Skype for Business app reviews

  • Useless. Signs out after like 1 minute away. No ad-hoc conversations. 1/5

    By Fortune500Employee
    Always signs out very quickly after signing in. I’m sure I’ve been signed out while I’m writing this review. But the real reason is that I cannot do a conversation with someone that is not in my friends/coworker list. When I choose anyone (even friends in the list manually) and select message. Nothing happens. What is the point of Skype! Useless. You wonder why Zoom is taking off, Skype can’t even get basic things right. Spend a dollar on fixing Skype, Microsoft. Ge’ez.
  • Ugly step child of Skype 1/5

    By Pyrotech1620
    Microsoft does not care about Skype for Business and it shows. Skype has way more features and such a better user experience. The business version is old and put outdated with very limited functionality.
  • Why did you guys let Zoom eat you in just a couple of weeks? 5/5

    By 8oss 18
    This seems Nokia history! You guys were riding the wave in front of everybody and then from one day to another you lost it. Your have a good product but did not modernize it. Luckily you still have the confidentiality card which is keep making us use it for business purposes. PM
  • App was discontinued, no? 1/5

    By 321amy
    Not sure why this is still here. I had Skype for Business through Office 365, but it was discontinued, no?
  • Views So Far 5/5

    By Ebsdadon
    So far there is nothing wrong with this app. I am able to hear who I am speaking with clearly and the audio is very high.
  • Everything it’s designed to do. 5/5

    By beverlybopper
    Works great. PC, iPad or phone. Meetings are easy and don’t need to be in the same place to get what you need to get done.
  • Mesages Dissapear 1/5

    By spgca
    The Skype mobile app sends notifications but when you open the app the message disappears. If you do get the conversation it disappears when you close the app(even if it is running in the background)
  • Works extremely well 5/5

    By Psualum2001
    App works great and is very user friendly. Only issues that I’ve seen are when people have issues with their connection. However that is not an “app issue”. It’s their own issue.
  • Great for conference calls, chat could be better 3/5

    By C-land rocks
    Used Skype for business over last 2 years. Conference calls, video calls, and sharing screens have worked well but the chat is frustrating because it doesn’t always save the conversation particularly when switching between devices. Would be 5 stars if chat worked better.
  • Flame Emojis 5/5

    By Uncle Trill
    My favorite business app
  • Needs Conversation Sync Between Devices 2/5

    By RyanDougton
    There needs to be the ability to sync conversations between devices. I can not find anyway to start a chat on my PC then pick it up on my phone. Once you start a chat on a device you are locked into holding that chat there. Many times I find myself using both my phone and computer to chat at the same time depending on where a chat starts
  • VOIP Is good; messaging adequate 3/5

    By TunaFish#5
    The Skype for Business messaging UI has always struck me as dated, uninspired.
  • This was wonderful 5/5

    By EARDOC2
    I participated in a meeting sitting in my home in another state
  • Needs option to remove old accounts 1/5

    By mp427
    Near all Office Appa have some kind of ability to clear cache and remove old accounts from the S4B login screen...but not this one. It seems very neglected!
  • Manager- Hoag Urgent Care 5/5

    By AllyC9
    This app has been a god sent since covid we have multiplied our meetings to be on Skype. It has been great for 1 on 1 meetings.
  • Crashes 1/5

    By Mariahh_1
    It crashes the second I try to make a call to an external number. Every single time. What is the point of an app for calling and messaging that can’t call?!
  • Awful 1/5

    By you'reterrible
    Don’t see how you stay in business Zero stars
  • Support Help 5/5

    By Part 90
    I was new to SKYPE for Business, and still with questions after the initial group lesson by JIS. Jeri Moxley contacted me and set up a time to continue to work with me so I could learn how to be productive and use Skype for Business. On our call she brought in her colleague Neena Taylor and together they were a great team. I have learned in a relatively short time how to set up meetings, chat, and work the different “symbols” on the screen. They were an excellent team, and I am greatly appreciative of their patience and expertise. Ellen Heller
  • Great quality sound & video 5/5

    By Scott's little princess
    Had most of my quarantine calls with Skype. Loved it. No problems.
  • Awesome quality 5/5

    By Drewjyu
    Great job!
  • Received messages show only on lock screen 1/5

    By bk012345
    New messages appear on the lock screen, but then disappear in the app. You often only see a truncated initial message, and trying to resume any conversation is difficult. Apparently this happens when Conversation History is disabled on the server (not iOS) side. Considering most users of this app cannot influence IT to make server/policy changes, this app is relatively useless for instant messaging. Joining meetings sometimes works, but it often struggles when trying to determine when to use a phone call or Internet audio. You can check someone’s online status with the app. Microsoft should make this app work without being reliant on Conversation History. It’s a poor user experience otherwise.
  • Clean call. 4/5

    By Redbird28
    5 participants, clear connection and documents shared clearly and quickly
  • Dr Hunter 5/5

    By robert frantz
    Is the kindest doctor I’ve ever been to. Very professional
  • User Friendly 4/5

    By CMUJR
    Doesn’t always stay connected, but more user friendly than Teams.
  • So much improvement in the past 8-10 weeks 5/5

    By Vivismom88
    It looks like SKYPE has invested in improving call quality, so thank you!
  • Useless app 1/5

    By Gil2021
    It won’t sync properly with windows app. If I get a message it will show up in notifications then, disappear and I can’t read it anywhere. Please take a look at how Facebook messenger work and come back to us with a working product.

