    Thank you all for sharing your ideas! We have a lot of great feedback from you and we really appreciate it! We love the passion!
    We used to categorize your submissions with lists of multiple requests, however we’re overwhelmed now. Going forward we will only accept submissions with single requests. It will help us to better prioritize which features we will work on next and understand what is most important for you.

    Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Skype!

    TL;DR - Make Skype 7 work again.

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    The original "Bring back split view" thread was marked as "complete" even though it is only available in the Windows 10 app, not the desktop version.

    I have added a new ticket "Bring back split view in all versions", to highlight that there is still work to do and ensure that this issue is still visible.

    If you wish to vote for it and comment, you can find it here: https://skype.uservoice.com/forums/914527-welcome-to-skype-ideas/suggestions/36182710-bring-back-split-view-for-all-versions

    Peter Skillman demonstrated this on Twitter back in August. I asked him about it again yesterday, and he replied that it has been released to "insiders" for testing.

    Plus:
    - Settings to disable animations and emojis.
    - Settings to control notifications properly.

    Translation:

    Restore Skype 7's interface and some features

    1. I hope that skype 8 can share system sound independently.
    2. Now the skype 8 chat interface, not good-looking, the background color is too dark, the font color is light. In this case, I want to select some of the text, I can hardly see what I selected. The original skype 7 chat interface is very simple and practical.
    3. I often don't search my contacts and groups.
    4. skype 8 can't reference messages to other groups
    5. On skype 8, if I block some group messages, it doesn't show me how many messages I don't see. The skype 7 will be displayed with a hollow circle. It is recommended to restore this feature.
    6. When I was talking on a group, I couldn't see who was talking. It is recommended to restore this feature of skype 7.
    7. After creating the group, everyone is now an administrator. It is recommended to restore the function of skype 7.
    8. The link to the group name cannot be clicked directly. The original skype 7 is fine.

    Translation:

    0:101, the page is white, looking at the blur is not clear before.

    2, the connection above the group name can not be directly clicked in, but also copied out, some trouble.

    3, send audio, you must compress, or you can not download, before the direct send, you can download directly.

    4, want to see the previous chat, search is not convenient, some trouble.

    5, sharing the skype sound, sharing the speech, others can not hear, but also need to modify to speak, it is not convenient.

    6, before the skype group can be classified, and now there is no such function, and some groups can not search.

    7, when you log out of skype, the next time you log in, you also need to find the skype number, before the low version, log in directly, enter the password, you can't do it now.

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    Translation:

    1, the friend page slide progress bar is always a jump, very inconvenient.

    2, plus friends no prompts, not good friends, like the original version.

    3, the history message search function is gone, very inconvenient. I really want the search function inside the original group call.

    4. The path selection of the file download is desired to be customized.

    5, multi-person chat, do not show who is currently chatting, very troublesome. How many people join the chat can be viewed in accordance with the kind of Apple computer.

    6, the chat window hopes to expand, or typesetting can go up and down, or around the transfer.

    7, the group name contains the link, the old version of SKYPE can also be opened, but the new version of the link can not open up

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    Translation:

    1. When searching for contacts in the border, there is no previous version shortcut. If the keyword input is too small, it will not be found.
    2, the border has no past beauty
    3. The accepted documents cannot be directly dragged out.
    4, too many contacts, I hope to have classification function
    5, in the previous version, you can search the SMS records in each contact, now can not

    This is available on 8.37.0.98, and possibly other versions. For me, it's hidden in Settings > Calling > Advanced > Answer incoming calls automatically.

    Over the past few months you were asking us to improve Skype statuses. We have heard your feedback loud and clear and we plan to make status messages an integral part of your presence. Check out the link below for more details. I’ll post an update when it’s available.

    Most of the settings for configuring notifications have gone. Skype 7 had separate options for each type of notification. The new version does not.

    It's like wearing mittens where you used to have gloves - all your fingers have to work together.

    Just the option to turn it off would be a start. Ideally, a set of options would be nice:

    - Hide completely
    - Show but don't animate
    - Show and animate

    The ability to change its size and/or color to a really light grey (like the old subtle typing indicator) would be good, too.

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    Still not available on 8.37.0.98.

    More important than ever now the typing indicator is a huge blue squiggle rather than a subtle grey pencil.

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    The big wiggly thing is annoying. All the animations are annoying. Give people the option to turn them off.

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    At least make this an option. It's annoyingly distracting.

    Sean Ellis supported this idea  · 
    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    All of these things should be options.

    Sean Ellis commented  · 

    The old one was understated and was not obtrusive. If I have the Skype window open to the side of my main work when someone starts typing the big blue wiggly line is very distracting.

    For many people, this is fine. But like so many other things, we are suddenly missing the option to turn it off.

    "No options" is not an option.
