  1. a new font in the settings less Bold, more attractive, sleeker

    using a better font inside the app, because it looks too bold and annoying to look at.

  10. Report a bug

    Fix the issue that in Windows 10 settings when you increase the text size, the Skype window does not scale accordingly and puts the entire screen and window oversized and unviewable, effectively making skype unusable

  15. Создание опроса в Скайпе. Кол-во символов.

    Здравствуйте, уважаемые!

    Создание опросов в скайпе - одна из функций, выгодно выделяющая Вас на фоне конкурентов. Конечно, такой функционал есть и у других мессенджеров, но на данный момент реализовано это лучше всего у скайпа, имхо.

    Но вот ограничение символов в опросе - очень суровое. Сколько их там? Кажется 40... Этого не хватает практически не для чего. Написать день недели, название ресторана и время, не говоря уже про адрес - не хватит. Описать какую-то задачу или проблему - тоже нет. А что мешает?) Я один едва-ли смогу "изменить мир" и заставить вас доработать функционал, но в качестве отзыва оставлю.

    И ещё!…

  17. improvement introducing a calendar

    It will be a good improvement to introduce the possibilities to have a calendar to manage my presence in Skype.

    There should be the possibility to define a calendar for day and also for hours
