  3. Group manager can pin the important message on the bottom of conversation

    My problem: I cannot follow the important message because of spam messages.

    My situation:
    The group manager send an important notify to us via Skype. I didn't get a chance to look through it.
    When I came back, the message is over.
    I had to scroll up, by pass a ton of message and I hate spamming. I cannot do anything to prevent spam message.

    My suggestion:
    Manager can pin the important message on the top of input message bar as one collapse bar. So I can open this message right away when I come back by clicking to collapse…

  4. A way to disable incoming calls for mobile skype

    So basically I use skype on my PC and when i get calls there my phone also rings. This opens the closed app and it is now ringing and running when i dont want or need it to. So if i can disable the incoming calls for the mobile app so it doesn't just open i can save on battery and not disturb people around me.

  7. 'Screen Freezing' - option while we share our screen

    It would be great if we get a 'Screen Freezing' - option while we share our screen in Skype, as we have that in typical projector screening.

  8. UWP App crashes with Oops! error when I try to call a phone number.

    ALL VERSIONS OF UWP on Desktop and Phone crash when trying to dial a phone number, receive a call to my Skype Number, or view history of Skype calls involving phone numbers. All Skype to Skype works fine. This all started after 01/26/19 and I've seen other users than myself complain. What did Skype change after that date? When will Support ask my for logs on my devices to fix this issue?

  9. Keep dialpad visible during calls

    During a call, keep the dialpad visible. It's frustrating to have to go to the dialpad button each time I want to put in something.

  10. Allow keyboard number pad to be used for dialpad

    When inputting conference details during a call, it would be useful to allow the keyboard number pad to work with the dialpad. This used to work, it's frustrating it was removed.

  17. Viewing status of "Skype for Business" users by "Skype" users

    Viewing status of "Skype for Business" users by "Skype" users

    In updated version of Skype, users can not view status of “Skype for Business” contacts. Service request number 1460446323 was raised and I get feedback that this feature is currently not available. Please do include this very useful feature in upcoming upgrade.
