    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.

    2. 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...

    3. Delete/clear sign-in info for Skype for Business client

      It would be great that you could provide us an auto-delete feature clearing the previous users’ sign-in info for Skype for Business client; since we use shared PC to have meetings it would be insecure to show next users previous user’s sign-in info.

    5. 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…

    6. Adjustable Hotkeys / Keyboard Shortcuts

      Hotkeys / keyboard shortcuts (e.g. for microphone mute) should be adjustable by the user to preferred key combinations.

    7. Search for a contact in the list of Chats/Conversations

      In case of a user chatting with multiple people, all the contacts appear as different tabs in a pane on the left side of the main skype window.
      If the user wants to search for a particular contact user needs to scan through all the contacts in the left side pane. It will be helpful if a search option could be provided on the top of the pane to quickly find the conversation with that contact.

    9. 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…

    10. Skype Conversation History - Cleanup

      “Skype Conversation History” builds up over time with duplicates and partial messages in Outlook. And the built-in “Clean Up” function doesn’t do anything with this folder.
      After some online search, I found this link which claims to do the exact same thing. I wish Microsoft included this as a built-in feature.

    11. Skype for Business Basic 2019 Installation via C2R

      If you want to use Office 2019, you cannot install different version of Office via C2R, so you have to choose MSI instead, however C2R is much easier to install applications. Thus, I suggest you make Skype for Business Basic 2019 to be installed via C2R instead of MSI.

    13. 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.

    19. Updating Emoji

      When we use Semi-Annual Channel for Office 365 ProPlus, Emoji is not showing correctly when some updates released on the supported Windows OS side.
      It is possible to show Emoji correctly if we update for Office 365 ProPlus client version; however, Emoji is associated with the OS functionality so that we demand information of up-coming updates in advance, and request Emoji would be shown correctly when the supported Semi-Annual Channel updated.
