  1. Skype Layout

    Hello, friends!
    I have a suggestion that most of the users may like. We all know that most of the people hate the new Microsoft design. I think it would be GREAT if you add something in the settings that can change the WHOLE Skype layout. (Ringtones, design, settings, UI, etc.)

    For example I have 3 layouts to choose from:
    Microsoft Design (Default)
    Skype 6 Design (Classic)
    First ever Skype version (Old)

    If I choose Microsoft Design nothing would change as this will be the default one.

    If I choose the Skype 6 Design, the app would change EVERYTHING so…

  4. Bring back old Skype

    We know you guys just want data from us and sell it to third parties, but please Microsoft just bring old Skype back atleast fire up the servers again.

    Nobody likes Skype 8 and even your employes hate it.

    Just please bring it back because it's just sad to see Skype being destroyed because you made a horrible version of Skype that everyone hates.

  8. Hate the update. Skype keeps getting worse and worse. Now its Logging me out and I have to sign back in every time.

    Skype 7 was great... Why do ya'll insist on making it crappier and crappier? Are you trying to make sure the few people who you havent run off yet will go soon? If so you're getting there.

  9. improve the black small window that appears when you have established a connection ...

    When you have successfully established a connection, (whether from Skye to Skype, or to phone subscriber the black window from where your see your call progressing is replaced by a small black window with very few buttons. So, everything becomes difficult like sending a document, sharing the screen, adjusting the audio, and so forth. Can you populate this window with small that would allow the user to get access to mots of the functions he has access to from the normal window.

    What is even more annoying is that this small window has a tendency to u-disappear. Sometimes it gets…

  10. Hey,

    Wouldn’t it be nice if you could name your friends with emojis of your keyboard too? Please fix this problem, whenever I try to use emojis on my friends’ names, they just get deleted right after (I mean that the emojis are removed)

  13. 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.

  19. Get rid of the white top bar (title bar/ app bar). Use custom theme consistent top bar.

    Follow the design of the Discord app for the App top bar/ Title bar where user clicks on to move the app.

  20. Fix the lagging user interface during skype to skype calls

    Fix lagging user interface during Skype to Skype calls. I can not tell when I'm muted, Skype takes long time to respond especially at beginning of call. The other day it took 7 minutes after starting call for me to start to get Skype response on user interface. It seems worse on groups less than 25 members, but UI seems to be considerably laggy for all group calls.
