  1. Don't install with windows. Never install

    It is super bad user experience. Wasting peoples' time, they get annoyed, disliking the Skype situation even more. Plus giving you an enhanced bad publicity wrap leading up to the after work mockery at the bar.

  2. Camera button gone from Video chat screen after Update

    Just updated Skype on my Android Google Pixel 3xl phone. Prior to update, there was a take picture button on the video chat screen. It's now a Heart button. In order to take a screenshot now, you have to press 3 dots & go to 2nd menu, where take button has now been located. The extra step, delays taking the photo & the moment is then lost...

  4. delete quick actions on welcome screen

    It is not only superfluous nonsense to place the meet now or open dial pad ads to the desktop of long term skype users, it is unbearable to "have to" see horrible ugly microsoft icons... on my personal PC! There must be an option to delete, to get rid of these (microsoft) icons!! Please implement a delete setting by quick action!!!

  5. Fire the SKype Team (more managers), use Focus Groups, and fix problems with the app ...

    Fire most of your Skype Team and start over with a rewrite. Get some Focus Groups of people that really use it.

  7. Contact bar on left should be exandable in width

    I have few groups that have same names but last parts of the names are different and at present I cannot change the width and all appear the same. Please allow users to expand its width.

  10. Háttéreffektus nem működik!!!

    A Skype 8.65.0.76 miért kötelező telepíteni, amikor az előző verzió a 8.55,0.141 jobb volt, mert ennél nincsen háttér effektus, de a réginél volt. Hogyan tudom megoldani, hogy a háttéreffektus működjön? Kipróbáltam többet is, és mindegyiknél működött csak a 8.65.0.76-nál nem. Kérem a segítségüket, az is jó volna, ha nem volna kötelező letölteni az újat, hiszen úgy is letöltjük, de ha nem jó visszatérünk a régihez, de akkor is az újat vagyis a hibásat telepíti, Így éles marad a háttér, sajnos!!!

  14. Touch through the network

    If there exists a device that gives the ability to touch through the network, would you ever want to integrate it into Skype? So we can touch each other, not just see and hear.

  17. Emojis background in message reaction in Dark Theme

    Hi!
    Currently reaction emojis are nested into a white circle under the message, even in Dark Theme. Which not only is not beautiful but also make it really hard to distinguish the emoji itself.

    It would be a simple modification to do that reaction emoji background are dark in dark theme.

    Thanks for reading ! :)

  19. Don't use that css scrollbar

    I hate css custom scrollbar that appears in Skype and other Microsoft newer stuff. Give the user the ability to change the scrollbar to what Windows use and I not saying to use css custom scrollbar for windows. I really wish you just stop using CSS.
