Can’t is a 4 letter dirty word. Has anyone else tried to check their voicemail with Skype 8.2? If so how do you do it and if you can please spell it out in more detail.

The thing is about the new version of Skype, you can't check your voicemail than the Skype Classic, you can check your voicemail on Skype Classic

It's great if the hotkeys are working fine, but I still can't understand why you consider it better. If the previous version of Skype offers the possibility of multiple chat windows but you can't use them for whatever reasons, nobody forces you to use multiple chat windows, so from your perspective it shouldn't matter.
On the other hand, if other users want to use multiple chat windows, this is possible in Skype Classic, but not possible in Skype 8 from what I understood, so the new version has a big disadvantage for them.

Actually I’m also using the windows versio of skype, the updated one  that came wiht my machien and navigating it with out the scrits is way way easy. It acts just like skype on the mac where you no longer have the chats in separate windows. I’v eactually alwasy wanted that to be gone as I cannot multi task. Go to and  check out my demo on the new skype for windows   10 I might even put it up on my mix cloud as well. I got the hang of it after maybe about 5 minutes. It is not that bad really. And I’m using no addons for nvda as far as I know to access the new features. The keyboard shortcuts even work fine.

I kindly remember you that your needs and preferences are not the need or preferences of all computer users.
If you are happy with the limited features offered by the new version of Skype is OK, but it might not be OK for other users.
If you consider Mac as beeing the best OS, then this means that it is the best OS for you, not for everybody. Other people may be forced to use another operating system because there are some applications they need to use which don't exist for Mac, or are not accessible etc.

It  works and works well. You only chat with one person at once anyway, and you do’t want too many resources to be taken up, so take it, or uninstall skype and never use it.

I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don’t mind that it is only 1 chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

OK, but then how it can be considered OK, or even acceptable?
We might accept this limitation and not start chatting with more than one person concomitently, but other people might start chatting us.
What can we do in that case? Can we distinguish somehow the source of chat messages? Can we decide to whom we want to type to if this thing happends?
The very bad policy of forcing us to use another worse application doesn't make me have the courage of trying Skype 8, see if I like it, and if not, return to Skype 7 at least for the next one month and a half, because I'm afraid that this might be impossible and I might need to start using the worse solution right now.

The matter of fact is that there is no possibility of more than one chat at the same time in Skype 8 therefore we cannot do anything!
I’m very sorry to let you know that I was forced to update Skype 8.25!

I understood that Skype 8 doesn't offer the possibility of opening separate
windows for separate chats. How can we solve this problem?

I believe it is both. I personally am loving skype 8. d I can do so so much
with it that I could not do wiht skype 7. The interface is very smooth and
easy to use.
