  1. Is there a way to turn off replies in a group chat. Like if I just want to make an announcement, but don’t want 100 people replying.

  2. It would be helpful to have an option that allows skype to recognize when you are using a second languauge but still keeps your native lang.

    I would like skype to recognize when I am using a second language so that accents are properly used while still keeping my settings on my native language. I use this site to do on line language classes.

  7. Surname sorting in Contacts section function adding

    Добавить в Контакты функцию сортировки по ФАМИЛИИ, а не только по имени. Очень поможет тем, у кого 100+ контактов. Как легче найти Александра Сидорова по имени Александр (30 человек) или по фамилии Сидоров (3 человека)

  10. Chat options

    There is a feature you have for recent and hidden chat wherein you can hide the chat and if they will message you back the hidden chat will show again. That is no longer working and I need that feature to be back again. I hope it will happen soon.

  14. Hello Team,

    At present, the skype is displaying an option to record the screen and later if I'm recording the screen then once the call is ended then the screen recording should come to me but the option is coming to another user who has attended the call.

  15. Hello! The choice of who can see me online is missing. I can't talk to all my contacts at the same time and when I don't they get upset.

    Hello!

    It would be helpful to show online status for one contact and offline for the rest.

    Thank you.
