  2. Ripristinare gestione amministratore chat di gruppo

    Per la didattica a distanza ho utilizzato skype per fare alcune chat di gruppo con i miei allievi. Ma come al solito c'è qualche "Buontempone" che si diverte a rimuovere i compagni se non i professori nel caso più grave. In questo terribile periodo di Covid 19 e di quarantena, skype è un ottimo alleato per noi Insegnanti e Studenti e ripristinare il fatto che chi ha creato la chat sia l'unico amministratore della stessa, sarebbe un grande strumento di gestione da reinserire. Oppure più semplicemente indicare nel messaggio chi è l'utente che fa la rimozione, sarebbe sufficiente per prevenire…

  3. FOR SKYPE GROUPS LET ADMIN CONTROL WHO CAN BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP

    I TEACH ONLINE AND HAVE LOTS OF SCHOOL STUDENTS IN VARIOUS GROUPS OVER THE WEEK. BOYS PLAY THE FOOL SOMETIMES AND REMOVE THEIR CLASSMATES DURING THE COURSE OF THE CLASS, WHICH DISRUPTS THE CLASS NO END. They also mute my microphone at times. If I can have a feature which allows me control over my group, it will be fantastic. I have been covered on the skype blog too and have doubled my students since then.

  4. Scheduled Meetings

    It's about time to include a "Schedule a Meeting" feature with Calendar integration to Skype. That would certainly Zap the Zoom.

  7. Enlarge Captions

    Please make it so the caption size can be enlarged in Skype for Android. The captions are too small for someone with impaired vision to read.

  9. Ability to locally mute a participant during group video calls

    There should be an option where I can mute a person during a group video call in such a way that I am the only one who cannot listen to them while rest of the participants can.

  10. To know who cut my call

    Can I know who cuts my call because they started playing with the people over there and we cannot find who it is. It shows that your call have been removed from the call by other participant. Is there a way I could get a specific name

  11. OPTION TO SEE MORE THAN 4 PEOPLE

    I think that it could be a good idea to have to option of seeing all the faces of the participants on the screen while doing a videoconference with a large group of people

  13. Add group call option to Eco Show

    At the moment you can't add someone with an Eco Show to a group video call... which is a huge shame... particularly for old people who are generally the users of the very simple eco show device. Please add !

  14. Single call host who would have control to mute / unmute others.

    At present , it is a dumb design to let anyone mute or kick out anyone out of the call. There should be a host who can then promote everyone with higher permissions if required.

  16. Make turning off video increase the audio quality, by either increasing resolution or reducing audio delay!

    Make turning off video increase the audio quality, by either increasing audio resolution (sound quality) or reducing the audio "delay" - or both! This could potentially improve musical collaboration via Skype, which is plagued by audio "lag" or "delay" - definitely problem! In other words, use the bandwidth "given up" by turning off the video, to enhance the audio experience. Thanks!

  17. BRING BACK RINGTONE OPTION. Its mind blowing that you took away such a basic option.

  19. Who initiated a group call

    It would be very helpful if we're able to identify who initiated the Group Call.
