  1. A feature of locking the mute button, so that if I don't want to, no one else can mute my microphone.

    There is already a feature, that any participant in a group call can mute any other participant's microphone. Although I can realise it's usefulness, there should also be a way of opting for locking that feature on one's side, as per one's wish, if he doesn't want to be muted.

  2. Only organizer or group calls has the control

    I've been teaching to kids using this tool and they discovered they can disconnect their classmates from the call. It would be PERFECT if only I could control that.

  7. How about a feature that allows us to change the background like Zoom can :-)

    How about a feature that allows us to change the background like Zoom can. Presently there is no feature to do this on the latest version of Skype which is a real bummer.

  8. Resolution options to improve quality of sound

    Choice of resolution just like on YouTube
    Lower resolution potentially improving stability and sound quality
    Higher security version for confidential communication at work, civil service, criminal justice etc.

  9. Full screen recording

    Please allow an option to download a file with a split or full screen of the person you are speaking with. If you could have both files to download that would be even better!

  19. Add confirmation to "Remove from call" contextual menu item

    Add a confirmation for "Remove from call" in the contextual menu, because it's listed right next to "Crop and Fit Video," which we use all the time ... but one slip of the finger on the mouse, and you remove someone from the call. No confirmation, just poof, gone.

    If you're going to keep these side-by-side, please ask us to confirm if we really meant to remove someone from the call
