  2. Independent call forwarding settings for multiple skype numbers

    I've two different skype numbers. One is in the USA the other in the UK. I would like to change the order of call forwarding to route incoming calls to the number closest to the skpe number called. For example, if the caller rings the USA skype number, the forwarding will first attempt my designated USA mobile and similarly calls received on the UK number first attempt the UK mobile provided. As you might imagine due to time zone differences, calls forwarded during business hours in the UK to a USA number on the west coast USA is problematic as…

  5. bluetooth

    If a bluetooth headset is connected it should be the default audio device, not the speaker... you know, like any other phone application.

  6. Robocall

    Do not allow calls from numbers not in your Contacts. This feature is listed but does not work as I have it enabled but am still receiving Robocalls. The feature needs to be updated/upgraded. This could boost your user base immensely as cell providers have no solution and everyone is sick of it.

  7. Polyglot support - multiple languages at once

    It would be great if Microsoft could support more than one language at once. This would be a wonderful feature for people who are bilingual, or for polyglots or anyone learning another language. I speak 3 languages at once and the autocorrect features are extremely annoying since I switch my language several times in the span of a few minutes. Changing the language settings the way it is setup now simply doesn't cut it.

  8. editing tool for better, selective management of historic calls, messages, gallery, etc

    improve the editing functions to allow more selective editing to manage call log data effectively. Seems, on MAC OS Sierra, that you can only delete all the history on any particular contact, and only remove content that originator created, not received. There ends up being a huge amount of 'missed call and old voicmessages that cannot be got rid of by receiver, even if you mark it as 'unread from here' it doesn't go away. A massive waste of cloud storage space.

  9. Have section where you can check & edit your password on your laptop -helpful when you get logged out of phone & don't recall new password!

    I just was logged out of the laptop & forced to make a new password, last week. This week, same with my cellphone, but I cannot recall the new one as it happened when I needed to get on in a hurry! Of course same deal now, and way more serious need, but I started up the laptop & checked as other online accounts for other things have that facility, unbelievable that Skype doesn't really!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. "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?

  19. 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…
