My biggest complaint is that anyone in the chat can do whatever they want with it. One person can start a group, and another person can change the name, picture, group members, etc. Which means anyone who wants to be annoying can just remove people for “a joke” or whatever. Anyone can kick you from the call or the group, no matter who that person is, or whether they’re toxic or not. I tolerate them because they’re not all bad, but then they pull something where they try to remake the group, and remove anyone who disagrees. Only the one who made the group should be able to remove people from the call/group, and edit it in any way.
I know that isn’t the app’s fault, it’s the person’s, and that the typical advice is “just don’t interact with that person” but in this situation that’s not possible. It’s a group where everyone is at. The entire “friend group”. While a new group can be made, there’s nothing stopping the same thing from happening again/continuously. Please add a function where only the group maker can screw with the settings, thank you.
I use Skype Credit to make international overseas phone calls since here in USA long distance lines are very expensive with the country that i get in touch with. I m trying like 10-15 deferent phone numbers and I got like 2 through able to make phone call all others were like blocked by Skype?!?!?!?!? This is outrageous!!!!! So Skype says I will decide who you going to call cuz some of them i will block!!!!!! On top of that there is no contact number to talk to the costumer service from Skype. I am the one who suggested package and subscription to Skype and so i am regretting it. Skype you all are failing. I thought you were supposed to connect people.
I had to use Skype for a work thing because of coronavirus. First it wouldn’t let me recover my old account. Then when I FINALLY made a new account it told me that it will not work on my chromebook. It would not let me delete my account either since I wasn’t on a Microsoft computer. So then I tried it on my phone. I once again tried to recover my old account. It would not let me. So I tried to make a new account. Once again no luck. I wish Microsoft hadn’t bought Skype. The reason I originally stopped using Skype was because Microsoft bought it. I will never use this again if I don’t have to.
Skype has been around for years without any major updates. There are newer applications such as discord and zoom who came who are already more advanced even though they came way after. My biggest concern is the lack of features with the camera, more specifically a zoom in feature. I want to be able to zoom in and out while using my rear camera to show something instead of having to move myself. The calls also end unexpectedly by themselves. Other than that the Application is still good. But due to its lack of improvement over the years I’ve switched to zoom and discord.
I used to use Skype years ago when it was predominantly a texting app, and I’m not sure what went wrong. In this new version, adding new people is convoluted—do I text them? Why isn’t it working? Do I send a QR code? How do I teach my grandmother what a QR code is? After 45 minutes of trying to hamfistedly connect with someone—both through QR code and through synced address books—to no avail, we gave up and uninstalled this unintuitive disaster. I’m sticking with FaceTime, and if my contacts don’t have an iPhone, that’s too bad. I won’t be using this again.
What a useless design in the app when you try to order credit it just says “your order was unsuccessful” without any mention of what went wrong or how to fix it. I went to Microsoft Live to make sure my payment method was up-to-date. It is. Still doesn’t work. Then the Microsoft advice for getting credit says to follow the prompts to use the App Store to buy credit. There are no prompts. Nor does there seem to be a way to buy credit in live ms live store. Who designs this thing? Works for calls until you need more credit and there is no way to buy it.
Trying to log in with Google and I keep getting an error with logging in with a Google account. This option should either be removed or you should work with Google to get this working. I’m not going to use a web browser to troubleshoot or fix the issue. It needs to all work from the app.
And when it doesn’t work and gives an error, there’s no go back button. I have to force close the app just to start over.
Getting started on using your for the first app should be very important. People will give up if it’s not easy to get started.
I have been using Skype for many years. Since my mother doesn’t have internet access I have been purchasing credit to call her mobile number. Well a month ago Skype decided to block her number. The message I received when I call is “contact blocked by Skype”. I already tried to see contacts I blocked and my mother is not in that list. I confirmed my caller ID. My internet connection is great. I tried to talk to someone from Skype and that was not an option. I guess that now with the pandemia that is impossible.
Been using Skype for years and the app as well but for a couple of months now, it’s not dinging me or showing me someone messaged me with the 1 in the red circle. I have all of the alerts for the notifications on all of them. And I have to manually go in the app and check to see if someone messaged me. I have heard the dings occasionally but the ringing for like voice calls works and video calls. It’s just the messages and if someone called that isn’t showing up. Anyone else experiencing this?
I have been using Skype for over two years now and this is just sad that your app can’t even do what it was designed for! It won’t let me have video calls, and won’t let me answer incoming calls! Not to forget that it doesn’t notify me of any incoming calls! My Boyfriend and I use this to communicate for face to face calls and the fact that we can’t even do that with an app intended for this kind of communication is absolutely ridiculous! Your app needs a major update and it needs it now!
