  4. To allow sharing of audio sound WITHOUT sharing screen

    To allow sharing of audio sound WITHOUT the need to share screen. Sometimes I just want to be able to listen to the same songs with my partner at the other end, but without the need to share screen as I want to maintain the full video view.

    This will definitely be a very good feature that many will enjoy I believe!

  5. ---BUG REPORT---

    I want to play sound in the background on my speakers while having call at the same time but some strange switching happens.

    Settings are the following:
    Windows 10 sound --> monitor speakers
    Skype Sound --> headphones

    Test Case:
    Check if audio is divided correctly to headphones while music is playing on speakers

    Skype Settings --> Test Audio (call) button
    first 2-3 times the sound goes to the speaker then 4th time sound goes to headphones as it should be then 5th,7th again on the speakers then back to the headphones and so on.
    It doesn't follow any pattern, it's…

  7. Do not allow people to add new members to a moderated group

    I created a moderated group that only has me as an Administrator. However, other members of the group are able to add new members using the “merge new call with current active call” function. This “merge call” function works only on the Desktop. There is no cell phone. Please correct this flaw.

  8. Custom Calling Ringtone

    Hi, I'm very proud of skype and the way it outstands in the meetings market but there's an issue I would like to talk about. So I have been using skype ever since it was created and I have also been using the custom ringtone feature. But now it's gone and I get confused because I talk to a lot of people via skype but my family does so, so we never know whose computer is ringing. Thank you .

  9. Make Screensharing 60 or Custom FPS

    I would like to share video games or anything else really, on 60FPS or custom FPS without skype locking me into that framerate or just make it way smoother.

  10. make audio feed back on avatar

    It feels like we are constantly troubling shooting audio issues. mic or speakers not working. it would be nice if skype would always flash using a audio level a bright circle around the person that is speaking when in a call including myself so we would know right away if its us or them.

    thank you.

  11. Fix your error messages so they help solve the problem

    When we try and voice call South Africa, the call does not connect and the error says that the balance is insufficient (we have over $25 in credit) or it says the person is unavailable BEFORE the phone even starts ringing.

    This problem has been occurring for roughly a month. We have not changed anything on our end. Can you help?

    Also, you need to fix your error messages - if a user has sufficient credit, it should not tell them that they don't. This is inaccurate and frustrating!

  12. External Microphone on iPad air

    Ich würde mich freuen, wenn ich ein externes Mikrofon an mein iPad Air anschließen könnte. Die App müsste dahingehend verbessert werden.
    Danke für Ihre Bemühung

  17. Virtual

    www.virtualmeetings.com

    www.eventsolution.com

    www. meetingday.com

    I’m wondering if any of your development team members would be interested in acquiring any or all of these URLs? They all are highly valued, however, I am now retired from the industry after an amazing career in marketing.. I have recently been given a terminal medical diagnosis with not that many years to live and it’s imperative for me to answer the epitaph in Hamilton. “How shall I be remembered?”

    I am not emotionally attached to any of the above url’s, and I’m willing to accept a dignified offer.

    Skype, might you or your development…

  19. Permission to unmute

    If we are in a video meeting with lots of people, we should be able, as moderators, to manage the people who are talking. If someone can’t talk because someone else is, we could mute him, but it is likely that he will unmute himself to keep talking over others’ voices. But if we had an option where we could block someone’s microphone, he would ask me first the permission to unmute and then the moderator can decide whether to unmute or keep him in mute.
