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.

    Skype quality have been deteriorating for years after it was bought by Microsoft. However, password reset functionality tops my list of worst functions. The amount of personal information requested to do it is beyond comprehension. Then it involves "up to 24 hrs" verification process, which results in an email saying that information provided is insufficient to reset the password. This renders the whole process useless. I wish the authors of this feature using it regularly as a punishment.

    skype free im & video calls download Update, still perfect haha I am mainly off grid, no phone lines just using three network. However to call landlines and mobiles from a phone it is expensive. I instead use Skype to do all my calls and it saves so much money! I have the subscription with 100min for land-line and mobile which it perfect. If I need a land-line number I can set one up for only a few quid a month. So long as my signal is good it is a perfect call. Still using it years later and very happy.

    skype - free im & video calls apk I bought a Skype Number, when I call it is not the number you bought that appears. It is different numbers every times. So, if the correspondant you try to call happen to miss your call, he will never know or be able to call you back. And the app is just bad. Too slow, hesitating and always freezing. And no, it is not the phone. I hope you improve it.

    skype - free im & video calls download for pc Does not work anymore. Does not allow user to even login. And I had just added $$$$$ of credit. There is no one to even contact at customer service, because you cannot even login to your accounts via a browser anymore. Insane. I quit Skype years ago, but only recently started using again because of working internationally. Terrible mistake.

    skype - free im & video calls apk download 99/100 times... Calls are not being received... just missed call notifications afterwards! IF SKYPE actually IS 'WORKING'... Then, 'answer automatically' on call settings doesn't work... the phone rings! In my experience... if you have any other app open on your phone, SKYPE doesn't work! SKYPE is utterly imperfect... even with the best Wi-Fi or mobile data!

    skype - free im & video calls download for android Phone app won't connect to the Internet no matter what i do, despite having perfect WiFi signal. Please fix it already, so many more users have been inconvenienced. I'm on Skype since 2005 and still prefer it over zoom etc, but it seems to be sadly going down hill with the updates and bugs. If it's broke fix it! And if it ain't.. Why did you mess with it in the first place?

    free skype video call recorder for mac The app is so clunky and un-intuitive. Buttons are slow to respond or unresponsive. It's incredibly cumbersome to make calls with too many steps in the way, menus and buttons not clear and complete inability to edit phone numbers or use numbers from your contacts. I wouldn't be using it if it weren't so cheap and I didn't already have an account. As soon as a better option comes along I'm outta here. Yet another great product ruined by Microsoft.

    skype free im and video call app download It seems that notifications do not stay on screen. Which means if you miss a call/message you have no idea there was one. I have it set to have a lock-screen pop-up, and a banner icon and they disappear. They should stay present until dismissed like every other message app.

    skype free video calling Skype for mobile is a disaster. It is one of the best apps but only for PC's .the Skype for mobile gives u the worst experience , voice quality is not good ,if u have to switch off your microphone then u have to click atleast 4 to 5 tiimes ,sometimes the screen shared to u will not appear, actually if u swich any other aap for even a sec then back on u will not be able to see the screen shared screen,it takes a lot of data , u can't unsend the photos . word limit sucks .

    skype free video call limit I called from the Philippines and now from the US and worked fine and was able to conduct my business until I get my new phone chip. I was using Hangout Calls but was canceled but the calls dropped and there was a 5 to 10 second delays so was very difficult making calls. I am extremely pleased with Skype Calls and wished I used it sooner but I got it now and hope to keep it for along time. Thank you for this App. Luis Morales

    I've used Skype for years and really like it. Yes, I do pay to be able to call, but it's extremely cheap and the call quality is terrific. And, there aren't any irritating, loud ads that pop up whenever I use it. The one thing that does bug me is the fact that if I'm trying to text a number that isn't a phone number it doesn't send because the country code gets applied automatically and I don't know how to temporarily remove it. Otherwise, it's a great app.

    After the recent update I have not able to use Skype. I had an unlimited 3 months paid subscription, my Skype contacts are lost. I reentered some but can not call, it always hangs. I only get 60minutes of calls now. I paid $99 a year to Microsoft today, still can not make calls... still does not reload my account. It was fine for years. What is wrong with the update? More money, no service? Before I able to have just a paid Skype subscription without having to pay for a "family" subscription. ?

  13. vashthestampeed-avatar



    The grand daddy of messaging and video apps.. Yes they are newer more flashy apps. Some might even offer better video quality but you know what ? Skype just works. You can use it in almost any country on planet earth minus north korea maybe, and it just works. And always works. When have you ever heard that Skype was 'down'…? Probably never right? Or Skype was banned from x country? If you are conducting any kind of international business online, you need skype. It just works.