    By kastrodel
    Sick of having to use my iPhone - with my MACBOOK the app doesn’t connect to the microphone- and I don’t want to try to reprogram (the ONLY solution offered that has any type of positive response.). THIS seems like it should be something that was fixed a long time ago! But especially now with so much work having to be done with SFB (as approved by NYS Court system). No there are no other solutions that help - SFB does not show up in the apps that have access to microphone - installation on the MacBook skips that question - unlike when I installed on iPhone and iPad!
  • appliance Repair company 5/5

    By sirempire
    The audio quality was really good..
  • Gallery View not Available for iOS 2/5

    By Need Gallery View
    The App functions fine however doesn’t support the Gallery View so I can see all participants in a meeting at the same time, in lieu of only seeing the person who is talking.
  • Status Won’t Update / Not Correct 2/5

    By WFMC21
    This has been broken for a while but my status and the status of others is always inaccurate. I can no longer manually reset my status and it’s frozen in whatever it was the last time I logged in. Very frustrating.
  • One of the best 5/5

    By midnitetoil
    Super stable and easy to use. What’s better than that in this day in age?
  • Utter garbage 1/5

    By S&B500
    This program connects about as reliably as a messenger pigeon at a skeet range. If you do manage to connect, you’ll find that the controls are minimal and unintuitive. Also. there’s no option for gallery view of the other participants, which is exacerbated by the program not switching over to a speaker until they’ve been talking for at least about 5 seconds, so be prepared to say your name or risk having short statements or replies being rendered anonymous.
  • Works good, just a little awkward to turn Mike on/off 4/5

    By BigE coffee Captain
    Works good, just a little awkward to turn Mike on/off
  • Some people don’t have a phone I need this app again 5/5

    By Elsa1926
    Need to talk to some people that don’t Have phone
  • The chat feature is basically unusable 1/5

    By lp291906
    The chat “feature” is useless. It doesn’t sync with the computer. I’ll get partial messages on my phone, and then the rest gets sent to my computer. I can’t ever get the whole thread on both devices. There also doesn’t seem to be a way to disable that part of the app.
  • Miss all notifications 1/5

    By TCrewser004
    I never receive any notifications. All notifications are on and not blocked. This is an extreme design failure. The will come through on my work laptop. However, When I am I away from the computer, I never received IM’s or invites for conferences. The flaw essentially makes this app useless.
  • First time user 4/5

    By GV6000
    Not a very user friendly app to initially start with, but the quality of the call was excellent.
  • Tons of dropped calls 1/5

    By ethanvox
    Drops all my calls taken through my iPhone after about 5 minutes. Disastrous
  • WFH 5/5

    By [email protected] Instagram
    This is a great app helps me connect to my job and allows me to have the assistance from my co workers. Thanks state farm
  • Best International Connectivity and Clarity 4/5

    By Downeasteric
    We use it for International conferencing for Middle East, Europe, and Africa to/from USA. Skype is by far the best product for us and we have tried at least 3-4 others. No problems multitasking while on the calls.
  • Excellent performance. Like UI better than my desktop computer. 5/5

    By PeteProjectLead
    I work with a large design team. We’re all working from home due to Coronavirus. The performance, usability and integration of this app with Outlook 365 is outstanding. During our design meetings I use my phone for Skype while having my home desktop open to view our actual project work. My cellular connection is perfect - 5 bars. I think a lot of performance complaints posted in the comments here have to do with their poor WiFi or cellular bandwidth and not with Skype.
  • Skype Meetings 4/5

    By LeeLee Girl64
    I have only had 2 Skype meetings and it has worked well. The video and audio portion were both clear and there were no connectivity issues. I like it and would recommend it.
  • It’s all good 5/5

    By Shamelessness
    Great way to meet with my doctor during this Covid 19 thing.
  • Virtual office visit 5/5

    By Judy9449
    All the staff at this office are amazing !! Professional and caring always. Thank y’all for being there for us during this difficult time !!
  • Disaster if Working from Home 1/5

    By FID Monkey
    This app is currently a disaster. If another call comes in while on a conference call through the app, it kicks you out of the conference call. It takes forever to connect to conference calls. Quality is good when connected but connection can be fickle. There is no syncing between desktop and mobile app. Chats that happen to come in to mobile disappear (they are still on the desktop app, I hope). I’m surprised so many large organizations use this app, and why Microsoft/Skype have not improved it.
  • No Sync Skype 1/5

    By Spikezzzz
    The fact that this doesn’t sync, or push notifications correctly makes this a terrible application.
  • Used to work pretty great 1/5

    By llok1234567
    Suddenly doesn’t work with ios13.4.1. I don’t get push notifications anymore so what’s the point of having this app!?
  • My go-to online communication tool 4/5

    By Colsab
    I hear some quality complaints. But despite any issues (most problems are wi-fi related) I couldn’t do business (COVID-19 or not) without it.
  • So so 2/5

    By AllNicknamesAreTaken2020
    Chats on my laptop: darned reliable. Chats on my phone: hit or miss. I want it to work like Apple Messages - synced, history, reliable. Instead, it’s a pig in a poke.
