Needs major revisions Forces onto Skype wifi then complains no funds. Destroys battery life. Constant notification that imoji have been updated that I have to clear. Customer experience sorely lacking. Still a battery destroying app if running in back ground. Still failing to provide basic release changes. Why provide feedback that is ignored. Read your critical reviews
SLOW AND UNSTABLE I find Skype less reliable than 15 years ago. The strange thing is that connections Skype to Skype were almost instant are delayed or do not connect. More dropped calls now. My broadband connection is 20x to 100x faster yet connections are worse now that Microsoft owns Skype. Too bad. I can't get Skype to launch on my phone running Android 6. It seem Microsoft is not very serious about fixing bugs.! Before you commit to Skype, check outher apps. Skype is not as good as it once was
Notification Problems I received a reply to a review regarding Skype not notifying me of incoming IM's in November of 2015 stating that the issue had been fixed. It hasn't. Skype still NEVER notifies me of new IM's, and it's been almost a year since this was supposedly "fixed."
MSG is very unreliable MSG is very unreliable, especially with group chats. I can send private messages but if I join a group chat, 80% of the time my messages don't go through and if they do my chat doesn't update the newest messages. I basically have to wait update to update to see if the updates actually work.
No pan like iPhone Skype when zoomed And... NO AUTOFOCUS on the back camera!!!!!! Where is it on the S7? I have started to like Skype for Android a lot more after a few initial hiccups by Microsoft team. Also the integration in or Microsoft products is great. Now for the single gripe. It does not do auto focus on the Samsung Galaxy S7 when in single resolution. It does it on the iPhone 6s.
MicroSoft finally killed Skype Install demanded it be linked to a MicroSoft email account which I did not need or want. Took 2 hours to install. Not sure if I now have an email account I'll never log into but the link between the accounts no longer exists. Will find replacement app.
