HTC 8X Skype App Issue

Hi,

 

I updated by HTC 8X to the latest software update released by Microsoft yesterday 'Portico' and since then the Skype app is behaving strangely, on voice calls (whether to skype or on phones) the other party is unable to hear me whereas I can perfectly hear them. My phone is working fine and I can make and receive calls with no voice issues whatsoever. Skype app on my Lumia 920 works fine and so it does on my iPad.

 

anyone else facing this issue? How do I resolve this? Please help.

The Portico update (to 8.0.10211.xxx) is the operating system update, which doesn't actually fix the HTC issue. The HTC issue is fixed in a firmware update (also delivered OTA), which takes your firmware version number to 1532.20.20008.xxx.

I have the same issue on my HTC 8X with Skype since updating today. Video calls works fine but with voice calls, the other party can't hear me at all.

Re: HTC 8X Skype App Issue

Our current understanding is that this issue only affects the earpiece, so you should be able to successfully hold an audio call by using the speaker or a headset. Please let me know if this is not the case (and your Firmware revision as requested previously).

 

Thanks.
