  3. Change Skype Name!

    Why can't I change my Skype name??? It's ridiculous. The "live" account name was chosen for me based on the email I had at the time. I've since gotten divorced and it's embarrassing that people can see that old name associated with my account! I've had the MS support people tell me that people can only see it when they view your profile, as if that's supposed to make me feel better?! People CAN see it, and HAVE mentioned it to me. The whole point is I don't want to be associated with that name AT ALL... it was a…

  5. future/option to automatically answer "after 3 rings"

    Hi! As everyone now has multiple devices such Desktops/Laptops and mobile devices.

    Please consider adding to the future
    Calling > Advanced > Answer incoming calls automatically
    To add if possible an extra future/option to answer like "after 3 rings"

    This will be highly convenient for people to at least informed for the call before it is answered automatically from another device.

    Thank you!

  6. Please have Canada added in the list of countries for which number could be provided. Right now we have to select US.

    As more and more immigrants are travelling to Canada, a virtual Canadian number is required. Please add that option.

  9. Turn off the useless noise reduction

    the noise reduction doesn't work properly and renders Skype useless.
    If there is any background noise, cars, children, helicopters, music on the strereo, background conversation, Skype mutes the outgoing audio -
    THIS IS THE OPPOSITE OF NOISE REDUCTION

    Microsoft took a great app and have made it worse, and then ignored complaints. Put Skype back to V7 when it worked.

  12. Remove all but presenter from view in group chats

    I'd like to use Skype group chats for educational webinar presentations, but I need to maintain the confidentiality of participants. It would help if the image and identities of all but the presenter could be removed or hidden by the presenter.

  13. Stop trying to turn Skype into a modem MSN messenger and just return it to a perfectly good Voice and Video platform.

    Skype 'was' a great platform / app that focused on quality audio and video.

    Now that Microsoft owns it, it's slowly turning into a modern MSN messenger.

    It now has far too many bells and whistles, but little focus on the core elements.

    Like..

    Ensuring audio is clear and can be routed to nice headset, for clearer call quality.

    If I'm calling a client, it is VITAL that they hear me clearly and more importantly that I can clearly hear every fine detail of the conversation.
    If I miss something important, it could cost my company thousands to put right.

  14. Add "Share to Skype" in Windows "Snip and Sketch" app

    In Windows Snip and Sketch app, I can share screens shots to lots of apps , but not Skype.

    Between them, I hope Microsoft's Windows group and Skype team can find a way to fix this.

  16. Have a test audio and video button next to notifications

    Need a button next to notifications that allows user to quickly look at their audio and video settings. Needs to be more convenient and quick since not hearing them or them not hearing you is the most important thing to this program.

  17. warn no audio during call

    When on a call and when they can hear you but you can't hear them, why can't Skype figure that out? The idea is that you actually want to talk to the other person. So unmute the microphone's on both sides or at the very least WARN them their mic is muted or has no audio.

  19. Block user

    If I block a user on Skype, they can still see my account as well as send me messages. Skype currently hides their messages from me. I would like to see them completely blocked. Unable to view my account or send messages to me.
