  2. Microsoft sure knows how to destroy a wet dream. SKYPE before Microsoft took it over worked seamlessly and the features were 100% practical.

    Microsoft sure knows how to destroy a wet dream. SKYPE before Microsoft took it over worked seamlessly and the features were 100% practical.

    What did Microsoft strip out?


    1. No longer could you leave a personalized voice-mail message;


    2. No longer could you set your ring to one sound device (external speaker) and listen through another sound device (your headset). So on each call, now you have to switch back and forth, and make sure you leave the speaker on the external when you end each call, or you will never hear the ring of a new call;


    3. No longer can you…

  3. Identity: One ID as Proxy for another ID

    I should be able to give another account authorization to act on my account's behalf. Messaging, calling, contact management, payments, everything.

    Options for full disclosure ("George skyping for Mary"), partial ("an authorized delegate skyping for May"), and no disclosure.

    Contexts:


    • A lawyer should be able to log in as herself and act on behalf of a client's account.


    • A parent for a minor child.


    • An adult child for a parent with dementia.


    • One employee (signed in as themself) for a corporate account.


    • A friend for a friend on vacation.


    • A bot for a user.

  4. The screen will not be split into two halves

    Hi Skype, please promptly fix the bug in the latest version of skype for mobiles. The screen will not be split into two halves during a video call (I'm on one half of the screen and my other friend) It's bad and impractical, I can not see how I look. Please make a quick fix. Well thank you.

  5. Simplify login!

    Simplify login!
    1. In ver. 8 when you log in you got a “welcome /splash screen” that don’t do anything, now I have to go to 3 windows just to log in should be one! Pretty please, remove it!
    2. Make skype remember my “live” account like it does with my Skype account (I got a dropdown list with the Skype account’s I used on a PC, but not the “live” accounts, it would be really convenient if it remembered the LOOOONG :) “live” account , not just the short Skype accounts) It would make switching between accounts easier, and/or…

  7. Skype 安全性太差,连最基本的安全锁都没有,如果电脑手机丢失,Skype 里面的联系人信息与其他用户隐私数据与完全公开没什么两样,你们连最基本的用户隐私安全都不能保障,是不是有点说不过去啊?

    建议增加 PIN 码

    你们这收集建议里面强制收集用户信息就不合理,虽然你们写了“可以随时退出”,但是数据已经收集过去了,我还能自己从你们的数据库里面删掉吗?电子邮箱可以给你,姓名和IP地址让人很不舒服,本身电子邮箱就可以确认一个人的身份了,你们还要求那么多,是不是不合适呢?

  10. Delete skype account without the closure of ones Microsoft account

    I want to be able to completely delete skype and remove it from my microsoft account.
    Being forced to have a skype account is the single biggest reason why I hate and avoid microsoft web services, and why I'm constantly recommending friends and colleagues to avoid using microsoft services and move to google services instead.
    I hate my skype account and that I'm forced to have a skype icon in my microsoft account, that I have a stupid horrible and ugly skype username that does not match my microsoft account email, and how everytime I opened outlook there was a…

  12. Signing in with an email that has an associated SfB account should redirect users to the right app

    Right now, if a user downloads "Skype for Personal Use" and tries to log in with a corporate account, they simply get told they don't have an account.

    Due to confusing naming, they may be trying to access a corporate SfB account using the wrong client. Rather than simply failing to find a "Windows Live" account and suggesting account creation, Skype should do the same discovery as SfB, and if it finds an SfB server, it should additionally direct the user to whichever client is appropriate.

  13. You should combine Skype regular and Skype business

    It is really time to combine Skype for consumer and Skype business.
    Most people end up using both although rarely and 2 extremely similar apps should be combined
    It is stupid that you have to have 2 apps which do pretty much everything the same all you need to unlock the business features is to add a second login a count from a work or school
