  2. Meeting with more than one participants

    Skype Business
    After we were told that we needed to work at home due to the Coronavirus, I participated in a Skype meeting with a number of participants. It was difficult to maintain some kind of order to the meeting ( didn’t know when one could speak within talking over another ). I thought could Skype develop a feature, where one could raise a hand to speak, like one does at a meeting?

  3. Having scheduled calls on the side of the chat not as a message

    This would help a lot because if you schedule a call and everyone starts chatting it gets pushed to the top and no one sees it.

    I think it should be on the right side and have the chat in the middle.

  4. Two profiles with the same account

    It would be great to maintain two profiles, one for personal contacts and conversations and one for business (or academic) contacts and conversations

  6. Compatibility issue on iPhone XR (v12)

    Issue description: i am having a compatibility issue on my iphone XR.
    Left and right side top corners are over lapping and making difficult for the user to close by clicking on the x icon in left side.

    Defect Severity - Major with work around
    Model - iPhone XR (v12)
    Expected Result - Its better to resolve the overlap issue or have new implementation by dragging the screen from the centre of screen

  7. It would be great to have the option to record "full screen" instead of split screen 50/50. I'm a journalist recording interviews for news

  8. Skype 8 is JUNK

  9. submit my idea

    If both the person use the emojie in live video call, if there is something unique happen then it will look cool and bit entertaining, Like the hand shake one if both of us click the hand shake emo under 5 sec then actually hand shake happens in the video. and same goes to other emos too.

  11. Suggestion of some game sharing while video calling taking into account of the Covid 19 situation.

    Hello! Could the Skype administration take into account the current (Covid 19 and Social distancing) situation and so incorporate some games while video calling another person, like directly playing/sharing while video calling? No extra payment fees would be appreciated, it would suggest a sense of caring by your company for the whole world society. Games such as Scrabble or Monopoly, or any current constructive games (Not the War or harsh games) would be good.
    Cause young people should not get close to the older generation now, and this interaction might promote quality moments for the loved ones and keep the…

  13. Skype Classic back. Please, Please

    Please have the old Skype Classic back. The new one is too hard to use. I miss the old Gui, and the sounds.

  15. settings

    When in Skype (Preview), and I open Settings, that window is named "Skype". It seems better to name it "Skype Settings".

  17. I would love to be able to insert my name to show on phones that I call in India and Nepal. They would know it is me and not an advertiser.

    When I call India or Nepal the receiver often does not answer because the caller id does not tell them it is me. I would like my name to show on phone calls I make with Skype.
