Skype should be "always on" .
Like WhatsApp, when someone wants to call you, it should ring on your phone, and you can answer if you want. Currently you have to sign in first and then expect a call, nothing spontaneous about that - but the essence of good communications is spontaneity.
Come on Skype, your product is superior in every other way, by far!
When I load the software on me phone, default it to be ready at all times. Simple.
Hi Steven. Thanks for your feedback. You can change your settings so that when you close the application window by clicking X, Skype will keep running. This doesn’t sign you out, so you can still receive calls and instant messages while Skype runs in the background. To do this in Skype for Windows Desktop:
Select your profile picture.
Toggle On close, keep Skype running on.
In Skype for Windows 10 this option is ON by default. You can also choose if you want to show Skype in the system tray (Settings – General – Toggle Show Skype in the Windows notification area)
Let me know if it works for you :)
Thanks, Petr, I have updated my desktop Skype. Super happy!
I am more interested in the Andriod phone that I have. I am most often moving around so that is my most important point of contact.
Is there a way to do the "always on: on the android phone?
