Though many ppl say that skype is getting outdated. To my opinion, skype is still good in terms of availability when contacting a close-friend, family, or a distant relative that resides on a different country. All you need is a device that is internet capable and internet connection, and connecting to those ppl are just a few clicks away. Though the revamped version kinda ruins the scenery, it's still good that Skype is evolving. Microsoft has plans for this great app, to lead and compete with viber...
Needs major revisions Forces onto Skype wifi then complains no funds. Destroys battery life. Constant notification that imoji have been updated that I have to clear. Customer experience sorely lacking. Still a battery destroying app if running in back ground. Still failing to provide basic release changes. Why provide feedback that is ignored.

MSG is very unreliable MSG is very unreliable, especially with group chats. I can send private messages but if I join a group chat, 80% of the time my messages don't go through and if they do my chat doesn't update the newest messages. I basically have to wait update to update to see if the updates actually work.
MicroSoft finally killed Skype Install demanded it be linked to a MicroSoft email account which I did not need or want. Took 2 hours to install. Not sure if I now have an email account I'll never log into but the link between the accounts no longer exists. Will find replacement app.
TOO MANY DANGEROUS PERMISSIONS REQUIRED, AND AFTER ANY UPDATE IT ALWAYS RESTORES ITS AUTOSTART PERMISSION!! Also, font size way too small, app too heavy for older phones and DiamondCard.us is cheaper for intl calls, so I just use Zoiper caller and recharge my diamondcard. take care, M$.
Notification Problems I received a reply to a review regarding Skype not notifying me of incoming IM's in November of 2015 stating that the issue had been fixed. It hasn't. Skype still NEVER notifies me of new IM's, and it's been almost a year since this was supposedly "fixed."
