requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using 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 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.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

Allows the app to use the account authenticator capabilities of the AccountManager, including creating accounts and getting and setting their passwords.

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
Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Note that this doesn't allow the app to call emergency numbers. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.

change network connectivity
Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity.

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.

disable your screen lock
Allows the app to disable the keylock and any associated password security. For example, the phone disables the keylock when receiving an incoming phone call, then re-enables the keylock when the call is finished.

download files without notification
Allows the app to download files through the download manager without any notification being shown to the user.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

find accounts on the device
Allows the app to get the list of accounts known by the phone. This may include any accounts created by applications you have installed.

retrieve running apps
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. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.

read the contents of your SD card
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.

record audio
Allows the app to record audio with the microphone. This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

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

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.

    Just reporting the same issue that everyone seems to know about but Microsoft isn't fixing. If you use skype on multiple devices and pick up on something else like your computer, this app still shows the notification and you can't dismiss it. Don't know why they force the notification. If they are going to force it, at least they should do something to detect that the call has been answered or is finished and remove the notification themselves. For a work around, I found that disabling skype notifications clears it. But assuming you actually do need to know when someone sends you something, you then have to go back in and turn notifications back on again. It was a minor annoyance before. But now with everyone working remotely, it's becoming increasingly difficult to deal with.

  2. Brandon Buck-avatar

    skype free im & video calls download I installed this app on my Chromebook and it ruined everything about the device. The app always runs in the background and after spending close to an hour trying to get it to stop running I finally gave up. I started noticing that my Chromebook (which is new as of January) was beginning to become non-responsive and ultimately very slow, to the point that other apps and even the settings program would freeze up. I uninstalled this app and lo and behold, everything works as it should.

  3. Justin Lane-avatar

    skype - free im & video calls apk I've used it enough to both rely on it and be annoyed at it. It's not compatible with Skype for business, which seems absurd since humans have put robots on Mars. The video quality is often good, but it can be twitchy sometimes. The paid VoIP number is one of my favorite features. Let's me keep up with family overseas but doesn't always allow them to call through or receive text messages.

  4. 민은 아-avatar

    skype - free im & video calls download for pc I've mostly had a great experience using this app to connect with family, friends and loved ones. Though there's only one thing I wish the developers would work on; I personally think it would be a great addition to the app if "auto-answer" feature was made more secure, with only select contacts' calls being approved for an "auto-answer" functionality.

  5. Angeline Ramos-avatar

    skype - free im & video calls apk download Don't use any paid services from Skype. You'll never get for what you have paid. You only get error messages like "This contact is blocked by Skype" and after a time your account get blocked. Result you never get for what you have paid. Be very carefully with the free offers. You are paying with your personal data and the data of your contacts!

    skype - free im & video calls download for android I wish I can move the little box of my picture around to different location on the screen instead of a default position on the top right. Sometimes when people talk, there are things that more important at that location that I want to see instead of my face there. I hope you would take this into consideration. Viber does let the users move it around anywhere on the screen. Please check them out.

  7. Ian Stewart-avatar

    free skype video call recorder for mac This is one of the worst apps I've ever used. Nothing is intuitive, it doesn't allow you to dial once a number has been called so of you need an access code for conference calls or need to navigate a phone system you're SOL. There's also no notification preferences. Apparently no vibrate function so you need to have volume on in order to know when you're getting calls. How can a company this large make such a bad app? Truly baffling

  8. Mercedes Hollingsworth-avatar

    Mercedes Hollingsworth


    skype free im and video call app download I would have given it more stars if it weren't for a couple problems. I don't get alerted of missing calls until hours later. Or they don't show up at all. Also sometimes when someone is trying to call me it will show someone is trying to call but doesn't make any noise or vibrate then when i go to answer the call it hangs up on the person trying to call me. it would be nice if there was a way to change devices during a call as well instead of having to hangup and call on the other device.

