  • fuckmylifecaps FUCK MY LIFE TWEETS (@fuckmylifecaps) reported

    Today, I was Skyping with a guy I‘m really into. I‘m not supposed to Skype at night, so when I heard my mum coming, I minimized the window. She walked in before I could mute my mic and started bitching me out for flushing my tampons down the toilet. FML

    @C19LongHauler @Hol_Jessica @preshitorian Mostly talking in specific circumstances like if I have to give a talk on Zoom or Skype. It also happened (more moderately) when walking. But it's really uneven i.e. I have periods when it's 99% min 96%. And others (in relapses) when it goes down in freefall.

    @Sarah_May1 @SkypeSupport I think you will have to contact your bank. I had a similar problem last year.

    What is a good VoIP service/iOS app to call voice lines internationally when FaceTime is not available? I have been using Skype and wondering if there is anything better out there?

  • PaulJumpwings paul Dray (@PaulJumpwings) reported

    @Skype I need to actually talk to someone, I have tried your help in twitter but they either can't read english or are stupid cause they keep asking the same questions with the same instructions that I repeatedly told them do not work...

  • hoodnewzmedia Hoodnewzmedia (@hoodnewzmedia) reported

    @satyanadella @verilylifesci @broadinstitute Would love to see Microsoft do something with Skype take what others are doing and make it better. Where is the language translator we saw years ago. Why can't AI help people to communicate in real time conversations in different languages.Why can't I have a headet Skype for free

    @matthaig1 Was just saying today actually, i think the thing im sick of the most is trying to think of things to do to fill the time. I couldn't motivate myself to read, cook, excercise, skype a mare or anything else this weekend. Weather doesn't help though, it'll be easier really soon

    @jonerp "Sometimes when you oversimplify an app or service, you harm it - or make it unrecognizable to those who built your audience." - Skype is the poster child for this.

    @Skype Is it okay to create a new Microsoft account to get help in this matter even tho it will not be connected with her Skype account whatsoever?

    Has anybody seen a similar problem? Several times now my cameras are not working on #MacOS are not working (built-in #FaceTIme & ext USB). It's not an app problem, neither FT, Zoom nor Skype have video. Last time it worked after a reboot (not this time). #RT welcome

  • loverofthelean joe ham (@loverofthelean) reported

    @Skype She can’t do the recovery since they changed the email address of her Skype account, is there any phone number to call regarding an issue like this?

  • ginkgomzd M Z Daryabeygi (@ginkgomzd) reported

    Did patents help Skype from having it's lunch eaten by zoom? Why are there still new chat platforms up and coming? Who would think that Email could still be competitive?

    @Skype I'm concerned for the wellbeing of one of my Skype contacts, but don't have enough information for his local police to help. I've sent a direct message with more information. I've been in touch with Skype support twice now, but no dice.

  • auroradobro Aurora (@auroradobro) reported

    @Sarah_May1 @SkypeSupport I guess you will need to block it via your bank or other payment service.
