You can't keep it open alongside your desktop so you an multitask, the graphics are horrible (seriously, they look like they're from the early 2000s), and you have to stare at annoying ads all the time.
I'm going to have to find a new way to talk to my friends if they don't make the app usable again.
I've tried uninstalling multiple times and it appears the windows update created and "old" file so I cannot uninstall Skype completely to reinstall a clean copy.
I loved using the Skype app before the new update, it was an awesome way to keep in touch with my friends! But, the "new and improved" update is the exact opposite of what it calls itself.
If I could give the "Get Skype" app less than one star, I certainly would. Contacts were easy to add, files were easy to share, saving where you liked were easy, and the calls were high quality.
Ability to use phone numbers with strings (dial conference, wait 5 seconds and enter code to join saved call in calendar). This app merely prompts you to download the Skype for Desktop app, which is terrible to use with a touchscreen or on a tablet.
This is a Microsoft product running on a Microsoft product, this "should" be flawless but it's not even passable...
Why does it seem like updates to Microsoft software either take away once working features or break stuff all together...

Video link with camera that works fine for other applications broken (does not even show video device available with no way to debug). And now the Skype for Desktop app comes complete with highly annoying and terribly intrusive ads.