  9. Geoff Urbanz-avatar

    skype free video calling It's just so buggy in every way. Geez MSFT spend a little coin on getting the basic stuff to work right before adding so many useless features. When someone calls me I should at a minimum hear an audible sound. And on the iPhone app too - I Skype Gramma on her iPhone but can never see her video. Getting Skype to just work is just the most awful, horrendous, ridiculous experience. And I'm what you'd call a tech savvy person. I know what I'm doing but getting this to work is just impossible.

  10. Rosa Crux-avatar

    skype free video call limit What use is a messenger where you miss messages? There is no reliability. Sometimes there is no notification on the smartphone or the messages arrive late at the recipient. Save yourself the trouble, Skype is just an empty shell for nostalgia. Please stop lying, developer, as if you are interested in the app and how it works.

  11. Safar SL-avatar

    Its becoming more expensive to use Skype. My credit diminishes within minutes after topping up £10. I have to keep adding credit every couple of days. I also paid monthly for a number on top of that. I understand international calls are expensive but i could get more minutes 10yrs ago but now its awfully expensive to make international calls.

  12. Mark Caswell-Daniels-avatar

    The call quality is fine, but if I answer a Skype call on my PC my phone will continue ringing and interfere with the call I'm on. It also leaves an indelible notification promoting me to accept or decline the call I finished taking on my PC. Clicking decline does nothing. Clicking accept opens the app and does nothing. Nothing gets rid of the notification accept restarting or blocking the app from generating notifications... So I've done that. Outgoing Skype calls only for my phone from now on

  13. K S-avatar

    The app worked for two days. The quality of the camera and screen was very poor. It was very laggy too. After two uses, it signed me out of the app and will not allow me to sign back in. I've tried to uninstall and redownload the app but nothing has worked. On top of that, every time I made a video call, my phone would over heat to the point where I have burns on my hands and would die very quickly. (That doesnt happen with literally any other app)

    Utter nightmare getting through to customer care. You can't reach them with a call and the helpline chat keeps going off so you have to repeat the same process with a different person all the time. Its been happening for so many days and no thing's been resolved. Plus Skype keeps blocking some of my contacts for no reason. It's absolutely absurd for such an organisation not to have a helpline where to call and get issues resolved. Not everyone has time to sit and text.

  15. Helal Al Sadik-avatar

    After new update, I got some problem. 1. No notification even after being on the net connection active. 2. When I talk or message with someone else, there is no vibration or sound. 3. On the other side can hear my words very slowly. Please fixed those problem. Thanks

  16. Arnold Schwab-avatar

    Works OK and is very useful. Only 3 stars because once logged in, it is always active in background. Cannot go offline or close the app. I don't want to be reachable via skype all the time. Microsoft, please fix this. On the desktop client this is possible without problems.

  17. Victor Cherepanov-avatar

    Hi. I can't remove missed call notification from Android 100. I missed a call on Skype from a person. I saw it, clicked it, read our chat, but the notification still shown. It's really annoying. I had to reinstall Skype to remove this call notification, because turning notifications off didn't help. Victor

  18. Jen Pottebaum-avatar

    App search feature is TERRIBLE if you want to find someone specific. On the phone directly with them, still unable to find them with the search feature. By Name, by email, by phone, or by the CID number, NOTHING brings up the person you're trying to find. The Invite a Friend option would work nicely if it did something more than send an email to the other person to invite them to download the app. No link or anything to then add the person that invited you. This app is VERY DIFFICULT and frustrating. Only worth the trouble right now in order to talk to isolated family members.

  19. First Last-avatar

    If I could I would rate this 0 stars. This app has way too many problems for me to even bother listing but for example it hangs up randomly all the time and it will very often not let you leave the app or even turn the phone off without ending the call. Please for the love of god fix that.

