  2. Separate skype users from phones in contacts

    Skype no longer separates my skype user list from my phone contacts, as it used to be before Microsoft redesigned it. This makes it almost impossible to use. Is there any way to persuade skype to separate these two classes of contacts. I accept that you could add skype contacts to Favorites, but that is also hopeless.

  14. Video Recording Settings

    HELLO there guys. Thanks for the effort. To make this super short. Please, I need to record meeting videos while only me showing. We wish to disable and enable how many people show up in the recording. Because sometimes I share my screen to show something and the txt would be so small its unreadable.

    Thanks

  17. Support floating window feature on phones that can multi-task. You can use other apps and Skype at the same time for increased productivity

    When you're on Skype, you can do other task like browse the internet, open calculator, so on, all while Skype is actively floating as a tiny window. Or the other way around. You can receive messages and calls at the same time while doing other tasks on your phone. That way, you won't miss anything on Skype

  18. Abblity to hide/not show ndi/recording banners its just painful...

    Among many things, the ability to have full-screen display feeds not this stupid float etc and hide banners is critical for juggling multiple people and making a comms monitor less cluttered and more practical.

    This is from a boradcast perspective and a mobile user one with the banner its impossible to get a full clean 16 by 9 feed to a phone.

  19. Allow Camera image to be a mirror when teaching

    It would be helpful to allow the camera to show a mirror image while I am tutoring so that when I am using the camera built into my laptop, my writing doesn't show up backwards.

  20. Disable zoom on login mask

    On macOS Catalina, if zoomed in too much the login mask disappears. I therefore see no reason for that feature.
