  3. Please allow Skype Web to work in Firefox

    Hi Microsoft Skype engineers and CEO Satya, Google Hangouts and video calls work in Firefox. Hence Microsoft cannot be worse than Google. Please make Skype Web work in FireFox. Microsoft must be the best software company and that means its software works in Firefox too. Don't let Google win.

  4. Push to talk

    Push to Talk. It is a thing. Literally every other VoIP app has this and Skype used to from what I gather.

  5. We want Skype for Android TV

    Although Skype announced the end of support for the Skype application for Smart TVs, Microsoft should reconsider its decision and start supporting at least Skype for the Android TV operating system, that way we could use any Webcam with UVC (USB Video Device Class) such as the Logitech C920, which is currently used by a video call application called Trueconf, which Skype can compete with and regain its leadership in that market.

  8. Separate Audio for each NDI video output

    For the NDI feature what we expect is that Skype creates an NDI video feed per participant (currently this works perfectly) and an audio feed per participant. What's happening is that we are getting audio from all participants in each and every NDI audio feed as a mix. We want it separate so we can have independent control of these camera/audio sources because sometime you need to adjust the audio for someone who is quite or visa versa.

  10. Logo Removal Option for Video Out (Namely NDI)

    Previous versions of Skype allowed for disabling the watermark within the incoming video feed(s). With the move (and first platform to do so I might add) to integrate NDI, the ability to do so has been removed. If Skype is positioning itself to be a continued standard in broadcast and professional remote video, this option needs to return.

  12. Skype should allow me to transfer a call session between devices

    I might start a call on my iPad, or on a web client, but want to transfer my call over to my phone, my surface, my surface hub, mac, or other signed-in devices. I should be able to hit a transfer button to send a call to another active device on my account. There should be a quick hand-off, and the call should activate there without interruption, in group/individual calls.

  14. Annoying "Give me a call when you're back" message

    Please, provide a way to completely disable "Give me a call when you're back" message when someone doesn't answer my call? I don't want to send this message. I understand this suggestion when it appears within a popup when the call ended (failed), but when I close this popup I really don't want this draft message to be sent. Instead I see this text in the message input field. I think it's bad for UX. It's simply annoying.

  15. Mute all participants microphones at once

    Please , if someone is the host in "Meet Now", it would be great to have the option to mute all participants at once until you want them to talk. It's annoying to give a speech or a class and to have particpants permanently turning on their microphones and interrupting.

  16. Raise your hand

    Add a "raise your hand" option for group audio calls which notifies everybody on the call that I (or anyone person) want to speak. This is very useful during meetings. This can be useful during any conference call so at to not to interrupt a speaker in the middle and unlike a video where you can make out from a listener's expression that they might want to talk, on an audio call the only way for someone to convey their intention to speak is to wait till someone finishes their sentence but there might be multiple people who wish to…

  17. Put chat message area back on bottom. Not right/left side.

    Right/left side chat is awkward/uncomfortable and reduces screen space. Put chat back on the bottom and underneath the screen area. 6.21 was the last version that did this. Whether it was a call, chat, or screenshare, big or small window, chat was always on bottom, underneath the screen. Or, at least, include an option allowing chat to be moved to this more user friendly position.

  20. add a telephone number

    I used to be able to add someones phone number to their profile (on my skype) so that when they are not available on Skype I can call their phone. This option seems to have disappeared in new versions of Skype. A pity as it made you money as I used my skype credit a lot more.
