    Hej!

    I use the latest version of Mac OS 10.14 Mojave and Skype 8 for Mac. The problem still exists in the latest Preview Version of Skype for Mac.

    Symptoms:
    1. Skype crashes and automatically restarts at intervals of around 3-10 minutes.
    2. Skype is very slow in scrolling and entering text.
    3. When Skype us running it uses all available CPU making the fans on my MacBook Pro run at maximum speed.

    The problem has existed since the release of Mojave. I have tried a number of ways of fixing it, including reinstalling from scratch while removing all preferences…

  3. Why can I not delete my conversations and calls from my Ipad Skype. We need a task bar

    Why can we not delete conversations from the Ipad Skype. We could always before. We had a tool bar that we could use. Since you took over Skype, it SUCKS big time. It is such a difficult app to use. Definitely NOT user friendly. We need a tool bar to perform all the things that we did before, before you messed things up.

  4. Able to copy message and call logs into other formats for records

    Dear Skype,
    i used to be able to cut and paste the conversations and call information for each person with their name and mine on each entry and the date and time to display in records for work - clinical medicine with patients, or business meeting notes with business calls, the specifics or call, duration, attempted call and time, etc.
    the new version does not allow this anymore, can you look at returning this very useful feature please as other services have it and it is needed for clinical records, and i'd like to keep using skype, but need this…

  5. Skype 7 features most important for Skype 8.

    Just a few of the features I feel need to come to Skype 8 from Skype 7 for me to want to use it, from the perspective of someone who mostly texts chats.

    -MOST IMPORTANT: Ability to defer your update wave to Skype 8 until the features you wish to see are implemented. This was discussed by the previous design director, Peter Skillman, and is a fantastic idea.

    -Ability to disable automatic updates.
    -Ability to disable advanced text formatting options like bold or italics.
    -Ability to resize the chat and contact sidebar (My personal golden area is 650-ish total window…

  9. Make Skype available for Chrome OS / Chromebook Users

    I would like to see a Skype App for Chromebook users (Chrome OS). Many students use Chromebooks, and it would be a great way for them to keep in touch.

  13. Allow blocking of numbers using wildcards. I.e., block from a particular area code or exchange code.

    Allow blocking of (or allow) numbers using wildcards. I.e., block from a particular area code or exchange code. Thus stopping calls where only the last like 4 digits change but the calls are from the same place.

  20. X button should minimize

    When Skype is closed by pressing the "x" button, it's not minimized on the task bar, it disappears completely and if push up notifications are closed, you don't know when you received a message. The old Skype had this feature working.
