  1. can skype be used "as" facetime? My sister is non-tech and has facetime on her mac. I use skype. Is there any way to make east meet west?

    Could there be an add on to skype that would emulate factime? I am in New Mexico with skype and windows 10 and my sister is in Massachusettes with a mac and factime. Is there any way these two products could handshake?

  2. label about the balance

    1 - it’s an unpleasant experience to see the “no money” label next to my name
    2 - if I need this option only when I call the phone, why I see it in another context of using?

    My suggestion is to move the balance to the calls tab, for example: https://www.figma.com/file/kKF6mBc5a0FRFIaa52Dxhh/Skype-balance

  5. Colour Options

    Please put a wider variety of colour choices for the text boxes in ‘Appearances’, there’s a very limited selection and they get a little boring after a while. Thank you!

  12. Stop showing ads

    STOP SHOWING THESE STUPID ADS. It forces me to get rid of Skype completely on all my devices and make my family members to make a switch with me.

  14. Android design fault, perhaps because of large font setting

    OK?
    When I try to make a phone call a big box blocks the area to put in a number, telling me to get caller ID

    I cannot get rid of this box and cannot make phone calls using ANdroid

    It is VERY ANNOYING

    Every time I try to call someone on Android a big box blocks the area where I put in the number

    This is insane

    On my android phone there is a stupid message where I want to put in the numebrs to call when I call a landline.
    I cannot get rid of this stupid message asking me to get Caller ID

    I do not want Caller ID
    but I cannot put in numbers to call because it blocks the screen.

    You need to get rid of this annoying advertising.

  16. New Features

    I wish the Skype has new features that I can organize my list of contacts, Example- I can create contacts Menus- such as Family, Friends and Office Mates- Under Family- I can include all name and contacts under my family, as well as my Friends and same as my office mates. so I will not confuse who are my friends, family and office if ever they have the same names..

    Menu-- Family, Friends and Office mate- Sub Menu-- Family- ex Shela, Art, AJ and Ashley, Sub Menu for firends. Roel, Archie, Bing and Office Mate- Mary, Rose

    Same lang this.…

  18. Sort by Status

    Recent Chats drop down shows only 2 options "Sort by Time" & "Sort by Unread". But these are not useful compare to "Sort by Status". Please add "Sort by Status" with alphabetical order. Available should come first and then Away etc...
