  1. Include computer audio files (speech and/or music) into Skype video call

    Ability to incorporate audio files, MP4, etc, to illustrate points in conversation - external sound sources through other speakers and picked up by computer microphone results in very low (muted) sound by receiver

  2. I like the new subtitles feature. It potentially provides the notes from an online meeting. How to save these to a file?

    I like the new subtitles feature. It potentially provides the notes from an online meeting. How to save these to a file? I'm hearing loss. I use Skype for online school course. It would be very useful to me to be able to save the conversation received ..... which would be the school lesson

  4. Auto-answer calls in full screen

    Auto-answer is presently a feature, but Skype video is in a smaller window/box. To expand to full screen, person must manually select full screen. Auto-answer should have a sub-feature (switch) to enable full screen mode or standard window option.

  7. We should have an option to stream games that we're playing

    Allow users to stream video games by having some kind of connection with Steam or any application that we're using. Discord has this feature but it's poorly implemented and only works for Windows 10 and up. If you can make this accessible to any version of Windows, it will make a lot of people very happy, especially in a time like this.

  8. Help Need a way to Pin the teacher/speaker/person talking's video!

    My kids are taking a ballet class on Skype with 25 other kids while we are forced to stay home for COVID-19. Even with the other mics muted, and in speaker view, the teacher's video is often not what is shown. It is infuriating you can't right click on the teacher's name and Pin them so they are always the one you see. Through work I can use this feature on Teams.

  9. Ability to locally mute a participant during group video calls

    There should be an option where I can mute a person during a group video call in such a way that I am the only one who cannot listen to them while rest of the participants can.

  10. Ability to share system audio when sharing screens on Ubuntu/Mac

    I can share system audio when sharing screens on Windows, but the same functionality is not available on Ubuntu, Mac or iOS. Such functionality should be available across platforms.

  11. Expelling people from video calls only by administrator

    It is very annoying when during a video call people keep expelling other people from it. As a teacher who uses Skype for her lessons, I would like to see that option removed and only available for the administrator.

  14. option pour indiquer sur quelle vidéo je veux rester figée

    Pour les sourds, il y a besoin de permettre au sourd de focaliser sur une seule vidéo qui serait celle de l'interprète en Langue des signes et non le dernier qui parle.

  19. Feature to replicate real live communication model

    I've an idea to solve the problem of multiple attendees.
    The call should have a different model/swith it's for "hosted", (school, seminary), or "on pear" (fun, collaboration).
    My concept it's based on a study of the model of the real live communication.
    We need to replicate it in web conferencing, otherwise after a while it's always headache.
    Despite the constant improvements, none solved the problem.
    I think everybody think so.
    It's necessary the use of voice recognition and some automation in the call based on it.
    As a project manager I thought to develop by myself or to study some…

  20. Group call list

    There should be a way out to find out (after a group audio/ video call) who all actually joined the call ( having join and drop time would be even better). This can be seen during the call, but seems no way one can do this after the call. This des exits in Skype for business.
