It's good but... Fix a couple of issues like the time it needs to appear your people's list after you start the app. And for all that is good and holy add the option to disable these ANNOYING AS HELL plink-plonk sounds when trying to connect!!!
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
Please Answer, Skype team. Everything is fine. The only thing it needs is the capability to turn the flash on. It's annoying to turn the whole room's light to make a video call. It'll be awesome if you improved this. And, it would be even better if you made Skype able to turn the front facing flash on too (I have a Samsung galaxy j5, which has it). Thanks!
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."
Major issues The contact requests, calls and messages dont come through, the audio always cuts out and the call constantly drops! Need to ve fixed because this is the only video chatting app I use.... i dont want oovoo or some crappy app! I want skype
