  1. VK and wrong thumbs with inappropriate content

    Some of the links to VK generates inappropriate thumbs (example — https://vk.com/videos-123508283?section=album_1&z=video-123508283_456239026%2Fclub). That's really harmful.

  3. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. password on messages

    I was thinking you should have an option for messages where they can have a choice to have a password or code for a chat if they don't want anyone to read their conversation

  15. Special Sign for Smart Notifications

    When the notifications are disabled for the group chat, a special iscon is displayed for it in the "Resent Chats" list. The same should be for the group chats with "Smart Notifications" enabled (e.g. "@" sign should be displayed in the "Resent Chats").

  17. Change Placement of Text Box

    Currently when in a video call and messaging vs talking the text message box covers the right side. It both covers the video and several options. Like mute, end call, share screen etc. its better having the text on the other side where it doesn't cover up options. Also the text box covers large parts of the video making it difficult to actually see the person you are talking to. The video should adjust in size so the text box doesn't interfer with the video.

  18. Give us option for alert sounds!

    PLEASE give us options on message alert sounds! I have a mild hearing impairment and this new alert sound is WAY too subtle and quiet. I have not seen movement on this issue despite multiple complaints by users. This isn't just a "I want to play the x-files theme song" issue! It's an ADA issue.

  19. Recent Chats: combine "Sort by Time" vs "Sort by Unread"

    The New Skype desktop offers "Sort by Time" vs "Sort by Unread", but I miss so many messages, opportunities to talk to clients, because I'll have 'Sort by Time' open & new chat does not appear there.

    Later, I look at 'Sort by Unread' & there are messages that don't show-up under the 'Sort by Time'.

    Is this a glitch, or you mean it that way? We can only see one or the other?

    Why can't I see ALL my text messages & requests all in one place?

    PS: I'm on a Win7 PC with the Win7 version of NEW…
