Update review Sept 3, 2015: While Skype is owned by Microsoft, it really doesn't work well with Microsoft Phones. Very often Skype phone didn't received message while I was getting messages on PC. Video or voice is the same, while it's ringing on my PC, the phone one is dead silence. Original review: I don't need video call, I don't need voice call, I just need the basic to receive message and notify me reliably, but it CAN'T. Switched from Nokia N9 which has Skype integration working seamlessly on text and voice call and simultaneously with PC Skype. But the experience of Skype on Windows Phone 8 is a disaster, not to mention it can't eve run at background on Windows Phone 7.8

General, this is a good program. But, many time, the text in editor box wasn't clean out after press send. And I have to delete it manually. This is a simple but very annoyed. That's why I give 2 stars rating.

As a long time user of Skype, I can't believe how poor recent iterations of this app is. Notifications don't work. Background functions don't work. Will not let you access voicemail. Paid for Skype phone number, however this app never notifies you by ringing phone. Microsoft has done a terrible job managing this product. Now bloated without basic functionality!

Lots of features are missing.. Why the hell Android version is a lot better than this one? You should give the real experience.. same as the desktop version, and please try to focus more on texts as you do with calls and videos. You failed to provide a simple nice and easy experience on your own platform.. Watch out for synchronization problems.. Do you call this an app ? Seriously?

PISSED :(((((((

I used to LOVE the Skype app for windows. I loved the features and things I could do with It that were impossible with the desktop version. After all the updates apparently it just directs you to go download the desktop version however. this makes me very very angry because if im on my desktop say, playing games, I cant split screen it with my game that takes up my entire desktop area screen. I used to be able to do this and it was very easy and very nice to stay n touch with people in and outside of my games while still playing the game.

Skype up-date

Trying to up-date Skype is an exercise in frustration and clearly underlines once again that Microsoft is its own virus. There were never any problems with updating Skype under the previous ownership. I've installed all the app store updates that are available under 'Skype' and when I power up my machine it still says I need to 'get the update' BUT THERE ARE NO MORE UPDATES LEFT TO INSTALL. By the way, I have a Ph.D. in computer science and have worked in the industry for decades, so I'm not clueless with the workings of computers.
