No Notifications 1/5
I have checked setting- it's on and claims I will push notifications even if the app is closed. Sometimes I get notifications but about 80% I don't. What is the point of a messenger app if I don't know I have messages?

I moved back to Ireland but still have American clients so this app is the most reliable means of phoning them or anyone abroad. US 800 numbers are free with Skype which is lovely.
It's Skype. 5/5

If you don't know Skype by now, I don't know what to tell you. If you want to do a video chat with another person or a group of people, this is the app for you. I use it 3 to 4 times a week to video chat. Are use it daily for a group text messaging. I've never had any problems with it. It does what it says it supposed to do and it does it well. Five stars.
A great little app... Constantly improving! 5/5
I've used it for years. I'm always glad to have it and always glad to see how they keep making it better!
Still going great 5/5
I've enjoyed a consistent high quality over the years. And our team has exercised this product in many scenarios and across many many countries. There have been an occasional glitch, & there are certain non-optimal environments that caused the quality to be diminished or on occasion fail, but over all this has been a highly reliable, affordable product.
Awesome app 5/5
Even though my bf is all the way in Florida I still get to talk to him everyday thx Microsoft
Great app 5/5
Great quality and sound
'Skype Has GIFs?!' 5/5
Years ago, I'd used Skype to keep in contact with my deployed fiancée (e.g., send photos, video chat, and IM). Other than serving that purpose, Skype seemed limited. I've been re-introduced to the business side of Skype via my boss, who lives across the US and suggested I download it for meetings, conference calls, and document-sharing. Not only was I immediately surprised that Skype hadn't fizzled out like all of its IM contemporaries (like AOL...LOL), but it's been two months since I re-downloaded it, and I'm still figuring out all the in's and out's / capabilities of the app. The app's mobile version is not only arguably better than (undoubtedly as good/reliable as) the desktop version, but the app itself has gotten a huge makeover and augmentation. Despite living in the middle of the desert with horrible cellular reception, I'm able to keep a reliable connection with my boss (who lives in a tiny, unheard-of town in Oregon) using the mobile app. (I also use a set of headphones for my phone/laptop during audio calls, but only because it frees up my hands without the inevitable background noise & quality reduction that comes with using the speaker. It's great, easy to use, and they've certainly spiced it up for all sides: social, business, educational, and personal! I highly recommend this new-and-improved app!
Thumbs up 5/5
I've used Skype for 15-ish years and it is super useful.
Awesome app!!!! 5/5
Great app! I use it almost everyday while I've been away from home. I can say it's the best video app that I know of.
Progress not perfection 4/5

I nearly bought another service but held out, the recent updates have made a difference.
It's the app I use the most when I travel abroad 5/5
By Howard Pan
This app allows me to keep in touch with my family and colleagues when I'm on the road. Best app ever.
Simply the best 5/5

By Catherine wale
I used skype for a very long time now and i like how skype app you can change your skype name display whenever you wanted and get to change the phone number and address etc personal things skype asks for i was really hoping for same usage on skype on the laptop format to be just like that on the skype app i feel like it is way more better for ease useage instead of going onto laptop to do all those changes we want ..
Good but glitchy 4/5
Recently I've started using Skype and it's a pretty good app. But, when I'm in a call and I click on speaker, it turns off and on at least 3 times. That's really the only glitch I have experienced. If you could consider fixing it that would be great.
Every time 5/5
I love you ...skype !!!
Good app for making free calls.
Skype is an old friend 5/5
By Blackie Ace
Have been using Skype from its start . It has its moments most of which are related to the infrastructure in any given part of the world. It is my go to when on the road and have decent connectivity!

Forget AT&T 5/5
The big boys did it to me again and they have received my last payment. Skype works great anytime I use it! Bob Furlong
Security problem 1/5
It has a really weak security to protect your account. You can easily get hacked. I just opened my skype and saw someone sent a link to all my contacts, i had to reset my account. It happened while i didnt click on any suspicious link or even havent used my skype for past few weeks.
Works very well. 5/5
Extremely satisfied with the performance and interface after the latest update.
Awesome app 5/5
I have family out of the country and it makes our communications so easy! We are always in touch through Skype. Love it!
Bad review 1/5
It keeps dropping the call...fix it
Can talk to my friends easily but sometimes the video calling is not that well but it doesn't bother me
Love Skype! 5/5

All times favorite 🌞🌞🌞 5/5
Skype is stupid 1/5
Skype is so stupid because I tried logging in and it says your account is already a Microsoft account then it tells me to verify my email address and they sent me an email then when I pressed next it went back to the login screen.
Perfect so far 5/5
By Gullivor Travials
Very nice so far!!👍👍👍
International Calls 5/5
Great for international calls. Sometimes it cuts out but not very often. Good value app!
It was ok, not anymore. 1/5
By Ninjie Fokken Rekt
Before, I was able to edit my display name (not my account name) in-app, but now I'm forced to log in on a computer to change that??? Every time I select "account settings" it takes me to a completely different menu. Please fix this, I don't even have a computer to be changing my name with.
Everything but text timing 4/5
Quick and simple, everything is great except for the time it takes for a message to come through.
Wonderful quality 5/5
This app has amazing quality when it comes to connecting with friends. It makes video chatting with multiple friends so much easier. This app is definitely without a doubt 10/10
So Good 5/5
The Best app
Bad Logins 1/5
I have maybe around 9 Skype accounts and this is no exaggeration. I have made countless emails for Skype. I log in one day and it works fine for a week, suddenly I'm logged out of my account and I have to log back in but it doesn't work, I reset my pass word, didn't work. Skype is not helpful and I don't recommend it for phone users. At all
Totally awesome App 5/5
Use it all the time. Flawless video quality and sound.
Essential for International Travel 4/5
The ability to call 800 numbers for free over wifi internationally is a highly underrated feature of Skype. Must have for international travelers.
Consistently drops calls 1/5
I don't know what happened. I used this for over a year without any issues, but the last 2 months it consistently drops my calls. I had 4 dropped calls today & one complete crash of the app while in a call. Get it together, Skype. I've sent feedback about this & haven't seen changes. I keep checking for updates but I'm up-to-date and the problems continue.
Love it, But One Problem... 4/5
I use skype on the daily and it's a great app for group calling friends and family, but there is one glitch that I notice every time I call, it is that the speaker will randomly turn on and off once I turn it on, and never stays on the whole call. Please fix that! Other than that, Skype Mobile is great!
Beyond EXCELLENT!! 5/5
I am fully satisfied with the reliability, functionality and efficiency of this app. No need to say more...just beyond excellent
Excellent app! 5/5
Clear voice and video communication
Consider the speed connection of the other person at the end of the call.
Terrible UX and getting worse 2/5
While sound quality is good and getting better, the UI and UX (user experience) have been getting worse with every update Skype has been releasing.
For example trying to add a phone number to an existing contact or editing a phone number in an existing contact is all but impossible on the iPhone App (and nearly impossible on Mac)
There are no useful manuals or help pages, and the user forums are one big mess of different versions and revisions, so all useless, too.
In the end you have to write down all info you want to keep on paper, delete the contact and create it again
WAY TO GO! Thanks
Improving each day 5/5
The calls are getting better each time, congrats
