I live away for college so I enjoy video calling my family. I use this for those who do not have iPhones and can’t use FaceTime. It was awful. Connection was always terrible - no matter the location, if we were on WiFi or using data. Mom could never hear sound unless headphones were used. Video quality was terrible (couldn’t even make out items or faces) and it lagged. Connection would regularly be lost. There was an echo and sound would cut out. Long story short - we found a new video calling app (:
People cannot hear me. It is frustrating.
One time at 3 in the morning my iphone called my friend on skype and I didn’t call her at all. My IPhone was off at the time and I don’t know what happened! If Skype can fix that bug than I will be very happy. Overall the app is very helpful and I can talk to friends that I can’t text on normal messages. This app I definitly recommend to people because it is amazing!
Why is it so buggy? Nothing was wrong with the previous version. Why is it SO HARD to add people? You enter their name and it doesn’t allow you to select the person you’re adding. Stop screwing the app up.
It’s slow. And it constantly crashes when I try to use one of its features like taking a picture. Not to mention it takes a long pause to get from one screen to the next. It’s as if the app has too much stuff and it is making everything slow down. The crashing part is seriously annoying.
I can talk with a group a lot easier than FaceTime or other apps and it is great how you can text and call on this app. The only downside is how every time I end a call it says rate the call I don’t need that. I love how you can send those moving stickers. It probably is one of the best apps I have used for this type of communication. I can easily send things and it is not hard to understand when you first get it. I really find this app useful, smooth, and amazing
I love it
I use Skype in Korea, Japan, GUAM, Phillipines, Singapore, thailand... works great!
Oh, it got worse. It’s extremely frustrating how it seems microsoft is trying to destroy skype more with every update. Now it shows my status as offline when minimized. Not good. I need to appear online seeing as I am signed in and available. What a joke skype has become. Go back to basics. Get rid of the awful and pointless features. Listen to feedback and actually change it for the better because it’s barely functioning anymore.
