  • alistairrbrown AlistairBrown (@alistairrbrown) reported

    @SiempreSols Just bought a similar pair, not managed to get them working with Skype though, but didn’t buy them for that, so not a problem.

  • SigittaLP Sigitta (@SigittaLP) reported

    My best friend just got her first smartphone. She's made it from using Skype and Reddit to WhatsApp and Reddit. Someone help me to sell her on Signal and Telegram!

  • checkjthomas uMadBro? (@checkjthomas) reported

    @Skype After it stood there for a while i forgot about it and did something else. When i returned it was working again so i no longer have the issue. Thanks for responding. This was the 1st time this happened with years of skype use. probably a fluke.

  • inturdnet Jasper Adamson (@inturdnet) reported

    @nwrmbing @HalfTangible Brianna claimed in an interview that she was in hiding after receiving threats. She made the error of doing so via Skype and her living room seen in previous interviews was still visible behind her. This is consistent with Brianna's tendencies as a chronic liar.

  • ErnabelD Ernabel Demillo (@ErnabelD) reported

    The problem with Skype board meetings is all the technical difficulties.

  • SyphnNyaa Mia (@SyphnNyaa) reported

    @SpaceNRobots i do really like using sonika, she's pretty understandable if you mix and tune her a bit louder than usual. the problem is that some of her phonemes are almost inaudible they're so muffled or distorted...... and the skype sound.......

  • j_angliss Jonathan Angliss (@j_angliss) reported

    @livearchivist Possibly, but had no issues with usb-c hub, just Thunderbolt. If I could get Microsoft to release the PowerShell tools for AD/Skype/Teams/Azure under PS Core, then I'd swap to Linux.

  • savivila Savi Vila (@savivila) reported

    @migueldeicaza Absolutely true. I use wireshark in background always. And I just finished a Skype meeting with some one in Kiev. In my next login Facebook suggest me the same person as a friend. And the ads also change becaus this interaction. The inspection with wireshark was even more creepy

    oh hey, i was boutta go to bed, I know we couldnt skype tonight but that's alright, good night girl, I see you tomorrow. * falls down *

  • rjmunro Robert (Jamie) Munro (@rjmunro) reported

    @gigaclear The World Wide Web is just one service that runs on the Internet. It's not the same thing. Other services include email, IM (like whatsapp), Skype, remote desktops, and lots of things only techies use.

  • _Edwards_Mike Mike Edwards (@_Edwards_Mike) reported

    @Skype Skype tweeting like they’ve just remembered the login to their 2012 account...

  • wammdoggo 1001.110 (@wammdoggo) reported

    reading a report about a new student and it says doesn't do homework gets bored doesn't like this that etc and he switched from another teacher, that alone is always pressure. also his skype login is nono. my thoughts exactly.

  • Treestumped Tríona Tree Farrell (@Treestumped) reported

    @Skype I'm currently in America and your program is refusing to let me into my own account because it won't send any verification code via text message. This is extremely poor service and I'm relying on it for a business call in a few hours. Please advise.

  • WPhilosopher Michael Scott (@WPhilosopher) reported

    @dankennik @HVACPerformance @luisbaram Besides do your carbon footprint. There are websites for this. Travel, particularly for pleasure occasionally it's not the biggest problem. The bigger problem is closer to home. Hence why mobile phones, Skype, internet are part of the solution and not the problem.

  • ChristianCawley Christian Cawley (@ChristianCawley) reported

    @Andy_Van_Kay Hi Andy - not sure why you're finding it quiet, but I'll see what I can do to boost it next week. We're currently relying on Skype for group chats, which is causing drops and artefacts. Many of these I edit manually, but it's not always possible to fix. Thanks for messaging!

  • DefenseTrades DefenseTrades (@DefenseTrades) reported

    @PlugInFUD What type of a service is this. I don't pay you $139.98 a month for you not to skype me your tv channels from your phone.

  • mychaincoins chain unchain (@mychaincoins) reported

    @SkypeSupport running Catalina 10.15.2 (19C57). support faq didn't help, had tried it b4. In fact, waiting helped. I had to let the starting skype run about 10 min on the start spinning wheel screen (shown as not-reacting process in activity mngr), with CPU at >90% then eventually worked. bad.

  • the_Sage_BB the Sage (@the_Sage_BB) reported

    @sarahhollowell @blondewithab00k For longer talks I usually put my phone down leaning against something, or use my PC. Hell, I watch Netflix synchronized with @CaffeinPrincess on skype.

