  1. Please return support for Skype 7.

    Please return support for Skype 7. the New version sucks to put it mildly. Please return support for Skype 7 and older versions. The new Skype does not have such features, unlike the classic one. For example: there is no "offline" status. PLEASE RETURN THE CLASSIC SKYPE.

  5. voicemail

    Customized voicemail for most business is a necessity. I will be cancelling because this feature is not available. Most professionals need a customized voicemail greeting.

    Please have the old Skype Classic back. The new one is too hard to use. I miss the old Gui, and the sounds.

  10. Full Participant Gallery View

    I would love to see a gallery view similar to other video conferencing platforms. A view where all of the participants in the call can be seen simultaneously. Though I understand that there may be legitimate reasons to keep the image larger and limit the number who are visible, the current version with 4 participants and the ribbon up top is useless for a large group discussion. Thank you!

  11. remove the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen

    i’m not a fan of the black bars at the top and bottom of the skype calls. it makes it hard to see the person i’m on call with and it’s not as attractive as the floating icons were. i thought that if i hadn’t touched the mouse for a bit that the bars would go away but they’ve remained and its a bit stressful and it’s an inconvenience to me and i’m sure it is for others. i hope you consider changing it back to the floating icons on the next windows update.

  20. Float + Full screen option

    The Float + Full screen option hid the icons a few days ago. It was an amazing experience to view the share screen in that mode. The icons "auto-hide" was a good feature

    The option is no more available. Can you please get that back.
