  1. There should be an option to choose your ringtone

    Hello Skype Team if you are reading this, so there should be an option to choose a ringtone you can like, you can choose Skype premade sounds, or you can upload a sound, the default one should be the 2019 Skype Ringtone. You can find a ringtone changing option in settings in skype, the very bottom is where you can find the option, and I think you can make the ringtone changer support .ogg, .mp3, .mus, and a new file option, .skypesound.

  2. Please let us turn off the blinking notification.

    I would like to turn the blinking off when I get a new message. I am already alerted by a sound. If I would like to turn sound off and blinking back on then that should be an option too. Please allow us to turn the blinking off!

  3. Change of brightness for notification

    Can the notification setting be controlled by a slider to increase and decrease brightness?
    Can it be extended to messaging window also?
    This feature is available in pidgin.

  4. Have color change on newly received messages and float to top of the chats

    Want to ensure new messages are grouped at the top in time order so easy to find and then also have a colored text to highlight that they need attention.

  5. Go on "Do not disturb" when OS is in Do not Disturb

    In macOS and presumably Windows, there is the option to go Do Not Disturb. It would be nice to have the option to change your Skype status to "Do Not Disturb" as well to notify team members that you're in Deep Work mode.

    Then have the option to go back to Available when Do Not Disturb is disabled in the OS.

  6. Allow changing the ringtone like it used to be!

    I have been Paying for a Phone Number & Calling on skype so the past several years, I am looking for a new service for Only because of the Ringtone issue!
    I HATE the ringtone as it distorts my headset speaker & is VERY annoying and crazy loud!

    I set the volume to 3 EVERY day & EVERY day it is back to 10

    Why did you guys break this great program for the windows 10 release?

  7. Idea for improved Skype experience: make Notifications reliable again.

    Idea for improved Skype experience: make Notifications reliable again.

    Because again, just now!

    An hour ago several messages were coming in, without them showing up in Skype/desktop/Mac. Nothing displayed, no alerts, nothing. I just decided to actively check on my old Android mobile, just to make sure, and suddenly there were the messages! From an hour ago! But still not on the desktop. Too late now to reply (because of time zone differences).

    For the record, TWO mobiles (the Android & an iPhone) had made no alert sounds, and indicated no waiting messages. Until I actively started digging for potentially…

  11. "Reply" and "Mark as read" in notification banner

    In old version of Skype from Microsoft Store, it was possible to reply to a message using the "Reply" button in notification toast itself. Since recent update to 8.61.0.87 (app version 15.61.87.0), it isn't possible anymore. It would be really useful to have those features back.

  12. find any icon in front of the person is busy with call

    we didn't get that another person is on a voice call or busy with chat with the third-man person, so try to find any icon in front of the person that he is busy with on-call at least we get an idea of that person is why not answering to ours call.

  13. Notifications in action center

    Old Skype from Microsoft Store had notification system that was seamlessly stashing all unread notifications in Action Center. Since update to 8.61.0.87 (app version 15.61.87.0), this isn't working anymore. It would be useful to have it working again.

  16. Messages from other chats appearing while in call

    I have a lot of chats on Skype, and I find myself going crazy, checking my chats to see if someone has responded during the call. Unfortunately, when I am in a call, my other chat messages do not appear, and I have to stop talking, click the button, and scroll down to see if anyone responded.
    It would be very appreciated if Skype could install notifications to appear while in a call. Thanks!

  20. Cross call notification

    If a person is busy on call and another person is try to call him/her there should be some mechanism to send notification that the person is already busy in another call.And this should be vice versa