    I have international roaming included in my mobile plan, but I am out of the USA temporarily working remotely and needed to call an 800 number that was not accepting my call, there wasn't another number to call, to pay an AT&T bill for which I did not have login credentials so had to be by phone, after struggling like hell for 2 days, this is the only app that worked.

    Worst App. Same link works from one mobile and not from the other mobile. My meeting passed by without me. I started the meeting 10 mins earlier and waited whereas after 20 mins while i left the meeting and rejoined in the same link to see all 48 participants are there and the meeting was in progress.

    doesn't work properly on professionally installed Linux servers and workstations, does not work properly when user is administrator, doesn't work properly on low bandwidth connections, takes 30 minutes sometimes to connect when whatsapp connects instantly. disappointing. support is non existent, took 1 year to debug something easy. Microsoft is interested strictly in money, that's why they are alienating all their customers

    A great companion to keep in touch with friends and family: voice chat, video chat, sending files, virtual background, screen sharing -all works just perfectly. Provided the internet connection is good, there is no problem without a solution. Thank you for this app, just keep it as is!

  18. Migo-avatar



    App is super slow and laggy, it's the only app on my phone that lags like crazy so it's definitely not my phone. Update: this app is trash, keeps randomly going on speaker whether it's just normal call or Bluetooth headphones connected and changing my status to available so clients and co-workers keep trying to initiate meetings with me. Fix the damn app

  19. Sebastian Stavar-avatar

    The only reason to use Skype was for the better video chat quality. However lately, instead of degrading video quality Skype simply switches to audio only. This is beyond stupid for mobile where you are going to have signal variations. Will probably stop using skype altogether now.

    Skype, the early if not the original Internet free calls, app. Still works well. Especially with high speed Internet. One very annoying bug, it constantly resets the status to "online" no matter how many times you reset to something else. It either doesn't remember the user setting, or simply ignores/overrides it. So only 4 🌟

    Very good app.. Just that sometimes it keeps connecting and I think the "REQUEST CONTROL" Option must be present or else very good and one more thing very rarely I don't get the share screen option in the phone and once I could not share one photo or else superb app love it thanks for all your efforts in making Skype 😃😃... But the above changes can be made

    It is over all good for video calling and such. Buts it's very very buggy when it comes to sending videos via in-app messaging like sometimes it also freezes the app if you're trying to watch a video sent by your other friend... So yeah 1 star....

    The best for my international calls. I have to say that I have tused a few apps for international calls but skype has been the best yet for me. Rarely do my calls.get.dropped and always clear. Thanls to the developers, good.job.

  24. Vasco-avatar



    Installed the app in the phone so I can use the 60min/month free, but the app does not even want to "open". I open, click login and it stays there loading and loading for long time, nothing happens and I cannot login. Any solution? Already re-installed, rebooted, clear cache, but nothing. P.s.: Will change review score after some help.

    Doesn't work with App Gallery and anything without Google Play. That makes it incompatible totally with my SE Asian clients. This is a stupid move as a global strategy for Microsoft. Time to get with the program if Skype is to succeed on a global basis. Totally missed opportunity.

    I have been using Skype for years way before Microsoft bought it it's the cheapest way of calling anywhere in the world used to have a Skype number but never used it much for those who don't intend to use it much I recommend just topping up the balance 😉 the android app seems to be way better than the pc app when it comes to making phone calls

  27. L-avatar



    Way too laggy! Virtually unusable! My phone isn't the best but it's not bad either and it runs most apps just fine! (Oukitel WP5 Pro) *Update* It's now April 2021 and it's still the same! Audio clips do not play, loading emojis to send doesn't work, etc!

  28. Isabel Gravano-avatar

    Its ok but I use it to call my sister (she doesn't have watsapp) and she is only notified that I am calling her if she is already on Skype? This makes it pointless and I wouldn't install if you are looking to use Skype to call someone

    One of your worst apps and support ever , after finishing a call , the phone shows that I'm still on a call until i force the app to close , i have this problem for years now , and not to mention how bad sharing / saving pictures and videos with this thing is !!

