  2. Get rid of the loud sound when you call someone

    When you call someone on Skype it plays a loud little jingle until the other person answers. I feel like it could either be quieter, replaced, or just completely gotten rid of

  5. Hello! May I suggest (1) waiting room, (2) breakout rooms, and (3) file sharing. Thank you.

    (1) Waiting Rooms - as security measure for unauthorized entry of (unwanted/unruly) participants. (2) breakout rooms - for groupings among participants, and (3) file sharing among participants in a session (customizable file types which can be shared).

  8. Hide control bar during videocalls

    During a call the control bar at the bottom should be transparent or hidden so that the visible area is larger. Changed with one of the last updates. Would be great to be able to change that back in the settings.

  9. How can I (we) adjust Skype for incoming calls to Ring longer before the call is answered or automatically ended?

    Apparently this feature has not yet been added or included to the Skype Design as an Option or otherwise.
    I consider it too important to overlook in order to avoid missing an incoming call, and invite you to address it, and us at Skype Community regarding this issue in order to 'Meet Business Needs'.

  10. Increase the number of account choices listed in the login page

    Skype Windows App:

    The current limit of 2 accounts offered on the login page is ridiculous. We have my own, wife's and son's account. I use a password manager so the passwords are big and randomised. They can't be remembered. We have to find them and copy and paste every time to log in.

    We have had our accounts a long time and have a history of contacts and chats. When you bought Skype you gave me a new UNWANTED Skype account. This is now your default despite the fact that I never use it so it has no contacts…

  12. Skype Classic back. Please, Please

    Please have the old Skype Classic back. The new one is too hard to use. I miss the old Gui, and the sounds.

    This is not a video game screen and there should be an option to stop it the flashing red light. Thank you

  17. Enable one handed mode

    Add option to move top menus to bottom and drag down moves entire screen down within easy reach. Check out OH Web browser. Just got it and wish every app had these options.
