It worked so well before you changed the look of things. Guys. Why. Please, you’re Microsoft - make a functional app that feels like it was designed to work on the iPhone...basically every other VOIP app puts you to shame. 2 stars because sound quality is fine.
Arsataev's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/6/18 6:50 PM
I like Skype and I using subscriptions. Many years I work remotely, and Skype helps me support my business when I far away from Russia. Caller ID does not work properly. When I call to Russia using Skype, sometimes it shows my number but most time not. Can you guys fix it?
Sykokaiden's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/6/18 5:17 AM
I’ve been using Skype for years. And it truly is a joke of a program. They want to focus on making the app prettier when I can’t even see the other party or myself when my camera is ON because of this latest update. How about an update that fixes EVERYTHING and not just an organizational thing but screws up a major function.
crazy hobbit's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/6/18 4:41 PM
It’s too often closing sharing box when trying to share some pictures from my pictures collection. Sometimes you even don’t have chance to click on Done button when the Share popup closes. This issue is forever happening in this app and I’m wondering maybe in the next century it will be fixed or maybe my iPhone X is too old device that’s why sharing doesn’t work properly?

She is worthless. Would give two stars for her demise. Would give three starts if they switched back to the old Skype since it was better. 4 stars if you bring back dark mode like what the Linux Skype used to have before they dropped support for it. SMH. Fail after fail going on here but maybe the ship will only graze the iceberg now. So glad I haven’t upgraded Skype on my computer since it is cleaner looking and has more features.
Snailicious's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/4/18 3:01 PM
Call quality is good. I find the interface difficult to use, can’t see the number attached to contacts - sometimes I call landline sometimes cell as my frequent callers do not have skype or at location without internet. I need to know which number I’m calling. Difficult to use address book too. I remembered the UI wasn’t so confusing before. Need a favorites list and access to our iPhone address book.
EpicTuber's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/4/18 1:13 AM
I’ve used skype for many years now and I saw that a lot changed about it and so far I am really disappointed. It can be really slow sometimes (very often after using my phone for over an hour), it’s really hard to understand somethings about it and the skype support doesn’t work at all it asks me for my email but then says that it’s taken... This is my review for the mobile version of skype Some changes have been made on the computer version too which I don’t really like tbh and in my opinion it could just be more simple like it used to be before because to me they over complicated it now.

Flip-fone's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/30/18 7:21 PM
Skype user for 20+ years and now this becoming nothing more than an advertising shill for Microsoft. To Microsoft’s credit it has taken over three years to destroy the utility of Skype This last release does not even seem to have been beta tested unless all the current forced upgrades are the beta test. Version 8 is up to release 30.1 and it still lacks the features of version 7 which lacks the features of version 6. How is this forward motion and improvement?
Ness19dsm's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/30/18 6:08 AM
the worst part — can’t go back to classic version on iphone. newer version is jaw dropping bad: absolutely counterintuitive, u*** color schemes, overly cumbersome, and not even functional!! have money on the account but can’t make a call, bc keep getting “internet connection is too weak”. NEVER had this problem w prior version on same internet connection. seeking alternatives at this point. whoever thought this was a good idea should be fired.

I used Skype for so many years but I am starting to decrease the use due to the so many options on the screen. I like to make phone calls to my parents who are seniors. They received my calls over the land phone. They do not use computers or phones with camera. I like to hear their voices daily. Because of that I am stopping it’s use and every month is less and less. I also had interviews over the phone with camera but it is not all the time. I really missed to see my contact page now it is impossible to find my numbers or to edit some old numbers.

I’m trying to get in contact with people for business and it’s literally impossible. They sent me an invite and i can’t find it and get no notification if it. I send them invites and they can’t find them. This app is so hard to use compared to everything else. The whole design is silly. Why is the app so over complicated? Make it simple and easy to use. I’d use something else but apparently it’s policy to use this piece of garbage.

D.F. Barnacle's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/3/18 8:49 PM
I used to use Skype regularly to make calls to international numbers. I guess Microsoft weren’t keen on that, as they’ve made it all but impossible to do. I’ll have to find an alternative. *edit*: just read all the reviews where Microsoft has posted ‘sorry, but not our fault’ responses. Microsoft, if you made these changes because of what users were saying, you didn’t understand them well, believe me! *update*: the layout seems to have been much simplified now; once again, I can find what I’m looking for. I the meantime though I wonder if Skype has rather lost its relevance.
planeKrazy's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/3/18 8:29 AM
I’ve been using Skype for years. In fact, I was a customer in Europe long before it became popular in the Us. Skype has been going downhill ever since Microsoft took over. It’s now a cesspool of advertisement and lists of people MS thinks I should know but who I have absolutely no interest in knowing. Also, often when I call a friend’s number via Skype the person’s phone never rings, instead it goes straight to his or her voice mail. When I call the very same number just 30 seconds or so later, but using the regular phone connection, their phone rings and I get to talk to them. I wish Skype would go independent again. It used to be such a fantastic company but it’s now been destroyed by Microworst.

stepheno3's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/3/18 2:35 PM
One thing I will say that you all need to bring back, and this is not only for Skype for iPhone, this Skype everywhere. When you are in someone’s profile, and you look at their location, a big mistake that y’all made, was taking out the time where Syd person is. Because I would not want to call somebody in Australia, or England, and it be 3 AM. Another thing is, what I think you need to bring back, is the sign and sound, and sign out sound with Skype. And also, on the Mac, and window side, get rid of the Skype preview. And one last thing, on the backside, make it to where users like myself that are using voiceover, can create hot keys, for such purposes as, answering a call, or different things like that. And on a last note, try to improve the sound quality of your calls! And get rid of all the static in the background! And make it like it was in Skype 3.8 for windows all across the board. And also, one last thing, is I would really like to see regular Skype names come back, where you can create a Skype username.

Mom3030's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/3/18 11:32 PM
Why do you not take the privacy of your users seriously?? If I make myself as invisible or unavailable I expect it to stay that way until I change it. Not show as active every single time; then I have to change it. In reading back on other reviews this is an issue with your app. You did it for a while and then you always revert back. What do you gain from it?? Not more users. I’m out. I will snap chat or use Kik from now on...but you broke the trust one too many times.

