These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

send sticky broadcast
Allows the app to send sticky broadcasts, which remain after the broadcast ends. Excessive use may make the phone slow or unstable by causing it to use too much memory.

directly call phone numbers

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

Allows the app to retrieve information about currently and recently running tasks. This may allow the app to discover information about which applications are used on the device.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

change your audio settings
Allows the app to modify global audio settings such as volume and which speaker is used for output.

read your contacts
Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals.

Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

read your own contact card
Allows the app to read personal profile information stored on your device, such as your name and contact information. This means the app can identify you and may send your profile information to others.

read sync settings
Allows the app to read the sync settings for an account. For example, this can determine whether the People app is synced with an account.

read sync statistics
Allows an app to read the sync stats for an account, including the history of sync events and how much data is synced.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

modify system settings
Allows the app to modify the system's settings data. Malicious apps may corrupt your system's configuration.

Allows an app to modify the sync settings for an account. For example, this can be used to enable sync of the People app with an account.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    Got an email from Skype. Glad I read it. Skype deactivated my credit since I have not used it for more than 6 months. Why on earth would they do that? I could not even remember that I had credit. Point being that if I ever wanted to make use of Skype's international calling service again I would have needed to load credit. Mmmm.... What if the warning email wasn't delivered? What if I did not read it since we are all bombarded with emails from so many companies each day? Not cool at all.

    skype free im & video calls download Works well for video calls - of course it requires a good internet connection. Occasionally the video will halt for a moment, and once or twice the audio has dropped out. Usually there are no problems. Update: I wish the developers would prioritize the audio. It's usually not a problem if the video freezes briefly, but too often the audio drops out completely.

    skype - free im & video calls apk Great way to communicate, I Skype from Australia to the USA daily and now in the USA. There has appeared some advertisement on the address page which is annoying and I cannot get rid of. It also disturbs me that the adverts relate to my interests and I thought that phone calls were private. There is often a problem with the video fragmenting but that appears to be related to the cable system in the USA which gives a much slower service than in Australia. Can't be helped.

    skype - free im & video calls download for pc Skype: It doesn't even open and crashed immediately. It used to work fine but for past few months, it has become such a disappointment. (OnePlus 6) Skype lite: It sucks big time. Videos don't record properly; there is no option to record audio. The messages go haywire if edited. Sucks big time.

    skype - free im & video calls apk download I enjoy using this app but I have a few problems with it. One, once in a while it won't connect when the person accepted the call. Two, the audio sometimes drops out completely. I don't have much more problems and I will change my rating to 5 star if these problems get fixed. Thanks.

    skype - free im & video calls download for android Excellent! Skype offers advanced IM (text) messages similar to WhatsApp and better than SMS! Nothing beats Skype's video conferencing / video calls to one or many. You can get CHEAP airtime to make telephone calls to anywhere in the world, and access a range of telephony services helpful to projects or business. Also integrates with Microsoft Office, Windows, Android, iOS, etc. ...it is one of the most compatible platforms running simultaneously on all your devices. Highly recommended.

    free skype video call recorder for mac Skype; a communication app we have been using since the earlier days of internet. From calls to messaging, or even getting a second number--this app is really all you need. Be it your desktop PC, laptop, or smartphone--the app will give you similar experience on all different platforms. The international call rates are quite price competitive. You may also add balance and use it as you go. Highly recommended!

    skype free im and video call app download I am enjoying this app which has come a long way since the beginning years ago. It seems they have been the longest running app for communication. I only had a couple of issues with voice quality and dropping calls. This is one of the cons for me, which is the reason I rated a 4 instead of 5 stars. Other than these instances, it's a great app.

    skype free video calling It is not possible to have any date format other than the mess that's used in the USA, with day and month all mixed up. It seems like the app developers remove features on purpose to annoy users instead of adding them, when they are making updates. I only download it for job interviews that require it and offer no alternative, and delete it right away. Otherwise it is definitely not woth having. Good thing there are new alternative apps for video calling.

