  1. a skype 7 version download link that works

    so basically you should add skype 7 for people that don't like skype 8, maybe the skype team could try and make a skype version with the same features as skype 8 but with the skype 7 look, y'know the classic look for people who don't want to use skype 8

  5. make skype webcontrol accessible from scratch

    As of now skype web control can just be accessed embeddedly within another bloated site e.G.: outlook.com. This sucks, as you say skype web control is lightwaight, well that would be exactly what I need as I can't just spare a ******* 200 MBytes of RAM for a voicecall, but however, if it works only in conjunction with outlook.com or another bloated site, that defeats the purpose. Please just provide us some simple URL, such as webcontrol.skype.com for example, where we can just simply have skype web control alone!

    Dear Tech team,
    Please make an option so you can set a specific time for dark mode and light mode to turn on automatically for Skype on the phone and PC. Also please include an option to switch to 24 hour time for Skype on the phone and PC. Thanks.

  7. When you have a group it shows how many people are in group but not who is in it. Some of my groups are 6 -8 people how is one to check.

    When you select the group there is an Icon with heads, you should be able to click on it to see who is in group.. When I select it opens up finder.. Maybe a bug... but need to see who is group to add and delete people over time.

  10. More Pride Flags?

    It's awesome to see so many pride flags, and that they're here to stay! But, there are still so many members of the LGBTQ+ Community that can't be represented in such a small sample of flags. Examples of this are the Aromantic flag, and straight ally flag (the straight pride flag is much more negative, and often encourages the opposite of what pride flags aim to, but the ally flag is not like this).

    Would it be possible to see more flags / LGBT inspired emojis in the future?

    Thanks for considering!

  13. Allow ranking of Skype Ideas by number of votes

    When searching if others have complained about the same issue, you give no option to rank the ideas by votes, meaning that votes are spread out over an infinite number of potentially similar demands. This is such an inefficient way of doing things. There should be a better way of returning results, such that people aggregate their votes, meaning they get heard better. Except if you are avoiding that!

  17. disconnects

    My question is: for what reason can all participants of the conference be thrown out (group call by 10 people)? and after reconnecting immediately disconnects all.
