  4. 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

  5. Change other people's profile picture on Skype (only you can see)

    Some people on skype's profiles are hard to tell apart or something so it would be nice to be able to change other's profiles but only you can see it. Changing them can also help you remember who is who.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  9. Add current time and timezone

    I'd like to show local time of user in my contact list. I am attaching screenshot - https://prnt.sc/qzncde .
    You can easy understand what I'd like to say. It's so simple and you can add it in skype. It's small feature but It's help a lot. I have to check client's time on google each time.

    One more if you can do. On click client's time, it show differences of both time and if we want to calculate then give there calendar with time to easy calculate time difference.

  12. Birthday Notifications

    Hello, in the past you had birthday notifications in the contact list and the system messaged you when a friend has a birthday. You stopped this some time ago and I also reported the issue over a year ago and it still didn’t get fixed. I’m hoping you can fix this feature so it’s available again, thanks.

  16. Выбор страны СССР в настройках профиля.

    И не надо голословно заявлять что СССР распался или развалился. Конституция СССР не содержала функций развала страны. И сейчас на данный момент все жители России являются гражданами СССР это факт и все международные договоры с СССР действуют. И органы управления СССР восстановлены с 2010 года под руководством ВрИО Президента СССР С.В. Тараскиным. Так требую внести в список стран СССР. Это наша страна, наша Родина, Наше государство. СССР возрождён из пепла и спрос будет с каждого.

  17. 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

  18. Give an ability to search what the meaning of locations are such as CA is that Canada or Cakiforinia. It needs to be clear! TOO MANY SCAMS!

    The locationnof profiles needs to be clear.
    Is CA Canada or is it CALIFORNIA or something else?
    TOO MANY SCAMMERS COMMITTING SCAMS SAYING THEY ARE IN CANADA BUT MOST LIKELY THEY ARE IN CALIFORNIA!!!
    MAKE IT CLEAR THAT THE LOCATION OF CALLER IS KNOWN SO WE DO NOT GET SCAMMED!!! Especially catfishers!!! I need to know what CA stands for!!!
