Unreliable, more often then not does not ring when being called. As if the app is going to sleep in the background. Doesn't even give a missed call notification until opening the app. Battery optimization disabled, allowed to run in background. Pixel XL stock, both app and Android fully updated... Apparently I'm not the only one with this obnoxious and frustrating issue.
In 2018 all chat apps are pretty similar. So a ranking for Skype is based on the differences with other apps. The worst thing about Skype is that it now has these stupid emoji face response buttons which make it look like every single Skype message has a :-) at the end. Terrible.
App is really slow. App often freezes while fetching new messages. Chat automatically doesn't sync in way it should. Often times when you open a chat then it start to fetch previous conversation you did on Skype app on desktop. It is really slow. Please learn something from WhatsApp. Their UI feels so fluent and on top on that app works wonderfully.
What did you do?! I just updated skype, and almost all the functionality was removed in favor of making it "prettier." Now my video calls don't work unless it's the only thing I'm doing, and there is no apparent settings button. Burn it with fire!
I love this app and use it very often to call my family internationally. Very rarely there is an issue of poor voice quality or disturbance. I am extremely happy to use this service and i have been using t for the last two years. 🤗🤗
Looks amazing and works well. Needs SMS forwarding like for iMessage! Maybe making the status bar white and the status icons black will make the screen look less cramped. The search icon and notification icon might be the same size, but they have different visual weights. The notification icon looks a lot smaller. The icons at the top are all line icons whereas the bottom ones are solid icons. It looks inconsistent and unpolished.
We're listening to your feedback and working hard to improve Skype. Here's what's new:
- Stability and reliability improvements.
