  1. Autoresponder

    It would be great to have an autoresponder feature, so if you were away on holiday and someone messaged to you can have an autoreponder to say you are away. Like how email autoresponders work.

  2. Skype Notifications in multiple monitor configuration should follow the focus. In my Linux Skype version 8.34.0.78 it does not.

  3. Allow me to delete my contact information from another user

    I have occasional one-off conversations with people that I don't want to have future access to personal information such as my name. It scares me that even though I have deleted these people from my contact lists after my one and only call with them, these strangers can now see my full name and have my Skype ID permanently saved if they want it. With my first and last name, they can cause all sorts of problems for me. If I had realized the other person would have permanent access to my name and Skype ID after just one call…

  9. Skype LIGHT

    Current version of skype is extremely heavy. I loved Skype v7 - lightweight, gets things done, extended features for camera adjustments, everything one could dream about. With obligatory Skype v8 it is a nightmare, at times I can't type a short message cause it's just doesn't respond. I'm a developer myself, if you need any help, please drop me a line. If there's any chance we can resurrect v7 I'm totally in.

  17. Give us an Option to Unmerge Microsoft and Skype accounts

    I just can't understand how the idiots working with this company could be stupid and brainless enough to actually remove the option of unmerging a Skype and Microsoft account. Literally, WHY??? Please for the love of god put it back, everyone's getting notifications for accounts they are not a part of in my family due to accidental merging and it's . Please just put the option back. You don't want your application to be constantly berated by everyone? Then listen to these *** feedbacks and put that option back because everyone hates you for removing it in the first place
