  1. Fix issue - “Join Call” not working for active group calls!

    My church has been using Skype for over a decade to connect people to our classes and services. (And for the last year, everyone has been on it as we went totally virtual!)
    This issue has popped up in the last couple weeks: when we call a group for a class, many do not answer immediately, but rather tap “Join Call” when they are ready.

    PLEASE ADD SUPPORT for Google Assistant to make calls.

Well, cancellation of flight tickets can be overwhelming for some time, but with Aer Lingus, you can cancel your flights without worrying about your refund or fee.

  12. Celebrities on here should be verified legally and have a significant symbol from anyone else's

    All people claiming to be a celebrity has to have a verified and certified tag to go on their account. I have literally had over 100 Keanu Reeves on here and every one of them has hit me up for money or gift cards

  15. I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SETUP A CUSTOMIZED OUTGOING VOICEMAIL MESSAGE OR ELSE I WILL IMMEDIATELY CLOSE MY SKYPE ACCOUNT AND GET A REFUND ISSUE

    IF I AM UNABLE TO SETUP A CUSTOMIZED OUOTGOING VOICEMAIL MESSAGE, I WILL SHUTDOWN MY SKYPE ACCOUNT AND PROCURE A COMPLETE REFUND THROUGH PAYPAL.
    You charge more than SKype ever did (before Microsoft bought them), AND you've limited my functionality.
    I DONT LIKE IT.
    I EXPLECT AN ANSWER ON WHEN THIS WILL BE DONE, OR I'M OUT.

  16. Skype replace phone and message app.


    1. It would be nice to be able to make calls and send sms on the phone without using Skype credit like main phone and messages app on the phone but also be able to use skype subscription on the side for the ones who wants that. I think this will drag people to use skype more.


    2. Be able to link phone Skype to pc to be able to make calls or send sms from pc or other platforms over phone carrier subscription.

  17. Phase out Skype

    Since MS took over Skype, it has become a pain to use. Other more streamlined apps are now light years ahead. Unless MS is prepared to do some work in making it easier to navigate and use, I would suggest phasing it out.

  19. Cannot Verify Server Identity IMAP.Gmail

    This error occurs on iOS devices. This issue does not match the SSL certificate on the mail server and the server settings on your iOS device (iPhone, iPod, etc.)

    First go to the settings in your iphone.

    On settings go to “mail” and click it.

    Here you will find “accounts” click on it.

    Now click on the account on which you are facing problems.

    On “Incoming Mail Server” the Host Name should be mail##.webmailaccess.net.

    Once incoming mail server is added you change the outgoing mail server as well. from “Outgoing Mail Server” you’ll find SMTP and the mail server name…
