    I am having problems with the new translator. When initially announced, it was suggested by Community that enabling it immediately would ensure that translations would continue automatically. They did not.
    Eventually after a break the new translator began to operate but it is unreliable and often simply stops in mid conversation and we can find no way of re-establishing it, although occasionally it will work at a later conversation although intermittently and sometime for only one half of the conversation. In short it is not fit for purpose.
    I have contacted Community in the hope of finding a solution and…

  4. Unlink Microsoft Account from Skype account

    When I got my laptop and signed in with my Microsoft Account for the first time, Microsoft decided to automatically create a Skype account which I didn't want and I can't delete it without deleting my Microsoft Account. And I can't unlink my Skype Account.

  5. Создание опроса в Скайпе. Кол-во символов.

    Здравствуйте, уважаемые!

    Создание опросов в скайпе - одна из функций, выгодно выделяющая Вас на фоне конкурентов. Конечно, такой функционал есть и у других мессенджеров, но на данный момент реализовано это лучше всего у скайпа, имхо.

    Но вот ограничение символов в опросе - очень суровое. Сколько их там? Кажется 40... Этого не хватает практически не для чего. Написать день недели, название ресторана и время, не говоря уже про адрес - не хватит. Описать какую-то задачу или проблему - тоже нет. А что мешает?) Я один едва-ли смогу "изменить мир" и заставить вас доработать функционал, но в качестве отзыва оставлю.

    И ещё!…

    How to stop Skype appearing and loading when I don't want it. I have no idea what Skype is but it keeps popping up and loading when not wanted. It's probably a marvellous thing and I have no doubt it was loving crafted by highly skilled and caring people but I have absolutely no interest in it. How can I get it to go away?

  15. I would like you to get the Skype desktop applcation to read Windows Proxy

    Skype 8.53.0.85 doesn't read proxy settings
    Hi !
    I've uppgraded all the Skype Desktop applications at my workplace from 7.32.104 to 8.553.85 and now it does not recognize the Proxy setting.
    We use a Proxy.pac file for configuration and that does'nt work.

    Please fix this
    I also tried version 8.55.0.141 but it did not work…

  20. API

    There seem to be multiple posts re access to API by third parties. It used to be available but not now. Be interesting to get an actual response and preferably action from Microsoft.