Marmur99's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/27/18 6:54 PM
I’m a software engineer and have really hard time understanding this new UI. I never know how to find contacts, when I finally find them, I don’t see a simple way to call their PHONE numbers directly from Skype. I end up copying their numbers from my contacts book to skype. I remember it was way more intuitive before.
Nathan Smith's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/27/18 5:41 PM
With each update, Microsoft says they’re listening to Feedback. But before they made the app “pretty“, it had 3D Touch. A firm press on the Skype icon brought up the dial pad, and inside the program a small contact icon would open up the actual Apple contact menu, making it much easier to call someone. I PAY for a yearly subscription, and also I PAY for a San Francisco phone number that forwards to my Italian phone number. Some of us actually use this program to make phone calls! Most people have an iPhone 6s or better. Especially today. Please put back the 3D Touch you took away! And if you could put back the Apple contact menu that would be wonderful. Often I have a home, an office, and a cell number for my friends, but even after importing them into Skype, when you click on the name, you don’t know which number you’re calling. The way it worked before was so much better. Microsoft, are you listening?

When using the mobile app you can log on and see friends are online. You get no response. The calls don’t even ring. You restart the mobile app and it says they hadn’t been online for hours. This has been progressively getting worse for me through the updates. Might just stick to using FaceTime going forward if things don’t improve.

The app crashes whenever I open it, and even if it’s open long enough to call or text someone it freezes my phone. And this is without mentioning that Microsoft is the worst company that exists today.

Waste of storage, waste of time, waste of data. 👎👎👎

Levicita's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/24/18 11:28 PM
I have been using Skype since the very beginning when it used to be easier and free! Since Microsoft bought it, well they started charging and I understand they’re a business but they are constantly “updating” the software which usually is not for better, it’s just a lot of stuff I don’t need and don’t have the choice to get them out of my way but most importantly PLEASE MAKE IT REALLY USER FRIENDLY!!!!! because it is not. Sometimes I hesitate about updates because it tends to be a pain to find out again how to do the basic stuff and sometimes impossible. I didn’t want the app to import all my contacts, I would like to choose which ones, update their info, etc. Maybe Microsoft people never test their product and don’t realize these issues ?? PLEASE pay attention, I like Skype but don’t mess it up !!

walkingwhitecloud's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/22/18 11:03 PM
1) My experience with Skype over the last six years has been very good on both my laptop and my iPhone. I mostly use Skype for calling telephone numbers. Indeed, I have listened to lectures by dialing a phone number and experiencing excellent connections for hours at time. 2) With this app on my iPhone, the volume and clarity are particularly good with 50-mps wifi on my end. 3) Some other times, the volume of the other person has been a bit low, but I was still able to understand what the other person was saying. 4) The only funky thing that I have found with the app was when I wanted to add a secondary email address to my account. I read help first, but it seemed to be out of date since the navigation information in the help text didn’t correspond very well with the app. Eventually, I deduced that I couldn’t use the app to update my email addresses. I had to chat with support and login in to the Skype website to make the modifications. Most apps allow you to change email addresses within the apps.

absurdistfiction's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/21/18 8:28 PM
I signed up to help check my girlfriends internet connection for an important call. First, I have a Skype account but it said the account did not exist, nor did the phone number it was tied to. So I decided to use the phone number to create a new account and got an error message that the phone number was already linked to an account! So it is and isn’t linked to an account?? So after being stuck in a infinite loop of stupidity I used another number to create an account and while that worked it gave me a Skype name more absurd and scattered with letters and number than a Pynchon novel and guess what? You can’t change your Skype name unless you change the email! So I create a new email and you know what? The app won’t let me add that ridiculous thing. This app is a modernist Kafkaesque nightmare. Get it together Microsoft, no wonder you’ve failed in the consumer space. One Star.

Okay it lets me talk and stuff but 1. It freezes a lot and/ or crashes 2. It doesn’t let me video call outside the app 3. IT DRAINS MY BATTERY. Like I’d be at 80% in a video call then 20 min later 30%. Can you not k*** my phone thanks.

Did fresh update of iPhone 6s Plus to IOS 12.0 and Skype 126.96.36.199 - and Skype askes for access to microphone - but I can not give access because Skype does not see microphone to allow access to microphone. MS Tech Support could not find fix... = 1*. Hard to believe....

ArisAnin's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/20/18 6:43 PM
The new updates do not allow you to turn off integrated calling. This is likely because skype wants to assimilate with your phone in the worst way. What a trash app it’s become. Bring the options back!!! If not it’s an invasion of privacy. I will start a smear campaign from h*** if this app continues to not offer his option.

walkingwhitecloud's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/17/18 7:34 PM
1) My experience with Skype over the last six years has been very good on both my laptop and my iPhone. 2) With this app on my iPhone, the volume and clarity are particularly good with 50-mps wifi on my end. 3)Some other times, the volume of the other person was a bit low, but I was still able to understand what the other person was saying. 4) For me, the UI is a little confusing. 4.1) This app defaults to a list of recent call numbers without any labels. The numbers are meaningless if I am unfamiliar with them. 4.2) When I want to make a call, there are two icons, a handset receiver and a touch pad. I guess I expect to see one icon. 4.3) When a call is over, I have to touch a left arrow in the upper left-hand corner to get to the screen with a red telephone icon to terminate the call. Why isn’t the icon on the screen from which I’m making the call? 5) Also, when I wanted to add a secondary email address to my account, 5.1) I couldn’t use the app. I had to chat with support and login to their corporate website to make the change. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to use the app to add the secondary email. 5.2) When I read their Help info, it referred to things that aren’t on this app.
ragerka's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/17/18 6:22 PM
Everything from there application, website and server architecture is broken. There customer service will even agree with you on how much Microsoft has s****** themselves with poor products and extra requirements in order to use their products. Microsoft has even tied the hands of their own customer service staff, they are just as confused on how they are to resolve issues with all the constraints Microsoft has put on them. I'd recommend using any other product than a Microsoft product these days. Microsoft has fallen behind.

colcafe's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/17/18 11:06 PM
I have used Skype for many years to talk with my family and friends abroad. After the last upgrade, the other party can’t see my video, even tho I can see myself in the small square. I tried deleting and reinstalling, and even tho I gave it permission to use the camera, my friends still can’t see me. Skype was always reliable, but now you can’t really count on it. It seems like a good thing is ruined. It’s a sad day.
wingsofblood's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/16/18 8:42 PM
Thanks so much for the mandatory update in the middle of hurricane Florence - not only did it boot me out if the call I finally managed to patch through after days of little to no data, it proceeded to take hours to update from the horrible connection through the storm - rendering me unable to do jack else on the phone while it wasted my time and battery.
Cookeram's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/16/18 8:24 PM
Definitely an overall good calling app. I’ve used things like FaceTime and Snapchat to make video calls before, but they just don’t work as well. Skype usually seems to load no matter what, unless the connection is extremely poor which isn’t the fault of Skype. One of the main drawbacks is all the buttons littering the screen. Like many other reviewers have stated, things are a bit over crowded, especially for a phone app. My screen is small enough as it is and I want to see the person I’m talking to. That’s the point of the video call. My biggest gripe here is the poor internet connection notification box. Can we please move the poor internet connection notification box? It pops up right in the center of the screen! Thanks for telling me I have a poor connection, but I don’t understand why something can’t pop up in the corner. This notification blocks my whole entire screen so I can’t see who I’m talking to. This just makes me want to use an app that doesn’t tell me about the strength of my internet connection (because I don’t care about that information anyways). It would definitely be a five star app if these few problems could get addressed.
Nafiul244's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/16/18 6:46 PM

If u use a Microsoft account to log on to skype, u will NEVER be able to delete your Skype account unless u want to also lose your Microsoft account (and anything else u have connected to it) FOREVER. I tried having one meeting on Skype and the damage that program did to my laptop was incredible. I couldn’t wait to delete it. Additionally, it adds a side panel to my inbox now that cannot be gotten rid of to constantly annoy me. Horrible.

