  7. Admin calling powers

    It's really annoying when my friends remove me from the Skype call. And I was wondering if you could make it so then only the admin (me) can remove people from the call because when you're having a good conversation with your friends someone removes you from the call.

  9. Can I stop the call me back message appearing in drafts if someone does not answer the call?

    If I close the pop up with the suggested message it should not appear as a draft message. It is annoying to have to delete this message before I can draft my own personalised message

  10. It is difficult to find out how to update Skype. There should be a way to check within the Help menu option if Skype updates are required!

  12. Multiple webcams

    I would like to use at least two webcams on the remote site. One to see my student and one to see what my student is doing. For my math tutoring, this would be an overhead camera focused on the student’s workbook or problem sheet; for my microcontroller students, it would be aimed at their breadboard. I would be ecstatic if I could have pan-tilt-zoom and in the Best Of All Possible Worlds focus capabilities that I control, and I want to be able to have one or both cameras displayed on my screen, with a very simple way to…

  17. how about WORKING SOUND OR MIC?!!!!!!! Skype/Microsoft ***** IT UP AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH

    Sound and mic that works? What a novel idea. A communications program that actually has a WORKING SOUND AND MIC.

    It quits/ up/fails/glitches ALL THE TIME. You morons at Microsoft might not know this, but when I need Skype for a call, I DON'T HAVE 3 HOURS TO TROUBLE SHOOT YOUR BUGGY **.

    It used to work until you improved it.
