  1. Option to turn off speaker phone on Android app

    The call is too loud over speaker and if I could turn it off it would be at a much more bearable volume.

  3. Removing Microsoft account

    We need to be able to delete a Microsoft account from our Skype account.
    Somehow, my mom accidentally combined her Microsoft account to my Skype account while we were Skyping my sister.
    Now all of her is on my Skype account and it won’t get removed until they allow us to remove the Microsoft account.
    I am so sick of her information being on my Skype account that I’ve had for over a decade. I shouldn’t have to get a new Skype account because of a mistake my mom made.
    Seriously, let me remove her
    **** Microsoft account from my…

  5. Which of my Skype numbers is receiving a call?

    Right now, when I receive a call to my Skyoe account, I don't know how I'm receiving that call. Is it a Skype to Skype call to my Skype ID? Is it a landline call to one of my Skype numbers? If it's the latter, which of my multiple Skype numbers is the one being called?

    It would be great if I could see that information so I know what the call may be about. Thanks!

  8. In Case of Change of Organisation user change the Mail ID How to bring back that users :-1. Give the chance to user to verify by mobile

    How to Recover the Old ID :-


    1. Share the Old Mail ID and Ask to Create new Mail ID

    2. Mail Id Verified by two way Authentication
      3.Same if user want to change Mobile Number ask to add new Mobile Number

    3. Mobile Number can verified by registered Mail

    So in any case lost of mobile or Mail id User can come with the same User Id .Skype will save lot of costs for the same also Skype user will be organic and Continuous with Skype .

  9. Sign in Feature

    Hello,

    I am enjoying skype messaging and calling features.

    But there is some feature which is quite irritating some time doing the same thing again and again.


    1. It will ask you about your profile every time when you log in.


    2. Remember me function should not be like that. currently, if I click on Yes while logging out. then next time it will not ask me for the password.


    In my opinion, only a skype id should be remembered as it is a desktop application and anyone can access it in the absence of you.

    Thanks

  10. Updates

    Please allow me to have some control over update settings. I would like to update at my convenience, maybe weekly at a time I choose. Automatic updates disrupt my communication. I am considering other platforms due to this issue.

  12. To me the most annoying part of Skype chat is that when I look at the past chats I can't easily see which day they are from.

    you need to improve the layout for text chat.
    Right now is very hard to know the date of the message.
    I can see hour and minute, but not the date.
    Sometimes the date appears, and sometime not.
    I suggest that you fire the person who designed it and hire someone with some sense.

  16. An option to find a particular person's posts in the groups is requested. P.S. It was there in the old Skype app.

  19. React rewards that can be sent during a call at the click of button.

    I want to be able to praise and reward children I work with via react rewards such as confetti bomb animations, balloon release etc. This needs to be a instant feedback button which displays the animation over the top of the child/tutor's video stream and is controlled by the "host". Similar to Facetime overlays or Facebook text delights.
