  7. Allow changes to Skype Name (ID) to something actually useful

    A Skype Name (ID) of live:.cid.69a04ab0d0166282 is ridiculous to share with others for connecting in Skype. Please allow us to change this to something FRIENDLY others can recognize as referring to the account holder.

  9. share ipad screen while skyping on mac

    A nice feature of Zoom is the ability to run the zoom meeting on my mac, and share my iPad screen during the zoom meeting either through a wifi connection or when the iPad is connected to the Mac. I would love to have this feature on Skype.

  10. Chat view mode for sent videos

    It would be a handy feature if sent videos didn't force the entire screen to be taken up when viewing them. It's difficult to listen to and view the background call when videos are played back. In addition to this, it would also be nice to include a mute function if not proper volume and playback controls for those videos, as it gets in the way of calls quite a lot of the time.

  13. Something neccesary

    You should give us an option for knowing our contact's phone number or email. And you should unblock people who are blocked by us after a time. Because they might be something like a danger(Natural dangers/...) that we want to send to someone but they blocked us because of a lot of messages

  17. recurring billing

    Please allow for more recurring billing options. For example:
    when recurring billing is turned on for a product, have three options (at least)
    1. turn on recurring billing to renew yearly
    2. turn on, but renew once. Renew once on the date of expiry and then turn OFF recurring billing
    3. Turn Off recurring billing

  19. Change usernames—transgender inclusive update

    Allow people to change their username. This feature is not great for trans people who change their names. I had to make a whole second account to change my name.
