  3. url: www.virtualmeetings.com for sale

    www.virtualmeetings.com

    www.eventsolution.com

    www. meetingday.com

    I’m wondering if any of your development team members would be interested in acquiring any or all of these URLs? They all are highly valued, however, I am now retired from the industry after an amazing career in marketing.. I have recently been given a terminal medical diagnosis with not that many years to live and it’s imperative for me to answer the epitaph in Hamilton. “How shall I be remembered?”

    I am not emotionally attached to any of the above url’s, and I’m willing to accept a dignified offer.

    Skype, might you or your development…

  4. Hey,

    Wouldn’t it be nice if you could name your friends with emojis of your keyboard too? Please fix this problem, whenever I try to use emojis on my friends’ names, they just get deleted right after (I mean that the emojis are removed)

  5. Get rid of the white top bar (title bar/ app bar). Use custom theme consistent top bar.

    Follow the design of the Discord app for the App top bar/ Title bar where user clicks on to move the app.

  7. Fix the lagging user interface during skype to skype calls

    Fix lagging user interface during Skype to Skype calls. I can not tell when I'm muted, Skype takes long time to respond especially at beginning of call. The other day it took 7 minutes after starting call for me to start to get Skype response on user interface. It seems worse on groups less than 25 members, but UI seems to be considerably laggy for all group calls.

  8. Skype Layout

    Hello, friends!
    I have a suggestion that most of the users may like. We all know that most of the people hate the new Microsoft design. I think it would be GREAT if you add something in the settings that can change the WHOLE Skype layout. (Ringtones, design, settings, UI, etc.)

    For example I have 3 layouts to choose from:
    Microsoft Design (Default)
    Skype 6 Design (Classic)
    First ever Skype version (Old)

    If I choose Microsoft Design nothing would change as this will be the default one.

    If I choose the Skype 6 Design, the app would change EVERYTHING so…

  9. Update the icon for macOS (Big Sur)

    Please update an icon for Skype for macOS (Big Sur). It looks outdated and it's not visually aligned with a new design language of macOS.

  15. improve the black small window that appears when you have established a connection ...

    When you have successfully established a connection, (whether from Skye to Skype, or to phone subscriber the black window from where your see your call progressing is replaced by a small black window with very few buttons. So, everything becomes difficult like sending a document, sharing the screen, adjusting the audio, and so forth. Can you populate this window with small that would allow the user to get access to mots of the functions he has access to from the normal window.

    What is even more annoying is that this small window has a tendency to u-disappear. Sometimes it gets…

  16. Coorrect for the Skype icon that regularly disappear from the servece tray...

    The Skype green icon regularly disappears from the service tray. The space it occupied is still there, and you can let the orange icon, or the "do not disturb" icon to appear, but not the green icon. This sounds trivial but it is annoying. Can the programmers look at that seriously because it has been a problem since months and months..

  19. Low Vision Icons

    icons on people are hard to see, the recently online icon should be green with a black spot in the middle rather than white. It's hard for low vision users, and users with small screens and high resolution to see.
