Why are nearly all background effects completely unavailable on this app? You've spammed the internet with instructions for settings that do NOT exist in the android app. The only Audio & Video setting you have on Android is for noise cancellation. Why can't I blur my background or put up a custom image? Changing the settings on Windows does not carry over. Despite still sending out "updates" you do not seem to be supporting the app.

Had Skype while I was in a foreign country, seemed to be a great work around. I've since subscribed & had 2 major complaints. 1) I know that when I selected a US plan, it had described "unlimited" in the title... once I paid, that word had not appeared on any invoices or billing information - needless to say, there's nothing unlimited; calls or texts 2) I have received unknown numbers/messages, not even a week after getting the new number... One in particular was definitely a scam, beware

Emojis good, bandwidth overhead terrible. Also when I swipe to other apps sometimes when I come by Skype will only be using half my screen with no option to change. It's frustrating. I try another app and it'll send my texts and pics while Skype just sputters. Now they added their AI stuff. I keep accidentally touching it when trying to type then I have to delete everything and start over. When I share photos I have to work to avoid sharing things to Skype or bing accounts that I can't remove
