  2. I just want to be able to dial a phone number and speak with someone (who is not a contact, and never will be a contact).

    I just want to be able to dial a phone number and speak with someone (who is not a contact, and never will be a contact).

    Where has this, the most useful feature, gone? I've done it for 11 years!

  3. Block List

    When you have a Skype Number you receive a lot of Spam Calls, as with a regular phone. It would be great if you can import lists (CVS ect.) of phone numbers witch can be blocked by Skype. This can be added to the existing Menu Blocked Contacts.

  5. This new version doesn't seem to be an improved one and rather seems like a pain. Logs-off by itself very often.

    I would love to have the previous/old version of Skype and hate this new upgrade or latest version. Can I go back to the older version.

    Since I had upgraded to this new version, I have been having trouble. Here is the list of pain areas;
    1. Unable to see 'Missed Calls', which was visible and very convenient in the previous/old versions.
    2. Skype logs-off very frequently without any logic or justifications.
    3. The app seems like very unstable.

  6. Put the ''chat'' on the right side when you are in a call

    Now: the chat is on the left side, where the contacts are when you are in a call.
    idea: the chat on the right side when you are in a call.
    This will make navigation between contacts easier when you are in a call.

  7. Turn off last seen

    Please provide the option to turn off last seen. People should have the option to have privacy.

  9. "add to call"

    In Skype Classic, you can add incoming calls to an existing call. This facility does not appear to be available in Skype 8.
    I have used Skype for small conference calls for ages, just give them my skype "landline" number and then add them as they call in.
    Please add this back in to Skype 8.

  10. Outbound ring tone is VERY LOUD and distorted

    When making an outbound call I have to remove my headphones. The ring tone is very loud and distorted. But when the person on the other end answers the volume is normal.

  12. Automatically sign out when shutdown Computer

    I would like to request for option "Automatically sign out when shutdown Computer". Previously, Skype(without Microsoft) has this option.

  13. Message Recovery

    Message recovery- being able to recover messages from up to a few years ago. Maybe on website only? (not on app)

  14. Improve account recovery with multiple possible answers, or empower support employees to do this with correct info

    Improve account recovery.

    My account was hacked.
    The automated form is very frustrating in that it asks for information, many of which may have multiple possible answers.
    Why can't I say, "birthdate could be one of these possible answers?"
    "address could be one of these addresses"
    Or contact someone in person.

    I have all the purchase invoices for everything I've purchased from Skype over the years, and other information that indicates my account ownership. But the automated form makes it all guesswork, and far too time consuming.

  17. Make Skype available for Chrome OS / Chromebook Users

    I would like to see a Skype App for Chromebook users (Chrome OS). Many students use Chromebooks, and it would be a great way for them to keep in touch.

  18. Import/sync Google contacts

    At a minimum, it should be easy to import Google account contacts. Full synchronization would be great!

    There may be other suggestions here which would include this. Please don't ask the user to search through them to find one.

  19. Change size of layout, smaller contacts

    It would be great if you allow to change size of contacts in the main view because this default are so big and therefore only a few are seeable without scrolling, the size should be like in Messager, Skype Lite, Whatsapp
