Re: Split view in Skype 8 electron, did anyone test it?

Michele Barbi
 

Ok, first of all I think you made a typing error when you wrote the version you’re currently running. If you use Skype 8.50 as I think, you’ll have to upgrade to 8.51 recently released. If you don’t see it through check for updates feature, you’ll have to download the installer from Skype website.

I'm using Skype 5.80.0.38.

I can't find anything that shows a split view's available.

Hello guys, if I am not wrong Skype introduced split view in version 8.51 of its program, did someone test it? Most of all, I am not able to activate it on my Macbook which I am currently using (tomorrow I’ll be back home so I’ll use my Windows machine), possibly because it hopened the help session in italian when I clicked “learn more” and its translated using an authomatic system.

Problem with UWP Skype Scripts

Hamza Ahmad
 

Hello, I am using skype UWp “Microsoft.SkypeApp Version 14.50.0.38” on windows 10 1903 with j 2019. The problem is that the keys to move to enter message edit field and history list are not working yet. I found that the skype windows 10 app is almost similar to what we get from an electron app. If these issues are resolved, it is worth using. However, for making it more worth using. These are areas that are to be addressed: spellcheck should be accessible, and messages that are spoken in electron app should also be there in universal app.

sharing audio.

ken lawrence
 

Hi list was just wondering can you still share audio with skype 8 like with earlier versions?  For example if using skype for a conference call meeting in the event that do to weather or something a face to face meeting of a chapter of national federation of the blind isn’t possible would the president or whom ever be able to let the participents in the meeting hear the monthly presidential release?  Or if I needed to give tutorial help to one of our DJs on out of sight radionow that we don’t have a testing server could I be able to hear them as they do a practice show?

Ok, someone correct me if I’m wrong as I am not on my windows pc now, but I think this option is no longer under quick settings in Skype 8 electron scripts. Instead, press a left braket followed by insert+c, and when prompted type the command you want to use as Skype command key and press ok to confirm it.

Updating the Skype Command Key

Alan Conway
 

Hello,

I followed the procedure as I understand it for updating the Skype command key, but it would seem to have been changed. My understanding was that this option could be found after pressing insert+v in the Skype window and arrowing down. Its perhaps under another menu heading, but I'm uncertain where to look. Was I mistaken and can someone help?

Thanks in advance,

Alan


Re: renewing Skype subscription

Stephen Troy
 

there was, and probably still is, an option via a checkbox to confirm
that you want to auto renew the subscription or not. if you do not
check that box your subscription would simply expire on the date
stated.

nothing happens to your actual skype account. your subscription simply
ends if you don't renew it.

Skype isn't for emergency calling anywhere.

I've had the same notice here in Canada.

Dear Michelle & List:

I believe the message is hard coded for good reason.

 

Have not asked British subjects if Skype can be used to call 999 in the UK and Ulster or 112, 113 or 114, the numbers for Police, Fire or Ambulance in the rest of the world without influence from the UK, USA etc.

 

When setting up cell towers, there is an option to have them accept calls to 112 as well as 911. For several years, Siri knew 112 but not 911. My friend in NYC said no idea who 112 will connect you to. I said if the phone rings foreign style, tell whoever you have reached what you want, where and if they ask if you are in New York, Yorkshire, say no, the one with Kennedy International airport! Give them a minute to call your 911 or type the message on their TELEX and expect to hear the reassuring sound of responding sirens responding from 30-blocks away in a minute or two.

Cops give misdirected reports from other police officers priority response.

Not sure if European/Asian/Australian cell towers accept calls to 911.

Hi guys,

someone recently asked me if there is a way to prevent screen readers from telling this message when opening Skype. I sincerely did not give importance to this, I think it only means we cannot use Skype for calling, say, 911 in the USA; am I wrong? And most of all, what can you answer to my friend asking the above question?

It means what it says. Skype cannot be used to call 911, and no there is no way to turn it off, I'm glad of that for those of us that want to, or have to try.
