  2. Add Kaizala like channels to Skype

    Add channels on Skype where you can announce things to a large audience like the ones in Kaizala. One of the official Skype channels should be an insider channel so insiders who subscribe to it can get a summarization of the release notes on the Skype app so they wouldn't have to go to the Skype website to see what's new. Allow insiders to unsubscribe from channels as easy as leaving a group ( with the touch of a button). Also, there should be a comment feature along with the reply feature so it'll be easier to get feedback from…

  6. Show red and yellow dots

    In the "Active now" section, looks like we can only see the contacts that are active, but not the ones that are on "do not disturb" or "away". Please show all active contacts again

  7. Windows version does not allow me to put in number Options when calling . Example "enter 1 if your call is for accounts or 2 etc. .

    Windows Skype does not allow me to enter options. For ex. Enter 1 for Accounts, or 2 for Customer service etc. It makes it useless for me when dialing a bank for instance when abroad. I have to use the Classic Version for that.

  9. Arreglen de una vez problemas históricos de Skype

    Skype tiene históricamente dos problemas grandes muy grandes que en ninguna de las actualizaciones a través de los años han sabido solucionar ni resolver. Primero resulta imposible tener una conversación fluida, siempre hay cortes en algún momento. No pueden culpar a las conexiones de la gente ya que esto no sucede con otras aplicaciones similares como WPP.
    Segundo y lo que más me irrita, estamos en 2019 y ustedes todavía no proveen un servicio decente de audio y micrófono que se adapte adecuadamente a las nuevas tecnologías. Si decido utilizar mi parlante, antes de los que se conectaban hoy Bluethoot…

  11. Back Up Skype Einstellungen

    Die Einstellungswahl nimmt zu. Um die nicht mit jeder Update ändern zu müssen, wäre gut eine Möglichkeit zu haben, die Sype-Enstellungen zu sichen und wiederherzustellen.

  12. Suspend account

    Quick link button in app to suspend account after finding suspicious activity. I recently had someone use my credit and with auto-charge ran up several charges before I could find away to stop the re-charge. A quick suspend button from with app should suspend all activity including auto-charge until user can verify and reset account passwords etc

  13. Prevent contact filter reset on tab change

    Current behavior (on desktop)
    - Activate Contacts tab
    - Filter by online (list only online contacts)
    - Go to Chats tab
    - Come back to Contacts tab
    - Filter by online did reset to all
    Expected behavior:
    - Filter remain to online
    - Sort by online contacts instead of filtering

  14. There should be a way to set the priority order of devices used for audio and video out and in

    Computers these days don't have a fixed set of hardware devices, it can completely change in a moments notice.

    For example, a microsoft surface device could be plugged into a "docking" station, and using the video card in the keyboard unit, a camera connected to the keyboard unit, a professional usb microphone connected to the keyboard unit, two large 32" screens are used for display. With a keypress, every single one of those units goes away. And the other way around, when the keyboard is plugged in, these devices show up and become available.

    Whenever something like this occur, skype…

  15. Microsoft has ruined Skype. Why strip out Ctrl Find, Jump Back, and emasculate Ctrl C so it only copies 20% of what you select and "copy"?

    Why ruin prior Skype? Even fundamental software conventions (that were put in place 20 years ago by Microsoft) have been stripped out of the "new and improved" Skype. Please provide a safe pathway back to a prior version of Skype and seriously, what were you thinking? Epic fail.

  16. password on messages

    I was thinking you should have an option for messages where they can have a choice to have a password or code for a chat if they don't want anyone to read their conversation

  18. make auto-download an option

    I use skype at work and recieve a number of files on a daily basis. It's quickly become tedious to have to manually download every single thing, I would just like the option for skype to automatically download files, images, etc. recieved and be able to designate a folder for it all to go into

  19. Skype shouldn't send IMG data from paste (ctrl+v) without confirmation.

    Skype shouldn't send IMG data from paste (ctrl+v) without confirmation. You don't wanna send to your manager photo of your cat and you don't wanna send to your friend skreenshot of work data accidentally.
