    @Skype Fill out a form and wait after I frantically tried to get help on a hacked [email protected][email protected]#[email protected]## Only service where you account gets hacked and you're treated like a second hand customer. No wonder people are no longer using Skype. Lost ALL OF MY CONTACTS.

    @redeemedHacker @SkypeBusiness Do they not offer any kind of password on their meetings? How did people respond when you joined? I'm guessing if you joined as some kind of 'customer service agent' for Skype, people wouldn't bat an eyelid

    @Inu_Chu there's a new online service that lets you talk to a professional over the internet (Skype i assume) that Philip DeFranco has had as a sponsor recently. they apparently also deal with most insurance

    Eric Huntley (@Texas_Rambler) reported

    @bdsams Not to pile on, but the app is garbage. This happens to a lot of people and it is unreliable if trying to do anything other than Skype to Skype. MS always provides the helpful "fix" of...."Have you tried installing the Skype Desktop app"....

    @film_girl There are a couple of banking apps that don’t work and Skype is still broken. For most people I’d say wait, but for you I say “What are you waiting for?”

    This is entirely the wrong time for @Skype to glitch out horribly on me.

  • Wolvenreign
    Wolvenreign (@Wolvenreign) reported

    @SkypeSupport My Skype seems to think that the Tab button is being held down, it constantly moves to the bottom option of whatever I'm using. This makes it impossible to talk to anyone, and I DESPERATELY need the use of Skype right now, talking to a partner.

    @film_girl Netflix might crash. Skype does crash unless you have the preview. Twitter might display a blank login screen (I haven't experienced this one)

    @BFbackpackers Germany. I was 19, it was my first time abroad and I went to work in a motorway service station. Had to use classroom German! So different in those days: no mobile phones, expensive to use a landline to call home, no internet, no email, no skype and mail took for ever. #travel

    Hi @Skype, Thank you for fixing the app crash on iOS 12 so early during the beta. I thought we would have to wait for the final iOS 12 release for the fix, so this was a great surprise. Sincerely, iOS 12 beta testers everywhere.

    @Skype and @SkypeSupport I can't believe you have no customer support number to call. I am dealing with a problem, calls are not working on my account, your list of automated answers doesn't help. This is really not a nice experience at all. Please help.

    Just got a random video skype call from some old guy in Austria, that was attempting to speak broken English, and had no shirt on but seemed like he wanted to have an honest conversation. That had to be the most awkward yet kind feel bad moment of me hanging up on anyone ever.

    Just a heads up to anyone thinking of getting Straight talk wireless. The carriers are great, but their is no video calling. You have to use an app like Skype or Snap...etc. Other than that, the service is great.

    Sometimes, it's possible to overutilize technology. I have a meeting coming up with two other people. One works out of the office, so she needs to use Skype. The other one has an office that's pretty much right down the hall from mine. She wants me to use Skype as well...

    Eddy (@Eddy9091) reported

    @SkypeSupport Yes, i checked the status on your website all looked good. I had no error message, i just couldn't use IM, message couldn t be sent or received. This was tested on different networks with the same result. Currently it is working without taking any action.

  • redmeepleryan
    Ryan Peach (@redmeepleryan) reported

    @EltonG31 @WhiteCaneGamer The Skype desktop app is being sunsetted and has a vulnerability MS won't fix. The Skype App is useable, but clunky to navigate. No dedicated chat windows and it will fight you if you don't use the default audio hardware.

    @ToddJAwesome Your podcast is so similar to @HDTGM with the difference that they talk about terrible movies and you talk about horror. Your format and how you discuss them are so close. I wish you could guest for @paulscheer via Skype.

    @SkypeSupport please fix the issue where the mic can be controlled by the user via device properties,mic is always at 100% and cause feedback on my pc as well as my friends and makes it unusable due to feedback issues,i tell it not to control it in exclusive mode and still go up

    When using Skype with JAWS, JAWS volume goes down so low I can't hear it. Unable to use JAWS while on a call. Changed to Do Nothing Under the Communications tab of Sound properties but still no go. Ideas?

    @Jay2284 I just brought the insurance and a leather phone case holder. I'm good. The only thing I don't like about this service is no wifi calling or video calling. I have to use an app like Snap or skype.

    @SkypeSupport I'm using Skype for Business. The issue is when for some reason network is not working during sending message and even if network is back the conversation is frozen (I can still talk with other people but not with this one that message was not send)

    Jeremy Karp (@jkarpsportsfan1) reported

    @Benjamoofin I've always used Audacity to edit, but right now the issue is regarding the recording. I use Skype to make the call, Pamela to record the call, but for some reason the other end of the call never is recorded, even when it technically is.

    Is there a kind, brave soul with Skype out there who is willing to help me test a new Skype/Linux/Podcast setup? Essentially: we will talk, probably rather awkwardly, on Skype. While that happens, I will be attempting to record it using OBS.
