  3. FOR SKYPE GROUPS LET ADMIN CONTROL WHO CAN BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP

    I TEACH ONLINE AND HAVE LOTS OF SCHOOL STUDENTS IN VARIOUS GROUPS OVER THE WEEK. BOYS PLAY THE FOOL SOMETIMES AND REMOVE THEIR CLASSMATES DURING THE COURSE OF THE CLASS, WHICH DISRUPTS THE CLASS NO END. They also mute my microphone at times. If I can have a feature which allows me control over my group, it will be fantastic. I have been covered on the skype blog too and have doubled my students since then.

  4. Please allow personalised voicemail greetings.

    Instead of the default Skype voicemail greeting, it would be much better if you could personalise the greeting before someone leaves a message.

  6. Allow for “ringtone” change

    Please allow us to change our Skype “ringtone” to something of our choosing. Let us make changes to what ringtone we want our contacts to have. I have missed numerous calls because I didn’t identify the sound. It isn’t distinct. It does not matter how loud my volume is; I can’t hear the Skype call. I like using classic ringtones and music as ringtones because it’s attention-grabbing and I can assign a specific ringtone to each of my contacts so i am able to identify who is calling without having to look at he phone screen.

  7. Disable screen sharing

    There shoud be a possibility to disable incoming screen sharing for parental control e.g. to prevent a child from viewing inappropriate content from the opposite computer during a call.

  8. Changeable ringtones

    I feel that people should be able to change their ringtones for certain contacts. For an example, if I have a friend on Skype, I could set them a custom ringtone so I know if its them calling.

    Also, the ability to set default ringtones for all contacts.

  9. Annoying "Give me a call when you're back" message

    Please, provide a way to completely disable "Give me a call when you're back" message when someone doesn't answer my call? I don't want to send this message. I understand this suggestion when it appears within a popup when the call ended (failed), but when I close this popup I really don't want this draft message to be sent. Instead I see this text in the message input field. I think it's bad for UX. It's simply annoying.

  10. Can we change our ring tone

    I do like the default ring tone but I think it would help me and others if we could change our ring tone so we didn’t hang up to easily and we wouldn’t always be listening to the same thing

  13. Push to talk

    Push to Talk. It is a thing. Literally every other VoIP app has this and Skype used to from what I gather.

    Thank you all for your comments and votes around this topic! We definitely understand the need here, so I want to let you know that the Skype team is working on it. We will bring push-to-talk to Skype for Windows 10 first and later on to Skype for Windows desktop. I’ll post an update when it’s available :)

  14. Message sounds

    Bring back all the different message sounds so we can choose again instead of having that awful sound that you cant hear on the desktop.

  15. During the screen sharing in full screen mode, it is impossible to keep seeing the Skype chat window

    During the screen sharing in full screen mode, it is impossible to keep seeing the Skype chat window. This has existed in the previous versions of Skype, so that during a call when the screen sharing mode is turned on, both parties keep having access to a smaller but operative chat window (enabling turning on and off the sharing, seeing each other, as well as chatting). In the current and recent versions of Skype as soon as you turn the screen sharing mode together with full screen mode, the chat window immediately disappears.

  18. voicemail

    How about letting people record/set their own custom voicemail greetings? For personal customers it would be fun...
    For business customers, it could be invaluable when they are busy

  19. Add a Push to Talk

    Hi, I suggest that Skype adds a button for muting the microphone rather than having to go back onto Skype and clicking "Unmute". Push to Talk is a good name.
