  1. Resizing Skype

    Resizing to a smaller size so it covers less of the screen. The old skype could be reduced to a much smaller size

  4. Remaining Time Bar unclear when reaiming is 0

    Remaining Time Bar unclear when reaiming is 0.
    When time is being consumed this bar is quite good and clear about remaining time.
    But when time is zeroed the bar does not show in a clear way if it is completelly full or completelly empty.

  7. Categorize the chats

    Chats space is getting so congested with all the groups and others under a single category. Kindly add a way to organize chats. Create some containers like work, personal, etc, and allow users to organize them. Provide some features to hide chats that are no more required. Categorize unused chats under a space. If in the organization while getting messages from many or finding a chat in between a work becomes tedious.

  11. Private settings until changed

    I think Skype account settings should initially start off private until the user wants to change them. I had a Skype account made for me without me knowing, because I have a Microsoft account for my laptop. I was on my laptop and suddenly received an incoming call on Skype from a man who claimed to know me. He knew me by name and had access to my email address and would not stop ringing. This incident happened because Microsoft made me a Skype account automatically and did not inform me well enough for me to realise. It also made…

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  20. 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.
