  1. Calling features

    Like Discord people should be able to lower or higher someones volume. You use to be able to end the ringing for different memebers of a group, the feature has been removed in the last few years. When you mute a group you shouldnt still be getting calls, that's the whole point of muting a group or person, to not receive notifications from them. On do not disturb I still get get calls popping up and so do other people I've asked. Given how big Skype is and how many people report the same issues or similar issues you would…

  2. Introduce settings on Android and quit lying about minutes before sign up.

    I am sorry but this android app has zero settings, except for notifications. I can't even adjust anything.

    Also, they lied to me, saying unlimited calls in the USA, since Microsoft doesn't pay for domestic calls or minutes (which is why magic jack, nettalk, Google can have free domestic calling). Unfortunately, they only allow 100. I would have not purchased the Skype if I thought they offered under 1000 minutes a month, which is still barely enough for 3 10 minute calls a day.

  4. Hiding Sharing Tool bar on the top whenever user wants.

    Hello team,

    Thank you for the amazing and user friendly application.

    I want to know if there is an option to hide a sharing toolbar that appears on the top while sharing a screen via Skype.

    I'm currently using Skype to share a desktop screen with my colleagues. And it really becomes difficult to toggle between web browser apps when the screen is being shared due to the toolbar on the top.

    So just wanted to know if there is already an option to hide or is it possible for you to have this feature?

    It'll be so nice if…

  6. 100 minutes is pathetic and a joke for the paid Skype

    I am sick to my stomach that I paid for the year and only get 100 minutes per month.

    It costs Microsoft zero dollars per minute, because just like ooma, et al.

    I gave money to price gouging business executives, not people empathetic with a customer base.

    60 minutes per day is 1800 minutes per month, which is barely enough minutes to call mom, a girlfriend, get customer product support, daily.

    Even keeping my cell calls down to 4 minute blocks in 1996, I usually used 450 minutes, which racked up a $130/month phone bill at 10 cent per minute…

  11. How to fix Google Drive Not Working

    Google Drive is currently one of the best cloud storage options for Android users. Google offers a total of 15GB of free storage in three different apps: Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos.

It allows you to sync, share, and help back up data across devices and platforms.
    What if Google Drive is not working on your Android phone? Sometimes users report that Google Drive cannot upload files or stops working. I know it's hard to…

  12. How to Recover Google Contacts

    You've just downloaded the latest and greatest contact manager on your smartphone, linked it to your G Suite account to sync with your Gmail contacts, and now you're waiting for anyone you've met to fill out your mobile address book. .
    Suddenly all your contacts disappear from Google and your phone.
    This is happening more than you think, and mainly because too many apps make it easy to set up a blank smartphone address book to overwrite your most recent Google contact list, and not the other way around.
    Fortunately, Google Contacts has a built-in version control feature, so you…

    We will give all old students like me information on what Google Photos is all about! Google Photos is a popular application for sharing and storing photos. This Google Cloud offer allows you to free up space on your device by saving an unlimited number of photos.

  15. Google Can't Be Reached

    If you are a Google Chrome user, you may encounter a lot of errors while browsing. While most errors are rare, there is something very common: this site is not accessible. The problem here is also simple, as the error can be caused by many problems.
    Sometimes this is a problem with the site itself. But sometimes there is something wrong with your computer. Due to this character, Google Chrome can correct the error "This site cannot be accessed" in several ways, including its version: dnsprobefinished_nxdomain error. In this article, we'll take a quick look at them.

    skype for windows desktop cannot take a simple photo and send it to a contact from skype, the android verison can do this easily.
    why is skype so inconsistent acrosss platforms,
