Skype is Improving ... Still a Work in Progress
Overall — I am very pleased with Skype. I’ve used it now on a regular basis (making 5-10 international calls) for the past few years. There are constant updates — so what I write might change (for better or worse .... ) at any time after this Review (which I’m writing on October 29, 2018) — depending on whether an Update improves or complicates matters. Usually updates improve — but not always. Most of the time, the technical aspects of my connection are pretty good — but sometimes they are so poor, that I have to leave Skype and go to another application. I WISH there was a way for me to identify WHERE the problem is at such times (ie, with my connection; with the connection of the person I am speaking to — or with Skype). But overall, connections are BETTER than they were a few years ago. Overall, the system of organizing contacts is fairly efficient — but sometimes a bit challenging on non-computer devices to identify and classify contacts into an easy-to-find grouping. THANKS for continuing to work to improve this app! — :)
Such great Quality
I have to say that Skype is one of the best app to call and to text. It is so nice to be texting and call people on the same app. It’s so annoying to always needing to go to one app to another. I also like the emojis and moving pictures you can send to your friends and family. The only thing I think Skype needs to work on is to make sure when you flip the camera around whole screen doesn’t go black and doesn’t show anything because then you’ll have to restart the call and see if it works again it can be really annoying. But that really isn’t a big deal just change it please🙏. This app rarely malfunctions dad which is a great thing. I totally recommend this app for people who want to make it easy to call people around the world. The one thing I think they could add to this app is that you could me have fun patterns on your face and do activities during your call. Overall I have to say this is the best app effort to call or Skype and text especially for your kids.
Notifications are disappearing??
I’m not sure what it is. The notifications will come in on my home screen,but when I go into Skype itself,I don’t see any of the messages or missed call etc. showing up in the chat history. Sometimes I’ll even call someone and the call just won’t go through. The person on the other also says they’ve been trying to call,but no call ever came in on my end either. This has happened several times with multiple persons. Because of that,I’ve missed calls and messages that simply don’t even appear in my chat history. Not to mention,I’m on iOS but my friends devices are android,so it seems less of a platform issue and more like Skype just needs to fix something in the app right across the board.
Other than that,the call quality is actually ok. Gets muffled whenever it claims the connection is poor,but I don’t complain about that. Completely missing/disappearing calls and messages is not one I can overlook though.
