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.

it helps you get skype

it should download skype or skype should be a app. we can download instead going through the process.... which is still easy just, you know.. options and access.

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.

No tablet app?

I hate how this is worse than the windows 8.1 app. It's just Skype for the desktop. The user interface is too small and and it's designed for desktop. For Skype being a mainstream program, it boggles my mind why an app that works nicely for tablet users wasn't used such as the 8.1 app... disappointing. For everything Microsoft has said about trying to be cloud 1st experience, this doesn't work well for touch devices.

The worst version of Skype...Seriously it's their own product and they screwed it up a lot: You can't see the account information of yourself, your description or your real Skype account name. You can't see the others real Skype account name. You can't see your history recording for example 1 month ago... And also the notification is coming too late all the time. You can't send pictures or drawings or people during a call, you can't look at drawings or pictures during a call; you can't make a Skype group call or join one...you have to ask someone to call you which is annoying for both the parties.. You cannot delete skype people (or I'm just too dumb to find it out) the only option is to add or remove from favorites...So seriously... Microsoft...your app on the apple device is good but on windowsphone..it's bullsh*t. Unfortunately there's no other option at the moment for us windowsphone users..

No app version for Windows 10, even says there is

There is no app version for the Windows 10 and I cannot install this because I do not have some features, even though I have all of the features listed in Additional Information. I like to use Skype but I wish they came out with one for Windows 10 and not the desktop version as the desktop version is slow.

Poor app, poor skype quality

No transparent tile, does not integrate well with people hub, buggy and slow. Lacks integration like apple facetime. Cannot share photos directly from camera app, no Cortana integration. Not a showcase app for microsoft. And quality of calls is appalling compared to apple facetime!

The app worked just fine before the latest update, Lumia Cyan I believe. Then when I finally updated my phone, it has a lot of bugs. It never gives notifications, when I'm in the app it tends to not show when anyone sent a message, it doesn't show messages occasionally, and it sometimes becomes out of sync when I log in. These are just little bugs, and even though they can easily be overlooked, it's rather annoying. I just don't see how Microsoft was able to do a thing like this, did they not test the app?
