  1. Allow user to dump a previous contact's face and recent call.

    I want to delete a person in my People section and I want to delete a Recent Call and not see that person or call. Deleting them out of my Contacts did not get rid of them on my Skype.

  2. Is there a way to stop all these spam / fake profiles that keep trying to add / message you lately?

    Make a way to stop all these spam messages and fake accounts from adding you. When a profile has been reported for abuse / spam a few times delete the profile. Perhaps stop them making multiple accounts.

  4. Hiding Profile

    You should be able to hide your profile so no one can see instead of having to close and delete account. I just want to take a break not start all over.

  6. Receiving Automated SMS from Banks, Websites, etc...

    Currently, skype number does not receive SMS verifications from many institutions such as banks, internet companies, etc...

    Please look into this ASAP since this is a much needed feature for proof of ownership of this phone number.

    Many parties require proof of ownership before accepting the number for any use.

    Thanks

  9. Please allow Skype Web to work in Firefox

    Hi Microsoft Skype engineers and CEO Satya, Google Hangouts and video calls work in Firefox. Hence Microsoft cannot be worse than Google. Please make Skype Web work in FireFox. Microsoft must be the best software company and that means its software works in Firefox too. Don't let Google win.

  11. Export chat easily

    Please enable an 'export chat' feature which can be easily shared on various platforms. Less stressful than copying messages one by one and pasting them elsewhere. Very time consuming!

    I think someone's already mentioned this before!!!

  12. "Only allow contacts to IM me": Bring it back

    Since updating to the newest version of Skype, I receive several intrusive and pornographic IMs a day, with pictures. I never had this problem before.

    Skype used to have the option to only allow people in your contact list to IM you. Bring it back. It would fix this privacy issue. I don't want to receive unsolicited messages.

    Changing the privacy settings as to who can find you does not stop this problem. Besides, it makes sense to be searchable and then just not accept contact requests.

    I will be looking for an alternative to Skype if the option to…

  18. Active Status

    I have an 91 year old mother and she has set up a laptop in her house that I skype several time a day
    On previous versions it used to automatically open video call which meant no interaction from her
    On the latest version of skype for windows 10, although I’ve set everything to auto answer etc, the issue now is skype is not active all the time and is showing away, especially overnight
    Can there be an option to make the status be fully active (solid green circle), it would be so helpful thanks
    When it shows that shes…

  19. auto answer

    Auto answer status/selection should not be hidden three menus deep,

    Also need to have auto answer for conference so that current call in progress is NOT put on hold, but new call automatically joins call in progress.

    A right click on any feature should add it to a quick access bar somewhere.
