  2. Admin Rights

    It should have Admin or Host Control for
    1) recording, screenshots
    2) starting the call and
    3) "delete for all" feature

    For Screen view, multiple people can come on single screen at a time.

    Also at a time 2 or 3 can be made Host and Co Host to control the meetings or calls.

  4. People need to be able to Block the entire fraud Area code 833

    Block entire area codes because there is a fraud area code 833 these scammers are calling everyday from a different number. I need to block an entire area code not each puppet phone number one by one.

  7. Stop incoming friend requests

    Be given the opportunity to disallow incoming friend requests. This would be handy for people like myself who have quite a sought after username and, as such, get a lot of spam adds and calls from bots everyday. I don't want to have to scroll through 300 friend requests/missed calls from bots to find what my friend messaged me yesterday. Spoke to your Twitter team and they advised I post this idea here.

  9. Why do you make sure we update?

    Why do you make sure we update? Why not just bring back support for older versions of Skype? Is it so difficult for you? Do you like it when people leave the project? You would return support for older versions of Skype, there would be no such noise. And you would think about the elderly people, how they were not comfortable in "Skype 8"!!! You would think of older people first than killing a normal Skype!!! Now, when I download classic Skype, I always see a survey in it: either update, or go fuck yourself. So that... I advise you…

  13. Please increase the privacy settings and allow us to change the username!

    Settings such as:
    who can see my phone number?
    who can find me by phone number?
    who can see my last seen time?
    who can find me by username?
    who can see my profile photo?
    who can call me?

  14. Alert: Intrusion of privacy

    I was accidently invited in a group chat. I didn't noticed the invitation. So I hadn't refused it yet, but I also didn't accept it. And yet I was still able to see the content of their group chat. This is a huge intrusion of their privacy. Their is a famous Flemish saying by Tom Lenaerts "Waar zijn jullie mee bezig boys? Los het op!" Meaning: What the f*ck are you doing, boys? Fix it! Thank you. (Sorry for the mistakes in writing, I'm not a native English speaker)

  16. Unlinking Skype

    Why isn't there a way to unlink my Skype account from the Microsoft account already? This entire feature is extremely anti-user friendly since plenty of people want to either delete Skype or put Skype on a totally different Microsoft account. Whether it's because we just have zero need to use Skype, or we may feel as if a brand new account can become a vulnerability, we should always have the ability to unlink and delete our Skype accounts without deleting our Microsoft account.

  18. I moduli di recupero

    I moduli di recupero per recuperare un account bloccato con un'informazione di ripristino non più utilizzabile (un vecchio indirizzo mail), sono inutili!!! Ne avrò compilati almeno 200 in due anni!!! Non funzionano trovate un altro sistema, fanno soltanto perdere tempo. Sono 2 anni che tento di recuperare un account e non sono ancora riuscito!!!!

  19. "Active status" and "accessed time status" should be disabled.

    Active status and activated status should be disabled so as to maintain privacy.

    I'd love to have a feature where I don't have to share my entire screen, but a selected application only.
