  1. Organize chats on the sidebar

    When managing a large number of chats/chat groups, it would be handy to be able to organize them on the sidebar, by creating new tags (besides 'favorites')

    Thanks

  2. Skype for free teachers

    Здравствуйте! Я репетитор иностранного языка и хотела бы заниматься по скайпу. Подскажите, есть ли такие возможности, что бы ученики, не только видели мой экран, но и сами могли на нем работать? а так же объединяться в мини-группы/пары (для составления диалогов, например) внутри одного звонка, таким образом, чтобы другие учащиеся не слышали их обсуждений, а я в свою очередь могла заходить и контролировать процесс выполнения задания?

    Если такие функции есть, что нужно для этого сделать? Что купить? Что скачать?

    Спасибо!

  3. Elective Updating.

    The UPDATING AUTOMATICALLY IN THE BACKGROUND is and always has been a lie. When "automatic updating" kicks in... downloads etc... it stops my computer to a bare crawl. I mean... you think the ISP has shut down. Can't tell you how many times I am doing something using high processor resources... CPU... and this kicks in ... because they update this pig EVERY WEEK. So... make the updates and downloading of updates... AT MY SCHEDULE, AT MY LEISURE... so I can do it when I am NOT using the computer at all. AND I HAVE A QUAD CORE computer with…

  4. Throw Skype 8 into the trash

    Literally any other chat client I ever had the pleasure of dealing with somehow runs significantly faster than Skype, and previous versions of Skype used to be on par.

    But apparently C++ is a privilege of the past and nowadays cross-platform development is more important than having your program not lag immensely on medium-end mobile devices.

    First of all, thank you for returning SplitView mode. It surely took you some time. Now could you please make contact window snap to screen edges (just as it WAS in good old skype). Thank you.

  6. Split screen not availbale on "Skype for Windows 10 8.51.0.86."

    Yesterday, I have updated the Skype to the latest version: Skype for Windows 10 8.51.0.86.

    I have checked the release notes here: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/fa34778/release-notes-for-skype-for-windows-mac-linux-and-web

    The latest version documented here as of today is: Skype for Windows 10 8.51.0.72
    - where the split-screen is introduced for the desktop version.

    Despite having the latest version than what is documented on the site, I am unable to see the options to enable Split-screen.

    I always see the latest features only after 2 or 3 days of updating the app.

    Why is this happening? if this is an app-cache issue, why do we need to…

  9. Sync my phone,laptop and Skype

    Synchronize Skype with regular phone features.

    I should be able to select who can I call with my mobile subscription / skype and cannot. Then if I cannot, Skype offers me a deal on calling them through Skype Out.

    For SMS, it would check if the user have skype, if not send it either my sms or my skype credits.

    On laptop, I should be able to remotely text, call anyone using skype and remotely control my phone for sms messages.

  12. Put ALL calls on recent calls list even when computer is shut down

    When not answered on Skype, calls forward to cell phone. But those calls are not added to the recent calls list when the computer is shut down. Even if computer/Skype is shut down, we need to see ALL attempted incoming calls on the recent calls list. Skype is our central call center, because we cannot use our cell phones at home because there is no signal here. We can only use the cell phones when in town. Thus, we need all incoming Skype calls to show on the recent calls list, no matter if they were answered, forwarded, and whether…

  19. Skype for PS4 users

    Hi, I wanted to suggest making Skype available to PS4 users. I noticed that for Xbox One console gamers, Skype is on that, but not on the PS4. I would ask kindly to please consider partnering with PS4 to make an app available to them to use Skype. Call it "Skype Lite" if you have to.

  20. rates

    Looking at your rates, I cannot help but wonder why your rates for phone calls to Sri Lanka are so high. This is, for example, compared to neighbouring countries such as India. A comparison (rates taken from your website 11 Aug 2019):

    India
    1,3 cents p/m
    10 Euro: 800 mins
    800 mins monthly: 9,23 Euro per month

    Sri Lanka:
    15,5 cents per minute
    10 Euro: 70 minutes
    200 minutes monthly: 22,14 Euro per month

    The difference is outrageous. Please lower your rates for Sri Lanka.