  20. David Beck-avatar

    Signed in, crashed and said I had to go to Microsoft site to reset password, had to do that 5 times before it worked. Now can't find contacts that already have called me on Skype and have an account. It's pretty much useless. I'm so. Irritated right now, I'd leave no stars and give up on all social contact apps. It's complete BS.

  21. Brooke Mordaunt-avatar

    Brooke Mordaunt


    I would not even give this app 1 star if that was an option! It is glitchy freezes and that is when it actually lets you log on. I have been kicked out and my account has been frozen multiple times and I can't get back in without jumping through MAJOR hoops. I am done with Skype and microsoft, It has been deleted from all of my devices

    Hello. I am just wondering if your server is down. My skype app says "connecting"although my mobile data signal or wifi is strong. I am not able to view messages. I've uninstalled and installed the app but it ends up on the same problem. "Connecting". Please fix this bug

  23. Janette Chauncey-avatar

    Janette Chauncey


    I love being able to do it all, it's pretty intuitive, only took me a couple tries to figure out the various icons and, without reading any instructions, I've managed to be pretty successful. I don't have any criticisms yet, but then I haven't been using it that long, maybe a couple of weeks. However, I will add that this version is much more intuitive, I think, than the old version I had been using 4 years or so ago.

  24. Wm.J Ponsford-avatar

    Once in a while we get what I call a bad connection or all the circuits are busy but that doesn't happen much any more. I like Skype a lot. Last week there was several days when Skype would not work making it quite frustrating it's all better now. Thanks a whole bunch. Jay

  25. Henry Meisters-avatar

    I am an online tutor and was looking for a reliable meeting app.This app does always the job it was created for. While other social app such as Line and Facebook also offer a video call option, I experienced a lot of connection issues while Skype has worked flawlessly so far. Revised: 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.

  26. Onur Erkan-avatar

    There is a bug for a long time which no one takes action about it. If you have an incoming call when using Skype on multiple devices such as desktop & android and if you answer the call over desktop, call notification on android keeps ringing and does not go away until rebooting phone. It seems communication between different devices are not working well.

  27. Irene A.-avatar

    Password recovery process is terrible to say the least. Even to send code to phone proves futile, when the number is correct. Honestly you're taking us through unnecessary effort and turmoil. This issue has been there for more than a year. Review your password recovery process.

  28. Anton Yurchenko-avatar

    Anton Yurchenko


    When skype call is picked on another device, skype app keeps ringing and the notification won't go away even after the call has been finished, no response on the buttons either. The only way to get rid of that annoying notification is to kill the app completely. That is a pretty embarrassing bug.

  29. DHHR832-avatar

    The app was good. I lost my account back in 2018 so I lost all my friend's contact and I couldn't call them. After I created a new one it got removed again, I wrote the same password and it didn't existed. That happened 3 times and still happens when I create new account

  30. DrZ-avatar

    This is a very bad application, I installed this application 5 month ago, they asked for a credit card information. I used if a few days and the App says the first month is free. After that few days I didn't use it anymore but they have charged me for 4 month. They didn't send any in-app notifications for charging or emails, despite the fact that they have already the email. On the other side , the settings is a complicated one and you can't find where to go for cancellation.

  31. Penfold Effjay-avatar

    Terrible - This app does not work on my android tv box. Skype has downloaded but will not allow me to reach the sign in page. A pop up error message suggests checking my internet connection but there is nothing wrong with my WIFI or Ethernet connections. I guess I'm going to be even more socially distant from my family than planned.