Without a doubt, one of the most complex apps to setup and navigate!! How is this app, that WAS relatively simple in 2014, now so onerous to navigate . . and with on-line help that is just scatterbrained? (Answer: buy an app from a creative developer and assign a mob to “improve” it.) However, when you finally make a connection it works quite well and at low cost!

Skype has been my go to solution for video networking with my family, over FaceTime because of the fact my entire family owns Android phones. But here recently, I’ve not been able to enjoy the use of Skype anymore, because I can’t see the messages that I’ve sent. It takes me having to force close the app, and reopening it for my messages that I’ve sent to appear. It’s also been locking up and not responding while trying to do pretty much anything in the app, including sending things found on Bing

Picass0's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/1/18 5:46 AM
Updated 9/1/18: the read receipts promoted in new update do not work for me and other users. We have deleted/reinstalled the app, make ourselves active and visible and still we do not see when one another has read the message. Older review: There is nothing exciting about the new update. It's horrible. Too many steps to do what used to be so easy. Skype calling has taken a backseat. If I want Snapchat, I'd download Snapchat.
KageShiRyu's Review of SkypeReviewed on 9/1/18 5:27 AM
I have used Skype since 2014. And made many connections with people. It used to make sense. It used to actually be a program that was useful. Now it’s a bad version of Snap Chat. Not everyone is a 14 year old vlogger with the latest model of phone or high tech laptop. Some of the world, shockingly enough is poor and can’t afford to upgrade their device every year. The worst part is the removal of the jump back feature that allowed us to return to certain points in time in a conversation, including back to the very beginning. Up till about 6 months ago (as of writing this in the end of August of 2018) I was able to scroll or go all the way back to the beginning on either my phone (both the old iPhone 4 and the new SE) or my laptop. Yet now, I and my friends can not go back any farther than April 22 2017. And some of them I’ve known since 2014. How are we supposed to reread or save the stories we spent hours, days, and years working on? According to the supposedly smart developers: We can’t. Skype has really fallen low. And I will no longer be using it. And telling my friends to switch to a chat app that actually works. Like Discord. Perhaps if Skype figures out how to fix themselves and recovers all the lost messages that we never deleted so we can get our stories and Roleplays back, I might consider going back. However, as it stands, stay away from Skype. They have drowned themselves in the gutter trying to appease an idea of a generation that isn’t old enough to fake an id check.

So I have been a Skype user almost since it’s inception. It’s been a frustrating path but I feel like it’s finally getting there. If your network connection is good it works as advertised and at least on the iPhone and Android and PC does a good job. I seldom give kudos to Microsoft but these guys are doing a good job on Skype.

Microsuck keeps providing updates and yet they are incompetent to have this issues fixed. They trumpet that this app is compatible with iOS 9, yet they neither have the willpower nor the competency to test that it does not. If your app is not compatible with iOS 9 due to crashes, then don't advertise that it is compatible. It has been crashing for more than 10 iterations and Microsuck fails to fix it. Maybe you are saying that nobody uses iOS 9 anymore. If that's that case why build for it? I am using iOS 9 because the iTouch 4G is not compatible with higher OS and I am not willing to invest in Apple products any more. In addition, Microsoft hires fake reviewers to write all these positive comments. They have over 11K reviews for Skype, most of them 5 stars. Well, take a few minutes and click on the 5-star reviewers' name and you will be surprised that the majority of them have not a single app review on the App Store but a single 5-star review for Skype. Yes, I believe that in a heartbeat that they are all legit 5-star reviews. iOS 9.3.5 iTouch 5G

It also keep saying he has to accept my invitation before I can message him. Contacted support but they weren’t able to help. They kept wanting me to check things in the app so I would get disconnected from them and have to start over. I’ve deleted the app as it would not work at all for me.
Jasonian.'s Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/6/18 7:47 AM
Prior to the recent updates to Skype, I was able to use high quality external mics connected to the Lightning port (for example, IK Multimedia iRig HD or iRig Mic HD). This made for much better sound than headphones or the speakerphone. No more. Now those devices are ignored in Skype, even though every other app recognizes them! Time to find a replacement for Skype.
ChemRock147's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/6/18 4:47 AM
Skype never wants to work. I can never send messages. Or receive calls without it messing up my phone. When is Microsoft actually gonna fix this s***** thing they call an app.
That gameguy's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/6/18 4:36 AM
I mean i get to call my father in Afghanistan, but to do that i needed to give over all of my personal information. If you want to even call someone you need to give them DOB, location, all your phone contacts, email address , and your phone number. Maybe that’s okay for others but if i am able to give them all of this redundant information (to store and sell to the highest bidder and then market me more ads) i would’ve just called, texted, emailed, or walked to the persons house.

I speak no engle a's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/6/18 4:01 AM
I had Skype a while back when you didn’t need to log in with Microsoft. I’m a teenager with family all over the world who uses his app to all call each other, since I had to redownload the app so I could be involved in theses calls again, it says I now need Microsoft. What exactly am I supposed to do?????? Because while they are all video chatting, I’m missing out on my baby cousins first day of school, and certain conversations.
Dana Ervin's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/6/18 2:50 AM
I have been involved in a long-distance relationship for nearly two years now, and in the beginning Skype was a saving grace. However, throughout my relationship, Skype has become more and more of a nuisance with their new features and how they push them. I wish they would stop trying to be Snapchat with their new “Highlights” feature. If I wanted to use Snapchat or Instagram like features- I would use Snapchat or Instagram. My partner and I have recently switched to Discord. Not only can we text, voice call, and video call; but we have organized our own server with different channels to discuss/post our schedules and videos/photos of vacations we have taken together. Due to the level of organization we can achieve with Discord, we will possibly never switch back to Skype.

