  1. Added features for Suppress Persistent Background Noise

    We kindly ask you to add the function to turn off the noise suppressor, We really need a musical thing, period of epidemic status want to transfer remote music education just through Skype. Because of this, the muffler has a big problem, it will lose fatal quality and will be muted. Look, the zoom manufacturer has the function of turning off. We are waiting for an update.

  5. User friendly with great audio, please!

    Make it possible to move the camera window to where the camera on the iPad is. That way when you’re looking at the other person you’re at least looking pretty much into the camera. Also, it should be possible to have the iPad in the upright position but juice the horizontal view. Third must idea, make it easy to use an USB mic with Skype. As it is now you have to make do with the microphone internal microphone. If there is no way of choosing the source in iOS as far as I can tell. Those three things would

  9. PLATAFORMA DE ESTUDO

    ideia de uma plataforma de video aula, baseado no sistema Moodle (https://moodle.org/?lang=pt_br ) onde facilite o aprendizado de alunos durante o periodo da pandemia. O app deveria se chamar SKYPE EDUCATION onde o professor ficaria no canto da pagina em uma camera, e no centro ficaria uma lousa branca onde ele poderia escrever ou colocar arquivos . abaixo da camera do professor ficaria um chat com os alunos que poderiam tambem enviar ao professor feedback ou devolutivas da materia. Teria acesso a testes e enquetes durante a aula

  13. Submit idea

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    It is my pleasure to say that I am proudly using "skype.com/en/free-conference-call" to take online lecture/group discussion for my students during the pandemic infection by Novel Corona Virus. It was excellent experience with Skype, however, I am facing one problem.

    Many times during the online lecture/group discussion, one notorious student removed me during the conversation/online lecture.

    Therefore, I request you to kindly give an option for meeting organizer to add or remove any participant during the meeting.

    Regards

  18. Allow Remote Access to another contact's computer

    It would be more easy and reliable to access and remote control my friend's/student's computer if he influences a problem or stuck in something. Really important when someone installs a programme or in a live-session learning platform.

  19. Включение микрофона по нажатию заданной клавиши

    Очень некомфортно без настройки включения микрофона заданной клавишей. В настоящее время такая настройка отсутствует и все звуки передаются в сеть автоматически.
    Спасибо.
