New Update Causes Force Log Out!!!

I've has Skype for more than 2-3 years, and I never had any issues besides a notification issue, but it was resolved a few months ago. A little bit after the update, I'd receive notifications and as I go to review them, I noticed that Skype logged me out, so at first I'm like okay cool, just sign back in.. But it became constant. I have an iphone so whenever I kill the app, or even keep it there and go to my home screen, Skype signs me off and I have to constantly keep signing in, but even if I kill the app I'm still receiving notifications even though when I get back on the app I'm signed out. Please fix this as it is terribly annoying 😫😫😫😫

Pretty ok for Free

It's good, I shouldn't complain, however, for the sake of continued support, I must say that the messages doesn't work like instant as they work with whatsapp and viber, sometimes you hear it on the PC and when you go on the phone, no messages, then you need to refresh for you to see it, maybe some improvements can be made here.

Return a feature

App is perfectly fine I would just like to see the ability to swipe left and right to scroll through sent and recieved pictures like before other than that no problems
