Remarkable features of Skype

Skype for Windows

Went live a new version of Skype for Windows for which the developers unfortunately did not provided any changelog (well, except the usual “General fixes and improvements”). However, users complain that there is a bug in Skype for Windows, because of which they cannot specify custom ringtone for an incoming call, because settings are reset by default every time when Skype is restarted.

    I don't know why but these updates only bring bug fixes and improvements it's been a while since they changed a design a little bit i hope in next update there is something new with design or new option + fixes and some other improvements.

      Well, the biggest problem is that developers do not provide a changelog. I believe that each version comes out for a reason even if “it’s not visible” or they don’t write about it (for example, look at which officially includes only “Quality improvements and general fixes” but actually, among other things, it fixes the CVE-2017-9948 vulnerability).

      Antony is quite right!.. Seems a new release almost every week, however never anything new or exciting!... It's 2017 and I still can't change the colour of the font!

        Hi! I am certainly not sure, but I do not believe that developers are releasing new versions without any reason. I suppose that a lot of work is done under the hood and most users do not notice it (for example, upgrading audio codec from SVOPC to SILK then to NGC, or deploying security and bugfix patches).

        Regarding your wish, you need reach out to developers and convince them that this is a useful feature. They often fulfill the users’ wishes, so I do not see any problems to fulfill another one.

      Hi! Perhaps your problem is caused by this bug, but if still occurs, look here: Not receiving messages on Skype.
