  • Iffy service

    Interface remains problematic—often when I first join a meeting, others cannot hear my audio although I hear them fine. This requires leaving and re-entering the meeting. Also, when leaving and re-entering the meeting, I do not get the pop up window to select the Skype for Business app and proceed—I hit a dead end—meaning another complete reboot (exit Skype altogether and start again). Loss of time and frustration.
  • Poor integration

    If you are logged in laptop as well as iOS app.. it creates multiple messages thread.. with one message each. Some message come to laptop... some to iOS. So frustrating...
  • Horrible at syncing

    This is a messaging app that doesn’t sync between mobile devices and computers hardly. This is a deal breaker for me. Having to manage different conversations on separate devices is extremely annoying.

    Of course connection and conversation clarity depends on local comms infrastructure, but sometimes the app does not work properly on my laptop, phone or pad and I need to switch between them to get to the call which is annoying. On video calls, we usually make introductions and then disconnect video as connection is rarely good. That’s on voice/video calls. On messaging, it’s annoying to have every conversation’s phrase separately saved in outlook instead of the whole chat at once. Hope this helps on any planned improvement.
  • Works well but it must be supported properly

    Skype, for better or worse, depends on the IT department that implements it. Ours, for instance, has a ton of restrictions when it comes to mobile use so Skype is hit or miss. But I give it 5 stars because it works very well when I connect and even on smaller screens, the display is fine. Conversations are clear.
