  1. Option to turn off automatic @ mentions when names are typed in messages

    The new automatic addition of an @ in front of people's names whenever you type them in a message is incredibly annoying. Every time I type "Hi John" Skype seems to think that what I actually wanted to do was type "Hi @John". Can we please have the option to turn this insanely silly new feature off?

  2. To block harrassment contacting by certain pattern in setting...

    I have installed Skype on my mobile (Android) and laptop (Linux).
    But I have been bombarded/harrassed 10-50 times everyday from some people (most of them are Chinese) asking to be my new contact. They are selling agents, gambling gangsters, with msg title:
    "live:.cid xxxx".

    Can you add a new funciton / setting to BLOCK this type of harrassment?

    For example: block any msg containing "live:.cid", block ip address starting "xxx.xx.", block msg containing certain language, block msg from a country, ....

    At least, add a function to all the user to do multi-selection of msgs for deletion, reporting, ...

  8. Link to Azure Devops - Work Items

    Maybe via messages part or add in "My Tasks" feature, or open on Skype windows the details about specific work items rather than opening separately in browser

  9. Reorder emoji in "React to this message" option

    Dear Skype Developers,

    Please implement functionality that I can reorder emojis under "React to this message" option. I do not want to add them or delete them. Just want to reorder them, so the ones that I use most are on the first "page". I added few of them and they are added at the end of the list, and I have to click several times to the right scroll button/arrow to get to them. That is annoying every time.

    Regards,
    Nemanja

  12. Allow floating window for CHAT, for DEAF people or DEAF+INTERPRETER couple. With the current system I CAN'T see my deaf user hands properly.

    When I am in a class of zoom and I need to open skype cause deaf user-pupil cannot or don't want to use zoom because of the many windows , I manage to do it, but when it is time to CHAT with this person, or I have to write to hime some long sentence or explanation of the teacher, I suddenly stop viewing half face and hands of him. This is VERY annoying.

    Is it so difficult to get a floating chat window? to put it wherever I want in my screen? and reduce size etc?

    Thanks

    I suggest that paid services have access to a person for help. The level of service went from very bad to non-existent. I just want a test SMS sent to me.

  19. Leave Message

    Users should have an option to set up auto-reply message, when they are away from Skype. It should work like auto-reply mail. User should be able to enable it by writing his/her message whenever it is required.

  20. Real time texting

    A feature that allows for real time texting, i.e. the receiver sees what the sender is typing in real time without pressing the send button, is a major improvement in real time communication. This is a service that has become compulsory for all new phones, and it would be a great feature on Skype. It would be a highly attractive feature for the hard of hearing/speech impaired community, which would be more inclined to use Skype. Many thanks for your consideration.
