Some of the most consistent feedback we’ve received from you has to do with sounds and how you are notified about the goings on in Skype 8. We understand that all of these things are important for you and we are working on it.
Thank you for your patience
I suggest you put back the sound notification for text messages that come in. Infuriated about Skype taking that option away!

Bring back the yellow message notification so that we don't have to open and check Skype every time.
The yellow message notification was useful so that one doesn't have to keep opening Skype unless necessary.

In a new Skype there is an option to Notify about new messages only when user is mentioned in chat. It used to be an option to actually use certain words to trigger notifications. It's very welcome in large chat rooms with many participants.30 votes
in the new skype there is no visual notification anymore (the yellow one for instance). We need it back.29 votes

Please bring back sound notifications for new messages in the current open chat. I am visually impaired person and I use screen reader to work with the Skype. Wile ordinary people can see the new messages in the open chat straight after they come up, the low vision/blind users need to scroll up through the chat window in order to read new message. Consequently it is very easy to miss the new message in the current conversation. For example, while I am typing, a new message arrives but, without sound notification, I am unable to figure it out and only when I send my message and scroll up through the conversation I can notice that there is unread message. In the old versions of Skype there was a possibility to set up this feature and it was optional so it would be extremely useful if you could bring it back. Many thanks in advance.

Bring back custom notifications!! I need to see when I get a message but I do NOT want or need to see a preview.24 votes
On Android, Skype notifications show only the most recent message.
Skype Lite notifications show a message history.
Please see this screenshot to illustrate: http://bit.ly/2OsjevO
Message history is the superior type of notification because you can read a conversation from the lock screen.
It would be great if Skype & Skype Preview had message history type notifications.24 votes

Please bring back the notification in the Task Bar where the icon turns orange and flashes when receiving new messages. You had it in the old version and it was by far the most useful feature of SKYPE.19 votes

It would be nice to have the ability to change the notification sound for an incoming message on the Skype APP. It is hard to hear the low blip that we get now for an incoming message so it would be nice to be able to do custom sounds18 votes
The classic Skype version hat a visual and audio notification when someone went online or offline. Now I see you brought back at least the online notification, but can you bring both notifications back when someone goes ONLINE AND also the OFFLINE and also with SOUND?? then the new skype woule be nearly as good as the old one!
Hi. A large part of the world will be moving to remote work in the following months. Working via Skype makes us safe, but it could make us even safer with a simple feature. We all know that face touching can spread viruses, and we touch our faces during long conference calls all the time. What If Skype would detect the moments of unconscious touches and give us a small notice to stop. This would greatly improve our bad habits and keep us all safer during the coronavirus outbreak.
We made a short video about this feature. Be safe.
I recommend Skype to restore the feature for notification that is DO NOT show a preview banner at the right corner and keep the sound when having a notification or separate those options. Currently, when I turn off "Chat Notification", I can't hear the sound when having a notification, but if I turn on "Chat Notification", a banner shows at the right corner with chat content. It's really inconvenient function.17 votes
