App interface is decent. Easy to use. Performance is poor. App locks up and crashes often. Sometimes only audio works. Needs some major work.

This app would be really great if it allowed me to view and send pictures or videos on it, but instead it leads me to the web version, which defeats THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THE APP :) . Group chats and stuff work pretty fine tho I guess, so it deserves 2 rather than 1 star

I hope I'm not the only one who is aggravated with the new Skype desktop app I really miss this app. For me it is way easier to use and had a better design

Constantly crashes. It crashes more when I'm in a call when I'm trying to get to several conversations. Now I'm having trouble when I'm getting messages. I'll see it in the preview and 80% of the time it doesn't show up and I have to close and reopen the app 1-2times and 20% of the time it works, I would have to open a new chat I already check and go back to the other chat I got the message in just so I can see what was said. Works 97% of the ti.e. Also, make an option when you hold dow on a contact to JUST delete them and not just strictly block them. I don't want to block people, just remove them off my friends list.

Great. You update it for other platforms, but now on yours. Way to go guys. I can't even make a group call ( not video ). The app is slow, notifications barely work.

I think this app is pretty good. I dont know why everyone is leaving bad reviews about it. The only problem I have is that this is outdated and everytime I try to view a video message it brings me to the internet to do it. Also you cant add special effects like you can with Skype on apple products. Other than that, this app is awesome! My only request is just please update Skype.

The app works great when it is open, but I don't get any kind of background notifications. I don't know when I get a new message or call from anybody without having the app open. Why is it that the Microsoft operating system has a no-good version of a Microsoft app!?! Insane! Also, when I try to "upgrade" a call to Skype video, my phone says that I have to install an app first. Skype is already installed! Fix this Microsoft!

This is the best app for personal and professional use. But there are some issues like.. 1- Instant notification doesn't work properly. 2- cannot share files. 3- developers need to work on the size of the app. It takes time to open.
