  1. outlook contacts

    option to show outlook contacts, search and dial them needs to be implemented (currently missing from 8.28). This functionality is implemented in Skype Classic and works just fine.

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request. We have thought this through and due to other high priority engineering that the product needs we decided to prioritize other user-requested items for now. Please keep continue supporting this Idea and we will review it again later. I’ll let you know if anything changes.

  13. 通话界面如果能同时显示联系人列表和群信息就更好了。通话时,切换到别的app,Skype留在屏幕上那个界面占的区域太大了。

  16. 在旧版本的基础上加上录屏的功能

    旧版本很好用,新版本只是华丽的外表,并没实际用处,更多的是不方便!

  18. Native dialer on android

    Make it that skype can handle native calls and be the default dialer app on android. Go a step further and give it a "handoff" feature for calls using Wi-Fi, similar to Apple devices

  19. Saving All Chat History From Beginning To Now *&* Moving Forward, W/ The Ability To View Chat History Like Before.

    It is very important for many of us to be able to continue to have our chat history on Skype from the beginning to now and moving forward.. Along with the option to view history, like we did on Skype V7, by going to "Conversation" and "View History". This would allow us to go back where we needed, without going at a snail's pace. Whether that be going to the very beginning, a year, or a month. This was very efficient and helpful. Thank you.

  20. Organizing contacts the way we want in Favorites &, then, Skype keeping contacts in alphabetical order, like before. No suggestions, please.

    Let us be able to organize contacts the way we could in V7, especially with "Favorites". I have six in "Favorites" and I love being able to organize them from top to bottom, with who I need to talk to the most. Someone special is at the top and I'd like them to stay there, above anything, including suggestions. On Skype V8, Skype's suggestions were at the top and "Favorites" were underneath and not how we organized them, either, but all out of order. How it was organized in V7 was perfect. Thank you.
