    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request. We have thought this through and due to other high priority engineering that the product needs we decided to prioritize other user-requested items for now. Please keep continue supporting this Idea and we will review it again later. I’ll let you know if anything changes.

  3. Bulk deletion feature for contact list

    I've seen other people posting about this. But I find extraordinary that this feature does not exist.
    If importing contacts in bulk is an option, why deletion is not?

    Who has the time of the day to delete hundreds of contacts, one by one?

    This is not Microsoft standard. I am not sure if they will discontinue this app since it has become worse along the years instead of improving the user experience.

  4. Multi-select Deletion of Contacts and Delete All Feature (Case Number 1487623533)

    Multi-select Deletion of Contacts and Delete All Feature (Case Number 1487623533)

    Facebook-style shady tactics come to mind with the fact that importing contacts is super simple via the phone app share feature but deleting them in bulk is super painful as this requires a 3 to 4 step process for individual contact.

    Please fix this asap. I'm a huge fan of Microsoft but this is off-putting to say the least.

    Thx,

    Steve R.

  5. Show local time for contacts

    I would be nice to see contacts local time, especial for Countries with different time zones Read: USA Canada Australia ………..and the fact that DTS are on different dates in different part of the world, would make it even more useful .

  6. Sorting contacts by groups

    In the classic version of Skype, I had different groups in my contacts: WORK, SCHOOL, FRIENDS, and so on.
    In the new Skype, all contacts are combined into one common group.
    You can add the ability to sort contacts by groups as in the classic version ?

  7. Leave multiple groups or delete multiple contacts at once!

    Leave multiple groups or delete multiple contacts at once.
    It would be a really useful feature if you could leave multiple groups at once if you've got a lot of them and I mean a lot , I've got like 250 groups and I have to manually leave a group, one by one.

  11. Allow Skype users to send many new contact requests and search many contacts in Skype without their accounts getting suspended

    Allow Skype users to send many new contact requests and search many contacts in Skype without their accounts getting suspended. I use Skype chat and friend making websites where people post their Skype IDS and send new contact requests to each other to chat and make new friends. Hence, I will be sending many new contact requests and searching many contacts in Skype. I want to search many contacts in Skype to talk to new people and add them on Skype and add many new contacts without my account getting suspended.

  18. You really need to FIX the remove contact feature.

    I followed the instructions I have seen posted BUT contacts I have removed still show under MY CONTACTS.

    It makes this bad on a PC but even WORSE on a mobile device.

  20. Mass delete of contacts

    There should be an option for the users to be able to delete multiple contacts at once.

    There are users who use skype since the beginning and removing contacts is a must.
