  2. Get rid of sequential notifications on group chats

    Hi. It is really annoying to get notified on each message when it comes into a group chat sequentially. What I meant is that: Only send notification once per 5 minutes or 10 minutes even there are more than one message in a group. It is unbearable to get notified on each sequential message comes from a specific group. Please add a feature to make it similar with WhatsApp and the other platforms' process to notify the user. I get it really serious because I work in a Technical Support position and at night, while my colleagues take care of…

  3. Sound Changing

    It would be nice if you guys re-introduced sound changing for the Skype ringtone because I miss the old ringtone and would like to change it back.

  5. Notification Time (ex. Office hours only)

    Setup Notification times for people who use Skype primarily for work and can set up the office hours so that notifications come in only on those times. This will help lessen the need to check your messages outside your working hours

  6. Bank of America and SMS

    I am trying to add my Skype number to Bank of America settings. But I cannot receive an SMS verification for some reason. I have received SMS from others.
    BAC website stated the following:
    "Supported Carriers include: Alltel, AT&T, Cellular One, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile, U.S. Cellular®, Verizon Wireless. Message and data rates may apply"

    Is there something in that statement that explains why SMS is not working from the bank? I live overseas, so SMS receival is a priority.

    I did receive SMS from a flower delivery order I made to Texas, so I know the SMS feature works for…

  8. Disable sounds such as dialing, connecting and ringing.

    It is beyond me why it isn't possible to disable that horrible "music" skype plays when dialing a number. there should be a way to disable those annoying noises - when you have to call dozens of people per day, this gets really annoying, and actually made me look into alternatives for VoIP.

  11. scheduled call

    Scheduled Call Transparency
    People tell me "I didn't receive an invitation" although they did. They expect an email to their email inbox.
    When I make them open Skype and they accept I don't see on my end that they accepted.

  12. Stop the guest account missed call notifications on Android. Its just spam and I can't answer in time because it hangs up too quick.

  13. Notification

    Hello,
    It would be great if Skype had this function: Only when someone will message me in person or in group chat if someone will mention me, only in these two scenarios, to have a function that allows me to activate a sound notification.

    What I mean.

    Due to Coronavirus I and my work staff are using Skype while working for communication. While I'm working I use several programs, and I close the Skype window, and when in the group chat my co-workers are chatting about different topics, I receive notification in red, then I have to open it and…

  19. Receive call notifications when not logged in

    When my daughter Skypes me from her composer, I don't get a notification until/unless I log into Skype although all of my notification options are enabled both on my device and my Skype account. I would like to receive Skype to Skype calls even when I'm not logged in.
