  3. Login

    Win10 - I installed Skype - Does not allow pasting login details - Will NEVER use it again. One of the most insecure difficult thing to log into I have ever used.

    Great work

  4. Times for Profile Status'

    I would love a feature where in specific times, my profile status would be offline, then when it becomes, for example, 3:00 PM, it becomes online automatically. It would help me so much because I have work to do in specific times, so I leave my profile status as do not disturb, and then when I am done, I forget to change it back to online, and then I don't get my friends' messages. Please add this feature.

    Thank you,

  6. Temporary admission

    Give an option for temporary admission in a group, because in many companies when an intern joins, he gets added to the company skype and when the internship gets over admin forgets to remove him from group if he is out of the company. There is a chance of betrayal here if he is still getting skype messages from company. Can give an option to auto throw him out of group by setting a date limit.

  7. end call

    There should be an option when ending the call to have it end for everyone and then "author" of the call be able to disable that link -- at least disable others from continuing back in to the call after the originator has ended it.

  9. Skype becomes boring and useless when you don't have someone to chat with. its fun when we're authorize to see those online but not contact

    If someone signup for skype the person must get contact before he/she can chat which is bad & boring. If at least people get to see online people if not global it can be the location so that one can have someone to chat. Believe me, chatting releases stress. Not necessarily to know someone before you can chat!!!!! I SUGGEST that, skypers are given permission to see online people & that will be interesting when one joins skype... What if I join skype and have no contact, that does mean t I can't chat? Then the skype becomes useless and…

  14. Automatic QR code detectionnin images

    Sometimes friends share images promoting an activity, group, or product. The image contains a we code within. I want to propose the automatic recognition of the we code, such that when a user long presses the image, the option to go the link target of the QR code is possible.

  16. I wish the 60 min with my office 365 would be converted to at least 15 min to Brazil mobile. Landlines is in extinction.

    We don't need to have 365 at home. But we thought the 60 minutes my wife could use to call mobile in Brazil and would help to offset the cost with credits.
    I believe many people has the same thought, and may not renew the 365 subscription.

  20. Covid19 Hack for Hospitals: Using skype in Tablets (Android/ipads) as baby monitors (for remotely monitoring patients)?

    Using Tablets (Android/ipads) as baby monitors (for remotely monitoring patients)?

    I got this idea from a local hospital which requested folks to drop in their VIDEO baby monitors at the hospital, and the nurses would use them to monitor patients from far [1]

    Then, I found this site [2] that shows how to convert an old tablet for use as a video baby monitor.

    The idea is to use skype to do the connection and have a mobile to watch on the other end.

    Wifi/bandwidth should not be much of a problem in hospital settings, but we would need to…
