  2. Please fix the contact list options so it can display just Skype contacts regardless if they are on, offline or DND or unavailable.

    Please fix the contact list options so it can display just Skype contacts regardless if they are on, offline or DND or unavailable. On another note contacts do NOT have to be individually listed and separated under each letter of the alphabet.

  5. Chat with others with using capture board connected with normal PTZ camera(Not with webcam)

    Most people use webcam for live chat.
    But some place, like where has already camera systems, the user in this place would want to use their camera while using PTZ(Pan/Tilt/Zoom) with capture board.
    In this case, the camera resolution wouldn't be improtant.
    The importan thing would be the compatibility with their camera systems.
    If they use multiple cameras with switcher, that would be very useful.

  6. dial-in

    Hi. Can you introduce phone dial-in for Skype to make the functionality like that of Zoom, Webex and GoToMeeting. This will allow some participants of a conference call to dial in from their phone while others join through their Skype Mobile / Web / Desktop app while being bridged to the same conference call.

  7. Chat input field too small and too low on a PC screen. Move it the towards the center of the screen, or allow resizing it.

    Move the chat input field towards the center of the PC screen (when maximized)

    When you type on a PC it is more natural to look at the center of the screen not at the very bottom.

    Sometimes, when maximized and auto show for Windows taskbar is turned on, the taskbar hides the chat input partially. This happens when another program has notification and Windows shows the taskbar with the blinking program.

    The previous version of Skype had the possibility to resize the chat input field, so this issue was not there.

  9. Be able to lock chosen default speakers.

    I want to be able to lock my default speaker choice. I use blue tooth headphones and when I turn them off, it sets the speaker setting back to the computer speakers. Every time I want to use my headphones, I have to go back to settings, and reset for my blue tooth headphones.

  13. reciving files with in skype using voiceover for mac, and jaws for windos and NVDA

    Hey this is stephen from tennessee, one of the features that was in Skype, before you took Skype over, was being able to receive files. There used to be commands for this, for voice over for Mac, and jaws for windows, and,NVDA. I was told that this feature was not available yet. And correction, it was, and I would like to know why it was taken out? Please by all means, if you would bring this back, that would be really helpful. Thanks.

  16. some hotkeys for windos for jaws and nvda do not work with in skype, as well as voiceover.

    Hey this is stephen Owen, some of the hotkeys in skype do not work.

    For instance, opening the main Skype window, it says, four windows, it is not applicable. If someone could fix this, that would be great. and this is for jows and nvda

    another issue, is, the open help and default browser for voiceover for Mac command is not applicable. If someone could fix this, that would be great.

    another issue on the mac side is, opening recent chats, does not work on the Mac. It says that it is not applicable. If someone could fix this, that…

    Better Customer Service Expected

    I had a bad experience with the customer care, Due to the wrong commitment and lack of knowledge of an advocate one of my old used subscription got cancelled ( Case Number 1465887337)

    Is there a way to get back the subscription Skype Premium Unlimited?

  20. Ability to copy numbers again

    I get a lot of calls from numbers that I need to register. In the last version I was able to simply copy the number from the top of the screen. in this version you seem to be trying to go out of your way to hide the number so I can't use skype for my job. Please add that back. For god's sake you can't even right click in the recent calls tab
