  5. add optionnal comment when tagging someone for status change

    Skype: Add optional comment field when tagging someone for status change... Then show comment with notification of status change.

    When we tag a lot of people, sometimes we forget what was the reasons for tagging them. This added comment would be nice to remind us.

  7. Notify when a user changes status to active

    Hi,

    There is a very important feature which is missing in Skype for personal use (andriod app).

    If it is possible to include a feature where if any of my contacts changes status from one state to another i should be notified instantly at what time it changed the status, then old and new status. It will help a lot.

    I will really appreciate if skype includes this feature.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Abhishek J

  8. Family request notification

    Receive Family notifications, about kids asking for more time on devices or request for purchase; Microsoft already has a verifiable parental consent mechanism through the Microsoft Account family accounts feature. https://account.microsoft.com/family/

    would be cool to have those notificiations via skype!

  9. older mac

    You should fix up a version similar to skype v 2 or 5 or 6 that runs on all macs back to 10.6.8 or at least back to 10.9.5 that supports basic IM with audio notifications. To that, adding voice calls and video calls would be nice, but your current versions don't even handle IM notifications properly. For example skype 8.49 is the last version that runs on os x 10.9 and it doesn't work right. It only beeps on a new IM session and not on subsequent messages. This should be user-configurable and work right. As it is, I…

  12. Chat notifications should appear on all my logged in devices

    I am often signed into Skype on multiple devices simultaneously (desktop, laptop, and mobile phone) but I don't reliably get new chat notifications on each device. I miss many messages because of this. Please fix.

  13. make some chats notifications still active in do not disturb state

    We use skype group chats at work and sometimes it's necessary to set state to do not disturb (for working without distracting). But at the same time some chats need constant attention, and also some private chats. Can we set some chats still active while do not disturb state is chosen?

  15. Orange background still gets displayed on desktop app in the task bar, even if I have seen the message on my mobile device.

    If I view Notification on my phone, I don't want to see the orange background on desktop app in the task bar on my Windows Machine. As I have already seen it on my phone.
    What is the point of still displaying the orange background?

  19. Ability to only receive notification from selected people or group

    It would be nice if we have the ability to choose people/group whom we want us to get notified. Allow selected people only and not the entire contacts.
