    Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of youtube and pixiv links

  3. customisable ringtones (again)

    Please please please, implement customisable ringtones! It's been requested for ages and nothing is happening. What's more the only ringtone itself is arrhythmic. It's a bit of a "heck it, will do" attitude.

  5. Camera test

    Please add a test audio/video feature so I can line my shot up before an important call/interview. Doing it during a call is highly unprofessional and can make a bad impression.

  7. Personal Message for incoming calls

    I'm in Communications so it is rather important when media people call that they hear my name and my voice so they know they've reached the correct number as they are often on deadlines.

  8. automatic notifications

    Hello I would like to suggest automatic notifications. This feature would be great to put a general reply message when you are away from Skype. Example would be a vacation notice or out of office reply.

  11. Being able to see participants to a call when sharing a power point presentation

    This is not a new idea it used to be normal. When sharing a power point slide show (full screen) it would be good to be able to still see the participants to the call in a small window in the corner of the screen.

  14. 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.

    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
