  2. Separate Window for Screen Share and Video

    Please have separate windows for viewing video and content/screenshare. I want to be able to use multiple monitors to see video on one screen and the content on another.

  3. Text styles/colours/highlights

    That you can make text coloured in any colour and make text styles easier to use. also that you can highlight text

    Here are the ideas I would love to see:

    Idea 1:

    Put a B for bold, put a I for italic, put a U for underline and an S for strike.
    Put a highlighting button and choose what colour you want to highlight it with.
    Put a text colour thing and choose a colour.

    Idea 2:

    Use the & or § symbol to style/colour/highlight the text.

    e.g.
    §b/&b = bold
    §u/&u = underline
    §4/&4 = dark red
    §r/&r…

  4. Custom Emoticons / Emojis

    In discord you can create your own emojis for different servers, in this case, skype
    should have the ability to create custom emoticons for groups.

    If you don't know how it should work, here are 2 ways I would love to see.

    Idea 1:

    Upload an image for a static, and gif for a moving one.

    Idea 2:

    You will be able to make your own emoticons using a emoji creator type thing.

    Like you can choose skin colour, eyes, mouths, noses, face additions and more!

    Call it "Emoticon Customisation".

  6. Merge a Skype account with another exisiting Microsoft account

    I have a Skype account that is currently not merged to my Microsoft/Xbox Live account, and I am wondering if there could be a way for such a feature to be rolled out sometime in the future?

  7. i suggest to a code that gives you some so called "hacks" but make it super hard to find the code.

    i suggest to a code that gives you some so called "hacks" but make it super hard to find the code. Also, make it extreme badge for someone who gets the code. And..make the "hacks" is good (put the hacks code into the "Share other links for others to join)

  8. Aumentare le Notifiche lettura da 20 persone a molte di più

    Salve, ho un gruppo di oltre 20 persone e quando scrivo non vedo più le notifiche di lettura (cosa che accadeva sotto le 20 persone), è possibile elevare dalle attuali notifiche lettura messaggio da 20 a 50 60 100.... l'importante è aver la possibilità di vedere chi legge i miei messaggi.
    Grazie

  10. participant list display

    when the number of participants increases, then we could +2 like that apart from some of the participant being shown in default view of group call. But if we click that +2, it shows the entire participant list instead of those participants which are not visible in the defalt view.

    it would be good if we can show only that 2 particpants when we click +2.

    also there can be another icon which shows the entire participant list.

  11. Sharing of individual screens rather than the entire desktop screen

    The updated version of Skype does not support sharing individual screens or windows but rather just the entire desktop. This is not a good idea specifically if you are using Skype for teaching. This could create confusion for the users and at the same time pose a greater risk on data privacy of the one sharing the screen. Please return it ASAP!

  12. Save files inside folder which name match either chat name or group name

    It would be great to save files inside folder which name match with chat name or group name, currently either we have to choose where to save or it saves inside Skype folder, the feature I requested allow me to save files into a folder structure, this way files from different-2 clients or chats don't mix up, it can be a optional feature but this would be very useful.

  13. Enviar mensagem de voz pelo Xbox ONE/Series !!!

    Atualmente não tem a opção de enviar mensagem de voz pelo Xbox, isso e ruim pois digitar no controle e chato e demora muito. Acredito que o Skype deveria dá um upgrade no xbox ! agradeço a todo que colaboram com a ideia.

  18. Add the option to modify keyboard shortcuts

    I use skype allot and on different devices, so with so many different keyboard layouts sometimes it is hard to reach for example: if i want to hang up the call by using shortcuts, on wider keyboards it is harder to press ctrl + shift + H. So by adding the option to change which keys i wanna use for a specific action, then it makes it easier and more convenient to use them.

  19. Add "toggle read receipts " keyboard shortcut

    It would be very helpful to be able to easily toggle the "read receipts" using a few key strokes instead of having to access the cumbersome settings window.
