  2. Virtual

    www.virtualmeetings.com

    www.eventsolution.com

    www. meetingday.com

    I’m wondering if any of your development team members would be interested in acquiring any or all of these URLs? They all are highly valued, however, I am now retired from the industry after an amazing career in marketing.. I have recently been given a terminal medical diagnosis with not that many years to live and it’s imperative for me to answer the epitaph in Hamilton. “How shall I be remembered?”

    I am not emotionally attached to any of the above url’s, and I’m willing to accept a dignified offer.

  4. Permission to unmute

    If we are in a video meeting with lots of people, we should be able, as moderators, to manage the people who are talking. If someone can’t talk because someone else is, we could mute him, but it is likely that he will unmute himself to keep talking over others’ voices. But if we had an option where we could block someone’s microphone, he would ask me first the permission to unmute and then the moderator can decide whether to unmute or keep him in mute.

  7. Accessibility for users with poor hearing and sight

    Great that you have subtitles on calls but PLEASE can you make it possible to increase the size of the subtitle font. And have an option to make a large font the default setting.
    It would also be good to have different colour options for font/background to help those with different visual impairments.

  12. Microsoft Lifecam Support for Lifecam Call Button

    Can you add a feature where if you press the call button on the Lifecam and you choose the contact you want to call and when you want to call you can press the call button then it will start calling them.

  13. Bring back sound sharing while screensharing when using Skype on a Mac

    I can't share audio while screensharing when using Skype on a Mac. I'm a teacher so not having that option makes my job really difficult. I understand Microsoft users have a box they can check when they want to enable that option.

  14. Outgoing Caller ID for Business.

    The closest Skype number I was able to obtain for my business is 100 miles away. I would like my outgoing Caller ID to display my business name instead of the town I am not operating in.

    This confuses clients and they ignore the call as spam.

  16. Please align the desktop app to web app

    While the web app can see both of my cameras (built in and usb webcam) the desktop app can only see the built it one!? Would be nice to have exactly same functionality available on both variants.

  18. Fix Together Mode and Speaker View's weird bugs

    Thanks for the together mode but it has this weird thing that on a moderated group any general member activating together mode activating it for the entire meeting. I have 20/30 people in the conference and using white board. Any single one opening together mode messing up everyone's view mode. But this feature should be like view only for the person activating it right? as in MS Teams? Also the Speaker View gets stuck most of the time to a person whether s/he is speaking or not, which is very crazy in a conference situation. I am in a situation…

  19. Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work the way it should.

    Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work properly. If shows some random gray boxes as well as with overlay windows as gray boxes too, although the window below is getting shared. This is weird that the same feature works perfectly on MSTeams but not on Skype. Please correct the layers. This is very important for my current presentation scenario.
