  1. Integrate Stereo Audio

    Skype should integrate Stereo Audio for musicians / creatives looking to collaborate and add depth to the conversation using stereo microphones / direct audio ins. Zoom voice call currently supports this and I think it would be a revolutionary addition for many collaborating creatives such as myself who give lessons and consultation over Skype.

  3. Skype needs to have top bottom split screen view for video calls and messages when the window is narrow.

    In Skype 7 at any given time you're able to see the chat field while seeing the video call. In Skype 8 this is only the case sideways when the window is wide. When you make the window narrow you can only have one or the other. This needs to be fixed asap.

    For Skype android this should also be implemented. I'm regularly typing and talking at the same time. Sometimes just typing but still broadcasting video just to let someone see me. It's very cumbersome now.

  6. SKYPE is now no good at all

    There are no tools and the options have been drastically reduced. The updates have not improved the system one bit. Also at the instance when an update is to be downloaded - there is no clear information on exactly what the differences will be. Having learned to manage one system quite successfully, we are then cast totally adrift with a new - generally WORSE - system. Bad news !

  7. Why can't I change the screen size to show both me and the person I am contacting. Half screen for both used to be available now not.

    Why can't I have the half screens as before ? the instructions and guidance in the programme are useless.
    Also - why is it not possible to easily change the text size in messages - as it was before microsoft took it over. It is more difficult and more unwieldy to use. SO far - alll bad news - so please give me a solution to this.

  10. 通话界面如果能同时显示联系人列表和群信息就更好了。通话时,切换到别的app,Skype留在屏幕上那个界面占的区域太大了。

  11. 在旧版本的基础上加上录屏的功能

    旧版本很好用,新版本只是华丽的外表,并没实际用处,更多的是不方便!

  13. Native dialer on android

    Make it that skype can handle native calls and be the default dialer app on android. Go a step further and give it a "handoff" feature for calls using Wi-Fi, similar to Apple devices

  14. Bluetooth sound quality

    Fix the sound quality problems and skipping with bluetooth headphones. That would be a great start. Now conferences are a pain. Have to disconnect -> connect all the time

  15. Alexa/Google Home integration

    It would be great if Skype had a skill for Alexa or Google Home so for example we could make a call like this: "Alexa, open Skype and call xyz" etc. Or the same with Google Home. Also it would be great if we could do the same with messages.

  17. Raise your hand

    Add a "raise your hand" option for group audio calls which notifies everybody on the call that I (or anyone person) want to speak. This is very useful during meetings. This can be useful during any conference call so at to not to interrupt a speaker in the middle and unlike a video where you can make out from a listener's expression that they might want to talk, on an audio call the only way for someone to convey their intention to speak is to wait till someone finishes their sentence but there might be multiple people who wish to…
