  5. Cortana integration

    Cortana should be opt-in only and the option to remove or opt-out available.

    It's that simple.

  8. Remove the "Ongoing call" notification after a call is finished.

    After finishing a skype desktop to skype desktop call I get a notification on skype lite for android that says "Ongoing call".

    I suggest that this notification is removed after the call is finished.

    Yes, this is a bug report in the form of a Skype idea.

  10. being able to turn on your video and your screen at the sametime, so the other person can see your screen and face at the sametime

    Have the ability to turn on your video and share your screen at the same time, so the other person can still see you, but also see your screen.

  12. Start video automatically when answering a call

    have a Samsung tablet just for Skype.

    My mother has dementia and cannot operate any controls.

    Her Skype is set to answer video calls automatically.

    The trouble is that her video is always switched off, so I can never see her.
    yPlease enable video send in Skype when a call is automatically answered.

  15. PRINT option

    worst skype version! please bring back the feature where I can open the image on a 3rd party app so I can print it directly without saving it first...or you can add a print option. or you can just bring back the previous version.. you don't need to upgrade or DOWNGRADE.. previous version works just fine..

  16. Add Do-Not-Disturb. Skype does not respect the iPhone DND, which is not good.

    Since Skype does not respect the iPhone DND settings, we need a way to block callers during specified times.

  17. Refine your compromised account detection system.

    Non-compromised accounts of English as a Second Language tutors of RareJob Inc. who use personal skype accounts in contacting students who use personal accounts are being suspended/deactivated for sending contact requests.

    Their line of business via Skype should not be violations of the Fair Use Policy.

    RareJob Inc. Can be considered as one of your loyal customers for 11 years and counting.

    You already messed up with the UI. Will you also mess up the usage itself of Skype?

  18. Ability to copy numbers again

    I get a lot of calls from numbers that I need to register. In the last version I was able to simply copy the number from the top of the screen. in this version you seem to be trying to go out of your way to hide the number so I can't use skype for my job. Please add that back. For god's sake you can't even right click in the recent calls tab
