  2. Child's voice can not be heard

    Today I installed Skype on the new Xiaomi mi Note 10, and when talking with several people, I found out that the interlocutor hears the voices of adults (mine and husband's), but the child who has a higher voice can not be heard, only fragments of phrases are heard (about 30% of what was said). When I tried to make my voice higher, I also was not heard. When calling the Echo service, the child’s voice is recorded and heard well. Reinstalling Skype did not help. Skype Light and Skype Preview have the same problem. What should we do?

  6. Disable screen sharing

    There shoud be a possibility to disable incoming screen sharing for parental control e.g. to prevent a child from viewing inappropriate content from the opposite computer during a call.

  8. Создание опроса в Скайпе. Кол-во символов.

    Здравствуйте, уважаемые!

    Создание опросов в скайпе - одна из функций, выгодно выделяющая Вас на фоне конкурентов. Конечно, такой функционал есть и у других мессенджеров, но на данный момент реализовано это лучше всего у скайпа, имхо.

    Но вот ограничение символов в опросе - очень суровое. Сколько их там? Кажется 40... Этого не хватает практически не для чего. Написать день недели, название ресторана и время, не говоря уже про адрес - не хватит. Описать какую-то задачу или проблему - тоже нет. А что мешает?) Я один едва-ли смогу "изменить мир" и заставить вас доработать функционал, но в качестве отзыва оставлю.

    И ещё!…

  11. Выбор страны СССР в настройках профиля.

    И не надо голословно заявлять что СССР распался или развалился. Конституция СССР не содержала функций развала страны. И сейчас на данный момент все жители России являются гражданами СССР это факт и все международные договоры с СССР действуют. И органы управления СССР восстановлены с 2010 года под руководством ВрИО Президента СССР С.В. Тараскиным. Так требую внести в список стран СССР. Это наша страна, наша Родина, Наше государство. СССР возрождён из пепла и спрос будет с каждого.

  12. Skype pop protocols for violating specific terms

    You know in order to improve Skype protocols there should be a pop up message where an individual is violating a term of Microsoft policies. so they can consider it as a warning.

    Rather then having their accounts blocked due to some reason. (my reason wasn't specified thoroughly it simple said "unusual activity)

  13. Possibility to change the language of the answering machine.

    The answering machine automatically responds in English ... Make it possible to put it in French if you don't have to dial our own answering machine.

  14. Better notification for unread messages

    Could we have a slightly more obvious indicator in the taskbar tray as to unread messages. The current one (a red dot that seems barely larger than one pixel) does not really grab the eye. Perhaps the current icon could get a complete colour change from green to red.

  17. UNREADIBLE supportt pages

    Please change the color schemes on everytrhing that has to do with Skype. Contrast is essential to allow also visually impaired people to use your stuff. There is nothing wrong with honest fat black text on a white background.
    Light gray on white causes a lot of strain and anger and why?
    It's not modern, not nice, not needed, brings nothing extra, ....
    Use a good readible font like Tahoma in bold black and you will make a lot of people very happy.
    That would finally be a change that is worthwhile.

  18. Make a compatibility Patch for Sennheiser HANDMIC DIGITAL to use it on IPhone / IPad

    My Sennheiser HANDMIC DIGITAL won´t work with Skype. I use Skype for Interviews and it would be really handy to use that micro for it.

    I already did a request on the Microsoft Community and I also wrote my issue to Sennheiser.

    This Idea Post lays back on this Tread:

  20. Startup Window location

    Skpe 8.55.0.141 no longer returns to where I placed it on startup, instead the window is in the middle of the screen and I have to move it to where I want it, where it was when I quit.
