  1. Speech to Text in Windows App

    We need Speech to Text features for Skype Desktop App.

  2. Add a thumbs up button

    Create an independent thumbs up button for easy "thumbs upping". I dislike having to find it in the emoji list. This is similar to Facebook message - sometimes I don't want to respond, I just want to say "ok, great...awesome" by giving a thumbs up.

  5. Please make the search function

    Please make the search function actually work for the entire conversation you're in. If I have to actually find the time the message was sent to find it with the search function, it is absolutely useless. I want to be able to find old messages with keywords or phrases.

  8. Getting rid of an already written message to call back when they can.

    Whenever someone doesn’t pick up and there’s a prewritten message to “call back when you can” is annoying like it always pops up and i dont know how to get rid of it.

  10. Text messages added along with attachment should appear before the attachment after the message has been sent.

    Text messages added along with attachment (images, files etc) should appear before the attachment after the message has been sent.
    Currently, if we add some text message while sending an attachment , the attachment is sent first and the message after that.

  11. Filters, games and more ideas

    I thought the maybe you guys could add in filters and features to calling so it would be the top thing. And I was also thinking maybe like people could make there own emoji or like design thing that looks like them and add in a thing where your either able to play games with the character against the person your texting or just have a plain option for games.

  13. disable "Give me a call when you're back"

    Whenever I call someone and they don’t answer, the message "Give me a call when you're back". I must have deleted this message hundreds of times, but have not a single time actually used it. Please make it possible to disable it!

  14. Push notifications only after certain time of inactivity - for new chat, not ongoing chat

    Notifications mostly get in the way of work when I have an active conversation in the background, so I disable them, but as a result, I have missed a few conversations when someone has messaged me outside of an active conversation but I haven't been notified - I have to look on the home screen for new messages indicators.

    Please enable a time limit on notifications so, for example, only receive one if you haven't been active in that chat for several hours.

  19. Messages in Skype should work all the time. They seem to often freeze, which for me isn't good, as we like to type as we talk.

    Messages in Skype should work all the time whilst we video call. The messages seem to often freeze, which for me isn't good, as we like to type as we talk (because we speak different languages).
