"Restricted hardware"

September 06, 2014  |  By chr1s8

 |  Version: Skype 6.20.32.104

Looks nice. Free.

Cons

Limited to newer processors.

"So far, not so great"

August 06, 2014  |  By Wood5440

 |  Version: Skype 6.18.32.105

Pros

Nothing better than the old version so far as I am concerned. I'm not a mobile phone user, so any improvements in that regard are going to miss me.

Cons

I use Skype in Windows 8, usually on the XP replica desktop. I teach students through the internet so I need to use Word, Firefox and Skype at the same time. Previously I could show all three windows simultaneously on my monitor and see my own camera output in a small inset window in a corner. I had no trouble switching from the XP to Metro tiles desktops. But no longer.......I must choose. I can get the Skype audio, Word and Firefox but no Skype video and no camera output monitor on the XP desktop, or I can get Skype audio and video and nothing else on the Windows 8 desktop. I have also yet to figure out how to pin a Skype shortcut to the XP desktop, or even how to launch Skype from that desktop.
At this point, I am not a happy camper.

"Yup, won't install here either."

May 29, 2014  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: Skype 6.16.32.105

Pros

None, Skype has gotten so useless lately.

Cons

Setup program wouldn't install Skype.

Summary

Skype v6.16.10? started freezing, stealing memory and crashing my computer so I had to uninstall it. Now I try to download the latest version and the setup program here doesn't work. It just gets to the point of saying "installing" but the progress bar never advances.

"Yet another Skype update that won't install"

May 26, 2014  |  By LesWilkins

 |  Version: Skype 6.16.32.105

Pros

None - I can't use it.

Cons

Yet again this update will not install - it's disappointing that this keeps happening with Skype but with no other programs that I download. There are various suggestions online to rectify this, but it shouldn't be necessary and I can't be bothered.

Summary

I don't use it much, so I'll stick with the previous version, and hope the next update installs correctly.

"New Skype Windows Desktop... EXTREMELY SLOW ..."

May 14, 2014  |  By melen001

 |  Version: Skype 6.14.32.104

Pros

It's been the "default" VOIP for Windows for ever and does perform well. Easy to use and import Facebook, Yahoo, Outlook (Hotmail) contacts. It's a free service...

Cons

New version Windows esktop is very slow to load and close....

Summary

Updated Skype to Windows Desktop version 6.16.0.105 and what a slow-poke
this is.... it takes for ever to load and close. What have they done to
Skype??? The previous version 6.14.104 was doing just fine, fast
loading and closing and not even a hiccup what so ever. They really
messed up this time. They should have left it alone. This new so called
Desktop Version is probably written to enhance it's operation with
Windows 8 even though it's for windows 7 also. They forgot the Wins 7
crowd which are more than Wins 8 and just refined Skype for Wins 8. If I could get back the old Version
6.14.104 I would get rid of this Desktop Version. Don't like it at all. It's just to SLOW...
HEY SKYPE WHAT HAVE YOU DONE ????
