Android Device Expert: Richard, Android Specialist replied 2 years ago

Thanks

Can you go to Settings, Applications Manager on the phone.

Go to Skype, press on it and press uninstall.

Then hold the power button until the menu shows, and choose Restart.

Once done, go to the Google Play Store and download the Skype app again.

Tell me if it then functions please.

Let me know the results
