  4. The ability to reset my skype account

    Because Skype accounts are Microsoft accounts I am not able to reset it without closing my entire Microsoft account which would cause me to lose everything from emails to purchases. This should be rectified ASAP.

  6. Do not enlarge image on image viewer

    When viewing an image, do not enlarge the image (than its original resolution) to avoid blurry image.

  8. Noise Cancellation

    Please set up a noise cancelling app. A lot of people these days are using Skype for teaching purposes. It will be great if Skype could have an option for noise cancellation. Thank you so much!

  12. Make Auto Updating More Nuanced

    Two parts:
    1. Add an option to forego unit striding through minor revisions (8.48.0.51 -> 8.49.0.49) so to impose on user configurations much less frequently. A parametric option, e.g., "Apply major releases and every 10th minor release", would go a long way


    1. On Windows desktop updates, do not automatically deposit a shortcut and icon on the desktop, as many of us delete those every single time Skype muscles it on yet another time

  17. Location sharing in Microsoft Store version

    The desktop version of Skype has location sharing. Why doesn't the Microsoft Store version have it?

  18. Export chat history function within app

    There should be a button to export chat history in the application itself. Why do you not want to add this? The way you implemented this through a website is more complicated than it should be.

  19. Import contacts from contacts on Mac into Skype. I have over 1100 contacts that I cannot access and you have lost out on our interaction.

    Import contacts from contacts on Mac into Skype. I have over 1100 contacts that I cannot access and you have lost out on our interaction. It is impractical to do this one at a time. Whyever was it dropped?

  20. Highlight

    On new message Skype icon not blinking, just updates number of messages on icon that is not visible at all and we need to specially look for skype and see if it has some number over that, so if we are working on other file the number increment dont helps at all.
