  9. Send/share a meeting link to someone when you're already on a meeting video call

    I've started a skype meet video call and have 3 people on the call and receive a call from someone that I would to add to the meeting who doesn't have a skype account. I should be able to go in the chats or somewhere on the screen and find a link for the current meet conversion to email to someone so they can join.

  12. In Android settings, if Display->font is set to "default," "large," or "large," then in Skype a long text is truncated or cut off.

    If in Android settings (Display - > font) , I set "font size" to "default," "large," or "largest," then the Skype message text is cut off / truncated at the bottom of a text box. The text only appears properly when the font size is set to "small," so if it doesn't work on default font size, it's obviously a bug.

  13. In Android settings, if Display->font is set to "default," "large," or "largest," then in Skype messeging the text is truncated or cut off.

    In Skype Android messages are sometimes cut off / truncated.

    I see that If in Android settings (Display - > font) , I set "font size" to "default," "large," or "largest," then the Skype message text is cut off / truncated at the bottom of a text box. The text only appears properly when the font size is set to "small," so if it doesn't work on default font size, it's obviously a bug.

  14. add volume control, clearer audio, more share screen options

    Like discord, theres volume control for individual people in a chat or a group, so one friend can be put at 100%, someone else at 200% or someone at 50% etc. and discord tends to have clearer sounding audio, skype tends to sound more muffled. as for screen share, discord lets you select which application specifically that you want to share, and if u want to share the audio.

  20. Block Skype from running on start-up

    You have coded something which cannot be blocked from running on start-up.

    There is;

    *No setting under General (contrary to what your documentation says) - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA34869/how-can-i-customize-the-startup-and-close-options-in-skype-on-desktop

    *Nothing is registered in the Start-Up folder

    *It does not display under system settings>Start-up apps in Win10

    I will uninstall this app until and unless I need it since that is the only way to minimise boot impact, and I must say that a MS product not conforming to normal start-up procedures on an OS built by MS is sketchy.

    It's such a shame that your decision to do this distracts from the excellent…
