  1. PLEASE let us share the screen much the same way we used to!

    PLEASE let us share the screen much in the same way we used to... Why can´t you just make it the way it was? Now, I have to choose whether to share either a Word document or my browser... and if I write on my Word document, no one can see what I´m writing (I have to write everything I want in advance, much like a presentation)..
    Skype´s screen sharing capabilities were one of the main reasons I didn´t change to Zoom but now it really doesn´t make a difference because they are both useless.

  2. Add a feature to rearrange the order of emoji in Customize reactions option

    With the latest update of Skype, it is now possible to customize the emoji reaction, which is a cool feature. It would be better if we can rearrange the order of emoji reaction by simple drag and drop.

    As a workaround, currently, we can remove all the reactions and add the desired emoji one by one.

  4. Sort Skype Ideas

    Sort Skype ideas by current votes (highest to lowest) as similar problems with less votes are getting votes, while those with the higher number of votes are missing out. This brings the average number of votes for similar issues/ideas down, while people may see the higher ranked idea and vote for that, bringing the idea to the fore.
    Or, at least give a sort option so people can decide their view.

  5. Let nonbinary people use Skype

    Allow more than just male and female as gender options. We nonbinary people f*cking exist. Accommodate us. It's 2020 how do you still only have male and female as gender options?

  10. Disable Video calling feature

    My idea is to disable the video feature in b/w the persons who are not connected with each other.
    This will help to stop the spreading of abusive and sexsually content.

    Thanks

  12. Allow Import of chat into skype app for android. Save skype chat of longer duration say for a year or two.

    Allow import of skype desktop chat into the skype app. Every update brings problem for the user. Also save chats for year or two in your server in encrypted form for user or allow user to take back up.

  13. Allow Volume Setting for Dialing/Connecting Mode

    Hello Skype,

    The old Skype ring tone is annoying and I would like the volume of it to be at a minimum while waiting for receiver to answer. It would be great to be able to set this in the Skype App settings.

    Better yet it would be great to customize the ring tone to something more desirable, just like mobile phones, where there are a number of premade ring tones for selection.

    With kind regards,
    Skype User

  16. While using the translator during a video call Skype should have the option of turning off the onscreen translation text as the voice transl

    While using the translator during a video call Skype should have the option of turning off the onscreen translation text as the voice translation during a call is enough.Moreover getting the translation texted during call becomes frustating as one is not able to see the face of the other person due to translated text in front.

  18. Internet Service

    Microsoft should start its own high quality, high speed Internet Service in India - so that Indians can use Skype. We want to use Skype, but due to poor internet service in India, we aren't able to use it.

  20. Enhance video image

    Can you enhance the image of the caller much like Zoom? Soften the freckles and wrinkles little?
