Skype Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • DuckMoriarty Michael Moriarty (@DuckMoriarty) reported

    @leaguetalkblog @XL_Aleex @EXCEL However another fix (and potentially easier) is checking which channels your recording software writes to. A few of them (especially skype -> mp3 recorders) are temperamental and don't work how you'd hope they would

  • Veldpark Steve Johnson (@Veldpark) reported

    @SkypeSupport I think I may have found the problem and sorted it out. I will get someone to phone me and see if it rings. I will let you know, thanks.

  • Pullthepocket Pullthepocket (@Pullthepocket) reported

    @BeemieAwards I can be on Skype for help Beem. You’re my pal, I don’t want to see you roped like a steer and left at the border.

  • ladygwenavear Nikkia T. Carter (@ladygwenavear) reported

    @tomarbuthnot I am she in my tenant. I switch often sometimes and not often other times. Depends on which client I am working with. With Skype for Business, I used to have to only have to login once then again when resetting password but S4B would remember my creds.

    @BirchBirch1875 @silverserpant @MrKlondikeBill @PhilThePromoter @thedavesincere @TheWNCShow @WrestlingSoup I've been testing it out on the Skype testing service, little staticy at first but I figured out last night that it was a distance issue. So now I'm clear as a bell.

    @TrevorDow hey Trevor I won’t be able to Skype we had internet issues

  • velyanthe vely ☕️ (@velyanthe) reported

    @SkypeSupport All related options send me to the community; I cannot get directly into contact with Skype support. This issue has already been brought up in the community on the same thread your twitter linked me to earlier.

  • TyroneLewis22 Tyrone 'No-one of consequence' Lewis (@TyroneLewis22) reported

    This is probably the least I have prepped for a #DnD session. Got @LucyElizaFoster and @JakeWildHall coming down + another via Skype potentially. I literally have no idea what will happen.

    @Skype How can you leave a baby lamb out there in this cold without a scarf🧣 or a hat. That shivered me. @SBGillani see if you can help these guys with a scarf for the baby lamb, please.

  • Ghanaweedone king of all plants (@Ghanaweedone) reported

    @iamedem Me I will be using the village Skype (calabash with water ). No network problems .You don’t need a license.

  • becsj76 Becs 🏃‍♀️🍩 (@becsj76) reported

    @RoDuSu Skype is our phone system for work. It’s a nightmare. Trying to hold a conference call and it breaks down and freezes so you lose vital info!

  • RoDuSu Robert Sutherland (@RoDuSu) reported

    Skype has to be one of the worst designed communication products. The video quality is nearly always sketchy, and the app (even when you’re just using it to make a call) burns through the battery and makes your phone ridiculously hot. It’s an issue I’ve never had with Whatsapp.

  • krzwl Jan Kratochvil (@krzwl) reported

    @SkypeSupport Hi Levi, unfortunately Twitter doesn't allow a DM via messaging from me to you. However, my Skype version is 8.34.0.78. I tested it before and it worked. I really hope, you can help me, this one is very important. Thank you! (you can answer to registered mail address, too)

  • nhbnews Eddie Goldman (@nhbnews) reported

    @eleanor_fye And the copy function by pressing down on something never seems to work properly for me on Android tablet or phone. I do audio podcasting on the laptop, record calls through Skype (3rd party app), edit audio, etc. I read Google will disable call recording apps in Pie.

    @SkypeSupport Yes, sorry. I clicked the link and was able to login with no error message.

