  1. Let us Delete / Link / Disconnet / Edit / Opt in / Opt Out for our Skype ID from our Microsoft Profile

    Tthe Microsoft procedure with creating new Skype ID is really bad.
    I had a already linked to my Microsoft's email a Skype ID and instead after submitting a new year license (a family pack) Microsoft decided to create a new (with a extremely silly name). Now this newly created will benefit of the perks which I pay for in the yearly charge. It is not fair.
    I needed that new ID deleted but not to delete my Microsoft profle (as it is using the same email address , and same my old SKype ID!). Also Microsoft should allow us to…

  2. Bigger subcriptions

    Skype should make larger subscriptions for calling to Bolivia. Like 400 minutes to mobile phones.

  3. Adding more minutes to the subscription when users run out of minutes during subscription time

    Can you guys please allow users to be able to add more minutes to their subscription when they run out of minutes during subscription time. The idea is to allow the users to add more minutes instead of waiting until the new subscription cycle starts.

  4. Could you please restore the function "Launch Skype in the Background"?

    Could you please restore the function "Launch Skype in the Background"? Skype has been my office phone for many years. I like to launch Skype when I launch Windows -- but I want it to launch into the System Tray, not immediately open a new window.

    Skype worked this way for ages, but 2 updates ago it stopped doing so. I still have the setting set to do this, but it does not.

  6. THIS IS A COMPALINT

    THIS IS A COMPLAINT: After being a client for 10 years with Skype for Hong Kong Unlimted, I switched on 19 May 2020 to 400 minutes monthly plan under an annual subscription. The first month 400 minutes did not cover all the calls and I paid for the remianing minutes while the second month I had a 95 minutes credit remaining and only to find out the unused minutes will be forefaited with a new monthly cycle! This condition is NOT made known to me while I was suggested this plan by Skype. FOREFAITING REMAINING CREDIT MINUTES IS NOT FAIR…

  7. extra talk time

    Giving more minutes during the Covid-19 situation,
    I would like to suggest to Microsoft to give more minutes when user subscribed since people are not able to meet in person. They can talk via skype with their relatives if Microsoft could help to people.

  10. Payment Page

    I just wanted to add that your payment page needs an update as I had to make 4 transactions just to add required funds to renew my subscription from 1 month to 12 months. I need you guys should have option to enter custom amount as well. When you put the custom amount it should auto calculate if it is equal or higher the amount what we have entered and it should not accept lesser amount from the billed amount.

  11. Unlimited Europe Price Change Very Discouraging

    Recently Skype changed their Europe Unlimited Mobile and Landlines plan from £16.80 to nearly £30.

    This is supremely unfriendly to people who have been paying £16.80 for years. I am currently using a number I had purchased off skype for my business and had the subscription so people could call the landline number and have it divert to a mobile phone. We would also return missed calls using skype. It was a great way to keep track of calls.

    I am now stuck in a situation where if I would like to keep my business number I have been using…

  13. Add Greece to skype number available countries

    Many providers in Greece are not welcomed because of the high costs for plans and data. A skype number will save much to many people and I think it should be top priority.

  14. SMS costs extra?

    When users sign up for a phone number and pay for the quarterly/monthly/annual service ... they are told they can send SMS as well ... but never are they told at signup that SMS is not included with the phone service and costs additional and extremely expensive Skype Credits for texting .. I had to call support and undo all of the work I did setting this up and get a refund ... This was disappointing and I believe intentionally misleading ... these costs should be made known up front, not hidden ... this breeds bad brand loyalty

  15. I wish that Bahrain gets added for the Microsoft Office Family 365 free minutes ASAP, or at least be able to use it while using VPN/US IP

    I wish that Bahrain gets added for the Microsoft Office Family 365 free minutes ASAP, or at least be able to use it while using VPN/US IP. As it is not fair because we are paying the same amount that other countries customers are paying.

  16. Office 365 'World' subscription

    If you are going to offer a 'World' Skype subscription via Office 365 then do just that and not exclude certain countries. What a con!

  18. Make Skype work with macOS Catalina

    Make Skype work with macOS Catalina. Despite calling your support people, they have not resolved the issue for almost 5 months. And the $9.9 have paid you guys, which still reflects unused in my account, buys me 10 meals in your CEO's country, which also happens to be my country. Sincerely hope MS will resolve this, or I should just move off Skype to Zoom and other products, and let my $9.9 be my contribution towards your Skype bankruptcy fund. Remember Enron, to big to fail?? MS is no exception.

  20. Feature reactivation for smartvs

    I think skype made a huge mistake when it disabled apps for smartvs. In this critical period, in particular, I am unable to speak easily to relatives who live far away. If skype returned this service, it would serve as a great link for many families.