    "The situation in Wuhan is very, very dangerous," said Yassin Abdi Said, one of several Somali students who spoke to VOA's Somali service via Skype. "The city is on lockdown, most shops are closed. Authorities are not allowing anyone to go out or come in." Wuhan is the epicenter

    I knew it was only a matter of time. Finally broke down crying about Kobe on Skype tonight with Sean. I started talking about a different time in my life and how much it meant to me and I just... I think I need to write a whole blog post about this 😕 maybe it'll be therapeutic

  • TotalSecurily Henny '#TrumpResign' Roggy (@TotalSecurily) reported

    @GoogleStadia Maybe closing all browsers but the one with incognito helped. Also, I had skype running in the background. I'm not sure if it should affect the game stream in any way, but I closed it as well. I still have issues. But they are much less now.

  • arcanasphere Arcanasphere (@arcanasphere) reported

    Skype just throttled my hard drive. Service host: connected devices. Disk usage was in the red again.

  • whatsthebuzz_1 ✨💫MS IRONICAL💫✨ (@whatsthebuzz_1) reported

    Someone opened my Skype. The last time that happened there were phone numbers in my drop down to foreign countries that I never made.

  • UshaNirmala UN (@UshaNirmala) reported

    @gchellappan Tolled providers in India are always blamed for signal and lack of infra issues. This feature allows interconnectivity of internet and traditional telecom to improve that. OTT like WA, Skype are not tolled providers yet..

    I had to help my older coworker set up a skype account so she could skype her daughter while shes on her mission. & I may or may not have set her password to bjlover69. I showed her how to change it but she said she is keeping it 😅😅

  • ianlewins Ian Lewins (@ianlewins) reported

    @BritSPED No. Done using Zencastr which simply involves clicking a link. Nothing to download and then works like a Skype call but much better audio quality. I can email this to whoever you think best to discuss and fix up a date and time.

  • itsJoNada Jo (@itsJoNada) reported

    Skype for Business been down for two days so my efficiency at work is down by exactly 1.38%, thinking of taking the rest of the week off until they fix it.

    @SkypeSupport Thank you. No one would get back to me and I’ve tried every avenue of customer service avail on website. Glad this is resolved.

  • wiredprairie Aaron C (@wiredprairie) reported

    @LeroyD20 And Discord was the clunkiest experience for us. Inconsistent audio. Weird UI for this usage. Skype was better overall. We now use paid service from Zoom. 200% better than free Skype offerings. We use video too now. Just "voice" was too much like a business conference call.

    Just a quick note to @skype that after stealing my £14 credit, I will now never use your service again. It was shit anyway. Thanks.

  • summoneralisha Noelle@tired (@summoneralisha) reported

    @skydragondive Big yikes! 😖 yeah I get that. Before I finally quit RP all together, I winded down to only RPing with a small and very specific group of friends in chatrooms or in skype, cuz I was so tired of the childish people. I hope you’re able to figure something out that’s less stressful

  • DebsCarr Deborah Carr (@DebsCarr) reported

    @AndreinaCordani I can't help with Skype, but you could maybe try Zoom, it's similar, but easy to use, I think it's free to set up and you send a link to the other person's email address and they just click on it for it to download and begin the meeting.

  • AndreinaCordani Andreina Cordani (@AndreinaCordani) reported

    Help! Have sent a @Skype invitation to someone in Canada, she has sent an invitation for me. Now we both have screen saying "waiting for xx to accept your invitation" but can't actually see each other's invitations. I have a 30 minute window to speak to this person. VV frustrated

  • shezza_t Shezza (@shezza_t) reported

    Just off a Skype call with tech support who wanted to see me log in, reset my password, retype my new password and get the same error message; just to be sure I wasn't havering.

    @MetroSupport mobile data is not working. Missed a very very important sales call via skype which in turn made me lose money. Thanks Metro. I will be switching to a more reliable service today.

  • CloudChaosNet CloudChaos (@CloudChaosNet) reported

    Easy solution. Drop you like a bad habit. You're service is nothing compared to Skype, which has been around for alot longer and and has way better features. You should rebrand to grASShopper™.

    @Davemzzyyzz Don't be obtuse, Dave! I'm talking to the people begging for Skype sessions, etc. & To answer your question; it could be considered a service! I like to think of it more as me going to the bank & withdrawing money. Little effort on my behalf, but a big reward. As it should be. 😌

  • SmoochSomeCooch 卡約翰(LV:100) (@SmoochSomeCooch) reported

    @UltraBaller Skype is probably best bet... problem is everone has to be on lan to have a decent audio. You can probably keep it strictly audio instead of video so it would be less choppy

  • LumpyFatRoll Lumpy Fat Roll (@LumpyFatRoll) reported

    @UltraBaller Google or Skype would probably be your best bet. That being said, there is a delay so talking over each other would be an issue. I’ll just drive over for a podcast, homie.
