  1. Location sharing in Microsoft Store version

    The desktop version of Skype has location sharing. Why doesn't the Microsoft Store version have it?

  2. Export chat history function within app

    There should be a button to export chat history in the application itself. Why do you not want to add this? The way you implemented this through a website is more complicated than it should be.

  3. Import contacts from contacts on Mac into Skype. I have over 1100 contacts that I cannot access and you have lost out on our interaction.

    Import contacts from contacts on Mac into Skype. I have over 1100 contacts that I cannot access and you have lost out on our interaction. It is impractical to do this one at a time. Whyever was it dropped?

  4. Highlight

    On new message Skype icon not blinking, just updates number of messages on icon that is not visible at all and we need to specially look for skype and see if it has some number over that, so if we are working on other file the number increment dont helps at all.

  5. Save my Chat

    Hello Team, A new functionality that can save parts of the chat would be helpful. Add other user details like name, ( group members if it is a group), day, time etc that can be used as a confirmation on some common discussions.

  6. Hello Team,

    At present, the skype is displaying an option to record the screen and later if I'm recording the screen then once the call is ended then the screen recording should come to me but the option is coming to another user who has attended the call.

  8. Hello! The choice of who can see me online is missing. I can't talk to all my contacts at the same time and when I don't they get upset.

    Hello!

    It would be helpful to show online status for one contact and offline for the rest.

    Thank you.

  9. Привет! Два окна в скайпе - это круто!

    В компании где я работаю скайп используется для служебного общения с коллегами. То что, в скайпе только одно рабочее окно очень не удобно, если ты одновременно общаешься в разных чатах. Если бы окно скайпа можно было бы разделить на два или три окна, общение с коллегами стало бы проще!

    В одном чате тебе пишет клиент, а в другом доставка? Открыл два окна и оба чата у тебя перед глазами!

    Сделайте скайп более похожим на браузер!

  13. The Old Messages

    Can you please please please I beg you please do not delete the old messages/ random messages in the chat. I only see the old messages up to 6 months and it sucks. It also deletes the old pictures too. What problem do you have with old messages? I just want to go 3 years back and read the messages or just look at a picture that was sent a year ago. But no, Skype deletes them. I seriously hate this. Please fix this as soon as possible and give our old messages back to us.

  16. Camera Orientation (option to choose between a mirrored or normal camera orientation)

    Hello! Hopefully you can put back the option to change the camera orientation (i.e. mirrored or normal) in both Skype for Windows and Mac. It has been such a helpful feature before and I'm looking forward to using that option again. Thanks!

  17. Auto gain/Sound Control

    Please allow us to have dynamic sound control including input/output volume, gain control (auto-gain OFF), noise gates, etc.

    Long-duration calls degrade so quickly after around 20 minutes, where Skype decides that it wants to pick up the fan in the background, the neighbor’s dog, and the rats crawling in the wall before the caller’s voice. This leads to painful balance where the output volume is too high, leaving the person’s voice distorted and incoherent.

    Put the power in the user’s hands to fix it as they require for their calls. Desktop versions have this feature, but mobile is left out.
