Version is getting much better. Wish the windows desktop/uwp version had audio memos. Also wish there were tabbed conversations with notifier dots for new messages...think landscape mode on windows. Hopefully more apps integrate like glympse, lyft, uber, spotify, OneNote shared lists, etc. Also, it would be nice to pin the apps we want vs all of them after the platform matures. Also there are too limited number of quick reactions. Let us have a small handful of emotions that we can pin and use instead of having to use
I'm not sure if I like this super charged version. Like overkill... WhatsApp, FB messenger, Twitter. Well I kind of enjoy those things separately. I still love Skype, like the new bright colors, group calling. But followers and voice recordings and instapics...some new features just feel oddly too familiar...I loved the more basic reliable version
It doesn't work on all devices. My phone for example, Skype is super quiet even when I turn the volume all the way up. When I put it on speaker phone nothing happens. It's pretty easy to use, but it could be better. Occasionally in the middle of a call it would just stop also. What I do like is that you can block and report people. So it's okay... But a normal cell plan would probably be better. :-\
I do not care for this New version of Skype. It does NOT give you an option to sign on with name and password. It provides you with a....sign on as and "your name is diplayed" and all one has to do is click on your name provied and your on. Anyone that gets ahold of your phone can access Skype this way. Allowing them all conversation saved and business matters. Not a secure app. I prefer the old Skype of logging on. You put in your own info!
It is significantly slower than the previous versions (before the full rebuild update). You don't always get the notifications for new messages, unless you open the application, and even then you have to wait for it to load all the "cool" animation and graphics. Need to be rebuilt again, but this time correctly. Edit: after the update you get some of the notifications. It is still slow thoough when you try to open the notification and reply
Used to be great. Only reasons it's 2 stars and not 1 is because of the Skype calls. But I use the messaging system more than calling. And I have to leave the app from the time I get up til I go bed because I don't get any notifications. So I can go all day and not know anyone messaged me. It's annoying. I Googled multiple times. This has been an on and off problems for several years. Fix the bloody app.
