    Can't call my mom on Thanksgiving because of a restriction on her phone. 😞 This is the first time I've had this problem. Usually call her on Skype, but calling her directly from my phone will not work either. They changed her number on her and now it's restricted.

  • nat_larimer N@ Larimer (@nat_larimer) reported

    this year I'm thankful that my boyfriend knows more about Skype and Zoom technical issues than I do so he can take the tech support calls

  • eduserrano Eduardo Serrano (@eduserrano) reported

    Question: I have a remote setup here, my NLE video output and monitors all connected into the ATEM Mini, zoom/skype is not cutting it in terms of resolution/streaming. Is there any service that could get a better peer 2 peer connection? Streaming directly to an NDI hardware?

    @jstn @noahkalina Maybe the three of us start a new podcast that’s only about drugs but Noah and I get everything wrong and you try to correct us but Skype keeps cutting out your audio. It’s called Broken Doors. Please like and subscribe.

  • USEmCee USEmCee. (@USEmCee) reported

    @beeredbrewer I can use open office if that's an issue or they haven't figured it out yet tbh. As long as it has a camera on it for Skype type stuff etc and I can do administrative stuff, I'm pretty happy.

  • mikewiow MikeW (@mikewiow) reported

    @SkypeSupport On a business call. Overtime someone new presents, I lose the screen and have to sign out and rejoin. Why is this so difficult? Never an issue with @zoom_us

  • AndrewEyedea Skateboard Cat (@AndrewEyedea) reported

    What the **** you guys use Skype? If you are having issues I would recommend Teams. Skype stinks. @LandauDave #AFairOne #compoundmedia

  • NorthIrishMike North-Irish-Mike (@NorthIrishMike) reported

    @vapourcure I can't use skype any more without my computer screaming at me and everything slowing down to a crawl

  • HaveFunBiz Bethany Johnson (@HaveFunBiz) reported

    @SkypeSupport Can you please tell me what is going on with your connection to Microsoft. You have closed me out of Skype and your STUPID System to log in with my user name or email is not working? What's with your satanic code of 6666 that does not work. MESSAGE ME URGENTLY

    Same people who message or ring you the second you login to skype for business 😒

  • erickirkland Ericc (@erickirkland) reported

    Hey @Skype your ”tier 3” support SUCKS. I have spent over 70 days now on a simple major bug I found and no one will do anything but give me simple troubleshooting tips. I’m done with it. Keep your shitty app shitty if you don’t want my damn help.

  • VenomKitetsu Venom (@VenomKitetsu) reported

    @jasonrantz Alotta congregations are doing mass Zoom/Skype gatherings. There a particular reason that wont work in lieu of the absurd lock down restrictions or does God not hear prayers that come from a household? I know this all sucks, but there's ways around this.

  • sparkybakewell Crystal Tipps (@sparkybakewell) reported

    @SkypeSupport hello. Pls could someone help me with an account/billing problem. I’ve been on the app chat for over an hour and got nowhere with the assistant. I was then unable to send messages. Thank you

  • afellowghost 🥀🥀🥀 (@afellowghost) reported

    Instead we're going to do a Skype call where she can shame my cooking skills and help me set up a Christmas tree for an hour

  • BUFFM0NA_BOT buff mona (@BUFFM0NA_BOT) reported

    Im a nonthreatening feminist boy, come talk to me on Skype! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘systematic’ means.

  • Ezzy192158 the peepee man (@Ezzy192158) reported

    Guys help i was falling asleep and i start hearing the skype call sound and i wake up and look around and nothing is there i think im starting to imagine things because nobody even uses skype in my house the song is just there

  • jillsandwich13 Dee Dee Megadoodoo (@jillsandwich13) reported

    You can't act surprised when your loli (or whatever fetish) server gets clapped on a service that is designed to essentially be skype for gamers

  • ricky_bright Ricky Bright (@ricky_bright) reported

    @imyke Super pedantic but, Teams (deep down is based on Skype). Skype For Business got renamed and became Lync, which got eaten by Teams.

  • rkbennet Dr. Rachel K. Bennet (@rkbennet) reported

    we *can't* gather on zoom or skype or your video chat of choice, because my parents live in a place with no cell service and where high-speed internet only comes via a bandwidth-restricted satellite service, and they don't even have a webcam or microphone anyway

  • Cookie26Smart SmartCookie26 (@Cookie26Smart) reported

    @mumblevoip I've tried to setup a Mumble server for my chess club but the initial settings were too confusing for the elderly and there were so many audio issues (especially echoes). Now we're using Skype and Discord as they can handle echoes. Rest in peace, privacy...

    @mumblevoip I setup a Mumble server for my chess club during the pandemic. They didn't even try it. The initial settings were confusing and there were so many audio issues (especially echoes). Now they're using Skype and Discord as they can handle echos. Rest in peace, privacy...

  • GoddessYsabeau KING YSA | CANADA (@GoddessYsabeau) reported

    I didn’t think I’d need to say this, but do NOT message Me on My Skype or Kik profiles unless We have a session scheduled. I answer all message requests on here with proof of tribute attached. If I didn’t answer, it’s because you didn’t pay Me. Fix that.

  • SamCollinsWx S🍁muel G🦃bllins (@SamCollinsWx) reported

    @benfrechettewx I think the main thing was it wasn't locked down to a certain email account like Google and Skype (MSoft). Plus its free version allowed for 100 participants which is enough for classrooms and large meetings. Eventually everyone else caught up but Zoom offered big rooms for free

  • Karma_Tsephel Big Name Player (@Karma_Tsephel) reported

    @JanetMasonXXX Hey Janet don't mind me but are we getting the same Skype service on both of your only fans account?

  • TheHackologist thehackologist (@TheHackologist) reported

    I know because I think this is the most unrealistic part of Law & Order: SVU is where everyone can conduct a Skype call without trouble
