All the "improvements" to the Skype within past few years have moved Skype from my most used communication app to the last. Skype was great, because it had features other apps didn't. Now it is more like others, but not in the good way :-(
The new version is very bad. Lacks important settings /configuration options. Worst performance ever on a communication app. (almost) Every open is reloaded (wave icon displayed), slow, not responsive (on S8 loading background end is visible - which you see alot) and many more smaller or larger problems.
It has gotten so much better. Why is it only #10 on Free Communications? It should be higher. I don't think people know that Microsoft owns Skype.
3 way video group call has an issue, I can see my video that I am sending plus the video of the 3rd person added but the 2nd person only shows as an avatar, no video although the audio does work. I hate the Discover feature, should be able to turn it off. The app is far too slow to open/start, and far too slow to connect skype calls. Should support (1) multiple Skype accounts concurrently, (2) Screen sharing, (3) Bluetooth, (4) Picture in Picture.
Not able to find who is online and who is busy. No user status is available like before. Hope skype can fix this issue.
This app is a memory hog and always running...I am not able to kill it so I am uninstalling it.
