  4. persist preferences on Skype for Mac

    Every time I load the current version of Skype, the preferences I saved in the last session are gone. I'm running the current version of Skype for Mac (app) on the current version of macOS. Also it would be good if my presence setting (like Invisible) was kept too.

  9. option to not show others when on you are muted

    Please give us an option to not show when we have ourselves on mute. Allow us to disable that feature. My employees do not need to know when I have myself on mute. I un-mute when I want them to hear me, otherwise, when working from home, I mute frequently when family members are chatting nearby. I don't need work to know that I'm muted constantly. Please give the option to disable that notification.

  12. Re-send undelivered texts

    For texts that do not get delivered, is there a feature to re-capture those undelivered texts and re-send them???? (Consider that all messages are time and date stamped.)

  14. Brightness control for my and incomming video

    If a window is behind me currently my option is to move the laptop, otherwise I am a silhouette. The EV shift control would be useful so I could make image of myself brighter. It would be useful to be able to adjust other persons camera (older people do not care how they look like but I would adjust the camera to I can see them). This would control camera device setting, such as exposure, shutter speed, instead of just multiplying incoming pixels.

  15. Move the speakerphone button

    Allow speaker button location to be selectable. I have a Samsung galaxy S8 Plus phone. The current location of the speakerphone activation for the phone is in the upper right corner. When I go to press it with my left fingers, it will shade the light sensor and turn the screen off. It needs to be located on the lower right or lower left so not activate the sensor. This should be selectable.

  17. Multiple column chat

    This is not Split View Mode. Split View Mode is not easy to arrange conversations. Instead, right-side view can contains multiple conversations. Idea like Tweetdeck.

  18. Option to prevent other contacts from recording voice and video calls

    Restriction to not allow other participants to record voice or video calls. There should be an option to allow or not allow that. This is a privacy condition.
