  1. Custom Calling Ringtone

    Hi, I'm very proud of skype and the way it outstands in the meetings market but there's an issue I would like to talk about. So I have been using skype ever since it was created and I have also been using the custom ringtone feature. But now it's gone and I get confused because I talk to a lot of people via skype but my family does so, so we never know whose computer is ringing. Thank you .

  6. Automatically call answer with locked pc screen or the display turned off

    For disabled people or just to let watch your room or what is looking your webcam (for example your pet). It's important that the function answer automatically incoming calls can work when windows is locked. Actually if the PC is locked or the display is turned off the function answer automatically incoming calls doesn't work anymore. Thanks.

  8. Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work the way it should.

    Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work properly. If shows some random gray boxes as well as with overlay windows as gray boxes too, although the window below is getting shared. This is weird that the same feature works perfectly on MSTeams but not on Skype. Please correct the layers. This is very important for my current presentation scenario.

  9. Calling features

    Like Discord people should be able to lower or higher someones volume. You use to be able to end the ringing for different memebers of a group, the feature has been removed in the last few years. When you mute a group you shouldnt still be getting calls, that's the whole point of muting a group or person, to not receive notifications from them. On do not disturb I still get get calls popping up and so do other people I've asked. Given how big Skype is and how many people report the same issues or similar issues you would…

  11. See your own subtitles

    When you turn on subtitles, you only see others' subtitles, but I think it would be better if you could see your own subtitles. This way you could see what others see.

  16. Breakout rooms for class debate or conversation

    I'm a language educator and in language classes we do a lot of pair work, or sometimes up to four participants in the conversation or debate group. The teacher must be checking on the pairs or groups to see how their doing and provide assistance. Having an easy feature to separate participants in breakout rooms would be awesome.

  17. please please PLEASE bring back the background it is not in the latest version and skype updates automatically so i cannot get it back :(

    every one knows about the background issue... In the new update that feature was deleted and now we can "share articles" with fellow skype users. I feel that should be part of skype business and the background option should still be available. as you all know, skype usually updates automatically so i am not able to get this feature back. PLEASE BRING IT BACK WHEN A NEW UPDATE IS AVAILABLE!
