    I already have a Skype account why do I have to create a new one with a Microsoft e-mail? This is pointless and annoying.

    Microsoft developers WHATSAPP with you? You're giving me good VIBERS!! How could you turn an 5* app in a 1* overnight? Please fix this silly issues asap or you will lose the small faithful users that still use Skype.
