Installation Difficulties

I finally got this app to work in this phone but I have experienced further difficulties to install Outlook webmail and Skype webcam/audio/text in new devices as are my friends and relatives up to the point that some get blocked for example because their systems can only run old versions of windows such as Vista. I can not yet install Skype outside the Outlook in my MacOs Sierra notebook; however, in that devise it is already working within the Outlook webmail.

I realise that those legacy systems owners are not contributing much revenue and earnings to Microsoft but you should keep in mind that being able to communicate with them contributes to the value perceived by corporate and private users that make procurement decisions about IT hardware and software.

With more people being reachable by WhatsApp and other Messengers but not through Skype I perceive as less value to maintain and update my Windows equipment and to by new.

Expired credit? Really Microsoft?

I’m not sure what your game plan is... stealing a few dollars from my credit every year causing me to go through a painful process (wasting time) to get it back. Pathetic behavior. Started after Microsoft bought Skype.

Your app is becoming increasing irrelevant. You might want to keep what few customers already use Skype by not irritating them. Stop being a greedy corporate tyrant and leave our cash/credit alone. I keep Skype for emergencies. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. Think for a second. As you strive towards the subscription model, don’t alienate customers by grabbing a few dollars every year.
