Oh the frustration!
I stupidly updated the Skype app on my iPhone 6, and now I’m trapped in a half-baked, “I want to be like Snapchat” social media hellhole where I can’t do the basic productivity things I used to be able to do on Skype effortlessly.
Ability to see which of my contacts are active online? Gone.
Ability to change my status to “invisible” so that I don’t get pinged when I don’t want to but can still see who is out there? Gone.
Ability to set my status to “Do Not Disturb” when I am on a call and want to focus on it? Gone.
Do I want to share “highlights of my day” with my Skype contacts? No!
It’s a freakin’ productivity app.
What was Microsoft THINKING?
Make the pain go away, Skype.
I just want this to be over.
Maybe I’ll start using WhatsApp.
