  3. simplify user names. Long (live. *) is useless.

    New subscriber was not given a simple username, instead was given a (live,) registration

    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.

  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. 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.

  9. PLEASE IMPROVE SUPPORT/HELP. IT IS FRUSTRATING AND DIFFICULT

    I have spent two hours trying to update credit card details for autorecharge and have no indication as to whether I have been successful in so doing..... Why not have a way of courteously advising that one has completed successfully.

  10. group calls

    why cant you explore having group calls that enable the conversation to add a random caller cell phone user to the conversation instead of putting the original call on hold and treat them as separate calls. That would make the whole experience so much better an you can carry the group call without interruption

  11. Deleting names in the Search/suggestion window in New Chat or people search

    When I type anything in the search bar in New Chat I get several names under people. I also get several names under people search on the home page. These names are of people who i may have contacted long time but I am not able to delete their names from the search/suggestion window. AND I DO NOT WANT TO BLOCK THESE PEOPLE. JUST WANT TO CLEAN UP THESE OLD NAMES WITHOUT BLOCKING THEM. I WAS ABLE TO DLETE THESE NAMES UNDER THE OLDER VERSION OF SKYPE UNDER THE PRIVACY TAB, BUT NOT ABLE TO DO SO IN THE NEWER…

  13. 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.

  15. 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.
