  2. There should be an option to choose your ringtone

    Hello Skype Team if you are reading this, so there should be an option to choose a ringtone you can like, you can choose Skype premade sounds, or you can upload a sound, the default one should be the 2019 Skype Ringtone. You can find a ringtone changing option in settings in skype, the very bottom is where you can find the option, and I think you can make the ringtone changer support .ogg, .mp3, .mus, and a new file option, .skypesound.

  4. Make an option to scan the files you want to download in Skype from a Skype scanner

    After you click accept in Skype to download a file, make a virus scan called Skype Scanner to make sure the file doesn't have any harm, so you can be 100% complete safe, and make it an advanced scan so you make sure Skype is positive that you are 100% safe.

  7. Please let us turn off the blinking notification.

    I would like to turn the blinking off when I get a new message. I am already alerted by a sound. If I would like to turn sound off and blinking back on then that should be an option too. Please allow us to turn the blinking off!

  18. This system for taking feedback clearly communicates that microsoft is not serious

    Rather than actually serving customers, microsoft support staff provide them with a link to this 'ideas' page so that they can suggest the OBVIOUS. Microsoft is not actually interested. It could not be more clear.

  19. Can you add a mic and speaker device selection options to the Mobile app on Android and iOS?

    It would be great if we can change the microphone and speaker selection on the mobile app just as it's available on the desktop version.

  20. Add a thumbs up button

    Create an independent thumbs up button for easy "thumbs upping". I dislike having to find it in the emoji list. This is similar to Facebook message - sometimes I don't want to respond, I just want to say "ok, great...awesome" by giving a thumbs up.
