  5. Make settings icon always visible in latest desktop app, as it is in Windows 10 Skype app

    In Windows 10 Skype UWP app, settings dots are displayed in conversation pane, even when window size is reduced to show conversation only. Why is latest desktop version not consistent? Settings dots displayed only when Contacts pane is visible.

  11. Recording feature

    I'd like to say that provide a facility or feature where can setup each call will be recorded automatically either audio or video. Even, I can pay some good amount for the same. I'd bought an application Evaer which record all calls with older Skype. Nowadays, could not able find the integration for third-party software in new versions.

  12. Why is the accept calls in skype for business not green?

    It may be that I only have this problem, but when someone calls me, I always press the red button.

    I believe I expect a green button to hit when someone calls me.

    Is there someone else who has this problem?

    I think it's a little odd that Skype does not have a green answer button.

    All phones have a green answer button or a red button when you do not want to answer.

    I suggest you make the reply button in skype green.

  13. Reinstate block number function by right-clicking

    Old version had ability to block numbers by right-clicking and using a drop-down menu (which also included useful functions like "Add to Contacts").
