  1. 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

  3. What's really important

    Dear developers, what do you think is really important when we open skype. Is it the 10 weeks old conversation or whos on line? I'm interested to know because millions of people asked the same question and we still see totally unimportant yadayada first than we have to start digging deep just to find out if a contact we want to talk to is online or not. Using your scale of importance maybe seven layers of ads would improve the search for whos online.

  7. dial-in

    Hi. Can you introduce phone dial-in for Skype to make the functionality like that of Zoom, Webex and GoToMeeting. This will allow some participants of a conference call to dial in from their phone while others join through their Skype Mobile / Web / Desktop app while being bridged to the same conference call.

  10. undock stage

    We can undock the video from the main Skype window and expand it full screen to another monitor. But, this leaves the stage, participant list and conversation in the main window. Yes, we can make the stage full screen, but then the participant and chat windows are hidden.

    It would be great to have the choice to undock the stage and make that full screen (on one monitor) and then have the main window with video/chat/participants on another monitor. I think that would be far more useful than a full screen of the video camera.

  14. Skype needs to have top bottom split screen view for video calls and messages when the window is narrow.

    In Skype 7 at any given time you're able to see the chat field while seeing the video call. In Skype 8 this is only the case sideways when the window is wide. When you make the window narrow you can only have one or the other. This needs to be fixed asap.

    For Skype android this should also be implemented. I'm regularly typing and talking at the same time. Sometimes just typing but still broadcasting video just to let someone see me. It's very cumbersome now.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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).

    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!

  19. 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.