I found myself fumbling around in this most recent version of Skype. The simple act of making the same call to family in England suddenly became quite tedious. All we do is talk, no video, no text. I prefer simplicity.
Bobby Summerfield's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/5/18 6:50 PM
So many design flaws,: 1: unable to engage speaker unless the a call is connect. 2: No warning to countdown of running out of credit, Only get to add $4.99 credit per time. Unable to add credit within the application. Dial pad not obvious already available. Icon layout and design needs to be made clearer & cleaner and Modern. On an iPhone 6 Plus, application is really slow and unresponsive. But other equivalent apps are snappy. This app has gone downhill since Microsoft took it over in my humble opinion.
copyeverythingbutmakeannoying's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/5/18 5:00 PM
Skype keeps updating and getting more annoying. There are nice features that should stay like screen sharing and video call but now I can’t move my video unless I want it to take up half the screen. I screen shot my screen more time because the button just randomly clicks in the way when you are trying to call. Emojis and s***** reactions are always in the way. We are seeing so many complaints that they are trying to shove emojis and everything in our faces but truth is it’s just driving your customers away. I have been using this app for 4 years as I am in a long distance relationship and honestly that’s going to change very soon.

me and my bestfriend love to facetime but she doesn’t have an iphone so i had to download skype and lemme tell you!! THIS APP IS SO HORRIBLE!! some nights it works and some nights it doesn’t. the audio would drop and she would go mute and i couldn’t hear her or she couldn’t hear me, tonight it wasn’t even letting her call me or it would say “connecting” and never work. i used to love skype but now it’s just horrible and we use google duo. we were using skype just for the overnight calls and google duo for the daily calls, but now we can’t even do that! this app is not reliable and i would not suggest using it!! no matter where i am how good the wifi is, etc skype doesn’t work. skype fix your s*** or go back to just normal video calls because all the extra ness is slowing it down. yeah me and my bsf could just see eachother in person but you can’t do that everyday. we have personal lives at we facetime mostly at night and go to sleep on the phone that’s just how close we are.

Chou_Girl's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/31/18 2:53 PM
Wow. Forced to "update" from Skype app that mostly worked great and looked elegant (adult) to an abomination that looks like an app for little children. Embarrassed to open it. Why did you remove the status feature? Have you also forgotten much of your user base is an adult and even business demographic? How may I revert back to the last version? Honestly, this new update version is such a disaster, we are seeking another program for our communications. What a shame to ruin Skype, and greater upset that you forced it upon us. 5 stars if the plan was to totally ruin a longstanding decent program.
FluffehCat's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/31/18 12:17 AM
Where did the highlights go? They’re gone! Please bring them back. I don’t use them often but I do miss them. I really enjoyed how unlike Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram, the highlights feature wasn’t that big. But please don’t make it invisible :(
anvarjam's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/31/18 11:29 AM
This version is way better than the previous one. It’s much organized. Thanks for removing the camera button at the center. One problem i am having is with the international codes. I am using Skype in India to call USA numbers but Skype automatically appends my country code in front of USA numbers. That’s sad. It’s still didn’t resolve on this version too. One more thing I would wish to be improved is the speed of searching contacts. It takes more than 5 seconds and most of the apps they do it like instantly.

A Nashville Cat's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/30/18 1:25 AM
My biggest upset is this. I use the chat feature 90% of the time and I am using multiple windows. WHEN I CUT AND PASTE FROM ONE WINDOW TO THE OTHER, it takes all of the spacing out instead of keeping it in the same, separated format. Sentences get schmooshed together and it doesn’t keep each of the chatter’s names separate so it’s all one, big line of text. I have to spend time separating it all out and adding in all of the spacing and returns when I paste it in the new page. Again, if you’re in an important, fast flowing conversation, it slows you down for minutes at a time, making it right. I LOVE that it has spellcheck and a wide array of gifs. What I don’t like is that the gifs can take forever to load into the gallery. Disturbs the flow of a lightening fast chat. Also, can you please add the time of day it is for each person? It had it in their profile before and it would only take a few seconds to look. If you’re arranging a conference call, you have to know that fast. That’s what I need most from Skype. Hi speed and minimal slowdowns. Been happy with it for years though. Can we have it encrypted again, too? Thank you!

I think Skype has improved so much in the past years and is doing very good for itself right now. However, I am having some issues with the new update. I can not view or post highlights anymore since there is no tab after the new update. I additionally cannot see the new usernames friends of mine update on the app, it just stays the same or deletes entirely. If there is anyway I could get some help with this, that would be great. Keep up the great work!
Ecuador Malacatos's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/3/18 7:49 PM
I have used Skype for 15 years and it is great. But since Microsoft took over it has gone downhill. It won’t let me add a phone number contact. It doesn’t store my recent calls. Why didn’t they just leave it alone? I pay for a Skype number but now I don’t get texts on that number. I used to be able to do that. Very disappointing. Shame on you Microsoft for making the product worse!! The Skype app is terrible.

Eso es todo lo que no me gusta de Skype y que deberian mejorar cuanto antes. Gracias.

In the updated version, trying to place a call to a regular phone from the contact list is extremely cumbersome. And even if I was able to place a few, trying to use different numbers for the same contact was almost impossible (i.e. mobile and then home). The older version made it very easy to place a Skype call or a regular phone call.

The need to keep changing the Interface of the Skype app again and again is an obvious sign of poor interface design; but the Skype app’s worst feature is it’s truly obnoxious sound effects. I would give the app one star if it weren’t for the fact that Skype allows users to call any telephone anywhere in the world for a few cents a minute. This feature is why I keep using Skype. Otherwise, WhatsApp is a much better VOIP client.

I use Skype EVERYDAY - been using it for last 5+ years now & this update is terrible. I'm not complaining of graphics or what features it has & don't have anymore but the fact that I can't call my bf who doesn't have an iPhone, because he doesn't have this update. It tells me that his device doesn't support calls from mine because of this update. Being that he is overseas, this is the only way for us to communicate and now we can't. Please fix this issue. *** update: app has updated several times since I wrote this original review and still can't call my bf because his Amazon fire phone doesn't have this update. Please fix this issue!!! Shouldn't matter what device I'm calling to - should be able to call if they have Skype. 😡 ***update 8/25/2018 I wrote this original review over a year ago and my bf and I can now call each other however if I open anything else on my phone while on Skype call, it suddenly puts the Skype call on hold and I can’t always get it off hold. It never did this before and don’t know why it’s doing it now. I can understand if I get another call that it does this, but not with opening a weather app or something like that. I agree with other reviewer who said they need to focus on making calls and videos of calls better and not all these emoji and other features. I don’t use all these other features of Skype other than calling and video calling. Also, having trouble with call connecting a lot - if other person has Skype open on their phone or computer and has great internet connection, I’m still having trouble connecting and Skype has yet to make Skype work on Amazon Fire phones. My bf has to download an APK Skype file and it’s not working properly. Please fix this.

