  3. I want to see my favorites when I select contacts -- not chats.

    Currently I can only see "my favorites" when I have chats selected. It would be more helpful to see my favorites when I have contacts selected.

  4. Make account recovery easier

    Its impossible to regain access to an account with information you haven’t used in years. Forcing you into an automated email loop. Send recovery requests to the updated email. Not the original sign up email.

  6. Throttle or limit notificatoins

    It would be very nice to be able to throttle or limit notifications, for example only notify once that new messages are available, or once per a period of time as new messages arrive. When I am busy working on something else getting endless notifications that a conversation is taking place is more than distracting, the popups can block my work. The only way to limit this behavior is to disable notifications which means I never know when I have a message, or enable a do-not-disturb mode that also blocks every other app that has a more well behaved notification…

  7. Preventing removing from the conversation

    When learning via the internet, the group chat administrator function is urgently needed so that no one can remove anyone from the conversation. Alternatively, a second function that shows who removed you from the conversation. To prevent fooling around. This function is urgently needed.

  9. Today I found out that I have a second Skype account, which I

    Today I found out that I have a second Skype account, which I was not aware of. This was "created automatically" from my Microsoft account. It caused some confusion, since I kept buying Skype credit for the wrong account. I wish users were better informed about this possibility, and given the option to unify their different accounts if they so wished.

  11. The ability to see all partners at once

    Please invent the setting which helps change the number of videos on my screen! If I have a chat with 10 people, I can see only 4 of them while the others are just little circles on top of the screen. I need to move them all the time to see everybody.

  12. call admin management

    I suggest the ability to decide group call administrators. to take away the administrator power of some people in group calls. I also suggest activating a call log to understand who removes other people from the call. These functions are useful in conferences and in call management

  16. Vorrei proporre che venisse modificata la possibilità di eliminare partecipanti o mutarli durante il corso di una videochiamata. Grazie.

    Sono uno studente e vorrei proporre che venisse modificata la possibilità di eliminare partecipanti o mutarli durante il corso di una videochiamata. Ciò ostacola gli alunni e i professori nel pieno svolgimento delld loro funzioni. Grazie per la vostra attenzione

  17. Group call on Echo Show

    Enable Skype group call on Echo Show! This is extremely important in this period of global emergency and elderly people use Echo Show to communicate with their relatives.

  18. Virtual Background

    A virtual background when having video calls would make the call more private, more discreet.

  20. Easier emoji search

    Our company changed to this platfrom from SLACK. One thing i like from slack that easier emoji search. Here we must start with '(' and this is hard to do with one hand i must use both hands to do that parentheses. Shift and 8 is far far away but slack's emoji search startswith ':' like ':+1:' and this is much better because shift and ':' so close.
