After installing the new version (5.8.0. 1027) of Skype on my Mac, I can no longer read the text of sent/received instant messages. What shall I do to fix this problem?

I even tried to log in my account on another computer, but with no positive result.

Please send me an email on [removed for privacy]

Thank you in advance!

I can send and received voice messages but not typed messages. I am on a PC and the person I send to is on a Mac. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Who answers these questions? Is there anyone from Skype to answer these questions?
