    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.

          Need Skype for Business to support more than the 5 most active participants in gallery view. Host and presenters having a visual feed to all video participants to ensure that participants are fully engaged.

          • Keep the conversation history with one person in one conversation, stop creating different conversations while talking to the same person.

            Keep the whole conversation with the same person in one window, stop creating 100 different ones everytime a new conversation starts. It's so annoying to see 100 different chat conversations with the same person throughout the day.

                • Control call queue incoming calls and notifications on Skype client on desktop.

                  We would like to see an option to mute or disable call queue incoming calls on desktop client. Presently it is very annoying to be ringing desk phones and clients at the same time. if end users or admin have an option to mute or disable while them being the queue so that desk phone rings would be great. Same thing we can disable the missed call notifications as well for call queue that would be great as well.

                    • admin access over skype for business screen sharing

                      I cannot remotely access a windows 10 computer via Skype For Business.
                      When the user grants me control, I can control the screen but the control session locks when I try to do something that requires admin access.

                        • The most annoying thing about Lync and Skype for Business is the disjointed windows between the contacts window and the messaging windows.

                          The most annoying thing about Lync and Skype for Business is the disjointed windows between the contacts window and the messaging windows. My suggestion here is that maybe we could have both in a tabbed window or slide out from the main window.

                          You should be able to do everything from the one screen

                          Thank you and hopefully my suggestion will get some ground from other users too

                            • wireless screen projection feature in SRSv2

                              Having wireless screen projection feature in SRSv2 would be really great feature eliminating requirement of cables, adapters or supplemental desktops.
                              This feature will certainly resonate with the modern BYOD trend and especially with the natural need to have a as less cables as possible.
                              (Currently we can project screen of clients without SfB desktop client installed into SRSv2 meeting using the HDMI-in cable)

                                Currently Powerbeats3 Wireless headset is incompatible with Skype For Business on Windows 10, despite Microsoft being the author of the Powerbeats3 driver and despite the headset being compatible with other comms apps on Windows 10. Seems like it should a quick, easy win.

                                • Chat window and main window should be one not two separate ones

                                  It is irritating that when you use Skype there are two different windows. They should be one. I do not want to have to go back to the dock to find the other Skype window e.g. I am chatting to someone, then I need to chat to someone else, I do not want to have to go back to the dock to pull up the other window.

                                  • Support For Conversation Update Activity For Bots

                                    Hi ,

                                    I along with my team has built a SfB bot using MS Bot Framework and deployed it to SfB in hybrid environment. It's crucial for our development that bot should initiate the conversation with a greet message. Unfortunately we are unable to produce this behaviour in SfB using "ConversationUpdate" event which SfB interprets differently. The same approach works on Skype Channel.
                                    Can you please provide some support for this.

                                    Also there is no way to detect the device type of user using the "UserAgent" . Can you kindly tell the best approach for this with respect to Bot…

                                      Can you guys develop a status message on the main Skype client window which can be used to push out sticky notices for the company. i,e displaying a notice for Help Desk details or Alerting users of an exercise currently happening. This is similar to what you normally find on Websites especially forums informing users of new services /offerings

                                        • Disable edit previous conversation message in Skype client

                                          Originally, previous converation message in Skype client could not be modified but a user can modify previous message in Korean language.
                                          Although it does not apply to conversation history but user experience is not good by this problem.

                                          In my customer's case, a bad guy modified conversation message in his Skype client and shared it with other people using desktop sharing. Nobody think coversation history has been modified because he show his current conversation window (not image, not email message).

                                          I request "Disable edit previous conversation message in Skype client for Korean language" like other lanuages, English for example.

                                          • Allow your custom location to display on your contact card and when chatting with others

                                            In the Skype for Business client you can set your location. This is only viewable to other people if they have you added as a favorite. Why not allow this custom location to be viewable from the contact card and while chatting with someone?
