  2. Provide an option to make the split screen view used for captions default

    Skype offers a split screen view for captions so they do not cover the video image. However, there is no way to make this the default view for those who want such.

  4. HOW TO DEFINITELY SAVE THE AMENDMENTS TO THE SETTINGS???

    Every single day I enter my acct, go to the settings, amend the size of the font/typing (I set it bigger since the starndard one is too small)...till then all is in order...the problem arises the following day, when I turn skype on again and my last settings are lost and the small font is back so I have to restart the process from the beginning (settings/typing/larger one...)...very frustrating after more than one month doing so every single day, twice per day at least...

    QUESTION: HOW TO DEFINITELY SAVE THE AMENDMENTS TO THE SETTINGS???

  5. appearance settings changes

    After Login the second time after choosing not to remember my account details at the first log out, all the appearance settings arranged goes back to default. It should remain the same unless the user decides to change by itself.

  6. PLEASE FIX Export chat history

    This just was released, but the format is all messed up, the chat is unreadable, are pages and pages of mixed contacts, days, and codes like this:

    06T23:36:50.342Z","messagetype":"RichText","version":1557185810391.0,"content":"ok","conversationid":"8:","from":"8:,"properties":null,"amsreferences":null},{"id":"1557185806063","displayName":".","originalarrivaltime":"2019-05-06T23:36:46.029Z","messagetype":"RichText","version":1557185806063.0,"content":"","conversationid":"8:","from":"8","properties":null,"amsreferences":null},{"id":"1557185795328","displayName":"*******","originalarrivaltime":"2019-05-06T23:36:35.295Z","messagetype":"RichText","version":1557185795328.0,"content":

    Just add an export chat button next to each contact and let us have the old function back.

  11. GIFS

    It would really be nice if the GIF feature worked even remotely well... You can't see the Gifs they are so small and they are previewed so you can't see the whole thing. Also links from Giphy.com (even short links) do not automatically display.

  12. Phone number keypad should be at the top level

    I'm trying to find the place to dial a phone number. I have to search through all the tabs.

    Better if it's a tab.

    See the phone app on iPhone.
    Keep it the same as things I already know.

  14. engaged

    DO not ring when Im on a call and give the caller an engaged tone

    The sound cuts out on the current call which is most unhelpful
    Why not just give an engaged tone so the second caller knows im on a call and to call back later.

    The current system is very poor in this respect

  20. Make part of a password visible on the app.

    Banks will show you pay of your bank card number so you know which card you used.
    Can you do the same for the so password.

    My phone kids me in to Skype.
    My pc Skype is locked and I cannot get in because it was trying to force my to use a Microsoft login not my personal login that I have had since before Microsoft bought Skype.
    The over rigorous ms account security rejects all my answers and days I am not me so it will not send me a new password.
    And so I cannot get in at…
