  1. sometimes Sync contacts just not work for skype desktop, so please make skype desktop can import contacts list file csv.

    I use skype to contact partners for 8 years, and I always mark each partner a unique nickname to do quick identification each one.
    but yesterday Sync contacts just can't work , I tried many ways to install/uninstall skype, even add some partners one by one, but when I logout and login account, it's still missed.
    this is crazy to miss all contacts which I added for 8 years.

    The skype version of contacts is broken as designed.

  4. Stop spawning empty conversations

    As of the last update, Skype is creating empty conversations for me. Firstly it showed around 20 old conversations from three-way contacts. A friend had a load of old conversations reappear in Skype so he left them, which created them for me as 'R* has left the conversation' conversations with one other person. I deleted the conversations. The other member then got the same conversations appear which he left, again causing them to appear for me. I deleted them again.

    Today they have reappeared for the third time.

    I have no need to have 20 "Untitled" conversations with zero content,…

  6. Multi-Favorites

    It would be nice that in Skype there is the possibility to create various Favorites lists and that these Favorites lists can be named at will. In Skype I have many contacts and with each of them I have a connection based on mutual interest. Example: School, Gym, Beach, etc. I would like that Skype has the possibility to create multi-favorite lists. This option for us users could facilitate the organization of Contacts in Skype.

  7. The abilty to delete all contacts.

    Create the ability to delete the names that appear when opening the search box, "People, groups and messages". The names that appear below are deleted contacts. Why are they still visible?

  9. Verbesserungen für Skype

    Telefonische Unterstützung wäre äußerst hilfreich - auch vor allem deutschsprachig

    E-Mail-Kontakt zu Skype wäre auch mehr als sehr wünschenswert

  16. Contact phone number identifier needs further options

    Contacts phone numbers need additional identifiers rather than just HOME, MOBILE or OFFICE. A user defined option would be ideal.

  17. Mails

    Could you develop a function that would allow a Skype user to be able to ask the system to send an email to a Skype contact to encourage them to log ?

  18. Date of contact request to be visible!

    Currently, when someone sends you a contact request/requests to add you to Skype, there is no date shown and no way to find out when they sent you the request. (Was it months ago, a few days ago etc?)
    I had to contact Support and at first they could only tell me that the request is sent after the first message or call. Great.

    Except in this case, through conversation we established that I had previously removed a person from my contact list, hence we must have accepted each other in the past, making the request I'm seeing now more…

    Just make Skype like it was before Microsoft messed it up!

  20. "invalid number" error message

    I am new to Skype. I have agreed to try Skype with an old friend. After downloading and when trying to enter his number in Contacts I get "invalid number" error message. can I not enter a number if the individual has not yet installed Skype or am I not using the correct format? (format "--xxxx)
