  8. When a member join and leave the call and again if he want to join back he need to request and any of member in the call can accept it

    it is being difficult to know who is on call and who is not after a member join the call and leave e suddenly having an option to join back will help to not project a confidential data

  9. Please allow me to change my Skype username

    Allow us to change our Skype username without having to delete our Microsoft account. I'm a transgender man and my Skype username is still my female birth name, I hate it, want it gone, but unless I'm willing to delete my whole Microsoft account then I'm not able to, please fix this for all LGBTQ+ Community members

  10. Merge calls on Skype for Windows 10

    Users are unable to merge someone in an existing call using Skype for Windows 10, but this very helpful feature is available on the stand-alone version.

  11. Popped out calling window

    It would be very helpful if a user could detach the current calling window on a pop-up window. This will allow the user to have the shared-screen/videos open in one window and continue to chat with somebody else on a separate chat window. It will definitely help users using multiple screens

  14. abonnement

    Hello,
    It would be good if we could choose to use the Office 365 minutes instead of a paid subscription.
    Thank you.

  16. VIew more people vidoes on screen at the same time. 4 people is small. Most other video calling apps can show up to 16 or more!

    It seems that you can only view 4 video feeds on screen at once when in a call with many people. 4 people is small number. Most other video calling apps can show up to 16 or more! Skype should increase the number of people that you can view at once.

  17. Allow ranking of Skype Ideas by number of votes

    When searching if others have complained about the same issue, you give no option to rank the ideas by votes, meaning that votes are spread out over an infinite number of potentially similar demands. This is such an inefficient way of doing things. There should be a better way of returning results, such that people aggregate their votes, meaning they get heard better. Except if you are avoiding that!

  18. Save passwords and usernames for ALL accounts! (with option to not save)

    What is the point of asking you if you want to have your username/password remembered, if it gets forgotten once you sign out? If you have different ID's, you need to enter ALL THE DETAILS each time you switch back and forth. Seriously, please fix, I am not the only one complaining!!!

    You can have an option for those who don't want that info saved.

  20. Scrollbar area for call history (including chats and vmail) on Skype app is too small if caller is not in Contacts

    Scrollbar area for call history (including chats and vmail) on Skype app for windows 10 is too small, approx. 3/4 inch high. Above is "Invite to skype" taking up almost the entire page. This only occurs on calls made from callers not in contact list and on the Windows app. When using https://web.skype.com/ on Chrome the scroll window is almost 1/2 the page.
    this occurs only when I receive a call from someone not in my contact list. If on the list, the page is completely scrollable. If not on the list, only the received calls, chat, messages are scrollable…
