Good app, some flaws 4/5
Personally I am hunk Skype is a great app. The only problem I have with it is the sign in feature. So I just recently changed my Microsoft password and Skype automatically signs me out. No problem that’s a safety protocol, I get it. But the fact that when I try to sign into my new account and it keeps saying check connection? I have tried it on 3 different WiFi signals and on my data. So I know it isn’t my connection. I’ve tried deleting the app but somehow it still has the same problem. Please fix this, I really like the app. Keep it up Microsoft! 👍😎
It has many bugs and doesn’t work right. The app doesn’t handle headphone/speaker right. Rotation and switching between apps make it crash
Battery life 🔋 2/5
Skype is a great way to communicate but it drains my battery so fast. I plug my phone in and. Use Skype at the same time and it’s like i don’t even have it plugged in.
Can’t disable integrated calling 😡 1/5
By Numbuh 444
WHY ON EARTH would you take away the option to turn off integrated calling?! I absolutely hate being constantly disrupted by Skype calls when I literately have all notifications disabled, and my skype set on “do not disturb”. Yet it STILL rings on my phone. BRING BACK THE OPTION TO TURN IT OFF PLEASE.
I like Skype 5/5
I like using Skype
Skype’s Great Around the World 5/5
I love Skype - it’s a valuable service when calling other countries from the United States or being able to call back to United States went out of the country.
Hace que las comunicaciones sean muy sencillas.
By alzahraa 88
I can’t opening the messages !!!
A wonderful app 5/5
I work with people abroad and Skype is reliable and make my professional life so much easier, I am very grateful. Clear communications and very easy to use. Thank you Skype!
Skype has major connection problems 1/5
Many users are experiencing severely deteriorated quality video and audio and even text messaging that disconnects and re- connects and falsely tells the user they have a poor connection when they don’t, the problem is all with Skype and it’s on all devices and operating systems. A Skype technician I spoke with acknowledged it as a widespread problem with the software (it’s been going on for months) they are aware of it and the developers are trying to fix this monstrosity so far without success. So if you get a “poor connection” message it’s not - it’s a flaw in the Skype software .
From Europe to the US 5/5
We live in Lithuania and I t’s really important to have good communication with my family. Skype calls to the ones who have landlines in the States is such a blessing. I always have excellent connections with no interference. It costs pennies per minute to call so I never feel rushed. I’m ver thankful for Skype!
The best! 5/5

Nothing’s perfect, but I cannot imagine nicer than Skype
18 years of great service 5/5
I’m 75 so I appreciate how user friendly Skype is my husband goes back and forth to the UK he’s from the UK I’m from the USA we courted on Skype for 10 years on a daily basis. We married and now are in our 19th year of using it every time we are apart. Communication is clear and with a headset better than a phone. Thanks!
Okay 👌🏾 5/5

Skype raising the bar with the crystal clear calling. 💯
By Alm0nd M1lk
I use this app for all of the friends that have tablets well done good quality and amazing how you can call people with only WiFi
I’m in a LDR with a man from India so video chatting is our main form of communication. We have tried multiple apps and have had a horrible time finding decent video quality!! This is the first app that has actually allowed us to see each other’s faces clearly!! We also worry about security and privacy and definitely appreciate the security of Skype!! Thank you so, so much!!!
Yes Skype is good 5/5
I’ve used Skype for 7 years and I love it
Needs improvement! 2/5
It should be possible to edit The phone number you’re dialing in, at a specific place. Otherwise calling overseas can get frustrating because it’s impossible to copy and paste the number onto the dial pad After the designated country code.
Use it daily most times 100% ok Thanks Skype good for my business
Serviço de qualidade. 5/5
Uso o Skype no trabalho, faço chamadas para todo Brasil por um preço muito baixo, as chamadas são na maioria das vezes muito boas, não tenho do que reclamar.
Invasive spyware called Cortana 1/5
By Tracy Greenwood
This is the last straw. Microsoft has added spyware to a once useful app. There is no way to disable Cortana. This is much like the malware called Windows 10.
Microsoft, stop angering your customers. You are making poor decisions knock it off. At least give us a way to disable the so-called feature.
I am not interested. Take it off my phone.
Love Skype calls. 5/5
I have used Skype for many years, first for work, and then to keep up with my friends around the world. Hands down the most consistent (good) call quality even with low WiFi signal strength. The app just keeps getting better and easier to use.
Good but’s.... 4/5
I am mostly pleased. But now I am using my iPad to skype. But the picture is so small! It only gets 3x5. Why won’t it get the same size as my IPad screen?? I use the larger 7x8.
