  1. Add setting to use external browser on mobile

    Please provide a setting that lets users open all links in their default browser/designated app on mobile Skype. I want the functionality of the default app (YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, chrome, etc) when I open links. It's cumbersome to have to click 'open in browser' for each and every link, when it should be a setting users are able to change for all links.

    The Gmail app has this feature. It's a check box that says 'open links in Gmail' that users can uncheck. Please implement something similar for the Skype mobile app.

  2. Bring back privacy settings

    Allow me to define who can send me messages. Either only people on my contact list or everyone.

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request. We have thought this through and due to other high priority engineering that the product needs we decided to prioritize other user-requested items for now. Please keep continue supporting this Idea and we will review it again later. I’ll let you know if anything changes.
