  1. a bug with the last update

    Hello, there's a bug with the last update. When I restart my computer I see a message like that: https://d.radikal.ru/d35/1908/25/06950f9b1c50.png There are many people with the same problem: https://answers.microsoft.com/ru-ru/skype/forum/all/ошибка/1f92b0a8-4141-4119-ba01-da9990b7f90c I tried to reinstall an application but I get this message anyway. Can you do anything about that?

  2. More Customization/Support for Skype latest version

    Apparently, the new Skype version on Windows 10 doesn't support external call button like that of Plantronics Audio 628 unlike with the old versions. It renders the control button useless if Skype won't be able to support it. If it was able to do it before it should be able to do it on the latest version. It's like your update has gone backwards.

    Not only that, you have very limited customization for video settings. I had a chat session with your tech support, Ryan Mercado, he even remote accessed my screen but still, there's no option to flip the…

  6. I'd like to see a way to delete chat messages by grouping rather than one by one.

    the chat window get clogged up quite easily. I'd like to see a "select all" feature letting users delete as required.

  7. Add Direct Printing options in our Skype Attachment

    Please Add Direct Printing options in our Skype Attachment.
    Dear Developers, I face a problem many times. Every day I send and received lots of files and images. So please add a direct print option from the received files.
    That's helps us so much.

    Thank you.

  8. Fix Volume Control on Skype 8 for Mac

    The fact that I can't even change the volume on Skype independently from my system volume level is ridiculous, and, frankly, the sole reason I don't use Skype 8. This seems like a MASSIVE oversight to me, and as long as it remains unfixed, I will either continue to hunt down Skype classic workarounds or stop using Skype altogether (and I'm sure MANY others will agree). Please make Skype for Mac useable.

  10. Allow Update settings recently removed. Nobody wants these surprise updates, and nobody needs a shortcut placed on their desktop.

    How simple it would be, as most programs offer, as Skype used to, to have a setting for updating preference, eh?

    The more Microsoft controls user experience and constantly jacks around with updates and interface, the more Google and Apple are empowered.

  12. Spelling: It should be possible to set the default communication language for each contact in Skype

    Each contact should have a setting for the language you use communicating with this contact.

  14. Bring back the option to use alternative ports for Skype connections

    In the Skype settings, there used to be an option to "Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections". This no longer exists and is causing port conflicts for me on my network.

  15. copy chat outside of the Skype application space. Duh

    I can select text from a chat, and copy it within skype, but a user should clearly be able to copy chat text and paste it outside of the Skype application space. Duh

  18. Bring back the possibility of chat settings! In earlier version one could set the time for for how long a chat log was kept. This is no long

    Bring back the possibility of chat settings! In earlier versions one could set the time for how long a chat log was kept. This is no longer available.
    Why make changes all the time and remove well working functions from earlier versions? Really annoying!

  19. Add other languages to Skype

    Hi
    I'm a Persian native and I suggest in languages section adding the Persian option. It's relatively easy and even I can help you with that, though by knowing Microsoft I'm sure that's really ready for you.
    Thanks
