  • Complete Garbage

    By brian's work account
    This app is garbage. It constantly asks me to log in even though it’s running in the background. Push notification are hit or miss. The app doesn’t sync with my PC, so I frequently miss conversations. When the app does log in, it’s slow to refresh and shows conversations from days ago as “unread” even when I replied to the messages from my PC.
  • Improved service over the past year

    By MFM79
    When I started using Skype for business, the service was a bit faulty: problems with connection and sound. I’ve noticed that the service has improved significantly over the past year.
  • Frequent stability issues

    By Mitch910
    Many of my users complain frequently. People often have to drop off and reconnect
  • Missed messages

    By davep0706
    I miss messages all the time with this app when I’m away from my desktop. Notifications tend to come through all at once and never when the original message was sent. Please fix this.
  • So Bad!!

    By echofive0706
    Everyone is using this app, but no one knows why we are using this app. It is the absolute worst, no matter which platform you are using it on. Message delivery is spotty at best sometimes. Past conversations only appear on the device you originally had them on. Why do we need to start a new conversation every time we reach out to someone we already have been messaging?!? Why can’t this be as good as iMessage, Facebook Messenger, or Slack!! At this point my best hope is that we all go to Teams sooner than later.
  • Horrible

    By m_tech
    Doesn’t work with iPhone XS Max. The app just hangs on the logo screen.
  • Useful!!

    I have been using this app for many years and i have observed a lot of improvements in term of call quality, video and file sharing. There still is still more work to do to improve the user experience.
  • Great - when it works

    By Keggman12
    Ever since I have been using this app on my phone (probably 2016) I’ve never been able to trust it to not drop VOIP calls. Just today on latest version, iPhone XS, great connection, background app refresh enabled. It seems like when it’s time for the screen to turn off, Skype business will terminate the call. This has been going on for last couple years, several phones that have been new installs (not backup restore into new phone). Super frustrating. Will this app ever be reliable for VOIP on IOS? Ever?
  • Totally unreliable

    By SwimmerLobbyist
    Drops calls. Interrupted when calls come in, even after I’ve changed my preferences to prohibit that from happening. Video support is unreliable. Extremely buggy. Obviously in need of a refresh or even a reboot. How long do we have to wait before Teams is available as a legitimate replacement?!
  • Need to work on reliability

    By Doubtfull shopper
    Tools are great but only work 70% of the time
