  2. Simplify login!

    Simplify login!
    1. In ver. 8 when you log in you got a “welcome /splash screen” that don’t do anything, now I have to go to 3 windows just to log in should be one! Pretty please, remove it!
    2. Make skype remember my “live” account like it does with my Skype account (I got a dropdown list with the Skype account’s I used on a PC, but not the “live” accounts, it would be really convenient if it remembered the LOOOONG :) “live” account , not just the short Skype accounts) It would make switching between accounts easier, and/or…

  3. Always On Top (compact chat window) option - so I can work on another full-screen app while still seeing chat with co-worker.

    If chat window can be made small and float to front (AKA "always on top") then I can work on a full-screen tool (IDE, graphics design tool, large doc editor) while still being able to see what a colleague is typing. I should still be able to minimize the window to the taskbar, and I should still see some visible notification when new chat text arrives while the window doesn't have the input focus. In my desktop context I often have the chats open on a second screen, but I don't tend to bring a second screen when I am…

  4. Integrate Stereo Audio

    Skype should integrate Stereo Audio for musicians / creatives looking to collaborate and add depth to the conversation using stereo microphones / direct audio ins. Zoom voice call currently supports this and I think it would be a revolutionary addition for many collaborating creatives such as myself who give lessons and consultation over Skype.

  7. Add other languages to Skype

    Hi
    I'm a Persian native and I suggest in languages section adding the Persian option. It's relatively easy and even I can help you with that, though by knowing Microsoft I'm sure that's really ready for you.
    Thanks

  8. Skype needs to have top bottom split screen view for video calls and messages when the window is narrow.

    In Skype 7 at any given time you're able to see the chat field while seeing the video call. In Skype 8 this is only the case sideways when the window is wide. When you make the window narrow you can only have one or the other. This needs to be fixed asap.

    For Skype android this should also be implemented. I'm regularly typing and talking at the same time. Sometimes just typing but still broadcasting video just to let someone see me. It's very cumbersome now.

  9. 查看消息不方便

    查看信息也比较不方便,群组消息和联系人消息不好区分,有些信息也不是按照时间顺序排列,容易忽略一些信息

  14. keep Skype 8 backwards compatible with 7

    I have my contacts stored in a local Outlook data file. with Skype 7 I can directly call contacts from Outlook (fat client) via a right mouse click. This feature has gone in version 8 (desktop version)
    In earlier days, backward compatilbility was an evidence

  18. Skype 安全性太差,连最基本的安全锁都没有,如果电脑手机丢失,Skype 里面的联系人信息与其他用户隐私数据与完全公开没什么两样,你们连最基本的用户隐私安全都不能保障,是不是有点说不过去啊?

    建议增加 PIN 码

    你们这收集建议里面强制收集用户信息就不合理,虽然你们写了“可以随时退出”,但是数据已经收集过去了,我还能自己从你们的数据库里面删掉吗?电子邮箱可以给你,姓名和IP地址让人很不舒服,本身电子邮箱就可以确认一个人的身份了,你们还要求那么多,是不是不合适呢?

  20. a way to know if i'm being blocked or not a contact to my skype contacts. Why waste my time with someone not wanting to skype with me?

    It would help to know when you have been blocked or no longer a contact with someone on your contact list. If your messages arent getting through because you are no longer a concern of that contact, get a clue and dont send to them. This way, you dont waste time, and can clear up your contact list.
