    @urstrulyMahesh @BillGates Right now, facing serious issue/bug in @Skype (owned by Microsoft) since last more than 10 days. If you have his number then please pass this message to him.

  • LordZiggington Ziggy (@LordZiggington) reported

    @Skype could you make a version of skype that is just calls and video chat, with a address book? Nothing else with zero social media integration, fun filters? Basically strip it down to core features getting rid of 90% of the bloat that’s been added all these years?

  • sujal_adhia Sujal Adhia (@sujal_adhia) reported

    @alejandromoze @BillGates @Skype it's more than a week and still same issue. Getting lots of spam block calls from Skype. Other users also getting same issue as per reviews from Appstore for Skype. It's very frustrating when you're using Skype for daily business communication and facing this issue. #Skype

    @Skype installed on iMac 24" M1 with monterey and when i click to launch it bounces a few times on dock, momentarily flashes what appears to be application window, then stops [ / crashes ??? ]. Unable to find any search hits outlining why and how to fix.

  • AndakaraKasyafa Kasyafa Andakara (@AndakaraKasyafa) reported

    @Skype Why i can't send and receive files from the other computer. But some computers can send and receive files. What's the problem

  • finker21 Kelly Fink (@finker21) reported

    Finally got in line for @AsurionCares representative. Was told greater than 10 min wait. That would put me after their customer service closes at 9pm. Also, they just hung up on me. Note: I've been calling via @Skype . Thanks for being there Skype.

  • kafezan cafezan (@kafezan) reported

    @mgoetzke @Skype @Skype please help me I lost my account

  • alejandromoze Alejandro (@alejandromoze) reported

    @sujal_adhia @BillGates @Skype I’ve the same problem! And it’s so annoying

  • interromm Roman (@interromm) reported

    Please fix @Skype iOS App - getting Ghost-Calls from "Blocked" Number (rings 2 times, then disappears) - every time I receive a text message!

  • biIlmasters 🫧 eliot 🫧 (@biIlmasters) reported

    @Skype @PremTung No that is not the problem. This is happening to me and lots of others as well. Every single time you get a notification for a message on Skype, you get a “call” from “blocked” that lasts a couple of seconds. every. single. time. this is absolutely insane you guys have to fix it

  • BryceFlyYT 🅿️lague Bryce 🇺🇦 #OttersRule (@BryceFlyYT) reported

    You know…. It might be a good time to move over to @Skype now since @discord is down.

  • kuto1x k (@kuto1x) reported

    @qJhobi @discord @Skype is it still down

  • inabster Nabil H The Peacemaker ⚛️☮️ (@inabster) reported

    Why is Skype not auto-detecting automatically the typing language, it used to do it perfectly so when I type in French it will automatically use French settings, I use French & English on Skype & have it set up as French on my desktop, please fix. @Skype @windowsinsider @Windows

  • SteveCinq Steven Cinquegrana (@SteveCinq) reported

    @Skype So, ultimately, and as I thought, there was zero point in PMing you. Apart from a phone number, there was nothing sensitive in our dialogue, and certainly no help. The main reason is to remove any public channel of criticism of @Skype/@Microsoft. Hopeless.

  • im_jdasilva Jose DaSilva (@im_jdasilva) reported

    Is @Skype a con service? It sums up Microsoft as a whole 🤬😡🤬😡🤬

  • thejessielau jessie (@thejessielau) reported

    my @Skype is also broken after i updated to MacOS Monterey two months ago and it wouldn't recognize my UVC camera

  • fuelbot Brian (@fuelbot) reported

    @skype's idea of customer service is literally just sending you to a message board. I was charged three times trying to cancel my account. Never using this service again.

  • fuelbot Brian (@fuelbot) reported

    @skype's idea of customer service is just sending you to a virtual agent or a message board. That's incredibly stupid.

  • plmcraig Patrick Lowry Manciet Craig (@plmcraig) reported

    @Skype why is it do bloody hard to speak to a human to fix a technical issue ? Your support site structure is confusing to say the last and it seems you don’t want to offer actual support

  • NeonMarquee Neon Marquee (@NeonMarquee) reported

    @Skype I can no longer place calls to land lines or cell phones in Australia using Skype. Had no problems for 15 years but since last week, nothing. What’s going on? Apps updated, etc.

  • AHeroInMyHeart fapita (@AHeroInMyHeart) reported

    @Skype can't log into Skype on my phone, it's been days, can you fix this

  • SAObserver1 SA_Observer (@SAObserver1) reported

    What terrible technology @Microsoft has. Use of @Skype and @MicrosoftTeams conflicts always causing changes in driver settings & either one hanging. This is a leading global technology that the world "depends" on. How sad!!!

  • dragonbossbjj Tommy DragonBossBJJ Kohne (@dragonbossbjj) reported

    @Skype Hi i need help i wanna get my acc back Tommy-Hikarido-89 plz help me

  • techydude Anthony May (@techydude) reported

    @Skype Why do you insist on wasting my time every 6 months ‘deactivating’ my credit and need me to login to reactivate the money I’ve given you? It does NOT endear me to the product any further. I’ve been doing this stupid dance 2/year for 7 years 🤬

  • sircoynie Sircoynie 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (@sircoynie) reported

    @SkypeSupport @Skype @XboxSupport for the love of god please fix the Xbox app it no longer works when video calling and is driving me insane!!!!!!!!!

  • Jimmy17_ Jim (@Jimmy17_) reported

    Can't access my @Skype account. Every 'contact us' link on Skype/microsoft website links to useless troubleshooting pages that don't help. No way of accessing account to cancel my subscriptions, so I guess they're just going to charge me every month for the rest of my life now.


    @Skype Hello. I have purchased Skype credit of INR 420. yesterday it's been 24hrs. I have not received it. Even if money has been deducted and receipt generated. Kindly please help me as I am unable to call India. Thanks.

  • HereIAmItsMe HereIAmItsMeDavid (@HereIAmItsMe) reported

    .@Skype I keep getting emails about recurring charges for an account in my name. The email associated is not mine and I have never seen it. Your account recovery system is not letting me in. HELP. I do not want my name being used on and cannot stop it!?!

  • flowinthezone dvr (@flowinthezone) reported

    @Skype I was able to change it to use cell number and logged in. Ever since my account was transferred from hotmail to outlook I have had with issues with Skype.

  • flowinthezone dvr (@flowinthezone) reported

    @Skype you logged me out of my account, when I try to login it says sending verification code and the email never arrives :(
