  • sucimolidina Suci Molidina (@sucimolidina) reported

    @SkypeSupport I didn't get the direct message. Also, i registered skype using that email before it's connected to microsoft. So i couldn't login to microsoft using that email though.

  • DNDElise D&D Elise (@DNDElise) reported

    @MezzoBlaze @ScrivTheBard Voice and video conferencing. I have way less tech issues during dnd play-testing and games than I have the other platforms. Seems like we had regular issues with free platforms like Skype and Discord.

  • paranormiespod Pair of Normies (@paranormiespod) reported

    @Tired_Snek I’d be down for a Skype call sometime. I get a lot of my prep from people this way.

  • h8lyn french biscuit (@h8lyn) reported

    just remembered this one time i modelled for an artist over Skype and i dont remember all the things he coaxed me into doing on cam but i do remember sitting on the floor, in nothing but socks, breaking down

  • _Rbot_ Rooben.avi (@_Rbot_) reported

    Im in a skype call called actual Mishas please help me

  • mattsmith321 Matt Smith (@mattsmith321) reported

    @shanselman Heading to my 89yo mom's tonight so that I can be there for the weekly Skype session with my siblings. Tech issues have been taking up a lot of call time and just easier to go there and hang out and deal with it directly.

  • khadouj_london Khadouj London (@khadouj_london) reported

    @ahyde110 I actually interviews to be done in person, the only time I would make the exception of #Skype or #Phone would be if there was an #issue with #distance or else it would always be #inperson.

  • swanvalleygirl Kimberly McBride (@swanvalleygirl) reported

    @ATT @ATTHelp @ATTpublicpolicy @bbb_us or technical service. Today I was offered a $25.00 refund. TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS! Unacceptable, at best you owe me the last 11 months, the amount I have spent on Skype credits for both calling and text

  • twowheelprof richard cheetham MBE (@twowheelprof) reported

    @TMRugbyCoach Tim- call visit Skype let me know if I can help

  • rclarke Robin Clarke (@rclarke) reported

    iOS Safari drains battery faster that a Skype call. This is ridiculous. I genuinely think that Apple have a moral imperative to fix the energy consumption of the software they force their hardware ecosystem to use.

  • rachelcorbman rachel corbwomyn (@rachelcorbman) reported

    @ahyde110 phone has less tech issues. no need to dress up. and i can look at my notes during the interview. still, it's hard to read social cues over the phone, esp w/ strangers. ultimately, the only interviews i've felt good abt (& sometimes marginally enjoyed) were over skype/zoom.

    Brooklyn gave a link permit after devann told him off stream before stream started an as started her stream that"the disabled loser ****** is doing mean evil things w the pvt pics devann sent to guy in skype &needs help makin the problem go away=risk of her arrest". Which

  • keithgessen Keith Gessen (@keithgessen) reported

    Just did my first Skype-in to a book club that had read A Terrible Country and I have to say, it was a lot of fun. So, if you have a book club, I want to say to you: I have Skype.

  • AskAmazingLucas TAL (@AskAmazingLucas) reported

    @TaleebStarkes Hey Taleeb, tried shooting an email back but there was a technical error of some kind. Wanted to let you I would be down for the Skype interview for tomorrow.

  • kiiiiimooooo karim adel (@kiiiiimooooo) reported

    @VodafoneEgypt Yes, it is. I open Hotspot to my laptop from my cellphone, trying to use Skype on my laptop /cell phone but not working, however when I use Skype from ADSL internet, it's working

  • nerdegem 👨‍💻 nerdegem 👨‍💻 (@nerdegem) reported

    @simonleyland I had this discussion with our InfoSec. It doesn't help that Securescore marks closed Skype federation as a recommendation. I continue to push to close federation on email 👍

    @skrill Can I get Skype help line number

  • profchickenyt Professor Chicken (@profchickenyt) reported

    Ugggggh Discord Not working I need my Skype ringtone fix rn

  • danegolden Dane Golden (@danegolden) reported

    @ZimanaAnalytics @Ileane If it was on zoom the audio is usually terrible for podcasts because it’s hard to find the audio settings, and hard to test your own audio back to you. We use Skype for podcasts and if so, you can test your audio by calling echo123 then tweak

  • grappler_six The Grappler 6 (@grappler_six) reported

    @gdanp78 @GrapplerX The Skype line was funny, I’ll admit that no problem. The rest just sounded like a group of bitter Snowflakes trying to get over on people who have already exposed them for what they are.

