Skype enabled me to always be connected to my family 5/5
I’ve been using Skype for many many years. Way before what’s app and other similar apps and my experience has been absolutely great. Skype helped me cope with leaving my family and living thousands of miles away. I talk to them and see them every single day through Skype. Even though there are many other apps out there providing the same services as Skype, personally my favorite and go to app will always be Skype. Thank you Skype team!
Calling landlines over Skype 4/5
I am so glad that Skype has this feature so that you can call anywhere in the world through the internet at an affordable rate! It has made it easy to call the UK & USA from Japan. I have had a few times were I had a bad connection but I just hang up, call back and that usually solves the problem. I recommend the calls over Skype feature!
Life saver 5/5
Trapped overseas by Covid with a 12 hour time difference and a local curfew.
To call home during US business hours I needed to break curfew and walk dark, deserted streets late at night to get to an overseas phone booth.
I had forgotten I had Skype. Have been using it flawlessly now for months. Thank you.
Super cool 5/5
I can call my friends and family for free
Keeps me in touch with family 5/5
My family and I don’t have all the same phones so Skype keeps us in touch, especially now during covid times. Highly recommend
I use primarily while traveling 4/5
I use Skype primarily when I’m traveling overseas. I like that I can make international calls over wifi for a small fraction of what it would cost to use a land line or the roaming charges on my cellular account. The call quality is for the most part quite good, and I can also make video calls and text messages as well.
Love it 5/5
By Clari L
I use Skype since 2005 in various ways and from many places and locations with many different goals. It never failed me! I have it in all my computers and smartphones, I really love it and it is an amazing effective way to videochat, to talk and to call from anyplace in the world to anyplace.
Pretty Cool App 5/5
Pretty Cool App

Creativity of Skype 5/5
By Mar Mar_LOL
I’ve been using skype for two years and the calls are great quality and I can call my friends even without a SIM card.
Download it NOW
Skype is cool 4/5
I can do on Skype is message, video chat and do reaction. The only thing that I don’t like is signing in with Microsoft.
Loving it 5/5
The video call quality is amazing. It’s super easy to use. You can share screen and do everything like a pro. Love this app.
Microsoft still doesn’t get it 1/5
I am not sure what Microsoft gets out of expiring people’s credit at regular intervals and making them jump through hoops to reactivate the money they have paid in. The damage that this causes to Microsoft’s reputation cannot possibly be worth the few pennies earned from the few people who fail to reactivate.
To me this just serves as an unpleasant reminder of the “old Microsoft ways”. Microsoft still doesn’t get it.
AMAZING APP 5/5
I have had this game when COVID pandemic started, it helps me stay connected with friends and fam, nothing bad to say about this app. I strongly suggest you get this app and add all of the people you know onto it it is a very helpful app it’s very kid safe and it gives you many options of blocking people hiding my conversations and not letting them speak to you and then you can also add them and speak with them and call them you can turn on and off your video you can mute yourself and there are so many fun options so I strongly strongly strongly suggest getting this app is very safe and you don’t need to worry about a child safety I mean strangers can text them but if they tell someone immediately you can block that stranger it has not happened to me that many times where someone who I don’t know texts me that’s very rare. THANKS SO KUCH FOR READING!!!
Clear video call quality 5/5
By Ashok M.
Very happy with Skype clear video calls. Thank you.
I would give 6 Stars if that were optional... 5/5
Skype is a life saver.
So my friends can not use messenger so they had to use this and they and I say it the best
Nice Work! 5/5
Very good quality of image and sound, though long distance calls from another country are a bit choppy, but I guess that’s how it is. I use this to talk to my Serbian teacher, and It’s worked pretty well over the past few months. Nice job!
Very bad do to cyber bullying 1/5
By doctor cata
Joey the same guy made me tear up and cry he said leave f word to me and he also called me a p***y and he presented it was another word
Love Skype credit 5/5
By vho lb
I used Skype credit to call my dad while I was a peace corps volunteer and didn’t have to worry about him using phone cards etc. I admit I don’t currently have a SIM card and just use my credit when I can’t use a different service. I highly recommend this easy and economical fabulous way to connect and communicate!
Great rate 5/5
By freedom mom
I use Skype to call my son in Germany. Better value than any other service!
Skype d to be a great value with few problems. Easy to use.
Keep truck on your money and minutes etc
The UX is the worst it’s ever been. 1/5
Worse than the Desktop Skype client. I don’t know how they managed to achieve that.
My preferred app for video calling 5/5
I’ve never bothered to rate Skype before even though I have been a user for years. Then a customer service person at my cell phone carrier decided to cut me off immediately, as in during the middle of my call to the carrier, and I was left without cell phone service, no land line, no car disabled and living alone. I quickly pulled up Skype, bought a subscription for calling and temporary problem solved. As I await the arrival of my new SIM card, Skype has been my way of reaching people to explain why they can’t call me. Thanks Skype for working so diligently to improve the quality of your calls and for being there when I really needed you most.
