Version is getting much better. Wish the windows desktop/uwp version had audio memos. Also wish there were tabbed conversations with notifier dots for new messages...think landscape mode on windows. Hopefully more apps integrate like glympse, lyft, uber, spotify, OneNote shared lists, etc. Also, it would be nice to pin the apps we want vs all of them after the platform matures. Also there are too limited number of quick reactions. Let us have a small handful of emotions that we can pin and use instead of having to use
It is significantly slower than the previous versions (before the full rebuild update). You don't always get the notifications for new messages, unless you open the application, and even then you have to wait for it to load all the "cool" animation and graphics. Need to be rebuilt again, but this time correctly. Edit: after the update you get some of the notifications. It is still slow thoough when you try to open the notification and reply
It doesn't work on all devices. My phone for example, Skype is super quiet even when I turn the volume all the way up. When I put it on speaker phone nothing happens. It's pretty easy to use, but it could be better. Occasionally in the middle of a call it would just stop also. What I do like is that you can block and report people. So it's okay... But a normal cell plan would probably be better. :-\
I'm a frequent Skype user over the years and they have improved previous bugs but now a new problem came out of nowhere and I'm hoping Skype sees this. Idk why, nothing's different and it happens on both lines but the audio call will get silent out of nowhere. One side will hear everything but the other person won't and in about 1 minutes it goes back to normal. It's very annoying it happens everyday every hour.
I hate this. It loves to go haywire very often especially during calls. And during those calls it usually doesn't even allow you to use the buttons in the call. So more often than not I can't even hear someone on the other end because the speaker button won't work. It also won't even ring half the time so I won't know if someone called unless I actually enter the app. I hate this so much but it's all I have.
things yet to improve.... 1. again impossible to share files... 2. an option to remove message for myself and the other side like it is possible on Viber or whatsapp.... 3. status indicator on message when it has been received and when it is read... 4. encryption option for chat and calls unless it is all encrypted by default.... 5. faster start-up speed and less animations for a sleek experience.... Also for some reason the version on GooglePlay store has not been updated since May 2017. Please fix it.
