  1. Make account recovery a "human in the loop" action.

    The account recovery app assumes records are available on use years in the past. *** u me precludes recovery otherwise. Either put a person in the loop, or allow failed recovery attempts to be resolved by a person in the loop.

    All automatic fails to meet (this) customer needs.

  5. Allow iPad or iPhone IOS skype to display a group member FULL SCREEN.

    When conducting a GROUP call, there is an instructor and a group of students. All the students need to see the instructor, however he is considered as just another group member. Please consider allowing iPad users to select the instructor and make it FULL SCREEN.

  6. Allow iPad / iPhone IOS to mute the SPEAKER (turn off the sound) for confidence monitoring a skype broadcast.

    Please Allow iPad / iPhone IOS to mute the SPEAKER (turn off the sound) for confidence monitoring a skype broadcast. Currently the volume can be lowered but not muted entirely. This causes feedback with the microphone when in the same room as the sender. Confidence monitoring is important when conducting a remote class with a group, to ensure the correct screen is shared and to see what the students see,

  7. auto-capitalization

    Strongly suggest that Skype can include the auto-capitalization feature. I have to press Shift every time I started a new sentence. This is annoying. Every first word of the sentence should be auto capitalized.

  10. Ability to change size of emojis

    Emojis are too small and hard to see if you put more than one in a line. I want the ability to make them bigger or alter their size. The option similar to this already been implemented on fb messenger would like to see a better version or option in skype

  15. auto answer call but add to current chat!

    I was running a meeting and thought I would try the auto answer option. Unfortunately, this option does not auto add users calling in to the current chat session. Instead, u end up with multiple sessions per caller

    We really need an option to auto answer but add the caller to the open chat.
    And only auto answer when on active and a chat session has been created (at least two people i a chat)

  17. submit my idea

    If both the person use the emojie in live video call, if there is something unique happen then it will look cool and bit entertaining, Like the hand shake one if both of us click the hand shake emo under 5 sec then actually hand shake happens in the video. and same goes to other emos too.
