LOVE the dark theme! It's so awesome! It's good on the eyes and I can appreciate the work they have put into the app. The only thing I don't like is the swipe feature while messaging I always seem to be scrolling through what I wrote and instead it snaps left or right. Other than that one complaint the app really has improved to what I think is way better!
I never had problems with my messages sending except for when Skype forced itself to update. I really dislike it, because most of the time, it won't tell me when someone messaged me, even when my notifications are on. I'll toggle my notifications in app, then get flooded with all the messages that were sent to me. Messages won't send, so it forces me to uninstall and reinstall and maybe then it works. I loved Skype before the update, and if you reverted and debugged, it would make millions happy. I like the cosmetics on this version, but it's not worth anything if my messages don't go through to my friends. Please fix the message and notification issues and make so many people happy. Thank you.
Contacts should come up first on opening. Lost the ability to see who's available and status at a glance and set my own status. How can Microsoft do this. No one wants to waste their time trying to Skype people who are not available. But then why am I so surprised when some time back Skype told me they were improving my Skype experience by making it unavailable on XP on my PC.
You really deserve one star for this one. What are you trying to do??? Basically today is only one user left in Skype that I keep Skype for. I hope to convince him to switch and goodbye Skype! After so many years... You killed what once was the best voip app. You guys got a tons of negative feedback. What are you doing with it? I didn't see one positive comment! You will attract no new users this way, but you will definitely loose old and loyal ones!
The newest update has gotten rid of; 1.split screen usage. 2.previous chat history. 3. Cant hide chats anymore. You can only delete them and loose all the history 4. You can no longer change it so you are no longer seen as invisible or away. I needed these features!!! The new colour themes and animations are very nice however. Skype seems to have turned into snap chat??? ....???
I would prefer to loose the 'location button' under the 'send message button' as I always seem to hit it in trying to send my messages. This app has a strong tendency of choking up and sometimes it stop sending any message after this occurs to that person... Even after I restart my phone. In fact if my work WiFi allowed the Discord app to function I would uninstall Skype
