  3. 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.

  5. Need an option to only save messages for a certain amount of days/months/years history. Skype is getting bogged down.

    Give an option in Settings to only keep a certain amount of days/months/years history as preferred by the user. Older version of Skype had this option.
    My internet is slow already and sometimes it takes 4-5 minutes to load a GIF or other things.

  13. Gmail Not Working

    If your Gmail is not sending or receiving email in emails, you can check if the source of the problem is with Google. Go to the Google Status Dashboard to see if there is a Gmail failure, a suspected failure, or a reliable service report.

  15. 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…

  20. How to fix Google Assistant Not Working

    If Google Now doesn't work on your phone while driving, try restarting your phone first. If that doesn't work, follow these steps.
    Make sure a third-party program, such as DriveMode, is installed. Such programs can interfere with connecting to the Internet while driving. If you have DriveMode installed, try disabling or removing it. Now, just in case, restart your phone and try Google Now again!
