  1. Removing the names of past contacts from Skype

    I have deleted a contact from my Skype account. The name doesn't exist in my iPhone's contact list as well. The contact no longer appears in the Skype contact list in both iPhone and Windows desktop. However, it does appear in Calls -> All -> People in Windows Desktop version and also under contacts -> All in iPhone version of Skype.

    I would appreciate if this feature gets included in Skype such that one easily can remove the names of past contacts from their Skype app.

  5. remove the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen

    i’m not a fan of the black bars at the top and bottom of the skype calls. it makes it hard to see the person i’m on call with and it’s not as attractive as the floating icons were. i thought that if i hadn’t touched the mouse for a bit that the bars would go away but they’ve remained and its a bit stressful and it’s an inconvenience to me and i’m sure it is for others. i hope you consider changing it back to the floating icons on the next windows update.

  7. Bring back the old function of deleting contacts

    There are more than 800 unnecessary contacts on my skype. , Please add a function as in earlier versions of Skype, So that I can delete all contacts at once in a second !, Because of these contacts, Skype hangs and the application slows down. , Return this function! So that I can select all contacts and delete everything in a second with one click.
    I only have access to delete one contact at a time !, It's awful and inconvenient, it's crazy! It will take me all day !, Please return the function so that I can delete all…

  10. Have color change on newly received messages and float to top of the chats

    Want to ensure new messages are grouped at the top in time order so easy to find and then also have a colored text to highlight that they need attention.

  14. All other chat/calling platforms seems to make finding contacts easier / possible.

    All other chat/calling platforms seems to make finding contacts easier / possible. In skype it is always a struggle to find somone you know, so I tend rather to use zoom.

  19. 2 factor authentication

    I know that Skype already have a 2FA but its not really effective because people can still log in to your account if they know your password and your 2FA will not notify you to accept or deny the log in request.

    So i think its a good idea if the 2FA can be used to notify us and let us accept or deny our log in attempt that may not come from the real owner of the account.

  20. Personalised Skype name

    I think it would help a lot if our skype name can be personalized. That way it'll be easier for us to share and add new people on skype.
    Plus numbers and random code is just not appealing bcuz i can come up with a lot of catchy name to use as my skype name
