    with the chat option opening on RHS where preview of own image is, there's no way to verify if image is centred. Enable image to be displayed on LHS

  9. SKYPE CRASH - Bluetooth switching broken on Android Pie (9.x) with phones that simultaneously connect to multiple Bluetooth sinks

    On Android Pie (9.x), which is supposed to be installed on 11% of the 2.5 Billion Android devices now, a large portion of the handsets/devices are able to connect to multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously, marking ONE of them as the Active device. The problem occurs when a user is on a call using a headset and gets into a car. Android connects to the new car BT device and tries to make it Active. Skype is unable to handle this correctly and many times will either crash the entire app or drop the call after a module crashes.

  10. Play soundboards with Skype

    Microsoft - inexplicably - removed the facility to play soundboards via Skype. It also removed the Share System Sound setting. Using soundboards can be great fun.

  11. Share screen

    please remove the window border because that resize the screen and add two black bands or make a full screen option like the previous versions.

    Make profil pictures more tiny with less opacity (or add an option to hide them), they are too big and take a lot of screen space.

    I just want to be able to dial a phone number and speak with someone (who is not a contact, and never will be a contact).

    Where has this, the most useful feature, gone? I've done it for 11 years!

  13. Arrange callers according to the time that they log into skype please

    During group call, It is better if skype could arrange the caller according to when they join call so that whoever that join the call first will have their name at the beginning of the list.

  16. CALLER ID USING YOUR FRENCH SKYPE NUMBER & NEW COUNTRIES !!!

    Can we have a date on when Caller ID using Skype number will be available for new countries such as France?

    It is good to offer Skype numbers for a lot of countries BUT if you cannot use the number you paid FOR OUTBOUND CALLS it is really depreciate your offer. You would benefit from many professional users using other apps much worst in terms of mobile experience for example. A juicy market you are unfortunately missing...

    Currently we are only limited to:
    USA
    UK
    Chile
    Denmark
    Estonia
    Poland
    Sweden
    Switzerland

  18. Build a list of echo device voice commands to successfully interact with IVR while in a Echo Skype to Phonecall.

    Make Skype to Phone calls from the echo device via the Alexa app, or allow the use of dialling pad via the Alexa app while in a Skype to Phone call via the echo device especially since Alexa commands are limited or non-existent for interacting with the IVR system during the call.

  20. share screen - phantom mouse

    Add option to enable "phantom mouse" when other people click your shared screen.
    when you enable the option, every time someone click the shared screen in the conversation, a "phantom mouse" will appear for few seconds in the location of the click in different color from the actual mouse with the name of the clicker.
