  3. Need an option to only save messages for a certain amount of days/months/years history. Skype is getting bogged down.

    Give an option in Settings to only keep a certain amount of days/months/years history as preferred by the user. Older version of Skype had this option.
    My internet is slow already and sometimes it takes 4-5 minutes to load a GIF or other things.

  5. Allow users to save settings.

    It would be nice if I could save settings. I have to change all the settings every time I use Skype.

    Unfortunately, grandfolks are old, stuck on Skype, and bad with tech. Otherwise I would move them over to Discord.

  8. Save files inside folder which name match either chat name or group name

    It would be great to save files inside folder which name match with chat name or group name, currently either we have to choose where to save or it saves inside Skype folder, the feature I requested allow me to save files into a folder structure, this way files from different-2 clients or chats don't mix up, it can be a optional feature but this would be very useful.

  9. Add the option to modify keyboard shortcuts

    I use skype allot and on different devices, so with so many different keyboard layouts sometimes it is hard to reach for example: if i want to hang up the call by using shortcuts, on wider keyboards it is harder to press ctrl + shift + H. So by adding the option to change which keys i wanna use for a specific action, then it makes it easier and more convenient to use them.

  13. The ability to use Skype for emergency calls (what in the uk would be 999 calls).

    I am type one diabetic, I have a advice in my arm that links to my phone that sends me updates on blood sugar levels. Early this morning I could not find my phone, and was going into a hyper.

    The only means of communication I had was with Skype, and I couldn't call 999 if it became necessary on Skype.

    I eventually decided to go to Microsoft support, and a lady called Sarah eventually sorted it out by calling my phone repeatedly until I found it.

    I am explaining the whole thing, as you dont to have an autoimmune…

  15. Settings for sharing screen

    Share screen mode for Skype doesn't normally work so if there is a way to have settings to be able to know or alter the problem, then it would be very helpful.

  16. message sounds + ringtone sounds

    add sound to your app


    I think it would be great if you guys added the customizable ringtones back, im not sure why you removed them. and it would be AMAZING if you could enable / disable message sounds, and maybe even those sounds were customizable.

    i just want more sounds on this app, its so boring with literally the only sound being the notifications, ringtones, and your friend's voices. One more thing, imagine background sound, like ambience or calming music.

    Come on Microsoft! stick out from every other message program and give life to your app! for example, the…

  17. Stop the automatic update of Skype on older Macs

    It's absolutely essential that Skype not automatically update on older computers with a version that doesn't work. STOP THIS NONSENSE. Be a responsible tech company, not one that sends older computers to landfill for no good reason.

  18. Data storage location

    It would be great to be able to store Skype for Android data and cache on sd card. Or in any other location. It could be encrypted or not — per user wishes.

  19. Please enable "mirror flip" AT ONCE!

    It is very irritating to see oneself as a mirror image on Skype for Desktop... Why is it available on Zoom and not on Skype? Any reasonable explanation?
    This is a trivial issue that can be fixed very easily.
    Thank you for you improving your product.
