  3. I am using Skype for business in our ERP implementation to have all teams connected on a group call during a certain event. However the prod

    I am using Skype for business in our ERP implementation to have all teams connected on a group call during a certain event. However the product seems to have a limitation of being able to view only 5 users’ camera at a time versus my requirement of 10 users.

    Comparing Skype with other products such as gotomeeting who can view up to 25 users. I kindly request your consideration in opening up the number to be 10 users.

    While I understand this will have an impact on the call quality and video resolution but it remains an option for those…

  6. Custom Message Bank

    Why is there no option to record a custom recording for our message bank? This just seems like common sense. Doing a google around it seems this has been a problem for many years, not sure why Skype doesnt listen to their customers. I cant use a generic message for my business phone so am now forced to go and find another provider, quite pathetic Skype.

  7. Fix Volume Control on Skype 8 for Mac

    The fact that I can't even change the volume on Skype independently from my system volume level is ridiculous, and, frankly, the sole reason I don't use Skype 8. This seems like a MASSIVE oversight to me, and as long as it remains unfixed, I will either continue to hunt down Skype classic workarounds or stop using Skype altogether (and I'm sure MANY others will agree). Please make Skype for Mac useable.

  8. Images

    I have a simple question. Have'nt you guessed how important it is for users that the picture in Skype opens in its original size? Well, if this is a surprise for you?
    You didn't even give me the opportunity to do it by myself.
    If you dont have skills for this? use at least a standard windows viewer. What are my ideas for skype? Well, make at least standard things, nessesary tools

  9. Permissions\Ranks

    (Like discord) Skype should have a ranking system, so if I set myself to an admin of a group chat, I can't be kicked from it. (Or at least if I created it)

  17. Don't have Skype Running all the time

    I like Skype - it's a great app. I just don't want it running all the time in the background on my computer. I want to use it to make calls etc but when I'm done I want the capability to exit the program completely. There is no option to quit from the taskbar.
    Asa a result I am uninstall Skype on my computer.
