Review from Farhad Bodhanwala
Does not work with Bluetooth headsets.
Pretty much unusable now. Update is terrible. Was only good for calling, now focuses on chat and stories that have absolutely no sense in Skype. Can't even see if the person is online. Have no idea what devs were thinking about. Will wait for couple more updates, but looks like it's time to forget about Skype
With the new 'generation' update I can longer tell who's online and who isn't as well as not being able to change to DND if need to be for those on PC. As well as that when trying to call my partner who uses his Skype on PC it nearly crashed his Skype all together! Really needs to be fixed or put back to the old version!
I wanted to try this after hearing from a few friends they used it. After getting it to finally work, I was so confused with the screen and than it just kept beep constantly telling us it's "reconnecting" and than it crashed, twice I think I'll stick with Facebook massanger
Would like an option to switch back to the old design. Also updating chats seems to take longer in the new version and I am not sure if I am actually getting all the notifications
Everything changed in the bad way. Cant find skype credit, or any basic information. Its for kids not adults now. I loved the old version.
Updated the new version during a Skype conversation so you can imagine how confused I was as the person was speaking with hasn't had the update. The new update is awful, feel like it's gone back in time. Also I have a notification of 1 new message constantly showing however there are no new messages, so frustrating. As most people have mentioned, there's no way of knowing if someone is online without clicking on them, just rubbish & waste of money to upgrade
We're excited to introduce the next generation of Skype.
Experience a brand new design and enjoy lots of new features that make experiencing life together easier everyday.
