  4. merge incoming video calls

    Want to be able to add an incoming video caller into an existing group video chat.

    At the moment when I am on a group video chat and someone else contacts me I have to answer them separately, tell them to hang up and then invite them to into the group video chat that way. Not good at all.

  5. spraak

    mijn stem klinkt slecht en ik ben vaak moeilijk te verstaan door een ziekte (MS). nl een heel ese en zware stem (doffe stem)
    is het mogelijk om mijn stemtoon te veranderen ,bvb met een equalizer ?
    anders heeft het geen nut dat ik de betaalversie neem.

                          dank u

  8. On the settings menu, audio and video, one can only put an image. How about adding a video.

    On the settings menu, under audio and video, one can only put an image. How about adding another feature such as a video.

  12. Request to bring back Screenshot button on the calling screen itself

    Please give the 'Screenshot' button on the calling screen itself, as it was before. Do not hide it inside the three dots at the bottom-right corner.

  16. Change "Skype name" to be labeled "Account Id" and "name" to "display name/ user name" to eliminate confusion

    Current labels within the profile are very confusing to the end user and should be changed to clarify what labels are internal tags and which ones are used for searching for users on the platform

  18. Real Touch Tones, please!

    When using the Windows 10 Skype App to call actual telephone numbers, Skype plays goofy discordant tones to the caller instead of classic actual Touch Tones (DTMF tones).

    This tone substitution is needless and annoying It's not cute or pleasant, and it detracts from the paid user experience when making telephone calls.

    Please allow paid users to selection an option to hear actual DTMF Touch Tones when they use Skype Out to 'dial' telephone numbers. Thank you!

  19. Number keypad should be visible during telephone conference calls

    When using the Windows 10 Skype App, the number keypad should be visible during telephone conference calls. When callers use Skype Out to call 2 or more actual telephone numbers, the telephone number keypad disappears and prevents the caller from entering Touch Tones used by telephone menus.

    Microsoft / Skype should keep the telephone number keypad visible during ALL telephone calls made from the Windows 10 Skype App -- including telephone conference calls. WTF?

  20. Call progress tones

    When I call telephone numbers using Skype Out, Microsoft replaces the normal telco call progress tones (ringback, busy signal, special information tone, call waiting distinctive ring, etc) with their useless and annoying melody that conveys nothing useful to the caller and hinders their ability to hear the actual telephone company call progress tones.

    This does a disservice to paid users, who should be given the option to disable Skype's useless, annoying, and counterproductive melody when making outgoing calls to telephone numbers. WTF?