Photo messaging should be more like Snapchat
Awesome with excellent video with captions 5/5
Skype just keeps getting better. My mom is losing her hearing and the captions work flawlessly. I am very happy!
Photo access 2/5
Keeps asking for more photo access every time I open it. NO.
Family Friend 😉 5/5
I have been using Skype for 8 years to stay in touch with family in Europe. Love this platform snd the quality of the product!!
Sharing with Skype broke 2/5
Skype itself works fine, but when trying to share things with other skype users using thr IOS share button the app freezes when pressing Send.
Great plans for the USA 5/5
Really enjoying the $3.49 unlimited monthly calls to USA. Strong App, clear calls... works great for my needs. Thanks!
Has too many problems and not enough customer service to help 1/5
It’s stopped receiving text messages and I can’t receive calls, I can only send texts and make calls. This is obviously a big problem. Worse, they have zero customer service to help out, only a sea of outdated forums where I’ve had zero luck being able to fix this problem. I don’t recommend this app.
Poor quality app 1/5
By Lance Dance..
Very poor quality app. Very glitchy, very hard to work with.
By Ur Mommy's House
It told me to rate the app over a thousand times so here you go Skype your welcome. It is a good app but please stop telling me to rate it.
So grateful 5/5
I work with my dyslexic students remotely using Skype. We used it all day long with my mother in her nursing home for almost 10 months. If it wasn’t for Skype her lonely existence in that nursing home would have been excruciating. She just passed away on Monday and we could not be more grateful that we had Skype to fill her days. Thank you so much for providing this.
Love the concept!!!!!! 4/5
By Siempre El Estudiante
This is the perfect app for when you want to really learn the language but you are on a budget.
Bringing families together 5/5
By Kiwi Sheila
So wonderful to see and talk with my elderly dad on the other side of the world. The video and sound are both excellent.
Super Annoying Bug 1/5
Keeps asking to select more photos on iOS if you didn’t give it permission to see your whole album each time it opens and not just when you wish to add photos. I sent a message to the developers, but no response and it’s still not fixed for mo the now.
By flash_ the_dash
So.... I am writing this review because I can’t support this app anymore. I got 8 devices in my house and I still can’t do what I want in this app. I call my grandma every day on my phone (iPhone XS) or my laptop (MacBook Air 2020). I have a sister and we want to be in the same call with our grandma, but we can’t. And listen... I don’t really care about what tablet my grandma has. I know it’s an Alexa but it’s still a tablet of high tech. So why am I giving this 2 stars? Because I can’t be in the same call with my sis and grandma, and because I can’t even share screen in the call. The thing is Skype needs more performance than this. I have a lot of good devices in my house and I really don’t think the devices are the problem, because they are all NEW. So guys... I really think that u should go home and repair these problem instead of making parties at your houses. For example I am doing school with zoom. Trust me Zoom is... MUCH better than this LOW tech called “Skype”. In Zoom I can do all I want with no problem. Oh and BTW stay home safe until u get vaccinated😊.
I hope y’all fix this problem
The best app in the world 5/5
I never write reviews but this app is amazing.
Definitely getting worse 1/5
By Wally Robertson
Unfortunately since ms bought Skype it has consistently and progressively been on a downward spiral. We now use FaceTime and WhatsApp as much as possible. Hopefully real soon I’ll be able to be rid of this counter productive product. Pitt - for the many years prior to the takeover it was brilliant.
Positive Updated Review 5/5
I appreciate that Skype has changed its UI back to being practical and user friendly. Getting rid of useless features and colors have made this app more professional looking and easier to navigate.
The new Skype interface is complete garbage. It now has unnecessary features such as "highlight" and "capture" which makes it seem like a wannabe Snapchat, but fails at being Snapchat. I get that Skype wants to have a "cool" and "modern" look but there are way too many squiggly lines and the options for different colors is useless. The white background and black text makes the interface look bare and confusing when trying to navigate the app. Overall, it seems like Skype has lost itself. The app focuses way too much on the "minimalistic" design, but fails to deliver practically and usability. It emphasizes useless features and hides the important ones.
Skype dieing app 2/5
Skype would be fun to would to use if it didn’t drain my battery & muting someone else
Great quality overall.
Skype is not the only game in twon 1/5
I remember constantly buying mobile number in 2010 till 2012 ( before Microsoft ‘s purchase of Skype )in order to call other cellphone numbers via Skype. Unfortunately, your policy has made me almost forget using Skype because Skype did not work properly in my laptop of windows 10. And the problem still exists. Many many thanks to other alternative video-calling applications which are much better and more professional than Skype. Bye Skype forever.
Skype is good for talking to friends 4/5
Skype is good for talking to friends but I don’t like how random people can talk to you... the gifs and emojis are nice but you can’t put stuff like :) or it’ll swap it witch is annoying the share screen is a great addition it’s super smooth if you have good internet over all Skype it a good app!!! :)
