  5. Deletion of Skype account without deleting MS Account.

    Allow user to delete their Skype Profile without it effecting their MS Live Account. This feature is very much needed for people especially as you (MS) have now introduced MS Teams as the next communications software.

    Give back choice and STOP forcing people to be signed up to things they do not want.

    I have had a Skype Account since before MS bought Skype...

    All was well until I created an MS Live account on a Windows 8 Laptop and was then given a new Skype account, then had the same thing happen when I got a new desktop with…

  13. Why don't you bring back the old Skype versions so we don't have to come here any longer. Just deleting multiple chats in one go is arduous

  14. New skype phone number in Spain for deafs people, so we can use the real time subtitles in calls, and availability emergency calls

    Hello. I have a handicap, I'm deaf. For this reason, I find very useful the subtitles in real time while I'm doing a videoconference with a partner in Skype. Skype is the only one service that works fine the subtitle in real time, while others (google, zoom, etc...) don't think to offer service to people like me (deaf handicap). I can even do calls through Skype to a telephon number. Thank you for your effort and thinking about us.
    But I find a problem, when someone calls me, I can not redirect the call to skype to use the subtitles.…

  15. allow me to turn off spell check

    Let me turn off spell check. It's an option on every app in the universe except Skype, and it's a person's own choice whether they want to look at red lines all day - whether they can spell or not. It's simply not acceptable to force things onto people.

    The female super hero emoticon is called SuperMum whilst the male one is called Man Superhero. Either make them both about their roles as parents, or call the female one 'Female Superhero'

  20. Default setting of basic system in Skype

    In a group call by a faculty, students join the call.
    By default, the speaker is off, and the Mic is on.

    This is exactly reverse of what is required.

    [Whenever the students join late, their surrounding noise will keep disturbing the entire lecture] .

    What is required?

    The speaker should be on by default, so every body can listen to the faculty, when they join, without specially making it on

    Every body's Mic should be off so that the noise from the surroundings of every student will not disturb the lecture.

    [After this modification, when the faculty opens the…