Notification controls do not work. I have in-app and phone notification settings for skype OFF. Even so, calls push through. The only help for this is “Do not disturb” set and app completely closed out (not just minimized). “Do not disturb” also does not work properly. Even with phone on vibrate, if the app is open calls will come through and ring aLOUD. Which is in complete contradiction of the function.
Sifu Emir's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/24/18 7:33 AM
Dear Microsoft, could you please change Skype’s user interface to look like WhatsApp, iMessage and FaceTime? I can see that you really tried to make it better but unfortunately I don’t see full success in it. You know how WhatsApp is popular and successful but we know that also nobody can beat some of Skype’s features. So imagine if we had an interface which messaging looked like WhatsApp, app integration like iMessage and calling people like FaceTime’s interface. These would make Skype the best of the best really..! Hint: just copy WhatsApp, iMessage and FaceTime 🙏

cohete loco's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/23/18 7:55 PM
Before there was FaceTime and WhatsApp and Facebook messenger and Snapchat video calls, there was hoolichat. And before that, there was Skype. Skype is now my go to messaging platform at work, since I work with so many different companies. For video, it’s nice. For audio, it’s nice. Chat is a different story. It keeps evolving and they keep adding new stuff. That’s the good news. Unfortunately the stuff they are adding is weird. And it’s 2018, and you can’t paste anything into a chat on iOS. You can send an image if it’s on your camera roll, but forget about using the Bitmoji keyboard (or any other that requires you to copy/paste. The other issue - both on the Mac and iOS versions- is sorting of conversations. It makes no sense. I don’t know why it was changed for this new revamped Skype - and maybe I’ll get used to it, but it’s counterintuitive.
annoyed at skype's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/23/18 5:42 AM
My friends and I switched to Skype for our group chat so we could do big video chats together. For WEEKS, it has been doing a thing (mostly to me, but to some other people as well) where it randomly kicks you off the video chat and doesn’t let you talk. Once you get kicked off once, it kicks you off 3 seconds after you join again. And again after that. I contacted the Skype customer service and tried everything they told me, but it still doesn’t work. I even created a new Skype account! PLEASE fix this skype, my friends who use this app with me don’t live very close to me and I never get to see them except on video chats, and even your app glitch is making it so that doesn’t work.

CreditGeek's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/23/18 12:09 PM
I have been on Skype since 2002. For sixteen years, this has been my favorite app as it has kept up with the improvements in technology. Over the past years, I have been on international trips and Skype has kept me connected to my family and relatives in 3 different countries. The quality of calls has improved a lot over the years, too - sparing me from huge amounts of phone bills. However, I believe that the key is to have a decent internet connection. I am really impressed that is now being used widely both for personal and business communications. I have had lots of job interviews through call conferences. Love the emojis as they also keep up with the times, i.e., diversity. I can actually choose the color of the skin of the clapping hands or see different options on couples. I can go on for the many ways Skype has been an essential part of my life through the years - forever loyal to you! Thanks, Skype 👏🏼🙌🏼 🍾.
zinx230's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/23/18 10:03 PM
Skype is really great because you can share screens, call and text. There are also a bunch or super cool features! But sometimes it starts glitching or you cant hear the other side,etc. But this doesn't happen a-lot. I would certainly recommend it.
idontcareabouthavinganickname's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/22/18 9:37 PM
I’ve used Skype for over a decade and have loved it. I’ve mostly used the desktop version but have been using the mobile app for about 3-4 years. The pervious version worked great but ever since this upgrade it’s been awful. This is, hands down, the worst app I’ve ever used. The menus are confusing, the user interface is horrendous, the graphics are garish, and trying to actually do what you want to do is nearly impossible. Unless they change this app, don’t even bother downloading it. Just use the desktop version and save yourself the headache now.
chrisbeaman's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/22/18 7:51 PM
I hate that I have to use Skype. Constantly freezes, connection drops, video stops working, audio stops working, the whole Skype username situation is confusing...if you don’t absolutely have to use Skype, I’d recommend Hangouts or WhatsApp or some alternative.

Whenever I initiate a call from my home in Costa Rica, if they aren’t an Apple customer I use Skype. Coordinating medical appointments in States has been a breeze with Skype. Has always worked when I needed it. Has proven to be more reliable than my toll free service from US and Canada. Keep up the good work. Bob Furlong

I live in Europe most of the year and my son is in school in the USA. He has a subscription for Austria and I have a subscription for USA. Our phone bills have gone from several hundred a month to approx $16.00 a month for both subscriptions. SKYPE is FANTASTIC! We can use the app on our phones, tablets and computers, so we have many ways to connect, with or without video.
d-bass's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/21/18 9:34 AM
I have used Skype for years, especially when traveling. It’s interface and audio quality for calls has improved. For my needs, this is great. The times I have had to use video over the past couple of years have not been as successful - freezes and sometimes dropped connections. But if your expectations are reasonable, Skype is a great solution for a low cost way to communicate over long distances.

I’ve been using Skype for over 15 years, and the UX/UI of the desktop app has diminished. I hear this from almost everyone I know that uses it. The mobile app has improved, adding a tremendous amount of functionality - screen sharing, etc. Just hope it doesn’t go the way of the desktop one.

The phone call feature doesn’t work. Voice kept dropping out. When voice did come through, there was a massive delay. Totally unusable. Skype refuses to refund my money.
carosilk's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/20/18 8:29 PM
Pros: Calls to Europe less expensive. Can even use my iPad to call. Cons: Phone calls lost if internet connection is not strong. Echos. Voices in background. Cannot get the monthly rate after having tried many times. Would be less expensive for me. 4 hours not enough if your family likes to talk for hours. Overall: Would give it 5 stars if my connections were better.

Victorya Casanova's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/17/18 4:12 AM
Let me tell you why the new skype is terrible, integrated calls. What does that mean? It forces you to use the native iphone call functions but not as swiftly which means you cant lock your phone when you are on a call , if you left your phone on the table everyone can see you are on a call, cant listen to whatsapp voice messages, anything during a call... I for one am a multitasker and up until now integrated calls were optional now it doesnt have the option to turn it off...

