Skype has an exceptionally clean user interface. Navigating the application is intuitive, and the huge range of features and functionalities coexist seamlessly. Within a video call, users can blur or unblur their background, which is great for when we're on the move or video conferencing from home.


The status keeps on auto changing, For example if I keep it as Do not Disturb it will auto change to Active. This kills my personal time when I donot wish to receive any calls or msgs. It will be great if this is fixed. FYI I donot use any desktop version at same time neither i face this issue on desktop or web. Its annoying that this issue is stil ongoing even after years of first reported.


I recently bought skype credit, but no credit was given to me despite the fact that the payment was successful. (I did eventually get the skype credit after waiting for a day or so.) Hence, I tried contacting the support. I was initially on position 18 in the queue, and ten minutes later I was on position 1. Yet, after additional 20 minutes I still wasn't able to talk to the support team...


Update Feb 2023: MS fixed the top bar issue from Dec. Continues to be a joke. Out-of-app chat bubbles were introduced. They cover your apps and open super slow. Click on them, Skype starts misbehaving (can't open chats anymore in the app, can't share media). You can't make this stuff up. Update June 2022: Chat messages often load super slow, emoticon popup loads slowly too. Original post: Keeps changing my online status. People have been reporting this for years. Still exists in 2023.


Skype just changed our view during Skype calls that I do not like and there is no way to change it now. We used to just have a small thumbnail of our own image with the people we are calling larger. Now our image is large and the people we want to see are much smaller. I do not like it and cannot find any way to change the view, even in Settings. Very frustrating!


Dear Skype thank you for giving us good quality audio and video call. So I'm staying in Dubai I'm facing one problem when I turn on data and I try to call friends and family that time we can't connect each other even we can't make a call but when I connect wifi then it's working smoothly. I don't know what's happening here kindly solve this issue please. Thanks and best regards


Good service, but yet another bug-infested app from Microsoft. The app has become so unreliable, buggy, unresponsive, loaded with useless features! They need to completely renovate this app and rewrite the codes, or release something better ffs!


The call quality is great both on the audio and visual side of things. The major problem is the fact that my device never rings when I receive a call. It's not an issue with the notifications, I've had the issue on multiple phones and platforms, and I know many users with the same problem. The app is kinda useless if you never know when someone is calling unless they text you first.


I used to use Skype all the time and it worked great! The quality on the video and recording is good. But I got signed out, I signed back in but now it can't do anything. It freezes and want do ANYTHING! I can't load contacts or try and text just a screen showing my profile and then not really anything other than the Skype platform and stuff. I would really like this problem fixed, I'm so sad I can't use this anymore because it doesn't work. PLEASE fix this!!


It's becoming less usable all the time. Now, in addition to no notifications and a pop-up that crashes every time I try to open a new message if I don't close it in between (which means it then takes a good while to restart), it's struggling to move out of media-related screens. When sharing media from another app, or when viewing media in a chat, it's broken.


Don't use this for business. It doesn't ring most of the time and I lost customers because of it. It also forwards calls to voicemail instead of answering when it does ring... doesn't hang up when you end a call, then it causes audio problems unless you exit the app. Can't make calls while connected to ѴРИ. Can't make calls when I'm not...Get telemarketers calling all the time... And best of all: notice how the dbags haven't even responded to try to help me? That's what you'll get. Go elsewhere.


I have groups of photos in previous conversations going back more than 1 year but when i go back to see them again only the first three displayed will show. The rest in the group will not swipe so I can see them. Actually it's happening with sets (groups) of photos that are sent even within a COUPLE OF DAYS!!!! .... So annoying!!! Also these icons are appearing above and below the photos of "phones, dial pads". I tried posting on a forum but no one knows.


This app is infuriatingly slow to use, and has got to be the absolute worst piece of programming ever completed. To say the app is slow would be the understatement of the century. I cannot believe after all these years, the skype app is still this bad. On startup it is not even usable for 30-60 seconds. Navigating through the menus is so painfully slow you don't know if the app is working on it or has crashed.


The app responds really slowly to almost every command. For example, it can take eight seconds to end the call after I've hit the red button. It takes about the same amount of time to respond to other commands, such as view recent calls. If software I wrote responded this slowly, I'd be fired. On the plus side, it gives me cheap calls overseas.


Skype has become increasingly clunky with time. The last straw for me is that it has now become impossible to buy credit for international land line calls without buying a subscription, which I'm not prepared to do. So I'm uninstalling it from my phone. It amazes me that Microsoft, which is an otherwise extremely competent software company, won't sort out this dreadful mess of an app. They are only accumulating reputational damage by continuing with it in this format.


This app is incredibly slow, bloated, and buggy. If I didn't have to use it I wouldn't, and I don't recommend that others do either. Its issues range from incredibly long response times, slow loading times, failing to register events, to calls not ending properly, app not surrendering control of devices, spontaneous crashes, and frequent logging out.


Finally uninstalling Skype. I've been using Skype for ages but for the past few months I'm not getting any incoming notifications be it calls or messages. My outgoing calls also go unanswered. Sick of it really. When I contacted Microsoft they bluntly blamed it on my Android version when Skype worked just as fine for so freaking long. Extremely rude. Thanks for the memories Microsoft but it's time to say goodbye. I'm just bitterly disappointed but it's just the way it is!


Issues with this last update!! I think a software engineer messed up a merge. When I set my status to do not disturb, it changes back to available almost immediately. It will NOT stay on DND. This has caused a lot of issues for me . Also, there is an issue with the stability of the display. So often, the display will just disappear. Then, I have to close the app and reopen for the display to return.


Needs lots of improvement. This aap can't handle too many messages sent or received at the same time. It takes lots of time to load the stuff inside the app. It's easier to use but what makes it really difficult and annoying is its loading time. Even if a person attends a call it will take a minute to get picked up and to use other features during the call , mute/unmute , video on/off etc. It will take few seconds for that. It makes me so irritating. Kindly resolve this else bye bye


Usually Skype is pretty good but the last two days it has been glitching out. Whenever I try and go into a different app the call will shrink into the small screen like it's supposed but then seconds later it will enlarge back to full screen again. No matter what I do it keeps doing this. I cannot go any other Apps on my phone while in a skype call which is very inconvenient and irritating. Please fix.
