Apparently some people are successfully using Skype. For me, this is not working unfortunately. Incoming calls pop up a new window briefly, which immediately closes again. I've tried installing it from both Yandex Store and Google Play. This is what is shown in the logs:

Don't know if this helps here: I was successfully using android skype for a video call today. But I was starting the call from my phone. Maybe it's just incoming calls that don't work (I have not tried this ...)

Apparently, this was a problem with the particular version of Skype which was available at the time. Everything works now after updating to the currently available version (apart from the Skype UI sometimes being unresponsive).

I have problem with the sound only comes from the loudspeaker at the bottom of the phone when using Skype (ever since I installed it the first time on 1.0.2.5). Whatever I do and no matter which version (tried downloaded both from Yandex and Play Store, and update) I use, it's the same. So I have to use earphone if I don't want the whole room to hear. So if you know how I can fix it I'd appreciate it.

I am experiencing really heavy problems with skype: I am unable to call someone, well it is showing that its initiating the call but the person does NOT get any notification, then the ui is hanging up itself and i am unable to do anything and if i will swype skype away to the multitasking screen and open it up again it will close itself immidiatelly. It is also closing itself if it is minimized on the multitasking screen and i lock the phone after some time. This are really annoying issues and skype is quiet unusavle in this state.

I am unable to call someone, I don't know if the problem is related to last jolla update (1.0.5.10) or last skype update (4.7.429.43539)

The problem is related to the last skype client, with the 4.5.0.39600 the call and video call work fine skype_4.5,
with last jolla update (1.0.5.10) the front camera is upside down but only on the caller screen.
