  1. Skype on Android should show unread message indicator

    All my other messaging apps show a numeric overlay indicating how many unread messages are awaiting me.

    Except Skype.

    Which means I often miss, or delay responding to messages from family or friends.

    This means I trust and rely upon Skype less than my other messaging apps, and use them more.

    PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP

  3. remmeber password

    I'm tired of having to log in every time, return the old feature of remember username & password

    If not possible, allow us to use old skype classic without forcing us to upgrade to this new one (I hate it so much! but can life with it if at least could remember username & password)

    Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. There is a way how to permanently delete your Skype account of course. Just follow the steps here: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/all..

    However, if you will delete your Skype account, you will also delete your Microsoft account and you’ll no longer be able to sign in to other Microsoft consumer products or services such as Outlook.com, Office Online, OneDrive, Xbox Live, or Windows.

    Please bring back sound notifications for new messages in the current open chat. I am visually impaired person and I use screen reader to work with the Skype. Wile ordinary people can see the new messages in the open chat straight after they come up, the low vision/blind users need to scroll up through the chat window in order to read new message. Consequently it is very easy to miss the new message in the current conversation. For example, while I am typing, a new message arrives but, without sound notification, I am unable to figure it out and only…

  13. Don't close the Skype window, when closing an image from a chat

    Please, don't close the Skype window, when closing an image from a chat! This is annoying!!!

    When I close an image, I expect to go back to chat window, instead, skype is being minimized to tray.

  14. Copying the message/quote from one's windows and pasting it as *Quote Paste* instead of the plain message

    In older Skype versions, we had option of pasting a message from one window to other as Paste as a Quote. Which is missing in this latest version of Skype.

    Consider it in the updated version.

  16. Disable call window

    I have two monitors. I absolutely do not need the popup view of the person I am calling. It gets in the way and the person I am talking to already has an entire monitor dedicated to them. If I close it, click on Skype, then click off IT COMES BACK. The old version didn't do that. If you're going to force me to upgrade my version against my will after I opted-out of automatic updates then AT LEASE UPDATE ME TO A VERSION THAT ISN'T WORSE THAN THE OLD ONE.
