  • used to be good but...

    i’ve used skype on and off for a few years. i think of skype as “that video call app” because originally it was just to call people as either a video call, audio call, and “chat”(because nobody really uses it) app. i feel like with all these new updates skype is using up valuable space both on said persons phone which instead they could be using on improving the quality of the apps features. not making new features and icons and lists and tips that nobody is going to use. second, regarding (video)calls, whenever i call someone skype has a tendency to randomly turn off and the screen goes completely black. this only happens when i use skype. i would like this to be fixed because it’s really bothersome and pisses me off all the time. on that note whenever i (video)call someone i always(and i mean ALWAYS)have to turn on the video or sometimes both the video and speaker even though it’s a video call and should automatically do that because it’s a video call. anyways i think originally this was a great app because it was so simple and easy to use, but now there is so much going on the real point isn’t there anymore and is constantly being altered. please fix the glitches i addresses in this and thanks.

    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.
  • Works Well With 50-mps Wifi

    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.

    Alright so I use Skype all the time and I love it because it has such a good quality of sound and it’s significantly better than the normal phone call. I love that it’s fairly easy to use and that you can change the colors of your background to match your personality behaves who doesn’t want to express themselves?!?! Anyways, I literally love this app but there’s only one problem. Why don’t I get any notifications while I’m on a call??? I’ve missed some very important messages and I’ve almost been grounded on many occasions due to the fact that I’m not getting the notifications while I’m in a call. And what’s even worse is that my boyfriend has been using Skype for WAAAYYYYY longer than I have and he’s had this problem the entire time he’s been using it but just never said anything about it. Alongside of myself, all of my friends have the same problem and was wondering if that minor problem could possibly be fixed because it would life a lot easier. Thank you very much.
  • Reliable over the yearssss

    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 👏🏼🙌🏼 🍾.
  • Skype has gotten worse

    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.

    Skype is amazing, I find very few things wrong with the app, though two problems I have involve the camera. When you take a picture in the dark, compared to your actual phone camera it turns out completely black where as with your proper phone camera app it is clear, and can make out what the picture is despite being in the dark, and if you try to turn on flash, the flash makes it almost blinding in the picture still making it impossible to see what you’re taking a picture of. Second is the filters. There use to be amazing filters (similar to snapchat) where you could have certain stickers that would be put around your face such as Snapchat’s filters. As someone who doesn’t use Snapchat I loved the idea and then one of the updates got rid of those and put in just color filters? Why do that if you can just use your normal camera to add simple filters like that? I would greatly appreciate if you would bring the filters back, and fix the camera if able
  • Keep the Skype Tradition

    I did not wish to criticize what was the very first ever communication system that I discovered saved me loads of money and had a voice quality better than my fixed line calls. It was also very simple to use. You open the app you click on contacts you click on the name of the person you want to call, video or not, and you hear that most unique calling sound and the contact answers and you do your thing. That’s how simple it was and it became a system to shout about. Somebody tried to fix perfection and now it has so many fixes that it has become imperfect. A step downwards. Now I am one million present sure that it is not the intention of the programmers or any Skype staff or member to see this downward motion in the eyes of so many of its faith clients. So my long time friends at Skype do some more listening to the many reviews that so many people already took much of their time and energy to write. Keep it simple, easy to use by the nerds and my grandparents.
  • Integrated Calling NOT Optional

    1
    By Mimmilala
    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.
  • I love Skype!!!!

    I would definitely recommend Skype to my friends and family and I already have some on the platform! I know you love to make money and all, but I think you should remove paying to call on mobile. I think it’s just stupid. But you can make groups and call with the groups, I honestly love it. The reason I’m writing this and taking time out of my day, That’s how much I love Skype! I get to share photos and I also found family members in the You may know section! If you haven’t downloaded Skype your wasting your time. (Well doing it kinda wastes your time but in a good way!) I really love Skype and the creators, thank you for all of your hard work on this application/App. I would write more but I’m out of ideas to talk about and I think this review is really long, again thank you for reading this, and all your hard work Skype. Bye!
