  5. automatically route outgoing calls from phone through skype

    Much like google voice- it would be great for the option to route international calls through skype and use skype credit instead of the insane international calling rate with carriers. Shouldn't have to specifically enter the skype app to do this.

  6. remove my profile pic from video screen when my cam is not on

    remove my profile picture from top right hand corner when in video chat when my cam is not on. As my cam is not good i usually don't turn it on but watch and talk to the other person, but now I get my profile picture in the corner when in video chat. This didn't happen in the old version and ruins the view. I don't need to see my picture as I already know who i am. My eyesight isn't good so I often record the chat and show on my huge tv and having my pic on screen…

  15. Problem with the camera in MacOS Mojave

    Skype does not find my camera since I updated to MacOS Mojave, even after re-installing Skype. My camera works with all other applications, but not with Skype. Anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?

  17. Why can't I change the screen size to show both me and the person I am contacting. Half screen for both used to be available now not.

    Why can't I have the half screens as before ? the instructions and guidance in the programme are useless.
    Also - why is it not possible to easily change the text size in messages - as it was before microsoft took it over. It is more difficult and more unwieldy to use. SO far - alll bad news - so please give me a solution to this.

  19. 通话界面如果能同时显示联系人列表和群信息就更好了。通话时,切换到别的app,Skype留在屏幕上那个界面占的区域太大了。
