  1. Know which person in the video call removed you

    That's quite annoying when someone anonymously repeatedly removes you from an important video call.

  3. Link correct Skype account with Microsoft account

    Allow linking original Skype (pre-Microsoft) with Microsoft account. I have a duplicate Skype account that I do not use linked to my MS account. I would very much like to link my correct Skype to my correct MS account. Add Skype account and replace. Doesn't have to delete, but should unlink.

    Also be able to change pre-MS Skype Name.

  6. My status changes itself!

    I put the status "invisible." But during a day it spontaneously and stubbornly changes to "online" itself , despite the fact that I do not exit Skype or exit - it does not matter .. almost every time I open a page on a windows 10 laptop or android phone, I have to change it to Invisibility from online though I didn't change it myself before. How is this possible? I have a feeling of the presence of another person who, without me knowing, who changes my settings. I'm right? How to avoid this problem or mistake? how to strengthen…

  7. Why do you make sure we update?

    Why do you make sure we update? Why not just bring back support for older versions of Skype? Is it so difficult for you? Do you like it when people leave the project? You would return support for older versions of Skype, there would be no such noise. And you would think about the elderly people, how they were not comfortable in "Skype 8"!!! You would think of older people first than killing a normal Skype!!! Now, when I download classic Skype, I always see a survey in it: either update, or go fuck yourself. So that... I advise you…

  8. Block group

    It should be possible to block group. So that that group can not constantly keep adding you in.

  10. Meet Now Meeting Password

    Why can't I set a meeting password in Meet Now? if URL generated by Meet Now is leaked to a third party, they can access the chat and shared files with guest privileges. I understand the benefits of easy access, but I want to protect my privacy.

  11. Status

    I try to keep my status on invisible, but Skype resets me all the time to "available" That sort of defeats the purpose of asking if I want to remain invisible.

  13. Please create an option for deleting the search history in skype for names searched to not pop-up for privacy issues, thank you.

    This option will let our private searched or contacted person be hidden and not to be found out just by looking into the search results even after the chat and call history is deleted.

  17. Status switching itself from "Invisible" to "Active"

    Whenever I set my status "Invisible", It occasionally changes to "Active" online status itself. Even I am logged in and while using Skype, status changes to visible. It is really annoying. I want Skype to keep my status preferences and Save it. It is kind of Bug. Please consider this feedback and improve Status Settings!

  18. Unlinking Skype

    Why isn't there a way to unlink my Skype account from the Microsoft account already? This entire feature is extremely anti-user friendly since plenty of people want to either delete Skype or put Skype on a totally different Microsoft account. Whether it's because we just have zero need to use Skype, or we may feel as if a brand new account can become a vulnerability, we should always have the ability to unlink and delete our Skype accounts without deleting our Microsoft account.

  19. Status changing by itself often

    Hello,
    I have updated to your new update the other day and the issue I have reported many times is still happening. Under no circumstances should the status change from “Invisible” to “Online” without the account holder doing it themselves. Please fix this bug so the status won’t change for any reason. Thanks
