  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.

  3. Why microphone access is mandatory ?

    'Contacts' , 'Microphone' ,'Phone', 'Storage' - seems these 4 android permissions are mandatory for using skype for business. Please note if i am using skype just for chat, i do not need microphone or phone access. The storage access is required only if i am transferring or receiving files and it should be 'as when required, user providing basis' instead of MANDATING it to use the application. Contacts permission alone should suffice to use the app for chat purposes. Kindly fix the same as it concerns the end user privacy when i provide microphone access which am sure am not…

  4. Link correct Skype account with Microsoft account

    Allow linking original Skype (pre-Microsoft) with Microsoft account. I have a duplicate Skype account that I do not use linked to my MS account. I would very much like to link my correct Skype to my correct MS account. Add Skype account and replace. Doesn't have to delete, but should unlink.

    Also be able to change pre-MS Skype Name.

  5. Include the "delete chat history" function that used to exist of the classic skype

    The ability to delete your messages to prevent yourself and whoever you sent them to from ever seeing them again was (in my opinion) the best feature lost from the Classic Skype. Discord doesn't have this as a built in feature yet, but it is possible through a browser extension.

  8. My status changes itself!

    I put the status "invisible." But during a day it spontaneously and stubbornly changes to "online" itself , despite the fact that I do not exit Skype or exit - it does not matter .. almost every time I open a page on a windows 10 laptop or android phone, I have to change it to Invisibility from online though I didn't change it myself before. How is this possible? I have a feeling of the presence of another person who, without me knowing, who changes my settings. I'm right? How to avoid this problem or mistake? how to strengthen…

  10. Being able to track harassment call

    Hi,

    I've been victim of harassment call through Skype,people call me 3-4 times a day without me knowing the person who does that. I contacted my mobile provider and no help can be done unless i change number. Police told me its also very rare that people can get caught. You have to be able to know who's harassing me so i can deposit a file at the police station.

    Regards,

    Alexander Schroeder

  11. 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.

  13. Add Network Security endpoint section to Skype account and applications, Skype Web access websites

    Would be great to add Network Security endpoint section to Skype account and applications, Skype Web access websites.
    Important features: real-time single sign-on statistic - IP, geolocation, device type, possibility to link trusted devices to Skype account,
    geolocation filter for source network and IP. Unusual activity warning, password brute force attack and etc.

    When the recipient takes a screenshot of you without your permission, we should have the right to delete it.

  17. Block group

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

  18. Clarify account recovery procedure and allow more attempts for sending the code

    When I get locked out of my account while having two factor authentication enabled, and I don't have my authenticator set up, I get only three attempts to get the code to recover it.

    Because of the two step verification, I need to use two codes, one sent via email and one sent via SMS. However, if one of the codes is not working, I need to restart the procedure, and then I can only get one code, and not the other.

    This is very frustrating, because I effectively get only one chance to recover my account in 24 hours.

  20. Status

    I try to keep my status on invisible, but Skype resets me all the time to "available" That sort of defeats the purpose of asking if I want to remain invisible.
