    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.

        • 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.

              • 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.

                    • Stop screen share automatically when the voice call ends.

                      When I end a voice call where I've been sharing my screen I'd like the screen share to stop, or at least Skype to alert me that it is still sharing. There is a very serious risk of the previous caller seeing something sensitive or confidential because the screen share is still running.

                      • Why is the accept calls in skype for business not green?

                        It may be that I only have this problem, but when someone calls me, I always press the red button.

                        I believe I expect a green button to hit when someone calls me.

                        Is there someone else who has this problem?

                        I think it's a little odd that Skype does not have a green answer button.

                        All phones have a green answer button or a red button when you do not want to answer.

                        I suggest you make the reply button in skype green.

                            • conversation list can become long - move current conversation to the top of the list to facilitate re-engagement

                              during a typical day9s) my conversation list can become very long (the list of people that I am IMing) - it would greatly improve efficiency if when I was communicating with someone, it would move that current conversation to the top of the list to facilitate re-engagement. That was the most recent conversation are always on the top of the list...... and please - after I have audio conferenced with someone, please do not put their name at the bottom of the list.... (off screen in some cases) - also put it at the top when the conversation is done.

                                I cannot remotely access a windows 10 computer via Skype For Business.

                                    • When sharing Desktop - Enable presenter to play video files with audio track to attendees

                                      Our presenters need to share their Desktop with attendees during Skype meetings because they need to switch between presenting PowerPoint slides and demonstrating a system regularly and fluidly using Alt+Tab.

                                      With our previous virtual meeting solution, presenters were also able to play video files to attendees and attendees could see the video via Desktop share and hear the associated audio for the video via the audio connection. This is not possible in Skype with Desktop sharing - the video plays to attendees but they are unable to hear the audio.

                                      The "solution" that MS have since put in place is…

                                        • Two Skype for business accounts on one device

                                          I have two different skype for business accounts from two organizations. I would like to use them parallel on all devices (Win-Client, iOS App). Unfortunately it is not possible to start two instances or two use two accounts in one client at the same time. But I have to be available for both organisations.
