  • Long Time Skype User Love It!

    By Jptufo
    I'm a long time Skype user - well over 10 years. I have 1,478 contacts on Skype. I just got off an 83 minute call in Greece initiated by the other party. The call was FREE to the both of us-Amazing! It was crystal clear. I know people whine and complain about Skype but, in my experience, they're the same people who whine and complain about everything in life. They're malcontents- negative, critical, naysayers, despicable, unforgiving, rude, unhappy, faultfinders, whose opinions should be discarded. I learned a long time ago that I need to be willing to give everything I do a minimum of five years to achieve the best results and that commitment has served me well all these years. People give up too easily, too quickly and that hurts them. Skype does extraordinarily well for me, my business relationships, my clients, referral partners and prospective clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Well done. You're the best!

  • Very good but has some glitches

    By Kopter Doctor
    I love this app and use it frequently but the glitches are annoying. I use the translator and sometimes it works and other times it does not. I have to either hang up and call back or send a new translation requests. The video does not always work. I have to close then reopen the video often to get it to work. If I get another call and place Skype on hold si cannot get Skype to come off of hold and I have to disconnect and call back. This is the best app for video calls with translations. I wish the translation worked better but it is very good for what it is. I am very happy to have it.
  • Took me 30 minutes to register

    By sunsetikk
    They made me go through different captchas which are very annoying and it kept sending me back even when I got right answers. Literally only reason I had to download this and register is because people I need to contact are so old they still use skype.

  • Slow and laggy

    By Mason ho
    This app is incredibly boring and slow. It’s not a safe app to use, there are many scammers. Also Skype will lock your Microsoft account for no reason and lock your Skype so that you cannot possibly log in. I absolutely hate this app and now all Microsoft products, I do not recommend it!

  • I can’t figure out how to get live support

    By sanguine_penguin
    I found a virtual chat support bot that wasn’t very smart and I found an online community. How do I contact someone on the phone?

  • spam group chats

    By vrtt
    i keep getting added to spammy group chats. why is there no setting to block group chats by people not in my contacts? i found a privacy setting in contacts that might fix this but why is it also no in the privacy section?
