  • alexa_78 Alexa Salmon (@alexa_78) reported

    @lynda_thomas @macmillancancer I’ve never known multi-tasking like it, but we have such supportive colleagues it doesn’t feel like an issue - even when my 5 year old gatecrashes my Skype calls or tries to “help” me type. I feel very lucky 💚

  • ChaoticTemptres Chaotic (@ChaoticTemptres) reported

    Whatever this new screen share thing that discord has made for there updates on dm calls is atrocious. You cant even watch in full screen its just a tiny square,wheres the fun in this. At this point i may as well switch to skype. Please fix this @discord

  • Trashartgames1 Trash art/games (@Trashartgames1) reported

    @BijuuMike Skype is going down the drain so everyone uses Zoom.

  • petoushkoff Ilya Petoushkoff (@petoushkoff) reported

    @WalkableDFW Skype should be out of any rating because it's plain horrible and unable to serve its purpose when dealing with 3+ participants to a call. Zoom works great, and I hope they'll manage to fix all the security issues that were discovered once their number of users skyrocketed.

  • acgerstein Aleeza Gerstein (@acgerstein) reported

    @carlyziter @Souza101Matt @SJC_fishy For a long time, Skype was the best game in town. Then Microsoft bought Skype and made it terrible. Zoom removed the time/person limit for the free academic accounts at the start of WFH.

  • meghin_ Meghin Moore ⛰ (@meghin_) reported from Charlottesville, Virginia

    I am currently thinking about how the sads are starting to kick in again because everything is terrible and im probably going to end up having my first big cry in front of my therapist on a Skype session next week. I should be sleeping and not having an existential crisis.

  • savannahsgramma Gale King (@savannahsgramma) reported

    @TB_Times Is this guy living in the real world. My grandson face times an Skype. They dont have a problem with it.

  • dontpaniccos kimmmmmm (@dontpaniccos) reported

    Long distance friends have this whole Skype-date thing down 👌

  • NixonTweets Aaron Nixon 🧘🏽‍♂️ (@NixonTweets) reported

    @canofvitamins @mojoreturns @EIprogram Nah. Flesh & blood who is willing to put forth some effort here. Feel free to hit me up on Skype at aaronnixon in order to help dispel all these assumptions.

  • DebraLander Debra (@DebraLander) reported

    @cutupx2 @realbadger @CindieNolin1 @Pheramuse @missmalindakat @DuaneSimolke @RealMiniAOC @jegadi_padriack @MehrangizC @Dee_Wallace @GabrielleStone @SaranneBensusan @tinklvsme It just occurred to me I have 4 weeks more of my broken leg in a splint before I can even try to walk. If you get REALLY bored we could skype therapy. Oh wait, the kind of therapy we need is not....um yeh, I have not heard "cracked" for many many years! Boy are you old - too!

  • xGaudion xGaudion (@xGaudion) reported

    @discord @SykeloneOW I really do hope you guys bring a separate option for how it was- because I really do not appreciate the current full screen process; this sincerely feels like 2015's Skype which was just as terrible at the time.

  • kikaytrekkie hathor2 (@kikaytrekkie) reported

    @KyokoMai @MichellePhan It's all over the news that zoom isnt safe and has had security issues since last yr. There is still skype (terrible pixelated but no zoombombing at least) or use #webex

  • HTownHarold H-Dawg (@HTownHarold) reported

    Docs doing teleconferencing with patients now is the in thing during this pandemic. But they still won’t Skype with you about your hemorrhoid issue. I know that now.

  • MMartynMusic Michael Martyn (@MMartynMusic) reported

    Quarantine Day 23: Grandpa’s Skype account is still not connected but we are confident we have isolated the problem and should have it resolved in 4-6 weeks.

  • femmeclaws annibyniaeth (@femmeclaws) reported

    the good thing about terrible webcam+skype call quality is that I've not shaved in days and its unclockable onscreen. yes I feel I feel like ripping my skin off but good god the freedom

  • TonerAL Amanda Toner (@TonerAL) reported

    New isolation culture: 🎶I should make a move, but I won't I know you probably thinking something is wrong Knowing if I do, then it won't be right I don't get down, on the first Skype! 🎶

  • avaanly baby hands (@avaanly) reported

    @father MS probably don't care too much, they've got Teams and it's doing very well right now. Wouldn't be surprised if eventually they scrap Skype tbh, because Discord is better for most and Skype for Business is both kinda bad and a competitor to their own better service.

