    @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

    @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

  • BrentPiaskoski Brent Piaskoski (@BrentPiaskoski) reported

    Just had my first Skype therapy session. Did little for my issues of 'people not taking me seriously' to see "Psychology for Dummies" on my psychiatrist's bookshelf.

  • _lilmamalyss lyss✨ (@_lilmamalyss) reported

    trying to help my mom figure out her Skype issues is making me realize I am old

  • Product_AP PAP (@Product_AP) reported

    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.

  • Selena_Adera 🍂Selena Adera🍂 (@Selena_Adera) reported

    22/Was able to Skype with Dr. A again on April 4. He looked at me, asked if I needed an ambulance. I wanted to know what will happen to me. I will have to wait a few hours before medical help arrives. They will take me somewhere that's been already out of space days ago.

    @Skype Skype win 10 and Skype for windows had Bluetooth issue for damn long years and never get fixed forever.

  • benappleby Ben Appleby (@benappleby) reported

    @CreanTim @schnoll Under the hood we are watching the Skype for Business service plan as that indicates when all of the audio & policy infra across Teams has been provisioned. You likely have users that have Teams enabled and the Skype for Business plan disabled.

    @ctappancs @schnoll Hi Fre, For reasons that are little more complex to explain over twitter, under the hood we are watch the Skype for Business service plan as that indicates when all of the audio & policy infra across Teams has been provisioned. Those users must have S4B assigned.

  • gxuosi gill 🦷 (@gxuosi) reported

    it’s my uncle and his girlfriend cause he can’t go anywhere without her apparently. he’s having tech issues with his ipad and iphone and needs help fixing them so he can attend skype group calls in lieu of the in person meetings he normally attends

  • prumfsy prsht the boy (@prumfsy) reported

    Starting to think I had Covid here. Wish they could come home but understand the need to quarantine. It would help if Skype servers weren't acting up; we haven't been able to video chat in over 5 weeks

  • redrummy Ryan The Red (@redrummy) reported

    BlueJeans, Hangouts, Skype, Teams, Webex, Zoom. Twitch. No, not the service, just *twitch*.

  • BarryMeat Mayor Barry Meat (@BarryMeat) reported

    Out for my afternoon constitutional around the grounds, interrupted by a Skype call from my secretary. She'd left the camera on so I could see down her ear. Still, at least I know where she's stockpiling her cheese.

  • LawrenceTFitz Lawrence Fitzgerald🌈✝️🕊️🇺🇸 (@LawrenceTFitz) reported

    @DeAnna4Congress Skype is owned by Microsoft and I don't want ANYTHING that had to work Bill Gates! He only stepped down a month ago...

  • glaciogeoLives Libby Ives (@glaciogeoLives) reported

    I never really had any issues w/ it besides it having obnoxious push notifications before any other software did, but it seems that the people agree - skype has always been awful. good to know

  • Yhsanave 𝔜𝔥𝔰𝔞𝔫𝔞𝔳𝔢 (@Yhsanave) reported

    Still find it weird how everyone decided to use Zoom, a program that no one had ever heard of, over anything better like Discord, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc. and then was surprised when it had major security issues.

  • johnclarkdamico John D'Amico (@johnclarkdamico) reported

    Paleography session this week switched from Zoom to Skype and all the connectivity issues went away. It's almost like using a pre-existing, stress-tested service works better!

  • JFisk20 HR_dancer (@JFisk20) reported

    @lpuuniversity security issues, Zoom has paused all, feature updates for 90 days. There are a number of alternative present, example, Skype has launched more feature for multiple video conferencing, that too without logging in. Hope LPU shows concerns of this and take appropriate action.

  • adamj1974 Adam Stover (@adamj1974) reported

    @Marc_Bertrand you can't be more wrong. You should just shut the Mic off and close down the Skype. Just sad. Hardy is 100% correct. You sound like a bafoon.

