Latest glitch - FIXED!

I love this app I play minecraft and on there I play a server called mineplex and some of my friends on there have skype great way to communicate with friends and family and plus new update fixed latest glitch! I was typing one day when the keyboard was In THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN I WAS LIKE OMG WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPPENING AAAAAHHHH!!!! I could only see a third of it now and it was very hard to type. ThNks to skype's new update that glitch had been fixed. Thank u! 😻😻😻😻😻😻😻✨✨✨✨❤️❤️❤️😀😀😀😀 whoever invented Skype is a freaking genius

This is for all you knuckleheads saying Skype has low volume.

There is a speaker button. Press the speaker button and you no longer have to put the phone up to your ear. Press the video call button and it automatically puts is on speaker. Stop complaining about low volume!

Love my Skype

This communication system has made it possible for me to contact family and friends in any country that I have had the fortune to visit. I use it so many times when my cell will not work in USA. It has saved me from scary situations when my phone has been dead. I am sold on this service!
