Not good

The "push notification" slider keeps turning itself off, so I usually miss conversations. I'm constantly having to log in every time I start the app. It doesn't sync conversations from other devices. I don't have this much trouble on the iPad version.




Platform: Mobile

There's a lot of design flaws

The one thing I like about Skype for Business, is that it's encrypted. That said, most messaging systems are now. What I don't like is that it seems to break messages up into new conversations even when they are a continuation from an old conversation. This causes me to lose context of the conversation. Also, unlike Google Hangouts, which will allow people to send messages to someone who is offline, and leave it in the message window for the next time that person logs in; Skype sends an email with no easy way to get to the message thread. You find yourself digging through a history of message threads just to get a piece of information. It also brings back messages I delete. Overall, I wish this were more like the regular Skype, with encryption. This product has a long way to go to compete with Hangouts, WhatsApp, LINE,, WebEx, or any other app on the market. Maybe this is more of a meeting app than a chat app, to which I'll say, "Remove chat from here, and go do that right."

An app that worked last year

As with any Microsoft product, when it works, it's okay. Unfortunately, it seems as though this app doesn't connect to my meetings, most of the time. I'm just tired of Microsoft making a product just to have it, but it doesn't work.

Desperately need a new app

This app hasn't been updated for ages! It's not UWP and it's the only Lync client across all platforms that still doesn't support modern authentication. It's such a shame that MSFT once and again is providing new functionalities to the iOS and Android versions of its own app.




Platform: Mobile

Carga lenta.

La app carga muy lenta y casi nunca abre y no carga los mensaje. La notificaciones no llegan a tiempo y una vez la abres se muestra en blanco el mensaje.

Update it!! Need Windows 10 version ASAP

I use this everyday at work- this app seems so ancient and not very stable. Now that you updated the standard Skype app to UWP / Windows 10 - do the same for your paying customers in Skype for business




Platform: Mobile

Old version was better

Messages are delayed, if they even arrive. No obvious way of voice only meetings. Auto disconnects tablet skype session. The old version was much better.




Platform: Mobile

Rarely works

We need desperately need an update to this up (particularly a UWP). The app rarely opens and when jt does, it takes forever to load anything. Messages rarely come through correctly. The app almost always freezes before/after/during a call. As a productivity utility, this sets me back terribly.

Stopped working

Since the latest release of windows 10 mobile, app has completely stopped working. Enter my credentials and keeps replying back they are incorrect. Use same credentials on my desktop, no problem. Productivity has gone down the drain.

I need to constantly uninstall and reinstall this ap to get messages others send me. If this wasn't required for work, I wouldn't use it.
