We're listening to your feedback and working hard to improve Skype. Here's what's new:
- Improvements to in-conversation search results.
- Stability and reliability improvements.
The app over all is not bad, thu its very laggy, and very not friendly to use, its lacking alot of features and improvements, i came from whatsapp and i started using skype on my iphone 7, i saw a very big difference,it needs at least 3G and a full bar to connect, and if you send messages while connecting it gets all messed up, when you send a message and its not sending, it should show the actual time i sent it, not the time it went thru, please fix the connection problem, it takes alot of time to connect. But over all, good enough for now.
Getting better and better
Current version of Skype is stopping all audio on my phone when I open the app, which it has not done previously
it won’t let me sign up!
It’s easy and simple to set up and a great way to video chat with others 👍🏼
I have been using Skype for several years now when I travel out of the country. It is fabulous. As long as I have good Internet connection I’m able to talk to people crystal clear where ever I called them. If they have Skype it’s free if I’m calling a cell phone it’s a very nominal charge that you do pay upfront but well worth every penny. I’m a realtor and yet I managed to travel the world and even stay one month every year in Costa Rica and still conduct business this probably would not be possible if I did not have Skype.
Skype is the best I just don’t like how I cant choose like a picture of the ocean for my profile it has to be in my camera roll or I have to take a picture
I can’t imagine life without Skype. Whether it’s an audio call to my family overseas (at minimal cost to reach a landline), or a video / audio call at no cost to another Skype user, this app is easy to use, results in high quality connections, and saves a huge amount of money. Also I feel reassured because it’s not owned by Facebook or Google, neither of whom I have any reason to trust with my personal information.
If I say “these aren’t helpful” it should disappear FOREVER not for a couple messages FOREVER. I’m sick of giving the negative feedback of “these aren’t helpful” JUST GO AWAY FOREVER. I hate it so much because I’m trying to have a serious conversation and I type the word “upset” and it tries to suggest me all these DUMB GIFS. JUST GO AWAY.
Needs an update, something got mixed up in the code with the last one- can no longer search for messages and pressing on a quote doesn’t take you to the quoted message. Everything else works fine but moving the button for loudspeaker is weird, and please take away the screen to choose sound output when the phone isn’t connected to anything, just loudspeaker on/off.
Irs skype what do you expect lol Decent connection quality too
Might have two issues while using Skype in mainland of China. 1. Unable to establish connection to Skype business users. 2. Might experience weak connections through China telecom’s optical fibre network. and China mobile’s 4G networks Otherwise, it is great as usual.
Used the be good. Following last update it’s displaying all contacts including so I have no idea who they are. Struggling to find previous key numbers.
It works for making calls and communication is crystal clear, but it’s hard to find recents Or people in your address book. With each new version things keep moving around, so you’re constantly relearning everything.
Can no longer use. Trying to get refund of credit.
I switched to Viber. Godawful app now, give us a simple app that lets us make video calls and message simply, not a bloated app that tries to do everything! Even the Mac app is so bad now, video is choppy and drops frames and it’s ONLY on Skype. Other apps (including photo booth and other video calling apps) work fine.
Skype is a handy app but the user interface is a frustrating disappointment with small buttons disappearing and appearing from the screen. Give us ONE BIG BUTTON to end a call and not buttons that you have to chase around to end your call.
I don’t use the app very often because I don’t make many calls, but are use it to call overseas and it works very well with immediate ring on the other end what more can I ask for.
Notifications are always hit or miss for me. It works.
The call never drops and when u Skypetime the screen never freezes!
Fully functional and capable with several nice features, but a blizzard of steps to make a single skype to phone call. Can’t seem to find what I need. Clumsy interface.
I’ve been using this app for many years now to talk to my long distance friends. It’s always worked very well for me, but I do wish that highlights were still a part of the mechanics in the app. They were really nice to have and I’d love is they could be brought back. But overall it is an amazing app that I will continue to enjoy
Switch back the speaker function. It is very annoying to have to click into it, and then click which option you would like. It’s an extra unnecessary feature. If it is connected to other options then it makes sense to be able have that function available, but when it is just between speaker and regular volume it should only be one click. The app overall is great, but that new feature is tedious.
Easy to use! Calls abroad are clear as local! Love it! Thanks
I can never hear my phone when I have a message and it can’t be changed.
What is up with your update on Skype 8.38 I have updated it So many times and once you refresh the app it in App Store update for apps on my iPhone it is always saying update it’s definitely not a problem with my iPhone is your app I have uninstalled reinstalled and it’s the same problem no matter what you do do you actually read the feedback like you say you’s do because if you’s did you’s would have fixed this issue all ready
Skype update to 8.38 not working on iPhone X... appears to have updated successfully but update shows again on refresh... please fix or explain what is wrong.
I use (or used rather) Skype for work conference calls. Then it blocked the conference number for some reason. Took days (and two complaints) to get back. Cost about €80 in phone bills. In the meantime I opened another account on my iPhone to use. I can’t get into that now - ‘Something went wrong’ Very frustrating.
I’ve been using Skype for over a decade and it’s current implementation is seamlessly integrated with iOS. Call logs and use of Bluetooth devices are two examples where you don’t have to worry about it being a third party app.
The only app that can’t do proper notifications on iOS. And it’s supposed to be a messenger lol. Absolutely useless when you don’t know someone’s messaging you.
I use the app daily and find it excellent.
Once both parties have good internet connection this app works brilliantly. If connection lags or fails it automatically redials.
This app is definitely the best yet Easy to use Easy to manage
