  2. Using speakers, not earpiece

    Android version. Allow the user to select output, earpiece or speakers. Most people don't hold the phone when using Skype, they lay it down or put it on a stand, so people can see their face. You can't do that if you have to hold the phone to your ear.

    I've been using Viber more and more lately because I can transfer a video call between my mobile and my notebook. Is there a way to do this with the free edition of Skype?

  10. Skype Channel on Roku

    This would enable users to communicate remotely with other users. Some folks don't understand how to use casting apps from their phone or computer, & a direct Roku Channel might be more user friendly. Viewing your chat guests on a larger TV screen would also enhance user experience.

  11. Embed skype into an existing website for videoconferences with clients

    It would be great if Skype could provide users with link, add-ons or widgets they could embed to their website to provide videochat to their clients.

  14. Auto correcting video call orientation in group call.

    During group video call, when phone is kept horizontal position, the video call orientation is showing differently for each caller. If video orientation adjusted to up straight for one or few, the rest of the participants having the video up side down. This happens only when phone is kept horizontal position.

  15. Conference ID Spacing

    Hi Skype!

    Can you please add spaces in the Conference ID numbers? 223322223 is easier to read if it’s written as 223 322 223. Spaces enhance the readability and eliminates typing the incorrect ID. Thank you!

  17. Wǒmen xiǎozǔ zài liáotiān,(xiǎozǔ yǒu 30 gèrén) dàn jīngcháng huì bèi guà diào xiàn, shǐ wǒmen wúfǎ jìxù liáotiān, wǒ kěyǐ zhīdào shì shéi

    Our group is chatting, (the group has 30 people), but it is often disconnected, which prevents us from continuing to chat. Can I know who hung the group line? Because his funny has affected my work, so I can know who is funny and warn him

    If you add this function, I will recommend my friends and colleagues to use skype, because I really like skype, but this time it has been hung up by others, it has affected our work, I am also testing whether to change the communication software,

  20. Skype Calls with Subtitle and Keyboard

    When making Skype calls the keyboard and subtitles should work simultaneously. For example how can one get instructions from an automated machine to enter account number, passwords, SSN, etc.. etc... if keyboard is locked? How can a deaf or hard of hearing person use keyboard during Skype calls if Subtitle is turned off?
