Pretty good 4/5
The app requires a strong internet connection but still a helpful app
By timmy old my
This app is big Gucci yes
I can no longer receive calls 2/5
I purchase the subscription 4 months ago and have nothing but issues. Sometimes people phone calls will come through and sometimes they get a busy auto message. Now for the past two weeks I’ve gotten nothing but complaints from people who call me saying my is busy and to try again later. I’m working with Skype Support team, but since they’re in London/Europe the assistance is very delayed and wasting more time for my service to get fixed. Don’t bother with this company. It’s cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for.
My status continues to change AND it crashes 1/5
I will use skype, set my status as invisible for my own privacy, and immediately 30 seconds later when I reenter the app, it switches it immediately to “online”. When I relogin, it goes back to normal only very temporarily.
The second issue: when I write a message near the character limit, it crashes itself. Due to this bug, I have successfully locked myself out of my friend’s chatbox because it crashes everytime I go back to my drafts. This is extremely infuriating because I cannot simply “delete” this chat because there are important items within it.
Please fix this.
I can’t sign back in 2/5
I’m having trouble signing in my account and it keeps saying that there is a problem with my Microsoft account and I have no idea how to fix it
I don’t get notified 3/5
I don’t always get notifications and I don’t appreciate that. I use this app for work and I need to get notifications
Its good 3/5
I like skype but it just LOGGED ME OUT when i was using it☹︎(ᗒᗣᗕ)ಠ_ಠ. Thats what i dont like about SKYPE✔︎
Keeps changing my status 1/5
I’m using an iPhone XR and it keeps changing my status to online even though I’ve picked something else. I searched for a solution online and it appears to be a common problem that goes back years. If you need your status to be accurate, pick a different app. I just can’t use it.
Good alternative for calling phone lines 4/5
My parents laptop is getting old and video chats do not always work , calling them on their phone from Skype is very helpful back up option. Skype was better before becoming part of MSN, but... c’est la vie!
Horrible Design and Glitchy 1/5
By Jeffrey Bui
I never write reviews but this app was so bad I had to. I downloaded this app for my grandma so she could call her relatives in Asia. First of all, the “favorites” does not work consistently. I couldn't favorite certain contacts and when I could, they would sometimes be removed after a while. Next, the user experience is not efficient. Since my grandma wants to use skype to call phone numbers as opposed to skype accounts, we had to first sync those contacts from local addres to skype, then resync those contacts to become a skype specific contact so i could favorite them. Skype doesnt allow duplicate contacts which is fine, but they make the experience so inefficient to remove contacts. I reccomend skype hires UX designers as this was one of first times i actually got irritating using an app.
Good 👍 4/5
But I need 2 things
1-In the group chat 💬 need "only admin can send message
Being a military spouse...you have to be strong for one another. 5/5
My boo who’s overseas in the military and I use this app over any other apps. We use this app talk and rarely do video calls until he returns home. Although we get cut off at time only due to his poor internet connection. But other than that it works well.
A skype bug 5/5
Skype has a bug that when me and my friends talk it hangs up randomly it is weird please fix it the app is amazing BTW
Guess they lack the technology thrivingforesight economy. or to tap into this 4/5
Very limited when your trying to call Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Togo, South Africa. Guess they lack the foresight to tap into this thriving economy.
Noel Dawes 5/5
By Noel Dawes
The app is easy to use, quick and produces good quality video and sound. Highly recommended.
Suddenly getting spam and scammers 1/5
I just deleted the app because apparently people have figured out how to get past security features… You guys had better figure this out quickly or you will start losing customers in droves! To stay relevant and competitive with zoom and other platforms, you have to stay ahead of the curve. Best of luck and I will return when it feels safer.
I love it! 5/5
By Nima mohebi
I use it all the time to chat when my family overseas, We enjoy it and brings us together.
Yo full on banned me for telling a girl I had feelings for her and she had them back I got banned
Works well 5/5
By M of Florida
I have clear conversations with clear video images when I Skype friends abroad, who are at home with good internet. No complaints.
By David Koechner
The app doesn’t really work 1/5
It keeps kicking me out of the account n making me redo multiple accounts n then kicking me out . I rate this app a 1 star I don’t recommend it .
Had problems, but got fixed! 5/5
This review is meant to edify the Microsoft Support people. They put in countless hours to help me and my problem. The problem was stated, and they got back to me within 6 hours! They fixed the problem within a week! Thank you all for helping me enjoy Skype to the fullest! I would definitely rate this app 5 stars for perfection, stability, and support! GET THIS APP! God bless!
Best invention ever 5/5
I have been talking with my family in Germany every week probably as long as Skype has been in existence. No more costly phone calls. Quality sometimes is poor but is most likely because of bad internet. What a great invention! It’s free without advertisements. Thank you to the people who made this possible!
Skype needs to fix a lot of issues, don’t recommend 2/5
By Leo the fire Lion
Skype can you please fix all of the image issues and connection issues, my screen always turns black so nobody can see me and it is always freezing up so we can’t see each other and we can’t ever hear each other because quality is so bad and my video chat randomly ends and takes unwanted screenshots, also my family and friends have told me that they have the same issues.
What is happening 4/5
I’ve had skype for years and I am just coming to a problem with the app. Whenever I change my status to away or invisible it FORCIBLY put my status to available. There is nothing I see in settings that can remedy this.
Ruined by Microsoft 1/5
They took over a very popular product and destroyed it. No more custom contacts list and code is less stable than ever.
5 stars for this ? No thanks. I’d give it a -5 if I could. 1/5
By Enrique Raphaël Page Pérez
What is up Skype team?
