    @Call_me_writer I understand in countries (outside of usa) those communication APPS like WhatsApp, Skype, and such.. may be necessary because of high calling rates and such. However, I also feel like they are similar to virus on phones. The apps tend to make phones/tablets/computers glitch out.

  • muenzenberg_w WILLI (@muenzenberg_w) reported

    berlin transit authorities are shutting down the ringbahn immediately outside my window before this skype call

    @Merryweatherey @PrincessHinghoi @cazzastrophe I stopped using skype after they had all those security issues Not sure if they ever fixed them but it's kinda hard to win back trust after it's lost in such a grandiose way Also Skype was always HEAVY on the system for some reason

    please help me do you have skype??

  • Mark_J_Salter Mark Salter (@Mark_J_Salter) reported

    @CiCiAdams_ Skype owned by Microsoft who used it to help build their new platform - Teams. Skype has been free for years. Dropped the ball? Maybe. But they have the corporate field covered.

    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.

    watching videos with Jessie and Tiff over skype. They really hate when im down. and are probably the most generous kindest people I've ever met.

  • somedudejack Evil Dead 2 on VHS ScaryEyes (@somedudejack) reported

    @Arlieth Skype is the only service I've used in work that's actually functioned the way its intended to so it's got that going for it

  • Varintiss Voss (@Varintiss) reported

    @40K_Drew Skype never worked right when i had a pc XD Once i got rid of it, it was like it was slowing my pc down too?

  • TruthseekingNut 👿✌🏻😇⭕️Tinaillcutyou 🍁🦃🏈⭕️ (@TruthseekingNut) reported

    I actually think I figured it out their customer service guy got back to me and told me I could use Skype. I couldn’t get it to work so I thought it was a no go but clearly operator error. I am super happy because ecamm was the only tec I used by myself and got it to work

  • _zxnhle Zinhle Dladla 🇿🇦 🇨🇳 (@_zxnhle) reported

    Customer service for people overseas is ****. I need help now yall telling me to wait for Skype calls next week 🚮🚮🚮🚮🚮@CapitecBankSA

  • dberkowitz David Berkowitz (@dberkowitz) reported

    @judyshapiro @bmorrissey Also curious - did acquiring Skype help Microsoft build Teams? If so, then a dying Skype is still worth WAY more than just about anything else Microsoft acquired. If not, too bad everyone.

  • catswiththumbs catswiththumbs (@catswiththumbs) reported

    Had a Skype meeting today; she had a rooster in the room that would not shut up - not kidding. Having no similar experience to fall back on, I continued on with the meeting. The apocalypse is nigh - gear up, buckle down.

  • Sicko_Mode_Dino Acrocanthosaurus (Arc on short Pause) (@Sicko_Mode_Dino) reported

    @Merryweatherey @PrincessHinghoi @cazzastrophe Skype will die like discord soon All apps and services die Skype is is only part of the endless Road It will be like discord one day and you'll make this same comic but with Skype as the small kid and another service as Skype

    @SpeakerPelosi Where are they to celebrate over Skype? you Dems want everyone home alone scared to death and awaiting your "help" No thanks I will take dangerous FREEDOM over "PERCEIVED" safety any day any day!

  • iddesleigh Rudi Wheaton (@iddesleigh) reported

    @Shortbloke She is now part of my son's entourage, ever since we moved to a flat with no garden. But we see her every week when there is no lock down, and she even recognises me and my voice on Skype. Miss her a lot.

  • PolTimmer Pol Timmer (@PolTimmer) reported

    Not sure if you're aware, but the @IntercontGTC commentary is unintelligible. It sounds like the problem is that the commentators are on a skype call without wearing headphones. #IntGTC

  • MrDave1602 Statue of Limitations (@MrDave1602) reported

    @Def_Not_Dan @thebritishertwi Perhaps TheBritisher is wrestling with a built-in microphone of inferior quality, therefore disabling it would be more difficult. Many apps like Discord or Skype suffer this problem too.

  • fiearah ꜰɪᴇᴀʀᴀʜ 🤶 (@fiearah) reported

    When I first started this my time was completely monopolized by being a mom. Now that I have more free time, during the day (school) I am able to do things like Skype etc. IF I WANT TO. There in lies the problem....

  • tommyraz24 Tom (@tommyraz24) reported

    @asmith2306 @jdillon1000 @afneil What’s geography got to do with it? How much have you travelled abroad for work this year? Our gdp is 76% service industry..... you not heard of email and Skype? You don’t be sold, if the single market is so amazing why they so scared of others leaving!!?

  • emilysarahhhhh 💭 (@emilysarahhhhh) reported

    had to help my boss figure out how to do a skype voice call/dial into a conference call, and when I saw @rabiasquared's name on the meeting invitation, I just about lost all faculties

  • New2Findom1 Chris (@New2Findom1) reported

    I shouldn't post this, but I'm seriously considering paying for a 5-10 minute skype session. I'm craving seeing big titties and armpits. IF I do this, it will be a one time fee. If I fall into short tributes I'm going to fall back down into the addiction hole #homewrecker

  • chefBOYERdee1 Blake Boyer (@chefBOYERdee1) reported

    @cwsdjt Yup it’s all a money grab. If that’s the case tho they should do bubbles like the NBA and NHL did, I mean it’s not like these kids are goin to class in person anyway. They can Skype it no problem I’m sure

  • chuckmoran Joe gets the #46 jersey! (@chuckmoran) reported

    @faceman68 @TIME @ericsyuan Right? I was using it back then, having gotten tired of Skype. Now I have a course to help people up their Zoom game, and a blog about Zoomers. I sure didn’t see any of that coming this time last year!

  • GunArmPacifist Ciel Dilandy (@GunArmPacifist) reported

    @Merryweatherey @PrincessHinghoi @cazzastrophe Yet Skype has always run better for me than Discord ever did. Even after it changed itself into v. NotDiscord. Skype also didn't randomly delete over half the messages I would send. Or randomly decide someone was offline for hours. Or have broken notifications on Windows 7. Or l
