  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. New group chat host!

    So my idea is when a "guest" makes a group chat then leaves it the next person that joined the group chat that was signed in should be the "MASTER" or "Host"

  17. Adjustable Mic Sensitivity

    A way to adjust the sensitivity of the mic input. As an example, I'm a heavy breather, so I would make my microphone less sensitive so that it will only pick up when I talk. That would help(my friends and colleagues) immensely.

  18. Why is the camera always in 'mirror' mode?

    Please provide a video setting so that I can 'un-mirror' my camera, and thus use my (second) camera to show a printed document? A 'share window' facility would be useful, too.

  20. Why don't you bring back the old Skype versions so we don't have to come here any longer. Just deleting multiple chats in one go is arduous
