Re: nexus 4 android 4.3 skype 4 crash

Yes the problem persist... this is unbelievable... ok I understand they needed some time to fix it but after all this time and this update is everything the same... I imagine the people that really pay for the service... I am so tired of this... if there was any really alternative to skype I would never use this again... this a forum on skype support and there is nobody reading our posts...

I know...I have already contacted the Custom Service 5 times...And the first 3-4 times, they didn't understand my problem...And they thought it was a problem with the device itself...Now the 5 time they finally made a ticket in the higher departement to fix this issue...(but this is already 3-4 days ago).

Re: nexus 4 android 4.3 skype 4 crash

Thank you for your efforts sep0r. The question is that we (users of 4.3) are a minory, and they are so busy trying to make skype functional since microsoft toutched it that they just don't care about a minory complaining about this... and this is what makes me even more angry, they just don't care... I know it is free and everything but they killed msn for skype and then destroyed it...

Re: nexus 4 android 4.3 skype 4 crash

Skype has never shined for great customer service. When there was an issue with Brazil's company that provided POST numbers they left people without their skype in number for months and then activated a new number, losing the old one. without any reimbursement or anything.

however, narrowing it down to this particular issue with android, i asked several times why you couldn't control anymore speakerphone vs earpiece in skype video call (as a workaround you can deactivate video on both parties and the speakerphone control will appear) - the app is crippled. maybe they want it to be crippled? that's the point. when you start thinking that they just don't care.

and you cannot even say 'well, it's free, don't complain' because we all paid for our android phones (and we receive their ads in several applications) and I also pay a skype subscription with another user account for a brazilian number.... so... 

yesterday i downgraded to 4.2.2 which is the original android that came with my nexus4 and things are really great now. the only thing I miss is the timer for the camera but that can be achieved through a 3rd party app and it's not like you can put your nexus4 somewhere to take a picture since it wil fall down and break :tongue:

if you want to downgrade to 4.2.2: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1995688

Re: nexus 4 android 4.3 skype 4 crash

I think Google should be taking the majority of the blame for this, the 4.3 update has caused a whole range of problems on Nexus phones. A well-written OS should never crash due to a malfunctioning application, especially when that OS in running on that manufacturers own hardware! I pay a Skype subscription, and I'm annoyed that I can't use it, but if the OS has a bug (which it definitely does have) I doubt there is much the app developer can do about it. HOWEVER I want to see a post from Microsoft/Skype explaining that they're at least looking into this problem!!! After all, I pay for it!!

Re: nexus 4 android 4.3 skype 4 crash

Maybe it's a way google found to make you use hangout instead of skype on the mobile phone...
And it's working :happy:  Making video calls on hangout and it works fine.

Posting just to show solidarity with the other users. My Skype app causes a reboot of the Nexus 4 phone on Android 4.3 EVERYTIME.

This happens to me too on my Nexus 4. Very frustrating. Will look for alternatives.
