I can't hear the other side! They hear me and we can see each other. Video call drops out if any notification comes through on my phone. Useless as notifications are common. Ruined my planned call to my daughter on her birthday...thanks Skype for ruining hers and my special day!
I no longer like this app due to major changes they made with the app especially the UI. Indeed it is catching up with being modernized but it looses it's function. This is one of our main communication in the office, and it is really annoying we cannot put now our status to "away". It no longer has the Home tab, and people who you remove from your contact can still message you now. As we are using it in workplace, it doesn't look professional now due to lots of colors showing in the software (I think the developer only thought of mobile app user and not office people). I really like and miss the classic version, hope they will put it back. 😑
After the major rework of the app (after complete change of UI) sharing pictures through the app, crashes the app 99% of the time. Only way I can reliably share pictures is taking one with my native camera app and sharing it through the native album app. -Angry Sony user.
I have 3 things that you guys should do in the next update. 1. See whose viewed your highlight 2. Away and busy status like pc version 3. Change status with text. 4. N last but not least a show what your listening to feature n the ability to block someone from seeing that your online. We def need those Im sure everyone agrees
It's really annoying to have a window pop up when you're in a call and not in the app. I would really like to have an option to enable & disable this because I hate having it on while I'm playing.
Long gone is the time when skype was the best. Now comparing it to WhatsApp is almost impossible considering how much better WA is... Skype takes almost 10 seconds to launch. The menus and tabs are a mess with useless functions like bots and highlights. The neon geaphics not only are awful but also hard to decipher. The only good thing remaining of the old Skype is the possibility of calling landlines and linking a mobile number.
We're listening to your feedback and working hard to improve Skype. Here's what's new:
- Take call snapshots - instantly capture the best moments from any call and share them to the chat.
- View photos together - share your favorite photos and view them together with friends during a Skype call.
- General stability and reliability improvements.