    I am giving it a single star because to me safety and privacy matters, I am constantly getting random video calls on skype. If a stranger wants to talk to you they can just have the messaging option and right now it's 2:39 am IST and I got a video call from a stranger. This is ridiculous!! How can you allow a random person to video call and audio call another random person without their consent? I would really appreciate if you guys take action against such things and improvise user experience

    UPDATE Mar 2021- thank you skype team for listening to feedback, i can now send messages with the enter key on my chromebook, huzzah! we've come a long way :) i can't edit messages by pressing up on the keys but honestly i'm not that fussed about that, and if that ever gets patched too that'll just be a nice bonus. EDIT: there is an issue where when switching to a conversation, it sort of jerks a bit like it's loading the chat or something even if i've just been on it. a little problematic

    Annoying ringing while making a call- is too load and not being able to mute or change it. Can't change the location of incoming video- it must be only in upper right corner, before you could just drag it- not anymore.

    Services are good. But need improvement in video call and it's quality, it's to dark to see anything in low light. And poor network quality shows all thw time where i use 4g network or 3g network.

    Appreciate the review warnings about "the latest update." I would want to skip the update until complaints subside as a result. However, I see a notation for Skype on my phone, "Last updated March 25, 2021," so maybe it was done automatically. (I don't remember authorizing an update, but I might have.) Whether it was or not, I've had no problems except occasional poor connections, which weren't necessarily Skype's fault, and a wish that I could Save more information for some of my "Contacts."

    Unfortunately, some of my colleagues still use skype. And when I'm not near a laptop, I have to use android Skype app. To say that it is bad is an understatement. It is horrible. It reacts so slowly, so laggy to everything. Every button click or any change takes so much time to run. Is my camera on or off? Why can't I see myself if it's on? I have no such problems in Meet or Zoom. Skype devs, you should do a better job

  84. TAHLIA KING-LI-avatar



    Well it's good for one, and I get to Skype many people and I really enjoy it.Though at some times it glitches a tiny but it's still an amazing app that I love using all the time.And it's free for once and doesn't require much details at all. I recommend that everyone should try.many devices can download it so if you can't get the messenger apps like your friends do you can always get them to download Skype and you do it aswell and then you two can talk together without any troubles about apps!

    Been using Skype off and on now for 20 years. It does everything and more that WhatsApp did before I deleted it because of the privacy laws. The only thing I don't like about Skype now is when someone calls you automatically press the big green button and it takes you to a video call, I would prefer if somehow you could select it to be an audio call by default.

    I am using this app to deliver online lessons to my students since March, 2019. I can rate this is the best app for online teaching. No technical errors till now. Also you can receive calls in case of emergency in middle of the class and continue the class. Also there is no need to create meeting link everytime like Zoom. You can use the same link for one subject for the entire semester Don't look for an alternative product just use Skype. Thanks to the team for making my job much easier.

  91. ayumeii.-avatar



    My Skype experience is brilliant! I like how you can use this app to call or text your friends, and get this, you don't even need a phone number! All you need is an email address, and once you have that ready, you can create a Skype account for free! No bills, no fees, it's 100% free. There is one minor detail I would like free, though; a lot of the time, my messages take ages to send. I don't really know why, because my internet is absoulutely fine. From a very happy customer, - Shiloh

    Excellent when everything works. Ambient noise cancelling needs to be implemented at some point as I can often times hear the mice humping in the walls on the other person's audio feed. That or I hear a double loop of my own voice relayed back to me. I continue to use this as I'm relatively old school and don't need all the fancy features other programs and apps provide. This is simple, easy to operate and does it's intended job without convoluting itself with extra features like many others do.

    Found 2 bugs for your product. 1. Being online in several devices. 1 smartphone and 2 desktop (my laptop and pc) with the same account. When I set my status as INVISIBLE in my phone. IT DOES NOT UPDATE TO MY PC AND LAPTOP TOO. So when I get back to my laptop the status will be back as online. 2. In my phone, I am using a not too old android. Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime. With android version 8.0.0. EVERYTIME SOMEONE CALL ME...I CAN'T PICK IT UPP !! I TAPPED THOUSANDS TIME IN PICKUP BUTTON !!

Android to android calls work normally, and pc to pc too. now take this info and do some fixing, I'll test if it is working soon, and if it is I'll delete this review.

    I often use this to do overnight calls with my long distant partner, but it rarely ever works. I can't use another application(like check a text or open Instagram) without Skype "disconnecting" and ending the call. It is not poor internet connection because other apps like discord or YouTube work just fine. On other occasions there's an error that causes a very loud white noise sound. When this happens I have no audio for him (he can't hear me) and it stinks. Hopefully bug fixes soon.

