  1. Controllable Volume and Choosable sound from a file on my computer for Notification of New SMS Messages received

    I have a hard time knowing when I receive a SMS message from a contact. It would be great if I could choose from a file on my computer, a sound byte to notify me of a new message, and have the ability to control sound volume. Also, the ability to actuate a Popup Notice would also be good as part of this Control Feature for Notification of Messages.

  5. See rescinded invitations

    There are lots of spammers out there. I get 4 to 5 unsolicited chats per day. The spammers have become smarter and withdraw their invitations quickly if you do not respond immediately. It would be an effective anti-spam tool to be able to see who has invited you to chat and to be able to flag that invitation as legitimate or as spam. We have a list of blocked contacts. The withdrawn invitations could be listed there, too.

  7. Enable/Disable Setting of Auto Showing Last Text

    There should have a setting of showing last chat text, like while I opened my Skype it showing all contact list and their associate last text which I have sent/received, which is very embarrassing while I opened my Skype in-front of other peoples, like colleague, friends etc.

  9. reference number 1492684516. Don't allow to mark messages as spam if people are in the contact list

    reference number 1492684516. I think one of your functions are very wrong. It's when you right clicking on the message and you choose "complain". Like unwanted message or spam. The point is I use Skype because people I have in my skype contacts always receive my messages. That's why I use skype in the first place instead of emails where my messages can be marked as spam. But now some hater in my contacts simply can mark my message as spam and nobody will receive my messages. You should make it like this: We can send messages to people who…

  13. Possibility to change the language of the answering machine.

    The answering machine automatically responds in English ... Make it possible to put it in French if you don't have to dial our own answering machine.

  15. Remove from all group

    Add new feature to show person added in multiple groups, Jus like WhatsApp provide on view person show all group associated with me.

    so, if we want to remove than no need to find where we added him and remove him one by one.

  20. Spell checker Feature

    I would like to know if it's possible to add a spell checker on Skype with an add on from Skype or with a 3rd party program that works on Skype as well. I have a spell checker on Chrome but obviously, it doesn't apply on Skype as well and I can't see my grammar mistakes there.
