  6. Barrierefrei Seh-Behinderung

    Barrierefrei ist die neue Skype Version gar nicht. Es gibt sehr viel Menschen mit Seh-Behinderung.
    1,- Unheimlich wichtig wäre das die Grüne und Rote "Telefonsymbol" erhalten bleibt. Es ist für schwach sehenden ohne Hilfe nicht mehr Möglich zu telefonieren mit Skype!

    2,- Warum sehen wir nur Namen und die Profilbilder von Kontakten nicht mehr, wenn wir aus der liste jemand auswählen? 3,- Wieso wird der Chat schreib-Zeile immer kleiner? Diese Änderungen machen aus dem gern genutzten Skype eine nutzloses App.
    Ps. Automatische - Anrufannahme funktioniert bei Windows, Pc/Laptop nicht wenn das App-Fenster nicht geöffnet ist, auch wenn diese durch Hintergrund…

  7. Camera test

    Please add a test audio/video feature so I can line my shot up before an important call/interview. Doing it during a call is highly unprofessional and can make a bad impression.

  8. Personal Message for incoming calls

    I'm in Communications so it is rather important when media people call that they hear my name and my voice so they know they've reached the correct number as they are often on deadlines.

  13. Ensure that sign-in credentials are kept after updating

    Skype updates frequently. After every update it forgets my username and password and I have to re-enter them. This is very inconvenient

  14. Why I stopped using Skype

    I stopped using Skype because of a few issues

    1) I tried to make an account change of an old email address to a new one. I have to wait 30 days before I can get back into my account. This needs to be reduced to a shorter time frame like one week, with different methods of confirmation for security, message a code to the phone number on the account, KYC authorization and confirmation, Face recognition...etc

    2) Recording video for Skype on a Mac. This option is limited and needs more focus on this because power users like myself that…

  16. Skype translator barely working for text and not working at all for voice/video translation Feb 2020

    Yes I've installed and re-installed many times. Also, I know what setup suggestions are. ITS NOT WORKING

    I dont understand why Skype changes things for no reason. It worked last year.

    Now, sometimes it works for 1 person in a video call. But not the other.

    And, Requesting translation is confusing to some people, and when some people click accept, it still only works some of the time.

    Then you can change settings for language, but its not clear if you are changing your own language settings or is it specific to a conversation with a certain language.

    Honestly, just…

  17. Voicemail

    Going back a couple of years we used to be able to have customers leave voicemail messages and it was taken away. I would like to see that feature return.
