What's New in Version 6.4
Piece of garbage
It's sad to see what Microsoft did to Skype - the Skype business will not be around much longer with all the glitches and should we say 'unique' user interface - good luck with seeing a full screen presentation, see participants, mute/unmute and use speaker with one-tie trying. Alternatives (GoToMeeting, WebEx..) are just so much better that the only way to push this garbage is through corporate/enterprise bundle deals.
I didn't want to write any review but having to deal with this pain every week because of my work leaves me with no choice. Rest in peace Skype.
Crashes regularly, the voicemails do not seem to sync: those that were deleted on O365 SfB server remain on the app, then crashes it when you select one. It does show unread voicemails in bold, which is more than the SfB 2016 windows client manages to do.
The app is able to call out to PSTN numbers & receive calls if you have cloudPBX and PSTN calling on your O365 plan.
Definitely needs work.
Still the worst messaging client.
If you miss a message there is no way to ever retrieve it, it's gone forever and all this app does is tease you about missing a message. Arguably one of the worst IM clients ever made and this one is done by one of the largest companies in the world. Sad.
