  1. Integrate incoming Skype chat message with other MS applications

    It would be nice to have notifications like "2 unread messages" in popup form, integrated with IE, Edge, Outlook, Office, Sharepoint, Visio, 365 etc. So that if a user is working in any MS application, can take note of an incoming Skype chat message.

  3. Pop Out Video Feed

    PopOut stays out regardless of where you're typing so you can make the convo window smaller, its disappearing acting is beyond annoying because the new update makes the window too large and multitasking impossible

  6. Simplify login!

    Simplify login!
    1. In ver. 8 when you log in you got a “welcome /splash screen” that don’t do anything, now I have to go to 3 windows just to log in should be one! Pretty please, remove it!
    2. Make skype remember my “live” account like it does with my Skype account (I got a dropdown list with the Skype account’s I used on a PC, but not the “live” accounts, it would be really convenient if it remembered the LOOOONG :) “live” account , not just the short Skype accounts) It would make switching between accounts easier, and/or…

  13. Skype charging $18.40 for a call to a land line that would have only had a one off cost of $0.37 is inexcusable.

    In Australia, all government Institutions and most businesses have a 1300 number. When these numbers are called there is only A one-off charge of $0.37 but because Skype charges these calls at $0.39 per minute, what should have been only a $0.37 cost if I had used a landline Skype Charged me over $18 for the same call. Add to this that calls to mobiles in Australia are not free as advertised on Microsoft 365 accounts. This service is next to useless in Australia.

  14. Sa imi bag pula in skypeul vostru

    Sa va iau skype ul in pula si toata echipa de desing, sa va pistati toti unul pe altul, cu sange.
    cand o sa va fie mai bine, sa va vedeti baietii *** sug pula !
    sa va iau mamele pe carbahal
    sa imi usuc papersul pe crucea ma-tii
    sa luati foc in somn
    sau daca vreti, sa va futeti toti la ultimul etaj, in timp ce va daram cladirea

  15. More contrasting system tray icon

    Can you make the system tray icon use a solid color instead of the current gradient? Now, when in DND, it's very hard to notice the yellow dot for missed events.

  16. allow paste into the diaload while in a call in UWP versions of Skype for conference call PINs

    the reason I'm still clinging on to the oldest version of Skype that I can on Windows 10 is that I make dozens of conference calls a month and I need to paste in long PIN numbers after the call has connected. this works reasonably well in classic Skype but has never worked in the modern or UWP versions of Skype. since I use Skype primarily for conference calls, this is a significant disadvantage.

  17. обновление скайпа=выход из акканта-отток клиентов

    Дорогие разработчики, добрый день.
    Уверен, что я не буду первый!
    Понимаю что регулярные обновления скайпа, для Вас крайне важны, чтобы показывать нам пользователям, новые рекламные баннеры!
    Но прошу Вас уже сделать что-то с постоянным выходом из аккаунта.
    Это такой огромный раздражающий фактор. Я из-за этого уже не пользовался скайпом пару месяцев.
    Рабочие связи меня заставили снова найти свой пароль от скайпа и зайти в него. Но такие частые обновления и вылеты из аккаунта для меня сильный раздражитель. Вспоминать свой пароль, и вводить его каждый раз после обновления - это неправильно!
    надеюсь Вы прислушаетесь к моему совету!
    Такое неудобство меня подталкивает…

  18. Bring back /alertson [text] chat command

    Bring back /alertson [text] chat command as a flexible tool in addition to smart notifications.
    It was very convenient to have user-defined word as a trigger for notification, not just @-mention

  19. Contacts

    This needs to be cleaned up and simplified. Very old contacts cannot be merged or cleaned. Very confusing why multiple contacts appear

    Linking seems to be device specific and not happening on the server level.... We shouldn't have to link contacts if we switch devices
