  3. API

    There seem to be multiple posts re access to API by third parties. It used to be available but not now. Be interesting to get an actual response and preferably action from Microsoft.

  4. programmable night mode

    How about an automatic day and night mode. So we don't have to change between dark theme and white theme everytime. Please add silent mode on Skype calls, specially when it's night. Would like to see normal, silent and vibrate mode only on Skype specially. On a programmable schedule, with the option to add contacts to a white list so the chosen few can ring through night mode. and wheres the "allways full screen video" option.

  7. API Access

    Can someone at the Mighty Microsoft explain why they now do not allow access to API. This seems a backward step and will only heighten the exit from Skype. Does Microsoft have a hidden agenda to kill Skype off??

  8. Remove SKype from computer

    I need a way to totally remove Skype from the computer -- other than to kill it in "task manager."

    How about a setting/control for that?

  9. Skype Numbers and API

    As a long time user and advocate of Skype I am dismayed that the service has been diluted by Microsoft. I have a number of Skype tele numbers. These were setup for business and personal calls. External software namely Pamela was able to access the API and provide separate greeting messages. An excellent service. NOW SKYPE have blocked API access and the service leads much to be desired. SO MICROSOFT PLEASE OPEN UP EXTERNAL ACCESS TO THE API or ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL SKYPE OFF.

  15. Preferences for receiving promotional emails from Skype

    I receive advertisement from Skype telling me to renew a subscription that I have cancelled, and I cannot find any way to stop the delivery of these messages. If this is indeed not possible, it is not acceptable. If it is already possible, you should make it much easier to find, to start with with a link at the bottom of the promotional email. Isn't there a law for this?

  18. Input user name and password automatically on private computer

    When I open Skype, I have to sign in each time or almost each time. It didn't use to be that way. I would like the option of signing in automatically on a private (my) computer when Skype is loaded.

  19. editing skype name and unlink with microsoft and delete old skype account

    skype must give and option to edit skype name any time and change it because its not easy to creat a new account and delete the old one. So now Name editing authority must be authorized to the customer.

    and unlink skype account with microsoft account option must be given to old skype accounts that they could delete old skype account and able to use a new with orignal emial account

  20. Select Network Connection to use

    Mac's can use multiple network connections. Can you allow select to the network that works (like Wifi vs Ethernet if both plugged in, and have access to the internet!)
