  1. record video call full screen

    when we record video call it splits the screen to 4 person but we only need one of them in full screen

    i searched a lot and found nothing how to do that

    please make it adjustable so we can choose which camera we want to record and add full screen option

  2. Headset

    Please can you enable the Skype iPad App to work with an external headset which is plugged in via the Apple USB to lightening camera adapter. The headset works in other apps plugged in via the adapter but not Skype :-(

  3. Recording all Skype calls, not just Skype to Skype.

    I used to be able to record all Skype calls, not just Skype to Skype. G-Recorder had a great application that did just that, but since MS took over Skype, G-Recorder could not longer support itself. The new version of Skype won't allow the use of G-Recorder, so now I can't do ALL call recording. In my profession, this is very badly needed.

  4. Video Call small window buttons

    During video call, when other than the skype window is focused and the small video call window appears, the small buttons (mic, camera, end call, share screen) would be nice if they appear only when cursor move there and not fixed buttons. Fixed buttons block the content of what we are looking at.

  6. Sometime the image is flipped upside down. So there must be feature to adjust image like 'Rotation-left, rotation-right' etc.

  7. Screen share

    I would like to be able to share my screen without it taking up the other viewers’ full screens. Specifically, I would like the option to have my picture in the grid replaced by my screen share and not have the screen share take over the chat.

  8. "Start my audio (mic) automatically" too.

    "Start my audio (mic) automatically" too.
    You have this for video (cam), but not for audio. For people with disabilities, they might want auto-answer on, but might not want anyone to just hear what's in the room if they happen to call in. It would be really useful for them to allow a call to begin but the microphone be muted -- the equivalent option to video but for microphone.

  9. خفض الاسعار للاتصال لليمن

    Hello my brothers, I am Abdel-Qader Jubran, from Yemen, residing in Saudi Arabia. I tried Skype to call to Yemen, very cool. But you know that most of the regions of Yemen do not have internet for that regular connection is very expensive now I hope you reduce the prices to call to Yemen or increase the number of minutes

  10. full duplex audio

    Many years ago Skype had an advanced audio option to enable a true full duplex path. Later, the option was removed but the related registry key to set it still worked.

    A slew of d.d.g. searches today didn't bring up that registry key. How is full duplex audio currently enabled? As currently set, I have to speak right at the camera's microphone so the other party sees my mouth like Patricia Quinn's at the start of the RHPS.

    Thanks in advance.

  11. customisable ringtones (again)

    Please please please, implement customisable ringtones! It's been requested for ages and nothing is happening. What's more the only ringtone itself is arrhythmic. It's a bit of a "heck it, will do" attitude.

  13. Being able to see participants to a call when sharing a power point presentation

    This is not a new idea it used to be normal. When sharing a power point slide show (full screen) it would be good to be able to still see the participants to the call in a small window in the corner of the screen.

  14. Dialing Bug

    Hello fellow Developers.

    Under the following premise, what happens when you have 2-step validation enabled to access your work account in microsoft at the URL https://login.microsoftonline.com/, it tells you to put username and password, then how is it configured the option that sends SMS to the phone number sends it or if you prefer make a validation call (dial from anywhere in the world), the call or SMS message validation is made and you enter your account.

    Now what happens if in Mexico specifically in Mexico City the numbers with the code 55 are finished and the code 56…

    In a group call we have quite a few members on different time zones and when 2 people are in the call and one logs out the call then shuts down which is annoying having to enter the command to start the call up again in the old build the call was kept up and running i would appreciate it being introduced into this build

  16. Ability to Record One Person

    The Skype recording is great, but I conduct interviews that are used for education/instructional purposes to students and they only need to see the person I'm interviewing. It would be ideal if there was an option to turn off the split screen and only record the person being interviewed.

  19. Option to choose which people you want to call in a group (avoiding to ring the call for everyone)

    Sometimes you need a group to keep people updated about the work they are doing together, however, sometimes you have meetings with just part of the people in the group, but still want that the video recorder or the messages shared keep inside the group for the other participants. It's very annoying to call everybody all the time. In DISCORD, for instance, with you start a call with SHIFT pressed you start alone and the interested people ingress on it. It's one way to do that...and make all the diference for goups where people did call often.

  20. A select all option to delete recent calls
