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.

This feature would be sooooo useful!!! I use the same account on multiple devices and I would love to transfer an active call between my devices that are logged in on the same account!!!
I would love to have this feature to seamlessly switch between devices while on a call. Like how Spotify can switch devices easily.
This should be rather easy to implement.
When you go to a device where the conversation currently is not taken place, there should be an option to transfer current ongoing call to this device.
The current device would pick upp the command to transfer to another device and send a command to the other participants to initiate communication and handshake procedures with the new device, and then when all are in sync the new device send the final execute transfer command to all participants, including the previous device.