In support chat, they write they've got technical problems and for further help I need to sign in(which I can't!)! They created a new account for me which I don't need since I've already got an account! I don't need new! I need full access to my old one with my contacts and history and (yes!) money I paid (apperantly, the account is not blocked for paying money to!).

Though I am getting that option when I am calling in a group. And also the VIDEO SETTINGS is not available in my laptop now after the last update. Please check these points...

    Microsoft apps are so freakin useless regarding the login. Because they're constantly trying to integrate things together or get you to use their emails you can get locked out of the usual account because they try and add their own ones for you to use are they mental or what? This is just frustrating, not good business

    Doesn't respect manually set status. At Windows set Invisible. Starting Skype on Android device lead to status reset to Active in Android version as well as in Windows version. It is impossible to set status manually for more than to the next Skype launch. It resets it at any circumstances.

    This app is like a lottery some days. It is up to the mood of the app. Some days are great, while other days are a catastrophe. Needs to be more reliable. If there are once any distortions, the network will not become stable again. Meeting needs to be ended and restarted.

    Terrible recovery and new device detection. I tried to log into my Skype to check if it would work for my appointment. Long story short I am now locked out as Microsoft verifies my identity over the next 24 hours. Couldn't even email the address I was using to recover my account. Will not recommend. Really dropped the ball on COVID MS... had a real opportunity here. Now G meetings and Zoom have all of your markets have from me.

    I have a sticker to cover my selfie camera for personal privacy reasons. Because of this the proxomity sensor is covered as well. When I make a call the proximity sensor thinks my face is near and the screen blacks out permanently. There should be an option to disable this or a code to bypass this. Even default call apps have no issue with this, why only Skype call? This is a killer

    App's screen gets stuck after taking a picture and can't seem to take & send a picture. Low end device optimisation required. Splash screen is shown for a long time please reduce it. Lacking in ease of use unlike Skype lite also how to do full screen. Laggy control popup, mic toggle actually responding takes a long time which is terrible and needs low end device optimisations and pretty unresponsive. App struggles a lot on low clock speed cpus please optimise it

    When switch to other apps the other view does not appear and also sometimes cannot see my camera feed. Phone gets extremely hot and uses tons of power. Need to connect to charger and still will drain battery. Gaming uses less power in comparison. Edit: latest version does not ring when receive call.

    Screensharing needs work. Could do better but overall I enjoy using the app. 5 stars for easy calling/camming 5 stars for easy voice recording 5 stars for quick msging, sending file, clips, etc. 5 stars for easy navigation and simple features 3 stars on camera connectivity; tends to turn off camera during cam session (not sure if it is device issues or the program itself causing it) 3 stars on audio; audio tends to cut out or not work sometimes 3 stars screen sharing with audio

    So they finally added the ability to customize the list of react emoticons... and limited it to 30 (and also censored some emoticons they probably deemed "offensive" from being added). Why can't you just look at Slack and Discord and let us use ANY existing emoticon as a react, and let us SEARCH them by name instead of scrolling through a list? Complete lack of understanding what makes good UI/UX, as usual.

    Since Microsoft got hold of Skype it's just got more unreliable and M'soft do nothing to improve it. M'soft's attitude is - do nothing and "sod the users". This is proven when no response from Microsoft SKYPE app team is ever given to a reviewer explaining the many problems experienced. So many reviewers have pointed out Skype 'Upgrade's' are a lottery to see what else they have fuxxed up. I recommend everyone move to WhatsApp and WeChat both of which are LIGHT YEARS AHEAD of Skype.

    Scam. Shame on you Skype. I used the call out to make international calls to Egypt. When I got the credit it was said, the cost is 16.6 cent per min. Later I noticed my credit deceased too much. I discovered there is extra 9.2 cent cost per min written in small line. Total is 25.8 cent min. Misleading info about the pricing policy. Just use the free calls and use any other app for the paid calls. Shame on you Skype for the misleading pricing policy. 😡 gonna unistall after my credit finishes.
