  1. screen share fps

    have a new tab that has everyone in the call or meeting to change fps cap/max so lag less for the people who are watching and make it so you have to click on a button to watch the screen share

  2. Remote Access

    Plug-In for Skype Basic: Windows 10 now have "Quick Assist" aka "Remote Assist." please develop a "plug-in for Skype basic to access this feature in Windows 10.
    The plug-in should install a button in Skype to run a script that opens Windows Remote Assist and allow users to remotely assist person requesting help.
    This is needed for "older less tech savvy people" who are and have been "Skype basic users" as well as students who are working remotely.

  3. Grid customization in group calls

    I would like to see customization options for grids in group calls.
    Dragging people into a certain arrangement, enlarging some, making others smaller, removing some to see only the most relevant people to oneself.
    As a side note, it would be great if there could be the option to have the speaker automatically appear larger than the other participants in the grid.

  4. Please Add This Feature Back. (Lütfen bu özelliği tekrar ekleyin)

    EN: Skype is a video calling platform that I've been using for a year and a half. It is an application that I use very fondly. But unfortunately when I found out (to be honest) that this version can no longer change the call volume, I was very angry. Please add this feature in version 2021 (if the 2021 version making) please. Thank you to Skype team!
    TR: Skype, bir buçuk yıldır kullandığım bir görüntülü arama platformudur. Çok severek kullandığım bir uygulama. Ama ne yazık ki (dürüst olmak gerekirse) bu versiyonun artık çağrı sesini değiştiremeyeceğini öğrendiğimde çok kızmıştım. Lütfen bu…

  6. Price

    After selecting a telephone number you are asked to accept the conditions (and to be billed) but there is no mention of the price.
    It turns out you have to accept and then only you can see the price.
    This step is not clear that it is not binding so maybe you should think of renaming that button to "see rates and validate".
    :)

  9. Let me make my video bigger!!!

    It's so stupid that I can barely see myself. Why do they keep taking this away? My video is literally so tiny I wouldn't know if I had makeup smeared across my face.

    Please make it a grid view including my own video like how zoom has

  12. It is very important that Skype is accesible to visually impaired people.

    Skype blocks calls from voice control (Siri or OK google ) at least in Spain. If I ask Siri call contactx using skype i constantly get an error "Skype does not allow to do this with siri". Something must be blocked. Called support and they don't know. They say it works for them in USA. But here in europe there are lots of people complaining. Can you look at the code and see if there

  15. Downloading recorded meetings

    We tackle some problems while we are downloading some recorded meetings; In fact, sometimes I download 95% of a session and it would be restarted because Internet interruption.
    I hope that Skype team add some feature such as downloader or a download manager to avoid us from reducing our both Internet and time.

    Thanks Skype

  16. Hi

    Hi there Skype team ! I really love doing everything using this platform but the problem I have with it is that I can’t share the audio on Skype using my iPad which I think is a shame for an app like this !!!

  20. Blur background in android

    There doesn't seem to be a way to blur the background when using Skype on my phone. Perhaps Android wouldn't have enough power or memory for fancy backgrounds but it would be nice to at least be able to blur it or choose a solid color.
