  • Perfect backup for communicating

    By seamo_11
    I’ve used this app for years around the world being in the military and it has always taken care of me. The ability to get a U.S. number has provided endless flexibility for two-way communication. In addition, being able to call landlines, cellphones, and having text capabilities from anywhere in the world has been invaluable. Although, there are many other apps on the market with similar capabilities, Skype has always been one that I have kept installed for piece of mind.

    There is a reason they are number one
  • Same lousy program

    By Pdx_biker9
    Ever since Microsoft bought Skype all intelligent development to it stopped. I used it again after a couple years off and again the interface made no sense whatsoever -extremely hard to just simply dial a phone number without entering it in your contacts. It wouldn’t put in the right country code easily and it wouldn’t show my credit - it gave me misleading information that I needed to buy more credit but i found it remembered part of the Skype credit I have left before.

    Great for calling and texting friends!
  • Use it all the time

    By Leia64
    I used this app all the time while my boyfriend was deployed. It worked very well for the long distance calls. We both had WiFi and very rarely did I have a call drop or freeze, it also works well on data. Overall very good for video, audio, and messaging, and has a beautiful layout.
  • FIX.

    By laya.
    OMG. this is so frustrating at this point. skype was such a comfortable app that I have been using on desktop and phone. Desktop is fine, but suddenly on mobile (maybe 2 months ago), every time I switch apps after having turned my camera on during call, the camera will come on temporarily when I come back to the app and shut off after about 8seconds. The only solution is ending the call and starting again. This is so inconvenient and if the other party is sleeping or away from the phone they can’t even pick up the call. I wish this problem would be fixed. I wish all of these apps would realize when they’re ahead and just stop changing everything. Skype is plenty comfortable the way it is, and with every update it’s becoming less and less convenient. Please fix this problem.

  • Bugs you with notification ads when you buy Skype Credit

    By Borpsaws
    After getting Skype Credit as part of an Office 365 subscription, I started getting multiple intrusive push notification ads bugging me to use my Skype Credit. This is a violation of my trust - I allowed Skype to have notification access because I wanted to stay in touch with family and friends, not because I wanted to have my time disrespected by unwanted ads. Unfortunately, I ended up disabling all notifications for Skype as a result, completing my migration away from it for all my instant messaging needs. I hope someone from the product team at Microsoft reads this review and takes it seriously, and removes this unwanted intrusion before future customers are also driven away by it.
