  4. Allow recording in Meet Now without needing anyone else to join. I can do that in Zoom

    Allow recording in Meet Now without needing anyone else to join. I can do that in Zoom.

    Currently, the record button in MEET NOW is grayed out and it not active until another person joins the room.
    I can start the recording by myself in Zoom without issue.

  7. get all the meetings links accessible in one place.

    get all the meetings links accessible in one place. Currently, there's not yet an option to customize or add folders or change favourites name from within the application.

    https://www.skype.com/free-conference-call/ View chat history at any time
    As your personal invitation links have no expiry date, you can create your invitation in advance. Perfect for planning ahead for the Christmas period with family and friends, your personal training sessions or your online classes!

    Creating personal meeting rooms is a great feature!

  13. Please don't show people who's leaving!

    Like it feels so bad that if we're in a meeting hosted by us and see people leaving before the session is over, similarly if a session is not over and you want to leave, you obviously wouldn't want the host to feel bad right.

  14. save subtitles

    Allow the user to save the closed captioning. This is critical if Skype doesn't intend to lose droves of users to peer services.

  15. skype for nvidia shield

    Add skype for android tv like nvidia shield. it is a capable device to run skype and we need it to have conversations with older family members on big tv. Like the auto answer option that only skype has, very easy for older people.

  16. invite people to a future call

    I don't see how you can invite people to a scheduled call. In Zoom, you can send a message to people inviting them to a meeting. If skype has this feature it is well hidden.

  19. Stop Skype call interruption via phone inboud connection

    Hey guys,

    I have a skype flat and call a lot to landline numbers. I am using sony xperia 2 compact (android 10) and have an following issue. If I am in skype call, if someone try to reach me via normal call (f.e. from mobile) my skype call is directly interrupt. I have tried to use do not disturb function of my phone, but it does not work and my skype call is still interrupted.

    Would be great if skype will prevent another calls.

    Thanks in advance for implementation-it will improve a lot!
    Best regards from Germany,
    Adam Kot
