  1. Add a Push to Talk

    Hi, I suggest that Skype adds a button for muting the microphone rather than having to go back onto Skype and clicking "Unmute". Push to Talk is a good name.

  3. Controllable Volume and Choosable sound from a file on my computer for Notification of New SMS Messages received

    I have a hard time knowing when I receive a SMS message from a contact. It would be great if I could choose from a file on my computer, a sound byte to notify me of a new message, and have the ability to control sound volume. Also, the ability to actuate a Popup Notice would also be good as part of this Control Feature for Notification of Messages.

  4. Inablility to change skype name makes it impossible to become anonymous.

    Even when an alias email is created the skype name remains the same and you are therefore unable to go anonymous if the skype name generated for you is your real name, wich is the case for many ppl." first.last@email.com" might give you "live:first.last" as a skype name for example. I want to be able to change my skype name or hide it on my alias email.

    Totally useless service from Microsoft Skype that all should be aware of and Microsoft should address as a matter of some urgency as this shows they have no concern for customers and not capable of providing a decent service.

    My Skype number +33 (0)977215991 was due for payment last week in 14th but was refused by my bank as card had expired. I received notification on 14, 15, 16 but first two went into Spam. On 17th I tried to change payment details but when I went into account to change payment method the number is no longer showing. I…

  8. New TranslatorI am having problems with the new translator. When initially announced, it was suggested by Community that enabling it immedia

    I am having problems with the new translator. When initially announced, it was suggested by Community that enabling it immediately would ensure that translations would continue automatically. They did not.
    Eventually after a break the new translator began to operate but it is unreliable and often simply stops in mid conversation and we can find no way of re-establishing it, although occasionally it will work at a later conversation although intermittently and sometime for only one half of the conversation. In short it is not fit for purpose.
    I have contacted Community in the hope of finding a solution and…

  10. Select Option / Facility to select which subscription to make use of

    Skype by default selects the last subscription to make use of. I have 3 subscriptions that I use at anytime and can't use the one I would like at times..

    This means that I might be charged world call rates for calls I would like to make back home.

    Please kindly vote this feature in so the relevant subscription can be utilized.

  14. teamviewer like remote pc control

    It would be nice to allow the control of pc or mac by the remote party by sending a code . Similarly like teamviewer is doing , and that they pretend to charge for.

  15. Status

    I try to keep my status on invisible, but Skype resets me all the time to "available" That sort of defeats the purpose of asking if I want to remain invisible.

  18. Add a way to go to messages from Gallery to see the conversation happened around the shared item

    Suppose I'm viewing gallery in any skype chat and now if I want to see the conversation happened around that particular media file or whatever I had shared, I just can't. I manually have to scroll the messages one by one until I find it.

    For reference you should try Telegram. When you;re viewing any images in it and when you right click on it, it gives you choice to go to that messages. So you can see the conversation happened around that media file. I hope this makes sense to you and you guys will work on the resolution.

  20. See rescinded invitations

    There are lots of spammers out there. I get 4 to 5 unsolicited chats per day. The spammers have become smarter and withdraw their invitations quickly if you do not respond immediately. It would be an effective anti-spam tool to be able to see who has invited you to chat and to be able to flag that invitation as legitimate or as spam. We have a list of blocked contacts. The withdrawn invitations could be listed there, too.
