  1. voicemail

    Customized voicemail for most business is a necessity. I will be cancelling because this feature is not available. Most professionals need a customized voicemail greeting.

  4. For one-to-one private conversations, please add "seen" status in left chat bar

    For one-to-one private conversations, please add "seen" status in left chat bar. This will help to identify if people I send messages to, has seen the last text I sent without opening his/her chat tab.

  5. A great feature would be add the ability to make your computer into a skype server for others on the internet by processing data for them.

    A wonderful idea would be to be able to turn your computer into a Skype server like team fortress classic so that others on the internet can process the data faster and in better quality adding to the overall processing power of the conversation so that more people can be added to a conversation like for a church group that way everyone that goes to that church can join in the conversation at once.

  9. remove the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen

    i’m not a fan of the black bars at the top and bottom of the skype calls. it makes it hard to see the person i’m on call with and it’s not as attractive as the floating icons were. i thought that if i hadn’t touched the mouse for a bit that the bars would go away but they’ve remained and its a bit stressful and it’s an inconvenience to me and i’m sure it is for others. i hope you consider changing it back to the floating icons on the next windows update.

  13. Please Bring the UWP version back.

    The UWP version of Skype was real good. It had a nice UI which was user friendly. The electron version looks dated, and there's a white bar at the top which remains white even when you switch to dark mode which just ruins the whole look.

  15. My skype doesn't get automatically updated. Surface pro 7 with Windows 10 Home 1903. My Skype version is My Skype version is 8.56.0.102.

    My skype doesn't get automatically updated. Surface pro 7 with Windows 10 Home 1903. My Skype version is My Skype version is 8.56.0.102. It's causing issues in syncing. Once I updated it to the latest version of Skype, I stopped having issues with messages unsynced from the server. I'm not supposed to constantly check updates, uninstall and install new apps etc. Plus, even if I try to update it within the app, there is no way to do it barring "Join Preview". Take care of it.
