  1. I would like to have a few different options for message notification sound

    Would like options for different notification sounds. Current notification sound so quiet that I can barely hear it with my volume all the way up. Would like to see sound options so I could use louder tone

  4. Skype Chat Commands

    In the early versions of Skype, such teams worked in chats, which are presented on this site

    http://www.skaip.su/komandy-v-chate-skayp

    It was possible to assign separate roles to different chat participants, delete messages of the interlocutor, and so on. These features are currently not available. Can they be returned back?

  14. Please make it so that you can use a Skype number to receive texts from apps

    I am a US citizen currently living in Colombia on assignment for the next two years. I have an iPad Pro and no phone.

    This setup works fine most of the time, (approximately 99.9% of the time or more,) but sometimes I get a new app that requires a text authentication message to be sent to me for verification purposes. Since I have no phone, this is a serious deficiency. Also, sometimes I need to receive a text for other 2-factor-identification purposes, (banking, Google, and such,) and Skype is not useful for this either.

    Please amend this deficiency that is…

  16. Enable all languages for translation of written messages that the translator bot offered! You took away all but 11 languages!

    I don't see a reason why the bot could translate way more written languages than translated conversations now can (in written form).
    We used the bot for 6 months, now you simply took away any possibility to translate English - Vietnamese without alternative.
    And you provide a false hint on top suggesting that translated conversations would actually be a viable alternative!

  19. Apply color options to message callouts /bubbles in group conversations

    Skype is widely used for the group conversation in organizations Some time some important messages comes and we miss it as all our conversations callouts are in the same colors. Can we add an option to apply colors to message callouts like if I wrote "Our internal server is down, Please handle it" I can apply a red kinda color to the message call out and send so that all will not miss it.
