When trying to read through previous messages in a group chat (on desktop version), the entire body of text bounces, even when trying to scroll down. When multiple messages are still arriving, the bouncing text is very difficult to read and becomes quite frustrating (especially with lively conversations)!!!! Request to disable the shifting/bouncing text on the desktop application and replace it with say an icon animation (or nothing at all since the new message alerts fill up the side of my screen anyways).5 votes
in the new skype there is no visual notification anymore (the yellow one for instance). We need it back.29 votes
Bring back the yellow message notification so that we don't have to open and check Skype every time.
The yellow message notification was useful so that one doesn't have to keep opening Skype unless necessary.

Put the number of waiting messages in the Icon in Task Tray. This was a very useful feature in the prior versions.

In a new Skype there is an option to Notify about new messages only when user is mentioned in chat. It used to be an option to actually use certain words to trigger notifications. It's very welcome in large chat rooms with many participants.30 votes
Add the ability to customize different types of notifications and its settings for calling/receiving/IM, ringtones, volume, online/offline..

On Android, Skype notifications show only the most recent message.
Skype Lite notifications show a message history.
Please see this screenshot to illustrate: http://bit.ly/2OsjevO
Message history is the superior type of notification because you can read a conversation from the lock screen.
It would be great if Skype & Skype Preview had message history type notifications.24 votes
