  1. Admins on group chats

    It would be better if you added admins on group chat,so only they have permissions to remove others from calls.In my country,almost 1.000.000 classes take place in Skype due to the corona virus problem and students keep kicking and muting each other from calls.It would be better if they didnt have this permission,so a much better class woul take place.

  3. Support for higher refresh rates

    I use a OnePlus 7 pro which has a 90hz refresh rate. Most major upcoming devices are also increasing refresh rate. It would help everyone if skype supported these refresh rates as it feels like my phone is visibly slowing down everytime I open skype. Please add this.

  4. uninstall/completely remove/at least don't run at startup

    Didn't install skype, don't use skype, will never use skype, don't want skype, but there's nothing I can do about it short of removing all of office. Can't even stop it from being the second biggest memory hog, even though I'm not using it. This is ****.

  5. Smart TV

    Coronavirus. Smart TVs. I appreciate the commercial reasons that Skype on Smart TV was discontinued. Given we are all now isolating, please would Microsoft please consider reinstating it so that families and particularly the elderly and vulnerable can stay in touch. Not all old people have smartphones/laptops etc but many have smart TV.

  6. Instructions for FREE Skype Video Calls not readily available on Home page!

    Instructions for using FREE Skype for video calls should be clearly visible on Skype Home Page.

    During the Covid-19 Pandemic, I needed to set up a Skype account to have a teleconference with my pediatrician. I thought that Skype was Free. But when I arrived at the Home Page, and even after poking around the Help menu, I could not find any information about how to use the Free version of Skype for a video call. Instead, I unnecessarily purchased a phone number and subscription; then I had to go on Chat to cancel both.

    As a freelance copywriter and…

  7. Please add function for group admins to remove multiple members from group.

    Please add function for group admins to remove multiple members from groups. At the end of the day I have to clear inactive group members one by one to prepare group room for next day. I have 20+ groups and it takes a lot of time to prepare groups for the next day meetings.

    /kickall or /groupclear or checkboxes in group member list would be perfect solution!

    Please vote for this suggestion if you find it useful! Thank you!

  8. Gruppen-Mukke und mehr als 4 Leute auf einmal im Bild

    Liebes Skype-Team,

    wir haben gestern eine wichtige geschäftliche Konferenz über ihr Portal gehalten. Dabei hätten wir gerne zur allgemeinen Erheiterung ein bisschen Musik im Hintergrund laufen lassen, quasi eine Gruppen-Playlist die jeder einzelne Teilnehmer über sein Gerät gleichzeitig hören kann.

    Des weiteren ist es in solchen geschäftlichen Konferenzen unerlässlich, jeden einzelnen Teilnehmer zu sehen. Ihr Portal ermöglicht es allerdings nur, gerade einmal 4 Personen auf einmal auf dem Bildschirm zu sehen. Sehr schade.

    Bitte arbeiten sie schleunigst an diesen Änderungen und halten sie mich durchgehend auf dem neuesten Stand, was die Entwicklung der von mir vorgeschlagenen Verbesserungen betrifft.

    Danke schon…

  9. The Skype Arms

    Following the closure of many local pubs, bars and restaurants due to Coronavirus, a few of us have been using Skype for our daily social catch ups. (The Skype Arms), a substitute for going to the local !

    Provide your own drinks, socialise from the comfort of your own home. Catch up with friends and family.

    Proposal is to possibly build a website, www.theskypearms.com. The website would link / interface to the Skype platform, or would just be an extension within the existing Skype platform.

    Use the website / Skype to create 1000's of The Skype Arms, pubs, bars…

  18. My Skype program does not recognize my Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream Webcam.

    Here is my dilemma: My Skype program does not recognize my Logitech C922 Pro HD Stream Webcam. I know it is not the camera because Logitech sent me a replacement and it has the same issues as the previous one. It was working fine with the Skype I was using before the upgrade. Now, the new one does not recognize the camera at all. I was talking to a Skype agent/tech who tried to help me, however, he could not, but he told me that they have a program they could use to help them figure out what is wrong.…
