    Gifs, animating in the loop are very annoying.

  3. To me the most annoying part of Skype chat is that when I look at the past chats I can't easily see which day they are from.

    you need to improve the layout for text chat.
    Right now is very hard to know the date of the message.
    I can see hour and minute, but not the date.
    Sometimes the date appears, and sometime not.
    I suggest that you fire the person who designed it and hire someone with some sense.

  5. VK and wrong thumbs with inappropriate content

    Some of the links to VK generates inappropriate thumbs (example — https://vk.com/videos-123508283?section=album1&z=video-123508283456239026%2Fclub). That's really harmful.

  9. Seeing (as well as exporting) the history in sequence of occurrence across all contacts.

    Being a primary way of communicating to clients, the history in Skype, including phone call duration, is important for being able to bill my clients.

    That is about the absolute single aspect that will make it worth while for me and I assume most consultants in the industry, to continue with Skype.

    It is terribly important for success in my kind of business.

    Currently, the lack of ability is a super frustrating and disabling factor.

  10. A simple switch to enable or disable SMS.

    A simple switch to enable or disable SMS would be useful for those that prefer not to use SMS with Skype.

  12. Add Option for selecting from contacts for sending Poll in specific group.

  20. Add Kaizala like channels to Skype

    Add channels on Skype where you can announce things to a large audience like the ones in Kaizala. One of the official Skype channels should be an insider channel so insiders who subscribe to it can get a summarization of the release notes on the Skype app so they wouldn't have to go to the Skype website to see what's new. Allow insiders to unsubscribe from channels as easy as leaving a group ( with the touch of a button). Also, there should be a comment feature along with the reply feature so it'll be easier to get feedback from…
