  • R0MMSEN Roman Sachse (@R0MMSEN) reported

    For weeks, I was plagued with a random mute mic (~40% of calls). ONLY in Microsoft Teams or Skype. Zoom etc always worked. I still have no clue why but I found a way to fix it reliably: Start a test call from the settings menu before starting an actual call 🧐🤓 #butWhy

  • bigrainyday Colin Salter, author (@bigrainyday) reported

    On Christmas night all Christians shout, "Oh no, the bloody broadband's out." Zoom, Skype and Facebook down - no fun, And not one engineer, not one. #digitalchristmas

  • zoskazu Rosa ☽ (@zoskazu) reported

    I HATE my mum’s phone/skype voice which is a problem when we’re both in a tiny flag and her entire job consists of phone calls

  • Maria_Shannon Maria (@Maria_Shannon) reported

    @Bentonra Security maybe. It’s horrible, some sporting orgs recommended it after the security issues with Zoom were highlight earlier in the year. Use Skype for Business where I work so not much help. Have used Google meetings for other things, found that pretty stable

  • Elijah70905394 Elijah (@Elijah70905394) reported

    @Skype hey, I closed my Microsoft account and every time I open Skype my name still shows and Skype signs me in no problem. The app works but my Microsoft account asks me to reopen to use it but i don't want to reopen. Isn't Skype suppose to kick me out instead of signing me in?

  • BRekhadda Bouchra REKHADDA (@BRekhadda) reported

    I stopped a while ago answering skype messages like "Hi Bouchra how are you?", "help it's urgent"... And i am not even sorry about it, cause i have priorities too. If it's urgent enough they would leave little details in their message (stack traces or logs would be perfection)

    TFW you login to skype and your therapist's account says "last seen days ago"

  • daekin Miroslav Kallo (@daekin) reported

    @windowsblog Right after update, I was signed out of my Microsoft account in various applications (eg. Edge, Skype) and I am getting error 0x80070426 when trying to sign in again. Is that a known issue of this build?

  • lkatwhit Kat Whittaker (@lkatwhit) reported

    @sherrifflucy Just spent hours on Skype trying to speak to a Spectrum human after they reinstated my service, having arbitrarily decided we were back in Florida. They don’t provide an email and a callback to a U.K. number is just not going to happen. They are a few bows short of a rainbow.

    Im a nonthreatening feminist boy, come talk to me on Skype! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘systematic’ means.

    T-1 hour until my final exam. Bless the fact that it‘s taking place over Skype, I have now started nervously and aggressively cleaning my flat to calm myself down and I intend to do so for the next 50 minutes. I‘m gonna have an MA AND a clean flat 2 hours from now. 🙃

    Skype down?????

  • leesmithie76 Lee Smith MCIPD FCMI JP (@leesmithie76) reported

    @jofridayblue @MrAndrewCotter I'm sorry to hear you've had a sad week Jo. Always on the end of the Skype for a chat if that's of help. You've alway been a great support to me

  • ask4gardenia jude-o-lantern ミ☆ (@ask4gardenia) reported

    okay but tina calling quinn at the beginning of her senior year to ask for help on her application to brown and they would skype and quinn would help her with her essays and make sure her application was perfect and reassure her that she was qualified enough and had faith in her

  • LacTVitter LacTV (@LacTVitter) reported

    @kidkerrigan Quick fix to your problem. Uninstall the logi software, it is trash. The cam drivers cam have a much better and more adjustable set of sliders. To access them, open Skype, Discord or even SLOBS and select the camera properties. I can assist if you need, hit me up.

    Im a nonthreatening feminist waifu! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘Tokyo Mew Mew’ means. Man I’m so horny today. Sorry.I’m sorry. I just came out and said it.

    @ASIOGovAu @PrideDiversity I tried to be with you to help with what I have information that would please the security of Australia and the security of its people at home and abroad, and I arrived via Skype twice, but no one cares. I cannot disclose the information to the public. I would love to work with y

    any #domme down to drain a loser on Skype?

  • Mac_Marceau Mackenzie Marceau 🌈🏳️‍⚧️🇨🇦 (@Mac_Marceau) reported

    Am I the only one who's sick to watch people being interviewed on ******* @Skype, sound muffled, inaudible, or like they are gargling? Skype has had 17 years to upgrade. They still have 2003 issues. Suggestion for TV networks: FACETIME whenever possible!

  • djlckdwn DJ LCKDWN (@djlckdwn) reported

    Now I'm going to gripe about something that isn't the failings of my government. How tf is it that out of @zoom_us @SkypeSupport and @discord none of the above can handle ASIO audio? Some of us need external hardware to get a mic input going, someone please fix this issue ASAP.

  • techamys Amy Storer #TechCareTwins (@techamys) reported

    @mrchrisstover @SkypeClassroom Hello! So this is a game where 2 classrooms choose a mystery number. They then connect on Skype and play the game. They take guesses, back and forth, to narrow down to the number. They can ask questions like "Is your number odd?, Are the sum of your digits smaller than 20, etc."

  • yogi007_0836 Yogesh Kumar (@yogi007_0836) reported

    @OfficeSupport @Office365 @Skype Hi folks, lots of users have been migrated from on prem skype 2013 to Skype online, they are having issues sign in to lync2010 and skype 2013 client only, they can sign in successfully to Skype client 2016. Is it a known bug?? Thanks

  • chance_despot Michael (@chance_despot) reported

    @RobinSwannMoH Could I book some time for a Skype call? I want to see if you’ve been told about the problem with pcr test over sensitivity? And it’s inability to differentiate between someone who had the virus 2 months ago and defeated it with 3 days, or someone who has just acquired it?

  • martique75 Michael heffernan (@martique75) reported

    @flamingyam @LadyHaywire @WendellThomas14 Suppose people had it and didn't know as well so could be spread that way too . The what's app and Skype work on mobile no problem easy see your family I often tried it with UK no. think it works all over

  • meganysta Megan Kinch (@meganysta) reported

    @robyndoolittle University claases or adult classes are no longer that useful now as duolingo, rosetta stone or babbel cover those basic grammar and vocab. Spend your time on in person or skype one on one lessons that you arrange through italki or similar service

  • shebahockey Sheba (@shebahockey) reported

    @SeasonsRC Thanks for the list & I agree. When I called Seasons to ask if someone could help my Dad get Skype back online, Seasons said they would find someone to help him & call me back. No one tried to help him or called me back. Very disappointing considering you are promoting this.

  • ShaylaRacquel Wild & Fluorescent ✨ (@ShaylaRacquel) reported

    So now I’m sitting here clocked in at my new NEW job, trying to help my old coworkers at my old job with their licensing and management issues for Adobe Connect, WebEx, and GoTo, Skype and now Zoom. HALP.

  • coxyko_ Coxyvania Anniversary Collection (@coxyko_) reported

    i open the skype window and in text dripping with blood it reads "Can You Look At This FIN 537623495" and then hands come out of the computer and the hands have mouths on them that scream "STOP YOUR PROCESS AND FIX WHAT I CLEARLY THINK YOU DID WRONG"

  • AskeBay Ask eBay (@AskeBay) reported

    @craaaaiiiigggg Hi there - That line should be open 24x7. Are you calling from a VoiP service such as Skype or Google Voice? Or from your actual phone number. I see you've DM'ed us. Let's follow up there so we can give you the best advice of getting a hold of us. ~Mikayla
