Not surprisingly I haven't heard back from Skype/Microsoft, however my granddaughter's husband called to see us today, he works at the same place as my son, looking after the ABC's transmitters and he told me that Microsoft are concentrating on the business version of Skype and so are removing everything that's not required for business, hence the removal of the ability to set speakers and headset separately. He knows this because his company, a national one, has just removed all the internal phones and Skype is on all technician's cell phones. It means of course that a phone call to the company can't be transferred to any individual! You may wonder why I didn't ask my son, he is sailing on the Queen Elizabeth from South Africa back here to Perth.
