  1. It would be good to have possibility to hide chat until new message with quote or @mentions

    It would be good to have possibility to hide chat (mostly it relates to group chats with friends) not until any new message come, but until new message with quote or @mentions

  2. ADD SKYPE HOME . SO WE CAN SEE EVERYONE STATUS IN SKYPE HOME AS OLD VERSION OF SKYPE SO PLZ ADD IN THIS NEW VERSION

    Hello

    I am using Skype Version 8.30 & I want to inform you that One Feature is missing, which I get after Skype Classic Version 7.

    if we Open a Chat and we want to close (Minimize) that Chat then we can't do that, for that we need Home button which was given in Skype Classic, which was a much better option for users to close or minimize the Chat.

    please Add this Feature ASAP.

    Waiting for your Valuable reply,

  3. No messaging notifications on the new Skype

    The old version of Skype would notify you of a new message. I have been FORCED onto the latest version, but have no notice if someone messages me. Why on earth would you remove this?

    With the newer version of Skype I can no longer minimize the application on Windows system tray when I close the application window. Please bring it back. It was an useful feature.

  8. integrated calling

    Please bring back the option to disable integrated calling. I do NOT want Skype calls to interrupt me during my work day by ringing on my phone and clogging up my recent calls list on my phone. I feel like this is an invasion of my privacy because I did not authorize Skype to do this. Please fix this or I will be forced to delete the app permanently.

  11. limit notifications to incoming messages.

    Please give option to disable spam notifications, such as the notification that "you have no notifications" or "please enter your phone number".

    If you want my number, rules are the same, dinner or drinks first!

  17. Skype in SysTray

    It would be great if Skype had the option to go to the SysTray (notification area) when dismissed, rather than exiting entirely and missing skype calls.

  18. you are blocked notification

    When a contact has blocked you I would like to see a clear indication next to their user name indicating you have been blocked by this person. Like a red circle with a slash through it right next to there user name.

  19. Remove the "Ongoing call" notification after a call is finished.

    After finishing a skype desktop to skype desktop call I get a notification on skype lite for android that says "Ongoing call".

    I suggest that this notification is removed after the call is finished.

    Yes, this is a bug report in the form of a Skype idea.

  20. Missed call notifications

    You leave a message saying "Missed call from XXXXXXX" if someone tries to call you and you do not answer. If YOU try someone and they do not answer the message reads "Missed call".

    Why not say "Missed call from you" or "Missed call to XXXXX"?
