  1. Hide Contacts That Have Not Shared Details With You!!

    In the old Skype it was better. You could hide the contacts who have not shared their details with you. Now we have all the contacts visible. This new version is a mess. I suggest that we have an option to hide the contacts who have not shared details with us.

  8. Non-Contacts shouldn't show up in skype search directory initially

    The people who have been previously messaged but are now no longer contacts should not come up first on the list when searching for people on skype.

  10. Make groups in skype easier

    Could not be made clearer to make groups? in the likings of Skype for business. In the regular Skype app its nit really clear how to do that. But would be easy for groups that regularly coverse over skype together. Non business related.

  11. Call Contact Shortcut

    Create file based shortcut for calling certain contacts. So hotkeys can be used to call someone or a group. Hit programmable key on keyboard to call friend/group, rather than to simply run skype. Save time.

  13. PLEASE IMPROVE SUPPORT/HELP. IT IS FRUSTRATING AND DIFFICULT

    I have spent two hours trying to update credit card details for autorecharge and have no indication as to whether I have been successful in so doing..... Why not have a way of courteously advising that one has completed successfully.

  14. Optional setting to turn off search suggestions of past contacts

    A setting that removes suggestions of removed contacts when searching up new contacts. Personally when i remove a contact I would not like to see them in any part of my account, so an optional feature that disables the suggestion of past contacts would be much appreciated. (Yes, they people could still be added, but it would be as if they were being added for the first time.) I am aware my wording is probably confusing, just email me if more clarification is needed about the suggestion.

  15. Deleting names in the Search/suggestion window in New Chat or people search

    When I type anything in the search bar in New Chat I get several names under people. I also get several names under people search on the home page. These names are of people who i may have contacted long time but I am not able to delete their names from the search/suggestion window. AND I DO NOT WANT TO BLOCK THESE PEOPLE. JUST WANT TO CLEAN UP THESE OLD NAMES WITHOUT BLOCKING THEM. I WAS ABLE TO DLETE THESE NAMES UNDER THE OLDER VERSION OF SKYPE UNDER THE PRIVACY TAB, BUT NOT ABLE TO DO SO IN THE NEWER…

    I need a 1800 number as when I call you via Skype you put me on hold for two hours so it takes up all my Skype credit, and if I call on my Telstra phone they charge seven dollars a minute for 13 numbers, you have blocked my email address and I’m unable to login - you are absolutely hopeless.
