  2. Dialing Bug

    Hello fellow Developers.

    Under the following premise, what happens when you have 2-step validation enabled to access your work account in microsoft at the URL https://login.microsoftonline.com/, it tells you to put username and password, then how is it configured the option that sends SMS to the phone number sends it or if you prefer make a validation call (dial from anywhere in the world), the call or SMS message validation is made and you enter your account.

    Now what happens if in Mexico specifically in Mexico City the numbers with the code 55 are finished and the code 56…

    In a group call we have quite a few members on different time zones and when 2 people are in the call and one logs out the call then shuts down which is annoying having to enter the command to start the call up again in the old build the call was kept up and running i would appreciate it being introduced into this build

  9. Ability to Record One Person

    The Skype recording is great, but I conduct interviews that are used for education/instructional purposes to students and they only need to see the person I'm interviewing. It would be ideal if there was an option to turn off the split screen and only record the person being interviewed.

  10. "Never mind" emoji

    We need newer Emojis. Shrug, never mind, anyways, and more enthusiastic hand gestures/ happy faces, etc. should be added... I cannot express myself properly right now. Also, we should be able to take pictures from Skype For Business and not have to download them to your device.

  12. Unlinking Skype from Microsoft or but transferring to another Microsoft account

    Is it technically impossible to unlink Skype account form Microsoft account, or ist it just an unwillingess of Microsft to do that. Many of us have the same issue and my opinion is that Microsoft is dooing nothing.

  13. Ensure that sign-in credentials are kept after updating

    Skype updates frequently. After every update it forgets my username and password and I have to re-enter them. This is very inconvenient

  16. Why I stopped using Skype

    I stopped using Skype because of a few issues

    1) I tried to make an account change of an old email address to a new one. I have to wait 30 days before I can get back into my account. This needs to be reduced to a shorter time frame like one week, with different methods of confirmation for security, message a code to the phone number on the account, KYC authorization and confirmation, Face recognition...etc

    2) Recording video for Skype on a Mac. This option is limited and needs more focus on this because power users like myself that…

  18. Kontakt zum Support durch Team anbieten, nicht zu vorgefertigte Antworten.

    Für viele Fragen brauchen Sie einen Support duch Menschen, mit denen man direkt sprechen kann.
    Diesen Support müssen Sie auf der Webseite klar angeben
    Ihre Seite ist zu unübersichtlich.
    Auch nach 3 Stunden Suchen habe ich keine Antwort.

  20. You really need to FIX the remove contact feature.

    I followed the instructions I have seen posted BUT contacts I have removed still show under MY CONTACTS.

    It makes this bad on a PC but even WORSE on a mobile device.
