    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.

      • Better identify a speaker in the Speaker View

        When the speaker is a PSTN (phone/mobile) user, they will NOT show up in the Speaker View. The thumbnail of the last person connected via full experience will stay on top of the content, even if they are not speaking any longer, which is CONFUSING - it looks like someone else is speaking while they're not.

        There should be at least a way to pin PSTN user thumbnail to the Speaker View and hide the last-speaking USB user who's not presenting at that time. Otherwise it looks like someone else is presenting...

          • change notification to include “(user) received your message, but is now using Teams. For a richer experience, switch to Teams..."

            When a user sends a message to a user using only teams, a notification is presented “(user) is not using Skype for Business. For a richer experience, switch to Teams or start a Skype Meeting". This message implies to the user of skype that the message was not delivered. 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…

              • Skype for business/ skype broadcast - NDI

                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.

                      • Cannot switch in between two cameras of the same model/name

                        Hello,

                        I have Skype for Business 64-bit 16.0.10730.20264 on Windows 10.

                        I have connected two identical cameras. They are both shown in the video device selection of Skype as two entries with the same name (Logitech BRIO).

                        When selecting one of the two in Skype cameras, I see the picture/video of this one. When selecting the other camera, Skype still displays the picture/video of the first one selected.

                        The cameras work flawlessly in any other application on the same Windows 10 machine, and they can be selected and switched.

                        It seems that Skype cannot differentiate in between the two physical…

                          • 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…

                                • Enable sending large amount of Emojis in 1 message

                                  Hi All,

                                  When I was sending an entire message in Emoji's, I saw that the emojis are automatically blocked. Try it yourself, you'll probably come across the same issue.

                                  E.g.: (car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)(car)

                                  The idea is to have enable the functionality to send more than 8 emojis in one message. This will allow for my team to send messages across. We use it in our daily meetings to rate each others performance, and to describe certain problems to each other.

                                  Thanks for your vote and support.

                                          • Cat emoji

                                            Dear people
                                            We really need a cat emoji in Skype4B, this is so rassist, a dog is there, but where's the cat?
                                            Come on people please, we have 2018, this is so sad!
                                            Thanks for accepting us.
