Re: Skype suddenly being really Laggy...

The issue is still there ... removing the tick on the Microsoft targeted ads didn't help.

 

i am still using a rollback version - 6.9 (and works fine) so i can do my work and waiting for the issue to get fix. I will check again in January 2014 how an updated skype will behave with my Windows 8. 

 

For now happy holidays :happy:

Didn't update anything recently. 

 I downloaded Sykpe 6.1.0.129 version and worked for me!

Re: Skype suddenly being really Laggy...

Just found this thread.

 

And yes I'm using Windows 8 on gaming laptop (it's a beast) so I know the issue is not on my end. Once again unnecesarry updates brought to us by Skype messing the quality.

 

Really stupid, really annoying. I just started having this issue today. It's beyong ridiculous. Here is 1 word of advice to whoever keeps updating this product and "improving" it (not). If it's not broke, DON'T FIX IT.

 

Now, if someone could guide/link me on how to get the older version of skype (6.9?) that they're using without a problem. I would very much appreciate it. 

 

Thanks.

Oh thank God!

At least I'm not the only one having this weird issue.

I came across the issue about half an hour ago when I signed into Skype.
The little ring that pops up when your internet is acting up was popping up every five minutes or so and every time I sent a message it would have the other little ring next to it. 

Skype was also being extremely slow and unresponsive. 

Clearly I am not having internet problems. 

 

I have tried everything to resolve this issue that I can think of; restarting, uninstalling all of that regular, normal, easy fixes, but none have proved to be a success. 

 

There was a windows update three days ago I believe, but I have had no issue since today. 

 

Additional information:

I use a Lenovo IdeaPad Z585 Laptop (64bit) which has Windows 8.

Re: Skype suddenly being really Laggy...

Any alternatives to Skype? I'm ready to switch today.

This is not the only issue I've had with Skype. Anyone else seen how terrible the Android version has become?

Worked for me. 

I suggest uninstalling and installing this version until the issue can be fixed.
