  1. Bitmojis

    Bitmojis...no idea why skype isn’t allowing users to send bitmojis to others. They have a billion ugly emoji choices but can’t even let bitmojis. They provide such a great service and should be allowed. It’s 2020 and I think it’s about time skype got on board with bitmojis. Thanks. Plz vote so we can get this going. #Bitmojis2020

  4. 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.

  7. Prevent USER members of a group disconnecting or muting other users.

    I have created a group of 24 students. Very carefully (and tediously I may add) I have set each member of the group to USER status and kept myself and one other as ADMIN. In a GROUP CALL this status seems to have no effect as USER members of the group can mute or disconnect others, including the ADMIN. Whilst this causes much amusement to students, it is disruptive. Please consider disabling mute and disconnection features for USER members of a group. Please also make it easier to edit privileges rather than using codes in a chat window.

  13. Unlinking Skype from Microsoft or but transferring to another Microsoft account

    Is it technically impossible to unlink Skype account form Microsoft account, or ist it just an unwillingess of Microsft to do that. Many of us have the same issue and my opinion is that Microsoft is dooing nothing.

  15. Skype ID

    Please make it possible for one to change Skype ID. Having to give people default idea isn’t a good idea at all! Especially in a case where someone combined their email and perhaps one email is more official than the other and then Microsoft will have an unofficial name on the Skype account. Not fair at all.

  17. Only organizer or group calls has the control

    I've been teaching to kids using this tool and they discovered they can disconnect their classmates from the call. It would be PERFECT if only I could control that.

  18. Link correct Skype account with Microsoft account

    Allow linking original Skype (pre-Microsoft) with Microsoft account. I have a duplicate Skype account that I do not use linked to my MS account. I would very much like to link my correct Skype to my correct MS account. Add Skype account and replace. Doesn't have to delete, but should unlink.

    Also be able to change pre-MS Skype Name.

  20. call admin management

    I suggest the ability to decide group call administrators. to take away the administrator power of some people in group calls. I also suggest activating a call log to understand who removes other people from the call. These functions are useful in conferences and in call management
