I’m getting too much spam from unknown people….
So I pay this for what? This has to be the most unreliable app ever. I can’t make calls today. It’s down. I try to call the and app closes. Ridiculous. You want our money but gives us crappy service. The calls have closed for a while you need to explain and say “I’m sorry the call dropped” all the time. Please make Skype be back to what it used to be. 🤬
I find this app to be most convenient, useful and affordable when compared to carrier rates. Thanks Skype.
Can’t make a call or send a single text to a cell for free anymore? Well, that makes the whole app useless. Not even a way to watch ads or anything like that to earn minutes/credits.
iOS 16.1.1, iPhone 14 Pro Max. After pressing the End Call red button in the Skype app, the Dynamic Island green camera icon remains active, and the Active Call (Phone) app is still showing a call in progress. Then, pressing the End Call button in the Active Call (Phone) app immediate displays “Call Failed” and then the call actually ends. Please fix.
The recent update are terrible. Skype is trash. Heavy nasty glitches. Skype lock my account.
the last week version is the worst for ages, the GUI is constantly crushing, presenting the blank white screen.
It is an old freind. A pioneer that started much earlier and resisted to date. The quality is still remaining. Easy to use and user freindly… Let’s keep it for ever
I just can’t believe this app with that history from the years has loooooots of bugs and inconvenience inside.
Have been get this error in the past few weeks - “Your connection is too weak. Please try again later” for making international calls to Beijing, China. The issue is still not solved. Very frustrating.
