  2. How can I (we) adjust Skype for incoming calls to Ring longer before the call is answered or automatically ended?

    Apparently this feature has not yet been added or included to the Skype Design as an Option or otherwise.
    I consider it too important to overlook in order to avoid missing an incoming call, and invite you to address it, and us at Skype Community regarding this issue in order to 'Meet Business Needs'.

  5. several grammatical errors in the Russian-language version of the site

    I found several grammatical errors in the Russian-language version of the site! I can send a screenshot with an explanation of where exactly - but how do you transfer the ".jpg file"?


    в русскоязычной версии сайта я нашел несколько грамматических ошибок! могу выслать скриншот с пояснением где именно - но как Вам передать "файл .jpg "?

  6. Keypad tone

    The keypad tones are delayed. This often throws me off when dialing quickly. The tone should start IMMEDIATELY on press of the keypad, just like the old ATT landline phones.

  7. Iconos de Skype más intuitivos/obvios

    Hola. Estoy enseñando a personas mayores a usar Skype para evitar su aislamiento en estos momentos de pandemia. Tienen mucha dificultad para identificar el icono de videollamada para comenzar una comunicación. El icono es pequeño, gris, no destaca, es poco intuitivo.

    También os digo que el procedimiento de solicitar a otra persona establecer contacto es muy poco práctico. Ven eso de "Di hola" y no saben lo que tienen que hacer.

    Por favor, buscad un diseño y unas indicaciones que faciliten que las personas mayores puedan usarlo más fácilmente.

  10. Pleeeeease, update monkey that appears after 7 clicks in chat

    Could you, please, customize it with holiday smiles. For example, it would be great, if I could summon a Headless Turkey in chats throughout Thanksgiving, or an Elf on Christmas holidays etc)

  11. Hello, I am an American soldier stationed overseas

    Hello, I am an American soldier stationed overseas and we use Skype for official business because of the security features. I was wondering if you could add a feature such as: I am in a meeting right now, I will call you back. The reason for this is that many times I am in a meeting and when someone calls there is no "I am in a meeting at this moment, will call you back.

  12. Instead of blocking someone for spam

    With Google it is easy to perform a facial recognition reverse search. Instead of blocking someone for spam, I would like to block them for being a scammer. I constantly get invites/calls from women in Ghana.

    It should also be made easier to report someone for being a scammer when you receive invites from several people using the a picture of a person (usually different pictures, but same person) but different names.

  14. Remove beating heart icon on Skype

    Remove the beating heart icon on Skype please!
    This is not a video game screen and there should be an option to stop it the flashing red light. Thank you
