Hello and welcome.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your Skype app.

Skype made a large update last week so it may have something to do with that. You cannot install an older version of the app but you can delete it and install the latest version. Have you tried that already?


Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No. I thought I had the latest version, but I will try to update to be sure. Thanks.

No. Not this time, thanks. I'm in the process of downloading Skype for Windows and my mini iPad.
