    Microsoft is the worst Windows Phone developer. Terrible. Bugs bugs bugs. It doesn't work, closes by itself.

    There are many issues while using this app. 1. Login facility with my Skype id is not available. 2. Do not provide any Suggestion from the contact list save in the phone. 3. While calling shows the symbol of video call, but not able to make call. 4. Version of this app is not matched.

    Why won't calls come to the device?

    Contacts do not display secondary phone numbers, but when you dial the numbers directly Skype recognizes it. Please fix the no show bug.

    It no longer lets you log in without a live account. I have had the same account for forever. I'm not making a new one just for my phone.

    Only best free communication app for all the platforms like Windows, Mac, Android, windowsphone etc. I am using Skype since many years. Happy 😊 to see that Microsoft is improving Skype continually. Thanks Microsoft, app is very useful for message, voice call 📞 and video call.
