  4. View only one side of a conversation, in a Skype recording.

    As a music student, like many others, I am taking lessons by Skype, during the pandemic. I record my lessons, so that I can note comments and ideas from my teacher and listen to him playing parts of the piece I am learning, for review during the coming week. However, this is less useful than it could be, ie. because I can see both parties on the recording and the screen is split, I can't see how he is placing his fingers of either hand on the classical guitar, which is crucial to my learning. It would be hugely beneficial…

  12. Device Switch during an ongoing Video Chat

    Just like I do while on an active Video Chat on Facebook Messenger...

    For instance; I answer the incoming Skype Video call over my Cell Phone Device, but I decide to want to free my call without losing the current Video Skype Chat, by jumping onto my Laptop/ Tablet or any other device of choice, and continue chat by switching to that other device automatically upon opening Skype Video conversation on that device and vice versa.

  14. Suggestion - Skype Number How to use multiple skype numbers by easy select the outbound Caller ID within the Skype dial pad

    Hello Skype Folks,

    as many of you all i am looking for ways how to make life easier and how to simply it where I can.

  16. User can optionally choose between his/her many Subscriptions

    I have 2 subscriptions, and because of the current "limitless rule", one of them is almost never used even when the first is all consumed.
    I am suggesting to create an option to enable the user to choose the subscription he/she needs to use.
    Alternately cancel the current "limitless rule".
    Thanks, B.

  17. Hi everebody!

    When I have just a simple call Skype stays on the first layer, and I can see the person I'm calling to. But when I share my screen Skype window disappears. And even when I stop screen sharing Skype does not return back to the first layer. It bothers me so much! It's very inconvenient. I can't see my companion any more! And I have to re-call. Don't you think there should be a button which will allow you to show/hide the skype window whenever you want? There should be one! Please do it.

  18. Breakout session is required for hosting trainings on skype

    During training, dividing participants into breakout sessions is helpful in making them do small group discussions and at the same time remain in main forum.
