  3. Put me in the Grid (View)

    Show me as part of the grid view rather than as a separate miniature video.

    If I'm showing or demonstrating something (not screen sharing) I can't see me well enough to know if I'm doing it clearly or that its coming across the way that I want.

  4. Mute all participants microphones at once

    Please , if someone is the host in "Meet Now", it would be great to have the option to mute all participants at once until you want them to talk. It's annoying to give a speech or a class and to have particpants permanently turning on their microphones and interrupting.

  5. Stop Using Electron

    Not sure if mods have seen this lately or forgotten about it or what, but Skype needs to stop using Electron and go Native.

    Any time I am on a Skype call, my MacBook Pro gets so bogged down that I literally have to end the call for a second to open or save certain files. It's ridiculous. FaceTime, no sweat. Even Zoom and Google Duo run good enough. I cannot continue to use this application if I cannot do the work I need to while on a call.

    Plus the fans spin like crazy and that is also quite…

  6. Meet Now Instructions are Confusing

    On the site, it says no sign up or account or even install needed, but for those actually using the meeting link to connect via their mobile device, they are all prompted to sign in or install Skype (see https://www.skype.com/en/free-conference-call/). Thus far, it is a smoother process with the online Web client if accessing the link via a computer. Why are the instructions on the website misleading if you do in fact need to install or sign into the Skype app if accessing the meeting link via a mobile device? The way the site reads, users accessing the meeting…

  11. Participant video call

    It's not much participants for groep videos compared to others who can reach more than 100 people.

    Wish an immediate change of improvement. Thanks. Sincerely.

  14. Option to hide the overlay controls in full screen sharing

    When viewing a contact's shared screen in full screen mode, there is no option to hide the contacts and call controls that appear overlayed into the screen. These make it difficult to see certain elements of the user's shared screen, which makes it difficult to see and follow certain actions that involve learning how to use and configure applications.
    There should be and option to see the shared screen in full screen mode without the contacts icons and call options hiding parts of the screen.

  15. Toggle computer sound defeaning

    Everytime I call someone then it deafens my computer sound/makes it lower, and I think that there should be a button to turn that off. Thanks!

  19. shared screen and participant video image

    Hi, I'd like there to be an option for me and the Skype participants to able to draw and type on the shared screen. A whiteboard option would be nice, too.
    Also, I would like to be able to see the other participant(s) during a shared screen, but often there is only 1 participant showing and then when you click on it to move it, it vanishes only to return if you end and restart the call, maybe.

  20. Skype Credit Subscription Plans for African Countries

    There are millions of African diaspora living all over the world in different countries whose families and attachment is back home where they still celebrate their countries' holidays and call back to wish them well more often than ever. Hence, with the best quality international call Skype provides, if a subscription plan is designed to countries like Ethiopia (center of the African Union and second most populous state), Nigeria, Egypt and the like, Skype will surely beat its competitors and will keep retaining more customers that would happily subscribe for the amazing quality calls that Skype provides now, which will…
