  4. Skype keeps crashing my sound driver

    When in video or audio calls with specific contacts, all sounds may stop - both incoming and outgoing. I have to restart the Windows Audio driver for sound to be picked up again, even within the ongoing call! Sound can be ok for minutes in a row, or may crash within seconds of the last restoration. This is maddening, but somehow only occurs when talking to specific contacts. Bizarre

  5. Bitmoji Integration

    I'm trying to move off of Facebook Messenger, and the one feature holding me back is Bitmoji integration.

    1) Please include the ability to insert Bitmojis directly within Skype
    2) Please display Bitmojis inline and without cropping (they look bad when inserting a Bitmoji via the Bitmoji app)

  6. Sms

    Allow Skype to be default SMS app on android using carrier SMS and MMS rather than Skype SMS. This could replace the stock messaging app completely but also encourage more users to use their Skype accounts if it is all integrated.

  7. audio ducking

    In skype for content creators, the audio ducking when 2 participants talk at the same time really degrades the experience of trying to live stream with skype. Having an option to turn the in-call audio ducking off would make skype with ndi useful. Also, the ability to turn off other skype audio processing would be an improvement. Content creators have the ability to tweak audio to their liking. The raw-er the better.

  9. Mac vibrancy support

    Skype should follow each platform design guidelines. I know that its an electron app and that means single code base for every system, but adding something simple as transparency on the left hand menu to support Mac and Windows would be a nice change for the desktop version.

    Thank you.

  15. Separate the group chats from individual chats

    Maybe separate the group chats from individual chats? It's kind of getting messy when individual and group chats are all under "Chats"

  18. Full size view of my camera frame while in video chat on a desktop system.

    I cant easily see or frame up what I want in the video anymore. Letting me switch to a full size view of my cam while in a video chat lets me show someone what I'm doing or what they need to see easily with out me guessing.

  19. Please restore the favorites feature to the Mac version!

    Please restore the favorite feature to the Mac version. I find I can hardly use the new version without it. it looks like some kind of iPhones contact list or something. I need to just see the people I work with every day, friends and family, tech support numbers, etc.

  20. Please bring back Skype Classic

    Please give us back Skype like it used to function.
    Skype 8 is a vastly inferior application. It is greatly lacking in functionality, it is less user friendly, and it doesn't even function well.
    I honestly don't care if you, the developers, are extremely proud of the new user interface, or if you feel that "unifying" the tablet, phone and desktop experience is a good idea. It simply isn't. Skype 8 is worse than Skype 7 ("Classic") in every way. So please just graciously accept your mistake, and allow those of us who want, revert to Skype Classic, and let's…
