  • TheRichWoods Rich Woods (@TheRichWoods) reported

    @WinObs @NorthFaceHiker @Skype @SkypeInsider @MSEdgeDev @onedrive @Windows Now that's just making excuses for them. It doesn't matter if I set up a lot of PCs. It's a matter of settings syncing not working properly.

  • qForce1 Krypto & His Human Pet (@qForce1) reported

    @TheRichWoods @NorthFaceHiker @Skype @SkypeInsider @MSEdgeDev @onedrive @Windows Bad is the understatement. Microsoft gets down the field so well, but seems to, more times than not, get stopped or run out of steam/interest at the 1 yard line.... across the board. They have serious focus issues there. Always have...always w....

    me before my first interview for the au pair: change clothes, brush hair, make sure skype is working, write down questions, anxiously wait for it me after 4 interviews: pajamas, no bra, messy bun, disgusting face, no preparation, ready to cancel it and go to bed

  • MOTMCudder Jacob (@MOTMCudder) reported

    @h3h3productions @KEEMSTAR @andymilonakis @anything4views Daniel can’t read. If he could, he would’ve seen you said it was a conspiracy theory a few tweets ago. New theory: keem is a team to help his show because he can’t actually read. He needs them to tell him the news and read off replies to his tweets via a Skype call.

  • pkartachov paul (@pkartachov) reported

    This guy used to be in a skype group that was very dear to my heart, it's heartbreaking for me to see him like this. If you can help him any way, please do so. ko-fi linked in the tweet

  • __sarahsinger Sarah Singer (@__sarahsinger) reported

    @world_on_a_wire Expect the unexpected! I did one phone AND video interview (sound issues on their end), had a fire alarm go off in the middle of another interview, and found that, even when I tested my camera angle using Skype or FaceTime, the committee could always see more than I'd anticipated

  • xRyga Ryga (@xRyga) reported

    @Gamblesface I don't miss Skype itself but I kinda miss those days. I've lost contact with basically everyone I used to chat with there and I don't remember my login :c

  • LaNomadita Vicki Brown (@LaNomadita) reported

    @bengoldacre I'm in South America. At the end of August I posted my proxy vote request form. At the end of October it arrived in UK. There were some issues. Managed to resolve via emails, Skype calls and new digital request form. Mum is now proxy voter. She sent my postal vote on Monday ✊

    @oliverjones1988 Oh my. I don't understand why I'm not getting DM's, maybe it's my computer, have had massive issues with it. Can't use phone at work. Email should work, bizarre as I haven't seen any of them O.o I have a very busy weekend, sigh, but defo will Skype at some point x

  • falconhamada_90 Falcon Hamada 🇮🇶 (@falconhamada_90) reported

    Unfortunately I cannot create a new account here . I hope to solve the problem immediately please @Skype hope that making an account becomes like the method adopted in Viber program, writing the number, then waiting for a confirmation message and then activating an account

  • lamb_up lamby (@lamb_up) reported

    @SweetHeathen @brittaaany3089 @UNIRockTV @SteveMcRae_ @Jo12883350 @countrygirl3702 It’s absolutely true. I also think whatever delay goes on technically doesn’t help. I’ve noticed that on other streams with the both of them too. Idk if it’s Skype or whatever, but I think it makes them think they are interrupting each other.

    @SkypeSupport Awful on line chat service. My CC was charged for a new subscription and no one can help me with my skype account. Is there a 365 subscription without skype

  • H02854602 H (@H02854602) reported

    @HamillHimself I hear alot about how she travels from place to place, forgive a boomer but couldn't she Skype and other social media. That way cutting down her footprint to nearly zero and stay in school. In this new world there's no reason to travel except for vacation.

  • KScott1982 Kevin Scott (@KScott1982) reported

    @AlwayzInTrouble I remember I was offshore and I was told I could go home for my son birthday and I told him I’d be there. When they told me I couldn’t leave and I had to tell him over Skype that I couldn’t come home, he wiped his eyes and was crushed and I broke down like a fraction.

  • MiaGrey_Darker Mia Grey (@MiaGrey_Darker) reported

    @LGrey_Darker *hearing the skype tone on my laptop ,i rush and fall down on the bed, pressing the answer button and Lil's face pops up. I can feel a tear pop up seeing her. I missed my bestie and since all that's going on we haven't really talked that much. * " bestie. Its really you.">

  • IAmPlatts ℙ 𝕝 ā 𝕥 𝕥 𝕤 🇪🇺🏳️‍🌈 (@IAmPlatts) reported

    @OhHeyJacob I need you to send an american number I have set up on Skype an sms. Basically, the number won’t receive texts so Skype need a couple of test texts to identify the problem.

  • VessOnSecurity Vess (@VessOnSecurity) reported

    @campuscodi When my padawan discovered exactly the same issue in Skype for Linux and I reported it, Microsoft was like "ohh, no biggie, it's not an RCE". Morons. (Then silently fixed it without giving us credit.)

    In other news I have to skype a profsssor in 6 minutes for an overview of the class because he couldn’t be in his office today, and he already makes me nervous, but I’m also very unprepared and anxious af because I chugged too much coffee so much hands are shaking send hELP

    @destructatron04 Not anymore, that's ben broken for years. Skype finally closed that hole, I want this on all platforms, win dows, mac, and iOs. and google stopped app cloners for this reason.

  • NickTheITDude Nick Salz (@NickTheITDude) reported

    Have CEO from parent company in town. She has issue with Skype. We cannot fix local. Ask parent company IT for help. Remote support asks me to reboot PC. I noticed that he had been entering CEO pw while working. I ask for PW, am given PW.

    @BSNLCorporate @SanjayDhotreMP @DrJitendraSingh @PMOIndia @narendramodi Can't even do Skype calls to client, Not a big business owner but small businesses have to run in J&K we need internet and this is how @BSNLCorporate @BSNL_JK is providing service, why not privatize these not performing org.

  • EllaMinty Ella Minty (@EllaMinty) reported

    @saq3 @shayandahalf @TheSarahDiaa @shelo9 @jonathangard @alex_malouf You’re right, Shaheeda - in most countries, WhatsApp & Skype are a given. There’s nothing stopping UAE charging tourists, at the points of entry, $/£ 2-3. That tax would certainly help towards connectivity costs across the country etc. Where there’s a will, there’s always a way

  • AgefriendlyMCR Paul McGarry (@AgefriendlyMCR) reported

    Train Hell pt 367: I know they help it, but two big blokes coughing every 30 seconds to London. A lot of coughing and Pat Metheny at full volume isn't doing the trick. Maybe Rage Against the Machine. And the fella having a Skype meeting. Really. I should stay home.

  • mistress_rook SavageMzRook (@mistress_rook) reported

    @xclubby @CandyWithAK69 @petalkinks One more thing. PayPal doesn't help our camscores. Get w the program & buy tokens-- its the same $$! I think a model would have to be stupid to charge less for a skype show paid with PayPal that can be easily canceled & the model loses but hey you got to ***!

  • davepdotorg Dave Pearson (@davepdotorg) reported

    @katebevan Perhaps, but the big problem here I'd say is the apparent lack of warning. As I said, when Skype support was dropped there was months of warning that it was going away. And the fact a fix is supposed to be coming suggests it's not really an out of support issue.

  • timbo_baggins Tim (@timbo_baggins) reported

    @chrisphin Each caller records their “end” locally and uploads the audio file to you via Dropbox, for example. That negates call issues due to line delay, dropouts, Skype “Cyloning” etc. A better microphone helps but the resultant increase in audio quality is worth it.