Anon in Cyan's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/14/18 7:21 AM
I’ve been a long time Skype user. And honestly, its great! I’ve been able to keep in touch with my friend after the social media site we used to frequent shut down. This app has everything we need: a call session with the option to turn on the camera, ability to send pictures and chat, and the ability to quote chat bubbles to make fun of each other’s typos! However, there are a few issues that really annoy my friend and I. For one, sometimes notifications won’t send! I hope anyone can see why this is super infuriating (and really, it was so infuriating that it’s the reason why I’m writing this review). Second, the emojis are too much. I really dislike them and wish there was a proper way to completely shut them off. Third of all, while this might be a nit pick, a lot of the features are a bit too much. There’s a lot of things in this app that are nice and all.. but is it really necessary? Like emojis, bots, etc. Overall, I like this app, but there are a few things I want fixed. (Also, my friend noticed that this app would sometimes lag, freeze, and crash? I’ve experienced this too, and if it’s the app’s issue, then please fix this. If this is an issue with having many things loaded on our devices, then ignore this)
angry white mom 67's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/14/18 7:12 AM
Love Skype. Works pretty alright for long distance relationships. However — I HATE the forced integrated calling we got stuck with a few updates ago. Integrated calling has s***** from the beginning too because as soon as it was introduced, I turned it off. Apparently I’m then punished with having any audio or video that plays in another app put my call on a permanent hold until I restart the app. Still, yhat was at least better than integrated calling itself. Which now I can’t even turn off. iPhone 6s user

The iPhone version of the app crashes constantly and if you don’t log in too often, it will try to update calls and conversations when you do, so it will take you several tries to get it going. Overall, service is good when you get it to work but features of the old app have disappeared leaving you with new confusing ones. It’s not the best but everybody uses. So I’m stuck with it.

The regular WiFi calling with satellite phones is horrible. I don’t want 2 phone numbers. This app is cheap and works very good. A slight delay, but people seem okay with it. At least they can hear us! I like pay per minute and have encouraged all my friends to add the app to their phone so we can talk free. Thank you so much for this service.

RamblinSam's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/12/18 8:37 PM
In its persistent effort to fix what’s not broke and break what works fine, it seems the brain wizards at Skype created an iOS app that no longer allows touch tone interface - like the interface you need when calling your bank or whatever from overseas. I still award two stars because I’m always amazed that we can call any number on earth from anywhere on earth and that’s no small accomplishment. Just hope that you’re not attempting to reach anyone important. Like your bank. When your ATM card stops working in a foreign country. Strangely enough it still works on the desktop app. I hope they fix this major freaking bug ASAP.

Again you update and don’t even listen to your customers concerns. The forced intergraded calling is not good for business. If it’s still not addressed by the next update I can no longer use the app. For personal reasons, I cannot have my calls show on my iPhone calling list, therefore I’ve been unable to call anyone due to it always showing up on my phone. This is a problem that is being addressed multiple times. Please address it and fix it. I don’t want to let go of this app, but if our concerns are not addressed I have no choice but to.

I hate everything about the new Skype especially the new layout. Why they want to make this another social media platform is beyond me but it is absolutely ridiculous. After that whole thing I only used mobile Skype to get notifications while I used Skype classic on my computer. But now They are shutting down Skype classic for no apparent logical reason and are trying to force us to update. I knew Skype was getting bad but I didn’t think it would go as far as to force their users to update or leave their platform. I and almost all of the people I know and talk to, are now moving to other things such as discord. At least it gives a c*** about what it’s customers want.

TheWildOne94's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/1/18 3:25 PM
The more I use Skype Mobile the more I hate it, with each new update it gets worse and worse. So far Skype Classic for PC is great though I hear they will be getting rid of that and replacing it with this trash they call a platform. If that truly is the case, after many years of using Skype daily, I will be cutting my ties with Skype all together. My fiancé updated his desktop to the new Skype and it’s nothing but huge problems every day. I don’t know why we bother giving feed back, Skype clearly doesn’t care about what the users want at all. You don’t even deserve the one star I’m giving you. The Skype we knew and loved is long dead and will never return.
Keaton Butler's Review of SkypeReviewed on 8/1/18 2:17 PM
Thanks for the free video chat app! 🙏 When the call first connects it always takes a few seconds longer than I think it is going to get connected with the speaker on. I like all the fun features with emojis and bing and etc. If internet is shaky the call quality goes way down. But overall an amazing free app for video chat. Thanks!

yukkiara's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/9/18 9:07 PM
I’ve been using Skype for some years now and this problem only started occurring last month, sometimes I’ll send a message and close an app, and I’ll open the app to see if I’ve gotten a reply yet only to realize the message didn’t even send?? And I’ll wonder why I haven’t gotten any messages from my friend so I’ll check up on her only for a whole conversation to load when I open the app, but I hadn’t received a single notification :/ pls fix thx
Jkche's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/9/18 7:28 AM
Great video quality, even when the “weak network connection” warning is up. Audio quality doesn’t drop, it just gets choppy if the network connection is bad. The animated emojis and chat integrations are cool. The recommendations for responses in the chat are quite good, and are fuller phrases than most apps.

BinoWasHere's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/9/18 1:20 AM
I’ve used skype off and on for project calls with people in other countries. I like that I don't have to use a phone number to setup an account. I dont like how the current language translation works in chat mode. The separate bot translator is very confusing and cumbersome to use. Why can’t I simply be in a chat with someone and just select their name and choose the language to translate. Keep it simple? Also it would be nice if translator could be integrated in skype chat.

I’m in the US and voice calls from Europe and the Middle East are better than expected. Text autocorrect isn’t the best and I have a hard time sending more than one pic at a time before the app crashes. Also, my app can not handle sending any video clips of any size, even tiny ones so I don’t even bother. I use it mostly for voice then and thus happy with it.
Vyachezz's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/8/18 6:13 PM
This is absolutely unreliable and disappointing last time especially after major updates and design. Constant bags just not able to dial-in. You guys need much more effort to make it close to good not even perfect one. It is again disappointing because I relied on this app to contact my relatives now I have to research which apps for desktop and mobile I can have instead of this. Now a little bit details: 1) extremely horrible and difficult to find contacts which I want to dial-in from Miami telephone book; 2) each time I need to go to settings to check what’s the problem I have to spend a lot of time; 3) when dialing in it just says that failed to make a call and that’s it - simply does not work at all!!!!!

it takes 50 tries just to get the app to load up properly to make a call. and even when you finally do, it eventually just kicks you out of the call and logs you out completely. tapping anything on the app usually causes it to freeze, g** help you if you want to send a message. microsoft doesnt know how to make working programs
KaiyaBunny's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/7/18 5:38 PM
Skype is a great app bit sometimes has bugs. Usually are fairly quick in fixing it. However the feature I want back added the most is the one that lets you go back into your history. I /hate/ that after a while I stop being able to search previous messages and basically lose them. PLEASE FIX THIS. And everytime I go try to find a way to keep it I can’t find what button I’m looking for. Where is privacy settings that lets me keep my history forever? This was a great feature and I want it back.

