  1. Ability to change displayed name

    REGISTER THE USERS NAME AS YOU HAVE FORCED UPON US NOW, BUT HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE DISPLAYED NAME. MY COMPANY HAS 5 LAPTOPS THAT I ISSUE TO EMPLOYEES SO THEY CAN COMMUNICATE BACK TO ME OR TO CLIENTS. tHERE IS NO WAY TO IDENTIFY THE USER WHILE ONLINE

  2. More Pride Flags?

    It's awesome to see so many pride flags, and that they're here to stay! But, there are still so many members of the LGBTQ+ Community that can't be represented in such a small sample of flags. Examples of this are the Aromantic flag, and straight ally flag (the straight pride flag is much more negative, and often encourages the opposite of what pride flags aim to, but the ally flag is not like this).

    Would it be possible to see more flags / LGBT inspired emojis in the future?

    Thanks for considering!

  5. Allow ranking of Skype Ideas by number of votes

    When searching if others have complained about the same issue, you give no option to rank the ideas by votes, meaning that votes are spread out over an infinite number of potentially similar demands. This is such an inefficient way of doing things. There should be a better way of returning results, such that people aggregate their votes, meaning they get heard better. Except if you are avoiding that!

  9. disconnects

    My question is: for what reason can all participants of the conference be thrown out (group call by 10 people)? and after reconnecting immediately disconnects all.

  13. Send/share a meeting link to someone when you're already on a meeting video call

    I've started a skype meet video call and have 3 people on the call and receive a call from someone that I would to add to the meeting who doesn't have a skype account. I should be able to go in the chats or somewhere on the screen and find a link for the current meet conversion to email to someone so they can join.

  18. Upgrade Skype App in Windows 10 Mobile

    We know Windows Mobile is no longer important for you but we still love to use it. I am requesting you to update Skype app for Windows Mobile to get advantage of new features which are available for Android and iPhone, so during coronavirus we could use it to communicate with our friends and family. Don't expect to buy new phone during this economic crisis.

  20. Add Skype Classic back, or old Skype for Web.

    Ok, so another user posted the same thing, but I want to post this too, so it could possibly gain more attention. I think at this point, we (the Skype Classic fanbase) really want Skype Classic back. And to be honest, if you actually did, I think more people would come back on Skype. The only reason more people are moving over to Discord is because you're disabling are favourite stuff, and it's heartbreaking for us. And if this post gets ignored, then I won't be surprised, because all M$ staff ignore things that are even related to Skype Classic!…
