  1. Share screen

    please remove the window border because that resize the screen and add two black bands or make a full screen option like the previous versions.

    Make profil pictures more tiny with less opacity (or add an option to hide them), they are too big and take a lot of screen space.

  2. I just want to be able to dial a phone number and speak with someone (who is not a contact, and never will be a contact).

    I just want to be able to dial a phone number and speak with someone (who is not a contact, and never will be a contact).

    Where has this, the most useful feature, gone? I've done it for 11 years!

  3. This new version doesn't seem to be an improved one and rather seems like a pain. Logs-off by itself very often.

    I would love to have the previous/old version of Skype and hate this new upgrade or latest version. Can I go back to the older version.

    Since I had upgraded to this new version, I have been having trouble. Here is the list of pain areas;
    1. Unable to see 'Missed Calls', which was visible and very convenient in the previous/old versions.
    2. Skype logs-off very frequently without any logic or justifications.
    3. The app seems like very unstable.

  4. Outbound ring tone is VERY LOUD and distorted

    When making an outbound call I have to remove my headphones. The ring tone is very loud and distorted. But when the person on the other end answers the volume is normal.

  6. Please add the option to mute incoming ringer

    Please add the option to mute incoming call ringer (ringing on secondary audio selected) when status is selected to "Do Not Disturb". This was how Skype use to work, ver 7 and earlier. For now I have to either make sure to totally must my computer, (all audio devices), or shutdown Skype/Quit Skype to not be disturbed by incoming calls.

  7. Call technical information

    With new version 8.33, I have noticed the call technical info window is not available anymore.

  8. Screen sharing broken for multiple display screens

    Since last update about mid of Oct, the screen sharing feature is broken now. Windows 10, Skype version 8.34.0.81, application version 14.34.81.0.
    I have 3 display screens, this is a popular setup for developers to have more than one.
    To reproduce:
    Make a call and share the screen
    Actual result:
    - one screen is only displayed to be selected, after selecting it, a different one!!! is shared.
    Expected result
    - 3 screens are displayed to select one to share, once selected the correct one is shared

  10. Add a call confirmation popup

    Whenever we hit the call iron, the person gets called directly.
    Please add a confirmation popup so that we don't end up calling someone by accident ,especially in groups with a lot of people this problem is a headache.

  13. we need the ability to leave a voice message from our personal comps.

    we need to be able to leave a private voice message to our contacts who were either not online to receive our call or the call just didnt go thru for one reason or another.. since reading a message is not safe when driving, it would be nice for them to be able to listen to your message and know to call you back..

  17. Can you make the screen share like it was before.

    One of the things that's a bit annoying about sharing the screen is there's a bunch of useless clutter when watching a screen share that's impossible to get rid of. Also it's not proper full screen anymore. Can you restore it to how it was before ruining it thanks?

  18. Push to talk

    Push to Talk. It is a thing. Literally every other VoIP app has this and Skype used to from what I gather.
