  • Can’t use from my iPhone without being connected to WiFi

    By Det 123321
    I live in the country and am unfortunately limited to internet access via my cellular data plan. I can use my phone as a hot spot to connect my laptop to Skype... but I cannot use my phone directly. If I try to use my iPhone for Skype, I have to be connected to WiFi... this doesn’t work for me so the app is basically useless.
  • No message alerts... see ya

    By ttboy60
    I don’t know what happened to this app, but there is no push notifications of messages to the phone. The only way you know you have a message is to purposely open the app. I’ve had messages sitting there for a week not knowing I received them. Skype does not offer any acknowledgement that this is a problem so therefore they don’t work on it. Time to move on to Facebook I guess

  • International Convenience

    By reaveler...
    I have had a Skype account for over 10 years now. As a US service member I have found that it’s the most convenient way to keep in touch with my family. Being stationed overseas I don’t have to worry about my family not being able to talk to me since I have a local number that they can just dial and reach me anywhere in the world. It alleviates the frustration of trying to get an international phone plan so they can talk to me.
  • Reliable calling, non-intuitive interface

    By KJSfromSeattle
    I’ve used Skype for years, and have almost always been pleased with the quality of the voice calling. It often works where other calling/video apps don’t as well. My *big* complaint about Skype is the ancient, non-intuitive interface. Things you’d expect like touching a name and having it ask you if you want to call them (voice or video), using your contacts list (vs everybody in the world on Skype), adding a name & number to contacts, and much more is too often a process of thrashing around to try to figure out how Skype wants you to work. The interface needs a dramatic overhaul — and rigorous UI testing! — so that it’s easier to use, offers more than one path to the desired outcome, and it works *intuitively* like other best-practice current interface designs.
  • The app works well.

    By Needssearchfunction
    The app works well overall. Spam calls and messages are a nuisance
  • Great for international travel

    By Evil Porpoise
    I bought a domestic number that allows people to call me at local rates even though I get the call anywhere in the world on Skype. Plus I can call them cheaply or for free if they have the Skype app. Quality is often better than cell phone service. Skype also does group meetings of unlimited duration and works great if the groups are not too big. Because it works on almost any device, I wish more people used it instead of WhatsApp or Zoom.
  • Great app that has had consistent improvements

    By scooterjp
    I’ve used Skype for over a decade, maybe closer to 15 years. It has been better at some times than others, but it’s now very solid, reliable and easy to use.
  • I love this

    By xXPhoneGirl2019
    I really love this, great if your friend doesn’t have an apple phone so you can’t text or FaceTime as well. There is only one problem, the reactions. I love the ones there but I would love it even more if we could react using all of the emoji things. Plus, I would like if I could react to my own texts. Thank you for this love it but pls take my suggestions 😊
  • Available garbage!

    By Shinji_109
    Why in the everloving hell does it always reset my status to available as the default whenever I start the app!?? It's infuriating! Would give -5 stars if I could🤬.
