    Cociuban,
    How in the hell can you send a video message in this new version. Been searching for 1 hour and can't find the damn button. Please help.

      Well, I think that it does not support this feature at all :-|

        So they removed the possibility to send video messages ? Can you confirm this please.

          Yes, it's true (except that I would say that they have not implemented it yet). IMHO, the new Skype is just a “stable beta version” which does not yet support several features.

      @Vivek,
      I am also unable to find this feature. I observed that administrator hasn't replied your comment. :D

        Oops! Sorry for that (blush)

        Unfortunately, this feature is not yet available in the new Skype. I wrote an article about this: Old features in the new Skype.

          Jayesh Dhandha,
          Thanks for the details :)

          It looks very shocking after seeing such features are missing in New skype. Send contact is the most needed feature.

          It is fine that you guys are upgrading the things, But at least we shouldn't remove the old features.
          Always value your old customers. :)

          Should this get fixed or I should downgrade my skype?

            Please note that this is an unofficial blog of Skype, and I do not work either at Skype or Microsoft. Therefore, if you want to send feedback to Skype developers, use the built-in form or visit official site.

            By the way, if you miss some important features in the new Skype, I think you should downgrade to version 7.40.0.151 and wait until the new Skype brings you all the necessary features.

    Hi,

    How do I change the position of screen notification for new skype version 8.13.0.3. I tried to drag the notification bubble, but it does not work.

      Hi! I may be wrong, but I suppose you can't do this (at least in Windows 7 and below). In the Windows 8 and above, maybe there are some registry hacks, but I'm not sure.

    Daniel,
    How do I install this?
    When installing it just says "use skype from windows store"

      Administrator,
      Try this: right-click on the 8.13.0.3 installer, choose «Properties», go to «Compatibility» tab, choose to «Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 8», and click «Save». Then run the installer again.

        Daniel,
        I just got information why it's not working to install on Windows 10.
        It's because it 8.* is not designed to work in Windows 10.
        Either use UWP or Classic.

          Administrator,
          Officially, it is. But as I said, you can bypass these restrictions by running installer in the compatibility mode. Please see my proof: install-new-skype-on-windows10.gif

    FLASH IS DEAD,
    Why I can't install this on Windows 10? Everytime I try to install, a message pops up saying "Please install Skype from the Windows Store for the best experience". I've tried to download from Windows Store, but the app design is always from version 7.40. I wanted the new visual from version 8. =/

    Matu,
    Hello there!

    I cannot find the configuration for keyboard shortcuts on this version. Does anyone know if the option has been removed?

    Thanks in advance :)

      Hi! Unfortunately, you're right — you can not customize Skype shortcuts in the new version. By the way, stay tuned, I'm preparing a list of features that are not available in the new Skype.

    lhenderson,
    Hi; with previous version, user showed active (green circle) at all times or until the user changed their status. With new version 8.13.0.3, this is no longer available. If the user is not typing in skype, they are shown as off line. How do you fix this???

      Administrator,
      Hi! Do you mean your own status or the status of your contacts? Anyway, I did not encounter this issue. Please check my screenshot: green-status.png

      Therefore, I would like to know if this issue occurs for all users. If so, do they see your real status? What's your operating system?

    How do I retrieve these contacts?

      Administrator,
      If you do not see your old contacts it means that you are logged on Skype under a different account.

          There is no font customization in the new Skype. You can only change the font size. Please read more about Old features in the new Skype and Skype shortcuts in the new version.

      The new Skype doesn't support this feature. But you can create a portable version (it doesn't update automatically).
