  2. Adjusting Volume Controls

    Full control audio control panel;

    Perhaps something with a simplified and an advanced panel that allows certain options to adjust audio levels in Skype, as well as adjust sounds (ie. reconnecting sounds and calling sound) to be disabled, adjusted or changed to a visual representation only.

  3. more color options in high contrast mode

    I want to be able to set the color for text backgrounds in high contrast mode. I use high contrast all the time, but with my own selection of colors, both for window background and window text. I want to have options for those items, and / or an option to use system colors.

  8. Habilitar permisos de administrador en grupos de skype

    Al hacer grupos con alumnos, estos se silencian y se expulsan contínuamente entre ellos, haciendo imposible una videollamada con skype.
    Pido por favor solventen este problema y permitan que una sola persona administre el grupo y que los demás no puedan silenciar ni expulsar gente de dicho grupo.
    Gracias.

  9. Skype 8.59.xx - Give Users Option to stop Auto Updates

    Its annoying that skype forcibly auto updates, without any concern for user's condition.
    Whether the user is on low speed mobile data, has to make a call when laptop starts after2-3 days, has slow speed.
    It's irritating to find that there seems to be no way to disable Skype's updated, which happens atleast once a week.

    Skype is a good tool, dont irritate the user so much that the user starts to look for alternatives.

    Few more forced updates and I will definitely loose my patience.

    Hope the team listens to it and drops one update, letting user to control…

  10. МОДЕРИРУЕМЫЙ ЧАТ для работы с группой в самой новой версии скайп.

    Необходима возможность создать МОДЕРИРУЕМЫЙ ЧАТ для работы с группой. В старых версиях скайп такая функция была. За это огромнейшая благодарность!!! Сейчас тоже она нужна. Благодарю за понимание! С Уважением Якубович В.В.

  13. Meet Now should allow "Share Invite" in Outlook 365. It allows gmail but not Outlook

    Meet Now allows "Share Invite" e-mail via Gmail but not Office 365 Outlook. When trying to select Outlook under Share Invite one is asked to sign in. When using the sign in feature even though one is signed into the office account a message is given "You can't sign in here with a personnel account. Use your work or school account instead." It does not make sense that a Gmail account can forward and invitation but a 365 Office subscription cannot.

  14. Maybe it could be helpful to see and have access to history of actions made by any user (individual/business). Example: History of kicking.

    I think it would be helpful for group admins to see what other users are doing, as You introduced the option of kicking people and muting them during a conversation, it could be abused by some, making the conversation not pleasurable. By saying "see what other users do" i mean an activity log with described action and information about time and date of it.
    Thank You for considering that idea.
    Best regards.

  16. Last Seen On Rules

    Allow settings on how the Last Seen on update is determined by the contact whether just by it being Active, Away or other status. Also, actually show the date/time instead of days ago, when it is over several days since last seen.

  17. Can we bring back logging into skype with facebook?

    when I first was introduced to skype I was able to sign/log in with my facebook acount. and because skype no longer had this feature, I lost that account and I had some important things on it that I wasn't able to save on time. so I was hoping that maybe we could bring that back? or atleast maybe have someone help with achieving this for me?

  20. Have a setting option within Skype to make Skype knock out all other internet use on the same broadband internet line

    It'd be useful to be able to stop others using the internet simultaneously so as to maintain required band width for Skype to avoid increased latency & loss of sound/video quality from another application trying to use the same line.
