  2. 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…

  3. 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…

    Thank you all for sharing your ideas! We have a lot of great feedback from you and we really appreciate it! We love the passion!
    We used to categorize your submissions with lists of multiple requests, however we’re overwhelmed now. Going forward we will only accept submissions with single requests. It will help us to better prioritize which features we will work on next and understand what is most important for you.

    Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Skype!

  9. sir,While a meeting .some members mute audio,some remove others ,it shoud be restricted and the person doing any action should be displayed.

    only Admin should be allowed to add or remove the members. During a meeting there is a message you are removed by some participant. His name should be displayed. Hope for early attention

  10. Skype for Windows on ARM Desktop app badly needed

    Hi,

    Can you tell me when Skype will be released for Windows on ARM and where on your Roadmap it is?

    Windows on ARM PCs have been out a few years now and whilst the 32-Bit Win32 App works, due to software emulation not optimally.

    Apple also announced on the 22nd of June Macs are moving to ARM starting the end of the year and they expect the transition away from Intel to ARM to take 2 years. Both Microsoft and Adobe are working on ARM compatibility.

    Frustratingly the Skype UWP app was written for ARM64, but that's been removed…

  15. Skype Classic

    Please add Skype Classic back. Skype Classic should have the old logo, sounds, emojis, gui, in Skype Classic guests had more options. Skype Classic was easier to use. Please give the option to download Skype Classic.

  17. Skype consumes too much RAM

    I did upgrade my skype to the newest version is 8.65, and unbelievable skype consumes too much my memory, eventhough skype is running in the background and in non-active but it consumes sometimes from 500MB to 1GB RAM.
    I wanna know the reason why and how to makes skype uses less RAM than now ?

    We hear you. We love Skype version 7 too. We’re working to build the Skype experience you’ve come to depend on for so long on today’s platforms for today’s user. It would be impossible to bring back the full catalog of features available in previous versions of Skype all at once, our engineering systems just don’t work that way. We are committed to evolving the current Skype experience to match your needs over time. As we release new Skype features, we’ll update this site. You can also follow @Skype and @SkypeInsider on Twitter for the latest news too.
    Thank you all for your feedback.

  19. Unlink Skype Account from Microsoft account and Skype ID change

    There should an option to change your Skype ID or at least unlink your Skype account from your Microsoft account. I linked my friends Skype account to my Microsoft account by mistake and now there's no way I can unlink those 2 accounts or even atleast change the Skype ID. Its super annoying as its happened to some of the people I know as well who are equally irritated, I really hope there's a solution to this mess real soon

  20. possibility to exclude a guest participant

    because some people we have excluded from joining our groups, they use the ability to join as a guest. it would be useful to be able to choose whether to accept them.
