  2. Covid19 Hack for Hospitals: Using skype in Tablets (Android/ipads) as baby monitors (for remotely monitoring patients)?

    Using Tablets (Android/ipads) as baby monitors (for remotely monitoring patients)?

    I got this idea from a local hospital which requested folks to drop in their VIDEO baby monitors at the hospital, and the nurses would use them to monitor patients from far [1]

    Then, I found this site [2] that shows how to convert an old tablet for use as a video baby monitor.

    The idea is to use skype to do the connection and have a mobile to watch on the other end.

    Wifi/bandwidth should not be much of a problem in hospital settings, but we would need to…

  3. Incorporate Microsoft Whiteboard with Skype

    This is similar to an existing feedback idea. Skype needs a whiteboard module. Microsoft Whiteboard is already one of the best whiteboards around, and it allows for whiteboard collaboration (but not any voice communication). So it would be a natural addition to Skype

  5. Be able to get the due subscription back if there was a payment issue after expiration particularly if you are an old customer

    My subscription expired while I had an issue using the previous card which I had assigned to Skype. By the time I had sorted it out and I could now use a new card I could not go back to it. The offers now available are far too expensive!!!
    The disappointment is greater since I am an old customer and there is no further consideration from Skype. Some kind of flexibility should be available particularly to old customers because difficulties and problems either than our responsibility may arise. This issue is making me look else where for better offers and…

  6. Complete 2020 list of things that need to be Fixed.

    1000 Suggestions won't do anything you need clear docs and real-time info to collaborate with the community but here is what i think needs addressing.

    Desktop App stuff:

    The built-in recorder is a mess it won’t record your current layout nor separate streams and its resolution/bitrate is too low we need selectable output for this not to be a ‘’backup thing’’ we also need multi audio tracks embedded GMT or UTC time code and a file name output that is standard like ‘’Sunday 2019.12.08 09.53.48 AM GMT’’ etc not ‘’video1’’ and the banner needs to be hidable and a ‘’i…

  7. Provide a keyboard shortcut for Present button on Windows 10

    Use case: Sight impaired user has problem with machine. I need them to be able to share their screen via Skype.

    Their screen reader doesn't read the present button . There doesn't appear to be a shortcut key to present desktop (that I can get to work anyway)

    there are shortcut keys to stop sharing but none to start the process.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/keyboard-shortcuts-for-skype-for-business-74eda765-5631-4fc1-8aad-cc870115347a?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us

    Thanks for looking

  9. Bring back the old sounds

    Bring us back the great old sounds!!! And make us able to change the notification sounds as we please, instead of forced to hear the basics. I really loved the previous versions of Skype because you could change your notification sounds. Please bring that back.

  11. float the reaction emoji up the side of screen during video chat

    II think there should be an option to be able to have the reaction emoji float up the side of the screen during video chat instead of a distracting whole screen overlay.

  15. Stop making people sad on skype 8. please bring Skype 7 back.

    Petr, today i have got a serious issue. Many people on Skype 8 are sad because
    you removed the sounds, features they loved, The logo they preferred, the style, the rainbows that were there, sounds, and many more. Petr, i kindly ask you to stop and revert back to skype version 7.7 back or maybe 7.16 if possible. because many ppl prefered that version. i know microsoft can make it better.
    Thank you

  20. The problems I can see

    It makes the world a better place! thanks, skype. It is not included many ads and easy to use.

    The problems I can see:


    1. On different Android devises and phones push notification is not active. On Sony Xperia 10, I will not see sb text me until on open the Skype app and it usually takes a while to load the app. (would be nice if it could be like Whatsapp that always awake)


    2. In MacBook Pro, we check on many devices. for sharing screen it needs permission almost every time and we have to go to mac setting it…
