  6. Schedule Calls

    You should be able to schedule many calls at a time.
    I have a meeting with the same person 2 times a week which i always forget... I should be able to schedule that forever instead of having to do it one by one

  7. Bring back NUDGE

    Bring back NUDGE

    Skype used to have NUDGE. Do you remember it.
    I press Nudge and a sound sounds on their and the window shakes to let you know someone is trying to converse with you.

    If you don't want to call/video but chat and you need to attract someone's attention .. it is not EASY to know that someone is trying to reach you .. NUDGE was very useful for this.
    No idea why it was removed.
    People often have sounds turned off .. so the shaking was a good way to draw their attention if that allowed Nudges.

  12. task bar inbox icon to alert missed call/chat attempts

    provide a taskbar inbox icon to serve as an alert to missed calls/chats. not just a temp popup. Which, by the way, I am not sure it currently exists, I believe I have seen it once.

  13. new chats

    When you click on the Chats icon where it shows you the quantity of new messages, please have these chats move to the top, even above favourites, so you do not have to scroll down to them.

  15. Distinguish between "Notification sounds" and someone starting a new chat...

    I would like to be notified via a sound when someone starts a chat session. But I don't want to get beeped each time a person on the other end sends a chat message during the extended session. So, please allow to set an option:

    New chat request notification [ on / off]

  16. Which of my Skype numbers is receiving a call?

    Right now, when I receive a call to my Skyoe account, I don't know how I'm receiving that call. Is it a Skype to Skype call to my Skype ID? Is it a landline call to one of my Skype numbers? If it's the latter, which of my multiple Skype numbers is the one being called?

    It would be great if I could see that information so I know what the call may be about. Thanks!

  19. Customize the notifications banner

    The idea is you could pick different colors or themes for different contacts as the banner comes thru the notifications

  20. Skype Incoming call - missing notification

    There is a bug, on Android skype-somehow out of the blue, skype does not give notifications anymore for incoming calls.
    As additional side effects in the chatts window, for new missed call a new log line is displayed with some random digits
    "call log Ew2340-230ERST-yio90-Ett" for every call.
    Uninstall, then reinstall, and incoming calls notifications get back ..at least for a while
    After getting back notifications, call log looks normal again, but missed call logged in previous "buggy" state, are not displayed on mobile, only on pc
