  1. If you have Skype on more than 1 device you should be able to turn off the one your not using

    Turn off on the devices you are not using it because I loan my phone or tablet out and I will go off when another one does

  8. My status changes itself!

    I put the status "invisible." But during a day it spontaneously and stubbornly changes to "online" itself , despite the fact that I do not exit Skype or exit - it does not matter .. almost every time I open a page on a windows 10 laptop or android phone, I have to change it to Invisibility from online though I didn't change it myself before. How is this possible? I have a feeling of the presence of another person who, without me knowing, who changes my settings. I'm right? How to avoid this problem or mistake? how to strengthen…

  10. Acabo de descubrir que después de bloquear un con

    Acabo de descubrir que después de bloquear un contacto los archivos que compartiste con esta persona siguen estando disponibles, creo que por seguridad de los usuarios, una vez que bloquees un contacto, las fotos, los archivos y cualquier otro elemento compartido debería bloquearse también. Personalmente me genera mucha desconfianza haber descubierto ese detalle

  13. Admin Rights

    It should have Admin or Host Control for
    1) recording, screenshots
    2) starting the call and
    3) "delete for all" feature

    For Screen view, multiple people can come on single screen at a time.

    Also at a time 2 or 3 can be made Host and Co Host to control the meetings or calls.

  15. People need to be able to Block the entire fraud Area code 833

    Block entire area codes because there is a fraud area code 833 these scammers are calling everyday from a different number. I need to block an entire area code not each puppet phone number one by one.

  18. Stop incoming friend requests

    Be given the opportunity to disallow incoming friend requests. This would be handy for people like myself who have quite a sought after username and, as such, get a lot of spam adds and calls from bots everyday. I don't want to have to scroll through 300 friend requests/missed calls from bots to find what my friend messaged me yesterday. Spoke to your Twitter team and they advised I post this idea here.

  20. Why do you make sure we update?

    Why do you make sure we update? Why not just bring back support for older versions of Skype? Is it so difficult for you? Do you like it when people leave the project? You would return support for older versions of Skype, there would be no such noise. And you would think about the elderly people, how they were not comfortable in "Skype 8"!!! You would think of older people first than killing a normal Skype!!! Now, when I download classic Skype, I always see a survey in it: either update, or go fuck yourself. So that... I advise you…