Update = log in error 1/5
After the latest update, my app won’t let me login. Says error , errrr annoying
By melissa friend
When it works, which is most of the time ,it is as good as a landline.Very occasionally you might be dropped.Occasionally the sound will fade or be intermittent but this happens rarely.I live in China and speak to people all over the world and overall I would rate SKYPE as excellent.I also subscribe to Skype unlimited and lease four numbers annually and I am more than pleased with the savings, performance and convenience.
Does what it's supposed to do and does it well .
Not only does it do well in communication it does more than that amazing app that I’ve been using since it came out outstanding sound quality amazing video great screen sharing featureAnd best of all of this for free
Not intuitive, slow, not user friendly 1/5
This new Skype is horrible. Hope Bill reverts back to classic Skype before users switch to competitors
Works great 5/5
I've used the Skype app many times both in the US and out of the country. If the Wi-Fi connection is good, the calls are flawless.
the best :) 5/5
By Infinite love 111222
excellent like always
Skype is amazing. I use it everyday and it works perfectly. Whether it’s business related or personal, Skype will be there to help. Just make sure you have good internet connections.
Use with my gaming friends 5/5
Skype is pretty easy to use and is available on all platforms . It is our go to chat app and random messaging platform. The call are great and I love the ability to easily invite ppl through a link or connect with my phone number.
Great service 5/5
By Jibgu D
I have been using Skype for international calls. It works perfectly for each call. A very easy way to communicate.
My US phone number rings in Costa Rica 5/5
By Me too 4 6 8
I moved from the US to Costa Rica in 2016. I use Skype to maintain a local phone number in the US which allows people there to call me here in Costa Rica as a local call. Skype charges me about $60 a year for the privilege which works out very well for me.
Doesn’t work at all on my iPhone 1/5
I can only receive messages on my iPhone but sending them doesn’t work and calling doesn’t work. Video calling only works when on WiFi messaging only one way
Increase Skype Credit 5/5
By Change language Instruction
May I get some instructions of to change the amount on the app Skype credit.
Thanks a lots
Perfect and free 5/5
If you are looking for free video calling with any dude around the world I am highly recommend this App
Best app 5/5
By Bobby Biggz
We use Skype every time we travel overseas. Best way to make inexpensive calls home. Recently in Belize and a call to the States sounded like we were right next door to the person we were calling. Can’t live without Skype when we travel from home!!
A must have 5/5
This is one of my top five used apps. I travel quarterly throughout Asia and with my unlimited international data plan this app keeps me connected in almost every country. The interface is user friendly and easy to navigate. Although changes occur regularly the app stays pretty consistent on my iPhone.
Dismal since change to Microsoft 1/5
I used Skype for years, primarily to make international calls using credits. Since the change to Microsoft as the manger, I’ve not been able to access my account. Sadly this app failed me in an emergency situation abroad, when it was my only way to make a call to be picked up by a driver. The app refused my identify verification even after I entered the correct password and background retrieval info - it was deemed “not sufficient.” I hope I didn’t leave any remaining credit on my account because that would be a huge waste for an app that is anything but convenient.
Very happy 5/5
A big help for family members who are older and don’t have whatsap. Thank you for the excellent service and reasonable cost.
Not the Skype of Yesteryear 5/5
I remember when Skype on the computer was not worth the aggravation. Now, on the phone, it’s like I’m sitting in the same room with the person I’m talking to.
Loving it 5/5
Just tried calling some friends on their landlines. Sound is great and I really like it.
Effective and efficient 5/5
The app has improved I like the fact that you can text groups across the world in real time and the ability to see who is viewing and who has viewed every comment on the group. Perfect for my VA’s
Great app 5/5
Skype offers 60 free minutes to USA with Office 365 subscriptions. Easy to use and great call quality. Good rates worldwide.
Not bad but there some issues 3/5
A couple things I've noticed. If I'm on a skype to phone call number one the keypad on the lock screen don't work and for some reason my phone heats up majorly
I hate the UI 1/5
Too many useless emoticons, can't export voice messages. Terrible.
Skype is.... 1/5
Skype was pretty good before they had all of these updates. If you have a tech guy who knows how to fix bugs and the problems I shouldn’t have to write a nasty review about this problem. Sometimes I can’t see on the video call the other people when I try to call them or when someone calls me I can’t come back to see them. It’s only the picture and a color for the background. This shouldn’t have happen when Skype tries to update their app every 2 to 4 weeks to monthly. This is should be fixed in the first time when people complain about it. Today I had a call and the app was bad. I couldn’t see the video call. It was the picture and a color background. Also I couldn’t see the video when the other person answered the call. Fix the bugs and problem.
Skype was good until the updates and bugs. I can’t make a copy a link and paste my link on Skype message because the screen would turn into a color background. Why do you guys do updates when you have failed since the last one
Update wipes everything 1/5
Logged into skype after a period of time and along with the new update all my contacts are gone sooooo guess I’ll go back to using discord 🤷🏻♀️💁🏻♀️
