  1. There should be a feature to change a skype sound! (yes i know a lot of people suggesting this feature)

    There should be a setting in the Skype app to change a notification sound. if it's in skype for business, just port the feature over to skype. it's kinda easy. how to use it would pretty much be like this. settings > general > Ringtones And Sounds > Customize.

  2. A key stroke function reset

    i continually hit cntrl "T" while typing. The letter "T" with shift is used a **** of a lot in english I notice, and instead of hitting shift accurately, if I am a bit tired, I miss the shift key and hit the cntrl key which activates anolther screen and sometime takes me to skype help. It can be very frustrating. I would like to be able to chose to deactivate the cntrl "T" when i need to. Other key stokes are not such an issue.

  6. "Meet Now" looks like Spyware

    I just spent the past few min trying to find this program in add/remove programs thinking it piggy backed on another piece of software. I only started to google it after I couldn't find it...

    Comon guys... I understand this isn't really a new program, but wow, did you intend for it to look exactly like some PUP I got from installing freeware?

  10. Together Mode

    Hello all,
    I really have a problem during my online meetings.
    Suddenly the "together-mode" appears, even I don't want that.
    So, I am asking how can I stop this mode? I know, I can remove the mode from the call. But after doing that, some minutes later, it appears again. And I suggest it depens from the amount of people participating the meeting? As soon as there are more then 4 people the mode appears.

    Another question I have concerning this mode: Maybe the participants can activate the mode also?

    I am looking forward to your feedback.

    Thank you in…

  14. I want to be able to share system sound in Skype for Mac

    I want to be able to share system sound in Skype for Mac. It is possible using other apps, so why Skype is not working on Mac I cannot really understand.

  15. time of day for contacts

    I know people in different time zones throughout the world. It would be helpful to be able to see what time it is at THEIR time zone whenever I look to their name in contacts. I would welcome such an option in settings to view our local time and their time if I choose.

  19. Direction of call

    Can the direction of call be simply shown on the log? I don't know whether to report someone is scamming me or I have missed a legitimate call.

  20. Make auto update optional please!!

    Please allow us to have the option to update Skype, the latest version for my mac is broken and it took ages to figure this out and download an earlier version that works, very annoying indeed.
