  3. Show Electron version in about Skype dialog.

    The recent Skype insider thread over at the community forum says something about updating the version of Electron that Skype uses. If it's possible, I think it would be helpful to see what version of Electron the installed version is currently running in the about Skype dialog.

  5. Issue with latest update causing issues with skype freezing

    I am having an issue with Skype for linux. When i open it the window lays under my top bar occasionally when it doesn't then all button interactions are in the right place. Even if it does though, when I am in a call it will either freeze the video when i click on it, or freeze it when I maximize it. If I leave it in the minimal window it will work fine. I have tried both the flatpak version as well as the .deb file found here on the Skype download site.

    Running the following:

    Pop!_OS 20.10

  11. Show vote totals in Poll Results!

    Polls are great! But, when the poll is over, it would really nice to see the result numbers for each choice. Right now, you only know what choice got the most votes. I often want to know how close it is and I have to count.

    What a pain.

  18. please add a feature to disable together mode, may of the skype users are very inexperienced conference users, then all is spoiled

    plesae add a feature to disallow together mode by users in Skype, many Skype users are very inexperienced in Conf Calls and when you want to only one party is streaming video and all the other shall look at it then together mode is spoiling the complete conference. As such together mode in such a setup is something you really do not want. As such the one which is setting up the conf call shall be able to disallow together mode.

  19. Updates cause problems with older users

    My mother lives in Penarth, UK; she is 94. Two years ago, when she visited us in California, I bought her a Samsung tablet, as she was having trouble navigating Skype on her Dell laptop after my father died. I set up everything in the US and when she got back to the UK, se was able to answer calls I made to her and even make calls to me from Skype. A touchscreen was much easier for her and the tablet could be wherever she needed it in the house.

    Pushed updates to Skype are a big problem, however…
