    Automatic answering and video is essential for elderly and impaired users to stay in touch during this pandemic and isolation. Why remove it in the latest version??? It should be improved and made more secure. Please ASAP.

God help the customer if this is what Skype and MS are reduced to in terms of their consumer orientation I am sure this feedback means nothing to anyone out there in your system and it is just a process fullfilment this **** survey ...

  11. Option to turn off automatic @ mentions when names are typed in messages

    The new automatic addition of an @ in front of people's names whenever you type them in a message is incredibly annoying. Every time I type "Hi John" Skype seems to think that what I actually wanted to do was type "Hi @John". Can we please have the option to turn this insanely silly new feature off?

  14. To block harrassment contacting by certain pattern in setting...

    I have installed Skype on my mobile (Android) and laptop (Linux).
    But I have been bombarded/harrassed 10-50 times everyday from some people (most of them are Chinese) asking to be my new contact. They are selling agents, gambling gangsters, with msg title:
    "live:.cid xxxx".

    Can you add a new funciton / setting to BLOCK this type of harrassment?

    For example: block any msg containing "live:.cid", block ip address starting "xxx.xx.", block msg containing certain language, block msg from a country, ....

    At least, add a function to all the user to do multi-selection of msgs for deletion, reporting, ...

  19. Ipad for the deaf/hard of hearing

    Please make this ipad friendly especially for the deaf/hard of hearing relying on National Relay Video Service with Skype. Full screen, multi-tasking and everything would be better on the ipad for better viewing of sign language being translated.
