  2. Idea

    Hi, This is Fawad.
    I'd recommend and request you guys to introduce a notepad in the application of Skype, as well as in the online Skype. It'd be appreciated and will help people like me, who use Skype on daily basis. Thanks

  4. I want a new skype call recording option to be added with additional features like reselcting,resizing,crooping specific speaker's video

    We do online classes in Skype group, if you miss a class in any way, it is recorded, it is not supposed to be a problem, there are snapshots on it again, so what the teacher has written on the board or on the computer, can be easily noted later. When a teacher is explaining an important reaction technique or focusing on a specific line in a math solution or something that is difficult to note without watching live, just looking at snapshots, or not understanding. In that case, when the record class is repeated, instead of watching the teacher's…

  17. Change or Reset Skype Name

    So you guys know people get married, divorce, change their names, interests lose relevance, etc. right?

    For those of us who have been on Skype since before the GUID was used for your Skype name we are stuck with whatever that name we set was, not only isn't that my name anymore but as a trans woman it's really important to me not to be running into my old name constantly. Unfortunately, you can't let me rename it, nor can you reset it so I get a generic GUID like you currently use. And since I can't close my Skype…

  18. A toggle switch to disable Skype's recording feature

    I teach on Skype a lot, and prefer that my sessions NOT be recorded by my students, because these sessions are between the student and I, and no one else. Forwarding such lessons once they are recorded is too easy! I would like to see some kind of option where >I< can prevent the other party from recording a Skype video call. Thank you.

  20. Transferring the old Skype login to another Microsoft account.

    Why is the problem of transferring the old Skype login to another Microsoft account or merging two Microsoft accounts with the choice of the required Skype login still not resolved? Without any of these features, many users experience problems using the app!
    Please return this opportunity to the user, do not complicate their life!
    If this task is not feasible, then at least solve the problem with the ability to log in under a different login to the Skype application on Windows Phone 10 mobile device!
    Thank you for understanding!
