Customer Reviews

It's okay

I love Skype, with the recent up dates and everything. Something I don't like is that I no longer can see if someone has read the message or not. I would love to have that feature back. Also I have noticed that when I'm in video chat it freezes a lot and also the voice is very modulated. It may be from me skyping a long distance but I don't think that should effect it. I'm not skyping farther than 1,200 miles from me. It's not my wifi or there's, as we both have pretty great quality wifi. Just something to look out for.

Skype is great but the Apps, not so much

I love using Skype on my computer. Unfortunately the Skype app on my iPhone and Apple Watch have issues. On my iPhone I often do not get notified when someone sends me a message even though my settings are set to receive a notification. I have friends with different versions of the iPhone and they have the same issue. I do get notifications on my Apple Watch but when I try and open them, the app crashes. Please fix these issues so I can like the apps as much as the desktop version!!

Slipping Quality

Hello. Skype has been getting worse and worse. When the App is not immediately active, calls are missed, messages are missed, group conference calls sometimes work sometimes not, and now it asks for feedback on each and every call - it would be great to turn off that option or decrease the frequency of that request, as most Skype call quality is dependent on Internet quality. Please please fix this app Microsoft! It used to be so good, now it's just poor.
