  1. Option to get rid of the "Push 2 to continue"

    When calling from a cellphone to a skype number - stop asking to have a button pushed for our business line... customers hate it!

  8. Hybrid Group Chats with Skype and Microsoft Teams users

    It would be nice to have interoperability between Microsoft Teams and Skype in which we can add people with Microsoft Teams accounts to Group Chats in which there are already Skype users.

  9. The recording os video calls

    I would like to propose the following idea: the recording of video calls should not be split in half and should record as it appears when we are talking, that is, the full screen with the image of the other person and our image on a smaller screen in the corner upper right.
    Thank you!

  12. Disable Touchscreen during Call

    Ladies and gentlemen,

    because our relatives live very far away, they often talk to their grandchildren on Skype. As the little ones can still sit very playfully and not very quietly, it is not uncommon for the little ones to play around on the screen in their exuberance and accidentally switch off the camera or hang up the call completely.

    It would be very helpful if your team could implement an additional function in Skype that allows to deactivate the touch screen during the phone call. I was thinking of a small virtual switch in the form of a specific…

  13. Away from Keyboard (AFK) Function

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    the current situation has resulted in all our meetings being converted to Skype meetings. Such business meetings are often longer than 1 hour. In my experience, it is not uncommon to have to leave your desk for a short time during the meeting. As chance would have it, you are asked a question when you are absent. The rest of the colleagues are then naturally surprised why no answer is given.

    So it would be helpful to have an extra button to signal that you are not sitting in front of the computer at the moment…

  18. Interoperability between Skype, Teams, Zoom, Webex, Google Meet users

    Make it possible to enter a Google Meet, Zoom, Webex, Skype and Microsoft Teams meeting details and have Meet host it. Also make it possible for people who use Google Meet, Zoom, Webex, Skype and Ms Teams to join in on the meetings. Create the email 3.0 interconnected video conferencing and messaging protocols that interoperate between providers. Just like email.

This is the future of email.. Email may…
