  • TERRIBLE

    This app is completely awful to use! 1. Can’t lock my phone without it hanging up! 2. Call makes ringing sound for 20-30 seconds after it’s been answered. 3. To put a voice call on speaker is a minute long process, completely ridiculous! They answer right away and I can’t hear them because I’m spending ages trying to put it on speaker!! 4. App is just overall slow! I thought “improvements” were supposed to improve?? Skype has been completely driven into the ground.

    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!

  • A Hollow Shell of its Former Glory

    I've been using Skype since 2011, and it has always been a reliable, low-energy-draining tool for communication. However, with the advent of Skype version 8 and above, they've slashed their usability by half (twice). The app takes tens of minutes to load, if it even bothers, and refuses to show chat histories when it does. On top of that, I'm constantly prompted to link my personal contacts, and was locked out of the [formerly usable] app until I updated it whereupon it essentially ended my phone.

    I think Skype is fantastic. My boyfriend and I travel for work so when we’re apart I definitely enjoy still being able to talk face-to-face. I find it generally maintains connection better than FaceTime; it doesn’t freeze as often. I also really appreciate how if you have another program open on your computer, Skype will still have a small window to see the other person.

  • Bring back SiriKit, Make Bitmoji Work!

    SiriKit: When a feature that benefits people with disabilities is removed, it makes me really mad. My father relies more and more on services like this. People used to be able to use Siri to send Skype text messages, now they can’t. In a forum post they said it was coming back, but that was year(s) ago. Bitmoji: just make the keyboard paste work, please. I’m not interested in this apps monkey pelvic thrust emojis (not making that up).
