Useless on Win10
Prompt to download the desktop version. Desktop version constantly nags "Would you likecalls and Skype links to always open with Skype for Windows desktop? If so, click Yes and on the following screen Select All and Save." No matter what option you pick, check "Do not ask me again" or not, it always asks this when Skype loads. Useless app, annoying Desktop version. This didn't happen in Windows 7.More

Why, MS, why?
The MS 8.1 Skype app was great and easy to use. But on Windows 10, no Skype app is available. This app merely prompts you to download the Skype for Desktop app, which is terrible to use with a touchscreen or on a tablet. And now the Skype for Desktop app comes complete with highly annoying and terribly intrusive ads. Seriously, MS, your app developers leave a lot to be desired for this opening night experience of Windows 10 apps. If I could give the "Get Skype" app less than one star, I certainly would. This is a terrible insult to users of the Windows 8.1 Skype app: -5 Stars!More

By far the best multi use communication app in existence. Has been the leader in video calls, now with the chat and picture share functions...i prefer Skype any day over WhatsApp. Modern UI, reliable connection internationally... Oh, plus you have to luv the animated emojis!More

Please bring back the app.
I'm not sure Why a company like Microsoft would remove the more advanced version of one of their mainstays, especially a product meant to compete with Apple's "Face Time" but to remove the modern, sleek, touch enabled version of their app at a time that they've heralded as the biggest mass update and online distribution of all time is beyond me. Why have you removed such a user friendly and modern app from your store? Why have you only allowed the download of the desktop app, an app which seems to display all text in a pixelated, lower resolution form than the rest of my system (I mean, really...)? At least update the desktop version to allow for higher resolution screens (I have a spectre360 QHD but I've even tried lowering the resolution to HD to no avail).More

DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS APP!
ARE YOU SERIOUS? (JUST LIKE THE OTHER MSN APPS) Why would you discontinue this app! I mean don't hide behind excuses such as "for a better Skype experience" and just admit that you are all BORED to take care of an app. Look this was a pretty useful app as it meant to be used by touch screens and now with the desktop app, that part goes away and the touch gestures become more inaccurate. Just a stupid stupid stupid decision. MAKE UP YOUR MIND MICROSOFT! MAKE UP YOUR MINDMore

won't run, says update, no update available
Computer runs on Windows 8. Skype used to work. Today (July 31st, 2015) "oops, there's a problem because you're using an old version, click here to update". Clicking takes me to the Windows Store, choosing update Skype: "no updates available". Tried deleting the app and reinstalling, same message.More

I loved using the Skype app before the new update, it was an awesome way to keep in touch with my friends! It worked perfectly and was super easy to use! But, the "new and improved" update is the exact opposite of what it calls itself. You can't keep it open alongside your desktop so you an multitask, the graphics are horrible (seriously, they look like they're from the early 2000s), and you have to stare at annoying ads all the time. I'm going to have to find a new way to talk to my friends if they don't make the app usable again. You could at least let us have the option to use the old app if we don't want the terrible "new" update. Thanks a lot, Skype...More

Desktop Version is Terrible
The app was awesome and I'm sure it would've been fine with Windows 10. But the desktop version is terrible; not only is it a lot slower and it has a lot more technical problems (THE MICROPHONE SETTINGS ESPECIALLY) I tried getting help today and even had someone remotely access my laptop and all they could do was apologize. I'm not blaming the person who helped me but either a new Skype update that is compatible with Windows 10 or bringing the app back would ease most of us unhappy users.More
