  1. Please include a feature where a blocked contact cant reach out to the person he / she was blocked by.

    Please include a feature where a blocked contact cant reach out to the person he / she was blocked by. I am facing this as any stranger has got my id from somewhere and he is continuously calling me and showing his nude pics and videos.

  4. Allow anyone to unmute anyone

    This would be useful when someone cannot work out how to do it themselves.

  5. add volume control, clearer audio, more share screen options

    Like discord, theres volume control for individual people in a chat or a group, so one friend can be put at 100%, someone else at 200% or someone at 50% etc. and discord tends to have clearer sounding audio, skype tends to sound more muffled. as for screen share, discord lets you select which application specifically that you want to share, and if u want to share the audio.

  6. How about a feature that allows us to change the background like Zoom can :-)

    How about a feature that allows us to change the background like Zoom can. Presently there is no feature to do this on the latest version of Skype which is a real bummer.

  7. Resolution options to improve quality of sound

    Choice of resolution just like on YouTube
    Lower resolution potentially improving stability and sound quality
    Higher security version for confidential communication at work, civil service, criminal justice etc.

  8. How can I stop other participant to remove me from the group call . The app should block this feature to mute or remove other participant.

    The aap should block thjs featurs or give the name of the culprit who is removing continuously the other participant. And only the host of tghe group should have that authority. And I think the aap dont have any concern abkut their aap users

  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?

  14. Find the person who is removing others from call.

    We're having online classes on Skype because of lockdown but someone removes other persons and because of that We're not able to study or attend classes. Please do something.

  15. Changeable ringtones

    I feel that people should be able to change their ringtones for certain contacts. For an example, if I have a friend on Skype, I could set them a custom ringtone so I know if its them calling.

    Also, the ability to set default ringtones for all contacts.

  19. The Recorded Video Must have a speaker only view.

    In a video conference call if any member starts recording, the recorded video which has an validity of 1 month should only show the speaker view.
    for eg- if one records in a group call the speaker only should be visible instead of a grid view in which all are visible. it should be as if one is streaming online.
    Thanks. Hope you will do the Needfull.

  20. Enabling Breakout rooms | Muting and kicking the participants out

    I'm surprised that there are only 2 posts about his feature while I think this is the most useful and unique feature that Zoom offers. Especially in 2020 when all schools start to operate online they're looking for a better tool. Unfortunately, Zoom and other many platforms offer features such as muting and unmuting participants, locking the meetings and most importantly, only organizers can kick the group members out of the meeting. These are essential features Skype is missing.