  • Inter_Lawyer Retired Gun 4 Hire (@Inter_Lawyer) reported

    @GayInTheNRA @deeveeaar @Takedownscammer @Kpt_Kerosive @nikkivsscammers @tanvav @kfrancis217 @JohnnyTwoRiver2 @Fuzzhead @steveny74212500 @IsmailA71753952 ...on Twitter and Skype, etc. I’ve been doing this for many years now but don’t focus on simple Indian tech scammers. I like the occasional SSA scammers chat but it seems I spend 30-50 hours for you guys but get no help in return on what I know best. I even have P. I.’s on them.

  • sympmarc Marc D Anderson (@sympmarc) reported

    @c_f_johnson @MicrosoftTeams Ended up in Skype Consumer earlier today instead of Teams because of the difficulties in tenant switching. Fix it!

  • TR3V0RL Trevor Loflin (@TR3V0RL) reported

    @margeys99 @ObamaFoundation @GretaThunberg @BarackObama You know, its 2019. If the climate was such an issue he could have skyped her. The energy used to do that is far less than a Skype call.

  • Limescale Dominic Weston (@Limescale) reported

    @dolphinfish55 @ModPoPenn There might be low cost options like Skype Out that could help

  • sanbarrow ulli hankeln (@sanbarrow) reported

    @vMarkus_K Dont have problems myself - but somehow I became a magnet that attracts folks with locked files. Must be a side-effect of having "call me via skype" in my VMTN signature ...

  • ScottBloomberg7 Scott Bloomberg  (@ScottBloomberg7) reported

    @SkypeSupport Hi. I don’t need help anymore. My question was answered by you guys.

  • Thrill3rrr Μέλισσα Βλάχος (@Thrill3rrr) reported

    Just sent $20 to one of my friend from overseas on Skype without being asked. First time I’ve done this.. might start using Skype soon incase if they don’t have much will help👌🏼 I don’t know how ppl keeps finding my acc but I don’t care anymore

  • DevonBreeze Devon Breeze🔞 (@DevonBreeze) reported

    @MelodyCharm1 I’ve had 42 emails regarding whattsapp/Skype and I’ve had zero payment/booking. I’d rather sit and chill, switch my mind off from work than waste time like this. Someone please fix my internet 😫

    @Hlale_Malesa @IamMotswane And oh , broke broke! Ni hava na Skype so let me sit down 😂

  • MistressBooUK 💋Mistress Boo💋 (@MistressBooUK) reported

    Please don’t add me on skype. It’s not a service I provide. Don’t then also insult my intelligence by saying you found me there. It’s Skype. Not Google-a-Domme.

    Microsoft has resolved the problem with Skype for Business voicemail.

  • CaboverPeter Cabover Pete (@CaboverPeter) reported

    @zacbowden @petroemil @PowerTechX2 Sharing to Skype from other apps doesn't work anymore, unless Skype is running. There are countless of issues with Skype. It's unbelievable how anyone can think it's fine.

  • CaboverPeter Cabover Pete (@CaboverPeter) reported

    @zacbowden @petroemil @PowerTechX2 He is not wrong about the Skype case, which is really bad, slow, and buggy on Windows, and leaves a bad impression. Fortunately, there are countless of mobile apps using React Native that don't suffer from those problems.

  • AnalBoof Lunacy (@AnalBoof) reported

    @Robcat99_ @XboxSupport @AskPlayStation skype is really an alternative to parties being down u definitely are right BUT if u have trouble signing in again. go offline>sign in> go back online. it always works for me, those really the only fixes i have for the two main problems happening recently

  • LaserDiscTurtle Laserdisc Turtle (@LaserDiscTurtle) reported

    Ugh! I think a Skype update just rolled back my Windows and lost the Highlander 2 render I left running over night. Annoyingly the render seemed glitch free when I checked it. Oh well, time to start a new one...

