  9. add optionnal comment when tagging someone for status change

    Skype: Add optional comment field when tagging someone for status change... Then show comment with notification of status change.

    When we tag a lot of people, sometimes we forget what was the reasons for tagging them. This added comment would be nice to remind us.

  11. Notify when a user changes status to active

    Hi,

    There is a very important feature which is missing in Skype for personal use (andriod app).

    If it is possible to include a feature where if any of my contacts changes status from one state to another i should be notified instantly at what time it changed the status, then old and new status. It will help a lot.

    I will really appreciate if skype includes this feature.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Abhishek J

  12. Turn Off Pop Up Notifications

    This feature is terrible. There are so many times when it is inappropriate for a message to pop up. Many people stand behind me while we work through things. There has got to be a way to keep this feature private. Please, please fix this. A blinking yellow icon on the task bar is plenty.

  14. Family request notification

    Receive Family notifications, about kids asking for more time on devices or request for purchase; Microsoft already has a verifiable parental consent mechanism through the Microsoft Account family accounts feature. https://account.microsoft.com/family/

    would be cool to have those notificiations via skype!

  15. Make *all* Skype Icons orange when there are unread messages.

    By all I mean in taskbar, but also on desktop, and in the Start menu...
    - The way skype is now, it's really easy to miss a notification.
    - If it also turned all icons orange, one would notice much easier.

  16. show notifications on second display when first has full-screen application

    Windows is smart, and when I have an application in full-screen mode, it does not show pointless notifications over it.
    - But 'systems updates' are not the same notifications as receiving messages.
    - Instead: Show the notification on a second display if user has one - that does not interfere with the full-screen application.
    - OR In fact, just let me configure how Skype shown notifications, instead of using the terrible Win10 notifications 'for unimportant things' - I wuold just put them always on my second display.

  19. Open recent/unread chats by clicking on the 'Chats' icon

    In Skype version 8.53.0.85, the 'Chats' icon shows notifications for unread messages, but clicking on the icon doesn't do anything. Rather than expecting users to know to scroll to the bottom of their favorites and look at the feed of mixed recent calls and recent chats, maybe clicking the unread messages icon could take us to unread messages?

    Also: clicking the missed call notification should probably take us to a list of missed calls.

  20. Incoming message

    Hello! In previous Skype versions there was available a notification on Skype icon like a white dot , showing that you have new unread message. Now in current new version, if I am sitting in front of my PC, I see a new message coming-in as pop-up message for a second. I open Skype and read it. But if I am away from PC and a new message came in during my absence, I do not know it . I am not aware about new message came in because Skype icon on deskbar does not reflect new message unread no…
