    Automatic answering and video is essential for elderly and impaired users to stay in touch during this pandemic and isolation. Why remove it in the latest version??? It should be improved and made more secure. Please ASAP.

  5. share ipad screen while skyping on mac

    A nice feature of Zoom is the ability to run the zoom meeting on my mac, and share my iPad screen during the zoom meeting either through a wifi connection or when the iPad is connected to the Mac. I would love to have this feature on Skype.

  6. Chat view mode for sent videos

    It would be a handy feature if sent videos didn't force the entire screen to be taken up when viewing them. It's difficult to listen to and view the background call when videos are played back. In addition to this, it would also be nice to include a mute function if not proper volume and playback controls for those videos, as it gets in the way of calls quite a lot of the time.

  10. Automatically call answer with locked pc screen or the display turned off

    For disabled people or just to let watch your room or what is looking your webcam (for example your pet). It's important that the function answer automatically incoming calls can work when windows is locked. Actually if the PC is locked or the display is turned off the function answer automatically incoming calls doesn't work anymore. Thanks.

  11. There should be some system tag where if another person is on call, should show as red

    There should be some system tag where if another person is on call, should show as red so that we dont call them multiple times

    It will help calling someone when the sign is green meaning , he is not on another call

  12. Calling features

    Like Discord people should be able to lower or higher someones volume. You use to be able to end the ringing for different memebers of a group, the feature has been removed in the last few years. When you mute a group you shouldnt still be getting calls, that's the whole point of muting a group or person, to not receive notifications from them. On do not disturb I still get get calls popping up and so do other people I've asked. Given how big Skype is and how many people report the same issues or similar issues you would…

  14. Subtitle

    The subtitle feature works great, but would it be possible to have a transcript of the subtitles saved somewhere and available at the end of the call? I would happily pay extra for such a feature

  16. voice comments

    I want 'voice comments' in skype, when you press e.g. Ctrl+Mute, all you say into the "muted" microphone is recorded into a separate track -- so anyone can leave comments they can listen to again later, but not disturbing the speaker's speech flow (a lecturer, maybe) during the process (of communication or lecture). Thanks.

  17. calling

    when you're in a call and another person calling in the same time please add ❎ close window to that calling window otherwise it is a problem when you in a screen sharing that call hiding some of the screens but if you add close button easily we can close with one click

  18. Play a video with its original sounds during share screen

    I would like my phone, which is android 6.0.1 for now, to be able to perform a share screen where I can play a video with its original sounds. Currently, it does not play it with its sound. Presenting a video is part of my teaching methods to my students. One more thing I wish is allowing me to mute or unmute myself during video screen sharing, like Zoom on a computer. I use Skype weekly.
