  5. Share profile

    Since you cannot have a Skype name anymore, there should be a link to share your profile with other people so they can find you directly through that specific link.

  12. Keep Status of Skype intact

    Please update Skype to keep my status as "Away", like i used to be able to do in older versions of skype (v 7.4).

    how to keep myself "Away" permanently if i wish, the way the old skype worked, where you could set it once and it remained that way until you changed it to another status regardless if you signed out or not.

  15. Fondo Pantalla

    En estos tiempo de Covid-19 Skype será el reemplazo de la reuniones principales.

    Sugiero incluir fondos de pantallas de fondos temáticos para hacer más amigables esas reuniones. Por ejemplo simular que estoy en una cafetería, en un ambiente laboral, etc.

    Ya que pueden difumar el fondo de pantalla quiere decir que lo pueden independizar de la imagen principal, el usuario, con lo cual puden cambiarlo por na temática en especial

    Saludos

  16. Provide actual help to Skype members that are being abused

    If a problem is reported an involves nudity of one member while the other member starts screen saving your images and is extorting, ruining your life. Maybe remove the abuser, content and provide a person not a robot for victim

  17. An invitation link through which a Skype user can directly connect to us on our Skype messenger should be valid for permanent basis

    An invitation link through which a Skype user can directly connect to us on our Skype messenger should be valid for permanent basis so that our visitor on the website can directly connect with us on skype with just a single click.

    I come to know from your customer support agent that link to share our profile which we get from share and connect option is valid for 24 hours only.

    To copy the name and find in skype is look hard compare to the one-click option. Isn't?

  18. Thumbnail Adjustability

    Allow users to adjust the thumbnail of their profile picture like every other social media does. This should have been a feature that was available since day one. Having a profile picture showing all the wrong portions in the thumbnail appears sloppy and completely unprofessional - This goes double for people using Skype For Business.

  19. Always Online Status

    I think it would be nice to have the status option "always online (available)" like the older versions of Skype.
    Because right now, if we are keyboard or mouse (trackpad) inactive for few minutes (example: watching youtube video) the status automatically becomes "away" even if we are still in front of the computer and that can be confusing for some of our contacts.