  • matherto Tömás (@matherto) reported

    @mikeheyes1 @LiamCarrigg Did get mentioned by my supervisor that I can volunteer with the NHS to just be a listener for someone via Skype/Facetime though so I'm gonna look into that. Doesn't count as therapy/counselling but it's something that I can do to help.

    Skype conference calls are terrible. You hear like every third word

    Putting a call for help out to the Star Wars fans of #NativeTwitter - I need to interview 2 to 4 people for my qualitative methods class. Interviews should only be about 20 minutes or less and will be done via Zoom or Skype. Thank you in advance! @johnniejae @VinceSchilling

  • MrMaxBoivin MrMaxBoivin ✝️ (@MrMaxBoivin) reported

    @DeAnna4Congress @getongab Skype has been bought up by Microsoft and it sucks. Yes, Zoom is terrible outside the audio-video quality of the call, but compare the audio-video quality of Zoom vs any other, you'll understand why people switched.

  • Justatittle11 wheel (@Justatittle11) reported

    Telephone conference. Or Skype. All approved. If your doctors aren’t providing you this option, then they are in error.

  • awesomejatti91 Amandeep Kaur (@awesomejatti91) reported

    The problem when I wake up early is that I get hungrier faster. It’s okay I had a Skype interview. #rainyday #COVID #day27ofquarantine

    @pagalpanchi Its weird bc everyone could do conference calls on skype before this. Don't know why it has to be zoom now when it has so many issues.

    @desimojito If he has computer and।his parents have smartphomes n he can use any one of the video conferencing tool for voice or video call. If they have feature phone then he can use Skype or Google service and buy credits to make phone calls on feature phone

  • RichardNorthey Richard Northey (@RichardNorthey) reported

    @matkinsj Hope you’re having a good birthday. My internet went down fifteen minutes before a Skype call I was charging for which lasted two hours. Rather embarrassing!

  • Govtchecker Be Deligent (@Govtchecker) reported

    @LP_lovinglife @ToLearned @LD56k @GoinsStrong @davereaboi The problem.witb zoom was how.they configured the free side of the program. They have now enabled security settings that were on the pay side. They should have had them in the first place but at least that has been fixed. Still, other options out there too. We are using skype

  • mangmangmang the Mangalorian (@mangmangmang) reported

    look no google, the problem is that Skype for Business is breaking the internet connection, not that the internet connection is breaking Skype for Business

  • klobuchar_s Amy Klobuchar’s vibrating hair (@klobuchar_s) reported

    @DeAnna4Congress @getongab Zoom was always a solution in search of a problem. How it was better than Skype, I don’t know.

  • seyitaylor ST (@seyitaylor) reported

    @yellowcardio Yeah. I mean, none of the competitors is actually terrible (maybe except Skype) but it definitely has the best name imho

    @AdamSchefter Have IT guys ship the hardware to the coaches. Then Skype them to set it up. If any issues arise then remote access in and fix it. It’s 2020 and this really isn’t an issue GOD DAMN IT.

  • jpkraken22 jpkraken22 (@jpkraken22) reported

    @desimojito Only quick solution I can see is using a paid online service like Skype to make calls to phones for now if possible. But yes, this is unjustified. I was thinking about what if my laptop stops working right now, broke into a cold sweat.

  • shuvro4ever Shuvro (@shuvro4ever) reported

    @FarihaMn Zoom is having a lot of security and privacy related problems. It’s better just to move to skype.

  • ishitpatni Ishit Patni (@ishitpatni) reported

    @cmankad @Manu19774gmail1 There's big data security issue with Zoom, data is being routed through China and leaked as well, the company has confirmed it themselves. Use Skype or WebEx instead, old is gold. 😄😄

  • SnrRtr M Joseph (@SnrRtr) reported

    @mitchellvii Skype is a Microsoft product and requires more bandwidth than Zoom to video conference. Where I am (Comcast) there are intermittent problems with the signal. Bandwidth drops off the chart when all the teens wake up in the early afternoon.
