Love this app 5/5
Over the years there is a huge improvement. I keep money in my account which does not expire. I can call internationally wherever I am in the world and the call quality is usually very good to excellent.
3 words. Best. App. Ever. It’s amazing,I used this for nearly 2 years! Whoever gives the app 1 star is a meanie! Make more Skype apps,like Skype games,Skype art,it’s countless how many apps I want you to make your own version of. I can text my dad all morning if I can,(and yes, I actually did that once) sending him funny texts with emojis and emoticons! I wake up to call my dad in fact. Seriously, it’s the bomb! But my only complaint is that whenever there’s problems, I can’t call my dad,and that makes me sad and mad!😠😫But that doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE the app! I am obsessed with this app, I don’t know how to describe how good it is!

Consistently good quality voice and video...no problems!
This is great.. Keeps me in touch with family and friends, around the globe!! Thank you! It’s absolutely wonderful to “see” and talk to family that live away!
It was great 5/5
I called Paris, France from Melbourne, Australia to make my Doctor’s appointments and it was very clear.
What a disgraceful service! 1/5
3 hours to get a dam number, purchased manny times I order to have enough credit to get a number, after which, would only process my number after I input my credit card and pay again. On top of all, the freaking S*** doesn’t accept SMS which is the whole reason I needed a number in the first place. This app is a time wasting machine. It doesn’t crash but user interface is HORRIBLE, confusing, running in circles etc... there gotta be something better out there...
Love it! 5/5

