Over the last few updates lots of issues have been resolved and Skype is now running super smooth. The user interface took some time to get used too but it's pretty flash and easy and provides a good user experience. Uploading photos still has a minor flaw, it takes a long time to see the thumbnail of your pictures before you can pick the one you want to upload. But overall very happy with the latest Skype.
They keep going backwards with this app. Performance sucks on the S7, they are increasing bloat like the damn Cortana assistant you can't remove or block, it automatically fills messages with call me later in stead of letting you begin calling right away. I wish there were a viable video alternative... Alas there isn't. Otherwise, telegram or Whatsapp works much better for audio alone.
Love Skype just wish it would stop logging me out and deleting my entire contact list 2 times a week. Every time I log in I never know which old set of convo histories will come back. It's like I have 3 accounts all under the same sign in name
App don't open up fast and connect at the speed of stone age period. What's app open up at lightning's speed, good app overall and nice UI but need to work on speed. One more thing how do we get that message is seen and you should also include when message is seen. Size of app is tremendous. Developers are you sleeping reply to this comment. It have been a month and you haven't replied.
Previous version was much better. Why Microsoft changed something that was working so well. Now when you are close to different Wi-Fi networks it goes from Wi-Fi to cell data and then back again. Always reconnecting. On the other side now you don't loose the connection when going from one network to the other, that's good but not when it happens continuously.
I have never had an app give me so much trouble. I get a message that says that I have an old version and my contacts may not get my messages. But there is no update in the store. So I click the link in the app and I am brought to an iframe of the US store. Click that link and it downloads Skype beta which I sign into and it spins on the white screen for minutes then I get a blank blue screen. Close the app and restart and I have to sign in again with same results. So I uninstall both and reinstall this one. Same sign in issue. So now I have gone from maybe they won't get my messages to unusable app I can't do anything on. Thanks