Downloaded this so my son could screen chat with his nanna. I have apple, she has android. The controls are counter intuitive, the interface is a mess and it’s filled with useless functions. We were never able to get it to work properly. Hours were spent trying to connect. I would camera call her and her end would never ring but would register the missed call. On her phone, my name wouldn’t even appear in her contact list. Complete crap. I used Skype on laptops in previous years without issue but trying to connect using portable device was an exercise in futility.

WingF's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/7/18 10:30 PM
In past versions of the Skype app there was an option to turn off “integrated calling“ so that your Skype calls didn’t get mixed in with your regular iPhone calls. They have completely removed that option with the latest version of Skype. All of your Skype calls and voicemails get integrated with the regular calls and voicemails on your iPhone, whether you like it or not. This is completely unacceptable and in my opinion very shady. I am deleting Skype from my phone as of today.
zabole's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/6/18 9:33 PM
I hope Microsoft to start test the products before they just publish it. I only keep Skype now because one of my friends still use it. However, when I write a message I don’t see what I’m writing (the keyboard hide what I’m writing so I don’t see it) It’s good idea to take Apple reviews app examples. When I write the review it is smart enough to let me see what I’m writing and I can correct it it. With your app I don’t see what I’m writing which Took forever fo me to write single message. Please have a test teams to test Microsoft products before they just publish it.

Mimmilala's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/6/18 4:02 PM
I’ve used Skype for a long time, ever since MSN was bought by Microsoft and I’ve had the app for as long as I’ve had a smartphone. Skype app has always been buggy. You’d expect seamless connections across all platforms but that has not always been the case and it gets infuriating when I’m trying to have a conversation with someone but they can’t hear me, etc. As these problems are solved, new ones arise. I get it, you can’t have a perfect app, so I continue to deal as I mainly use this to communicate in my LDR. However, with the latest updates for iPhone and for Skype, the horrible integrated calling feature is now NOT optional. You can’t turn it off and calls are routed through the iPhone calling system. This disables me from using my other apps if I’m in a non-WiFi area. Additionally, when I hang up my Skype calls through the iPhone calling screen, it causes the entire iPhone to freeze and I can’t do anything until it corrects itself by restarting. It’s ridiculous. Bring back the option to turn off integrated calling please. For reference, I have the iPhone 8.

stepheno3's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/6/18 1:59 PM
One thing I will say that you all need to bring back, and this is not only for Skype for iPhone, this Skype everywhere. When you are in someone’s profile, and you look at their location, a big mistake that y’all made, was taking out the time where Syd person is. Because I would not want to call somebody in Australia, or England, and it be 3 AM. Another thing is, what I think you need to bring back, is the sign and sound, and sign out sound with Skype. And also, on the Mac, and window side, get rid of the Skype preview. And one last thing, on the backside, make it to where users like myself that are using voiceover, can create hot keys, for such purposes as, answering a call, or different things like that. And on a last note, try to improve the sound quality of your calls! And get rid of all the static in the background! And make it like it was in Skype 3.8 for windows all across the board. And also, one last thing, is I would really like to see regular Skype names come back, where you can create a Skype username.

Since MS bought Skype the service has gone down hill! I’m a tech support agent for a small computer company and Skype is something I get calls about on a daily basis. It makes my users crazy that it just doesn’t ever work right. There has been a bug that won’t let a Linux computer logged in via web browser to connect properly (no video only audio) if the recipient of the call is using a phone or desktop app. The problem has been going on for weeks. You can do better MS!
distediste's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/4/18 10:35 PM
I used skype almost 13 years. Last couple of years it started to be very difficult to use. When you open a new account it wants your microsoft account if you don’t have a microsoft account you can not open an account. Also now Skype wants all of your phone contacts to sync with your skype account which is not necessary. I do not want all my contacts in my skype account anyways. It was really easy to use before but now it is not easy. When you want to close your account they are not closing it immediately!! I have to wait 60 days???!! Really?? For what reason?? Why!?? What happens to my contacts there in 60 days? I really am tired from the internet world long time ago because we have no privacy anymore but skype was the last thing that I trusted but not anymore. I am closing my account that I am using it for years like FaceBook. I am tired! I experienced lots of big businesses disappear in years. I think in the future the next will be skype... Sad very sad!!

wisebabo's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/31/18 9:27 AM
I gave this two stars not one because, yes, it did allow me to make my call. But why is the user interface (still) so clunky? Since I hadn’t imported my contacts into this (and, because of its problems am unlikely to) I had to try to copy them paste the number. That only took me a few steps. Then to actually call the number took a few more. I compare this to other dialing apps where you copy, paste and dial. Are so many steps really necessary for such a basic and presumably often used function?

Can't delete chats or calls (at least the usual swipe left/right or . or . . where's the 3-dot option? Can't easily sign out (menu, scroll all the way to the bottom, verify that you really want to). Status can't be changed from the same avatar that's already on the screen. Contact list too long, too much white space. I don't need the avatar. Would like 2nd line and control Contact spacing. Apple Phone > Recent doesn't correctly parse Country codes (our Swiss/Austrian codes come up +1 4....... Otherwise, great call and video quality.

I love so much about this new Skype. I love that they constantly make needed updates and upgrades. The improvements have gotten better and better. Thanks for listening. My major problem though is with sending videos. It takes forever to send videos that are even 20 seconds long and even after they send often they take forever to play and most of the time my recipients can’t even play them. They won’t load. I hope you look into this. With good video features I’d say this is a 4+ stars app.

Running on an iPhone 6 with everything up to date this app is a joke. When on a call, as soon as you go to text and return to the call you can no longer see your video call.

Agent of Influence's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/27/18 5:34 PM
Skype before it was owned by Microsoft was simple to use. Now I have a team of people search extensively and nobody can find basic functions (eg how to add information such as multiple numbers inside a contact). The intuitive would be to click on the contact circles and they would open up, but that would be too obvious for the pin heads at MS. Microsoft is in the business of obtaining or stealing (think Word Perfect and all the Utah software firms) software from other companies and then making their product utterly worthless, thus destroying both the startup and their software!

Skype has been great so far, But group calling is an issue. If you call everyone at once, People may be busy and have disturbances. Yes, some people may be available at that certain time, But others can be busy. In a group chat we should be able to have the option to only call one person in the chat and not EVERYONE as well. That involves complications with people, And it can disturb someone who might be at an event and get a random call from a group chat. There’s no way to mute calls on Skype. The calls just come up like normal calls on iPhone. PLEASE fix this!!

