  2. Please add an edit feature so that contacts are always current.

    Skype has a contact in it that the number is no longer current. There needs to be a way to update contacts so they are current.

    For one-to-one private conversations, please add "seen" status in left chat bar. This will help to identify if people I send messages to, has seen the last text I sent without opening his/her chat tab.

  7. 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.

  8. Skype number

    I suggest to have an additional option for the Skype Number customers.

    Currently once you purchase the number, the only option is to request for cancellation and refund.

    But, I suggest this option;

    Reserve the number for 1.00 USD /Month..
    And reactivate when you are in a geographical area that Skype is allowed to operate, Like Europe, North America..etc

    By having this option, the customer has the choice to keep his number (like in my case), while still making a small contribution to Skype.

  10. Customized Suggestion of Emoji on Each Message

    Hello there,

    You are showing 15 emoji options to react on each message that we receive.
    Please make that feature customized.

    Points are as below:


    1. Allow to add or remove emojis as user wants. You can keep maximum limits.

    2. Allow to set priorities to show the emojis on the first 5 emoji row.

    3. Allow to drag the positions of emojis as user wants.

    For example, the (bow) is in last 5 set of emoji, we can set to first 5 set. Like wise.

    Thanks

  12. Have a performance oriented mode

    Generally, Skype uses a considerable amounts of animations to make the app user friendly.

    It would be great if there was a performance mode where I can turn down the animations, ignore read receipt animations, make the emoticons static and other features and make the application "snappy" and still keeping it light and functional

  15. Skype on Harmon Kardon Invoke Speaker

    Recently Microsoft (you all) have announced that you will be removing Cortana from the Harman Kardon Invoke Speaker in 2021. While I don't personally agree with this decision I am stuck with it.

    There are 3 reasons that I bought this speaker. It was high quality, it had Cortana and it could make Skype calls.

    My suggestion is, once Cortana is removed still allow the speaker to make and receive Skype calls.

  19. View participants in different arrangements.

    It can be confusing as to who is talking when the video feed fights on the phone or on the computer. It would be good to have different arrangments for the participants. It would also be good to arrange by name, time joined (these could even be viewable as a toggle for keeping track with a timestamp for meeting roll calls). Tiles focused with the ability to swipe to a list to add another person to the focus screen. There's a lot of potential for features in the space of having flexibility and control over the viewing of participants. Please…

  20. Please add a feature to show that sent message is delivered.

    Please add a feature to show that sent message is delivered.
    Right now, we don't know if the message is delivered to user or not. we only that when user see the message and an icon appears under message.
    but it would be great if you can add an icon to show that message is delivered but not seen yet.
