  1. a male superhero emoticon

    dear skype team! please, provide a male superhero emoticon. I am so lucky to work with a great guy and there is no possibility to say how cool he is with emoticon. Be sure, I am not the only one who is suffering without a superhero in skype

  2. For the love of god, I don't want much, just please make an option to disable automatic text formating

    For the love of god, I'm not asking for much, but please just add a feature to disable automatic text formatting or me and my friends are moving to Discord.

    I'm not asking for a whole * of a lot, just for the love of god, if I wrap something in s like this, I don't want it to be BOLD.

    Please?

  3. LET's MAKE SKYPE WORK AGAIN . Good idea ?????????

    Once again SKYPE have upgraded their systems and it DOESN'T WORK !!!!!!!! Why why why why do they do it over and over again and prevent seniors and those on a low income from chatting any more? I certainly don't have £1000 to upgrade my PC from win XP. It worked fine Monday. Not upgrade to our new version and guess what ................ IT WON'T WORK. What an achievement, and they are paid vasts amount of money to do this.
    Rule #1 - If it ain't broken then it don't need fixing !!!!!!

  4. Android. Sending messages in the background

    All porgrams have an opportunity to accept and send messages in the background
    1) Why doesn’t skype tell me that a message cannot be sent because there is no Internet?
    2) why the message is not sent when the skype is closed and has access to the Internet? The process in the background does not want to do anything. slacker!


    Skype через мобильный интернет не отправил сообщение. и после в течении 12 часов так и не отправил его хотя был подключен к интернету и даже вайфаю. После я открыл приложение и сообщение только только отправилось.
    1)У всех месенжеров есть возможность…

  5. Keeping the box "Removed", when you delete a message.

    As a company we use Skype and do not allow private messages as these have previously been found to be Victimisation of other employees. Now we are unable to see if someone has deleted one of these messages.

  7. Long press to preview emoji animation from the emoji picker

    Problem: On mobile, all the Emoticons are static and can be miss understood.

    Solution: Add the ability to view the emoticons before it's sent. I recommend the ability to view the animated emotional by long pressing the target emoticon from the emoticons picker

  8. chat input field focused all the time

    I should be able to type the reply without clicking.
    Now to type text, you have to click the area 1/3 of input field size, it's hard.

    Telegram behavior can be used as a template.

  9. When searching for someone in contacts, as soon as you message them, the search results should not be cleared.

    When searching for someone in contacts, as soon as you message them, the search results are cleared. This should not happen. The search results should show on screen until the user cancels the search.

  10. group chat and friends list open at the same time

    It's annoying having to deal with looking at either your friends list or having to open your group chat on the left side of the call, because you can't do both at the same time! In earlier versions of skype, you could have your chat open at the bottom, while being able to look at recent conversations on the left, which made it easy to switch from conversation to conversation, in one button press. Now it's confusing, and you have to hover over the call, press the button just to open your contacts/recent chats, and then you can find other…

  11. On Chrome OS, Enter should send, shift+enter should start a new line

    The Skype Android app works great on Chrome OS, except you are forced to use the mouse to hit the send button instead of hitting enter on the keyboard. Hitting enter goes to a new line. Enter should send. Hitting shift+enter should do a line break.

  13. Images

    I have a simple question. Have'nt you guessed how important it is for users that the picture in Skype opens in its original size? Well, if this is a surprise for you?
    You didn't even give me the opportunity to do it by myself.
    If you dont have skills for this? use at least a standard windows viewer. What are my ideas for skype? Well, make at least standard things, nessesary tools

  14. Permissions\Ranks

    (Like discord) Skype should have a ranking system, so if I set myself to an admin of a group chat, I can't be kicked from it. (Or at least if I created it)

  19. image/file review

    Hi, whenever we are dropping some image or file in skype then it posts directly.

    So it should show preview than ask confirmation to send.

    web.whatspapp.com use the same thing and we love it.

    sometimes we choose the wrong file and we never get a chance to review it.

    So preview is better than send only.