I love Skype; it allows me to continue to connect with my wife and kids when away on business.
Love Skype 5/5
Skype allows me to talk to my friends around the world. Love that it is on my phone and on my iPad. I also use it because it has cheaper international rates for calling overseas. Excellent voice quality.
Skype works great 5/5
By Don't bet the farm
Easy to use interface. Many improvements since I first started using it and they are proving beneficial. Having 100 Mbps download has helped too.
Fix please 3/5
Whenever i text they cant see it im only able to call but i used to be able to text but now it dont work please fix this
Good to have 4/5
Most of the time Skype works well and it is convenient .
Now usually very good and reliable 5/5
In the past the sound was not always very good, and the line often got dropped. Now I would say the app has improved enormously.
By Aaron 💯
This app is better than the other ones like ooVoo because ooVoo had a lot of problems with it. This is so much better and now I can contact my dad. So that is why this app is the best I’ve ever used.👍👍👍👍💎
Thank You, Skype 👏🏼 5/5
I’ve been an expat since 1988–I appreciate the consistent great service all these years—
Best, Economical Way to Communicate 5/5
By Intel person
Whether it's a free video call or a call to Skype friends, family or clients around the globe, I've found Skype to be my trusted "go-to" for efficient, quality calls. Be it personal or business groups conference calls, Skype has has been a dependable source for years and I hope it will continue into the future.
Very buggy 2/5
By Anon grumps
When it works it’s ok but it’s become increasingly buggy. It’s unable to connect on iOS entirely recently, which renders the app useless. Microsoft should invest some time in divesting themselves of Skype so it can maybe go back to being well written, designed, secure and not based on the business model of selling your information, oh and maybe it can actually work at all again. I give it two stars for at least somewhat working on other platforms than iOS.
Always Improving 5/5
I have used Skype for over 20 years and it continues to IMPROVE ☺️The is no better way to keep in touch with loved ones who live near or far. And the quality of service continues to improve. Thank you for taking pride in your service to your clients.
Overall, a great service 4/5
Love free calls to Europe with video. Generally, everything is great. Sometimes connections buffer or drop but often, flawless.
I LOVE SKYPE 5/5
I travel internationally twice a year and use Skype to make arrangements before leaving and for business and personal contacts during travel. This serves my purposes better than a mobile and I am delighted with the convenience of the service.
Add quotes 4/5
Add ability to quote a message for iPad
Works well on newer ipads 5/5
The ap works like a charm on my new ipad (2017), but had significant trouble on my old one. (I don’t remember the model, but I got it around 2011.). On my current model, it works like a charm.
Great sound quality but... 3/5
The sound quality is great, any problems i have I believe is internet connection. The problem is I don't get notifications when they are turned on using ipad. I should get notification and it should even stay on my screen until i remove it or another notification replace it, at the very least I should have a notification on the app saying I have x amount of unread messages. Also when trying to add someone new to contact list it's not very intuitive, the menu you think should work only will search your contacts; plus users can have the same name so when adding a new contract there could be a list of 30+ people. You have to scroll the list and look for something you recognize, since the data is optional you may or may not find the person you want so you have to message several people. Just use email address instead of user name or find another solution
The best 5/5
The best lo mejor increible
Excellent quality and great convenience 5/5
I use Skype when I travel abroad and need to make an international call. I find the sound quality excellent and am absolutely delighted with Skype’s service.
I love it! 5/5
By E J Garrett
Fantastic for overseas telephone calls to home. In 1973, I made a call from Austria to California - 3 minutes was$30. With Skype, that call is now negligible.
Super voice quality 5/5
Excellent connectivity and super voice transmission and reception. I now prefer to use Skype rather than my mobile phone for talking to my contacts.
Glad to have it 5/5
I've been an occasional user for years and feel lucky to have Skype. I would like to see the interface improved, but the quality of my phone calls has been superior to my Verizon cell phone calls between the latest iPhones and U.S. landlines. Back in 1983, I was victimized with a $3,000 surcharge by Marriott Hamburg for a 30 minute business call back to my U.S. office. Skype is an incredible bargain when compared with those times.
To many developers working at the Skype division 2/5
We have used Skype for years to communicate between our offices across the world. It was simple, there were no bots, no Cortana and the contacts were easy to find, if you missed a call there was a clear notification. Now the team at Microsoft are adding so many features and quite honestly cr-p that the essence of the app has been lost, we are going to change to something simpler and more useful.
Terrible video quality 1/5
I don’t know what Skype is doing, but yesterday I did two video chats with different people in other countries and the video quality was absolutely awful. Heavily pixelated and frequent freezing. When that happens I tend to blame the WiFi or bandwidth, but in both cases we all had plenty of upstream and downstream bandwidth (20+ mbps) and full WiFi strength. And in both cases, when Skype's video was freezing up, we switched to FaceTime and the video quality was perfect! So I’ve come to the sad conclusion that Skype has degraded to the point where I can no longer use it. It’s the end of an era. 😟
Pretty good app lacks some stuff i think r an important need 2 some people 1/5
By bigdog babyboy
I believe its important 4 people who own theyre own businesses or that work 4 a company from home 2 have it so they r notified wen people seee theyre messages or even 4 families with sick family members 2 b notified
Unable to resend undelivered message 5/5
My message was sent, but not delivered and I’ll have to retype it to try again. My only complaint with Skype
Why is the new update not on iPad? 5/5
I was wondering why the new skype is not on IPads?
Great app! 5/5
So happy to have this app! We have tracfone as our wireless provider and we can use Skype to make 800# calls for free. This is great when calling businesses who might have us on hold for long periods of time....
And, we don't have to have Skype credit to use.
Not working at all 1/5
After the last update my message aren’t reaching their destination and I am receiving nothing. We had to move to Facebook messenger.
Skype kept my family together 5/5
Regular communication is so important and thanks to Skype I had “family time” with my wife and daughter living in Jakarta Indonesia while I was i the US. It became our app for everything from simple emotive text to full blown video calls that would last for an hour or more. This app helped keep the bonds of family alive and for that a simple thank you for a great product seems inadequate, but there is it anyway! I’ve used Skype since before it was bought by Microsoft, I am a loyal customer. Namaste!
Love it hate the update! 5/5
By Dawn the Techie🤓
I use Skype all the time!!! But after the update on my windows computer, it has screwed up my outlook!!! BUT thankfully I have an IPad I can use it anywhere and it’s very user friendly..... I work with Apple and they don’t allow all that advertisements that Windows allows!!!! It does not affect other applications on my IPad... Love Apple Products! If Apple did not exist, I would have gave Skype no Stars!!!!
Exercise class 5/5
Skype twice a week with my coach. Coach of 4 years moved 1000 miles away but we still workout twice a week vis Skype. Works well with a SSD mall tripod!
Works great on my iPad Air 2! 5/5
By The Celestial Dragon
I’ve been using Skype for years and I wasn’t even an early adopter of Skype. But for the entirety of my using Skype it’s always worked for me and always been very reliable. The call quality is great for me. The quality of the app is also great. There are still features that are on the Windows desktop that are far cooler but this does everything I need and it works well.
Keep up the good work, Skype!
The app is amazing!! It is good quality and does everything it should do. The one thing i dint like is that you can use it offline. Overall, its an awsome and wonderful app to use. Totally recommend.
Great app 5/5

As always, behind the competition...
Does what it says it does. 5/5
Still as reliable as ever.
Perfect! Quality Totally Improved 5/5
Audio & video remarkably clear. No interruptions during the entire one hour and 15 minute session like in years past where I had to block video to cut audio to not cut in and out. Skype is a remarkable service. Thank you! MK
Wow! Did they ever mess this up! 1/5
I’ve used Skype for MANY years. I guess the business model has changed and they don’t want my business anymore.
Contact groups I’ve used for years have disappeared. The UI to find a user and start a call seems to change daily.
excellent bravo Skype ! 5/5
love this ! so easy and wonderful to be able to call
friends everywhere !
One of the great apps 4/5
By Peter in Japan
What can we say about Skype? It's one of the great apps, and will be remembered for all time. There are a few design choices the company made it which are a little frustrating, I would like to see them redesign it again in the future. One thing that's problematic is, I go to punch phone buttons and they've always hitting the phone button option and some new place it seems. The sound quality is excellent though.
We love our Skype across the Pacific! 5/5
Excellent! Sound and video impeccable on all my calls with Thailand. Calls are very important to us, and Skype makes us feel like we are in the same room...she can even see our dog playing while we talk! How good id that?
