Can't see if my contacts are online, I don't even know if I appear as online or not, it really bothers me. I don't like this update at all. I don't care about highlights, basically every single app is adding those useless things to their platforms and it's annoying. Please bring back the old version, or at least make it more mobile and user friendly. Until then my rate will be just one star.
Pretty much unusable now. Update is terrible. Was only good for calling, now focuses on chat and stories that have absolutely no sense in Skype. Can't even see if the person is online. Have no idea what devs were thinking about. Will wait for couple more updates, but looks like it's time to forget about Skype
Updated the new version during a Skype conversation so you can imagine how confused I was as the person was speaking with hasn't had the update. The new update is awful, feel like it's gone back in time. Also I have a notification of 1 new message constantly showing however there are no new messages, so frustrating. As most people have mentioned, there's no way of knowing if someone is online without clicking on them, just rubbish & waste of money to upgrade
Would like an option to switch back to the old design. Also updating chats seems to take longer in the new version and I am not sure if I am actually getting all the notifications
I hate the new update it's not user friendly. The previous update was much better. The only thing about this is that you get to chose your colour. Bring back the old version pls.
I wanted to try this after hearing from a few friends they used it. After getting it to finally work, I was so confused with the screen and than it just kept beep constantly telling us it's "reconnecting" and than it crashed, twice I think I'll stick with Facebook massanger
