  8. Not able to set up account with custom Skype ID

    I'm really bummed out that I can't create an account for my internet biz/inc. The system just autogenerates a long live skype ID profile which isn't option for my business. I'm forced to find a different chat option. Skype should go back to pre migration days and allows custom Skype IDs.

  9. adding more gender options

    I think it would be good to add more gender options for profiles to be more inclusive since there are already emojis for other genders than male and female so adding an option in profiles would be good

  12. Invisible Statue as default status on start of the skype application

    Invisible as default status on the start of the application.

    Currently, it shows Active Status by default as and when the user starts Skype. but, I would recommend to keep it Invisible by default and let the user set the status of his/her preference.

    Being a working professional I can understand the urge of having "Me Time" to get ready yourself for work you need some time to prioritize your work and set the schedule while doing so unnecessary pings or calls at the start of skype from colleagues spoil the entire planning of yours.

  14. Ability to change status from active to in meeting when user is in call.

    When a person gets a call, his "active" status should be changed to some "In meeting" automatically so that other user trying to connect him or message should know that he is busy with another call or meeting.

  18. Don’t show birthday option. Kills me interviewing because I’m too old

    Give me an option to not show my birth. It’s a detriment on some interviews. I’m old some don’t want to hire they legally can’t discriminate but if it in view it can hurt. I did try to clear it several times and save but it still shows
