This work yielded a whole new dimension of chatting and people made their own are the most popular ones especially in sub-continent as they are readily available and accessible over the internet.Most of all they are free and we donâ€™t charge any fee for that.Video link with camera that works fine for other applications broken (does not even show video device available with no way to debug). And now the Skype for Desktop app comes complete with highly annoying and terribly intrusive ads.Seriously, MS, your app developers leave a lot to be desired for this opening night experience of Windows 10 apps.If you are running an older version of Windows, please visit Microsoft: let me be plain, you're screwing this up and you're making your own app store and universal app strategy look bad. The most recent Windows update has totally screwed up my Skype.I no longer have the program listed in my start menu and there's no icon I can pin to my task bar.If so, click Yes and on the following screen Select All and Save." No matter what option you pick, check "Do not ask me again" or not, it always asks this when Skype loads.
Unlike email, Skype will transfer up to 300MB per file. This version of Skype is only available for Windows 10. Buggy, doesn't stay active in the background, doesn't stay active in task bar when closed (duh).You could at least let us have the option to use the old app if we don't want the terrible "new" update. Basic UI use for Skype as software based phone are not as good.Ring function and control messed up (rings after pickup, rings once connected, cannot disable ring while on other line).If I could give the "Get Skype" app less than one star, I certainly would. Contacts were easy to add, files were easy to share, saving where you liked were easy, and the calls were high quality.This is a terrible insult to users of the Windows 8.1 Skype app: -5 Stars! Skype is desperately trying to compete with apps such as snapchat, which is a mistake. Settings (formerly Options) has beend reduced by 4/5 and some of the most important things to me have been removed including first and foremost the ability to decide where downloads get saved to.
