  2. Mute all participants microphones at once

    Please , if someone is the host in "Meet Now", it would be great to have the option to mute all participants at once until you want them to talk. It's annoying to give a speech or a class and to have particpants permanently turning on their microphones and interrupting.

  3. Fix Together Mode and Speaker View's weird bugs

    Thanks for the together mode but it has this weird thing that on a moderated group any general member activating together mode activating it for the entire meeting. I have 20/30 people in the conference and using white board. Any single one opening together mode messing up everyone's view mode. But this feature should be like view only for the person activating it right? as in MS Teams? Also the Speaker View gets stuck most of the time to a person whether s/he is speaking or not, which is very crazy in a conference situation. I am in a situation…

  4. Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work the way it should.

    Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work properly. If shows some random gray boxes as well as with overlay windows as gray boxes too, although the window below is getting shared. This is weird that the same feature works perfectly on MSTeams but not on Skype. Please correct the layers. This is very important for my current presentation scenario.

  7. please please PLEASE bring back the background it is not in the latest version and skype updates automatically so i cannot get it back :(

    every one knows about the background issue... In the new update that feature was deleted and now we can "share articles" with fellow skype users. I feel that should be part of skype business and the background option should still be available. as you all know, skype usually updates automatically so i am not able to get this feature back. PLEASE BRING IT BACK WHEN A NEW UPDATE IS AVAILABLE!

  16. 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.

  17. Apple watch

    Add Skype on the Apple Watch as an app! Easier for phone calls when on the move. It’ll be a great feature as I normally do not carry my phone around the house and hate missing phone calls.

  20. Block incoming phone calls during Skype call

    On an Android 10 phone, incoming phone calls are given priority over a Skype call in progress. That means Skype gets muted until the incoming phone call is dealt with. This is super-disruptive. At present, the only way to deal with it is to put the phone in "do not disturb" mode before making a Skype call, but it would be great if the Skype app had a way of suppressing incoming calls.
