  2. Sharing screen..

    when I am using sharing my a window it can be start only after I start the sharing... but if you can add that selection before I share the screen that will be very nice...
    Plus you have no features for multiple windows sharing... if you add that that will be nice too...

  5. automatically enable my camera for certain calls or all calls

    When a friend makes a video call for me, there is always some fumbling while we turn on our cameras. I would like to avoid this unnecessaary configuration time at the beginning of every call. Please give me a per-contact setting to “always enable camera when accepting video from this person.”. Thanks

  8. Skype should include the possibility of having a membership for a Skype Phone Number inside Costa Rica!

    A lot of costarricans and foreigners feel the need that Skype can brings plans to have a Skype Phone Number membership in Costa Rica.

    Despite the fact that Costa Rica is a small country, the Costa Rican mind is very focused on the high end technologies, including Audio and Video Streaming, VoIP, Speech Recognition and topics like these. In addition, many North Americans and foreigners from other parts of the world, increasingly choose Costa Rica as a country to live and enjoy, because mainly, the good health system they have (seen in these moments of global pandemic) and the evolution…

  14. Disable Reconnecting Sounds

    Please please please allow us to disable every individual sounds like we used to be able to. I'm autistic and the "call is reconnecting" sound is pure sensory **** that I can't escape, and unfortunately starting a few days ago I get it EVERY FIVE MINUTES. I can't do my remote work if I'm constantly on the brink of melting down during meetings!

  16. need two channels of audio

    I teach music remotely. I'd like to have one microphone on me and a second on an instrument (piano for example). I purchased a two-channel audio amplifier (I use condenser mics) and it connects to my Mac via USB-C. Unfortunately, my students only hear the left channel (input 1) when we use Skype. I want Skype to use both inputs.

  20. Make screen sleep

    Make the screen sleep when we press the phone off button. This shouldn’t make the Skype call end.
