Editors’ Notes

From the new baby to the latest sales figures, Skype makes sharing our big news better. Anyone can start calling, texting and video-conferencing—or even dialing landlines—thanks to the intuitive design. With zillions of Skype users to connect to, it’s one of the most useful apps on our iPhone and Apple Watch.

When you’re calling may drop!!!

This is a great way to communicate with your folks or loved one! But at times it’s nuts! WHY , because it crashes and at weekends is not good at times so after literally seconds it’s over before it starts! But don’t loose faith because it’s an app and it’s free! But at peak demand it’s poor as it’s so heavily dependent on wi fi or you’re internet speed or the service provider that you use. I still like it but it can be frustrating when you need or loose connection to your caller! I don’t have a fix but they Microsoft support need to sort this out ASAP which after 2 months has not changed in UK! Other countries in Europe have a similar situation but have higher call rate success! The moral of this is be prepared to call dozen times to get yourself call time and video call is very poor quality and as such crashes more than the calls so it’s mainly the phone and messaging service that is really only of such a good service to use. Uk customer experience who calls European countries.

Skype Contacts online?

4 stars it’s really good it has many features and I love the mojis as well. It’s amazing during quarantine where I can just talk with my friends and my family. Also it’s nice as you can add people while your calling (unlike FaceTime) and I think MOST of the time you won’t have a problem......

The reason I gave this app 4 stars is because it’s sometimes a little bit hard to hear what the other person/people are/is saying. Also it’s a little bit slow, mainly when you turn the camera.

Now to my main, usually Skype have colours when your friends are online, been online recently, or off. (Like WhatsApp has last seen and online and messages do not) but it said green so I text my friend, and then I called her, it’s still showing green, and then she texts me “can’t call I’m painting and I’m right in the middle of doing it” I ask her if she’s been online while she’s been doing it and she says no. Then again it’s only happens about 3 4 times but I’ve only had it for a 2 months. Please fix this thanks!!!
