  2. Being able to print the copy of the Skype conversation for your records

    Would love to print the copy of my Skype conversations for the records, Skype should really have this feature because these calls count as phone calls and people need to have proof they spoke with each other via Skype

  3. Delete obsolete conversations in Skype.

    I still do not know why it is not possible to have the right to manage our conversations and particuarly to delete obsolete conversations in Skype. This software is too rigid.

  5. international caller ID

    Dear Engineers
    I am a UK resident living and breathing in the UK. I am not an international customer. So why does the number I set in the Caller ID come us as “International” and completely ignore what I asked it to do.
    Your chat blamed all the other phone services but that’s a rubbish answer as why would Skype let its paying customers be seen as a Cold Caller or a Spammer? This is exactly what’s happening to those who now refuse my calls.
    I use a PC Skype App the latest one and my caller ID is set…

  7. EDIT YOUR SKYPE NAME

    You should be able to edit your skype name. Instead you’re blocked by the the word ‘live’ followed by a jumble of letters and numbers. At the most basic you should be able to view what your skype name is because that information is not available for viewing even as the account holder. It lets you email/text/etc a link which does allow you to share it with other people, but you should be able to be reminded or change your skype name so you don’t have to go through that whole process. If you can edit your name, email, picture,…

  8. Create an option to independently adjust ringer and call volume. Ringer volume is a LOT louder than call volume - causing issues.

    Create an option to independently adjust ringer and call volume. The ringer / ring tone volume when a call is connecting is a LOT louder than the call connection volume during conversations. This creates frustration as users have to manually adjust the volume due to the jarring volumes.

  10. Very unhappy

    Hi, unfortunately I am very unhappy with the support of Skype. I just want to cancel my Skype account and keep the e-mail to use for office and this is not possible to Microsoft support

    I have another account of Skype and there's no reason to keep to Skype accounts.

    Was a very bad support, take so much time to say it's not possible.

    Waiting forward

  11. What happened to being able to capture a picture of those you're Skyping with? I want that back!

    It used to be that we could capture a picture of who we're skyping with. What happened to that? I would like that back.

  13. As a meeting organizer, I would like to all or part of the participants

    It happens that some of the participants forget to put their mike on mute and it disturbs the meeting. As a meeting organizer, I would like to see where the noise comes from and be able to mute it. Also during a presentation I would like to mute and unmute all or some of the participants, in order to ensure a clear sound for all listeners and avoid interruptions or allow the asking of questions.

  14. As a meeting organizer I would like to be able to kick out from the people that I do not recognize

    It happened that numbers I did not recognized called in the meeting and they did not respond when asking them who they are. From a security point of view I would like to be able to kick out people or numbers I do not recognize, so that I ensure the confidentiality of the information provided in the meeting.

  18. Determine your own Ringtone and adjust the Volume settings manually

    There are two things that Skype really needs to change to the new Skype


    1. That youre customers who use skype world wide

    get an option where they themselves can adjust the incoming ringtone sound by means of a volume control how loud or soft they want it ...


    1. that your customers worldwide can choose their own ringtone and choose to apply

    With all due respect this is starting to become a very irritating problem worldwide

    I myself, like many others around the world, now start using discord

    The reason why people around the world ask this is Because sometimes with…

  20. New TranslatorI am having problems with the new translator. When initially announced, it was suggested by Community that enabling it immedia

    I am having problems with the new translator. When initially announced, it was suggested by Community that enabling it immediately would ensure that translations would continue automatically. They did not.
    Eventually after a break the new translator began to operate but it is unreliable and often simply stops in mid conversation and we can find no way of re-establishing it, although occasionally it will work at a later conversation although intermittently and sometime for only one half of the conversation. In short it is not fit for purpose.
    I have contacted Community in the hope of finding a solution and…
