    1. Support for Apple AirPods

      Skype does not support AirPods on Windows or Mac effectively. Users are reportedly either unable to speak to the other caller but can hear them, or unable hear the other callers but speak to them.

        • Office 365 Group Voice mailbox

          When creating a Call Queue or Auto Attendant setup, set an option/drop down to allow the voice mails to route to an Office 365 Group, so that members of the group will be able to access the voice mails. Instead of dedicating a user (therefore spending more license) for all of the voice mails would go to.

          • iOS Push notification should not be readable by Microsoft neither by Apple

            Push notifications are encrypted at the transport layer BUT when they reach Microsoft Notification Service in the Cloud they are opened and visible in clear before being sent to APNS on a TLS connection. The same occurs at Apple beofre the push notification is transmitted securely (TLS) to the Apple device. We consider this as a risk of data leakage at Microsoft and at Apple and ask Microsoft to extend their Push Notification method with the possibility to anonymize all or part of the content. The most critical content is the body of the IM as it is sent for…

              • Attendance list for Skype Meetings/Trainings

                The ability to download a list of participants that attended a Skype meeting or training (Including external participants) would be VERY MUCH appreciated. Using Skype for business for training is difficult without this option available (besides Ctrl+N, which only includes the internal participants and lists external participants as 'Guest'')

                • View more than five video meeting participants simultaneously

                  Currently the max number of participants shown in the gallery in a Skype video meeting is five. Increase this number so that a larger group can see video of all participants. We regularly have meetings with 10-20 participants in Skype video. Would be great to see everyone simultaneously.

                          My coworkers keep stating features on windows that I cannot find in the Mac. You should be able to change all the same settings as window and see all the same functions. It is time to make them the same.

                          • Skype for business Group IM for Offline members pops out a seperate Chat window

                            The recent updates with Office 2016 Skype for business is showing a small annoying bug on group IM.

                            Office 2016 Version: 16.0.10730.20264

                            When we addressed a message to Group, an invitation is sending for offline group members by popping out in a separate chat windows to show that they are Offline.

                            https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_sfb-mso_win10-mso_o365b/skype-for-business-group-im-for-offline-members/49653511-4a9c-41ef-a5c9-a0e387425235?tm=1547833080895&rtAction=1547832891030

                            Previous version doesn't behave like this , Is this a feature or a Bug ?.

                                  Microsoft recently included NDI in recent update to the consumer skype version. Is there any plan to bring this to the skype for business client. As an E5 customer, Using this in conjunction with Skype broadcasts would be fantastic. To be able to use mutilple inputs with skype broadcasts via the skype for business client would be brilliant.

We suggest changing it to read "(user) received your message, but is now using Teams. For a richer experience, switch to Teams or start a Skype Meeting." as this more clearly states the situation and does not imply the message was not received and the user should use teams if they…

                                    • Make the Call/Answer button GREEN.

                                      There's no excuse not to. It makes literally the most sense.

                                      Currently, when we receive calls, 3 round and equally sized buttons appear on the computer screen. The left one (Answer Call) is blue, the center one (Settings?/Message? I don't remember) is the same color blue as the left one, and the right button (Hang Up) is red. When we get a phone call, we all expect to find a green button to press to answer. This is because any modern day cell phone follows this logic. A green button is the worldwide symbol for answering any phone call or…

                                          • Animal emojis

                                            Dear people
                                            We probably all know that humans aren't the best creatures, but all the other animals are.
                                            So my idea is to erase all those human-like stupid emojis and only add other animals.
                                            Why? Beacause Animals rule! That's it.

                                            If you don't like my idea... how about just more animal emojis and let the filthy human-emojis live on? There are no snakes, birds, worm, koalas, alpacas, different cats, bugs, rats, hamsters, different cats, cows, real bears, owls ... baby snakes, baby birds, baby worms, baby koalas, baby alpacas, different baby cats, baby bugs, baby rats, baby hamsters, different baby…
