  3. Skyper interface is very confusing. Personal Skype (not business). I am constantly getting confused between calls, chats.

    skype personal is very confusing. its very non-user friendly. I often get confused between chats and calls. the interface is extremely frustrating. I am relatively tech savvy and work in IT. this is not a PEBK (problem exists behind keyboard) issue.

  4. Get Skype Classic (7) back!

    Just, get skype classic (7) back, it would really bring users back. Skype 8 is literally just a phone app edited to work on computers

  5. You're getting worse in each update. Please, give the old skype back!!

    I miss the old skype design. It was nice, simple and I didn't have any
    complaint. Nowadays, every single update you guys did, just made our so loved communication app worse. I NEED THE OLD SKYPE, PLEASE!!

  6. Remove the gray bar above and below the call

    the gray bar decreases the size of the shared screen, which makes viewing difficult

  8. Skype User Rating Window Scaling in German

    In German language the last option spans out to two lines and hence Submit and Close button falls out of the window frame and needs the page to scrolled down to have a complete view of the buttons.

    Due to this Design issue users are not able to have a 1 click feedback option.

  10. get rid of black bar

    The black bar at the bottom of the screen is ugly and detracts from the personal experience of seeing someone which would be much better full screen.

  15. 2 Skype clients are running on the same PC

    2 Skype clients are running on the same PC
    I think I found the source of most of the bugs that I experience for one year now.

    I have 2 Skype clients running in my PC. These are the versions. Every time I open my PC two clients appear.

    Questions:

    1)Can someone from the development team tell us what is going on here? I installed the latest version of Skype and it should replace the previous one.
    2)I have logged in in both of those clients. But I don't know in which one I have to Quit from at the…

  17. After creating a Skype Meeting in Hotmail, every Skype client should show how to join the meeting

    I will create a calendar event in outlook.com, mark it as a Skype meeting, but then during the meeting time, if I open Skype it's not showing how to join that meeting. This is especially annoying if I'm trying to join the meeting from an XBox.

  18. Hello! May I suggest (1) waiting room, (2) breakout rooms, and (3) file sharing. Thank you.

    (1) Waiting Rooms - as security measure for unauthorized entry of (unwanted/unruly) participants. (2) breakout rooms - for groupings among participants, and (3) file sharing among participants in a session (customizable file types which can be shared).

  20. How can I (we) adjust Skype for incoming calls to Ring longer before the call is answered or automatically ended?

    Apparently this feature has not yet been added or included to the Skype Design as an Option or otherwise.
    I consider it too important to overlook in order to avoid missing an incoming call, and invite you to address it, and us at Skype Community regarding this issue in order to 'Meet Business Needs'.
