  3. How about a timer for conversations?

    I'd like to set a 60-minute timer for my cello lessons. Now that so many people are using Skype for business and instructional meetings, an optional timer would be really, really useful.

  8. Stereo Mix Audio option

    I need a stereo mix audio ASAP. I share my screen with people and I send them my system audio but they don't hear nothing. Urgently!!! Please. Put a stereo mix audio option back! you guys are destroying the Skype taking out the stereo mix audio. Put that back ASAP. If you guys don't put that back will lose customers.

  9. Share audio!

    A very basic function which is NOT supported!! share computer audio during a call. So fundamental every other app (Zoom etc) does it. Skype does not. Why?

  12. automatically minimize Skype application window when finished

    I use Skype to communicate with my disabled sister; she cannot manipulate her laptop at all so everything needs to work automatically. The one hangup is that after our visit the Skype application window remains open on her laptop thereby obscuring her desktop. You need to make the application window automatically minimize after the session.

  14. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.
