Description of Skype

Skype keeps the world talking. Say “hello” with an instant message, voice or video call – all for free*, no matter what device they use Skype on. Skype is available on phones, tablets, PCs, and Macs.

• Video calls – Don’t just hear the cheers, see them! Get together with 1 or 49 of your friends and family on a HD video call. Watch everyone’s smiles and cries when you tell them “We’re engaged!!!" 
• Chat – Reach people instantly. Send messages to your friends, grab someone’s attention with @ mentions, or create a group chat to plan a family reunion. 
• Share – Send photos and videos with your family and friends. Save shared photos and videos to your camera roll. Share your screen to make travel plans with friends or present designs to your team.
• Voice calls – Camera shy? Make voice calls to anyone in the world on Skype. You can also call mobile and landlines at low rates.
• Express yourself – Liven up conversations with emoticons, click on the “+” in chat to send a Giphy or images from the web, and annotate images with words, lines and more.

*Skype to Skype calls are free. Operator data charges may apply. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection.

Skype Pros

Always reliableIf you can’t get them on Skype you can’t get them at all. The new interface takes a little bit to get used to..NatongoVersion: 8.34

Skype ReveiwI think Skype is a really good app but when I want to chat with my friends I can sometimes glitch out of calls and sometimes the emojis are limited also sometimes it gets confusing when it says this person was seen 21 minutes ago but they messaged me 2 minutes ago I’m not sure why this is happening but it can get very confusing. Also sometimes when I try to send pictures they turn out white and don’t send. Also once you have sent a message to someone it shows the profile picture but when I am on calls with my friends they say that they never saw the message. I would also like to say that sometimes it tags out what I want to say and the predictive text is so annoying I try to send a simple message to my friend but then it says something completely different. Over all I think that Skype is a very good app and the safety rules for kids are amazing all I think is that there need to be a couple of changes. Thank you for reading my review..Angua43Version: 8.68


Skype Cons

Riddled with bugsPros: The call quality is generally quite good The emoticons are still the best around The layout is simple and easy on the eye Cons: Status (online, away, etc) is never correct, people can be chatting with you and it still says “last seen 3 hours ago” It has a tendency not to update chats and give you chat updates unless you physically go into the app itself Randomly seems to answer a video call with or without your video and then even when you physically turn your video on, it still doesn’t work Cuts short gifs you add to chats so they don’t display in full, completely voiding the whole point of the gif Decides when it’s going to work or not. Often times end up using WhatsApp to chat to the same contact to test if it’s the WiFi or data, and it turns out it’s just Skype being awkward Controls are just unresponsive at times, the interface LOOKS good, but it doesn’t behave well (and no, it’s not my devices, I’ve used Skype on the latest iPhone, iPad, and iMac, and it does the same things on every device Too many more to mention. It’s just not good..WorkingclassgeniusVersion: 8.62.1

CMPThe first review I ever wrote was on Skype and would have scored it -0 if the option had been available. Since then, I have barely touched Skype having switched to WhatsApp like so many other ex-Skype users. I started using Skype when it first came out on 2002(?) and it was the best VOIP system around by far and the easiest to use. Since the current crop of developers got to work they have turned a much loved and much used tool into an unmitigated disaster that barely functions and is nightmare to use. The developers won’t listen as is evidenced by all the negative comments the new Skype is getting and won’t make any effort to either rollback the awful upgrades or return to the original Skype’s simplicity or functionality. Which is what the vast majority of (ex) users appear to want. As a consequence Skype will continue to haemorrhage users, will fail to attract sufficient new users and will eventually be consigned to the scrap heap. Such a shame which could be avoided if the egos involved in Skype’s development left well alone and listened to those who have most used the program in the past..Kingtune1Version: 8.32
