Skype for Business App Reviews

  • Still Crappy Skype

    By bhutch1
    Still drops calls like regular Skype. Service don’t always work. Skype and Bose QC35 II headphones don’t play well together. Microsoft make the calls reliable first before you do anything else.
  • It doesnot sync up and iphone app crashes! Doesnot connect to meetings .

    By ramudrift1
    Not that great app compared to skype dono what makes difference!
  • How can Microsoft still be this bad?

    By Ukthk
    After 43 years as a computer software company, Microsoft still can’t seem to get software right. 1: This barely ever syncs correctly with my computer. This isn’t a bug; it’s foundational stuff. 2: Sometimes I will get notifications for a message, and see the contents of the message in that notification, but then the actual message is nowhere to be found in the app. Again, if I worked at Microsoft, this would be on my list of “Top 3 Things To Make Sure We Get Right”. 3. I get emails for Missed Conversations when I’ve seen the whole conversation on the app. I’m even the last reply on some of these. Maybe a product of the no-computer-sync thing, but again, Top 3 stuff here. 43 years of Microsoft and this is what we get.
  • Infuriatingly bad user experience

    By Spartan-000
    This app is a backwards barely supported train wreck. Turn on multi-factor authentication in Office 365 and this thing will silently fail on login. The online connection tester from Microsoft will mislead you into thinking there is a problem with their own auto discover server presenting the wrong certificate. You’ll only find out this thing thing is literally made of fail when you eventually stumble across a support thread with 131 Office 365 users complaining about the exact same failure.
  • Does not work

    By Jos Fey
    I have not been able to sign in since I moved to the US. This app worked in Africa and Europe but not in the US. Also when this app was working it always had trouble synching with my laptop. This app also does not have the best quality phone calls. Disappointed with needing this app.
  • Needs a way to turn off audio connection

    By Bigmrv07
    That way I can see via app but hear through much more reliable cell phone connection.
  • Not a business solution

    By Smturbo
    This app is so unreliable that I only use it in emergency situations. The issues I have are that the logging in process doesn’t always work, sometimes saying that there’s no connection to the server for no apparent reason; the app will randomly log off and you have to log back in; I constantly miss messages, especially if the app is running the background.
  • This would be a 5 star is we are able to record out meetings with our phones not just desktops.

    By gtgtfrde
    Please improve this with the next upgrade. Other then that, I love everything about office apps.
  • Trash

    By miliotx
    It doesn’t sync messages between app & desktop PC
  • Nearly useless

    By Kerioth
    For all the reasons others have listed, this app is garbage. I’m sad my workplace has chosen this messaging system.
