  1. Give option to skype support to change Skype Name for brands

    Even skype support doesn't have authority to change skype name.

    at least give option to skype support so that websites owners and brand can change their skype name

    why google fail in social media because most their services doesn't have custom URL which is very important for brands to share with their website visitors and clients

    not everyone want to give their personal details to connect.

  2. Add the ability to set the Font to Bold, and the ability to set the font itself to any of the fonts already instlled on the system.

    Add the ability to set the Font to Bold, and the ability to set the font itself to any of the fonts already instlled on the system. After having eye-surgery last year, I have bad-vision in one eye, and I need bold font on just about everything so it doesn't get seen as blurred. The simplest idea is to just put in the full options of a Font-selection dialog instead of the extremely limited option of just setting the text size to Normal-small-smaller-large-larger.

  4. Preference to allow to change status from away to active whe ncopmuter wakes from sleep/boots

    As some people want skype to keep their status set to "away" even after a reboot, and others would like it to automatically switch to active after a reboot (or when the computer wakes from sleep), it's probably not a bad idea to make a preference to allow the user to choose what happens in those cases.

  8. Can you add a mic and speaker device selection options to the Mobile app on Android and iOS?

    It would be great if we can change the microphone and speaker selection on the mobile app just as it's available on the desktop version.

  9. Enabling/disabling communications availability by type

    I would like to see the capability to enable/disable availability by category, ie, voice vs chats. In other words, indicating whether or not one is available to receive Skype calls, phone calls (non-Skype), and chats.

    The selected setting should be shown in the status section for others to see. For chats possibly add a place for setting an expected response time (with an easily settable default value).

  10. Add setting to be able to auto-hide new black bars on top and the bottom on the screen (like it was before).

    I hate the bars. I understand that some idiots would call you about a lot saying that their buttons "disappeared" and ask you to fix it, so you can enable the bars by default, but please allow everybody else to be able to auto-hide them (as it was before). Thank you!

  11. Turn on / Turn off Automatic Skype Login when signed into Windows Desktop.

    Turn on / Turn off Automatic Skype Login when signed into Windows Desktop.

    This stops Skype from automatically logging users in once they sign into their Windows Desktop, to keep their data and chat(s) / video calls that extra secure.

    Members will have the option to turn on or turn off the feature at their own discretion (They will need to type in their Password one more time to prove that this is the actual person changing these settings before the feature runs).

  12. Here is an idea, if I set Skype to not launch on start-up DON'T ******* LAUNCH

    Automatic launch set to OFF
    Still, EVERY time I start my PC, there is SKYPE.
    Can anyone at Micro$oft do anything right?
    I know you all think you are
    brilliant, forcing skype to the top of my system during a pandemic, "oh, people will buy and use our ."
    No, we won't.
    Skype is
    , I may want to use it sometime, BUT THAT IS MY * CHOICE.
    If I set some
    task you guys think I may want to NOT LAUNCH on startup, I would like it to NOT LAUNCH ON STARTUP.

  14. New feature, SKYPE ***** OFF

    Here is my idea, Skype doesn't just add itself to my start up in windows 10.
    Here is another idea, when I log into the service I DON'T WANT, and then set it to NOT LOAD when windows 10 starts, IT NOT ******* LOAD.
    Come on Microsoft, you are literally designing your way out of people's interest.

    I do NOT want random programs installing themselves on MY PROPERTY, and then deciding against my options to do whatever the they want on MY *** PROPERTY.

  18. Skype 8.62.0.83 / Can't enable call bar to hide for viewing in Shared Screen mode.

    When I'm trying to see someone else's PC screen when the opposing user enables the "Share screen" mode, I can't completely see their taskbar in the Skype screen & the previous Skype version (8.61.0.87), the call bar auto hides itself.

    The current Skype version (8.62.0.83), doesn't seem to have an option or ability to hide that very same call bar that has the mic mute, video disable & call hang up buttons, on it.
