  3. Ability to set default for cameras and mics

    We use Skype (regular, not business) to run remote yoga classes during the current lockdown. Most participants are technologically challenged. We need to only have the instructor transmitting video and sound and all others in listen mode only (except having the ability to unmute themselves if they want to say something to the instructor). Currently, when a call begins, and if someone joins late, it is a task to get everyone to shut video and mute mics. While we have announced this, we still run into some students who struggle and this disrupts the class.

    There should be a way…

  4. end call

    There should be an option when ending the call to have it end for everyone and then "author" of the call be able to disable that link -- at least disable others from continuing back in to the call after the originator has ended it.

  5. callerid

    I would like Skype to have a future where the caller ID need not be a number, but a particular name.
    I am trying to call several people who I do not want them to know my number, but I would want them to know who is calling so that they will not block my call.

  6. double feedback!

    Ridiculous! I attempt to provide feedback about something entirely different, and the feedback app itself crashes 3 x in a row!

    Skype - initially when setting this up there is an option (Video) to blur the background. What a great idea, and it works well - during the setup test.

    Then this option DISAPPEARS! Why (rhetorical question)?!?

  7. Ability to hide Skype system tray icon

    It would be nice to have an option to hide System Tray icon for us user to de-clutter our System Tray, all while retaining Skype running in the background to still receive notifications and calls.

  10. Les membres d'un groupe (à part les admins) n'ont pas le droit de supprimer d'autres de l'appel

    comment faire pour qu'un participant ne me supprime pas de l'appel
    Pendant les appels, une personne dans le groupe s'amuse a virer les gens. On ne peut pas savoir qui c'est. J'aimerais savoir comment il est possible d’empêcher ce genre de comportement, soit en empêchant l'option, soit en savant qui est la personne qui fait çà, ou autre.

    merci d'avance.

  13. Ethiopia

    Additional payment options for Ethiopian customers. The payments options listed under Ethiopia aren't really available here. Someone would have to go to the US and other countries to have credit cards since we don't have those here and our debit cards can only pay for local transactions. Maybe a system can be created where we can deposit the money to a Skype agent here and that can be used to purchase Skype paid features without having to use credit cards or other payments methods.

  14. Green Screen

    It would be nice to have a simple way of getting greenscreen on settings to get my own backgrounds (instead of what's behind me right now!)

  15. Activity

    It would be good if users could have an activity indicator that changes color to indicate how much the contact is busy in various chats. As a user one should be able to configure how many messages and new chats lead to an increase in the indicated activity. The purpose of this is to be analogous to me wanting to speak to someone but seeing that a lot of other people have been conversing with the person in question, and thus deciding to wait a little bit to give my colleague some time to breathe or collect their thoughts. After…

  16. screen sharing

    As Allowed in Microsoft Teams, Skype too should allow screen sharing during a group call, so these days Teachers can teach students through SKYPE APP

  17. Skype becomes boring and useless when you don't have someone to chat with. its fun when we're authorize to see those online but not contact

    If someone signup for skype the person must get contact before he/she can chat which is bad & boring. If at least people get to see online people if not global it can be the location so that one can have someone to chat. Believe me, chatting releases stress. Not necessarily to know someone before you can chat!!!!! I SUGGEST that, skypers are given permission to see online people & that will be interesting when one joins skype... What if I join skype and have no contact, that does mean t I can't chat? Then the skype becomes useless and…
