  1. Group calls - when add people have option to call them in Skype or on any one of their numbers

    Thanks for allowing me now to add phone numbers easily to a Skype contact, in the latest version of Skype. When doing a group call, now, I cannot click on a contact and choose the number or Skype name I want to call them on. I used to be able to do that. Now, I can just add them, and Skype seems to decide kind of randomly how that person is called - I presume its first preference is that persons Skype name. That is not always good - someone may not have access to Skype, but have access to…

  3. Can we get the option to hear Audio alerts for messages through headsets and speakers both, especially when we aren't wearing headsets?

    Can we get the option to hear Audio alerts for messages through headsets and speakers both, especially when we aren't wearing headsets?

    The new version now allows for this feature for calls (thank you), but can you also do it for new messages?

  5. Improvements for people with eye dysfunctions

    People with Macular Degeneration and Blood Vessels Thrombosis are not able to change to font to the desirable size nor to bold it nor nothing!
    Very close relative of mine has these terrible conditions and makes the usage a real struggle!
    It is ridiculous and can be considered as a discrimination - it is surprising how your team can change the settings without considering such disabilities?!
    Please do your best as this requires almost no efforts to be adjusted!
    Thanks in advance!

  7. Activity a few days ago

    Tell me please, with the updated version of Skype, they no longer write the exact time when a person is online. Writes Activity a few days ago. Faced with such a problem, I now can’t see if a person deleted his account at all or what was wrong with him, was he online, day, two, month, a year ago.

  9. Automatic Updates

    Please give us the option to turn off automatic updates. At the current way, it doesn't even ask permission to install the updates. We as users need more control over the update process. We don't want Skype controlling us.

  12. CONTACT SHARING

    DO NOT SHARE USERS CONTACTS WITH OTHER USERS ... create a privacy setting that does not allow other users to see your contact list. It is 2019! It is a breach of privacy ...

  13. Ref: Mutual Contacts

    Hi,
    Your suggestions in Skype of lists of contacts which have mutual friends is a total breach of privacy, there are many reasons why this should not be shown to others or myself, on most occasions people do not want others to know of mutual contacts and even if one does not know to which friend the mutual contact belongs it can be easily found out and causes a lot of arguments and suspicions and jealousy. It’s practically the same as putting mutual friends in the newspaper for all to see, who came up with this ridiculous option? Please get…

  15. option to disable skype

    have an option in general settings to disable skype completely, it's ridiculous to say that you are working on this and it will take time, since this option was available in the old format .

  19. New Features should arrive Turned Off

    Due to your resent act of un-privacy update where you forced us to be in recommendations, forced recommendations upon us AND made us searchable online, which I find to be a breach of privacy and a breach of trust between me and your product, I would HIGHLY recommend you to have every new feature turned OFF as you ship it.

    Not everybody is the same, not everyone wants the same. So why force everybody to get the same updates?

    Make sure your new set of new features are given to us in a notification first, and tell us how to…

  20. Suggestion of contacts depending on mutual contacts is violation of privacy and my confidentiality of contacts

    I don't like the new feature of suggesting mutual contacts to be added. I have some contacts which I don't want to let other people on my Skype to know. But this feature shows the list of all my contact to other contact as suggestion that you have one mutual contact. This is not good as per my privacy. There should be some option to handle and control this if I want to share my contact details with other contacts or not. For example in my skype I have added my clients as well as my employees. But I want…
