    Works better than before.

    This is leaps behind any other mobile version. You cannot join an ongoing group call nor can you call an individual. This is very poor quality taking into fact that Skype is from Microsoft and this is the Microsoft windows phone... It's way better on iPhone.

    App won't even load up
  • by Marcelo 2014-12-02
    Doesnt work !! With Lumia it stays connected even when you want to cancel the call. This app works better at Apple phone and Android than Windows phone which is a shame since its owned by MS please improve and put some updates online ASAP.

    This stupid app uses my mobile data even if wifi is switched on. That too 5MB in few seconds. God knows what its transferring in the background. Still i cant receive calls, looks like some spying patches added by Microsoft to send back user activity or something. Even my skype calls don't hog 5mb for a minute.

    The Skype app has stopped working completely on my windows 7 phone. I can't even sign in anymore. Fix this, please! I can't re-download the app, either.

    The update creates black screen problem when make voice call
  • by Dorian 2014-11-22
    App does have some black screen issues when video calling at times. Overall the messaging works incredibly well considering I have many Microsoft products that are running Skype at the same time. A nice addition would be to have the ability to caption photos sent through Skype
