Speaker is not working 3/5
I phone 7 plus. If you have a subscription and you are on the phone on one line and then another call comes in and you don't answer. You lose the voice from the first call whenever the second call stops. So you have to blog and unplug the headphones to get the voice back.
In another case. When you don't use headphones and you use the phone calls speaker on your ear while having a phone call and then someone else calls you the sound of the first call go to the loudspeaker which is inconvenient because you don't wanna make the voice go in the whole room. Please fix
Horrible UI 1/5
The new UI is bad and the app developers should be publicly flogged for ruining an extremely useful tool.
Robert Biziuk 3/5
The new Skype is horrible, not user friendly. Who is Cortana? I can’t get rid of.
Skype is great but if you use it with anything Bluetooth, all other sound from other applications are extremely bad quality.
Skype user 1/5
By Make it simple
This app is terrible. Tries to be a social app but fails to offer clear and basic messaging functions and not initiative to use. When using the call function, it is not too clear on how to hang up after the call with the floating calling icon
Great Service 5/5
I couldn’t get cell service in my new apartment. Signed up for Skype and it works great!
I used to love 1/5
The new layout of Skype is terrible, I’ve waited patiently hoping they would fine tune the new update. But it is still way too difficult to use, and doesn’t compare to the old Skype. I can’t see how I look when I’m on Skype and if I change the screen then I can’t see how the other person looks and I can only see myself. I don’t know about the desktop version. But the mobile version has completely gone down hill.
Ditch Skype and Teamspeak
Good, and God bless you 5/5
By خيلي خوب هزار وصد افرين 20
Good, and God bless you
The mobile Skype app is lackluster as compared to its predecessor, the original Skype for computers. Half the time when using Skype mobile, my calls don't go through/ I don't receive a call even when my Friend IS calling me. The app is also laggy on mobile, although that might be due to the age of my phone so I'll cut the app some slack in that department. Overall, extremely disappointing as compared to the app on the laptop.
Bring it back 1/5
I know you’ve heard it a million times but I have a proposal. How about you give the people an option, to go with the old simple skype reducing the Horrible lag of the current one, allowing people to still enjoy the app. Doing this will bring many people back I assure you as if many of my friends now want to use another app because of how bad this has gotten. Please actually listen to the people, this is getting out of hand.
Pretty good 3/5
Well sometimes there are issues like the call stops or I can’t hear the other side but those are like the like to things that happened and yeah that’s why I rated four stars
Complete unusable, disrespectful mess. 1/5
Spent 45 minutes trying to prove my account (that I’ve been using for +10 years) was mine because some teenager with a xbox and a similar name have tried to log in with the same information once!
After that I’ve realized that I would have to do this in every device I own! This is hell. Skype is hands down ANTI USER, it’s actually mind boggling to achieve such badness!
Perfect track from excellent to SARI 1/5
Skype user for 20+ years and now this becoming nothing more than an advertising shill for Microsoft. To Microsoft’s credit it has taken over three years to destroy the utility of Skype
This last release does not even seem to have been beta tested unless all the current forced upgrades are the beta test
too much crashing 1/5
Might be because I have an iPhone 4, but I can't even type something without this app crashing every two seconds.
Tolerable — Saves $$ 2/5
Update 12/2017: Can no longer block the spam numbers – screw that!
I have been using Skype on my iPhone for many years because my $30 pay/go plan with a major carrier gives me only 100 minutes. The downside with Skype is that incoming calls do not come through very often. Most of my friends are used to the fact that they have to wait for me to call them back immediately after they try to call me. (SOLVED: keep the Skype app open at all times). The other problem is that my Skype number was previously owned by a fraudster company, and I receive a few calls every day from victims (mostly senior citizens, sadly) trying to figure out what is going on. I tell them what to do to recover their credit charges, and they are 100% grateful for the advice (before I block them).
Slow slow slow
Hate this app
I can’t believe that Skype becomes such a useless app. I still don’t know where to see my online contacts. The UI is terrible!
Don't get the new version it is terrible to use 1/5
This update makes this app not usable at all, all familiar things are gone.
This is not the skype we used to have, why some managers make decisions to flip the app upside down on a whim.
Go back to the old version 1/5
Half the time the emojis don’t work when you tap on them. You need to close down the app and restart. Then the emojis disappear afterward. This update is extremely buggy and I’m not sure how it made it past your QA team. From someone who works with mobile apps daily at work, this is a major disappointment Microsoft.
Great App! 5/5
By Elias Queen
This is a famous and wonderful app. It is useful for professional and private life. I am grateful they provide the service for free!
They destroyed the app yet again. 1/5
Literally. Tries to copy social media, but Microsoft does not understand that Skype is not social media.
Anyway, they did not even do it well.
Please fix these errors?!! 2/5
Everytime I’m on Skype and another call is calling me, I put Skype on Hold, and I am in the other call. Then when I am finish with my call, I go back to my Skype, and it does not put it back to Normal! It is STILL on hold! And when it isn’t on hold anymore. I CANT HEAR ANYTHING! it’s quite annoying! And then when the other person is calling me, I press Accept, and it leads me to ringing caller again! And I try to accept again, and it WILL NOT LET ME ACCEPT! It is stuck!!! PLEASE FIX THIS! I use Skype all the time! And it’s needs a new upgrade on this! QUITE IRRITATING!
So frustrating! 1/5
By Ana slavova
This app crashes all the time! Very frustrating experience! Would not recommend!
Ruined it 1/5
You guys totally ruined Skype. So confusing! Messy! Don’t even know where to find my contacts! Awful! Give us back the old Skype. You don’t need to have a “ follow “ option. Who will ever follow someone on Skype? There’s Twitter and Facebook for Liking/Following. Agrrr totally ruined the app
Terrible Update! 1/5
By The New CPT!!!
