  1. Skype 8 - can't update contacts

    Skype 8 Error - cannot see anywhere to update a contact.
    Can't modify a contact - can't add a new contact number for an existing contact.

  3. screen share

    Robust screen sharing should be implemented without dependency on a phone call. I should be able to share my screen and communicate via messaging / chat. Why do I need to be on call to share screen. Should be robust feature in and of itself. Also, you should integrate the whiteboard app with Skype. That is awesome.

  6. Delete conversations means delete, not hide!

    So, the way that I have found this to work is that when I actually want to DELETE a conversation, somehow, after some time, it pops back again. That is not what should happen. I want to be able to get rid of conversations that are no longer of use for me, or I just don't want to remember some, or whatever reason.

    Add this option and, among a few others that should be there by default, at least on a PC (yeah, you got me, I mean KEY SHORTCUTS) and I most definitely guarantee to you that users will…

  7. outlook contacts

    option to show outlook contacts, search and dial them needs to be implemented (currently missing from 8.28). This functionality is implemented in Skype Classic and works just fine.

    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.

  20. 通话界面如果能同时显示联系人列表和群信息就更好了。通话时,切换到别的app,Skype留在屏幕上那个界面占的区域太大了。
