This app is usually buggy, but lately even more so. Often, my message isn't displayed in its entirety, truncating the last line. Then I have to edit to add a few words to get it to the right length to show up. That's ridiculous. Happens to my friend too. Half the time now, I don't even receive push notifications until 10 minutes, an hour, or hours later! Even restarting the phone doesn't fix it. It also freezes randomly for no reason. This is a messaging app. Can it at least get messaging right?

Update: So... It appears that you can message others on this app ...but it costs 11 cents!...😒 why? Yes...I think Skype is a good app. I've used it years ago and am now circling back to it. It has good features...but it would be great if it integrated as a standard messaging app on a basic level. That way, you wouldn't have to "invite" people to the platform. They'd see you were on it, and some would just migrate to it on their own to access all the features.... Just a thought.

I like Skype, I don't like Microsoft. They seem to be pushing people into using it via Microsoft with the live ID, this I don't care for because it's usually some ridiculously point Id name impossible to search for, and Microsoft just sucks. Otherwise as long as they keep it essentially what Skype is it's great. A lot more intuitive than telegram, much easier to connect with groups in a call.
