    is there a particular reason why the site doesnt seem to archive Android versions anymore? The latest available here is 7.11 while the latest release is 7.43.

      Hi! Sorry for this, but the only reason is that I do not have time to publish them. I hope that I will find the time to do this and keep all versions up-to-date.

      Hi! I can be wrong, but either your device is no longer supported or you have a ARMv6 processor. To say for sure, I need more technical details about your device and if possible, please make a screenshot of the error.

    Hi, I installed your 7.11. version on my Huawei, using Android 6.0.1. I was looking for an older version for a while, because the latest skype version is incompatible (messages appear sent but the contacts don't receive anything, no sync for contact list, doesn't recognize my account altogether). Your skype version is unable to connect to skype. Could you please tell me how to fix it? The firewall is disabled, the AVG as well.

    During the video call, once I go to chat window for typing messages, if I come back to video, the other side video not coming up at all.

    The version used is Android on Samsung Galaxy Pro C9, Android 7.1.

    Any suggestions?

      Hello Vikram! Unfortunately, I cannot test this version right now. But if this issue occurs with all your contacts, most likely this is a bug, and you need to report it via Skype → Help and feedback → Report a problem.

    Mr X (karma: +10),
    Apologies if this is a bit redundant to write on this post as well as another asking same thing but been trying to understand the confusing version numbers and compatability inconsistency. I have Android 5.0.1 and Play Store is displaying Skype as the latest version for me to download which was only released back on March 20th 2019. Anyone know if Skype made a special version of Skype for this version of Android or is this some error? Have they made an announcement they are going to soon stop support for Android 5.0.1?

      A little update. I still have no clue. I had talked to Skype support and the person i talked to sounded like they didn't know what they were talking about and implied it was just a bug on my end. Since when do bugs have their own unique version numbers and release dates? Any answers on what's up with this Skype version number? I had updated to the and it has a feature missing, an away status display (just shows people offline). Which I am not 100% sure but seems to effect my ability to call when someone is away. This is annoying. Would be nice to know if this really is a version released at the end of March and another version for my version of Android will roll out or if it's Play Store not displaying a proper update.

      [Updated ]
      Okay I just got off talking to support again for over an hour for just the one simple question. Apparently is a patch release I was told. The person i spoke to was a bit confusing and maybe didn't have all the info but they said for my Android 5.0.1 I am stuck at this skype version number unless I root my phone and update the OS. Lol Skype is managed terribly.

    Hello, what can I do to install the classic version again? Anything I do not allow login. Please help me with the old version.

    [Updated ]
    Hello, Unfortunately for some time, I do anything. I can not go to the old and classic version. Apparently this is an outdated version of my work with Skype. It's just that the old version does not work. I do not like the new version at all. Please help me with this limitation. Fix it if you can design an old version

      Have looked into Skype Lite for Android to see if you like it any better? It leaves out some of the bloated features of Skype 8 for Android and optimizes for low performing devices and unstable internet connections.

    Why Skype does not release Persian version for our use of Iranians

      Hello Reza! Unfortunately, Microsoft has disabled Skype 7 and users cannot use it anymore on any operating systems. To continue using Skype you should update it to Skype 8 or use Skype for Web.

    Older versions of Skype will no longer run on my wife's Asus Slider SL101, Android 4.0.3.
    Is this planned obsolescence?
