    We hear you. We love Skype version 7 too. We’re working to build the Skype experience you’ve come to depend on for so long on today’s platforms for today’s user. It would be impossible to bring back the full catalog of features available in previous versions of Skype all at once, our engineering systems just don’t work that way. We are committed to evolving the current Skype experience to match your needs over time. As we release new Skype features, we’ll update this site. You can also follow @Skype and @SkypeInsider on Twitter for the latest news too.
    Thank you all for your feedback.

    Good news! Skype version 8 now supports sharing not only your current location but any location on a map. There are two ways you can find this depending on what device you are using.
    On your Desktop Skype app simply select the Location icon on the bottom right, next to where you usually type your messages.
    On Mobile (iOS and Android) Skype app select the + button on the bottom left and you'll find the Location icon there.
    Clicking on the Location icon will open a page where you can see you current location before sending it or search for any location you'd like to share (for example: the park you'll be meeting your friends at, the restaurant you're going to, etc).

    Try it out and let us know how you feel about it.

    Some of the most consistent feedback we’ve received from you has to do with sounds and how you are notified about the goings on in Skype 8. We understand that all of these things are important for you and we are working on it.

    Thank you for your patience
    - Petr

    Be able to have custom ringtones as I don't like the current selection
