Review from A Google User
Better, but now there is bluetooth issues on 4.4.2
Its okay. You can only be online or offline can't be on do not disturb or away, the screen rotates even though my phone has rotate turned off, and you should be able to adjust how long "just now" is because 5 mins ago isn't just now.
I have to keep signing in. App was working just fine until a couple days ago. Now it signs me out everytime I close the tab. If I leave the tab open it just logs me out anyway aswell. I keep missing messages and calls because of this. No use for it if I have to keep interacting with it every 5 minutes.
Update 7.00.0.655 is awful Very dissatisfied with the current update. Not only did a slew of messages from multiple contacts just randomly dissapear, the forced rotation is killing me. Gone are the days of lying on my side, typing vertically. At least make screen rotation an option, like jesus dude. Yes I know, I'm bitter.
Remove auto rotate For many people having Skype on landscape is not practical if we needed it to auto rotate we can do it ourselves. At at least gives us both options portrait and landscape
Alright, still disappointed Skype was fine before, no need to change the layout. Now skype rotateswhen I don't have screen rotation on. That is very annoying
Interface is terrible! I have a Skype account that I use on my computer. Since I haven't logged in for a couple of years, I forgot my password, so, I tried to retrieve it. I chose to login via the code they send you on your email and it didn't do anything. Twice. I tried logging in though my Facebook account, and it only offered me to change my profile settings and to install Skype... which I had already done... I tried installing Skype and it told me that Skype was already installed. I tried that one more time and it didn't work
