Hi. A large part of the world will be moving to remote work in the following months. Working via Skype makes us safe, but it could make us even safer with a simple feature. We all know that face touching can spread viruses, and we touch our faces during long conference calls all the time. What If Skype would detect the moments of unconscious touches and give us a small notice to stop. This would greatly improve our bad habits and keep us all safer during the coronavirus outbreak.
We made a short video about this feature. Be safe.
Add the ability to customize different types of notifications and its settings for calling/receiving/IM, ringtones, volume, online/offline..
possibility to modify sounds and notifications like in Skype 7
- startup and quit sound
- ringtones (in/out coming)
- when somebody goes online/offline
- ability to disable all notifications
- notification even when active974 votes
Some of the most consistent feedback we’ve received from you has to do with sounds and how you are notified about the goings on in Skype 8. We understand that all of these things are important for you and we are working on it.
Thank you for your patience

Thousands of teachers use Skype for online classes each and every day.
It would be very helpful for teachers to block all message previews and notifications during a call, so that they can focus on the class fully.
Message previews and notifications should still be active for the student they are teaching at that moment, because teachers switch to other programs while screensharing with the student and cannot see the chat at all times.8 votes
Play a sound to notify me when I receive a message. Light up the Skype tray icon. Hard to see that microscopic number in the icon .

please give notification "SOUND" when contact goes from "AWAY' to "ACTIVE" as unless you are looking at the skype page, you do not know when they are available again. This would be very helpful.5 votes
I have EVERYTHING enabled but I still can't get Skype 220.127.116.11 to play ANY sound when I receive a message!!!
I tried all the suggested things, finally ending up with ALL ENABLED but nothing works!
Why can't this simple thing be fixed???4 votes

I recommend Skype to restore the feature for notification that is DO NOT show a preview banner at the right corner and keep the sound when having a notification or separate those options. Currently, when I turn off "Chat Notification", I can't hear the sound when having a notification, but if I turn on "Chat Notification", a banner shows at the right corner with chat content. It's really inconvenient function.17 votes
I would be great if I could easily assign a unique sound to some of my contacts or when I receive a message. I couldn't find where to do this .5 votes

Make notification / error in case if a user forget to click the Stop Recording Video button. I recently lost valuable video because I clicked the End Call button instead of Stop Recording button.
Skype should ask a user "Do you want to save your video recording?"
But it did nothing. My video is gone. I am so upset. Please, please make this notification to make people know that they about to lose the whole video.3 votes
We want to change the default sound. Also please enable the option for customise sound of group and people.3 votes
Someone kicks/signs out others in school groups and teachers go mad! Sometimes kids playing with others microphone settings..
Sadly there is no way to find out who is the troll.
I have a simply recommendation. When someone was being signed out, there is a notification, that xyz user is signed out.
This notification should be extented with name name of the user who did that. For example:
"xyz" signed out by "abc"
Could you implement this small change in the next release, please?
