  2. Raspberry Pi version for Raspbian Stretch compiled for the 64-bit ARM architecture.

    Provide a Raspbian Stretch (variation on Debian) compiled for 64-bit ARM CPUs. There are already 25 million Raspberry *** in circulation and use. I have switched to that as my primary development platform.

  4. Logging out of skype erases all the settings

    When I use Skype (current version 8.42.0.60, app version 14.42.60.0), I log in, make the calls, log out and close the program. Why has it been made so stupid that it forgets ALL the settings and I need to implement them from the beginning next time I use it, over and over, from necessary equipment to visual appearance?

    If MS has any decency left, don't show sympathy, small talk, make excuses etc., but take action and take care of the problem, otherwise this is just another nail in the coffin the corp. just being to fat to diet and not…

  5. video screen is broken

    I am using Galaxy Note 4 and Skype version is 8.45.
    I can not make video calls after updating Skype 8.45.

    This is because my friend's video screen is broken.

    I went to the Samsung service center and was diagnosed that there was no problem with the device.

    I deleted and reinstalled the default app. However, you can not make video calls due to the same issue.

    help.

  6. voting

    I cannot find anywhere that Skpe features - specifically, voting - are listed by Skype product (free Vs. cost). Is voting included in the free version?

  10. Similar to Snapchats new feature you should add a spot where anything shared (such as links, photos, and audio) can be easily accessed.

    Similar to Snapchats new feature you should add a spot where anything shared (such as links, photos, and audio) can be easily accessed. Like have a tab in the chat where you can look at everything sent of that manner. Maybe even saved messaged that are important.

    Hi :) Thank you for your feedback!
    This is a Skype Gallery feature that helps you easily retrieve shared content including media, links, and files. The Gallery pane displays all shared content from the beginning of the chat, so you can quickly find a picture you shared weeks ago, or a link sent to you in the chat. Just click Gallery under the chat name :)

    - Petr

  15. Removing account(s) from login screen of "Skype For Desktop" app on Mac

    There should be a feature of removing account(s) from login screen of "Skype for Desktop" app on Mac.
    Not sure why a popular app like Skype(from a tech giant like Microsort) does not have this feature.

  18. Seeing (as well as exporting) the history in sequence of occurrence across all contacts.

    Being a primary way of communicating to clients, the history in Skype, including phone call duration, is important for being able to bill my clients.

    That is about the absolute single aspect that will make it worth while for me and I assume most consultants in the industry, to continue with Skype.

    It is terribly important for success in my kind of business.

    Currently, the lack of ability is a super frustrating and disabling factor.

  19. Need log in on multiple devices at same time and Voice mail option for Skype number on Cell phones done

    I wanted to use Skype number for business on my phone but it didn't give me the option for Voice mail if I'm unable to attend also it restricts multiple logins hence if I'm working on my desktop at the office I have to ensure I have logged out from my home laptop or Cellphone App.

  20. A simple switch to enable or disable SMS.

    A simple switch to enable or disable SMS would be useful for those that prefer not to use SMS with Skype.
