  3. During group calls should be possibility to show on the screen more than 4 people

    When you’re speaking with several people on Skype on video, it shows only 4 panels. So you can’t see other people and it’s really uncomfortable.

  5. Ability to share system audio when sharing screens on Ubuntu/Mac

    I can share system audio when sharing screens on Windows, but the same functionality is not available on Ubuntu, Mac or iOS. Such functionality should be available across platforms.

  6. Allow more participants in a Video conference, due to current Corona virus Home-Office situation.

    Due to the latest Corona-Virus measures, many have started working from home and are currently in need of video conferences that often exceed the amount of 50 participants (e.g. our university lectures). I highly suggest that you increase the aforementioned limitation for free and thus, help too as a company during this difficult times.

  8. GROUP CALL PROBLEM

    Please distribute rights during the call since during the group calls someone keeps removing others from the call, regardless their right as admin/or user so please let add the right to remove member from the call to the admins only, or at least give the information who is removing who, since no one gets the information even the one who has been removed...

  9. mute my call know

    In group calls, only the person initiating the call (using /golive command) can mute others, and there is no way to turn off others' video. This can be disruptive, particularly on large group calls. Would you please build in functionality for group admins to mute participants in a group call and to turn off participants' video in a group call?

  15. Support external usb microphone iPad

    No option to set up a USB microphone under Skype in iPad. Currently using blue yeti USB microphone which works on all other applications under the iPad through an adapter. Skype does not give an option to enable the external microphone for phone calls.

  16. call admin management

    I suggest the ability to decide group call administrators. to take away the administrator power of some people in group calls. I also suggest activating a call log to understand who removes other people from the call. These functions are useful in conferences and in call management

  19. Annoying "Give me a call when you're back" message

    Please, provide a way to completely disable "Give me a call when you're back" message when someone doesn't answer my call? I don't want to send this message. I understand this suggestion when it appears within a popup when the call ended (failed), but when I close this popup I really don't want this draft message to be sent. Instead I see this text in the message input field. I think it's bad for UX. It's simply annoying.
