  • Would be nice if it was remotely dependable

    By TravyBaby
    Unreliable app. To have anything close to a working app, you have w to have four bars of service and full wi-fi strength. One or the other doesn’t seem to be enough. The app constantly shows Connecting in some effort to reconnect even when both wi-fi and cell signal are at their fullest. Cannot use the Skype meeting option while traveling because it will drop.
  • No complaints

    By Swampalicious
    My employer is moving from Skype for Business to MS Teams soon, which stinks, because the cross-functionality between the app and the PC version are really humming now. Get it while it’s still a thing.
  • Accessibility Is Awful

    By Deacontoney
    I fully expected Skype For Business to function much like the regular Skype App. As someone with vision challenges it is difficult to read the small print. Where is the ability to enlarge font the way it can on pc? Where is dark mode? Its disappointing to know users with these conditions were not considered when creating this app. I am happy to change this review to 5 stars once accessibility functions are improved.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Jeweible
    Won’t connect to the server. Hasn’t worked in months. Reinstalled, same thing.
  • App keeps crashing

    By Neeeeeeeeeee987
    It used to work fine but since last 2 weeks it keeps crashing if I try search for a contact.
  • This version does not work on iPhone 7

    By ddeeter
    6.26.0 comes up and the display goes away like it crashed, however the app is still running if you double click the home button. IPhone7, IOS 12.4.1
  • Perfect and some improvement needed

    By Vadivelan Dharanisingh
    I love using this app for my meetings. The reason I have four star is because of the issue I face while connecting to meeting. I have set up a recurrence meeting, As a host whenever I try to join through this app before the meeting time(5 mins earlier) the bridge doesn’t connect, this issue happens frequently.
  • Could learn a thing or two from Unify Circuit

    By Gerry_Gaston
    I love Skype for business on the desktop. But the mobile is extremely limited. And the experience of trying to move from desktop to mobile is not seamless like Circuit. You are better off completely closing you desktop client before launching mobile (and vice-versa). Truly a disappointment... Even more so their the pitiful mobile outlook client.
  • App closes when searching

    By tkdguy03
    Since the upgrade to iOS 13, if I try to search for someone in my organization, the app tries to search and then completely shuts down.
  • No issues

    By Hoosier242
    Works very well. All calls have very good clarity, no audio issues.
