Skype for iPhone App Description

The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, supercharged with a ton of new features and new ways to stay connected with the people you care about most. What can I do with Skype? • Messaging made awesome: More than just text. Send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons, Mojis and more. You can also respond to any message from your contacts with reactions. • Great for groups: Add your favorite people and start chatting. Use groups to plan together, play together, for staying in touch or just for hanging out. • Call everyone - Skype, mobiles and landlines: Free* video and voice calls make it easier to stay connected with friends and family. You’ll also enjoy low calling rates to mobiles and landlines worldwide with Skype.  • Never miss a moment with quick capture: Quickly swipe to capture photos and videos. Make them your own by adding emoticons, stickers and annotations. • Share Highlights: Keep others updated with Highlights from your day. React to any highlights with awesome emoticons or send a private message about that highlight. Your highlights only stay visible for 7 days to your followers. *Skype to Skype calls are free. Operator data charges may apply. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection. Upgrading to the new Skype may result in the deletion of content from older conversations. To save photos and videos that were previously sent or received in an older version of Skype, save that content to your camera roll/photo gallery before upgrading to the new Skype.

    This application consistently hangs on my 6s. The video would still work, but not the buttons or the touchscreen. Have to either do hard power down or the other side have to disconnect.

    No you don’t. Skype is getting shittier by the day and you don’t care. Instead some product idiot thought it was a great idea to use the Skype brand and product as a Snapchat wannabe. Total fail.

    The new design is truly one of the worst things I've ever seen in software. Worse than even Clippy. I'm not surprised that this also comes from Micro$oft. - Why does Microsoft think their dead platform's UI design and theme is appropriate for iOS? Why doesn't this app follow the iOS User Interface Guidelines? E.g. when deleting "chats," one has to long-hold to get a list of options, which is a Windows Phone convention. This is insulting to the platform and confusing to the user. Typically Microsoft. - If you use a VPN, Skype won't work sometimes. Why not? Does Microsoft want to collect and sell private information or use this information for "targeted ads" like Google and Facebook? - Why am I being constantly bothered with notifications about useless new changes? I have eyes. I can see Skype has a new ugly user-hostile design. I don't need to be bothered by unwanted notifications. - Why can't I remove the recent calls history? Does no one involved in ruining Skype actually use any other app? This is an essential feature that Skype is missing. - Why are my contacts listed in two places: Calls and Contacts? If the same information needs to be listed in two place, you've failed. Or is it that the young clueless designers who ruined this app have just discovered the concept of a phone call and are compensating for their own lack of knowledge? - What is "Highlights" and why is there a need for it? This isn't Snapchat or whatever new toy the kids are using today. If I wanted a highlights feature, I'd use Snapchat not Skype. Plus they keep putting garbage "news" in there begging their users to tap it so their engagement numbers go up. - Why is there a tab at the bottom of the app that's actually a button? And why is it a shortcut to the camera? I would use Instagram or Snapchat, or pretty much any other app, if I wanted to send pictures to people. Skype is a telephony app and should prioritize that functionality. The fact that there are developer responses asking people to tell them about these issues shows just how clueless Microsoft is about what Skype is or how people use it. It's either that or they knew and went ahead with these disastrous changes anyway. Either way it shows a complete lack of awareness and respect for users.
  • Still doesn’t have two important legacy features

    Update: Now slightly less than terrible, but still lame. They simply ruined how it works to try to make it more like WhatsApp and Snapchat, which nobody wanted or needed. Sad. Skype remains useless to me because it still doesn’t have a single screen which shows only my friends who are online and available to chat right now (or what their other current availability is, such as away, do not disturb, etc.). I’ve got no interest in using Skype to chat like WhatsApp or Snapchat. Just bring back that old feature, the one that still works in the desktop version. I’ve got so many friends who don’t even use the app anymore because of this. Meanwhile, we also can’t sign out without having to do a full sign in by retyping our username. Why can’t there be a persistent cache of recent usernames for those of us with multiple Skype profiles? Pain in the butt.

    I live this app because it make more easier my life when I try to call my family. And I can receive call from them as well.
  • Skype stole my money

    Skype clawed back credits I paid for, intentional sends you in circles to try to reactivate it, and removed the deactivation button in-app so it's impossible to regain or use your funds.
