  1. Call Ring Tones

    On a previous version you could set your own ring tone. PLEASE bring this back! It makes it far easier to differentiate when you get a skype call as opposed to other types of call. Also the Skype ring tone is annoying!

  2. Truly unlimited 'world subscription' with all mobile and landlines included

    I want to replace my physical landline phone with skype. But I need to be able to call ALL the numbers (mobile, landlines, paid etc) worldwide (not only 8 or 30 countries). Please make this available by creating such a subscription for individuals so we can finally throw out the old landline phones.

  3. Freeze the screen view to colleagues

    Skype for business, when sharing my screen i can only show screen or stop sharing. It would be good to pause or freeze the view while I click around for another page or document, then unfreeze my view to show colleagues.

    This would also be good if I want to check my emails or do something else while presenting something and not interrupting other conversations.

  5. recording

    I use the skype call recording feature and the split screen recording is good, but I need the split to be horizontal split vs vertical split. If you can provide an option to choose horizontal split vs vertical split will be useful. The reason for this request is - In a vertical split, the center portion only is available thereby missing some details especially if it is an instrumental music class. Please consider providing it as an user option when selecting recording feature.

  8. Systemwide screensharing for iOS

    Systemwide screen sharing with iOS. If apple doesn’t allow it, at least have a contract with note taking applications like Notability, so a notability note taking session can be shared as a Skype screen share. it will be great for teachers and students; Especially great for online tutoring.

  12. Swipe left or right on chat to voice call or video call

    It will be a lot easier if we could call someone simply by swiping left or right on their respective chat instead of going into the chat first. It's what some other messaging apps like Whatsapp do. It's a simple fix but a huge improvement for user experience.

  16. Call Planner

    Call Planner
    Integrate a version of The World Clock Meeting Planner that allows users to plan phone / vidio hookup times by selecting cities / regions that form a table that shows actual time in those selected locations. Thus compatable times can be chosen.

  18. You need to restore the ringtone "off" feature.

    I am sick to death of the annoying ringtone in Skype. If this option is not restored, I will be looking for a new service.

  20. Assition of live translation for incoming calls

    I would like to suggest translation feature for incoming calls for clients.
    current feature only support the translation for the calls made by account holder to his selected contact to only receive translation from the overseas 10 selected countries. but client cannot translate his reply to caller.

    and also we cannot make these features workable for calls that we receive. skype should add this feature for incoming calls and also for response to the caller.
