  1. 'myday' photo/video status.

    it would be better if you can add up 'myday' photo/video status but make sure to take down nudity, and hateful comments regarding gender identity, race, religious belief, etc.

  2. face blur

    Two issues with the blur feature.
    (1) You used to have blur background at the same time to smooth the user's face. But this was disappeared, now you only can blur the background. And the current background blur feature is cutting off the image edge as other companies. If you can get this fixed, it will help Skype stand out!
    (2) You do not have a face smooth or blur feature anymore. This feature can be found in the Zoom, why can Skype do it?

  8. Dark icon

    There is no dark icon option in appearance settings for iOS or Android. This would be great to compliment the dark mode. Thoughts?

  9. Custom Emoticons / Emojis

    In discord you can create your own emojis for different servers, in this case, skype
    should have the ability to create custom emoticons for groups.

    If you don't know how it should work, here are 2 ways I would love to see.

    Idea 1:

    Upload an image for a static, and gif for a moving one.

    Idea 2:

    You will be able to make your own emoticons using a emoji creator type thing.

    Like you can choose skin colour, eyes, mouths, noses, face additions and more!

    Call it "Emoticon Customisation".

  11. participant list display

    when the number of participants increases, then we could +2 like that apart from some of the participant being shown in default view of group call. But if we click that +2, it shows the entire participant list instead of those participants which are not visible in the defalt view.

    it would be good if we can show only that 2 particpants when we click +2.

    also there can be another icon which shows the entire participant list.

  12. User's name in the centre of the screen when using bigger words.

    My father is visually handicapped. Therefore his monitor shows bigger symbols and bigger words. We are using identical computers, just the size of the symbols and words is different. My father’s skype name is displayed in the left upper corner of my screen. My skype name is centralized in big letters in the centre of his screen = in front of my face on his screen. Would you please correct this and move it back to the left upper corner of the screen? Thank you.

  15. Picture Status

    It'd be a lot better, if we get an option to post our feelings and live activities and memories. Like Whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram has. But Skype Status option must be the unique one.

  17. Enable datestamp option to easily enable or disable. Allow for sorting messages by day, week, month. Allow to review across all contacts.

    A time stamp is useless if there is no date stamp also. I will need to stop using this poorly designed interface and go to others apps that do this by default.

  19. Picture viewing mode

    In the picture viewing mode, where the previews are shown below, an option to slide those preview thumbnails would be super convenient. Just like there's an arrow to move to the next image, similarly if there was an arrow to move to the next set of previews would be amazing.

    We're game artists and use Skype all the time, for all our office works, since we're working from home. In order to check our old and new artwork after some changes that feature would be of great help.

    Skype is the best! Hope to see that feature soon.

  20. Get rid of the grey bars at top and bottom of Skype video call - to enhance full screen usage and to be a better tool than zoom or teams

    I think you should remove the gray bars on the top and bottom of the newest versions of skype and instead, make the entire screen visible. This was a great feature of older versions!

    I suggest this because the complete visibility of the skype screen is important to me and others - especially now in all the video conferences we are doing in Covid and now transitioning to more and more telework days. I have tried to use older versions of skype (8.61.0.87) that had this feature, but but I seem to have connectivity issues. And, I think all your…
