  1. Skype Numbers for Canada

    Canadians have waited long enough for Skype to offer them Canadian Skype Numbers. During the Covid-19 pandemic, this product would be more useful than ever.

  2. I need the tel no. Has a message receive function

    I need the tel no. Has a message receive function because nowadays banks, etc companies need to send ppl the verify codes for identity checking.

    If it can do this, I will consider to have a number in the future.
    Please let me know.

  3. Make Skype work with macOS Catalina

    Make Skype work with macOS Catalina. Despite calling your support people, they have not resolved the issue for almost 5 months. And the $9.9 have paid you guys, which still reflects unused in my account, buys me 10 meals in your CEO's country, which also happens to be my country. Sincerely hope MS will resolve this, or I should just move off Skype to Zoom and other products, and let my $9.9 be my contribution towards your Skype bankruptcy fund. Remember Enron, to big to fail?? MS is no exception.

  4. Phone Number Checker (Landline, Mobile, VOIP) in / out of active subscription

    Please consider creating a function/facility/extension that when given a phone number, checks to see if the number is a Landline, Mobile, VOIP or other,.
    Also, that checks to see if the number is covered under an active subscription for the current Skype account.

    Thank you,

    L-Parliament

  6. WEB Page Button to Retry an online payment

    Guys. I did not make a payment for my Italian Subscription yesterday but I got online and did it with your online help.
    What would be really do was if you had a button on the WEB page that said "Try Payment Again NOW". That way I could do it easily.
    OK. Thanks.

  7. Feature reactivation for smartvs

    I think skype made a huge mistake when it disabled apps for smartvs. In this critical period, in particular, I am unable to speak easily to relatives who live far away. If skype returned this service, it would serve as a great link for many families.

  8. Very little subscription options for international call

    very little subscription options for international call.. and once subscription ran over it started charging with higher rate and extra for every connection .. so end up paying almost 2 cents for every call after 800 subscription ran over..

    It will be better if you can have more flexibility for creating subscription based on individual usage.. of allow adhoc top up in middle of month

  10. Add Ukraine mobile calls to Office 365 subscription

    It's very misleading to say that Office 365 subscription includes "60 mins of world calls" and then have a limited set of countries as "the World".

  12. Skype Number/Calling subscription renewal - India

    I have been subscribed to these 2 services for about 3-4 years now and until last Jan 2020 everything was running smooth. My card was expired in the payment options so I had to add new one, and I did and now I cannot renew my skype number subscription it says I have to do it only Skype Credit not through card. Skype Credit charges more plus it will only allow to charge 1770/- in single charge, where as my subscription is more than 2882/- , this means I have to do multiple credit recharges and multiple taxes. But to…

  14. Skype phone numbers should be clearly communicated as "Non-refundable", "Non-verifiable", and "Non-2FA compatible"

    It is a really terrible business practice to not clearly communicate in the checkout process that some key details someone might expect from a regular phone number are not available through a skype number. They cannot be verified and thus, cannot be used for 2-factor authentication. However, I believe any consumer would assume this is possible when they see that they can send and receive sms, as consumers, including me, don't know that there are numbers that can send and receive sms, but somehow not work for 2FA. You should also clearly state in the checkout process that skype numbers…

  15. Skype meeting entertainment

    I run a nationwide company that provides entertainment for events: caricature artists, magicians, etc'. In the wake of the COVID crisis some of our clients have held Skype meetings and asked us to provide remote entertainment via Skype. I'm wondering who I might speak to at Skype about offering this kind of service THROUGH Skype. There is high demand for this right now, if we can put our options in front of clients hosting Zoom events, but there won't be high demand for it once the crisis passes, so time is of the essence. Let me know, please.

  16. extra talk time

    Giving more minutes during the Covid-19 situation,
    I would like to suggest to Microsoft to give more minutes when user subscribed since people are not able to meet in person. They can talk via skype with their relatives if Microsoft could help to people.

  18. Local Greek Number [landline/mobile]

    It would be great if Skype offered local Greek phone numbers (which it currently doesn't). If it was possible to have both landline numbers and mobile phone numbers, that would indeed be amazing. Cheers!

  19. Skype number SMS

    Skype number should be able to send MMS messages with photos and also the number should be able to be used for verification codes! It cannot do either of these now and that's a major disadvantage.

  20. SMS CAPABILITY FOR NON-US SKYPE NUMBERS