Nice update! I can’t even make a call now. I dial the number, hit call...and absolutely nothing happens!
Very useful 4/5
Mostly it's excellent. Today it was very good.
Bring back prior design 1/5
Unable to delete call history. 2/5
By Raj Mathai
I am trying to delete call history from iPhone Skype app but no option to do so. Please arrange to fix the problem
Great call quality and rates! 5/5
Great call quality, and very reasonable rates!
Too loud in Carplay 1/5
Gets too louder in CarPlay at the very beginning and then gets to the desired volume. No other calling apps has this problem except Skype
Skype is an amazing and efficient app for communication. I love the app, but I honestly don't think it will ever work for me again. I keep trying and trying. Even in different locations. It keeps saying "Unable to sign in, please check your internet connection and try again." I honestly don't understand.
I've tried and tried everything to get this app to work, but it just won't. It's depressing to be honest. I really miss Skype, and the people I could message with it. I'm afraid that some people I just will never talk to again because Skype no longer will let me log in or use the app.
Again! Even after the new update this app still refuses to log me in. The same thing keeps happening and I'm tired of it. I need those messages back! You'd think updates would actually HELP with this...
Hey just a little message guys the notification feature isn’t working that great every time I close the app it doesn’t send any notifications when I’m on different apps everything else if fine tho :3
back to basics 2/5
adding gagdets is not always good
the app is clunky and not intuitive
clearly designed by IT with little common sense
basic functionality and ease of use is compromised rendering the app less useful
Can’t send or receive SMS 1/5
By Maura Carolina
Can’t send or receive SMS on iPhone.
You can send SMS with only skype on laptop 🤪🙉
Please add the following 2/5
I will add one star since minor changes have happened.
Please add the following features:
1. Messaging to phone numbers
2. Skype contacts online / offline filter
3. More options for adding skype credit
4. Ability to access phone contacts without syncing - for making calls to phone numbers.
It's working but... 3/5
Skype is starting to work a lot better now, but I'm getting an issue where I can't get calls off of hold if I ever have to answer an incoming phone call that's not from Skype. However I can now get alerts from messages and it's not a buggy as it was before. As a result I've bumped this up to three stars from my original one, but that one glaring inconvenience holds it back from going much further.
Fix the UI 1/5
You're release notes say your listening to feedback but you clearly aren't because you haven't fixed the UI or made it easier to see status, actually make calls. I don't need the ability to send panoramic photos, I do need the ability to make high quality calls to friends and family. You took a functional app and let your UX department run wild. Don't be snapchat.
This update 😭 1/5
I miss the old skype.. I’m having such a hard time adjusting the speaker and such.
Fine, but hold function is awful 2/5
I use Skype frequently for international phone calls, and for that, it serves its purpose. What I don't get is the drastic redesign that happened a couple months ago. I find the whole thing really confusing and unintuitive, but the WORST is that since that update, the hold function is incredibly frustrating. I've never purposely put someone on hold on Skype, but if I'm on a Skype call and an alarm goes off on my phone, Skype automatically puts the call on hold. As far as I can tell, there is no way to take them OFF hold, so every time this happens, I have to end the call and call back. Ridiculous.
I HATE THIS 2/5
By Miyu Suzumaki
Um so first you try to turn Skype into Facebook messenger/snapchat and NOW i can’t even log into my account?!
UGH, honestly wth I miss the old Skype
Skype is Dead... Time to Move On 1/5
By this app doesn't work 4 me!
Skype team, I've been patient. When I lost the ability to sign in to my original Skype account about two years ago, I said "okay, that's fine" and I created a new one with my Facebook. There were some hiccups, but it worked fine for about a year. Then, with a new update I lost the ability to log into the account I created with Facebook. Begrudgingly, I created a new Microsoft account as suggested. Logged in with my *new* new account. And now, with this new update, I can't even search or add contacts. Neither on Mac or on iPhone! The UI is horrendous and convoluted. Cortana and all the bots are annoying. Tons of frustrated users are posting in the community and no one is reaching out with answers. You've created quite possibly the worst and most unusable update for an application I've ever seen. From here on out, I guessing I'll be using FaceTime, WhatsApp and Google. Microsoft has shot itself in the head with this one. Well done.
Unbelievably bad UX and Cortana shoved in. 1/5
By Nick LkWorth
Whoever designed this crap should be fired. And whoever decided to shove Cortana as a chat bot with no way to remove it should be sentenced to picking up garbage on the side of a highway in an orange jumpsuit.
Calling for me DOES NOT WORK. I got this app for me and my younger brother so we can communicate with calls, but when we do I get no notification or way to pick up. it's really annoying, especially because he doesn't understand reading
Yes. This is super slow on my phone and y'know, I'd like it if I could actually use this app without hitting send twice and sending duplicate messages because of how slow it is. Thanks.
the app is very slow on my iphone 6 plus, does not work very well. calls drop and sometimes when i try to answer it says “connecting” for about two minutes and then the call fails. needs improvement.
I actually like the new update 5/5
The update is sleek and much more functional than the old system. The old app system would crash constantly and deliver low quality video streaming, but now the app runs smoothly and looks great while doing it.
It won’t open 1/5
Iv had Skype and in this new update it won’t even open it goes to the loading screen and shuts off! How am I supposed to be able to use the app if it won’t open! Please fix immediately....
Worst App!!! 1/5
The worst app ever? That putting it mildly.. what the f...? Is cortana? Why can it no be removed?Hi f.. yourself Microsoft!!!!!!!
I miss notifications all the time. Google Hangouts is more reliable.