  32. RAVI DUTT KUMAR-avatar



    This is a great app, since I started using Android phone, I have used Skype since then and the best thing about it is video and audio are very clean, which gives good quality, I like it. By using its app and I will always be in touch with it and I hope that things will come up on the sky better and the process will work and on the sky is the very good app,

  33. Sharas Games-avatar

    I accidentally created an account with my phone number, thinking I was adding it to my already-existing account. Unfortunately, that now means (according to Microsoft customer service) that my phone number can never be associated with my account, even if the accidentally-created account is deleted. One little mistake on my end that any other business would be able to fix now means that this app is less than useless for me. :/

    HOW IS IT AN EDITOR'S CHOICE APP! Totally abominable. Skype messaging sucks! It is so Frustrating! First of all, I do not get notified for my messages! Secondly, The app is lagging alot even though i have 2gb free Ram on my phone and no storage issues at all! Thirdly, I can not change my name and the layout for the messages is boring, needs to be more user friendly. not like you are talking to your boss who you spilled your morning tea on! Argh!!!!!!😠😡

  35. Jami Jones-avatar

    Will no longer let me log in. It says I have a "problem with my Microsoft account". This shows up for every email I use to sign in. I can no longer use this app. It would be nice to know wether this issue is associated with the device being used, or rather a fault hidden among the app itself.

  36. Bear-avatar

    It's Skype, what more is there to say? It was awesome when it launched and remains fantastic to this day. Calls are clear, video quality is great, and even halfway across the world I can keep up with friends without looking like a pixelated mess.

  37. Sharada Lali-avatar

    They eat up the money you load after a while. They send you email saying if you do not log in, you will loose your credit. If you miss to log in, it totally disappear. There is no way of talking to someone or getting an email address to send message. You are going looptiloop for hours on their site and find no way to contact them.

  38. Derek-avatar

    Good connectivity....holds a connection better than Whatsapp. Great for calling family, friends. Weakness: confusing user interface, cluttered logs, unclear how to commence call, menu navigation poor, in-call adjustments cause screen to disappear. Poor conference calls: No ability to schedule calls ahead, can't create link for broadcast to unspecified participants (a key failing...Zoom is better at this). Overall excellent for casual chats between people who have pre setup Skype IDs.

  39. Manju S-avatar

    This is actually nice but our voice is breaking for the other others and their voice is breakinng for us . If that is not there it would be nice. Also vedios they are not clear sometimes. if they two taken care that would be well and good. Otherwise to say this is a very good app

    They have stolen my money. I've had Skype accounts for years. Now I just got forceably locked out. Sign in won't work anymore with my old login even though my password is correct. Tried to change my password but Skype rejected the change. Insanely stupid programers and/or common thieves. Shameless.

    Very good app to have. Worked well for me so far. I bought a number subscription and have been using this to make calls when travelling in different countries. When I was living in a different country having a number subscription allowed me to call home with minimal costs. Recommend for people on the go.

  42. DOM Abernethy-avatar

    Great app which has allowed me to continue my business during isolation. Easily managed 4+ participants but wouldn't like more than 6 as background noise and picture quality starts to suffer. Occasional freezing of video can be rectified by switching off and on the video again. This doesn't interrupt the call which is a bonus.

  43. Letizia Spoto-avatar

    The best app for video call. I would suggest to the developers of this app to allow to see all the people participating to a group video calls when they are more than four. And it would be so useful to have the chance to retrieve a recorded video call that wasn't downloaded in time (30 days). Thank you

  44. Benedetto Altobelli-avatar

    There is a bug: My phone freezes when I activate share screen during a video call. While it is freezed the other person can see my video (camera, not screen) and listen to me. To "solve" I have to force reboot. I confirm that screen mirroring is working normally with any TV or any other device I'm using Android 10, Google Pixel

  45. polar bear-avatar

    This app is not at all good.... I created an account last week and today when I opened it... Shows that I have been signed out and when I again tried to sign in. It showed something went wrong.... I have tried a lot of times to log in but it isn't working at all....

  46. Katherin Loaiza-avatar

    It's a very good app, I've found it quite useful ever since I started using it. But I've found that, with the last update, it keeps changing my status from, let's say, away to online. Every single time. No matter how many times I change it. I don't want to be seen as online, why does this happen?

