Social media websites were abuzz with messages from users from different parts of the world complaining error and breakdown of the Skype service.
“We’re a bit overloaded right now…Please try again later, or download Skype to use it anytime,” Skype wrote on its website.
“Affected users will not be able to change their status, their contacts will all show as offline and they will be unable to start Skype calls to them.” However, they added that instant messages “are still being delivered as usual. The status issue also doesn’t affect Skype for Web, which can be used to make calls and send instant messages.”
oh dear! #Skype has broken down and I have to make an international call!

#Skype down today. Just used Google Hangouts for an interview (recording on Audacity). Worked fine, if anyone needs alternative.
