Used to be great but going down hill. Latest upgrade is worse than ever. Used to give u a live update on call times does not do this basic function anymore,
Full of bugs. Trying to enter in a new contact is error prone and problematic.
If there was comany in competition that can do landlines calls through the Internet I'd leave them in a shot.

Skype 8 - an example on how to burn your money. Soon no one will use it.
Review by Dagadou Derrow3 weeks ago
Skype used to be good and fairly easy to use, now it’s horrible to use, every time you try to make a phone calls it’s logged you out of the app and literally takes half an hour to log back in while you go though all sorts of crazy menus and prompts. Why doesn’t the iPhone app allow it to remember usernames and passwords. It’s almost like they’ve made its as bad as they possibly can as a joke to see how far they can push people before everyone gives up with it. What a way to run a business 🤦♂️
It’s horrible, I hate it!

It used to be the best chat software, simple fast and reliable until Geniuses at Microsoft took over. Now it is absolutely unusable, buggy, impossible to login with the correct password, well .... just like everything else Microsoft creates.

Total crap, and they close your account in no longer than 5 days, without any explanation. And even though they have "recover your account" option, that's doesn't do anything. You enter what they require to recover your account word by word, and you get a message "your account couldn't be recovered. There goes your money...skype stole it again

I friggin' HATE Skype (and Microsoft). For several years I'd used Skype. I live out of the US and I paid years for a virtual US phone number. Now recently I had severe computer problems and skype (and every other program) was uninstalled.
Yesterday I was able to reinstall skype on my computer. I logged in with my username and password. I'd previously had about $8.00 of credit, and I had just been charged for the next year's worth of my virtual phone number. Neither of these showed up on the new installation. No matter what I tried, I could not retrieve my credit or phone number. Skype kept insisting that I buy a new phone number.
I had skype on my phone, but had never used it. Today I tried that. Now it did not recognize my password, and twice I tried to change it. No way to see what characters and/or numbers I was entering, but I was never successful in creating a new password. I kept seeing "passwords don't match." I think that was a lie and they were just keeping me from logging in. And of course there's no way to actually contact Skype/Microsoft--just their worthless "community." I HATE SKYPE. THEY'VE RIPPED ME OFF FOR OVER $50.

I am using Skype for my daily communication with colleagues and it never fails me. Sound and connection is always good. I dunno why there are so many negative feedback.

Not so bad but has a lot of bugs and updates are mostly annoying.

I've been using Skype since 2010. For 9 years, it gives me a convenient way to keep in touch with my families and friends. In addition, as a freelancer, it gives me a convenient way to work. We usually use Skype as a platform to teach, for interviews and meetings. Can be easily accessed via a computer or mobile phone + user-friendly. Kudos!

How could something that was SO good initially have become SO crap??!!
Review by Ktbellla3 months ago
This is honestly the worst version of the platform. I need to use it for work and it is absolutely appalling. My friend who is in bootcamp for coding has made a more impressive application than this. I lost out on a job oppurtunity because it is impossible to find people.

Skype just updated to latest version - totally dreadful- communication problems, cannot understand how to add new contacts as nonsense list provided from input. The most user unfriendly update ever. The previous version used just a couple of months ago worked perfectly.
Now unable to communicate with friends in Denmark.

Review by Havenmore3 months ago
If I can give it 0 start I will. We used to have Webex and every meeting will take place without issues. Ever since our company switched to Skype due to cost, every meeting we have, we run into issues of audio not working intermittently, slide show getting stuck every time, recording not always working either, not to mention external participants unable to use it to do presentation to us. All in all, it's a very bad product and I can't believe this is a product that's allowed in the market. I know you get what you pay for but it should at least be something that works 99% of the time, not 1%.

My old skype finally stopped workiing yesterday and I was forced to use this new abomination. The connection is crap, the facility of splitting windows non-existent and the options sorely limited. Thanks microsoft for making a great program as useless as your old messenger!

Logging into Skype has turned into a real debacle. The incompetent MS team has created the perfect trap for the elderly user. The trap is set by something as innocent (and very frequent for the elderly) as forgetting your own password. This is used by Skype as an opportunity to suggest to the user to create a MS account with which to log into Skype. After the unsuspected user agrees, the trap closes in. His entire history and friends list in his old account are rendered inaccessible. Moreover, even years later when the user tries to log into to the old account, his current account is rendered inaccessible. Skype gets into an infinite loops saying that the user account or password are incorrect. This happens even after the user changes the password of his current account through sms authentication. This entire thing us cursed. Avoid!
