Add the ability to customize different types of notifications and its settings for calling/receiving/IM, ringtones, volume, online/offline..
possibility to modify sounds and notifications like in Skype 7
- startup and quit sound
- ringtones (in/out coming)
- when somebody goes online/offline
- ability to disable all notifications
- notification even when active
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
Looking for alternatives to Skype. It's been over a year and you have not fixed the sound problems. Microsoft is no good.
What you wait to add this feature ???????

it's 2019. It's *mind-boggling* that this is still not possible to do.
More than one year later nothing happend. So poor.
You say you're working on the ringtone issues. Not fast enough, IMO. The ringtone functionality is pretty awful, and every time I hear that ringtone I'm a little bit afraid my head is going to explode.

Please fix this. You've been working on it for Almost a year now Petr. How hard is it? You had it in there once you can put it in again.
Michael Malpass commented
Just do it, soon!

Microsoft should publish a white paper on this, it would be nice for academics and students to know what went through the mind of people to remove this feature, this single move have potential of disastrous failure of the product itself if some other company can cash on it. Market monopoly was one of the background theme of such unanimous and arrogant decision making, or something else.
Take more pride in Skype and deliver a decent product instead of removing features, seeing who complains, then tallying votes to see what to bring back.
Our lives are not an A/B test for God's sake.
Bring voicemail greetings back as well. Does Microsoft really need to kill everything it touches?
So far, the answer is yes. What a bummer.
Almost all current applications and devices have customizable sounds and ringtones. Previous versions of Skype had this functionality too, but for some silly reason somebody in their wisdom decided to eliminate this functionality. Please return to the 21st century and enable customizable ringtones and individual rintones per contact as soon as possible. Skype was great in the past, but is getting worse and worse with each "upgrade". Please make Skype great and user friendly again.
can't even mute the ringtone without mute my whole system... impossible lol.

Save my ears commented
I have hearing problems and to make my life easy, I have custom volume settings for several applications with the volume mixer. Skype's ringtone is LOUD. I can't just custom lower Skype's volume in anticipation of a call, because as soon as a call starts, the call is then too quiet, and I need to raise the volume. I'm stuck between a joltingly loud noise every time I get a call, or having to raise and lower the volume every time I want to have a conversation. I really need the option to turn off, change, or change the volume of the ringtone only. This is a desperately needed feature. Please. :(
If Skype does not give us options to change the sounds, I will be switching to a different app. I am tired of hearing video game music every time I make or receive a call. I want to communicate, not play Mario Cart.
Customizable sounds for receiving messages, current one is very hard to hear.
Option for classic skype notification sounds
Marilyn Tangye Butler commented
Agree but I dont get any sounds at all even though mine are enabled and my volume is turned on. Totally annoying

Vikas Madan commented
Hv option to select custom notification sound or even custom notification sound per contact for message. This is basic feature and Skype lack of this earlier also asked for this feature but not added still many year now asking for this.
