  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  7. 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?

  11. 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.

  13. More options. Stop buffering. This is worst chat site for texting.

  14. Timestamps

    When I'm in a chat or call or video with someone, I would like timestamps to show for both my time zone and theirs. Fiverr does this and it's a really nice feature. Also, helps you know when another party might be available.

  15. Emoji Icons

    Allow For Emoji Icons To Be Disabled. This use to be a feature in Classic Skype. Not sure why this was eliminated. Thanks.

  16. The sms feature puts "+1" in front of my # somy friend's phones can't recognize my number & name.

    The sms feature puts "+1" in front of my # so that my friend's phones can't recognize my number & name. No one recognizes me by my 10 digit number. Eliminate the +1 and then my local friends can see my name on their phones.

  19. OK, please CHARGE us for old chat messages that are lost now.

    Microsoft, please, you do still have them??? You can charge us any amount. Although it was not nice of you to SILENTLY start letting old chat messages disappearing. In email apps only ancient aol, I remember, was that bad, and only at first.

  20. Search

    Hello. Our organization (300 people) actively uses Skype, respectively, several group chats of 300 people have been created. And during the working day we are very actively exchanging messages in the chat, I think about 1,500 can have more messages per day in each of the chats. Earlier (in version 7 of Skype) we used the function to notify if there is a match with a word. Those. we turned off chat notifications, and turned on the notify function if there is a match with a word (in particular, everyone wrote their last name). Now, unfortunately, this function is not,…
