  1. Double click to call

    Bring back double click to call a contact. We now have to make 3 clicks, click contact - click drop down phone icon - click call skype. This isn't efficient.

  5. Please Implement callto: protocol.

    Problem:

    I have to make several business calls with skype every day - and I simply can't manually copy-paste every number for every call that I have to make.

    It makes me waste so much time you can't even imagine, and I bet that others like me simply can't afford to waste so much time manually copy-pasting numbers before calling them.

    What I've been doing to fix the problem:

    I've been using skype classic up until now because in that version the callto: protocol is working, but now for some weird reason I'm being forcefully pushed to update to the…

  6. Create page with Windows Desktop Insider Release Notes

    For those using the Insider version, we still need to know what's new so we can actively test out new features and report bugs. There's only Release Notes for public channel versions, but no the Insider versions. Or better yet, make the Insider Release Notes available right in the Insider App.

  7. Long press to preview emoji animation from the emoji picker

    Problem: On mobile, all the Emoticons are static and can be miss understood.

    Solution: Add the ability to view the emoticons before it's sent. I recommend the ability to view the animated emotional by long pressing the target emoticon from the emoticons picker

  8. Enable up to 10 group chat video streams to be visible in grid with ability to enlarge view of whoever is speaking

    Instead of just four large video stream images filling the screen, provide option to see all participants – up to the max of 10 – in evenly sized images with the option to enlarge the image of whoever is speaking.

  10. chat input field focused all the time

    I should be able to type the reply without clicking.
    Now to type text, you have to click the area 1/3 of input field size, it's hard.

    Telegram behavior can be used as a template.

  11. Actualizaciones o tocada de cojones

    ¿Porqué no dejáis de tocar la polla de una puta vez con la mierda de actualizaciones?

  12. keep the related emojis on message box for specific daya like independence day, republic day, formers day and some big festivals related.

    every special day show the emojis on top of message box, the emojis should represent the special days example:independence day, republic day, big festivals, farmers day etc.

    The video call feature in android is different from the one in your desktop or computer. You will not be able to send a message if you are on a video call, if you are using a mobile device. You have to switch to the chat feature to send instant messages.

    Wish that would change.

  17. Share Status

    Bring back the feature where we can share our status in Skype. In an extra categorie.
    Swipe from chat to "News" and see the latest Status from your contacts. It would also great to share content and comment/like the status. A little bit like facebook. But on a easy way. It would be also nice to see the Xbox time-line there 😁

  20. When searching for someone in contacts, as soon as you message them, the search results should not be cleared.

    When searching for someone in contacts, as soon as you message them, the search results are cleared. This should not happen. The search results should show on screen until the user cancels the search.