Anotaze's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/26/18 5:58 AM
My boyfriend and I are long distance and for over a year now we have used Skype to call every day. Skype used to be perfect and we had no issues in call. Sometimes there would be quality drops in the video but that was just due to internet connection. We could also hear the background noise and it was very loud and amplified it was hard to call with that. Now when we call for the past 3 months or so after a major update skype has never worked. This app has become so horrible for us. One of our ends will go mute and the audio won’t work during some calls and I can’t even switch my camera anymore or go out of the app because my side of the video will go black. He can still see me but I can’t see myself and other times his video will go off if I go into our chats and come back. Background noise is still a huge issue and is just as bad as it was a year ago. I have become so frustrated with this app due to its recent behavior and I’ve tried to put up with it but it bothers me so much. It has made our calls so unpleasant and I am highly dissatisfied and we will both be moving to discord to call from now on.

I’ve never done an appstore review before. So its really unusual for an app to be so good it makes me go the extra mile to write a review. But Skype deserves all the praise. I got USD 5 in credit and while I don’t use it all the time, the times I do have to make an international call once or twice a month, it has been phenomenal. The prices are very low, the call quality is like the person is in the next room and the user interface is so smooth (no ads!!!!). I thought skype as an app was dying but I feel like you guys have a lot of potential. Good luck!!
kelvins's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/26/18 10:03 PM
This new UI is cluttered and awful. No one wants to use Skype as a social media platform yet it's being forced upon users as a prominent part of the interface. Phone integration is not working correctly. Not all contacts appear when searching so I'm forced to copy and paste. It's glitchy and barely useable now but it used to be fantastic. Please fix all the glitches instead of focusing on useless features nobody wants!!!

Joeybagodonuts1983's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/25/18 7:36 PM
You are not listening to user feedback at all. Without the users asking for it, you removed the ability to turn off the integrated calling feature. For the several weeks the users have sent many negative reviews calling for this change to be reversed and you have ignored it. Will you address this or not?

Bluebreezer's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/25/18 5:56 PM
So what happened to my nearly $10 in Skype credit, because the account had auto-pay topped up just prior to this buyout? I don't want a Microsoft account. I don't want to keep paying for service that doesn't work well. Where is my money? Am I supposed to create an account and HOPE to see my credit waiting for me so I can HOPE to get a refund before I delete the account and app? Answers, please.

Whenever I call my boyfriend just to see him, he can’t see me at all. No matter how many times I spam the camera button on my phone it just simply won’t work. I’ll recall him multiple times and turn on my camera a bunch of times. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t. I’ve logged out of Skype and even went out of my way to uninstall it and reinstall it. Please fix this...

Suzy. FL's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/23/18 7:24 AM
I have been using Skype for 9 years now. They pioneered video chat in my book! My husband goes back and forth to Europe since we were dating, it great! Video chatting with a clear picture at no charge. The only time I’ve had a problem with the video or sound, is when one of us is in an area with a poor internet connection. One year while I was in Europe, I even purchased a phone number thru Skype, for like $8 a month (vrs 20 cents a min with most cell providers). That came with unlimited calls!!! 👍❤️🇱🇻🇺🇸

My messages would not go through, despite closing the app, rebooting my phone, and having friends try to send messages through to me. I decided to delete the app and reinstall it, but now the app won’t even let me in, it just loads forever.
Joeycpe's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/22/18 5:59 PM
You wouldn’t expect an app developer to remove highly used features but looks like Microsoft is at it again. Several features are no longer available with most recent releases of Skype. A good example is the ability to turn off integrated calling. I don’t want Skype integrated into my phone. When i want to use Skype I’ll launch the app and use it. Don’t ring my phone. Microsoft needs to fix this ASAP.
Hxjdbdjdbdjsmdj's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/22/18 3:06 AM
I use this app to communicate with my girlfriend, since she doesn’t have FaceTime. However, the video and sound quality sometimes just sh*ts on itself, and if I’m trying to message while I’m a video call: the words are behind what I’m typing by at least 5 words, the cursor will jump back 4 characters, making me type a whole new word in the middle of the previous, or I can’t see what I’m typing at all. Please, for the love of all that is good and holy, fix these nasty problems that you have instead of introducing new emojis to fit whatever the newest internet fad is. Technology is supposed to help make things easy and stress free, not make you want to rip your hair out.

And I want to be able to go into our conversation and look up key words to be able to remember all those texts we have but instead I spend HOURS scrolling and I haven’t even gone into last 4 months of our texts. It’s a great app all together it just has some bugs that they need to work on. I’ll give it another review when and if they update the app but yeah it’s a great app

Bleecker44's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/2/18 8:14 AM
Like most everything else Microsoft touches they damaged Skype. As an occasional user it is nearly impossible to use Skype as they make you answer tons of questions to get into the app, questions you can’t answer easily if you are an occasional user. Recommendation is to not keep a balance of money on the account and just create new accounts.
Jasmineewe's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/2/18 7:16 PM
Been using this app for almost 3 years and now it’s not working. The video fades in and out and glitches my phone. I’ve reset my phone only to have the same issues. Downloaded and reinstalled multiple times with the same issue. If the person I was trying to talk to had an iPhone we would be using FaceTime. But they don’t. After every call I leave a rating. And the issue has still not been fixed.

I hate apps that wipe everything you've composed in a text window when you briefly switch to another app to check on something, then return. For a messaging app, that's just plain stupid.
Ronery084's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/19/18 7:15 PM
My only complaint I have is when you’re using the camera to swap camera from the back then to the front camera—the image, the box that shows your face, stays black. Hanging up the call and re calling that person does not fix the issue.

I am a vocal coach and I've been teaching over a Skype connection to Europe and the USA for a little over a year now, but boy oh boy this new Skype feature enables me to practically work in realtime, creating piano scales within the 2-minute time limit and transmitting them within the chat window to my pupils who then play them back to work with me on the call. An absolutely AMAZING app! Voice coaching on Skype has never been easier. And the connection is the best it's ever been on Skype. I'm over the moon with excitement. This app makes my work all the more easy and great fun. I love it!

FunkyCrumble's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/16/18 3:44 PM
I’ve always found skype’s voip quality above all others, and this still holds. But... the (now notorious) app redesign really made it unusable. Subsequent updates have made things better (removing snapchat-like gunk), but seem half-hearted, keeping useless features like “highlights” and a “camera” shortcut smack in the middle of the bottom menu (what for?). Would love to see the app going back to a pure voice/video communication focus and abandoning its attempts at becoming a social network.
Useless Pulse's Review of SkypeReviewed on 7/16/18 2:42 PM
I’ve used Skype for years, both in my pc and iPhone/iPad. Recently it “updated” itself in my iPad and changed the previous version of the app, screen etc. It deleted my frequent contacts list which I always used and only had to tap to make a video call. Stays Online even if you get off the app. Can’t find how to delete call history. Not user friendly. The Help tab doesn’t help.

Also notifications aren’t showing up. Please fix. It’s a nuisance.
