Both Love It and Hate It

I love the basic program. I hate the lack of security for it. I want to opt out of public search. If I want to skype I text, email, snail mail or call someone and give my contact info.

Microsoft Messenger

Default Windows app for video & voice calls; also serves as a messenger app (messaging functionality has been integrated into the system). Worked great in Windows Phone 8.1. On WP10 (vs WP 8.1) Crashes occasionally and seems a little sluggish; notifications seem to take that little bit longer. Wish it had: - More options (profile, etc) within the app (They can easily br edited via Edge / default Browser). Windows (10) Phone. Lumia 630.

Reinstall to get notifications to work. Still the worst version of Skype. Too easy to call someone on accident. Maybe confirm before actual dailing would be nice. Make a better version already. Do you want windows users to buy an iPhone?

1. The cam feature on video calls is subpar and in the event of problems you can't sign out to let it reset without shutting down your entire system and that makes no sense just for using Skype.

Should be able to receive calls even if the application is not open. It should run in background as it does in laptops and pc's. It is a great inconvenience to make a Skype call who is not online.

Needs an update for 8.1 I use group chat the most and it's bad, slow at getting messages.. Plus they need an option to sync email contacts, I dont need everyone on my phone on Skype.

Visually looks nice but is incredibly buggy on Lumia 735. I cannot rotate horizontally so typing is slow and frustrating in vertical view, messages don't appear in real time and sometimes take hours to show up. Really hoping Microsoft fixes these bugs since Skype has so much potential.

Great app. Clear voice and video. Good notifications. Now if only file transfer feature was added, I'd give it 5 stars. Update Dec 5th 2014: Was in the middle of a Skype call when the app updated automatically!! How retarded is that? Could the update not have waited till the call was done? Update Nov 4th 2015: Still lags but way more stable. I like the improvements but the versions on other platforms are much better and constantly improving too. I can now use this on a daily basis & not throw my phone in frustration. The drawing share feature is cool but not really useful.

Poor application

Go to use it. Tells me to download newest version to use application. Did the download. Skype still does not work. Terrible integration with Windows 8.1. Would never use this except my granddaughters use it to talk with me. Shame on Microsoft and Skype management.
