    Lots of people think this isn't the case, but it does happen. For years the same communities were claiming Elliot Rodger was their god. And when I was a kid, images and videos of tragedies like this would get spammed in Skype and Mumble chats. This issue hasn't gone away.

  • YuriKah95 DatYuriDouj (@YuriKah95) reported

    My Mother needed my help figuring out what was wrong with a Skype call she was trying to set up for her business. I had to point out how she didn't have a webcam or a microphone...bless her.

  • cavaticat Charlotte A. Cavatica (@cavaticat) reported

    @Skype a month ago, at a stoplight, I was swiping apps closed on my iPhone. I put the phone down and then, glancing at it one more time, saw the bar along the top of the screen indicating a call had been placed it was 95F out, I had on no makeup, I was listening to shitty pop music

  • LizzyMacTownie Lizzy Mac (@LizzyMacTownie) reported

    @zeneafsgirl @KatWhispurrer My Corsair headset mic is terrible about picking up noise. I love the headset, and it's fine for skype or discord, but for recording videos, I'd want something much clearer.

  • FernanGonzalezT Fernan Gonzalez (@FernanGonzalezT) reported

    @SkypeSupport This doesn't work. I have given feedback in the past and the problem keeps happening. Please note that I asked how to raise a complaint.

  • realdylanmadden 𝗗𝘆𝗹𝗮𝗻 𝗠𝗮𝗱𝗱𝗲𝗻 (Calm&Collected) (@realdylanmadden) reported

    Making a change to the service. You get a 1 hour skype call and 3 months of email support. 2 slots are left (yes that quick). DM me for consultation details and let’s get started.

    @StevieInACan @ContraPoints hey im making a video addressing this topic you have been very polite and i was wondering if you would be willing to skype for a video about this issue i think that its a discussion that would help prevent this from happening in the future or at least spread awarness

  • ABeardWalks Andrew White (@ABeardWalks) reported

    @HarryWatson1988 @ChrisLawSNP Travelling to London for a business meeting is the problem, not the mode of travel. Skype, WebEx Connect, Google Hangouts, are 3 tools that could cover that meeting at a fraction of the cost (both money and time) to a business. Time travelling doesn't need to be wasted time.

    In the mood to play minecraft with a group of people just to completely separate myself by traveling 5,000 blocks away and building a lavish home, carved into the mountain of an amplified surface ravine, laughing over terrible quality Skype calls. Nostalgic.

    @discordapp your a piece of trash. I can't express how much discord is shittier than skype and even whatsapp. If you don't understand why people are getting their accounts disabled then shut it down, just ******* shut it down forever.

    mentioned me in a video she mispronounced my name (she did that for a while, I never had the heart to correct her) and I was still over the moon. When they agreed to Skype with me, and went through with it, I was happy. When I met them I was happy. After that things cooled down-

    @SkypeSupport I appreciate the response -- but the only program with connection problems that I can remember is Skype. I use a wired connection. The Skype status page showed no outages when other sites were showing Skype problems. Skype forces updates now - so of course it is current.

  • jackf723 Jack Swagger (@jackf723) reported

    @serrebi On High Sierra, voiceover has quite a lot of problems with the Electron Skype. It got better since MS added back some of the old keyboard shortcuts, though I am of course noticing audio quality degradation due to the fact web-audio's being used.

    1. 10x Windows hate meetings. They think it is a waste of time and tries their best to help you by crashing Skype for business 1 minute before start just because some manager has called a "Staff Meeting" to discuss the weather.

    I've been a Linux user since the 1990s. When forced to deal with Word documents, I've used LibreOffice or Google Docs. TIL I can use Word in my browser for free, using my Skype login. And it's collaborative like Google Docs. Truly not Steve Ballmer's Microsoft any more.
