  4. kenya plans

    larger Plans to Kenya 200 min. is not enough, a few more options like 500 min. and 1000 min. would be nice

  5. Change MAC CATALINA requirement to record when sharing screens - this is a violation of my privacy and should be optional

    Please make recording of a Skype call when sharing screens (on Mac Catalina) OPTIONAL. At the moment if I do not allow recording, the other person will only see my screensaver and not the files I am trying to display.

  6. Annoying "Give me a call when you're back" message

    Please, provide a way to completely disable "Give me a call when you're back" message when someone doesn't answer my call? I don't want to send this message. I understand this suggestion when it appears within a popup when the call ended (failed), but when I close this popup I really don't want this draft message to be sent. Instead I see this text in the message input field. I think it's bad for UX. It's simply annoying.

  7. one side only video recording option

    If one side alone video recording feature is available it would greatly ensure satisfactory play back and album compilation

    How about SkAype remembering your settings e.g zoom, pan, and tilt. Because right now it doesn't! It used to, but now it doesn't.

  9. Can we change our ring tone

    I do like the default ring tone but I think it would help me and others if we could change our ring tone so we didn’t hang up to easily and we wouldn’t always be listening to the same thing

  11. Applause Button

    Add a button next to the existing (4) buttons for Applause.
    When someone is doing a presentation or we like something someone suggests, we can click the "Applause Button" for a wav file to play canned "Applause" for 5-10 seconds.

  12. Add ability to mute incoming ringer's "audio share" without muting his mic.

    I have long Skype sessions and I need to see and sometimes hear everything caller does. I just want to be able to mute his audio share whenever I feel I don't need to hear it.

    Add eye contact correction to Skype which is already used by Microsoft for a while now. It will be a life saver.

  16. caption history

    Captioning is great ... but only 4 lines in the main window is a bit low. Using the captions history is great , could we get the history window displayed by default instead of having to turn it on every time ?

  18. Annoying Skype Call Theme Song

    Can we please, please get an updated version of the Skype call theme or have the option to change it to something else? It is incredibly stressful every time I hear it. Even when I'm expecting a call, the song starts so abruptly and harsh that it makes my insides jump (in a bad way). This just adds a subconscious negative connotation with Skype calling. I know it's been the song for a long time and it's iconic for Skype, but I'm sure that someone could create a softer version that doesn't start so abruptly, or at least add an…

  20. More adjustments for microphone. The adjustment feature isn't even labeled what you are adjusting.

    Adjustments for sensitivity and how loud you're own microphone is.
