  1. Mute Group Notifications.

    Can you please provide group notification mute option?

    Like whatsapp, So I can mute notification of specific group.

    Mute means not sound but notification will not appear in desktop after mute.

    Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. There is a way how to permanently delete your Skype account. Just follow the steps here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/all/how-to-delete-skype-account-permanently/2baea2a4-6283-4589-95f5-22b3f034c878

    However, if you will delete your Skype account, you will also delete your Microsoft account and you’ll no longer be able to sign in to other Microsoft consumer products or services such as Outlook.com, Office Online, OneDrive, Xbox Live, or Windows.

    Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. There is a way how to permanently delete your Skype account of course. Just follow the steps here: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/all..

  9. Don't close the Skype window, when closing an image from a chat

    Please, don't close the Skype window, when closing an image from a chat! This is annoying!!!

    When I close an image, I expect to go back to chat window, instead, skype is being minimized to tray.

  10. Disable call window

    I have two monitors. I absolutely do not need the popup view of the person I am calling. It gets in the way and the person I am talking to already has an entire monitor dedicated to them. If I close it, click on Skype, then click off IT COMES BACK. The old version didn't do that. If you're going to force me to upgrade my version against my will after I opted-out of automatic updates then AT LEASE UPDATE ME TO A VERSION THAT ISN'T WORSE THAN THE OLD ONE.

  14. Please give the split window feature. It's the only thing keeping me from ditching skype and just using discord.

    Now that I've been forced to update, split window is gone. It's the only thing that Skype had that I preferred over discord, so if it doesn't have it there's really no reason for me to use skype.

  17. Allow Skype to send SMS to mobile numbers

    Apart from the Win32 app, it is literally impossible to use Skype to send an SMS to an arbitrary mobile number. Fix this.
