  4. Positioning for call notification window

    The ability to select the position on the screen where call notifications show (bottom-right, bottom-left, etc.), or any solution that doesn't place a a non-opaque square in the middle of the screen when someone is calling.

    A call notification showing in the centre of the screen can interfere with what people are doing at the moment (watching a live stream, playing games, etc.)

  5. bring back audio notification when "contact comes online" would be extremely helpful

    audio sound notification along with notification tray (visual) would be extremely helpful when not actually looking at the screen in Windows 10. Waiting for this for a while now.

  7. Please add better support for sound control in Skype.

    Please add the ability to control which sound happens by person and group. Right now sound is broken in windows and I don't get ANY notifications. It would be good to select .wave/.mp3 files by person or group. I can do this with my phone and it's critical to knowing how fast I should respond to each sound. Banks sound like one thing, friends sound like another. For Skype, I want my brother to have one sound and my friends to have another. It should also be adjustable by send/receive message as well as new notifications. If this is currently…

  9. Please add an option to add your own sounds

    Please add an option to add your own sounds, I'm pretty sure a lot of people want this to be added to Skype. I am not a fan of the notification sound that you hear when someone sends you a message, etc. Thank you for reading this and please vote this if you want this to come true on Skype again! :)

  10. disable skype call quality feedback

    This particular notification of call feedback is a bit annoying, and should be kept as a feedback button with the log of the call posted in the chat box. Like those of emoji reaction button when we hover over chats with our mouse pointer.

  13. Notifications count for Windows taskbar icon

    There is only red spot on icon in the area that contains quick launch (hidden in bottom left).
    But there is no counts for main icon of taskbar.
    So the only way to undestand I have new messag is annoying notification pop up - it's very uncomfortable while working on notebook.
    Or user have should check it manually.

    You can check how Telegram works - they have count of new messages for the icon on task bar.

    PS - or please add close button to notification pop up, as I cannot close it until it dissapear

  14. Skype hidden autostart

    Hey Slack Team,

    I use your application on my new MacBook Pro M1 13,3 Inch and like it very much.

    But I run into a big problem, to get notifications the program needs to run, but I don't want to open it manually every time I start my Mac.

    If I start it automatically over apple menu everything works.
    But when I check the box for a hidden start, so it does not pop up directly when starting, the application still pops up and does not start hidden.

    Also it would be good to have the option to disable the…

  16. Stop pop up notification on the right side of screen instead blinking orange skype icon

    My issue right now is that I want the Skype icon in the bottom bar to blink orange when a new message comes in (like it always used to). If I enable 'chat notifications' I get the blinking orange but I also get a pop-up on the right side of my screen with a preview of the message sent to me.
    Is there a way to just get the icon blinking when a message comes in without the pop-up preview message on my screen?

  18. menu bar icon should show online status (and possibly new messages badge)

    in the old days, on a Mac menu bar, the Skype Icon was solid when online and not solid when (for whatever reason) the online connection was lost. This was super handy, can this feature be brought back?
    (in addition: if the the menu bar icon would show a badge in case of new messages, that would help everybody with hidden dock...) thanks!
