  • I’ve used Skype for almost 2 years daily now

    My girlfriend and I are long distance so we call each other on the daily until she visits. I’ve used Skype over other apps and I have to say it has it’s ups and downs. Pros: You can expect calls to work perfectly as long as you both have good internet connections. Even when you internet slows down you can still see each other but the quality drops so you can load the video. As someone who’s used Skype for years I’ve noticed on newer phones that selecting things actually works unlike on slower phones where its stutters and takes time. Cons: They’re pushing too much with emojis and filters and stuff. Why do I have an option to take a picture in the middle of a Skype call? I can literally just turn on my camera and show the person. I have to press speaker all the time when I first make a call and I’m constantly pressing the camera button and waiting forever just to close it. After a call I’m literally asked every time how the quality was. Stop shoving things in my face please. I just wanna call, not see every “great feature you have”. Personally I don’t use 90% of the things Skype has to offer. I just call and turn on my camera. I wish it would focus on that and keep it simple. I don’t wanna have a 1/8 of my screen covered by something I don’t use. Please just make calling easier, it’s starting to make me think I should switch to Discord.
  • 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.

    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

    By Anotaze
    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.
  • 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!
  • Get rid of integrated calling!

    1
    By aaliyahds
    I’ve been using this app for years and despite numerous issues with this app, the new and current frustration that’s so irritating I must leave a review about it is the forced integrated calling. I do not want skype calls in my iphone 7’s phone log. I am beyond angered that if I so much as shut my screen off, the call hangs up because it’s functioning like a phone call rather than a skype call. I hate that it makes two apps open: the skype app and the phone app. Both are simultaneously running because of the integrated calling. And both act as separate apps! I can mute a call on the skype app, yet it’s unmuted on the phone app. I can take a call off speaker in one app, but it’s on speaker in the other??? PLEASE get rid of the forced integrated calling. Please do not force it onto your users. Leave it as an option as it used to be. I’m looking at other options than Skype since it’s rendering useless to me if the calls are integrated with my regular phone calls and are constantly getting hung up because of function mix ups. Fix this.
  • Reality is good!

    There are a lot of things going on around Skype. Some people say that they prefer old interface. Other’s remember old bugs. But reality is way better. Most of the old bugs are squashed. Skype actually works better than before these days. New looks... why they supposed to keep old interface for ages? Kid is a changing. New changes may not be to everyone’s taste, but they are not that bad if you give them a chance. Dark mode, reactions and stuff - they make Skype look modern and up to date. The only element for me that still struggles with intuitive use is ‘edit’. There’s a message in chat screen and there’s an edited version of it below. It does not make sense. If you edit something that is history - let it ‘live’ in history. Otherwise this new Skype is very good!
  • Very cumbersome accessing contacts

    1
    By Oga_Himself
    I don’t know what Microsoft is thinking but the current Skype app on iOS is the most useless one ever. It is an extremely difficult task finding a number on your contact list and using Skype to call that number. First, no matter how hard you try, your iPhone contacts simply don’t show on Skype, giving Skype access to your contacts doesn’t change this. If this is a phone calling app amongst other things, shouldn’t this be a basic feature? Secondly, even if you copy a number and paste in the dial pad, it automatically deletes the “+” sign (if you have saved contacts in international format). There is no way to edit the pasted number from dial pad to add the plus sign back so you always have to manually write down a number to call it using Skype!!! Please Microsoft, test your own products for ease of use. This is the most annoying Skype app ever. If people are buying Skype credit, is because they want to use the phone features; make it usable. PLEASE!