First of all, congrats! You’ve had 10 years to make this work and it still feels like a rotten potato. It’s actually even worse than it was before Microsoft bought it (fail).
It never works, always logs you in or changes your status to available even if you ACTIVELY go out of your way to tell it not to.
Let me not even start about the terrible support for Bluetooth headphones (in case you haven’t realized Microsoft, Apple forces us to use those now.. considering it’s been a few years since THAT happened, it might be a good idea to GET WITH THE TIMES and make a service that doesn’t require me to be rocket scientist to use my bt headphones).
I’m simply done with it, deleted and never to be downloaded again. There’s far better FaceTime services than this useless app.
At least coworkers are not gonna be calling me all day thinking I’m available because your service is so useless it can’t even keep track of my status.
Ps: If the app actually had anything that the other 10000 apps that do the same, don’t... I’d consider not trashing it immediately.
The truth is, Skype started “this revolution” and they’ve by far become the most useless player on the field - so congratulations Microsoft, you ruined it big time - to the point where you got eaten by the termites of your own game.
Skype is great 5/5
I’ve used it for 15 years now and it’s still my go to for long distance and cheaper calls
Good app overall 4/5
Had very few problems, the only major issue being limitations on the number of people who can join the call at one time, and not being able to do the call from my desktop iMac.
Really good but 4/5
I love this app but whenever I’m messaging someone, it doesn’t say they are active. I have checked with the person, and they say that their account is active on their app. It’s a small inconvenience, but it drives me insane and makes me worry too much.
going to be worse 1/5
day by day Skype is going to be worse, very 😢
This is great 5/5
With COVID going on now, I have not seen my 92-year old dad in person since March 2020. He is very hard of hearing and talking on the telephone is futile. But, thanks to Skype, he can hear me well and see my face. I can stand outside his window and use Skype to talk with him. And you read that right: my 92-year old dad uses a tablet and knows how to Skype. I am truly blessed.
Skype calls 1/5
So ive beenibg trying to skype with my Bf we do it all the time. And now all of a sudden the calls start ending after 5-15 mins into a skype call. Its quite annoying. Since this is the only time i get to see him since we both have different brand phones
Very good for communicating with friends
What’s not to like 5/5
It just works! Good layout, very reliable, easy to use - do it!
No one can hear me 1/5
Skype used to work perfectly and now all of a sudden no one can hear me even though my mic is one. It doesn’t matter the device either, the problem is still the same and only with this service. Zoom and everything else work fine, but not Skype.
Yes it’s horrible when you try to access an app owned by Microsoft and when you have more than one Microsoft app or an extra computer or phone every time you go to a different menu or selection it makes you enter your I’d and password or code and won’t let u sign until you change your password then with all the Microsoft apps it changes your passwords to some of them to the password you just set back up for the app you were trying to access.now you don’t know which one of all the Microsoft apps that now uses the new password and the ones that don’t. Now when you try to access another Microsoft app you have to start all over. Then they lock you out for a while then want you to use multiple devices to send codes it’s horrible
Skype is the hype (sorry if that’s Cringy) 4/5
By Auesha Khan
Skype is very nice all the things you can do and for the people who say that “why do we have to take a picture on Skype!” Ok fellow humans if you never knew that people take classes on Skype just like me I do and if they need to remember something they can take a pic and go but I love Skype what I don’t like a lot is that it’s kinda slow and that when you share your screen it is also slow but you should get this app! Developer please respond to this :) .
By koko is awesomeness cool
it wont let me call my friends with eather type off call i hv tryed updateing and looking fir problems and their r nobe plz help!
-an annoyed buyer
Perfect App to get during Quarantine! 5/5
I usually don’t write reviews but I have to admit that this app it’s been helping me a lot with this difficult and hard moment in quarantine without visiting my friends and family and practicing social distance. I’ve been experiencing anxiety attacks and other issues that I’m still working on to get better and thankfully I’ve been going to my therapist without leaving my house via Skype! which has been really helpful to me and other patients and people who need some help! and I’m not gonna lie cause I’ve been doing video calls with my friends too and it made me feel better and connected to them. Those are ones of my reasons why I recommend this app. 😉
Notifications do not work half the time. I go in to the app and have messages. Also last online does not work half the time.
it’s fine 2/5
By amber lee kakdns
it keeps signing me out for no reason
Good app 5/5
By Cool guy _69
Good app just wish it would stop asking me to rate every call after I’m done wit it
Hey Siri! 5/5
I would love to see skype be able to use Siri, so if I say hey Siri call so and so on skype.. it would actually do it, kind of like WhatsApp..
Also for the longest time I wondered why I didn’t get Notifications .... Today I think I found out it’s because I’m logged into my system... So Itold it in settings to notify me on multiple devices...
However I think this should be on by default...
Dev. Read and Respond Please 5/5
Skype is great if you are in a long distance relationship or friendship with somebody. Even if you just can’t see them, it’s fun to use. I can’t say that I don’t have any issues though. I keep getting signed out, is there something I’m doing wrong? Also, I would like if audio and video quality was improved. Other than that I love the app because you can communicate with friends and family or even someone you met online. Emojis, stickers, GIFS, and more! Great app and you should consider downloading.
Why Skype is charging me a fee to make calls 2/5
I’m disappointed with Skype cuz there’s a charge to make a phone calls now before it’s free
I’m not happy no thank you
Clearly not listening to feedback 1/5
Can't keep invisible status anymore—it automatically switches to Online/Available every time you open them app.
50% of notifications of new replies don't go through. Have to manually check for new messages.
