  1. Change UI to move upload photo button out of the way.

    UI is poorly laid out. I keep accidentally hitting upload photo as that is the same location as send on mobile version. Runs risk of accidentally sending a photo of yourself to a work group for example. Upload live photo is not something that is required often so could be on other side of the screen. Hitting send is used very often.

  2. images

    In the past I could copy images in skype app..... Now I can´t even do that. I have an image in clipboard and it won´t allow me to paste. Nor can I drag and drop. Seems the program has been downgraded.

  3. Better UX flow or making landline calls

    My main use-case for Skype is making calls to landline and mobile phone-numbers.
    In the native mobile app, this is pretty annoying and repetitive:
    * Open Skype app
    * Tap pen
    * Tap new call
    * Tap dial pad icon

    That's three clicks once inside the app just to start typing the number.
    Allowing going straight to dialing from the home screen would make this a lot less frustrating.

  4. full screen

    When you end a call, it 'always' goes from Full Screen to a Window ... absolutely stupid, this 'automatic' shrinking is just annoying. I'm a full window user, and normally when one call has ended, the next starts. Please just add an option in preferences to 'not-shrink'.

    Many thanks

  5. I suggest to add creative feature on Emojis.

    I suggest to add creative feature on Emojis. Because of lockdown many people are not able to go to salons for their grooming. I think it will be great fun things in these days.

  7. Skype for web as an installable PWA

    Hello,

    As a chromebook user it would be great if I could install Skype (web.skype.com) - as a PWA! I've currently got Skype bookmarked as a frameless window... But this is missing the native app feel (ie: cached static site resources, notifications, etc).

  10. Remove from call to be not anonymous

    Group video call feature "remove from call" I would suggest showing who is removing from the call. Now it is anonymous and creates tension among participants. Our 7-year-old son received distance schooling during the lockdown in a group of 22 classmates on Skype whereby few kids were playing with " remove from call" feature cased a lot of upset among parents. It was decided that our boy is to blame but I know for a fact my boy is innocent as I always sat next to him during the lessons but I have no proof whatsoever. Very unfair feature.

  13. Make the settings window a pop-up, not a window

    When using Windows in Tablet Mode, having Skype settings being its own Windows is really annoying. Please make it a pop-up Windows like the old Skype for Windows 10.

  20. Full Participant Gallery View

    I would love to see a gallery view similar to other video conferencing platforms. A view where all of the participants in the call can be seen simultaneously. Though I understand that there may be legitimate reasons to keep the image larger and limit the number who are visible, the current version with 4 participants and the ribbon up top is useless for a large group discussion. Thank you!
