  3. 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).

  4. Virtual background

    Zoom communications has a feature that I thought It would be a good idea to add it on skype too. It's a feature called virtual room where you can select an image from your computer and it will replace your background in the camera with this image. But please if you add this technology, try to make this feature to work without any green screen or any other color for transparency

  6. Allow more participants in a Video conference, due to current Corona virus Home-Office situation.

    Due to the latest Corona-Virus measures, many have started working from home and are currently in need of video conferences that often exceed the amount of 50 participants (e.g. our university lectures). I highly suggest that you increase the aforementioned limitation for free and thus, help too as a company during this difficult times.

  9. Prevent USER members of a group disconnecting or muting other users.

    I have created a group of 24 students. Very carefully (and tediously I may add) I have set each member of the group to USER status and kept myself and one other as ADMIN. In a GROUP CALL this status seems to have no effect as USER members of the group can mute or disconnect others, including the ADMIN. Whilst this causes much amusement to students, it is disruptive. Please consider disabling mute and disconnection features for USER members of a group. Please also make it easier to edit privileges rather than using codes in a chat window.

  10. Limit rights of group chat participants

    When using group chat, now there is no way to limit the rights of participants in the conference, which poses certain difficulties. For example, each participant can turn off the microphone of one or more chat participants. You must enable the creator of the group chat to restrict the rights of participants.

  11. Support external usb microphone iPad

    No option to set up a USB microphone under Skype in iPad. Currently using blue yeti USB microphone which works on all other applications under the iPad through an adapter. Skype does not give an option to enable the external microphone for phone calls.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Why dont you add call privelages. Like who gets to kick people or mute mics.Like a class and the teacher has all the power sort of

    My idea is to add call privelages.Now with the outbreak of the virus everyone is skype and not only to have classes and what not. So why should anyone be able to kick someone out of the call whenever they want. For example: Lets say there is a class and they have a call. One of the participants is the teacher. He gets to have all the powers of the call so students dont mess around and kick each other.Why shouldnt the teacher have the only power is what Im suggesting.

  18. 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.

  20. Please Add Spotify or other music compatibility

    I am currently considering skype as a way to host online DND sessions, however I cannot find a good way to share music with others on the call, which is essential for me.The only way i found was to share my screen and computer sound, but that would also reveal my notes since you cannot hide a shared screen(another issue).
