  4. Make an option to scan the files you want to download in Skype from a Skype scanner

    After you click accept in Skype to download a file, make a virus scan called Skype Scanner to make sure the file doesn't have any harm, so you can be 100% complete safe, and make it an advanced scan so you make sure Skype is positive that you are 100% safe.

  6. 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.

  10. Ruolo amministratore per chat di gruppo - Managing role for group chat

    Sarebbe interessante poter scegliere se la chat di gruppo abbia un'amministratore (che sia l'unico che possa avviare la chiamata e che una volta che decida di chiuderla per tutti, nessun altro possa rientrarci) - It would be interesting to be able to choose if the group chat has an administrator (who is the only one who can start the call and that once he decides to close it for all, no one else can return it)

  11. 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.

  13. This is about privacy

    I would like the function with privacy that can block the other party being able to start a recording at all. I know we can see if its being recorded but i would like the option of being able to block it in the first place. Many of us need skype more than ever and privacy is paramount. IF this can happen ASAP please

  20. The ability to delete phone call or chat history

    With emails I am able to delete any or all conversations I have had. I would like to see an option that would allow erasure of any or all phone call history and/or chats
