Its accessing Precise-GPS location !! Device's internet IP-adrs auto-discloses IP-network location to external servers & suffice to provide services to phone software, so NO need to access GPS-Loc or Net-Loc services directly from phone itself. its accessing ALL LOGs+History, All WebSite/URL visited List, Running app List, etc !!! are massive Violation of Privacy-Rights. Even Law-Enforcement needs Court-Order for such History/Log/Private Data ! App's Dev should release separate Skype-Precise-Location Plugin app, then users who need to share their location can load+use that. When app dev/ops/grp wil Respect Privacy-Rights & apply it, then we wil update this review. Thanks.
Just loops over and over telling me to enter password. I have reset password several times and still get same thing. Reinstalled 2day 25/2/2017 and tried new email accounts but still just get taken back to enter password. Ps have just found my dad through skype in uk and im in nz. My pc stuffed out n stupid app wont work on fone so cant contact my dad again after 25 yrs.
I'm trying reset my password on my Samsung note 4 and it's just not letting me submit any of my options. So I'm going to delete and reinstall the app. Doesn't work, I'm leaving the review. Sorry, you guys are great but need improvement. Keep working at being the best.
Does Skype not run in the background anymore? I dont see the icon in the notification bar, the app running in the background when minimised, or getting notifications when Skype in minimised or not active on the screen. What is the point having an IM software that behaves this way? It's not "instant" anymore.
It's alright, however it needs work. Whenever I'm signed in, at random times it just signs me out and doesn't allow me to sign back in until I reinstall the app. On top of that, the multiple admins of a call thing is rather annoying, because it allows individuals to remove whoever they please from the call. Please fix this.
CARE: this app sneakily accesses your private contacts even if you deselect this option in both Skype Settings (as they themselves suggest) and Application Permissions. Pretty underhand and duplicitous behaviour: I wonder if they have an explanation for seemingly deliberately misleading people in this?
What's new in this version?
In this release, we've included a number of general improvement and feature updates to make Skype better for you.
