  1. Skype on Invoke Speaker

    Fix Skype Cortana-Invoke speaker link

    Cortana on my Invoke speaker no longer connects. It is a software issue not the speaker. Can you please make the speaker able to make Skype calls?

  2. Add filter to block voice from people in the same room, to avoid having to hear them twice (once live and a 2ndtime, microseconds later)

    When in call with multiple people, including some in the same room, it is very disturbing to hear the local ones twice: once as they speak and a 2nd time microseconds later ad their voice comes in the headphones. I wish there was a way to filter them out.

  4. Option to stop auto send voice recording to opposite side.

    Currently when we stop recording then it directly posted to group or to the person on call. We must have option to "Do not send this to opposite side". Although there is no issue in notifying the user that some one is recording call.

  11. Hidding the buttons during a videocall

    Sometimes when you are giving a lecture, the buttons of the videocall on the screen at the bottom, are over the lecture and doesn't let my students read the lessons.

    it should be helpful to have an option where you could hide the buttons of the chat during a videocall

  12. Share screen sound for phones

    Share sounds on screen for phones, they have screen share. I believe sharing screen sounds would help for people on phone and trying to share a song or video.

    Make a keyboard shortcut that brings people to the video message screen. Something like Ctrl + Shift + V. That isn't being used for anything.

  17. amazon

    I just wanted to congratulate the Skype Dev Team on the successful integration of a live subtitle module to their video calls! I have used this feature with one of my grandparents who has a Surface Pro as I do.

    I have a feature request to integrate the natural language processing modules for live subtitles to the Amazon Alexa and Fire Tablet product lines.
