    Today Skype failed to keep me connected to a group call. It would disconnect me in a second after getting in the call.

    It's not always perfect, and every day it gets worse. Goddommot Microsoft, you dun ruin Skype

    Skype works fine with me, it's having both it and Chrome running that seems to slow my laptop the hell down.

    In their defense, I hear that pre-Microsoft Linux-Skype was useless...

    I've mostly started using Skype only as my backup for when Hangouts doesn't work.

    Given that G+ is kind of... unsettling to use (I rarely use G+ itself), I've always found Hangouts was quicker and let me do a lot more than Skype would.

    Skype just updated for iPhone. At least now my Skype doesn't crash every single fucking time it loads the chat history. :/

    Spoke too soon. Now Skype is trying to load over 100,000 messages from ONE contact's history and there's no way to stop it but delete him from my contacts.

    Main reason why I hated Skype ever since it came out, continued to hate it when it completely substituted MSN, and still hate it to this day. Trillian FTW!
    Really, Skype is weird. It's awkward to use/find setting and controls, it's heavy, chunky and I have no idea how many accounts I have lost because there's no way to recover old contacts, as I see it.

    I fixed my issue by downgrading Skype I think.

    Well I use Skype every once in a while but the one I communicate a lot with is either Trillian and strangely enough Party chat with PS4 or the PS app since it allows text with other players. No ads either.

    What's wrong with Skype? I haven't encountered any problems using it so far.
