Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • tilksh who is john galt (@tilksh) reported from Azusa, California

    @poTAEtopoTAHto @JaredRn15 @CMUniversity Safety is important. Class material can be delivered en masse via Skype or with other applications in dire times. Its implied students will receive X amount of hours of instruction. If that doesn’t occur, the students come up short. That’s not right. You pay for a service!

  • TwelveInOregon Come Home Bruce (@TwelveInOregon) reported from Forest Grove, Oregon

    My boss is very aware that the internet is down in the office I'm working out of today. I told him to call or text if he needs something. Just ran up to my other office to find he has been sending me messages on skype all day. The Skype that is on my computer only...

  • PierreJoye PierreJoye (@PierreJoye) reported from Vadhana, Bangkok

    @ubuntu @skype little issue. Fresh install, launched, crashed the desktop, back to login screen. ubuntu 18.04.

  • findlawrence Lawrence Biscontini (@findlawrence) reported from Fajardo Gardens, Fajardo Municipio

    @Skype and @SkypeBusiness have been down for days with “call to go” service for which we pay. Step up team and fix! @SkypeSupport

  • GP_Beat Beat Bucher 🇨🇭&🇨🇦 (@GP_Beat) reported from Pincourt, Québec

    My latest #Skype auto-update broke my login.. If you're on 8.39 build and can't login, go to the website and download build 8.40.. Login fixed! #MVPBuzz

  • houckamania Steven Houck (@houckamania) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @SoftwareIdeas That’s an interesting white label of Slack. Skype for Business is a terrible product and should be shut down.

  • oladavidd Working Class Hero (@oladavidd) reported from Karu, Federal Capital Territory

    @ReginaldDennys @TanyaCompas @_AD3X Please read all I wrote again. We have water, electricity & high speed internet so y’all can skype/FaceTime your folks back home to tell them how terrible Africa is YOU choose to dig us another well,so you can have a finished project & never have to come back after your photo op

  • spokenrepublic Jahmaul (@spokenrepublic) reported from Brampton, Ontario

    Good morning kiss 92.5 i want to introduce myself my name is #jahmaulallen I am a customer service agent for @AmericanAir I did a dance on the ramp and went VIRAL Ellen has reached out to me and I have Skype with her editor Brooke and they were planning on having me on the show.

  • RBlumkeSIA Rachel Blumke (@RBlumkeSIA) reported from Indianapolis, Indiana

    @casas_jimmy I created an entire scenario that you needed our help. If we could Skype with you at some point to discuss the book before the end of the year my team would be thrilled!

  • ladyyeva lady eva (@ladyyeva) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    @hannahdentata @winedarkseas Oh no that sucks ugh yeah I see how that’s a problem Skype is better than no viewing at all though imo probably nothing too dodgy there

  • simmerpuck Rob Simpson (@simmerpuck) reported from Toronto, Ontario

    which reminds me ... @Skype holy crap, good luck detaching yourself from this inanimate behemoth. haven’t used in years, apparently no way to quit, and I have some credit I assume I’m never getting back. heard of “too big to fail”. how about “too big for customer service”.

  • danforhan Daniel Forhan (@danforhan) reported from Ann Arbor, Michigan

    We got shut down (they literally turn off the lights and then we play next point wins) at 11:00, got some food and was back on @Twitter from that point until right now. Lots of emails, direct messages, tweets, skype conversations at work, and software documentation. Normal day.

  • findlawrence Lawrence Biscontini (@findlawrence) reported from Fajardo Gardens, Fajardo Municipio

    @SkypeSupport On latest iPhone and software my calls-to-go direct #s do not work— Skype error message plays for days now whether from desktop Skype app MacBook or my phone. Hope U fix soon and refund February.

  • findlawrence Lawrence Biscontini (@findlawrence) reported from Fajardo Gardens, Fajardo Municipio

    @SkypeSupport The error is your own recording saying that there are technical issues and we have to try later. I changed nothing.

  • HollowSquid Jack Holcombe (@HollowSquid) reported from Saint Andrews, Scotland

    @Tobit_Dehnen Completely agree! I was due to be down in Bristol twice in 10 days (from St Andrews...). Luckily I got accepted by the first so didn't have to go back down. I definitely don't feel I could have done myself justice over Skype.
