  1. Sound alert before auto-answering

    In auto-answering mode it would be great to alert me about incoming call before answering or realize 2 seconds delay before answering call. I feel myself scared when suddenly somebody starts talking to me from speakers. In general this feature is very useful for me but needs to be adjusted.

  2. contact becomes "active" from "away status"

    many contacts do sign out, audio notification when they change status from "away" to "active" would be extremely helpful!!!

  4. Ability to clear notifications

    Notifications can hold privacy sensitive data. There seems currently no way to clear those notifications. It's a must-have.

  8. Ability to only receive notification from selected people or group

    It would be nice if we have the ability to choose people/group whom we want us to get notified. Allow selected people only and not the entire contacts.

  9. Persistent Notifiations.

    Keep notification on screen until clicked! This i basics of IM. Why to have IM if you can see notifications because you were loking somewhere else for 10 seconds (skype notification disappears after few seconds)? ICQ had it in 1997 or 1996. An previous version of SKYPE had it. Other applications have it. Whats wrong with skype team? I am here because I missed another message from coworker

  18. Highlight

    On new message Skype icon not blinking, just updates number of messages on icon that is not visible at all and we need to specially look for skype and see if it has some number over that, so if we are working on other file the number increment dont helps at all.

  20. Please stop the bug

    This error window keeps popping up everytime I wake up or reboot my machine. "Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.SkypeApp14.35.76.0x64_kzf8qxf38zg5c\S...\SkypeBridge.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

    How to stop it ?
