  1. Click the top left X to be shown that I'm offline !

    I would like to have the feature when I click on the top left X so it turns of so others can see I'm off. Cause once I'm on my laptop people can still see I'm on just away. When I click the X others see I'm offline. Though I'm still online accept I'm doing other things like work. So when I sign in it's green when I click the X then it shows I'm offline ! In invisible mode people can still see that and they know I'm online.

  2. New Reaction

    I was hoping to get Brendon Urie's gross reaction removed from skype and instead get a Tyler Joseph reaction. e.g. "SICK"
    Thank you.

  3. Better rates for non-profit organizations

    It would be very helpful if Skype can offer special reduced rates for approved non-profit organizations so they may make cheap international calls through Skype.

    Dear Skype Team

    Could you please add PANDA HUG to hugging bear, fox, bunny, hedgehog and avocados?
    Me and my girlfired are constantly using Pandas stickers and this is what we are missing in the emoticons most!

    Thank you in advance.

    Mike

  8. This is regarding a problem with the payment system. It appears that manual payments of only $5 may be accepted. This needs to be changed.

    This is regarding a problem with the payment system. It appears that manual payments of only $5 may be accepted. This needs to be changed. Yesterday, I needed to make a $10. Since only $5 payments are accepted, I made two $10 payments. The Skype account processed them, but the bank did not. So, when I entered Skype this morning, I found a message that a previously begun payment needed to be completed. I followed the recommendation, and a third payment was begun. The bank recognized it. However, there was still only 2 payments being processed by the bank. Thus…

  11. Create a Skype Phone

    I'm a huge fan of my Skype Number. I'm less of a fan of my phone carrier. I'd love the option to have a Skype phone.

    I'm envisioning an Android or Windows Tablet the size of a phone that has 4G or Longfi and works with Skype as the primary messaging and voice app.

  16. basque

    Hola,

    Somos dos estudiantes del Master Europeo de Multilingüismo y Educación de la Universidad del País Vasco y nos gustaría que en la interpretación simultánea de idiomas se añadiese el idioma vasco o euskera. El euskera es un idioma que esta creciendo, prueba de eso es la cantidad de artículo que existen en Wikipedia. Nos gustaría, como vascos, sentirnos representados en la plataforma y darle un espacio a esta lengua minoritaria y minorizada.

    Gracias

  19. Select Network Connection to use

    Mac's can use multiple network connections. Can you allow select to the network that works (like Wifi vs Ethernet if both plugged in, and have access to the internet!)

  20. Please add an option to call in. And at least make the chat option easier... It's like breaking into Fort Knox to get a hold of someone help

    How about a call option to call in for support... or at least make the chat more accessible. I spent 20 minutes clicking around before even getting to WAIT IN LINE to chat with someone... Horrible horrible horrible support, Skype... Get it together!
