Review from A Google User
New Skype... I'm not crazy about the new design, because it's not as handy and doesn't provide as good an oversight. What's worse, it takes forever to launch now. As previously it was ready in about 10 seconds, now it takes about a minute. An update with very negative effects... Very disappointing... After the last update, although it promised better performance, it still takes forever to load. It also seems to mess with the Wi-Fi, turning it off and unable to turn on again. Only after a reboot it works again.
I find Skype less reliable than 15 years ago. The strange thing is that connections Skype to Skype were almost instant are now delayed or do not connect. Dropped calls are more frequent 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 seems Microsoft is not very serious about fixing bugs.! Before you commit to Skype, check other apps. Skype is not as good as it once was. I am Premium client paying for a phone number as well as Skype Pro. Too bad the service now sucks
What the hell is going on with this app???..keeps crashing and putting me insible and calls drop, or cant hear the person speak and vice versa or can't answer the calls....wish you put the Skype icon back in the notification bar like before... Pls fix this app...it used to be soo good!
I have never had a problem with Skype. Until someone decided that I need a Microsoft account in order for me to sign into my Skype account in this device. If this is a bug please fix it. If it's not please Skype explain to me why you're forcing me to create a Microsoft account?
They keep adding useless features, the contacts page is a mess - try adding a contact without making a call, random IM from Skype and strangers, it's really meant for windows phones not android.
Skype used to be great but since the dreaded Microsoft got its filthy hands on it all has gone to hell in a handcart. There are now far better and less buggy alternatives.
Omg i cant even sign in it just repeats "enter your password" page! And im very sure that the password is right i even changed it. What is happening microsoft
Thanks for using Skype!
