  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).

  4. tel protocol

    Please fix the latest Skype to be a protocol handler for the TEL protocol in Windows 10. This capability is critical for click-to-call in Web sites and it worked in earlier versions. The bug is being discussed here:

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. See who's ending call for everyone.

    I would be very happy to see the person ending the call rapidly (without reason).It disturbs too much when in a group call.

  8. 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

  10. 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.

  12. Remove everything from Full Screen

    8.62 now has that black bar at the bottom that won't fade away. Bring back the old days when everything would fade including my profile pic (unless I'm using my cam too) and just keep the skype watermark in the corner. Even the watermark had an option to be removed. I want a true full screen experience without all the clutter.

  13. Request to extend the time frame for recordings

    Hi Team,

    I understand Skype currently provides option to download recordings for 30 days and older. However, it would be helpful if its possible to extend the time frame of the recordings to atleast 1 year so we can download some older recordings. I am actually in need of downloading the recordings of April 2020 from a specific group that I belong to.

    Please let me know if Skype can consider this request as a one-off and help me to extend the time frame only for this group

  15. 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.

  16. 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)

  17. Option to change the ringtone to custom

    You should be able to have your own custom ringtone on which you could download, and skype should have some of their own ringtones too

  19. Sharing computer audio while screen sharing on a Mac!

    Please make it so that I can share my computer's audio while screen sharing on a Mac. You can do it using PC's, so I don't understand why it isn't a feature on Mac's.
