    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!

    - Petr

    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.

    You don't hear us. Everyone is saying one thing and you are just repeating another.

    You've made a mistake and really haven't admitted it.

    It's also essential if you have a big hi-res screen and the person you are talking to has a little one, otherwise your screen is too big for their little monitor :)

    We work to make Skype work seamlessly on each of the platforms where it’s available. Please do share specific feedback on integration we may not have nailed yet. It push us to innovate, problem solve, and really understand your needs. We love this kind of feedback!

    Here's a basic one for you Petr.

    I cannot see the contacts below my favourites on my laptop because the huge row size means only 11 contacts fit in the list on my 17" laptop screen.

    So I've selected COMPACT. Maybe that'll give me a row size like i have in excel. Nope - the row size is now 50 pixels, I've got 17 favourites on my screen, still can't see chats not from them.

    How about you make that 30 pixels or less instead, or add in 'VERY COMPACT' if for some reason you really like how spacious COMPACT is...?

    I am angry..

    It's like you are wilfully ignoring the spirit of the requests and hoping that squeezing in incremental improvements will make this all better.

    You've taking something painless that I used every day and turned it into something that disappoints for some unexplained reason? Who is this benefiting?

    We realize moving away from older versions of Skype is an inconvenience and we’re sorry for that. We wouldn’t be moving everyone forward if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. Watch this site for news about features we’re adding to the current version of Skype and reach out to @SkypeSupport on Twitter if you need help getting settled in the new app.

    Thanks all for all the comments and votes around this topic.

    Really - forced update today - ****** move. There's no sharing a window feature yet so I can't do screenshares from the 30" monitor to my colleagues using laptops, it's just unusable.

    Bye!
