Skype need major overhaul when I try to call overseas, will not connect. when someone video calls me, sometimes it works, sometimes not. Then it just cuts off. Makes me want an I-phone, Mr Android. :(
Freeze App I can not have a single conversation with anyone without the video freezing. I miss my iPhone when I could FaceTime. #dontdownload
New update Really liked how it was before. New update not so much. Keeps rotating despite auto-rotate being off, and even though vibrate notification was off keeps vibrating for every single message. Re-installing it just stuffed up Skype even more. Really frustrating
UPDATE : May 17 update has introduced a bug which greatly dims my picture randomly on my Galaxy S5 with Marshmallow (unresolved by May 27 update). Can fix by turning off camera and turning back on, but this is highly annoying. Was a great app until this, now Facebook Messenger is rapidly catching up ----- I am in a long-distance relationship so I have tried every video chat option. Not perfect but with the vagaries of Internet connectivity speeds it is hard to know how much of call quality issues Skype can control. The unlimited voice dialing plan to USA is also super convenient when traveling/living abroad.
Update 7.00.0.655 is awful Very dissatisfied with the current update. Not only did a slew of messages from multiple contacts just randomly dissapear, the forced rotation is killing me. Gone are the days of lying on my side, typing vertically. At least make screen rotation an option, like jesus dude. Yes I know, I'm bitter.
WTF AUTO-ROTATE? So many updates and yet all the same problems continue. And why, why, WHY is Skype now auto-rotating even though I have auto-rotate turned off on my phone?