  • dougscripts 𝗗𝗼𝘂𝗴 𝗔𝗱𝗮𝗺𝘀 🎵📺📜 (@dougscripts) reported

    Boy. You think your own Skype and Zoom connections are bad because of something on your own end. And then you see all these people on TV with the same problems (latency, drop out, rhinoangularities, etc).

  • bamboosgirl1 Karen Vernon (@bamboosgirl1) reported

    Happy to have made a service users happy today. Enabling Skype so she could have contact with her family. It is so hard when contact if denied due to #COVIDー19 and very important to help with #Mentalhealth too 😍

  • JosephWMead Joe Mead (@JosephWMead) reported

    @AdamTrueBendorf Sounds good. But first we'll have to do a phone call so you help get my Skype to work

  • suvyboy Suvy Bo (@suvyboy) reported

    @RealYeyoZa @cheesetrader1 @JayMan471 Then you can get sick and your friends can go ahead and get sick. And when you or one of your friends inevitably is unable to breathe, that's your problem. In the meantime, my generation will be drinking and having meals over Zoom or Skype.

  • floridalease emmanuel sanders 2020 ⚜️ (@floridalease) reported

    it’s honestly amazing how terrible Zoom is. it’s like Skype in 2008

  • SlyFawkesxxx Sly Fawkes ➡️ TEAs Nominated 2020 (@SlyFawkesxxx) reported

    One Skype session down. One more in a couple hours. Today is starting to get busy. 😈

  • platospalette 🤷🏽‍♂️ (@platospalette) reported

    @backlon More and more I wish Microsoft made their own messaging service, or at least completely revamped Skype into what Messenger and WhatsApp are.

  • NathanBFC Nathan J (@NathanBFC) reported

    @RFlavell @ConorHourihane @BarnsleyFC Been spoiled today, that Skype interview and the going up going down podcast special with him on. Just want him back in red now 😭

    @quad_rangle I got the most alarming email earlier (apparently) scheduling each SA for a Skype call one after the other, Friday COB. They need to slow down, these are my feelings we’re talking about

  • MeeraGhani #TaxTheRich for #BasicIncome (also #StayHome) (@MeeraGhani) reported

    Skype has major connectivity issues

  • WedgeLIVE Wedge LIVE! (@WedgeLIVE) reported

    @thatcherimboden Sure they're objectively terrible but I'll miss it. Helps me understand who the best candidates are. Be nice if they did a skype Q&A at least.

  • ha1331 Henrik Andersson (@ha1331) reported

    @CasPiancey I feel like their willingness to go the extra mile for their NY based users deserve a mention. Not many exchanges have their top staff providing help via Skype.

  • critchyboy Paul Critchley (@critchyboy) reported

    Still waiting for a resolution on this please!!! COVID helpline connected to @skype on my personal account down as it got locked - only getting so far with help and then silence! @MicrosoftHelps

  • clown4chan Hannah (@clown4chan) reported

    @trash_365 I'll have work till 18:30 and I don't know if I remember my Skype login data but exept from that I would join you if you'd want me to

  • percy_kokong Percy kokong (@percy_kokong) reported

    Last Night was talking with my Supplier in China it was the most sad skype call i ever made in my life He said some of the people who were working in his factory they don't know who survived who is dead due to lock down many people lost friends they don't even know as yet

  • DCurtainCall D. Curtains (@DCurtainCall) reported

    @kolat_jean @moliveiradev @moliveiradev i hear you....i hear you....@kolat_jean sanity comes in three ways.1-when there's a skype call between the kids and the blabber mouth,2-when the blabber mouth is watching the Service dog project stream.3 after 11pm.That's when i'm able to write,work,research :P

  • BUFFM0NA_BOT buff mona (@BUFFM0NA_BOT) reported

    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.

