You broke last useful features


This app was bad, but became even worse. Where are groups/labels of contacts? Are you kidding removing this? I can’t even find who is who now among hundreds of contacts.

Battery eater. Annoying “turn on notifications” at the top - I DON’T WANT TO! I want it silent and don’t see this annoying bar at the top. This app is bad in every use case.

The design is still awful


The result of your major update: all my conversations moved to Facebook messenger and telegram. Sorry, but you killed the Skype... R.I.P.

- the UI is awful
- the performance is low.
- no statuses
- redundant features.

Instead of going slack way (enterprise with all it's needs and integration with ldap) + regular users (no need to register organizations, you can talk with friends without redundant actions) you are trying to build just yet another social network. Do not know how many new users can be attracted based on the variety of existing social networks, but you definitely can lose your current audience.

This is unbelievable.


Year to year you become more worth. It’s looks like you are trying to do everything opposite to normal and popular messengers and chat app.
And now, even my Moms tablet not supporting Skype.
I believe in one two year you will only three users: owner, local manager and technical support-bot.
Good luck
