  1. Please add a country

    Please add +599 to your list of countries for Bonaire, Curacao, st Eustatius and Saba, previously known as the Netherlands Antilles. We still exist! Perhaps you can call us Caribbean Netherlands.

  3. "Give me a call when you're back"

    Please remove or give me the option to remove the "Give me a call when you're back" message. More than once i have posted part of that message when trying to send something different. I want to be in command of my Skype, i don't want Skype to be in command of me.

  6. Jump to name by letter

    I prefer an always=visible scroll bar to a normally-hidden scroll bar for scrolling down to contacts' names; I hope you'll make an option to choose alwayhs visible.

    More important, accessing names—I use Skype for calling a lot and have a couple hundred names on my contact list. Scrolling is slow. Make it an option to type the first letter, "M", say, so it jumps to the "M's" in the lst.

  7. Turn off dial pad sounds on iPhone Skype app

    Turn off dial pad sounds on iPhone Skype app. At the moment the app does not follow the settings in the main iPhone 11. If a user turns off all key pad/click sounds on the phone the Skype app still produces dial pad sounds which sounds very unprofessional and is quite annoying if one makes lots of calls. Please turn it off!!

  9. Create new sound filtering options that will allow instruments to be heard along with voices. Or, allow us to turn off sound filtering!

    Skype needs new sound filtering options for musicians. Zoom has already done this to create an optimized experience for music educators. I prefer many of the features of Skype, but right now the new filtering function that cuts out all instrument sounds is making Skype unusable for teaching lessons via Skype. Please offer users new options for music or at least offer the option to turn off sound filtering and echo cancellation. This is essential if you do not want to lose millions of music educators around the world! I don't want to migrate completely to Zoom, but I will…

  10. Edit the auto-recharge amount as per convenience.

    When you enable auto-recharge, there is not option to edit the amount. It gives a by default option of a certain amount when drops below a specified amount. There should be a setting to change both these amount as per the user. Please make it happen.

    In my case, the amount is 600INR when drops below 120INR, by default. But, I would want the recharge amount to be 300INR, as I use it for International callings only and cannot use to call local numbers due to restrictions in my country. Also, I use the same for my official work only.

  17. delete quick action tiles

    It is not only superfluous nonsense to place the meet now or open dial pad ads to the skype welcome window of long term skype users, who do know how, whom and when they wish to meet or call, it is unbearable to "have to" see horrible ugly microsoft icons... There must be an option to delete, to get rid of these (microsoft) ads!! Please implement a delete option in settings, "by quick action":)!!!

  18. ring before auto answer

    Hello We have SKYPE set up for my elderly father to auto answer. However it does not ring prior to auto answer so he does not hear he has a call coming in. It might be nice to allow it to ring x number of times before auto answer so he can know he has a call coming in. We do yell over skype but he is a bit hard of hearning.
