Customer Reviews

Poor quality

I've had this app for such a long time, probably for a year or two but it's very poor in quality. Skype is the only place I know of where you can make free long distance calls but why do it when they always drop! The messaging system has gotten worse with this new update for the Apple Watch. It took me a whole day to receive two messages from one of my contacts and the wait time is just getting longer and longer. I can't use it anymore, what's the point in using this app when you can't get the use out of it? Skype you were once great now you're far less than subpar.

A kids point of view

I love this app and I have it on my computer. I just moved schools and the only way I can contact my friends is through Skype and we all love it because if we can't talk at the moment we can put a sign that would mean we can't Skype or if we're not home you can be offline and they would know and on the computer you can group chat and see each other at the same time it is so much fun and is amazing😄😀😆😜😋

Useful but drains battery

I have cellular data turned off for my phone but I still get skype notifications when I am not connected to wifi. I've had to delete the app and reinstall it when I need to use it because my battery drains too fast when I have the app. And for someone who keeps my phone on the lowest brightness and keeps apps closed as frequently as possible and uses airplane mode when I do not need to contact people, having Skype drain my battery so much is frustrating to say the least.