  • blindtwig Vur'Lune (@blindtwig) reported

    Waiting on my online class to start but Zoom isn't even opening lmfao This program is actually terrible, I'm amazed so many schools and colleges are using this over Discord, or even Skype, I'd gladly use either over Zoom

  • cjr1968 Catherine Rowlands 🕷 (@cjr1968) reported

    @Portal_Queen No, but it should be no different from a client joining a Skype call: as long as they are muted and not on video no problem.

  • jewnyr 🦥 (@jewnyr) reported

    can someone help me out with why i sound like ass on discord but not teamspeak, skype or xbox app

  • AnitaDublin8 Anita Ray (@AnitaDublin8) reported

    @STVNews @plyons45 Well, that's just broken me! Her son will be glad in time that he got to speak with her and she was in such good spirits though. My own Dad is in a NH and we can't visit - but the NH does Skype - but it's good he got to speak with her in person. RIP Vina 🖤

  • DiamondCrookOS Marcus Patterson (@DiamondCrookOS) reported

    I asked to get on a skype with a coworker of mine, and said hey if you have 10-15 min to spare I have a couple of questions. If you don't have the time to help or you just don't want to, that is cool and I understand. No hard feelings.

  • stxrryniqhtts 🤍 || playing new horizons (@stxrryniqhtts) reported

    For some backstory, my grandmas in a nursing home. Since Covid is circulating they've been doing Skype calls so we can still talk to her. Today my mom was busy on the phone during the time we had to call her so she told me to use my laptop and call. No issue

  • Skype Skype (@Skype) reported

    @tuhinkd There's an intelligent text filter to help reduce SMS clutter, data saver mode to reduce your data consumption when making Skype calls over a cellular network, and India-specific bots. Let us know if you need further assistance. 🙂 3/3

  • bobonumpty_ patricia kane (@bobonumpty_) reported

    @brawday @Richard98406447 @RantinScot Bypass nurse ask for a doctors consultation over the phone or Skype they should be geared up for that service like my local surgery ..and just explain your anxieties.. or if not happy higher . Up .. hope you get sorted soon xx

  • ca_palace CAP (@ca_palace) reported

    @DiveNtime The problem is they closed down the courts. They're going to start doing some stuff over Skype/Zoom but that's useless. We attorneys are seen as "non-essential." They did this on purpose.

    Anyone want to help a poor Gàidhlig student out and do some revision sessions and speaking sessions with him (I.e me😂) if interested please message me... 🙌🏼💛 #gaelic #skype

  • MyntIsFox Mynt (@MyntIsFox) reported

    @tutturutv We had been trying discord, Skype, etc. Last night we actually tried tutturutv! It worked well but we ran into the issue of netflix saying we cant use a proxy, and Hulu didnt give us a play button for any shows. I do love how similar it is to rabbit and I really hope it works!

  • monger1977 SocialDistancingDude (@monger1977) reported

    @10TV @OSUWexMed @CMEFCU @Donatos @OhioHealth Give me a break. I’m glad I’m watching 4. They are actually in studio and not home using some crappy Skype service where you can barely hear them

    We will have to go with a different software like Zoom if we can't find real help with Skype.

  • HowiePhillipsMA Vespasian (@HowiePhillipsMA) reported

    @ComfyCrush If you want to go down that rabbit hole, Microsoft owns Skype, so let the "BILL GATES" conspiracy theories flow there as well. I actually agree on TikTok and Zoom though. **** China.

  • NewsNResearch Elizabeth Newsn-Research (@NewsNResearch) reported

    @DulciDomi Yes, no (legal) inspections at the moment is driving down the rents by about $150-200 fm what I can see. They can do it by skype tho if the house is empty. Make a complaint to reiwa & mr plod, may be ur best chance. ASIC also made quite strict rules for real estate agents last wk

  • PetrusMax4 Pete Ross (@PetrusMax4) reported

    @HousatonicITS @GeorgWebb @PhillipsNanl @ReckoningTruth @paisleytears @Nancique @Rosemary100 He's an academic who wrote germ war legislation. Why only Skype interviews from his disheveled office with the camera practically on the ceiling, making him look like the prison guards are looking down on him from their catwalk.
