Group Video Messaging Introducing Skype Qik (say “quick”), a free* video messenger made for capturing moments and sharing laughs throughout your day. Set up a group and immediately start shooting and swapping videos. Send something to crack your friends up, or show off a new dance move—whatever you want. New messages are added to a chat that you can watch like a movie with a single tap. Qik even lets you erase your video right out of the chat.** Don’t just send just text or photos. Go full-video with Qik. What can you do with Qik? • Create groups in a flash: grab a bunch of friends from your phone’s address book and start a private chat. • Erase your message and it disappears from the conversation.** • Keep it fresh—messages are automatically erased from Qik after two weeks. • Start a conversation any time—no login, usernames, or passwords needed. * Mobile data rates may apply.. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection. ** It may be possible for recipients to capture and save videos elsewhere before you delete them from Qik.

I want to say its a must have app and give it the five stars but I can't. Great, fluid app that works well for what it says. Quick video messaging. But this app needs to go in a direction soon. Needs: -Text. -Send pictures not just videos. -Notifications. -Mood messages or story. Other than that great app just needs more features and fix notifications.

When i try to enter the conversation i have with friend it only shows the blank white screen. It sometimes happens, even a lot. Please do concern of it Where is the update? If too much gap apps from other platforms, at least you can prioritize make ur apps better on ur own platform.

I don't understand the purpose

The app doesn't function well and separating it from the actual skype app doesn't make sense Just accept that snapchat reigns supreme

Lumia 635- start out recording, and hit send from the intro page. Fast, easy, easy,and fast. Did I mention easy? Go for it. If you're sending a video to a potential BF or GF, edits and re-records are...EASY! Wtg Skype. Don't need to be a Skyper to install or use Qik. impressed.

Since snap chat isn't coming to windows phone Skype qik should have picture option rather only having a video option

Really needs a LOT of work... Does the "Skype" name wrong. Not a fluid and consistent experience. Nevermind the poor quality... Some videos fail to send. Sent videos are not loaded if the account/number switches phones - creates double entries for those contacts. Oh and a whole lotta "oops, camera isn't working" msgs. Really like the idea of this app - especially with no Snapchat, but the Qik team needs some help.

I use this app daily with my girlfriend. It's a great concept, and really fun. Sometimes the app is slow to resume, and new message notifications don't always work.
