As a single father this is a wonderful app!! This gives my son the opportunity to talk to his mother face-to-face over a phone because sometimes we just can't get there to see her all the time due to life happens. So it allows my son ti see his mommy via Skype! So for that.....they get 5 stars!! Only complaint is the apps alert sound is very quiet and there are times you can't even hear it and you won't see that the other person texted 2 hours ago. Only complaint. So make the alert sound a lot louder and this would be a perfect app!!
The new update is extremely bad!!!! I cannot use other apps while still seeing and talking to the other person on Skype which is the biggest drawback.. please fix it.. other things like the hand up button being on the right side does not help either since everyone is used to the buttons being in the middle.. also the name and connecting and ringing sign going to the left was not really necessary.. please solve the problem soon..
Upgraded my phone from HTC One M7 to HTC 10 recently but found the current version of Skype has a serious sound distortion problem with HTC 10. The issue makes conversations over Skype nearly impossible. This is the basic and fundamental feature of Skype but unfortunately Microsoft just can't get it done. (Update on 13/Jan/18) The latest update in Jan 18 has fixed the sound distortion issue on my HTC 10. Thanks the Skype team!
Skype is currently slower than any other communication apps I use (Viber, Whatsapp, Slack). Furthermore, it has synchronisation issues where some messages show up on my computer, but not on the phone, or even vice versa. The issue still continues to be present still, an unbelievable low-level issue. Talk about missing MSN Messenger...
Microsoft must have done some work on the app its gotten a lot better in terms of videocalling and conference calling. I dont really use it for day to day communication ie instant messaging and stuff but I have just had a group call and I honestly did not expect such a good quality call. Thanks a lot and keep it up!
This app is retarded I used it last night for the first time in over 5 years well I went to sighn in today it wouldn't work. Wanted me to go to a Microsoft page I did that. And they said my account has been suspended. And don't have a clue why I haven't sent or done anything out of the ordinary.. this app deserves 0 stars
