  2. "Start my audio (mic) automatically" too.

    "Start my audio (mic) automatically" too.
    You have this for video (cam), but not for audio. For people with disabilities, they might want auto-answer on, but might not want anyone to just hear what's in the room if they happen to call in. It would be really useful for them to allow a call to begin but the microphone be muted -- the equivalent option to video but for microphone.

  3. خفض الاسعار للاتصال لليمن

    Hello my brothers, I am Abdel-Qader Jubran, from Yemen, residing in Saudi Arabia. I tried Skype to call to Yemen, very cool. But you know that most of the regions of Yemen do not have internet for that regular connection is very expensive now I hope you reduce the prices to call to Yemen or increase the number of minutes

  4. Dialing Bug

    Hello fellow Developers.

    Under the following premise, what happens when you have 2-step validation enabled to access your work account in microsoft at the URL https://login.microsoftonline.com/, it tells you to put username and password, then how is it configured the option that sends SMS to the phone number sends it or if you prefer make a validation call (dial from anywhere in the world), the call or SMS message validation is made and you enter your account.

    Now what happens if in Mexico specifically in Mexico City the numbers with the code 55 are finished and the code 56…

    In a group call we have quite a few members on different time zones and when 2 people are in the call and one logs out the call then shuts down which is annoying having to enter the command to start the call up again in the old build the call was kept up and running i would appreciate it being introduced into this build

  6. Ability to Record One Person

    The Skype recording is great, but I conduct interviews that are used for education/instructional purposes to students and they only need to see the person I'm interviewing. It would be ideal if there was an option to turn off the split screen and only record the person being interviewed.

  8. Option to choose which people you want to call in a group (avoiding to ring the call for everyone)

    Sometimes you need a group to keep people updated about the work they are doing together, however, sometimes you have meetings with just part of the people in the group, but still want that the video recorder or the messages shared keep inside the group for the other participants. It's very annoying to call everybody all the time. In DISCORD, for instance, with you start a call with SHIFT pressed you start alone and the interested people ingress on it. It's one way to do that...and make all the diference for goups where people did call often.

  14. Missed Call vs. Missed call from _Jon_Smith__ needs more distinction. An arrow pointing out if outgoing. Organize logs

    Missed Call vs. Missed call from Jon Smith__ needs more distinction. An arrow pointing out if outgoing. Anything to better display my account outgoing attempts vs incoming calls.

    If i show my skype activity to a judge for child custody, he will not arrive at proper conclusion. To see missed call, one assumes the person to which the account is associated with has MISSED a call.

    I suppose my husband is aware of the deceptive call displays when using Skype, or ged not insist I attempt to reach my child via Skype.

    To have a record would be my best…

  18. Schedule a Reoccuring Call

    You already have a feature that lets me schedule a call at a set time and date, and it even schedules a reminder beforehand. It would be awesome if you could schedule a reoccurring call for daily, weekly, biweekly, etc. I know teams can do this, but that's more of a work app. This would be a good way to stay in contact with friends and family regularly.
