    1. Don't see notification number popping up on the skype icon for the muted people/group.

      I do not see notification number popping up on the skype icon for the muted people/group. This way messages go unnoticed for hours. In older skype, we used to get the notification number on the icon itself so that we know we have a message waiting to get responded to even for someone who is muted.

    3. Display the current time in the Skype header

      Simple: please display the current time in the header of the Skype window. It would be particularly useful in Skype meetings.

    9. Unity

      We're now working a lot with Unity engine to develop a great stuff, also on AR ( Hololens ) and VR.
      We really like to "embed" a Skype call inside multiple platform, using a native Unity SDK!

    10. SFB Mobile App, while phone is asleep, should wake up from incoming call and IM.

      SFB Mobile App, while phone is asleep, should wake up from incoming call and IM. Otherwise people would miss their important business call. Just like whatsapp and good old gsm phone behaviour. Many customers are very surprise when they found out this issue. Never did they expect the App didn't handle this properly. Very sad.

    12. Overwhelming SPAM Calls on Skype for Business

      We are receiving 4-5 unsolicited spam calls per day. They leave empty voicemails and occasionally there is a robot/recorded telemarketing prompt on the other end.

      This issue is happening to 10+ users in our organization.

    14. Add user's local time and time zone to user info window

      What would it take to show what time it is for the person you are chatting to. Example: someone in Austin, TX talking to someone in India. You could put their local clock/time zone up in the user info box that is at the top of the chat window.

      Thanks

    15. Make Skype for Business the same as Skype

      I don't understand why 2 clients have been made for this, especially when both names are so similar, makes things very complicated.

      I think all the features that separate Skype for Business and Skype should be on one program! OR all contacts should be allowed to speak with each other with no restrictions.

      Skype for Business should have 1 thing extra which would be to be a presenter (meaning you can share files and screen with all other users but regular skype users can't share theirs) and it should be the account type that you pay for.

      Currently there is…
