  1. Why can't I access Japan in caller ID?

    Why can't I set Japan in caller ID? I have a business in Japan and in the US, and it's incredibly annoying for my Japanese clients not to have my Japan number come up when I call them.

  3. Add 'Mark As Read' back to Skype Notifications on Android

    Previously on Android, if you got a notification there would be 2 options:


    • Reply


    • Mark As Read


    Reply is still on Android notifications, and works perfectly fine.

    However, 'Mark As Read' was replaced by 'Thumbs Up' some time ago. I think it should be reverted to 'Mark As Read'.

    The 'Thumbs Up' button works just like the 'Mark As Read' button does - if you press it (as long as you are not on invisible mode/have read receipts enabled) the message sender, or other people in a group chat, can see that you have read the message. However, it also…

  4. IM notification

    Please bring back the bright colored (red or yellow) chat notification that pops up in the task bar at the bottom of the screen. I don't have the audio notification on because it dings all the time and the little numeral doesn't catch my eye.

  8. Option to erase missed Called message to calls we make.

    You should add a new feature to erase the missing call messages we made to someone. It's embarrassing to call somebody by mistake and not having the option to erase that message so the other person wouldn't know we called.

  9. Set unique notifacation sounds per contact.

    I want to control the sounds the app makes when there is a notification.
    1. In some cases I want to set a contact as important and allow all notification in other cases don't want a notification at all. This should be set at the contact level and correlate to my status. The use-case is where I want an important person to override the DND/Away status.


    1. I want to set a unique notification sound for a specific person. SO I know to ignore or look at the message right way.

  11. Pop up notifications

    The old Skype used to send a pop up notification for messages received when the programme was minimised. That feature seems to have fallen away, so you have to keep checking back to see whether you have new messages. I use Skype for internal office communication, so this is extremely frustrating. Please bring this function back!! Thanks :)

  13. Reply in Notification

    Please bring back the thing in old Skype where you could reply to a message in the notification when it showed up on the screen (in the Mac version). I really miss it and it would make life a bit easier.

  18. Group Chat Notifications on Skype

    Based on the current feature of the skype generally in the group chat someone from the group can tag any of the group member to mention the point. Many times group chats having lots of unnecessary messages. In that case if skype implements the feature like if in case someone tag the person while speaking automatically notification needs to send that tagged person in his inbox. It will help to summarie the conversation to everybody in group chat
