  2. 在旧版本的基础上加上录屏的功能

    旧版本很好用,新版本只是华丽的外表,并没实际用处,更多的是不方便!

  4. realsense

    Support for Intel RealSense Depth
    This is the "green screen" feature of WebCams that are RealSense enabled.
    I can already get this with streaming apps but skype doesn't seem to support this.

  5. Fix "Add to Conversation" for incoming Skype Phone Number calls.

    Please fix the "add to call" function when people call in to an existing conversation. This is crucial for my LIVE talk show.

  6. Call Recording when using Skype credit (dialling a number).

    Call recording for when you dial a number using Skype credit. I understand this feature is only available for Skype to Skype calls.

  8. Screensharing for Windows 7

    I just noticed Skype for Windows 7 doesn't have the feature for screen sharing. I would love if it does because I mainly use Skype for remote work and training. Thank you.

  12. WTF?

    Why in the hell did you get rid of the standard DTMF tones when dialing from the keypad? Bring them back! Changing them is NOT a useful innovation.

  14. transfer cell phone number to Skype

    I'm on a PC most of the day. I hate typing on a cell phone. I'd love the option of making Skype my primary phone & texting service and dumping the phone...impossible if I can't transfer my cell phone number over though.

  15. Need to have the option to adjust audio settings on mobile devices:

    Not having the option to adjust the audio settings when using Skype on my mobile device is horrible. It makes it extremely difficult to have much quality at all during a voice call. Please make this improvement. It would be more than greatly appreciated.

  16. Stop discriminating against the vocally impaired.

    The new version of skype has no "share system sounds" option, so communicating through text to speech is no longer possible. Older versions worked fine, I guess the development team at skype just decided they don't want people with disablities as customers.

  17. More Options in Settings

    Don't dim my computer's sounds when I share my screen with someone! Or at least make it optional.

  18. Stop Muffling Other Sounds Coming From the Computer

    I often watch Netflix with my girlfriend while video chatting her on skype, but it can be difficult to hear the audio coming from other apps with the call active. If you could give us an option to stop the audio reduction during calls that would be great and likely cause me to use your product more often.

  20. putting a shortcut icon to stop sharing the video sharing for the receiver of the viode

    adding a shortcut icon in order to have control on sharing the video. It would be perfect. it could be even accessible through the small thumbnail window.

    it is what most users who don't have the great bandwidth can be provided with.
