  2. message sounds + ringtone sounds

    add sound to your app


    I think it would be great if you guys added the customizable ringtones back, im not sure why you removed them. and it would be AMAZING if you could enable / disable message sounds, and maybe even those sounds were customizable.

    i just want more sounds on this app, its so boring with literally the only sound being the notifications, ringtones, and your friend's voices. One more thing, imagine background sound, like ambience or calming music.

    Come on Microsoft! stick out from every other message program and give life to your app! for example, the…

  5. The ability to use Skype for emergency calls (what in the uk would be 999 calls).

    I am type one diabetic, I have a advice in my arm that links to my phone that sends me updates on blood sugar levels. Early this morning I could not find my phone, and was going into a hyper.

    The only means of communication I had was with Skype, and I couldn't call 999 if it became necessary on Skype.

    I eventually decided to go to Microsoft support, and a lady called Sarah eventually sorted it out by calling my phone repeatedly until I found it.

    I am explaining the whole thing, as you dont to have an autoimmune…

  7. Put back the option "disable automatic update feature of the Skype"

    Please, put back the option "disable automatic update feature of the Skype", because there are various cases of incompatibility of newer versions of the Skype with older versions of Windows (e.g. Windows 8.1 with Skype 8.71.0.36).

  8. Create breakout rooms like in Zoom or Microsoft Team during group call.

    It will be very useful for all learning process. Skype is my favorite tool. I can't live without it but, unfortunately, I have to use Zoom or Microsoft Team instead of skype because Skype doesn't have this possibility. Please add it and after that you notice how many people again start to use this excellent tool. Thank you very much for Skype.

  9. stop forcing auto update / enable pause updates

    Option to pause updates ... cause all the versions after Skype version 8.67.0.87 have broken audio device selection
    I have my headphones set up as "Speakers" but Skype rings on the default device (and the "Ring on additional device" is off)

  12. Stop the automatic update of Skype on older Macs

    It's absolutely essential that Skype not automatically update on older computers with a version that doesn't work. STOP THIS NONSENSE. Be a responsible tech company, not one that sends older computers to landfill for no good reason.

  13. Please enable "mirror flip" AT ONCE!

    It is very irritating to see oneself as a mirror image on Skype for Desktop... Why is it available on Zoom and not on Skype? Any reasonable explanation?
    This is a trivial issue that can be fixed very easily.
    Thank you for you improving your product.

  17. Save files inside folder which name match either chat name or group name

    It would be great to save files inside folder which name match with chat name or group name, currently either we have to choose where to save or it saves inside Skype folder, the feature I requested allow me to save files into a folder structure, this way files from different-2 clients or chats don't mix up, it can be a optional feature but this would be very useful.

  18. Add the option to modify keyboard shortcuts

    I use skype allot and on different devices, so with so many different keyboard layouts sometimes it is hard to reach for example: if i want to hang up the call by using shortcuts, on wider keyboards it is harder to press ctrl + shift + H. So by adding the option to change which keys i wanna use for a specific action, then it makes it easier and more convenient to use them.

  20. Video recording settings

    Для уменьшения размеров видеофайла записи необходимо изменять размер окна изображения и количество кадров в минуту! В настройках камеры установите несколько готовых шаблонов окон и кадров (10 - 20)!
    To reduce the size of the recording video, you need to change the size of the image window and the number of frames per minute! In the camera settings, set several ready-made window and frame templates (10 - 20)!
