  7. 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.

  8. SENT TEXT lined up on the left side for us non-Arabic people

    Fire the people who constantly remove options from the app.
    Then hire somebody who loved the old app and also know how to code.

    First on the list, let us non-Arab people have our text posted to the LEFT
    in the message window. Typo-checking or speed reading long list of
    messages is a PITA when the the first letters of each line is not lining up.
    Whoever invented lining up the last letters of sentences needs to be "deleted"..

    A slightly different color for sent and received messages was working perfectly.

    Cheers :)

  12. Ver 8.55 the little notification dot on the task bar is inadequate.

    Option to enable something to happen - when I get a skype message

    greatly enlarge the message notification - open the chat window - throw up a big S above the task bar. This problem exists on every coomputer in our company.

  13. Save skype shared files on computer or onedrive instead of deleting from server

    I don't like that shared files are deleted from servers after 30 days. It would be nice for shared files be preserved automatically for users beyond 30 days without having to export a chat. Would it be possible to have these files saved (with a setting) to onedrive automatically or any computer automatically to a user designated storage location?

  16. History chart:

    The chat history month time chart is not working in Skype. Everywhere I click I cannot find it. This is happening with version 8.55.0.141. I have uninstalled and re-installed multiple times and nothing. Can you please fix this?

  20. Последние использованные смайлы

    Добрый день.
    Пользуюсь Скайпом с ноутбука.
    Раньше была возможность видеть последние использованные смайлы. Очень удобно , когда постоянно используешь один набор смайлов.
    Сейчас же каждый раз приходится нужный смайлик находить через поиск, что крайне затрудняет скорость коммуникаций.
    Сможете восстановить эту функцию? В телефоне она реализована и очень удобно. На ноутбуке - нет:((
    Спасибо.
