  1. Request to extend the time frame for recordings

    Hi Team,

    I understand Skype currently provides option to download recordings for 30 days and older. However, it would be helpful if its possible to extend the time frame of the recordings to atleast 1 year so we can download some older recordings. I am actually in need of downloading the recordings of April 2020 from a specific group that I belong to.

    Please let me know if Skype can consider this request as a one-off and help me to extend the time frame only for this group

  3. See who's ending call for everyone.

    I would be very happy to see the person ending the call rapidly (without reason).It disturbs too much when in a group call.

  4. I would like to see Subscription for South Sudan. We have many South Sudanese US, Canada, Europe who would that service.

    Make subscription available for millions of South Sudanese who are living in US, Canada, Europe, and Australia. It will be a great investment

  5. Add feature to turn audio compression on or off

    Having an option to turn the in-call audio ducking off. Every musician I know is not happy with Skype's audio processing (compression/noise gate/etc.). Audio signal drops out frequently, is laggy and doesn't sync up with other callers. Giving or taking music lessons in Skype is a nightmare.

  11. Sharing computer audio while screen sharing on a Mac!

    Please make it so that I can share my computer's audio while screen sharing on a Mac. You can do it using PC's, so I don't understand why it isn't a feature on Mac's.

  13. Skype on Harmon Kardon Invoke Speaker

    Recently Microsoft (you all) have announced that you will be removing Cortana from the Harman Kardon Invoke Speaker in 2021. While I don't personally agree with this decision I am stuck with it.

    There are 3 reasons that I bought this speaker. It was high quality, it had Cortana and it could make Skype calls.

    My suggestion is, once Cortana is removed still allow the speaker to make and receive Skype calls.

  14. View participants in different arrangements.

    It can be confusing as to who is talking when the video feed fights on the phone or on the computer. It would be good to have different arrangments for the participants. It would also be good to arrange by name, time joined (these could even be viewable as a toggle for keeping track with a timestamp for meeting roll calls). Tiles focused with the ability to swipe to a list to add another person to the focus screen. There's a lot of potential for features in the space of having flexibility and control over the viewing of participants. Please…

  16. Is it too much to ask that a video is automatically recorded when I am added to a group meeting?

    When my profile is added to a group and there is a video I would like skype to record the video and send a push notification asking if I would like to view the video. Incase I forgot to watch the video or did not receive a reminder to for the meeting or did not set a reminder.
