  1. Calendar

    It would be great to have a calendar feature so you can see meetings that are scheduled.

  2. Don't prevent Mac from going to sleep

    Skype Helper (Renderer) is preventing sleep on macOS Catalina 10.15.6. I have configured Energy Saver to turn off the screen after 10 minutes, but it never does. When I look at Activity Monitor, I see that the process "Skype Helper (Renderer)" has "Preventing Sleep" set to "Yes". I'm running the latest version of Skype (8.64.0.80) as of this writing. This is clearly a bug; there's no reason for any application to be preventing sleep like this.

  3. I was once able to separate my paragraphs with some empty space, but not anymore. Spaces between paragraphs makes it easier to read.

    Imaging reading a letter with continuous text, line by line with no spaces for new paragraphs. It sucks! Which is why I would love to see this as an option, at the very least, so long messages would be easier to read.

  5. Add the ability to add stories on Skype

    If skype had stories I wouldn't go to Snapchat it will take my attention watching everyone's stories and also show your status

  6. Sort Skype Ideas

    Sort Skype ideas by current votes (highest to lowest) as similar problems with less votes are getting votes, while those with the higher number of votes are missing out. This brings the average number of votes for similar issues/ideas down, while people may see the higher ranked idea and vote for that, bringing the idea to the fore.
    Or, at least give a sort option so people can decide their view.

  8. Disable Video calling feature

    My idea is to disable the video feature in b/w the persons who are not connected with each other.
    This will help to stop the spreading of abusive and sexsually content.

    Thanks
