  1. Active call window/modal

    Add an option in settings to switch off the active call modal.
    I.e. When I'm on a call or group call and I switch away from my Skype screen the small active call modal is always there. It is of no use to me, I understand it may be use to some so if this could be an option to show it or not, that would be marvellous.

  3. Don't remove the details of the person if they block from the Logs

    Miscreants call and do vulgar activities on Skype and then they block the victim after which the details of the miscreant are gone and are not traceable to report. Make sure the log details are still present even if the person blocks, to file a formal complaint and present the log as a proof.

  4. See your own subtitles

    When you turn on subtitles, you only see others' subtitles, but I think it would be better if you could see your own subtitles. This way you could see what others see.

  6. A cell phone should NOT be required for to validate Teams.

    I don't have a cell phone and even if I reinstated my prepaid I'd have a different -- and temporary -- number.

  7. Here is a Bug in your Message Box

    A conversation between two person or in a group amoung all members can be editable for a time of period
    Like in other chat apps(e.g whatsapp) you can delete send message untill a fixed time if the sender deletes any message the reciever will get a message deleted notification in notification bar
    But In Skype this thing is just reverse.
    A sender can edit and change the content of message any time and it will be render on the reciever side without any notification.
    This will lead the conflits in conversation, one can change their old send messages without any…

  8. Dark icon

    There is no dark icon option in appearance settings for iOS or Android. This would be great to compliment the dark mode. Thoughts?

  10. Tag multiple contacts at once

    Imagine there are 20+ contacts in group chat and we have to Tag only 6 contacts every time! So, rather than @mentioning those 6 contact names one-by-one every time, need an option to make a Team or Group of those 6 contacts. So we can tag and notify them in just single @mention.

    • We can add this feature in "Contact" menu. so anyone can create and manage there own personal Team or groups of contact
    • Need an option to create as many Teams or groups we want.
    • We can rename the Team/group
    • We can add or remove users from the…

  13. Text styles/colours/highlights

    That you can make text coloured in any colour and make text styles easier to use. also that you can highlight text

    Here are the ideas I would love to see:

    Idea 1:

    Put a B for bold, put a I for italic, put a U for underline and an S for strike.
    Put a highlighting button and choose what colour you want to highlight it with.
    Put a text colour thing and choose a colour.

    Idea 2:

    Use the & or § symbol to style/colour/highlight the text.

    e.g.
    §b/&b = bold
    §u/&u = underline
    §4/&4 = dark red
    §r/&r…

  14. Custom Emoticons / Emojis

    In discord you can create your own emojis for different servers, in this case, skype
    should have the ability to create custom emoticons for groups.

    If you don't know how it should work, here are 2 ways I would love to see.

    Idea 1:

    Upload an image for a static, and gif for a moving one.

    Idea 2:

    You will be able to make your own emoticons using a emoji creator type thing.

    Like you can choose skin colour, eyes, mouths, noses, face additions and more!

    Call it "Emoticon Customisation".

  16. Merge a Skype account with another exisiting Microsoft account

    I have a Skype account that is currently not merged to my Microsoft/Xbox Live account, and I am wondering if there could be a way for such a feature to be rolled out sometime in the future?

  17. i suggest to a code that gives you some so called "hacks" but make it super hard to find the code.

    i suggest to a code that gives you some so called "hacks" but make it super hard to find the code. Also, make it extreme badge for someone who gets the code. And..make the "hacks" is good (put the hacks code into the "Share other links for others to join)

  18. Aumentare le Notifiche lettura da 20 persone a molte di più

    Salve, ho un gruppo di oltre 20 persone e quando scrivo non vedo più le notifiche di lettura (cosa che accadeva sotto le 20 persone), è possibile elevare dalle attuali notifiche lettura messaggio da 20 a 50 60 100.... l'importante è aver la possibilità di vedere chi legge i miei messaggi.

  20. participant list display

    when the number of participants increases, then we could +2 like that apart from some of the participant being shown in default view of group call. But if we click that +2, it shows the entire participant list instead of those participants which are not visible in the defalt view.

    it would be good if we can show only that 2 particpants when we click +2.

    also there can be another icon which shows the entire participant list.
