Same here. when will SKYPE acknowledge that there is an Issue.. For crying out loud not a single person I know in this country who has SKYPE on android can connect. But most users wont even take the time to go on to forums. FIX it lots of users Im sure will start going over to alternatives like Viber and Line,

Since last Tuesday a new update for Skype is available, version 4.7. You can download the latest update for Skype for Android in the Play Store


With Skype 4.7 for Android, we are introducing aggressive battery savings that will allow to leave Skype running without noticeably affecting battery life. 

This version also includes the following fixes:

  • Workaround for the KitKat bug which caused a runaway process when the camera was synced in the background.
  • Fix for audio and video calling on tablets that do not have Bluetooth.
  • Now lists your Windows Live Messenger contacts in the Skype (default) view, not just the All contacts view.

Could you please verify if this version solves the issue you are encountering? Please share your feedback.

Can anyone confirm if this fixes the vpn issue, as I'm not in a Skype blocked country right now.
