  4. Provide Korean Voice Translation Support

    I would like to be able to have translated subtitles present in my calls when speaking in Korean. We can utilize the text chat features currently, but would also like to include Video Chat Subtitle support while in a video call.

  6. Read reciept

    The read receipt option is available for group chats BUT currently limited to group chats under 20 people which is frustrating. Please elimate this limiting restriction and increase the number of people in a group chat that can allow for the read receipt feature to support a larger group chat.
    Many thanx!!

  7. VK and wrong thumbs with inappropriate content

    Some of the links to VK generates inappropriate thumbs (example — https://vk.com/videos-123508283?section=album1&z=video-123508283456239026%2Fclub). That's really harmful.

  9. Skype Connect SMS

    Skype Connect SMS should also work with the Skype Version on Xbox One. With my Lumia I was able to sync sms to Skype and also receive and send sms over Skype on Xbox. It was so useful. Bring back this feature and also work on the performance of the Xbox Skype App.

  11. Add default status option when signing into web.skype.com.

    I want to use invisible status all the time when logging into http://web.skype.com. I don't want others to know that I signed in for privacy reasons.

  12. Please Continue Older Versions of Skype

    I have a Mac OS 10.7.5, and I can't use Skype anymore, because my older version has been discontinued. It was original clients like me that helped to spread Skype around the world, and now we are cut off. In addition, the attitude of Skype in discontinuing older versions of the application is for me a position of "forced consumption" or planned obsolescence. This is wasteful, anti-ecological, and just a bad attitude in this era of Climate Change and Anthropocene Ecological Crisis. Please pass on this comment to Skype software people. Where is Skype's eco-responsability??? This is an unethical practice…

    Make all common skype features usable/accessible at the same time, from one screen.

    Now users have to click to do different things. For example, when the keypad is present, you have to click to another screen to hang up a call. When talking, the list of calls or contacts disappears from the left side. Why not let users keep all these things present, thereby giving us maximum flexibility without having to click anything?

  15. creating new skype meeting from outlook, for some reason it insert the skype meeting from the cursor up instead from the cursor down.

    It would be nice to insert a new skype meeting creation from outlook from the cursor location down INSTEAD of placing the new skype meeting creation from the cursor location down. Most users may have preference in inserting new items fro the cursor location down.

  16. Quick access to Security Settings

    I changed the primary mail. But it is asking me to wait for a month to enter in to the security setting.

    It should be fast so that we can change the setting.
