Needs work. Generally the app is ok, but don't expect to click on a notification and expect it to show you the message you were sent. If you do that, the app will open and seemingly load the message until the end of time and it will be lost. The message will also not be viewable on the desktop client (as I'm assuming it mistakenly thinks you've viewed it already on the mobile app).

Finally! Awesome update. App os faster than ever, stable, delivering messages correctly. What could be improved/added: 1) Read + deliver status (just as WhatsApp) 2) Font size could be bigger/customizable 3) allow file transfer (attachment, camera, photo, contact, etc)

Not working as expected

Too slow, doesn't join conference call and heats up the device. Unreliable while on the roads. Need it to be more efficient and reliable for daily usage.

Agree with other reviews. Clicking a notification doesn't take me to the conversation. Also, the Skype icon is consisting since it looks like the other Skype

Would like to see the ability to link a personal account to business. It would allow the ability to have one Skype app installed.

If I want to check someone's status and dint mind reloading the app 2 or 3 times to do so... IT works, if I want to start a chat and don't mind reloading the app 2 or 3 times to open, great. But if someone I trying to get a hold of you, forget it. Crashes and take so long to load from toast notifications its useless. Its faster to drive back to my office and use Lync on my desktop.

This has been a very disappointing experience. Most of the time I open a notification, Lync fails to load the conversation. I expected more on a Windows phone (Microsoft makes both the OS and the app. They can do better) Leaving Lync open on my PC aphonend phone at once, results in everything getting missed. I have hope for the Skype for business update.

First of all, why offer an inferior version on the Windows platform when you have loads more features on an Apple product?!? Could it hurt to at least allow calendar integration? I hope "Skype for Business" at least resolves the constant logoffs, missed toast notifications, and horribly slow performance... Come on Microsoft, what gives??? Way to leave your mobile out to dry!

The integration with the desktop app is almost nonexistent. I should be able to easily switch between the two and see completed conversations from either. Instead of it aparts random which device new conversations get sent to, and I have no way of seeing all my conversation history in one place.

Unfortunately, you can no longer delete all messages or bulk delete. No reason to remove it, now just filled with old messages. Not smart
