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.

No share screen in iPhone?

Nowadays, because of the pandemic of the coronavirus has stopped us from communicating face to face, we use communicational apps, such as Skype. It is really important for them putting "Share Screen" in old iPhones (and new iPhones) and at the Skype's old version. These will benefit students all around the world to share their screens so they can share their ideas, essays, projects etc. I have the iPhone 5, but I didn't find "Share Screen" in the bottom "More Options" during my Video call and it would be highly beneficial and recommended for anyone to put "Share Screen" in Video Calls

Issue with notifications

It’s a great app no question about it. But, lately there is an issue with the notifications when in status “busy”. They do not seem to get pushed, and as a result they do not show on the home screen - not even as a counter number.

Please look into it, it’s really frustrating.
