  2. allow me to turn off spell check

    Let me turn off spell check. It's an option on every app in the universe except Skype, and it's a person's own choice whether they want to look at red lines all day - whether they can spell or not. It's simply not acceptable to force things onto people.

  4. Default setting of basic system in Skype

    In a group call by a faculty, students join the call.
    By default, the speaker is off, and the Mic is on.

    This is exactly reverse of what is required.

    [Whenever the students join late, their surrounding noise will keep disturbing the entire lecture] .

    What is required?

    The speaker should be on by default, so every body can listen to the faculty, when they join, without specially making it on

    Every body's Mic should be off so that the noise from the surroundings of every student will not disturb the lecture.

    [After this modification, when the faculty opens the…

  8. virtual hall

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    As you know, Corona did a lot of damage to various industries, including the music industry.

    The closure of concerts, theater performances caused many good musicians and actors to have difficult days.

    As a software engineer, I always believe that there is always a way to continue in any situation.

    An interesting idea based on Team and Skype software came to my mind that if you succeed in implementing it, it can bring prosperity to the market of concerts and theater performances during this period.

    Virtual performance hall, a hall where spectators can remotely interact with…

  9. Hate the update. Skype keeps getting worse and worse. Now its Logging me out and I have to sign back in every time.

    Skype 7 was great... Why do ya'll insist on making it crappier and crappier? Are you trying to make sure the few people who you havent run off yet will go soon? If so you're getting there.

  10. Message Layout

    The ability to have all messages be on the left side of the chat window, rather than other people's on the left and yours on the right. It can be really difficult for some people to be able to read back on messages with this kind of format.

  14. Please allow 4 people on a Skype call to use the Together Mode.

    Many of us are playing games together online. I play Mahjong with two different groups 4 times a week. A week ago, somehow Skype allowed us to use the Together Mode when there were only 4 of us. It was GREAT to use the Together Mode in Skype while playing Mahjong online! But it seems like that was a fluke. Do you have a work around that would allow 4 of us to use the Together mode on Skype? Four is the max for players playing a game of Mahjong.

  18. Enable one handed mode

    Add option to move top menus to bottom and drag down moves entire screen down within easy reach. Check out OH Web browser. Just got it and wish every app had these options.