  47. Chris Newhard-avatar

    App isn't accessing the mic properly, people cannot hear me well during Skype calls. I think it's failing to use the "speaker phone mode" of the mic. Oxygen OS 10.3.2 Problem can be solved by using earbuds that have their own mic. Otherwise pretty good.

    First I tried to use my Gmail account. It wouldn't take it. So I tried to create an account. I typed in my phone number and name. It then asked for my birthday, but the screen was frozen. Nothing I touched did anything, except next, which told me that the date was essential, but did not offer any help in entering the numbers. So nothing works. If I could give this zero stars or less, I would.

    Doesn't rotate camera. "Support" is some weird guy who thinks the solution to everything is uninstall, clear cache, reinstall old version from shady website, and use outdated unsecure drivers. He's been giving that same advice foe this problem for 3 years!! What a joke! Dude, just fix the damn camera rotation in your app.

  50. Endeilon-avatar

    Recently app keeps sending me 2 notifications that i missed a call. But the person did not call at all. Quite inconvenient as other person halfway round the world and time zone 12 hr difference. It important when we do need to connect. I chronically trying to figure out what going on.

  51. Mike Martin-avatar

    Broken, buggy, piece of trash. It has the calling notification stuck at the top, even after the call had ended and there's no way to get rid of it without uninstalling the app. The accept and decline buttons both don't work and you can't swipe the notification off the screen

  52. Enrique Riveral-avatar

    Skype is very reliable. It allows people to interact, share screens, and documents unlike any other communication platform. It's the prefer business partner for most, and the best out there. However, just make sure that Internet connection is stable by having a good ISP..

    People can not find me. When I try to do a new account , as it were. Every thing is ok, untill! I put in my telephone number or my e mail address is being used. I must admit that this site is not the only place , I have this problem with. No wonder Google maps are littered with obsolete sites.

  54. Julio Toro-avatar

    A bit hard to work around it, when you are new to this kind of stuff. However once it is working it is great. I've never had an experience like this in my life and it was magnificent. No lag time in video or speech. I must say I'll have to use Skype a bit more often. Thank you Skype for a great product.

    The ringing sound is too painfully loud every time I make a call. It can't be changed. I'm using Galaxy S20 Ultra, it's shocking to see that something like this can happen on such high range phone. Ridiculous.

  56. Daniel Chae-avatar

    I love this app!! Skype is a really great app! I usually need to call my teacher on this, and it's amazing! Although, what I didn't like about was that my friend told me I was mute, but I was not! I really hope they fix this problem! Still a great app, highly recommend it!

  57. Sharon Smith-avatar

    The call was great but the app sucks. There are no controls for anything. Can't edit a contact. Can't delete a contact. Can't look up a contact etc. There is no settings feature. VERY POOR design. VERY user unfriendly. SUCKS!!!

    Skype minutes are nothing else than a scam. It looks like Microsoft needs to enrich themselves. My account got blocked from Microsoft after 4 calls totalling around 200 minutes. I had bought "unlimited Europe", where at least 2000 minutes are included.

  59. Shaheer Khan-avatar

    Not able to receive calls nor messages when the app is in the background (the Windows app receives calls and messages fine, but the phone app doesn't). This is a recent development - it was fine before.

    Always quality calls. Sometimes, if there are too many people on my network, my video will slow down, but overall A+ Plus, it's been a really nice way to keep in touch with all this social distancing and stuff!

    Since last update that app keeps ringing on Android even after I answer the call on my PC. After that it keeps showing the in call notification which is impossible to get rid of, just restart the phone or kill the app process. Very annoying.

    For some years Skype has been our connection to our remote grandkids, and they really know us when we fly out for a visit. Now with COVID 19, Skype enables me to continue doing my volunteer community visiting, and we're delighted how close it comes to actually being there. And it's relatively straightforward. Thanks, Skype!

