  2. Deletion of Skype account without deleting MS Account.

    Allow user to delete their Skype Profile without it effecting their MS Live Account. This feature is very much needed for people especially as you (MS) have now introduced MS Teams as the next communications software.

    Give back choice and STOP forcing people to be signed up to things they do not want.

    I have had a Skype Account since before MS bought Skype...

    All was well until I created an MS Live account on a Windows 8 Laptop and was then given a new Skype account, then had the same thing happen when I got a new desktop with…

  3. To be able to import Skype version 7.xx files/history to Skype version 8.xx

    The old Skype before 2018 used an old local database/cloud which cannot be merged with the 2018 and so on version of Skype as of now.

    Being able to either merge the data together so you're able to see your old conversation files/history with the new cloud could result in a much better Skype experience, or users with data Main.db file (from 2017 - before) will be able to merge this file locally to the new Skype (2018 - now); then updated to the new cloud.

    This can resolve users that wants to read their old data (like me).

  5. Ability to save the file regardless of the coincidence of the name with the open file

    The ability to save the file regardless of the coincidence of the name with the open file
    I ran into a problem to accept and save a file, provided that I already have a file with the same name open on my computer.
    I propose to consider the possibility of saving and accepting the file regardless of what is open in the system and used. Those. check if a file with the same name as you were sent to Skype already exists or open, then save a new file with the addition of the word "copy" or the time of…

  9. More emojis

    I would love to have more emojis to choose from, even thought the selection is very large, I still have trouble with finding emojis that suit my message. For example, If I am doing something like the dishes, and I need to explain t someone what i'm doing, I can click on the "Doing Dishes" Emoji so they understand what I am talking about without having to wtie out that entire sentence. But I do understand that these things do take some time to create, I would love to see a larger variety. Thank You

  13. Continue to work on Skype Classic versions

    Hello,
    I have been complaining for years about getting Skype classic back in action. The topic is not dead yet, especially in 2021. People are feeling sorrow at the same time. Well, the new version of Skype is one of the worst and abysmal things ever made!

    I suggest you complete this:
    7.42.0.011
    7.42.1.344
    7.43.1113.1198
    7.43.9999.2221

    7.44.0001.12344

    And so on...
    If you wanna make skype the best, then you gotta restore all old Skype versions!
    ALSO, PUT THE SKYPE CLASSIC BACK FOR PC, MAC, WINDOWS, LINUX, ANDROID, IOS, UBUNTU, CHROME OS AND EVERYTHING! GET SKYPE BACK FOR XBOX AND TV…

  17. Status of screen shared

    There should be a indication on someone's profile that they are presenting in any call like there is in Microsoft Teams. It will be very handy and useful, so they don't get disturbed.

  18. Export chat history for history migration to new phone

    Skype for android need option (without having to root my phone) to backup or migrate my chat history to a new phone.

    Deal breaker for continuing to use skype over whatsapp or signal (both of which have something in place to do this)

  19. Make Skype Good Product as Older Skype

    Skype was a far better product in the past without many competitors. Now, it's a real struggle even to send a message as it shows lots of connection-related issues. Please make it better as in the past at least to stand along with other products such as Google meet, Zoom, Viber, Whatsapp.
    To be honest with you, older Skype was able to connect even with very slow dial-up connections. Now it even fails to connect with a fiber connection. But, at the same time, we are able to have video conferences with all the other above-mentioned products.
