    From the looks of things - I'm not even going to bother with this garbage. Too many unnecessary headaches imo. 👎

    The only problem I have is answering a call she the phone is locked.

    Garbage! Absolute garbage. Skype is by Microsoft. Windows is by Microsoft. But still they manage to screw it up. Good job

    Quite like how well the app works overall. Notifications seem much improved lately. Sometimes in a chat though, after bringing up the keyboard, the text box is either hidden under the keyboard or just not displayed.

    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
