Are you invisible? I think there used to be a setting to enable calls from other contacts only in this mode. If it is not invisuble, I forgot what it was.

Hey Mike it’s Sheila. I just solved my problem. I had to uncheck the mute option so in other words when it says in the settings under audio to unmute on incoming calls, I had to check that box. It's fixed now. Yay! The only thing that missed lead me was the fact that when I did the audio test call with the Skype testing service I was able to hear my voice through the speakers of choice with the microphone of choice just fine I just was unaware of the box that I had to check for amusing myself on incoming calls. Glad I got that solved!

Does anyone know if if it's possible to import sound settings from Classic Skype?

Skype for Mac, a pair of possibly new hotkeys

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys, I was checking out the release notes of Skype 8.64, and figured out that they renewed hotkeys. Appart from the change of hang-up command in Skype for Windows which I aleady mentioned, as in subject I figured out of some commands for Skype for Mac which I didn't know, so I am not sure they were recently added but I am pointing them out since I think they can be useful. If you want to test them, go ahead!

options+1: go to recent chats

ctrl+shift+e: moves focus on the chat input box

Bye!

Re: maybe someone on this list knows

Larry Gassman
 

Hi,
If you have multiple sound cards, your settings in zoom may be pointing to the wrong sound card.
This has happened many times to me, especially after a windows update when the sound cards get switched back to defaults, by windows and I am left with no speech.
Also double check all mute buttons especially after windows updates.
If you only have one sound card, then you can probably delete my message.
Larry

I'm guessing you want to lower the audio on a call.

Ins-F11, arrow down to Speakers, and enter.

Choose M for volume mixer, and tab over to Volume For Skype and use the arrows to adjust volume.

That's how I do it, unless somebody knows an easier way to lower volume on a call, I'm interested.
