    Robert Batey,
    On Android Tablet skype call comes in and icon to answer flashes and disappears. Only photo icon of caller appears. This is not useful. Calls are received but the App doesn't allow me to respond. I can send calls, though. Others are complaining of this. Android 7.11 on Lenovo Tab 4. I'm told older version worked. Hmmm. How about fixing this, Microsoft. My settings are set properly.
