  1. 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.

  3. DTMF

    Bring back the ability to input DTMF tones for conference calls, pin numbers, etc. I have been unable to input any DTMF data via keypad, touchscreen, or mouse since recent upgrades, rendering my subscription useless.

  4. I need the ability to receive notifications based off keywords in group chats. This was a feature in the previous version of desktop skype.

    I need the ability to receive notifications based off keywords in group chats. This was a feature in the previous versions 7 of desktop skype. It seems to have been left out or not implemented yet on the new version.

  5. Call forwarding from a land line without using app

    Hi devs,
    My idea comes from needs and pains.
    I'm a seaman paying unbelievable prices to communication comparing people ashore. At the end we get nothing than a very weak voice on the other side of the phone. Onboard ships we pay 25 usd for 1 hour by satelite. And if the called number is registered in US the balance can go up to 7 hours by US calling rates.
    Why not creating a call center which can connect our calls without internet usage onboard (cause we dont have)
    Thanks

  6. Bluetooth sound quality

    Fix the sound quality problems and skipping with bluetooth headphones. That would be a great start. Now conferences are a pain. Have to disconnect -> connect all the time

  9. Allow Dragon Naturally Speaking to work with Skype in a seamless manner.

    Dragon NaturallySpeaking is one of the premier voice to text applications on the market. I can use it here to enter this suggestion, and yet I cannot use it properly in Skype.

    Please do whatever is required to make these two programs work together seamlessly.

  10. Let us edit Private Conversation messages, if possible.

    If it is technically feasible, let us edit already sent Private Conversation posts. I miss that compared to Standard Skype.

  12. PRINT option

    worst skype version! please bring back the feature where I can open the image on a 3rd party app so I can print it directly without saving it first...or you can add a print option. or you can just bring back the previous version.. you don't need to upgrade or DOWNGRADE.. previous version works just fine..

  20. Special Sign for Smart Notifications

    When the notifications are disabled for the group chat, a special iscon is displayed for it in the "Resent Chats" list. The same should be for the group chats with "Smart Notifications" enabled (e.g. "@" sign should be displayed in the "Resent Chats").
