  1. If I were to make a recommendation it would be to have more devolution across the integrated Microsoft services.

    If I were to make a recommendation it would be to have more devolution across the integrated Microsoft services. So you can edit you details or close account without shutting down your entire Microsoft account.

  2. Delete obsolete conversations in Skype.

    I still do not know why it is not possible to have the right to manage our conversations and particuarly to delete obsolete conversations in Skype. This software is too rigid.

  4. "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.

  6. 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

  7. 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. group calls

    why cant you explore having group calls that enable the conversation to add a random caller cell phone user to the conversation instead of putting the original call on hold and treat them as separate calls. That would make the whole experience so much better an you can carry the group call without interruption

  12. I have two Skype numbers. Please include the last four digits of covered numbers on subscription renewals. Thanks.

    I have two Skype numbers. Invoices for subscription renewals should include the last four digits of covered numbers. (As of now, there is no indication on invoices as to which phones relate to renewals.)

  14. Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of messages

    Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of youtube and pixiv links

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. automatic notifications

    Hello I would like to suggest automatic notifications. This feature would be great to put a general reply message when you are away from Skype. Example would be a vacation notice or out of office reply.
