  3. Please make an on-off option for that annoying PICS REVIEW of the last sent/received pics at the bottom of the screen! As LINE in Asia does!

    This pics review bar makes the actually watched pic much smaller and annoys visually. You need to be able to switch it on or off! We are in 2020! "LINE" in Asia is showing how it works! You have a little arrow above the pics review bar; if you click it, the pics are gone - if you click it again, they are on again! This forced pic review bar of Skype is really spoiling the pleasure of watching photos/pics. Please correct that!

  4. Tabbed Chat Window(s)

    The interface needs to have tabs. I use a lot of time communicating with multiple people at once. I'm sure others can relate. Interface head tabs for a separate window with tabs you could can I have multiple tabs with each contact. This makes it a lot easier to sort through. The current interface has sort of like this but it is vertical and not horizontal. Also another ability that would be great would be chathead function similar to how Facebook Messenger is. This would be awesome. I have suggested these for as long as I don't know over 10…

  8. Don't install with windows. Never install

    It is super bad user experience. Wasting peoples' time, they get annoyed, disliking the Skype situation even more. Plus giving you an enhanced bad publicity wrap leading up to the after work mockery at the bar.

  9. Camera button gone from Video chat screen after Update

    Just updated Skype on my Android Google Pixel 3xl phone. Prior to update, there was a take picture button on the video chat screen. It's now a Heart button. In order to take a screenshot now, you have to press 3 dots & go to 2nd menu, where take button has now been located. The extra step, delays taking the photo & the moment is then lost...

  11. delete quick actions on welcome screen

    It is not only superfluous nonsense to place the meet now or open dial pad ads to the desktop of long term skype users, it is unbearable to "have to" see horrible ugly microsoft icons... on my personal PC! There must be an option to delete, to get rid of these (microsoft) icons!! Please implement a delete setting by quick action!!!

  12. Fire the SKype Team (more managers), use Focus Groups, and fix problems with the app ...

    Fire most of your Skype Team and start over with a rewrite. Get some Focus Groups of people that really use it.

  14. Contact bar on left should be exandable in width

    I have few groups that have same names but last parts of the names are different and at present I cannot change the width and all appear the same. Please allow users to expand its width.

  17. Háttéreffektus nem működik!!!

    A Skype 8.65.0.76 miért kötelező telepíteni, amikor az előző verzió a 8.55,0.141 jobb volt, mert ennél nincsen háttér effektus, de a réginél volt. Hogyan tudom megoldani, hogy a háttéreffektus működjön? Kipróbáltam többet is, és mindegyiknél működött csak a 8.65.0.76-nál nem. Kérem a segítségüket, az is jó volna, ha nem volna kötelező letölteni az újat, hiszen úgy is letöltjük, de ha nem jó visszatérünk a régihez, de akkor is az újat vagyis a hibásat telepíti, Így éles marad a háttér, sajnos!!!
