  1. Know which person in the video call removed you

    That's quite annoying when someone anonymously repeatedly removes you from an important video call.

    Please make a .txt Log file available in one of skype directory to save the in-meeting activity of Joining , removing and Leaving of participants so that we know who is removing whom and at what time. The Chat window only has the info on who joined and when. Also Guest:xxxxxxxxxxx accounts should not be allowed to join large meetings without proper name and profile pictures.

  5. Tengo un problema con mi nombre de usuario, ya que coincide con mi dirección de correo electrónico asociado a mi cuenta de Skype

    Modificar mi nombre de usuario por el problema nombrado aquí abajo:
    Me gustaría que se pudiera solucionar este error ya que el nombre de usuario no debería coincidir ni con el número de teléfono ni con el correo electrónico, ya que con esa finalidad se usa precisamente el nombre de usuario que es para que la gente te añada a través de él sin necesidad de dar más datos, pero si en mi caso coincide con mi dirección de correo electrónico es un error de la aplicación que me gustaría que lo modificarán para poder volver a usar mi cuenta.…

  6. Meet Now Meeting Password

    Why can't I set a meeting password in Meet Now? if URL generated by Meet Now is leaked to a third party, they can access the chat and shared files with guest privileges. I understand the benefits of easy access, but I want to protect my privacy.

  7. Restrict access to 'gif' files to improve parental controls

    During this 'lockdown' period many grandparents are communicating with grandchildren online. Easy access to the internet via 'gif' files could be restricted to improve online safety.

  10. Locking meetings

    Hello. I do like Skype, but I would like to be able to "lock" my "meetings" in Skype, as I do in Zoom.

    This would add one more security protection.

    Thank you.

  11. Limit functionality for kids

    Is there a way to limit the following for kids accounts (via the existing parental controls):


    • search for people

    • add contacts without parental approval

    • take photos/videos of others without the other's consent

    I have set them up so that they are not visible/searchable (which works well) but there appears to be no controls to limit the above (other than parental hovering).

  14. Automatic video recording for set calls

    My ex and I are court ordered to use Skype for his supervised visits with our children and I'm suppose to record every call. It would be nice if there was a way that all of their calls for just that person was time stamped and recorded without me having to click record every time. Like if there was a way for it to start to record as soon as the call was answered from that particular person and was time stamped for court purposes. My children that are suppose to answer 5 & 7 so they are not suppose…

    It should be possible to block group. So that that group can not constantly keep adding you in.

  17. Please create an option for deleting the search history in skype for names searched to not pop-up for privacy issues, thank you.

    This option will let our private searched or contacted person be hidden and not to be found out just by looking into the search results even after the chat and call history is deleted.

  18. Permanently removing all aspects of unwanted contacts

    Despite blocking someone, or removing them from the view list, many would benefit from an optional feature allowing you to remove a contact from all areas of the platform. Currently when you completely remove someone they still appear when you click in the search bar under the people list. Being able to make it as if your account had never associated with another due to personal reasons would be greatly appreciated.
