  1. Switch off balance indication

    I am not using Skype to phone calls so I have no money on the Skype Out balance. I'd prefer to hide zero balance indication next to my name on the top of chat/contacts tab.

  5. Skype for Teaching -- whiteboard, etc...

    Give an additional module to the basic Skype , and call it 'skype for teaching' with whiteboard function and other functions that may be useful for people using Skype for teaching , but NOT using the business version as that is not specific enough in scope / purpose to be used for Teaching / Tuition over skype.

  6. "Never mind" emoji

    We need newer Emojis. Shrug, never mind, anyways, and more enthusiastic hand gestures/ happy faces, etc. should be added... I cannot express myself properly right now. Also, we should be able to take pictures from Skype For Business and not have to download them to your device.

  8. Use tags to organize contacts

    Presently all my contacts are jumbled together which is annoying -- especially for business contacts. I don't want just a favorites list. It would be nice to use tags or folders so I can put some as business contacts, or project contacts, or family and friends contacts. I'm using Skype to communicate with vendors but they all have unusual names so I have to search and search to figure out who they are. I want add tags and sort by those tags

  11. dial pad

    Skype version 8.55.0.131
    Application version 14.55.131.0
    Windows 10

    Now the small video / audio windows is sticky to on-screen. Perfect, just make another small window but with the dial paid and give the user the option to have both windows sticky or only video/audio or only dial paid always on-top.

    We use skype daily but never use the video, we need only the small skicky dial pad always on-top please.
