It’s Not Just You. Skype App Experiencing Problems

So we have been battling with Skype communication this morning particularly with calling.

What is Skype?

We checked our Internet connection and everything was working so we went to the Skype Support on Twitter and there was a problem.

The release reads:

Some of you may experience problems with Skype presence and may not see online. We have detected an issue with the status settings of Skype.

Affected users will not be able to change their status, their contacts will all show as offline and they will be unable to start Skype calls to them.

Instant messages are still being delivered as usual. The status issue also doesn’t affect Skype for Web, which can be used to make calls and send instant messages.

Still has us pulling the hair out… for those of us who have it.

Mind you apparently Skype Web is working just fine.

We will update when the service is working properly
