  2. Shortcuts for putting calls on hold and resuming the call.

    I find it very time consuming to return to the call just to hold and resume call whenever I want to. I wish you could employ shortcut for this one. Thank you.

  3. I don't need to be reminded all the time that I don't have a camera.

    My 'Camera' is a microscope. I don't have it on all the time. When I am using Skype, I do not need to be reminded that a camera can not be found, but all the time that I am having a conversation on Skype the notification is there in the lower middle of the screen, encouraging me to troubleshoot the 'problem.' It keeps coming back after I dismiss it.
    For some, there are privacy issues that mean they don't want to have a camera. (Oh look, my partner is walking around behind me with no/scanty clothes, to name just one). …

  4. When in a Skype Call on Mac, how to transfer / continue it from my iPhone or vice versa?

    Hello,

    When in a Skype Call on Mac, how to transfer / continue it from my iPhone or vice versa?

    Can someone please let me know if there's a way to accomplish this or can this be taken as product feedback?

    Mac's & iPhone's have Continuity to continue things across both devices. Can Skype utilize this feature?

    If I add in a secondary phone number of mine, can I invite that number from my Mac and then continue it from my iPhone and then after connected from my iPhone, can I disconnect the call from my Mac, w/o disconnecting the…

  7. deactivate feedback screen after call

    After every call I get a Dialog to share my opinion about the call quality. I already gave my stars a million time and now it's enough. Would like to disable this now.

  10. skype should provide a tapi interface for calling

    applications and websites use tel:nnnnnnnnnn for generating phone calls which brings up the TAPI: dialog. When skype is installed it should insert a TAPI hook to allow TAPI to use skype.

  13. Skype Entreprise: see how many participants / who is already connected to the next meeting

    Sometimes calls get longer than expected but we need to disconnect to join the next conference. However, oftentimes the next conference hasn't started or the key participants are not there. So I should be able to see who's already connected to my next conference in my agenda and eventually chat with them to alert if i'm late

  16. Two cameras

    The ability to use two webcams on one account. This would be really helpful for Skype music lessons as the teacher needs to be able to see the keyboard but also the student’s face.

  17. SKYPE, Lost, or Frozen Video when Screen Sharing.

    When You Share Screens Audio&Video, with your Contact, there is a Unstable Interruption , as My Contact's Screen Freezes, Audio has a Echo & I get a "Poor Connection" or "Switch to Audio Only" message, also, I get what Sounds like a Busy Signal or Can't Connect Signal ... until I STOP! Screen Sharing, at which time, after 45-50 seconds the Signal Clears & Everything Returns to Normal.

    There are Nights, when it Happens, once or twice, others when it Occurs more than a Dozen Times, in one 5hr, evening.

    I have already Confirmed & Verified that my Connection &…

  20. Number Based Meeting ID

    up-to 100 participants are an exciting feature.

    But still missing number-based meeting id. Link is not easy to share with primary level students.