  • LisaTMullin Lisa T Mullin (@LisaTMullin) reported

    @ZJemptv If you want to DM, FB message, or Skype me... please do. And if you want stats help, the same.

  • musicaltoncr Spooky L 😈 (@musicaltoncr) reported

    lowkey big down for more skype calls like last night

  • YEVG3NIYA YEVGENIYA (in Thailand) (@YEVG3NIYA) reported

    After a month of using @googlefi service abroad, I can confidently tell you not to use them if you do any sort of phone work. WiFi calling doesn't work for iPhones, so you're charged $0.20/min for every call sent or received. It's cheaper just to use Skype with a local SIM.

  • BevsWinter Beverly (@BevsWinter) reported

    @YoullFl0atToo “I’ll be sad too. But I will come back and see you again handsome. No doubt about it. And I’ll always be free to Skype, if you’re down with that. It’s gonna suck not seeing this in person.” She kissed down his neck as she spoke.

    @BBlasjowski @neveren46132372 @charliekirk11 Y’all need to work out a time when you can face time or Skype with her on a weekly basis. That would help a lot

    If your payment method is PayPal don’t buy! I went through a long period of time of talking to this guy about prices adding him on Skype and then he sent me a fake screenshot of a payment not working on PayPal! #buyingnudes

  • RealMan505 Sean (@RealMan505) reported

    @NawtyChelseaRae Let me know if you're down for that really quick Skype before you log on :) Like I said, I don't mind paying some more and we can still do tomorrow :)

  • poowpodcast Part of [Our] World (@poowpodcast) reported

    @BensonCalure I guess a voice meter would solve the Skype issue as well.

  • poowpodcast Part of [Our] World (@poowpodcast) reported

    @BensonCalure Yeah I'm using Adobe Audition now and getting better sound, but not sure what to do about Skype. I still think there's inherent issues with the sound card, but I'll keep looking into it.

    I went to login on my Skype and it didn’t recoganize the Microsoft account I’ve had for TWELVE YEARS

  • TaraSlySays Tara Garrett (@TaraSlySays) reported

    There's a chick at Starbucks who just sat down right next to me (Even though there's two chairs on her other side) She opened her laptop & is having a business Skype call WITHOUT headphones. Yeah, just volume turned all the way up, doing business. #SuperRespectful

  • tween_sensation trash panda irl 👽 (@tween_sensation) reported

    I have new people in the cubes all around me, two of which have not turned the volume down on their computers so I can hear their email and Skype noises and one who has some Very Strong Lotion! I miss being alone

  • Thulani_Dlamini ... (@Thulani_Dlamini) reported

    @DStvCare This happens every time I watch a football match using your service. The sync starts out fine but the sound slowly falls behind the visuals until there is a noticeable audio delay. It wasn’t the Skype video call...

  • IamAhmedKhalifa Ahmed Khalifa (@IamAhmedKhalifa) reported

    @mgifford @AXSChat @zoom_us @Skype @CircuitHQ @BlueJeansCares @GoToMeeting I know Skype has auto-captions/live subtitling instead. And no, they're not very good, especially if neither of you have good clean internet connection. Plus, Skype can be quite sketchy too, so that doesn't help the clarity of the audio either. #AXSchat

  • mycleartext MyClearText (@mycleartext) reported

    @Outreach_NTI @AXSChat @zoom_us @Skype @CircuitHQ @BlueJeansCares @GoToMeeting we also use that function in @zoom but a big problem is it doesn't save the lovely captions so they are lost if you want to view later, so their webinars. We have a work around but that's what we have to do with most tech.

  • gdanp78 IAC (@gdanp78) reported

    @GrapplerX @radrobgaming @WWRPodcast @thatsussieguy Yeah, I thought it was a pretty good parody. Grappler skype workout parties is an example of being humorous instead of being a ****, aka: attacking a guys military service.

  • dadddymacaroni 👴🏾 Sensitve Spoopy Grandpa 👴🏽 (@dadddymacaroni) reported

    @honeychere I’m all for everyone setting their prices at whatever they want to, but Skype sessions getting low balled has been a problem for a while. I don’t even take them anymore because of how many times some dumb **** as tried to only pay the bare minimum and want more attention
