  2. Hello, I am an American soldier stationed overseas

    Hello, I am an American soldier stationed overseas and we use Skype for official business because of the security features. I was wondering if you could add a feature such as: I am in a meeting right now, I will call you back. The reason for this is that many times I am in a meeting and when someone calls there is no "I am in a meeting at this moment, will call you back.

  4. Float + Full screen option

    The Float + Full screen option hid the icons a few days ago. It was an amazing experience to view the share screen in that mode. The icons "auto-hide" was a good feature

    The option is no more available. Can you please get that back.

  6. It would be great to have the option to record "full screen" instead of split screen 50/50. I'm a journalist recording interviews for news

  8. Touch through the network

    If there exists a device that gives the ability to touch through the network, would you ever want to integrate it into Skype? So we can touch each other, not just see and hear.

  9. Default setting of basic system in Skype

    In a group call by a faculty, students join the call.
    By default, the speaker is off, and the Mic is on.

    This is exactly reverse of what is required.

    [Whenever the students join late, their surrounding noise will keep disturbing the entire lecture] .

    What is required?

    The speaker should be on by default, so every body can listen to the faculty, when they join, without specially making it on

    Every body's Mic should be off so that the noise from the surroundings of every student will not disturb the lecture.

    [After this modification, when the faculty opens the…

  12. virtual hall

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    As you know, Corona did a lot of damage to various industries, including the music industry.

    The closure of concerts, theater performances caused many good musicians and actors to have difficult days.

    As a software engineer, I always believe that there is always a way to continue in any situation.

    An interesting idea based on Team and Skype software came to my mind that if you succeed in implementing it, it can bring prosperity to the market of concerts and theater performances during this period.

    Virtual performance hall, a hall where spectators can remotely interact with…

  13. Message Layout

    The ability to have all messages be on the left side of the chat window, rather than other people's on the left and yours on the right. It can be really difficult for some people to be able to read back on messages with this kind of format.
