Review from A Google User
Problems Dont really see the advantage in the new UI. 2 things I'd like you to change: 1. Orientation, cant go portrait mode on my asus eee pad. 2. Live sync issues, i only get notified about new messages when i go into the app, not by the notification bar, which is annoying
Consumes a lot of data in sending msgs, vedio calls n msgs especially as compared to whatsapp. Whatsapp uses very less data to chat n in very low internet speed as well u can at least check the what's app msg n reply. But skype needs speed, proper network n data too.
Bloatware. uninstall to revert to stock application already on phone. invasive new permissions wreak havoc potentially. read them and ask yourself why this app needs all of that access to your personal information and to be able to spy on you anytime it wants with audio and video.
Since the last couple updates notifications haven't been coming through on my phone, which is really annoying. On top of that, it takes ages to send my messages, even though I'm still receiving messages, and I often have to close the app and reopen it get them to send, and sometimes to even receive messages. Please fix!!
It's horrible. Ever since Microsoft took over there's been so many problems. Layout is nice, however I do not receive notifications. They constantly ruin the app by removing features and options that were useful for business and casual use. And now they've removed time zones from the Desktop app. I'm really considering moving to discord and quitting Skype. And for that I give it 1 star, even though I don't believe it deserves one
I too have bought a subscription for mobile calls to India. For the past 2 days it has been bad, no one can hear my voice on the other side. Please fix the issue. I am able to make a Skype to Skype call, that works perfectly well.
