  • Keeps Disconnecting

    Using it iPhone 6s plus. Communications with the office drops every five minutes or so without any warning. Happens to both Wi-Fi and LTE.
  • Sync is lackluster and notifications are a menace!

    Ever since I started using the mobile app, it's completely unpredictable where my messages will be delivered to, and I frequently lose them entirely until they show up in my email as 'missed conversations'. Can't tell you how many times I've been sitting there chatting with someone and one of their messages randomly will never be delivered. The latest fun thing it's started doing is delivering me notifications for ever message...hours after I already received them on desktop. Of course it waits for a new message to show up, the. pops up a notice for *every* message I've received today before finally showing me the new one. Just nearly vibrated my phone off the desk with 13 simultaneous notifications for messages I received over the past 12 hours.

    Used to work but now it doesn’t. I get occasional messages about 8 hours late. Something changes in a recent update for iOS or Skype. Is anyone even trying to fix this piece??

    I’m new to this app, as is my workplace. And by new, I mean I’ve only been using it for a week. The syncing issue between what my computer sees and what my phone sees is a glaring flaw. That’s been mentioned though. As for what else I’ve noticed, this app is poorly optimized for the iPhone X, where the message box for sending an IM often doesn’t let you select it because it’s obstructed by the home button slider. And I’ve noticed that even after receiving a message, it is significantly delayed in the messages and history box. But my biggest problem with this app is why in the hell does jumping straight to the received message from a notification automatically put you in a message box without the message you’re responding to in the box, just in case you want to see what you’re responding to? Why is this basic feature (which has been around for years) totally useless? Now let me be clear: I don’t mean replying within the notification. I mean when I select the notification and go to the app with the sender’s name at the top of the screen, there is no message. And if you attempt to send a message in this chat box, you create a brand new thread. What?! Did you try?

  • The Worse Communication Tool for Businesses

    By JazHunt
    After so many years, Skype for business is still the worst communication tool available. I can have a long list of problems and annoying things of this “business tool”. Microsoft needs to focus on redesigning this piece of garbage. It is certainly not good for the productivities. Consider a different application for your business. I can’t understand why it can get 4 stars.
