  5. Click the top left X to be shown that I'm offline !

    I would like to have the feature when I click on the top left X so it turns of so others can see I'm off. Cause once I'm on my laptop people can still see I'm on just away. When I click the X others see I'm offline. Though I'm still online accept I'm doing other things like work. So when I sign in it's green when I click the X then it shows I'm offline ! In invisible mode people can still see that and they know I'm online.

  6. Please add an option to call in. And at least make the chat option easier... It's like breaking into Fort Knox to get a hold of someone help

    How about a call option to call in for support... or at least make the chat more accessible. I spent 20 minutes clicking around before even getting to WAIT IN LINE to chat with someone... Horrible horrible horrible support, Skype... Get it together!

  7. don't charge another connection fee every new minute...

    Do not charge a connection fee for every minute a call is connected. That is a gratuitous and sneaky way to make more money that does not seem to be very obvious. In some cases, this triples the cost of a call!
    A connection fee is to connect a call. Once it is connected, there should be no reason to continue charging this extra rate.

  9. When activating Skype window immiediately type in "type message" field

    It's often the case I activate the window, type and it turns out there is no text written. If the last area to be typed in, was the message area go back with the cursor there.

  10. The ability to switch default browser

    Please provide the ability to change default browser for opening links(hyperlinks), because for now I can't switch it from Firefox to Chrome. (I'm using the Ubuntu OS, and I bet Skype app sets browser similar to default system, but I have changed it after installation of Skype, so as user I want to be able to change default browser for Skype as well as for System)

  12. Block a person

    How about making it possible to block a person you have communicated with?? WHY does it have to be so difficult? We find NO option to do that.

  14. My idea, is to do what snapchat does, allow a photo to be deleted after viewing or options for it to be viewed in 24hrs.

    Sometimes you post a video or a photo but here u have option to delete but the other party still sees it. Which defeats the purpose of deleting. Maybe having an option to delete photos/videos post in a chat on both sides of the party received, or allow the other recipient to view it for 24hrs or option to delete photos/video after viewing. It would make for a more secure site as well, so if ever hacked, no one has access to those things as well.

  19. No need for the new version of Skype

    The new version of Skype is a disaster. Please return the older version. This is not the future!!!!
