  2. Please allow 4 people on a Skype call to use the Together Mode.

    Many of us are playing games together online. I play Mahjong with two different groups 4 times a week. A week ago, somehow Skype allowed us to use the Together Mode when there were only 4 of us. It was GREAT to use the Together Mode in Skype while playing Mahjong online! But it seems like that was a fluke. Do you have a work around that would allow 4 of us to use the Together mode on Skype? Four is the max for players playing a game of Mahjong.

  6. Enable one handed mode

    Add option to move top menus to bottom and drag down moves entire screen down within easy reach. Check out OH Web browser. Just got it and wish every app had these options.

  7. Additional Online/offline Status

    Can you have an additional status same as invisible but no logo to prove that it is invisible. Looks like skype account is sign out? But you are actually online. anyone would think that i signed out the account.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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!!

  14. Remove the gray bar above and below the call

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

  16. 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.

  18. 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.
