Crashes when I try to load large chat

I like to use Skype mainly to chat with a particular large group of people. Due to the amount of people, it can get rather busy, so lots of messages come in. However, I find that whenever I try to open it up on mobile I simply can't due to the fact it freezes after it loads up the chat (I'm lucky if it even DOES load) This makes me sad, because it's really the only thing I use Skype for so it's practically useless due to these awful bugs, and it feels like an overall poorly made app in terms of stability. However, it seems to work pretty great in smaller groups, so I'll be generous and give it 2 stars... It may seem low, but as an app purely made for talking to people. I'd expect to ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO TALK TO PEOPLE!

Cannot Block Unwanted Contacts

Recently I have been receiving unwanted contact requests by unknown people,who are also repeatedly sending uncomfortable messages.

There is no way to block these people, only delete them from your contacts WHICH DOES NOTHING.

Skype needs to get their act together and sort this out before a child happens respond to one of these people and something bad happens. Because once it happens, it will be too late.

Group video call missing

I've been using Skype for years now and always was very happy with it. However, my needs recently has changed and I need to use group calls - this is present although the number of participant could be bigger, and I need a group video calls and this feature is not part of this app for iPad or iPhone.
It would be wonderful if this addition can be made.
