Though many ppl say that skype is getting outdated. To my opinion, skype is still good in terms of availability when contacting a close-friend, family, or a distant relative that resides on a different country. All you need is a device that is internet capable and internet connection, and connecting to those ppl are just a few clicks away. Though the revamped version kinda ruins the scenery, it's still good that Skype is evolving. Microsoft has plans for this great app, to lead and compete with viber...
WORST EXPERIENCE Atleast for me, its really worst video call experience. I couldnt connect or talk properly with my parents and not even with my brother in UK. I use 4G service which is instantaneous while connecting any site or video call but when comes to skype, it gets worse. Please correct the features or else soon some other services may over power it.
No way to send text messages to people not on Skype Used to use it to send text messages when I was traveling but can't anymore. To be able to send a text the person has to be added to your Skype contacts list however some of the people I text don't have Skype so I can't add them to my contacts it says not found when I search for their number and so can't send them texts. Used to be could send texts to any phone number but not anymore seems you can only contact other people on Skype. Will find another app instead.
Random system crash Skype has the best call quality, and requires the least data to call. But the app caused system crash twice, while I was in a video call. The whole phone was frozen, and rebooted itself in 10-15 seconds. I have HTC 10. It is still happening after this update. And I never get notifications of messages. And sometimes calls. People can't reach me. It doesn't matter which version I used. It happened in every versions.
Still crashes, audio drops out Runs okay on my Motorola Xoom tablet with video calling. Unfortunately, the app crashes the entire system after an indeterminate amount of time during a video call, causing the tablet to reboot. This is still an issue after several updates to the latest version. There is no audio alerting me to incoming calls. During calls, audio frequently cuts out, making it difficult to communicate.
Show and inefficient Extremely slow, battery and memory consuming app... have to remove it from my HTC desire. Nothing changed much since 2011. Still the most inefficient, slow, battery draining IM. Update: getting slower and slower with each release plus some weird functionally like voluntarily switching to sending to phone number. Looking forward to the some of my friends to switch so I can uninstall it finally.
