  2. control background noise

    so that we still can hear each other's voice but the background noise's gone so we can hear each other without the background noise as zoom did

  4. Delete skype & integrate MS Teams & zoom into Outlook accounts

    How bout shutting down Skype entirely or changing & integrating it to a more meaningful useful tool such as MS Teams as well as Zoom into the "Meet Now" option into existing consumers email accounts (Hotmail & Outlook) & give users a lot more choice with how they want to chat to their loved ones? Thanks

  5. Unsubscribe from Skype

    There should be an easier way to unsubscribe from Skype. (I accidentally joined an overseas Skype. I know no-one there and I do not use it. although I unsubscribed I am still paying for nothing.)

  7. possibility to exclude a guest participant

    because some people we have excluded from joining our groups, they use the ability to join as a guest. it would be useful to be able to choose whether to accept them.

  9. Share the screen and the sound of the computer in the same time

    Hi !

    During my class with my student, I would like share the sound in the same time I share my screen. I can do that with Zoom but not with Skype. What a pity !

  10. add sound monitor for calls

    Add an option for people who want to be able to hear their own voice, like a "monitor", and allow them to choose the level. This would work really well with the recording feature.

  11. Add AOL to the list for contacts

    Not everyone uses, or wants to use, Outlook as their default Microsoft email platform. Allow AOL to be added as a default email service provider! It's old school, but lots of people are old school. Old school got us to where we are today.

  12. recording

    Hi,

    I'd like to retrieve my recording. How can I do that.
    I had a recording on 23 October.
    I do need it please.

    The recommendation is for longer time frames, or to have these retrievable from history file.

  14. Only allow incoming calls from contacts you've already been messaging

    To avoid unwanted calls once someone has messaged you and you’ve accepted the chat then they can call, as a setting

  17. You need more security and support by a person for someone whose account has been hacked.

    Have a service where you can speak to person to have it rectified quickly. Not everyone can fix things quickly on a computer.

  19. Please make it possible to add languages to spell check or just DISABLE it

    This is a crazy problem, I can't believe no one has solved.. How many people in the world are bilingual? How common is the spanish language? So why is it then that me being a bilingual American I have to put up with the Spell Check constantly marking common spanish words as misspelled just because they aren't English.. This is asinine please fix this not just for Windows 10 users but for Windows 7. This should be in the Skype settings, not in some crazy obscure area of the control panel..

  20. rating call feature

    I need you to please stop asking me to rate the quality of the call.. In the days of fiber optic lines. 30 MB upload stream, this is just not necessary and EXTREMELY annoying time stealer. Please stop.. a lot of people are complaining about this, and if you insist on keeping it there, at least make it a feature that superusers can turn off.