    Keeps telling me that people havent been seen for day, then when i message the person, all of a sudden they are online and the notification goes green? Highly bugged and needs fixed, it used to work fine but has been doing this for sometime now

    The best app you've ever could have to connect with friends and group calls with small group of friends up to 50 join . Although skype for business will join to MS Teams but thanks to Microsoft still available for personal use. Video quality indeed is great. Highly recommend this app for your video call chat.

    Locked me out in a very important day and time just to get my number! I DONT WANT MY NUMBER BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACCOUNT there is no way my account got compromised because I have a tight security and only log in in two devices The app was so unreliable and keep disconnecting the call and cuts

    I have a Microsoft account still I couldn't sign in to skype, on giving my email ID and password, I couldn't sign in into it. So I decided to create another account using my mobile no. Surprisingly on entering the mobile no. it is showing invalid inspite of the fact that I am using that no. all the time. 🤷‍♂️

    I used for 2 years to call internationally. It was great and low rate. But the last weeks it s been impossible to make a call. Now I can't add credit either. Tried to call from 2 different accounts and 2 different phones. It has been unusable since then. Disappointed

    The "xyz is calling" notification persists even after the call was accepted or rejected. It can not be dismissed unless I "force stop'" the app from the app info screen. Please fix this, It is really annoying.

  69. Nate cuellar-avatar

    This app has constantly glitched out on numerous occasions whether on wifi or data it's always malfunctioning and freezing and most often echos over voices I'm so upset it's frustrating trying to have a conversation with someone and have to be confused the entire conversation because you can't hear or understand anything they're saying

  70. Zia Siddique-avatar

    There is no ringing when someone is calling me and my phone is set to ring. Also the notification for a missed call won't go away. You can't slide away the notification from the Android notification window like other notifications, it is 'locked' onto my notifications window.

  71. G G-avatar

    Won't let me sign in. Says there is a problem with my account and to sign in on a browser. I do that and there are no problems with my account in the browser. Specifically doesn't work on this app. Makes it useless.

  72. Cindi Connor-avatar

    When I log into to Skype, the app starts flipping screens when I answer the question about accessing my contacts. It doesn't matter how I answer the question - allow or deny - it does the same thing. So I can't use Skype on my Chromebook at all.

  73. Sean Monk-avatar

    All of my contacts have the wrong status, either showing as inactive or offline while I am actively talking to them. Spoke with Skype support who blamed everyone else and said they all need to update Skype..... You need to fix these bugs.

  74. Michael Minton-avatar

    App is 100% dysfunctional and unusable. Tried calling my mom - she straight up did not receive my call and vice versa. She made a new account, tried to call her and the screen just went grey with a hang up button but there was no attempt at a call being made. No ring, no connecting, nothing, just stuck.

  75. Vanita Craker-avatar

    This app is excellent, much better than the Zoom app that pnly lasts 40 minuts and cit the transition without previous warning. Skype is free and you can use as long as you need. I highly recommend it!

    The app has come a long way. With the recent covid19 crisis, all my doctors appointments are via Skype and my Doctor was able to display his computer screen on my phone. So he was able to show my scans and other medical information in great detail!

  77. Paulo Resende-avatar

    Needs work, Skyoe calls are interrupted by incoming cellular phone calls. The app should detect incoming calls and give an option like call waiting. When transitioning from cellular data to Wi-Fi audio is lost causing you to have to call again.

  78. Adrián Flores-avatar

    Please fix this mess of an app. Messages do not show properly on Android (incomplete), call notifications are permanent and remain after the call has ended (I need to force stop the app). The Windows app is worse.

  79. belgian wafu-avatar

    It's always connecting. You can't chat to a person without waiting for like 5-10 mins just to send a message. I have a stable internet connection. Fix this please thank you.

    It's great. Our meetings are so important, life saving really. We're so glad to have this continuity of contact during the Covid-19 crisis. The App is easy to navigate and everyone can join in thereby decreasing any sense of isolation.

