  2. Play a video with its original sounds during share screen

    I would like my phone, which is android 6.0.1 for now, to be able to perform a share screen where I can play a video with its original sounds. Currently, it does not play it with its sound. Presenting a video is part of my teaching methods to my students. One more thing I wish is allowing me to mute or unmute myself during video screen sharing, like Zoom on a computer. I use Skype weekly.

    I suggest that paid services have access to a person for help. The level of service went from very bad to non-existent. I just want a test SMS sent to me.

  7. Allow Transgender users to change their Skype ID or disentangle skype from their Microsoft account

    I am transgender and my Skype ID is currently set to my deadname. This is deeply distressing, and I have been told by support that the only available remedy is to delete my Microsoft account, which will lose all of my purchasing history and who knows what else (windows licenses???). Please allow transgender individuals to ability to change their Skype id, or regenerate it, or at least disentangle their skype accounts from their Microsoft account.

  8. How to fix AOL Mail not working on iPhone problem?

    Before starting any of these fixes, you should first check if the problem lies with the main server of the program or it is internal to your device. If the problem is with the server, you'll have to wait until the organization resolves it. On the other hand, if the problem lies in your device, then you can use the hackers listed below to fix AOL emails not working on your iPhone. However, try putting your iPhone in-flight/flight mode first, then turning it off again, it will restart your connection to see if it was an internet problem.

  9. Change Skype Name

    I want to be able to change my Skype Name to something more "memorable" than a bunch of letters and numbers, like it was possible before. I think not allowing to do that is not a smart strategy from Microsoft, given the huge amount of available services nowadays. People is choosing the easiest and quickest way to communicate, and personally, I'm not gonna use this live:.cid.61ed1c3e0a515403 "nickname" to give it to anyone, so I'll use Google Meets, Zoom or whatever instead.

  12. Group already exist with same users suggestion message should display while creating other group with same persons

    While user creating any group with couple on user and we already have existing group with same persons then Skype should give a message like
    We already have a below group for same persons. Please select group if you want to continue the same.

    Coz it's creating long history for each different conversation.

  14. Leave Message

    Users should have an option to set up auto-reply message, when they are away from Skype. It should work like auto-reply mail. User should be able to enable it by writing his/her message whenever it is required.

  15. Real time texting

    A feature that allows for real time texting, i.e. the receiver sees what the sender is typing in real time without pressing the send button, is a major improvement in real time communication. This is a service that has become compulsory for all new phones, and it would be a great feature on Skype. It would be a highly attractive feature for the hard of hearing/speech impaired community, which would be more inclined to use Skype. Many thanks for your consideration.
