  3. Active call window/modal

    Add an option in settings to switch off the active call modal.
    I.e. When I'm on a call or group call and I switch away from my Skype screen the small active call modal is always there. It is of no use to me, I understand it may be use to some so if this could be an option to show it or not, that would be marvellous.

  5. Ability to share screen with computer sound on Mac devices

    It would be really awesome if the Skype developers could implement the ability to share computer audio along with the screen share to Mac users, as windows users already have this feature. Especially in the current climate of the pandemic and lockdown, more people are inclined to watch movies and play games together. I know the popular app to use is Zoom nowadays, but personally, my partner and I have noticed Skype has been having better performance when it comes to screen share (less lag when watching videos, movies, etc). I hope they add this feature for Mac users one…

  6. share ipad screen while skyping on mac

    A nice feature of Zoom is the ability to run the zoom meeting on my mac, and share my iPad screen during the zoom meeting either through a wifi connection or when the iPad is connected to the Mac. I would love to have this feature on Skype.

  11. Subtitle

    The subtitle feature works great, but would it be possible to have a transcript of the subtitles saved somewhere and available at the end of the call? I would happily pay extra for such a feature

  12. voice comments

    I want 'voice comments' in skype, when you press e.g. Ctrl+Mute, all you say into the "muted" microphone is recorded into a separate track -- so anyone can leave comments they can listen to again later, but not disturbing the speaker's speech flow (a lecturer, maybe) during the process (of communication or lecture). Thanks.

  13. calling

    when you're in a call and another person calling in the same time please add ❎ close window to that calling window otherwise it is a problem when you in a screen sharing that call hiding some of the screens but if you add close button easily we can close with one click

  14. Play a video with its original sounds during share screen

    I would like my phone, which is android 6.0.1 for now, to be able to perform a share screen where I can play a video with its original sounds. Currently, it does not play it with its sound. Presenting a video is part of my teaching methods to my students. One more thing I wish is allowing me to mute or unmute myself during video screen sharing, like Zoom on a computer. I use Skype weekly.

  16. Mute all participants microphones at once

    Please , if someone is the host in "Meet Now", it would be great to have the option to mute all participants at once until you want them to talk. It's annoying to give a speech or a class and to have particpants permanently turning on their microphones and interrupting.

  17. Block all unknown/private number calls

    Like Android, have an option for users to block all unknown numbers/private numbers from calling. This would block all numbers from calling the user and only allow contacts listed in the user's contact list to call the user.

  18. Fix Together Mode and Speaker View's weird bugs

    Thanks for the together mode but it has this weird thing that on a moderated group any general member activating together mode activating it for the entire meeting. I have 20/30 people in the conference and using white board. Any single one opening together mode messing up everyone's view mode. But this feature should be like view only for the person activating it right? as in MS Teams? Also the Speaker View gets stuck most of the time to a person whether s/he is speaking or not, which is very crazy in a conference situation. I am in a situation…

  19. Chat view mode for sent videos

    It would be a handy feature if sent videos didn't force the entire screen to be taken up when viewing them. It's difficult to listen to and view the background call when videos are played back. In addition to this, it would also be nice to include a mute function if not proper volume and playback controls for those videos, as it gets in the way of calls quite a lot of the time.
