  2. Enable datestamp option to easily enable or disable. Allow for sorting messages by day, week, month. Allow to review across all contacts.

    A time stamp is useless if there is no date stamp also. I will need to stop using this poorly designed interface and go to others apps that do this by default.

  3. Scroll Sensitivity

    hallo, we need a Scroll Sensitivity setting. I suckle to scroll down the page even just a little bit. Possibly a bar to adjust this setting would be great :]

  4. Picture viewing mode

    In the picture viewing mode, where the previews are shown below, an option to slide those preview thumbnails would be super convenient. Just like there's an arrow to move to the next image, similarly if there was an arrow to move to the next set of previews would be amazing.

    We're game artists and use Skype all the time, for all our office works, since we're working from home. In order to check our old and new artwork after some changes that feature would be of great help.

    Skype is the best! Hope to see that feature soon.

  5. Get rid of the grey bars at top and bottom of Skype video call - to enhance full screen usage and to be a better tool than zoom or teams

    I think you should remove the gray bars on the top and bottom of the newest versions of skype and instead, make the entire screen visible. This was a great feature of older versions!

    I suggest this because the complete visibility of the skype screen is important to me and others - especially now in all the video conferences we are doing in Covid and now transitioning to more and more telework days. I have tried to use older versions of skype (8.61.0.87) that had this feature, but but I seem to have connectivity issues. And, I think all your…

  6. You could add video filters.

    If you have the app called zoom you could add some cool features from it like video filters, backgrounds,moustache options, lip colours etc.

  8. Skype - Simple

    my father and my aunt are 2 good examples of consumers who would greatly benefit from a tablet that is very simplified to use. These 2 relatives have used Skype to connect with friends and relatives - both over the years, but Skype was especially an important & necessary aspect/social connection for their lives during this last year. Both cannot understand basic computer use, so a device with large buttons / or contact images in which the user can just touch the image to call or connect to that person would be a very simple to create and very appreciated…

  11. Skype helper - multiple password requests for a single update

    I have had several Macbooks and in all cases Skype Helper should be named "Skype Hindrance". Virtually every time I have to update Skype (which is very often) I have to enter my password multiple times, 2, 3 or sometimes 4 times. This is clearly a bad piece of software which needs fixing please...

  13. Appearance custom Color without Gradient

    Add possibility for user to define custom accent color without gradient. Currently all available accent colors for dark mode (in appearance settings) are very bad when dark mode is on and all those accent colors have gradients. So please just add an option for the user to define custom color for balloons or hire better designer to redesign currently available colors for dark mode.

  16. Use the Share menu of Windows

    Stop adding a separate "Share with Skype" option to the context menu. Windows has a native sharing menu since Windows 8, use that, please.
