  2. Would like to switch between my 3 international Skype caller ID's so that a local ID comes and they have a local number to return the call

    I make frequent calls to the UK, Australia and New Zealand and i live in the USA. I have a skype number for each of these countries so that people can call me back on a local vs an international number. I would like to be able to switch between country caller ID's so that it is not just showing a UK skype number wherever I call.
    It would be great to switch to Aus skype number as caller ID when calling clients in Australia etc.

  3. Compact list mode for Favorite only in Skype App

    Hi!

    I was thinking since you guys have a compact list mode for your app in the settings, would it be also possible to just put an option to customize the compact list mode.

    For example, one can have an option to compact list just the FAVORITE chats or the just the REGULAR chats.

  4. proxy.pac does not work

    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.

    If I set our config direct in internet setting then it work.

    Please fix this or tell me what version I can use where Proxy.pac file settings work…
    I also tried version 8.55.0.141 but it did not work…

    Regards
    Lars Oscarsson

  11. Being able to print the copy of the Skype conversation for your records

    Would love to print the copy of my Skype conversations for the records, Skype should really have this feature because these calls count as phone calls and people need to have proof they spoke with each other via Skype

  12. Delete obsolete conversations in Skype.

    I still do not know why it is not possible to have the right to manage our conversations and particuarly to delete obsolete conversations in Skype. This software is too rigid.

  14. international caller ID

    Dear Engineers
    I am a UK resident living and breathing in the UK. I am not an international customer. So why does the number I set in the Caller ID come us as “International” and completely ignore what I asked it to do.
    Your chat blamed all the other phone services but that’s a rubbish answer as why would Skype let its paying customers be seen as a Cold Caller or a Spammer? This is exactly what’s happening to those who now refuse my calls.
    I use a PC Skype App the latest one and my caller ID is set…

  16. EDIT YOUR SKYPE NAME

    You should be able to edit your skype name. Instead you’re blocked by the the word ‘live’ followed by a jumble of letters and numbers. At the most basic you should be able to view what your skype name is because that information is not available for viewing even as the account holder. It lets you email/text/etc a link which does allow you to share it with other people, but you should be able to be reminded or change your skype name so you don’t have to go through that whole process. If you can edit your name, email, picture,…

  17. Create an option to independently adjust ringer and call volume. Ringer volume is a LOT louder than call volume - causing issues.

    Create an option to independently adjust ringer and call volume. The ringer / ring tone volume when a call is connecting is a LOT louder than the call connection volume during conversations. This creates frustration as users have to manually adjust the volume due to the jarring volumes.

  19. Very unhappy

    Hi, unfortunately I am very unhappy with the support of Skype. I just want to cancel my Skype account and keep the e-mail to use for office and this is not possible to Microsoft support

    I have another account of Skype and there's no reason to keep to Skype accounts.

    Was a very bad support, take so much time to say it's not possible.

    Waiting forward

  20. What happened to being able to capture a picture of those you're Skyping with? I want that back!

    It used to be that we could capture a picture of who we're skyping with. What happened to that? I would like that back.