    Skype free internet phone calling has greatly improved over the years since I had first used it in 2002. At that time internet connections were very poor and the sound quality inconsistent. My advice is to get a good internet connection or Skype won't work well. Also there can be problems if your devices with platforms aren't compatible with each other such as Android, Chrome, Windows 10, Apple iOS. Once you get it set up it works brilliantly, especially with Skype's latest updates. Enjoy.

    The apple and the swevice is great. Yet, there is a little issue of the interface not showing an answer button while it is ringing if you were using the phone when it tang.

    Nice features, but lacks UI and notification consistency. Chat media store is among the worst, not loading all pictures and videos from a conversation and taking a long time when it does. You also cannot send voice recordings on the PC version. Audio/video quality is OK, but it does not take advantage of fast networks although HD calls have been promoted for a decade. Skype does not allow you to use it in split-screen mode with another app which is a big drawback for me.

    Too many updates that are only destroying this app. It used to be genuinely useful and at this point it doesn't seem like much hope. Calls sometimes just don't work. They will crash immediately or not let me adjust the call volume at all. If you want to look back or find an important file you sent, best of luck! It only really lets you go back 6 months. Please just download discord instead. The only nice thing it can do is voice messages, which really shouldn't be its only saving grace.

But the issues I'm having (no notifications, call quality isn't great, never EVER connects regardless of internet, and the little loading circle is practically ever present) I thought were just my phone. They're not. They're affecting everyone I talk to on there. C'mon, guys, I just wanna talk to people overseas.

    Right now I do not like that when I set my status to invisible on the android app, it will set me to online if I go check a message. It should remain on invisible until I take it off. This way contacts are not looking for a response when I am not in a place to give one.

    My problem is with the user-friendliness of the interface. Just not great at all. Calls are superb and a competitive rate. PLEASE give us the opportunity to edit a phone number copied and pasted into the app. Sometimes I find a number without the country code, but I can't place the cursor at the beginning to add it once pasted. This is is just basic app design. Sorry for being blunt.

I am sure that it is something that would be so easy to do.

    Great app, works well. MAJOR PROBLEM though...hand it to Microsoft to completely ignore full common sense functionality. I can add people all day to chat groups, but there is no way to remove people. They have to remove themselves. Looking through the web for assistance there's supposedly a way to /kick people....but it isn't working for me.

    Terrible experience! I'm paying for Skype and yet Skype keeps using my SIM to make calls and I am not dialing from my phone! Also, Skype is preferring my 2nd SIM which is roaming, and I've set SIM1 as my default. Why is a paid Skype subscription using my SIM anyways??!!! Voice Chats don't load, they hang with a loading animation, clicking again results in an Exclamation. Billion Dollar company, useless service. I hate whatever changes or updates have been made as of late.

    The translation mode would be much easier to use in the mobile app if you could just click the message, instead of long pressing it to see the original.

Sometimes, the sending of messages takes a day and drains my phone's battery

    Great app, except it is difficult to add names to phone numbers that call you or even to create new contacts. I think this is deliberate because it keeps asking for access to your contact list. They dont seem to understand that people have business contacts apart from family contacts. Why does every app want access to everything on your phone? Other than that, it is a great app.

    Ths app is great overall, but I got a serious issue that started to really annoy me lately. Whenever I'm trying to write a message to someone and the message is somewhat longer, the text simply disappears and leaves me with the first two words I wrote. At first I thought it was a glitch that happened when switching from portrait mode to landscape mode but it occurred even when my screen rotation was off. Please fix this as soon as possible as it is very frustrating to rewrite entire messages.

    This app works well, however there is a feature that needs to be added, many people have mentioned this over the years. And it is the "Read" message feature. Just like messenger, it would be helpful for the chat to have a read message feature, regardless if the participant is using the app or windows version of skype, an icon or a checl mark needs to be added so we know when someone has read a message in chat. Recently there has been something of that sort, but only when the app is used- it needs to be added for skype windows also.

    Getting slower and slower. My phone is optimized. So it's the app. It fires up slowly so I miss calls. Often I have to wait 10-20s when tapping on a button. Overview n handling could be improved. Often there's no connection made n u hear the Skype melody forever. Ring again n it's fine. So it's not the reception. Sometimes there is a connection but I neither hear ringing now picking up. Now the recent call history is missing, the last 10 days were there n then gone.

    I think that overall Skype is a great app/service. I love the fact that when my mobile data service gets reduced from 4G LTE speeds to 2G speeds, which is 128kbps, double the speed of dial-up, the call quality is still pretty clear. I will say though that there are times the messaging takes awhile to come thru. I do notice that updates do make the situation better. Keep up the improvements. Great app overall.
