  1. iOS edge

    I would like to have the option of using Microsoft Edge to open links in iOS Skype. Outlook for iOS gives the option, so I would like to see the same option in Skype for iOS. Thanks!

  3. Only group creators should be able to mute/remove other participants

    I have been using Skype for teaching online. There are many participants per group and we use video calls.
    It is a shame that Skype does not have the option for admins only (group creators) to be the only ones to control other people's microphones, group chat box and removing other participants.
    It has happened on numerous occasions that participants have been muting other people's mics, have removed them from group etc.
    This is really frustrating.
    Why can't there be an option that only the administrator can control everything and everyone?

  4. Instead of making the number next to chats say how many chats you got notifications in, let it say how many notification you have in total.

    Just let the chat notifications be the actual amount of notifications you got, instead of how many chats you got notifications in, because it throws me off, even though it is not important.

  5. LaTeX support in chat

    It would be nice to have support for LaTeX math in chat, e.g. in between two dollar signs, like $x^2 = 1$ as in usual LaTeX in-text formulae. If I may suggest, as Skype code is based on Electron, there is already a good JavaScript library that renders LaTeX in wide use: MathJAX https://www.mathjax.org/

  6. Reimbursement for lost access to paid services!!!

    I just spent two hours on chat to finally fix the problem of not being able to log in and not being able to find the right help articles that could fix that problem.... I was not able to access chat for the last several weeks and so I lost a month and a half of paid services, which I was told I cannot receive reimbursement for?! Extremely bad service. I have now discovered Zoom and there are other providers, so I may just have to leave Skype if this is true! Very sad that this would be the way…

  8. Prevent users from removing members of a group conversation in Skype

    Here inSpain, due to the current Covid-19 emergency, many schools started to use Skype for lessons, at least temporarily while evaluating specific software solutions.

    The problem is that students already familiar with Skype are having fun removing the other students from the call. In some cases, they are even removing the teacher.

    Would it be possible NOT to allow a User to remove another User/the Admin from a group chat and leave this option only to the Admin?

    Thank you!

  9. User friendly

    Too many problems that still need to be resolved. I find it unfathomable that Skype, by Microsoft (!), is so user UN-friendly. Dear Microsoft work on it asap or someone else will get it faster than you and you will lose your market share. Make an easy menu, give options of ringing sounds, of volume, decipher the differences of Skype name or user name, make entering a group chat possible by an easier way - especially if one is a little late entering the group (which i have found impossible sometimes) , have more pop-up menus , explain more, put…

  12. How can I resize video from caller to full screen?

    During video call with 21th users, How can I resize video from 1 caller to full screen.

    Возможно вы знаете ответ на мой вопрос:

    В беседе - 21 человек, у всех кроме одного камеры выключены. Я хочу видеть на весь экран видео с камеры этого собеседника, но вижу его видео только наверху в кружочке. Как это видео развернуть на весь экран?

  13. removing from call

    I think you should add a option to see which participant is muting or removing others or restrict removing and muting options only to admins

  14. Text color

    Color codes similar to HTML which would allow users to send messages with (multi) colored text - messages where the text is presented in various colors such as blue or red or rainbow.

  16. Appropriate Status when user is "On Call"

    It would be helpful feature if we show the proper status on Skype when user is on call.

    If I set my status as "Active" and I get call from someone on Skype or I call some on Skype, my status is still shown as "Active". It should get automatically get changed to "In call", so that other people come to know this person is on another call and wait for calling them.

  19. Profile name or username

    I've encountered a problem that requires your help. I am Asif Iqbal. At present, I am freelancing in graphics design alongside education. In the workplace, I have to communicate with domestic and foreign clients. That's why I chose Microsoft Skype as a mode of communication. I use the convenience of my self-banding (asifuix) so clients can easily find me! However I cannot change my Skype name (live: .cid.e309485a45ea9105). I need a username to match my own banding. I hope you give the right solution and cooperation.

  20. Knowing if a call will be placed right away or if a choice will be given first.

    Before I click on a button to place a call to one of my contact I want to know from the design of the button itself if I'll be given a choice of phone number(s) or Skype id or if the call will start immediately (because there is no choice with that identity / contact, only one possibility). Right now it is not possible to know except by going back and checking the profile.
