It seems Skype has been stumbling a little lately, with reports that the messaging app has been giving users repeated connection issues. Microsoft is on the ball, though, having reassured users that a fix is in the works and will be arriving soon.

Some users seem to have experienced these connectivity issues across a number of days, detailing the inability to send messages across any version of the service, including its desktop, iPhone and Android applications. Strangely, however, calls seem to work just fine for some where the messaging is failing.


Microsoft really has to get Skype together if they are going to compete with Hangouts, Snapchat, Facebook and others.
