  1. Please return support for Skype 7.

    Please return support for Skype 7. the New version sucks to put it mildly. Please return support for Skype 7 and older versions. The new Skype does not have such features, unlike the classic one. For example: there is no "offline" status. PLEASE RETURN THE CLASSIC SKYPE.

  3. Full Participant Gallery View

    I would love to see a gallery view similar to other video conferencing platforms. A view where all of the participants in the call can be seen simultaneously. Though I understand that there may be legitimate reasons to keep the image larger and limit the number who are visible, the current version with 4 participants and the ribbon up top is useless for a large group discussion. Thank you!

  5. Skype for Teaching -- whiteboard, etc...

    Give an additional module to the basic Skype , and call it 'skype for teaching' with whiteboard function and other functions that may be useful for people using Skype for teaching , but NOT using the business version as that is not specific enough in scope / purpose to be used for Teaching / Tuition over skype.

  14. I suggest to add creative feature on Emojis.

    I suggest to add creative feature on Emojis. Because of lockdown many people are not able to go to salons for their grooming. I think it will be great fun things in these days.

  20. It would be great to have the option to record "full screen" instead of split screen 50/50. I'm a journalist recording interviews for news
