  9. Same phone number for multiple accounts

    Allow multiple accounts to use the same phone number. I have two accounts and am not allowed to list the same phone number for both of them. This makes it difficult to manage the account where I am not allowed to have a phone number. It’s very frustrating

  10. Bring back the exit button you morons!

    Here's an idea. The next time some moron from the marketing department suggests something moronic like removing the exit button, the engineers should refuse!

  13. Chat options

    There is a feature you have for recent and hidden chat wherein you can hide the chat and if they will message you back the hidden chat will show again. That is no longer working and I need that feature to be back again. I hope it will happen soon.

  15. Make the low bandwidth version of Skype available in the U.S. Lots of rural areas in the U.S. still have really slow internet.

    The title says it all. Making it easy for low bandwidth (but steady) to do video calling would be great. A lot of rural areas in the U.S. have terrible DSL, or HughesNet. The latter has modest bandwidth, but occassional lag time on the ping, so some sort of adjustment for that would be part of the solution.

  16. Allow users to disable auto startup in WINDOWS 10, it is annoying to have an application you don't use always running in the background.

    Allow users to disable the auto start of Skype when you boot into Windows 10. It was really dumb to remove this feature just for Windows 10. Please add it back, as it is annoying to have an app you do not use regularly always running and using system resources in the background. It makes people not want to use it, and move to other apps that are more user friendly.

  20. Auto redial is a must and should be added

    there should be a feature that allows redial for no matter how many times you wish to call a number without constantly looking at your phone and you get to know whenever your call is being recived
