  1. Add an ability to disable GPU hardware acceleration

    For some Electron apps it's common in case of Linux to hang an entire system in the unpredictable manner. I saw this behavior on Skype, RocketChat, VS Code. My current understanding is it may be related to GPU hardware acceleration, as for some users it was a solution. See the example here:

  9. UK ringtone for UK Skype number whilst travelling abroad

    I travel extensively and have lost business due to foreign ringtones. Would you be able to override foreign dial tones and have a 24/7 UK ringtone with a UK Skype number?

  10. Video recording settings

    Для уменьшения размеров видеофайла записи необходимо изменять размер окна изображения и количество кадров в минуту! В настройках камеры установите несколько готовых шаблонов окон и кадров (10 - 20)!
    To reduce the size of the recording video, you need to change the size of the image window and the number of frames per minute! In the camera settings, set several ready-made window and frame templates (10 - 20)!

  11. Add filters for chats to display

    I would like more filters for the chats that are displayed, for example to only show chats with messages in the past x number of days. I have chats from several jobs ago that I wish did not appear in my default view (Recent Chats). Chats from 2015 are not recent!

  13. Independent call forwarding settings for multiple skype numbers

    I've two different skype numbers. One is in the USA the other in the UK. I would like to change the order of call forwarding to route incoming calls to the number closest to the skpe number called. For example, if the caller rings the USA skype number, the forwarding will first attempt my designated USA mobile and similarly calls received on the UK number first attempt the UK mobile provided. As you might imagine due to time zone differences, calls forwarded during business hours in the UK to a USA number on the west coast USA is problematic as…

  16. bluetooth

    If a bluetooth headset is connected it should be the default audio device, not the speaker... you know, like any other phone application.

  17. Robocall

    Do not allow calls from numbers not in your Contacts. This feature is listed but does not work as I have it enabled but am still receiving Robocalls. The feature needs to be updated/upgraded. This could boost your user base immensely as cell providers have no solution and everyone is sick of it.

  18. Polyglot support - multiple languages at once

    It would be great if Microsoft could support more than one language at once. This would be a wonderful feature for people who are bilingual, or for polyglots or anyone learning another language. I speak 3 languages at once and the autocorrect features are extremely annoying since I switch my language several times in the span of a few minutes. Changing the language settings the way it is setup now simply doesn't cut it.

  19. editing tool for better, selective management of historic calls, messages, gallery, etc

    improve the editing functions to allow more selective editing to manage call log data effectively. Seems, on MAC OS Sierra, that you can only delete all the history on any particular contact, and only remove content that originator created, not received. There ends up being a huge amount of 'missed call and old voicmessages that cannot be got rid of by receiver, even if you mark it as 'unread from here' it doesn't go away. A massive waste of cloud storage space.

  20. Have section where you can check & edit your password on your laptop -helpful when you get logged out of phone & don't recall new password!

    I just was logged out of the laptop & forced to make a new password, last week. This week, same with my cellphone, but I cannot recall the new one as it happened when I needed to get on in a hurry! Of course same deal now, and way more serious need, but I started up the laptop & checked as other online accounts for other things have that facility, unbelievable that Skype doesn't really!
