Issue#489: Skype - Synronizing between Windows 10 and Android

  • Messages from desktop computer with Windows 10 to device with Android are not sent if it is minimized.


    Steps to reproduce:


    1. Run Skype on Windows 10 and on Android from different users.

    2. Minimize Skype on Android (for example, pressing button 'Home')
    3. Send message from Windows 10 to Android user.



    Message will not be sent and Android user will go offline. Messages will be received by Android user only if he will open Skype application, but push-messages will not come.


    Also the problem appears only in this OS combinations - between others all is OK (for example, from Windows 8.1 to Anrdroid).


    Also often there is a problem, when messages sent from Windows 10 are not syncronizing, when this user will login from device with another OS, for example, Android or Linux.

  • Issue#302770: Skype - Open Skype on iOS, Android and Windows Phone when clicking on link in browser

    Hi all, I was wondering if someone here might be able to help me out with an issue I am currently facing. I have built a website and included Skype/For Business links on the page and they work as intended on desktop browsers using im:<sip:emailAddress> but when using the site on a mobile device, clicking on the skype button does nothing. Is there another URI that I need to use on mobile devices in order to get Skype to launch on mobile? If not, does this mean that currently there isn't a way to launch Skype from a browser on mobile?

  • Issue#622729: Skype - Windows phone vs android and Iphone

    I see my friends who have Android and Iphones making video calls to anyone that they choose whether the person they are calling is on Skype or not and without Skype even on their phone. As a loyal Windows phone user I am trying to find this option on my Windows phone. My old Lumia 1020 had the video call button but there is not one on my Lumia 640.  My friend just taps a contact and then taps video call and he is connected at no no charge. It is so easy and seamless. I am not able to find the video call button on my Windows phone and I hope this feature is not disabled as it would be a deal breaker and a very bad omen for the future of Windows phones as video calls become more and more popular. I will not pay for a feature that my friends get for free just because i am loyal to Microsoft and their line of Lumia phones. Please advise.

  • Issue#923178: Skype - Can no longer share photos between Windows and Android versions of Skype

    Until recent;ly, I could drag a photo onto a conversation in the Windows version of Skype and another user (eg my wife using Skype on her Android phone) could see the picture. And the same worked the other way round. But that functionality seems to be broken in recent versions of Skype. I'm using V7.25.0.106 on Windows 7 and V7.06.0.643 on Android, and I imagine that my wife's Skype on Andoid is the same version.If I drag a photo onto the conversation on Windows, I see a blue downward-facing arrow in a white circle on the Android version of Skype (this is for both Windows and Skype logged in as the *same* user - maybe it's different for the other user in the conversation). The icon gives the file name and size of the original photo on the Windows PC, but when I click on the icon it remains indefinitely at the rotating-circles symbol "waiting".A photo that is attached to the message in the Android version of Skype is correctly displayed in another Android device (eg logged in

  • Issue#1046345: Skype - Offline contacts appear as Away on Windows PC and Android app

    Well the title says it all. Some of my contacts, not all of them, appear away even though they are offline, it happens on both my Windows PC and Android phone which is LG G2 (Android 5.0.2). Both Skype apps are updated to the latest version. I suspect there is something wrong with my account rather than with Skype application. This started happening about ~2 months ago I can't really remember so it's pretty recent. If there's any information you need just ask. Thanks in advance.

  • Issue#1171491: Skype - Skype issue after Windows 10 reinstall

    After the latest update, Skype is not showing any contacts, messages, home, etc. I use Windows 10 and this issue didn't showed up in the past. I deleted %appdata%, reinstalled (even earlier versions) and no fix atm. In a group call, after like 1 minute, the call drops. I changed my name in the curent state (from the login name to a different name) and after I restart Skype, it comes back to normal, as if there wasn't a change at all.  There are many other issues I have with Skype, so as a tl;dr I just can't use it, for anything at all. Any fix for this? Also, on Skype web, everything shows up, so the issue comes from the app. (I deleted some apps like Store, Skype preview, etc. because I don't use them and they gave me some Windows issues over the time, so I don't know if the Skype problem is from deleting those apps).

  • Issue#244: Android - Skype Now Hides Your IP Address by Default

    ​ When Skype first came out, it had one flaw that some folks might have had a problem with. While you were using it, Skype basically broadcast your IP address to anyone who wanted to take a few extra steps to find it. Some time after Microsoft purchased it and added it to their repertoire of software services, they added in the ability to hide your IP; however, it wasn't activated by default. That has...

  • Issue#1822: Skype - Skype keeps crashing when shutting down Windows 10

    Every time I try to shut down windows 10 an error message appears telling something about wrong memory addresses etc. The forum is full of such complains, so it must be a relatively common issue, however I don't have an asus sound card, but a creative sound blaster z.

Also tried to uncheck I sign out sound - no difference. Please help!

  • Issue#5125: Skype - Skype 7.18 constantly freezing on Windows 7

    Skype automatically updated to version 7.18 on my PC (although I had automatic updates disabled). However any version after 7.4 does not work properly on this machine, it constantly freezes to the point that it is impossible to have a written conversation with anyone as it goes into "not responding" every second time I click onto the Skype application. I was able to postpone this issue by using an older version (7.4 I think, or older than that), but since last week I tried many times do download an older version and automatically got the 7.18 instead. Is there a way to install again an old version?
