  1. clear cache option on iOS

    Option to clear cache or delete video/photo files without deleting the whole group conversation on iOS to save space. Similar to the one that WhatsApp has it.

  2. Call Center for Skype

    Hi,
    apparently, there is no IVR for Skype software available in order to route a Skype number to a virtual call center. I formerly used to use PrettyMay Call Center for Skype but this software is not running on actual Skype anymore. Something replacing this software would be great. Thank you for considering.

  7. Auto-answer calls in full screen

    Auto-answer is presently a feature, but Skype video is in a smaller window/box. To expand to full screen, person must manually select full screen. Auto-answer should have a sub-feature (switch) to enable full screen mode or standard window option.

  8. Parental administration access

    My 15yr old daughter has Autism and loves to have the independence to use Skype to talk to her school friends and other family members. She is unaware of the social dangers that platforms like Skype can pose and we have recently been aware that she has been using the search facility to try and find friends but has ended up trying to contact random Skype members. I think that it would be good for parents to have some sort of password protected administration access to allow them to create a contact list for their child so that the child…

  12. Feature to replicate real live communication model

    I've an idea to solve the problem of multiple attendees.
    The call should have a different model/swith it's for "hosted", (school, seminary), or "on pear" (fun, collaboration).
    My concept it's based on a study of the model of the real live communication.
    We need to replicate it in web conferencing, otherwise after a while it's always headache.
    Despite the constant improvements, none solved the problem.
    I think everybody think so.
    It's necessary the use of voice recognition and some automation in the call based on it.
    As a project manager I thought to develop by myself or to study some…

  13. Be able to get the due subscription back if there was a payment issue after expiration particularly if you are an old customer

    My subscription expired while I had an issue using the previous card which I had assigned to Skype. By the time I had sorted it out and I could now use a new card I could not go back to it. The offers now available are far too expensive!!!
    The disappointment is greater since I am an old customer and there is no further consideration from Skype. Some kind of flexibility should be available particularly to old customers because difficulties and problems either than our responsibility may arise. This issue is making me look else where for better offers and…

  14. Group call list

    There should be a way out to find out (after a group audio/ video call) who all actually joined the call ( having join and drop time would be even better). This can be seen during the call, but seems no way one can do this after the call. This des exits in Skype for business.

  15. 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.

  18. Complete 2020 list of things that need to be Fixed.

    1000 Suggestions won't do anything you need clear docs and real-time info to collaborate with the community but here is what i think needs addressing.

    Desktop App stuff:

    The built-in recorder is a mess it won’t record your current layout nor separate streams and its resolution/bitrate is too low we need selectable output for this not to be a ‘’backup thing’’ we also need multi audio tracks embedded GMT or UTC time code and a file name output that is standard like ‘’Sunday 2019.12.08 09.53.48 AM GMT’’ etc not ‘’video1’’ and the banner needs to be hidable and a ‘’i…
