  3. Here is a idea for skype and craposoft.

    Here is a new idea for you craposoft, stop updating it to be junk and actually try to fix it for a change, skype use to be the best, now its not even worth using free, call constantly dropping, online status constantly changing on its own, messages not wanting to send, and yes my net works no problems it is perfectly fine and so is the others, we talking on discord and facebook voice no problem at all, but on cype, its constantly droping and acting up, and now your new update screwing up only thing left i use it…

  4. Unlimited Europe Price Change Very Discouraging

    Recently Skype changed their Europe Unlimited Mobile and Landlines plan from £16.80 to nearly £30.

    This is supremely unfriendly to people who have been paying £16.80 for years. I am currently using a number I had purchased off skype for my business and had the subscription so people could call the landline number and have it divert to a mobile phone. We would also return missed calls using skype. It was a great way to keep track of calls.

    I am now stuck in a situation where if I would like to keep my business number I have been using…

  5. Phone support

    I just had the most frustrating time dealing with Mark Francis in your support team. I had to go over things several times with him when a phone support conversation would have been so much simpler. I had to download the Skype app twice to finally get my Skype to work. He kept suggesting things that were not working and finally on my own with no help from him I decided to redownload the Skype app and finally got it to work. This is the problem with support texting - trying to get someone to understand your issue. Ridiculous that…

  10. Please add the host option, as people keep messing up with the group calls while online classes in lockdown

    You should add the host option for the teachers teaching online, otherwise students will take benefit of it

  13. Ability to change "Skype Name" without deleting e-mail account.

    Ability to change Skype Name if it so happens to be now attached to my professional e-mail. Prior to Microsoft buying Skype, I had a unprofessional skype name which at the time during my youth of late teens to early 20s was appropriate but currently is not professional and it's attached to my professional e-mail.

  16. Pin Button

    It would be much much greater if Skype has feature/button to pin some important messages. Thank you, lovely team!

  17. User Control Activities

    Mobile Version

    1- Skype doesn't allow to turn off the ringing on incoming call (if the phone is not on silent mode). Skype should allow user to turn-off ringing on incoming call by pressing power key.

    2- User last seen time stamp should be in user control.

    3- Idle status feature should be a part of user control. Skype should allow user to manage their idle status based on last activity, and also there should be an option to turn-on idle status: after HH:MM:SS or turn-off idle status: keep the status as it is.

  20. View participants while screen sharing

    Allow us to maintain viewing participants on the call whilst sharing our screens, it would be useful for those teaching in education sector, it would be useful for business calls etc. Short of using two monitors, it is not currently possible (to my knowledge) to do this.
