no sound notification when skype contact comes online

Skype version 8.36.0.52 Previous ver. played a sound when contact came online. Is that no longer possible? I see nothing in settings about it.

hello robert808-

Check this out-

How to Fix Skype Audio Not Working in Windows 10

I know it's for Win 10 but it should still apply to Win 7.

Does it help?

Thanks for the suggestion. It rings when call comes in and can hear the caller. So there is no overall audio problem. Just no short sound when contact comes online. Maybe this feature was deleted with newer version.

Active now

I don't know if there is a visual as it might have appeared when was away. I do remember in the past ver. a small box appeared at bottom right of desktop lasting a few seconds. I'm using Skype version 8.36.0.52 now. I guess one can look at the Active Now list. I will try that next time online with someone.

I don't use Skype, although I have it installed. I tryed to log in some I could look at the Options but it wouldn't recognize my password and try to change it was a big hassle.

I found a blog at Microsoft from August, 2017 where a bunch people had the same question. The question wasn't answered. Here it is, for what it's worth-

not receiving audible call notifications on skype - Microsoft Community

Here's a more recent one. Although it's for a MAC, it's appears to also be applicable to Win 7, based on your comment.

No sound when receiving instant messages - Microsoft Community

There is supposedly the ability to select if you want to hear a sound with a notification in the Notification settings.
