  2. Enable group video chats on Echo Show (Alexa)

    What I want to get working-

    2 or more smartphones with the latest skype app to connect to 1 Echo show with it's own account

    Currently only peer-to-peer is supported (Only one person can skype to an Echo show at a time).

  3. Display video of more than 4 users in grid view

    Please allow more than 4 callers to display simultaneously in grid view when in a group video call. Just have it resize the windows smaller as more than 4 people join the call so that everyone can see everyone else all the time.

  4. Calls Administrator

    I'd like to be able to control members’ videocalls as administrator, in order to avoid they can exclude or mute each other from conversation.

  5. removing from call

    I think you should add a option to see which participant is muting or removing others or restrict removing and muting options only to admins

  6. Group call on Echo Show

    Enable Skype group call on Echo Show! This is extremely important in this period of global emergency and elderly people use Echo Show to communicate with their relatives.

  9. Skype meeting Admin Control

    For the Skype meeting module, host should be able to control the meeting. currently, any participant is able to remove other participants.
    Introduction of new features (admin controls) would help skype to compete with other players in the marker like zoom.

  11. Remove feature: "Remove from call" for everyone exept the host.

    The availability of the option "remove from call" makes it such that immature persons are finding it fun to pres.

    In these times where online meetings and tutoring are most needed this causes great disturbances. This type of control should only be available to the host. (same goes for muting a person)

  12. Only Host should have the power to remove any individual from the meeting.

    We are facing a lot of difficulty while attending an important group call. This is bacause the power of removing anyone is in the hands of everyone which causes discomfort or the meeting becomes meaningless.
    I would request to please bring some changes , either put the Power of removing anyone in the hands of host or do display the name of the user who is removing the other candidates.
    I will be highly grateful for this awesome consideration.
    Thankyou

  16. How can I stop other participant to remove me from the group call . The app should block this feature to mute or remove other participant.

    The aap should block thjs featurs or give the name of the culprit who is removing continuously the other participant. And only the host of tghe group should have that authority. And I think the aap dont have any concern abkut their aap users

  18. Removal from audio or video call in a group by another participant

    When a participant is removed by another participant from an ongoing audio or video call in a group, he/she should be informed by whom he/she is removed.

  19. Alexa group chat

    My 86 year old mum has an Alexa show which I Skype her on every night (which is great and simple for her). My brother and her grandsons live in New Zealand and we’d love to be able to group video chat with her. Any chance of updating the Alexa Skype software to allow this

  20. remove from call

    At the moment we have to do schooling via skype. (BTW thanks for opportunity!) But it happend that someone of our pupils removes other participants from the call. Is there any option to cancel this option for all the participants? Maybe it could do the admin only? And the same for "Mute someone"
    That would be very helpful dor us now. Thanks