  • JC_USA1 JC⭐️USA (@JC_USA1) reported

    New Twitter (on a laptop) looks a LOT like Skype's user experience. It's not a total fail, but Microsofty-wonk. Suggestion: @Twitter plz MOVE the TWEET button to top/left; putting the button bottom/right is counter intuitive, and always will be. There's no good purpose down there

  • tamascotchi scotch (@tamascotchi) reported

    imagine hearing griffin mcelroy’s lone muffled voice down the hallway and you can just barely make out that he’s on a skype call because he’s just repeating the word “squad” with a few seconds of silence in between. “ah must be a munchsquad bit,” you think to yourself

  • KPesaBit #FinancialFreedom (@KPesaBit) reported

    crypto is the future of money. ... it will replace the permanently broken platform of credit cards and banks. Cryptocurrency is to the banks.. ... what the internet and apps (like Skype) were to the old long-distance companies. #Pump&Hold

  • the_ptoing Sven Ruthner (@the_ptoing) reported

    @SkypeSupport The issue happened fairly recently, when the older version of KB4023057 was installed. Since that I reinstalled Skype and MS issued a new version of that update which I also installed. I'll try and do some calls in the near future, but it might be a while. I'll keep you posted.

  • VV4Change It's The Bribes, Again (@VV4Change) reported

    @SkypeSupport Windows 10 wrecks the headset settings, I'm cancelling service in Feb. And, truly, you don't want me to report how useless and condescending the 'service' is on Skype's social media - just as bad as it is all over Microsoft.

  • GodDammitWarren Taydyne (@GodDammitWarren) reported

    Hi. I’m barely writing. I do a few replies a day on maybe two accounts. I’m faced with my art being worthless and being told to move out. My DMs are always open if you have a problem with me. I check it every few days. Or kik or Skype or text

  • the_ptoing Sven Ruthner (@the_ptoing) reported

    @SkypeSupport The main issue here is that it is not instant when making a call. In both cases where it happened it was on long calls, after a fair amount of hours. And it only happens during voice calls. If Skype is just running and I text chat with people there are no issues.

  • MrMagsNews1 MrMagsNews (@MrMagsNews1) reported

    @bevclack I ditched Skype some time ago. Now using - OoVoo which is a pretty handy service to use at work. It solves the problem of inconvenient Skype video conference call feature, at absolutely no cost. It can hold up to 12 people simultaneously. The service works on Windows, Mac etc..

    [[So I now had to offload Skype from my phone because of the storage full message yet again, and I took a few Twitter accounts off my phone too. But the latest response was that I needed to wait til we recoup the lost money from the cable issue and my insurance so...]]

  • the_ptoing Sven Ruthner (@the_ptoing) reported

    @SkypeSupport I wonder if KB4023057 has anything to do with it. It just wanted to reinstall recently and I had to uninstall an already installed version to not get an error. But I have no idea. But sure, we could still try and see what's the issue. I would have some time now.

  • LaRuse7 LaRuse (@LaRuse7) reported

    @EFGreenleaf @dkaycarvin @paulkrugman That’s why we have a military department to handle such issues so our Congress can stay in Washington to do its’ job. There’s also such a thing as Skype or this handy invention called the telephone to relay information. Or considering this war has been going on over 17 years

    @SkypeSupport It’s not the features that is the problem it’s just very slow and lagging pretty bad, we both have high speed internet and pretty good devices, it worked perfectly with the older version but since updating it’s too slow to use

  • grouppolicyguy Darren Mar-Elia (@grouppolicyguy) reported

    @HelgeKlein Biggest bit right now is that no Start Menu customization is saved. Known issue, no fix. Beyond stupid. The other is random, spontaneous window minimization--seemingly every time I use a collab app like Skype, WebEx. Never happened before 1809--affects only MS apps. Weird.

  • PaulM73891953 Paul M (@PaulM73891953) reported

    @SkypeSupport @andre_fr_cunha All these problems would be solved if Skype Classic were still available for use, I'm sure people would be willing to beta test the new version as well even if they were using Classic normally. Killing Classic before even the most basic features were running was stupid.

    @SkypeSupport I'm using Skype for Windows standalone app on a Win10 laptop, and I haven't run through any updates since yesterday when it was still working fine. I don't have a subscription but I do have enough credit to make calls. The problem is there for any paid call.

    @SkypeSupport Hi! Thanks for reaching out. I'm able to log in and call Skype to Skype. However when I try to make a paid call onto a cell phone, it comes back with a message "Your account is blocked" and the call won't go through. The problem appeared today.
