  5. Allow marking of incoming spam calls and display warning to users.

    Skype-In numbers sometimes receive spam calls. Allow us to mark such numbers as spam and have a warning message displayed with incoming calls that come from numbers that have been reported for spam. That way we can decide not to answer incoming calls that others have marked as from spammers, and also report numbers falsely so marked. Numbers should be automatically delisted when no complaints are received for a specific time, e.g. 3 months. There should also be an option to automatically block all incoming calls that have been marked by the community as coming from spammers. https://www.shouldianswer.com have already…

  6. Give us a toggle for formatting

    Please, just give us a toggle for turning advanced formatting on or off, like you have in Skype 7+. For those of us who have difficulties with reading things that are bolded or italicized due to being low vision users, something like this is vital. Putting two @ symbols in front of every post is not a feasible workaround, due to how things work in Skype. Please, just give us this back.

  7. Dialing from Mac Contacts using Skype is not longer working with Skype.

    I had Microsoft SkypeABDialer and SkypeABCaller bundle in my Address book library on my mac. This would allow me to dial using skype direct from Apple contacts Now that I upgraded to Mojave it is no longer working. This is a very important feature for me. Is someone working on updating the ABbundle so when you select a phone number in apple contacts it gives you the option of dialing from your cell phone or dialing from Skype.Please it is very hard to find info about this. I think the ABCalling bundle was included with Apple Mountain Lion. It functioned…

  10. Allow automatic download of images

    In Skype 7 all images are downloaded automatically and stored in a received files folder. Some users didn't like this, and it is no longer in Skype 8. However, some users, like myself, found it quite useful as all images sent across Skype were automatically saved, removing the hassle of having to manually save images.

    In Skype Preview (8.36), there is an option in the settings to allow users to automatically download files - this only works for files, however, and it does not automatically download images. I think within this option in the settings, or through a new option,…

  15. Disable space bar from ending calls

    I really think there ought to be an option to disable space bar from ending calls on windows and apple computers. Either by adding hotkey support or some alternative solution that simply disables space bar for ending calls

  18. type letters to numbers

    One more function that was lost in the transition from ver. 7.
    Allow typing on the keyboard to translate to numbers to make calls. This should be simple and certainly something that a computer can do and used to do. Many companies get phone numbers that they publicize as a word, currently have to peck at the dialpad to call them instead of just typing.

  19. Wear OS (Google Wear) support

    The previous Skype version had Google Wear support. It would be great if we could start Skype conversation, calls from smartwatches based on Google Wear OS.

  20. Bring Close button [X] on right

    Some popup window like "Settings" shows Close button [x] on left. In Windows OS, it should be right side. It is very irritating to click sometime left , sometime right.
