  4. Recording all Skype calls, not just Skype to Skype.

    I used to be able to record all Skype calls, not just Skype to Skype. G-Recorder had a great application that did just that, but since MS took over Skype, G-Recorder could not longer support itself. The new version of Skype won't allow the use of G-Recorder, so now I can't do ALL call recording. In my profession, this is very badly needed.

  5. Merge accounts

    Bring back the possibility to merge accounts. I had a skype address. Now I have a MS account and another Skype address linked to it. It would be nice to be capable of merging them. This function is not available now, I will have to delete one of my accounts, lose some contact.

  7. Skype for Teaching -- whiteboard, etc...

    Give an additional module to the basic Skype , and call it 'skype for teaching' with whiteboard function and other functions that may be useful for people using Skype for teaching , but NOT using the business version as that is not specific enough in scope / purpose to be used for Teaching / Tuition over skype.

  9. Video Call small window buttons

    During video call, when other than the skype window is focused and the small video call window appears, the small buttons (mic, camera, end call, share screen) would be nice if they appear only when cursor move there and not fixed buttons. Fixed buttons block the content of what we are looking at.

  11. Show when a contact is on a call and therefore "busy".

    I would like Skype to show when a contact is on a call and therefore "busy". This way I know if I send a message, they might not respond right away. It would also useful when they don't set their Status to Do Not Disturb, but are on a call.

  12. Barrierefrei Seh-Behinderung

    Barrierefrei ist die neue Skype Version gar nicht. Es gibt sehr viel Menschen mit Seh-Behinderung.
    1,- Unheimlich wichtig wäre das die Grüne und Rote "Telefonsymbol" erhalten bleibt. Es ist für schwach sehenden ohne Hilfe nicht mehr Möglich zu telefonieren mit Skype!

    2,- Warum sehen wir nur Namen und die Profilbilder von Kontakten nicht mehr, wenn wir aus der liste jemand auswählen? 3,- Wieso wird der Chat schreib-Zeile immer kleiner? Diese Änderungen machen aus dem gern genutzten Skype eine nutzloses App.
    Ps. Automatische - Anrufannahme funktioniert bei Windows, Pc/Laptop nicht wenn das App-Fenster nicht geöffnet ist, auch wenn diese durch Hintergrund…

  15. Being able to print the copy of the Skype conversation for your records

    Would love to print the copy of my Skype conversations for the records, Skype should really have this feature because these calls count as phone calls and people need to have proof they spoke with each other via Skype

  19. Sometime the image is flipped upside down. So there must be feature to adjust image like 'Rotation-left, rotation-right' etc.

  20. Screen share

    I would like to be able to share my screen without it taking up the other viewers’ full screens. Specifically, I would like the option to have my picture in the grid replaced by my screen share and not have the screen share take over the chat.
