  2. Move the Send Attachment, Send Contact, Send Cash, and Send Places buttons into the "+" button

    These 4 buttons tale up space in the reply box, they disappear when you start typing and reappear when the box is empty, which is annoying and distracting.

    I feel they should be moved into the "+" button along with other interactions you can have with a contact rather than having them displayed all the time.

    These don't need to be visible all the time, they're rarely used. The "send" button should stay visible and just grey out when the box is empty.

  3. Ability to remove icons on mini webcam window

    The icons (mic, video, call, and share screen) on the mini webcam video are annoying because they cover up the person's webcam. Maybe skype creators can move the icons to a small black bar underneath the mini window or make it so that they only pop up when you mouse over the window. I have to constantly open up the bigger webcam window because I can't see the other person since they are being obscured by these big icons.

  6. Signing In and Out

    I find it good that when I sign out Skype memorizes my user name, but I think it would be better if it does not memorize also my password

  8. Problem with the camera in MacOS Mojave

    Skype does not find my camera since I updated to MacOS Mojave, even after re-installing Skype. My camera works with all other applications, but not with Skype. Anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?

    Hej!

    I use the latest version of Mac OS 10.14 Mojave and Skype 8 for Mac. The problem still exists in the latest Preview Version of Skype for Mac.

    Symptoms:
    1. Skype crashes and automatically restarts at intervals of around 3-10 minutes.
    2. Skype is very slow in scrolling and entering text.
    3. When Skype us running it uses all available CPU making the fans on my MacBook Pro run at maximum speed.

    The problem has existed since the release of Mojave. I have tried a number of ways of fixing it, including reinstalling from scratch while removing all preferences…

  11. Why can I not delete my conversations and calls from my Ipad Skype. We need a task bar

    Why can we not delete conversations from the Ipad Skype. We could always before. We had a tool bar that we could use. Since you took over Skype, it SUCKS big time. It is such a difficult app to use. Definitely NOT user friendly. We need a tool bar to perform all the things that we did before, before you messed things up.

  13. Ability to delete snapshots - individually or by joint agreement option

    The snapshot as stated by others is poorly positioned and causes randomly timed shoots to occur that then clutter the message board and also annoy the users either as they didn't want a snapshot at all, or don't like the image taken as the person photographed was not prepared for it, and often is at inappropriate time such as the person speaking and their mouth appears open and larger than life, etc.
    Please consider delete option - either snapshooter orientated or both with delete when both have shown agreement to delete, ie 1 has chosen delete that is retained as…

  14. Able to copy message and call logs into other formats for records

    Dear Skype,
    i used to be able to cut and paste the conversations and call information for each person with their name and mine on each entry and the date and time to display in records for work - clinical medicine with patients, or business meeting notes with business calls, the specifics or call, duration, attempted call and time, etc.
    the new version does not allow this anymore, can you look at returning this very useful feature please as other services have it and it is needed for clinical records, and i'd like to keep using skype, but need this…

  17. Phone contact only

    Skype does not see all my iPhone contacts. Also it conflates my skype contacts with my phone contacts. It’s very messy. Please have a phone contact only for the mobile app version.

  18. Skype 7 features most important for Skype 8.

    Just a few of the features I feel need to come to Skype 8 from Skype 7 for me to want to use it, from the perspective of someone who mostly texts chats.

    -MOST IMPORTANT: Ability to defer your update wave to Skype 8 until the features you wish to see are implemented. This was discussed by the previous design director, Peter Skillman, and is a fantastic idea.

    -Ability to disable automatic updates.
    -Ability to disable advanced text formatting options like bold or italics.
    -Ability to resize the chat and contact sidebar (My personal golden area is 650-ish total window…