    Skype is still a nice app. I give it only 3 stars though - it's incomprehensible how such a major app can include ads. Imagine Whatsapp displaying ads. It just degrades it's quality, becoming a second line app.

    Chat works just fine. Video calls work when they want to it seems. It seems that for every one good video call I have, I have three bad ones. I'm in a long distance relationship. I need something that works more often than this does.

  83. AHMED ALI HASNAIN-avatar



    This app has bugs First one it has very low speed in operation. The second when I got a call on Skype then it stuck s in notification area and does not go to clear but after restarting the phone it goes clear so check on these bugs.

    Useless. Unable to log in or create a new account. This is due to absolutely nothing coming up when it asks for region and date of birth, although why it needs DoB is still a mystery.

  85. Sally Nomanyo-avatar

    Am unable to sign in to the app. It keeps saying " oops there was a problem with Skype. Try signing out and back in. I have done that several times but it's still not opening.

  86. Nadim Kesserwani-avatar

    Bugs left and right - if i receive a call and answer it from my PC, the phone keeps on ringing - browsing my contact from inside skype is a headache - lagging while on char or inside the interface (btw my phone is with a snapdragon 855 and 8gb of Raml - ect..

  87. Dean Gonzales-avatar

    So far so good. Sometimes there is a delay, tho. Maybe it is my connection, so it would help if apps could show the minimum dl/ul speed they require for 'optimal' experience.

  88. Bee M-avatar

    I don't know why people don't use Skype for calling, the quality is superior to all others. The app just needs some fine tuning in the responsiveness area and startup time. Slower than the competing apps.

    I can't login on my phone,they keep on telling me,there is a problem so i should logout and sign-in again and i having been doing that but still facing the same problem over and over again......I want to know, what the problem is...

  90. Kennon Atkeson-avatar

    Call notifications never disappear if you answer on a separate device, the only way I have been able to workaround this is to turn the apps notifications in the phone off and on again.

  91. Kayce Klein-avatar

    I love Skype and I've been using it for years, but lately I have this issue where it cuts the last line of text at the bottom. We have to add a period and hit return to make an extra line. This is really annoying.

  92. LivvieLuLife-avatar

    The app worked well untill it said there is a problem with my Microsoft and I have had this app for 3 days I don't no what to do and it won't let me on unless I fix it, but I looked at the other reviews and I'm scared to try and fix it thinking it will eat up my credit card

  93. Bade Kalyani-avatar

    It's not working after 2 days and my account was automatically signedoff and now I can't signup .when I'm trying to sign up they r saying that they will send a code but it's not sent and again they are saying to sign up tommorrow .it is very irritating

  94. Mariella-avatar

    Fun to take snapshots, but the quality of video isnt great when video chatting a group. I like the messages come up on the side of the screen when in video chat

  95. noel weber-avatar

    Really good App for having phone calls. Only Problem: They really should turn down the sound when you are calling someone, on my phone the most quiet is louder than my alarm.

  96. Sara Kirimoto-avatar

    It is very simple, and the audio is very good, I think the only con is that it sometimes randomly disconnects or statics... Other than that I believe it is a pretty good app!

    Stable connection. But if you are in session with more than 4 people you can not see them all clearly. The 5th, 6th etc appeared as a little circle on the top of the screen. Please make it possible for the viewer to be able to see all the participants of the conversation.

  98. JC Stump-avatar

    Why charge so much though? Wow. That is so greedy for Skype to go and charge us so much. And they haven't even gotten all the glitches out. Only ONE star from me. Lower the darn price.

  99. Tonya S-avatar

    It was difficult at first, like trying to figure out how to switch my camera around to see me, instead of seeing my bedroom, & like trying to connect with new people. However, once I got that working I really enjoyed it!

    A lot of obvious features are missing. For example. You have a sign that there is an unread message. Clicking on it doesn't bring you to this message.
