  4. Access-list for Autoanswer and Autocam

    It is best that the autoanswer and autocam feature of skype can be set to work only when the contact is in the list of individual who can avail of autoanswer and autocam. This way, the privacy is still maintained for a specific set of individuals.

  6. Go on "Do not disturb" when OS is in Do not Disturb

    In macOS and presumably Windows, there is the option to go Do Not Disturb. It would be nice to have the option to change your Skype status to "Do Not Disturb" as well to notify team members that you're in Deep Work mode.

    Then have the option to go back to Available when Do Not Disturb is disabled in the OS.

  14. I need to see my interlocutor when I demonstrate my screen

    Skype version 8.63... Doesn’t allow you both: see your interlocutor and demonstrate your screen at the same time. It was good to see a reaction on what you showing to a person, don’t you think so?

  15. If you have Skype on more than 1 device you should be able to turn off the one your not using

    Turn off on the devices you are not using it because I loan my phone or tablet out and I will go off when another one does

  16. Skype 8.62.0.83 / Can't enable call bar to hide for viewing in Shared Screen mode.

    When I'm trying to see someone else's PC screen when the opposing user enables the "Share screen" mode, I can't completely see their taskbar in the Skype screen & the previous Skype version (8.61.0.87), the call bar auto hides itself.

    The current Skype version (8.62.0.83), doesn't seem to have an option or ability to hide that very same call bar that has the mic mute, video disable & call hang up buttons, on it.

  20. Remove everything from Full Screen

    8.62 now has that black bar at the bottom that won't fade away. Bring back the old days when everything would fade including my profile pic (unless I'm using my cam too) and just keep the skype watermark in the corner. Even the watermark had an option to be removed. I want a true full screen experience without all the clutter.
