it was showing me the chat with the maximum width possible. In newer versions this is not possible since the chat window is narrower.

  10. Non Binary Emojis

    I really appreciate the current non-binary emojis currently available on Skype, but I would love to see them expanded upon. As of now, I am left writing (enbyshrug) in messages despite the emoji not existing.

    I also feel that the current nonbinary emojis lean a little too much on the masculine side. I know that non binary people come in many different presentations, but a more androgynous emoji may allow for a wider number of people to use it.
    Face wise, the current ones are fine. However, the hair and body both lean hard masculine, with the body being the…

  15. Search and find old conversations

    I live in the US and have been using Skype since 2010. I moved to Canada in 2014 and now I would like to apply for Canadian citizenship but I need Skype records going back to 2012. Since I have a new PC I don't have any of these records. These messages are beautiful memories and would love to have them.

  16. Can you please turn the chats history in to an actual list box like it was in skype 7?

    It would be much easier to read chats in a conversation for screen reader users if you turned the chat history in to a simple listbox like it was in Skype 7, right now it lags out all the time when I'm trying to arrow thru the chat history in a group or contact

  19. Go to new messages quickly

    It might be more convenient for users if they can go to new messages quickly by tapping or clicking on the Chat icon, choose what message they want to go to.

    Currently, users need to roll down or up in the Chats to find the new messages.
