  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. User can be `mute a chat or a group` for temporary

    User can be mute a chat or a group for temporary (1 day) and permanently based on selection. If somebody tagged in muted chat then it will show in notification.

  9. 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.

  13. Positioning for call notification window

    The ability to select the position on the screen where call notifications show (bottom-right, bottom-left, etc.), or any solution that doesn't place a a non-opaque square in the middle of the screen when someone is calling.

    A call notification showing in the centre of the screen can interfere with what people are doing at the moment (watching a live stream, playing games, etc.)

  14. bring back audio notification when "contact comes online" would be extremely helpful

    audio sound notification along with notification tray (visual) would be extremely helpful when not actually looking at the screen in Windows 10. Waiting for this for a while now.

  16. Please add better support for sound control in Skype.

    Please add the ability to control which sound happens by person and group. Right now sound is broken in windows and I don't get ANY notifications. It would be good to select .wave/.mp3 files by person or group. I can do this with my phone and it's critical to knowing how fast I should respond to each sound. Banks sound like one thing, friends sound like another. For Skype, I want my brother to have one sound and my friends to have another. It should also be adjustable by send/receive message as well as new notifications. If this is currently…

  18. Please add an option to add your own sounds

    Please add an option to add your own sounds, I'm pretty sure a lot of people want this to be added to Skype. I am not a fan of the notification sound that you hear when someone sends you a message, etc. Thank you for reading this and please vote this if you want this to come true on Skype again! :)

  19. disable skype call quality feedback

    This particular notification of call feedback is a bit annoying, and should be kept as a feedback button with the log of the call posted in the chat box. Like those of emoji reaction button when we hover over chats with our mouse pointer.
