  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. Enable group video chats on Echo Show (Alexa)

    What I want to get working-

    2 or more smartphones with the latest skype app to connect to 1 Echo show with it's own account

    Currently only peer-to-peer is supported (Only one person can skype to an Echo show at a time).

  17. Changeable ringtones

    I feel that people should be able to change their ringtones for certain contacts. For an example, if I have a friend on Skype, I could set them a custom ringtone so I know if its them calling.

    Also, the ability to set default ringtones for all contacts.

  18. 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.

  19. Put back 3 minute Video message rather then 20 seconds

    Many elderly people find it difficult to type (arthritis etc) and used the 3 minute video message instead of typing. Changing it to 20 second messages is just too short to leave any kind of message - and having to leave 15 messages to = 3 minutes isn't the answer either. Why would you change it from 3 minutes to 20 seconds? Please consider the elderly or people struggling with arthritis in their fingers and reinstate the 3 minute video message. It can't be that difficult to do since you had it that way before.

  20. Disable Integrated Calling

    In the older versions of skype for mobile there was an option to disable Integrated Calling. I need skype on my phone for use while I'm away from my computer, but I really don't want incoming skype calls to show up as a phone call when my phone is locked. Please bring the option to disable it back
