  • MontyNaked NakedMonty (@MontyNaked) reported

    DM me if you're naked and willing to have a conversation on skype/hangouts/whatever - yes I mean a conversation. Its the next phase of social distancing. Before Covid, nudists would sit down together and talk while naked, so why can't we do it on a video call? #nudist #chat

    In-person meetings help foster relationships in a way that Skype or conference calls often do not.

  • LesYards Les Yards (@LesYards) reported

    Why is it that other people on a #Skype or #Zoom call demand to see my face? I don't want to see their ugly face, so why do they want to see my ugly face? I'm putting my foot down today. You want to talk to me, call my cell phone. #EnoughIsEnough

  • maddieplays27 Maddie🏳️‍🌈 Origin ID: bibforsalmon (@maddieplays27) reported

    You know what would be cool? If CC and mod creators had classes it could be like an individual 30 minute Skype session. Prices could be 45$–120$ and then people could sign up and learn more hands on and with help.

  • plaguemother Roman J (@plaguemother) reported

    This was also the weekend I woke up with what felt like a broken freaking neck and it didn’t go away for a week and I was starting my job and had to pretend via Skype that I wasn’t hunched over oddly and sort of propping my head up without appearing like I was tired

  • sassdawe Sass, David (@sassdawe) reported

    @LuiseFreese At least Teams is trying to integrate with the Office Suite. The all day long zoom UX is really terrible! I can only join one meeting / call at a time?! Even Skype was better!

    @BBFarhadi Zoom just made a lot of money. Teams must be pissed. I wouldn’t want to get Meets perspective on the issue. And then poor Skype.

    Anybody here who could help? I have some troubles with Skype D:

    @DarkAssassin257 I've never had issue with laggy skype on my computer. So that shouldn't be an issue.

  • DarkAssassin257 ⚔Dragonangel💕 (@DarkAssassin257) reported

    @littlechinabear Skype might be laggy if your computer has sucky ram and processors, but I doubt, cause I'm probably the only one whose computer is since 2015. I'm old, can't help it. I'm able to understand very broken English, used to teach a friend of mine, but that was a long time ago.

  • DarkAssassin257 ⚔Dragonangel💕 (@DarkAssassin257) reported

    @littlechinabear The only thing it actually broke is the login screen when you forget your password, but it's a Skype issue and with or without NVDA, it's just giving an empty screen and you have to end the task in task manager or quite it from system tray, or close the app in heneral.

  • DarkAssassin257 ⚔Dragonangel💕 (@DarkAssassin257) reported

    @littlechinabear Oh there's nothing wrong with Skype. I'm using it, I don't even rely on my vision cause I can't even read, so there, I don't think Skype is broken, at all. I used it like. 2 days ago when used my computer. If you get it on your phone and get used to the layout, same is on windows

  • littlechinabear Brittany (@littlechinabear) reported

    @DarkAssassin257 Facebook MB might be the way to go. I was looking for something that would give me notifications, and everyone is saying skype is currently broken.

    @TelkomKenya @Ragzrockstar You have a problem and you know it.... Don't act stupid....your speeds used to be son has been on your network since 2013 (orange) but this year has been ****...he had to switch to 3g so we can Skype....

    “...and explanations like a stuck key don’t explain why others were logging into her Skype account or why experts found some data on her computer was being relayed to a mysterious internet server address tied to the U.S. Postal Service...”

    @MicrosoftHelps Hi. I need to get into my email that has been blocked. I haven't updated my new number on the account. I cannot fill in a recovery form either since I don't send many emails, use Skype or Xbox either. Please help as anything I do doesn't seem to be working.

  • kennedycurley44 Kennedy Curley (@kennedycurley44) reported

    A big part of my job is my boss telling me to email/Skype message my issue to a support manager from halfway across the country, only to get a passive aggressive response that doesn't actually answer my question.

    Oh look, @Skype for Windows Desktop is broken again for screen reader users. It's amazing how the team responsible for the program manages to break the #accessibility of the program every 6 months. #a11y #blind

  • PPM_35 P.M. (@PPM_35) reported

    @mackenziebezos other guy who is supposedly her "assistant" emails me and says they will pay to fly me to where they are for a meeting. Well I tell them, I was unable to fly because of health issues but I'd be fine for a zoom or Skype meeting and then after that, I hear nothing back for days and

  • lisahallman 🍃🌺Lisa🌺🍃 (@lisahallman) reported

    @Soohem Do you have Skype on your phone or on your computer as that should be useful?? Even zoom or something. I don't know what you are working with or not working with.

  • hischeekiness CheekyMcB (@hischeekiness) reported

    @UglyGeezer Well Hangouts is more like WhatsApp and Duo more just video, but newer service. Google Meets is basically like business level Skype or Zoom i.e. higher user numbers in the groups. All the video call providers have been upping the group sizes on their services in current climate.

  • cheesewz ❄️Cheesodamus (@cheesewz) reported

    @anshelsag This is every Tuesday (lawn guy) and Wednesday (maids) for me. It isn't an issue when I have my headset on, because the mic isolation is amazing. But when I'm on Teams/Skype/Zoom without a headset, it's horrid.

  • BrennanCassidy Brennan Cassidy (@BrennanCassidy) reported

    @mkates @coreykindberg They’re purposely letting Skype go down hill so it can be fully replaced by Teams
