  • SaintLo__ Sarah Fan Account (@SaintLo__) reported

    We’ve been using Skype and the glitches just get more infuriating. Constantly freezing, audio connection issues if using a Bluetooth device, decides if it wants to ring or not, camera shuts off on its own and won’t come back on without ending the call.

  • ScottishJohn2 Scottish John (@ScottishJohn2) reported

    @RichieAllenShow I've been calling , i don't know if i have a problem with my skype. Have you noticed me.?

  • lanci53 Nick Lanciani (@lanci53) reported

    The universe doesn't want us to podcast today. Audio issues? Check. Skype issues? Check. Meteors falling from the sky? Probably next.

  • donmarksjr Don Marks Jr. *BLM* (@donmarksjr) reported

    @ATFulemin Been using teams for months, and only had the recent problems. Skype was a mess for chat history, audio quality and god forbid you want to see moving faces in your meetings. However if you're experience is different -then, as you said elsewhere we'll have to agree to disagree.

    @colinmadland @rossolson No intent ABSOLUTELY matters. It is a foundational principle of our legal system. However, as I said, this is no more “systemic” than Skype or Zoom not working well for me because I have a beard.

    @AKACreation @RockerSBM @mraftw Hi brother Jamie Coast recoup is not crucial here I would say it would have been if the buyer wasSony Microsoft is massive and 7.5B is not an issue trust me just remember they paid bigger numbers on things that didn't do a much of a recoup: Skype 8.5 B Nokia 7.2 B LinkedIn 26.2 B

  • Wappingraces George (@Wappingraces) reported

    Your periodic reminder that when you dial in by phone to a zoom/teams/Skype meeting and blame IT issues, no one believes a word of it. No one. You may as well send them a picture of you in your pyjamas on the sofa.

  • Chandril7 Chandril (@Chandril7) reported

    Hi @Mad_In_America, loved your thoughts. I am filming a documentary on the issue for the ESRC Film Festival. Would you like to be interviewed? Won't take more than ten minutes of your time over MS Teams or Skype.

  • PerJohanna Johanna (@PerJohanna) reported

    @tapairportugal i have a problem with my reservation. i've been calling your service for 1 hour, they cut me off. i get no answer. i've tried messenger and skype, nothing. what's this deplorable customer service? you can buy a ticket but never get good customer service.

  • Dumpforsp Dumpfor (@Dumpforsp) reported

    @e_lufc Same here I was in a Skype call and had those paint with the volume down. Yes I had to mute my microphone too

  • XilleIlahi ظلِ الہٰی (@XilleIlahi) reported

    @RizWanKenobi_ @ahsanzawar @saaadmalikk it's a bare bones product. and Skype has connectivity issues here

  • VickForcella Vick Forcella (@VickForcella) reported

    @doctorow One day my Skype account suddenly had the same password as my MS account that was the same as the login into my PC. Lost my Skype credit. Reinstalled Windows and killed that MS account.

  • Taylorta84 TamTam (@Taylorta84) reported from Denver, Colorado

    Today my boss questioned my “activity” on Skype.... like I’m not working 10+ hours every single day

  • donald_soto00 Donald Soto (@donald_soto00) reported

    Because of my African American military service chief has now been approved by the same group of skype groups, I will always defend Religious Freedom!

  • DrVforOneHealth Vie •JusticeForBreonnaTaylor• (@DrVforOneHealth) reported

    @DavidDa83275401 Email and mail the request for help. Then, call. Write down what you want your message to be when you call; have a few bullet points to relay, them ask if they have time to meet. Zoom or Skype are great for this- you just need internet and a device w/ audio + video (phone) 2/

  • BUFFM0NA_BOT buff mona (@BUFFM0NA_BOT) reported

    Im a nonthreatening feminist boy, come talk to me on Skype! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘systematic’ means.

  • Silentpolarbear Polarr (@Silentpolarbear) reported

    @discord fix you shitty program I'm tired of calls dropped ever 2 minutes for the past 2 days holy **** skype is a better client at this point.

  • TheOnlyTaps Tapiwa Winston Muza (@TheOnlyTaps) reported

    @Nenetey_101 Zoom had major privacy issues tho in the past till that spike in people working/learning from home that came with covid? So a lot of companies still opting for Microsoft teams & Skype I would imagine

  • garbagehuman0 chaotic depressed queer (@garbagehuman0) reported

    you know what would really help make me want to ******* shoot myself less during pres debates? if they're not supposed to be talking, just mute the ******* mic. literally skype figured this out 15 years ago, major news networks should be able to do it.

  • ToddThompson15 Todd Thompson (@ToddThompson15) reported

    @DeadGators Maybe they can also show down the phone calls to my office, the phone calls to my cell phone, Skype messages, Skype for business messages, Teams chats, and phone messages. Oops, I forgot the Zoom, Google meet, and webex chats.

    @Anam98707 @ssly_funny Your time, your choice of country.. And Google chat or Skype, if need be.. Calm down on those adhominem.. It's a sign of defeat before we even started

  • drkninja2k5 drkninja2k5 (@drkninja2k5) reported

    @julz_life_ My partner would start fights so I would punch her so she wouldn't have to pay for a divorce while I was trying to get her to seek marriage guidance even the GP was ofterning her help but she refused than while on skype i had proof she was hitting me and starting fights.

  • ThinkNigeria3 ThinkNigeria (@ThinkNigeria3) reported

    @nigimmigration Good day PRO. I tried reaching out to the embassies in New York and Washington DC but all efforts yielded no fruit. My question: when will PASSPORT RENEWAL service return in the US? More so, can interviews be done via Zoom or Skype for distant applicants, say Alaska residents?

  • natasa__b Natasa Bansagi (@natasa__b) reported

    @KRCRColton Miss you guys too! It's so hard to see what you're going through. Wish I could help. Just know I'm thinking about you and sending you all my support! Would be so cool to Skype with the newsroom some day :)

  • ryanG_tweets Ryan Glendenning (@ryanG_tweets) reported

    Micheal needs to stop digging it won't help him if he keeps pushing this. Grace is a nasty piece of work. There's always skype or why coudent Grace and Micheal come to a compromise like Micheal visiting Tianna at weekends or something #Corrie

  • MarkStewart1337 Mark Stewart (@MarkStewart1337) reported

    @MSFT365Status And what about MS Teams, Skype for Business, MS Outlook access issues? Keep getting logged out, or unable to connect....

  • scottjohnson Scott Johnson (@scottjohnson) reported

    @troldann We don't use skype. And no, not all of us can. And if we did, HUGELY prone to problems. One crash and it's all dead. And not all of have mics that will make a difference. What you're getting on our discord audio is what you'd get if we recorded separate tracks.
