Complete Guide to Cancel and Delete Skype

There are a few things you must do and know before canceling subscriptions. They are:

  1. Check the Terms, Service policy or Privacy policy of Skype to know if they support self-serve subscription cancellation or account deletion:
  2. Once you subscribe to a plan and you don't cancel it manually like you subscribed, that plan will renew automatically because you gave the permission.
  3. When you subscribe for a trial period and then you cancel, you run the risk of losing that trial content altogether.
  4. You must remember to manually cancel a subscription 24 hours before the trial period ends.

    Reliable over the yearssss

    I have been on Skype since 2002. For sixteen years, this has been my favorite app as it has kept up with the improvements in technology. Over the past years, I have been on international trips and Skype has kept me connected to my family and relatives in 3 different countries. The quality of calls has improved a lot over the years, too - sparing me from huge amounts of phone bills. However, I believe that the key is to have a decent internet connection. I am really impressed that is now being used widely both for personal and business communications. I have had lots of job interviews through call conferences. Love the emojis as they also keep up with the times, i.e., diversity. I can actually choose the color of the skin of the clapping hands or see different options on couples. I can go on for the many ways Skype has been an essential part of my life through the years - forever loyal to you! Thanks, Skype 👏🏼🙌🏼 🍾.

    11 years of experience

    I’ve been using Skype for more than 11 years now, through its ups and downs. Just finally installed the most recent version on my iPhone X, so haven’t used it for a few months now. This version is more stable, and higher quality than I’ve seen from Skype for a while. When we first started using it, talking back and forth between Japan and the United States in 2008, it was the only game in town and it was great to have! Over the years though, especially shortly after Microsoft took it over, it got really glitchy and frustrating to use. Now, using it for a half hour video call to Russia, I have basically no problems with it. Sound quality, video quality, ease-of-use, all basically very good. My one issue, and the reason I only give it four stars instead of five, is that the screen sharing isn’t working as expected. Looks like the functionality should be there, but simply hitting the share screen button took me to a dialog box which asked about which app I would like to record. Record? I tried that, but all I did was, well, record. Looks like maybe there’s just some sort of disconnect, perhaps easy to fix, in the software. Overall, very nice to see that Skype is once again a viable option!

    Works Well With 50-mps Wifi

    1) My experience with Skype over the last six years has been very good on both my laptop and my iPhone. I mostly use Skype for calling telephone numbers. Indeed, I have listened to lectures by dialing a phone number and experiencing excellent connections for hours at time. 2) With this app on my iPhone, the volume and clarity are particularly good with 50-mps wifi on my end. 3) Some other times, the volume of the other person has been a bit low, but I was still able to understand what the other person was saying. 4) The only funky thing that I have found with the app was when I wanted to add a secondary email address to my account. I read help first, but it seemed to be out of date since the navigation information in the help text didn’t correspond very well with the app. Eventually, I deduced that I couldn’t use the app to update my email addresses. I had to chat with support and login in to the Skype website to make the modifications. Most apps allow you to change email addresses within the apps.

    Suggestions are annoying and crashes often

    I’ve used Skype for 2-3 years now and it wasn’t really that bad. I used it everyday to call and text my friends. But there’s a slight problem. There are always these suggestions I can use if I send a message or someone sends me a message. I press the button that these aren’t useful, but they keep coming back! I dislike the suggestions because I accidentally keep pressing it and it immediately sends and makes my friend confused. Also, whenever I call someone, it won’t even let me turn off my phone! It is so annoying because when I turn off my phone so save battery while calling, it immediately hangs up. Whenever I call on the computer and go on another tab at the same time (like playing a game), it affects my game. It freezes my game all the time. Also, my Skype just crashes when I call on the computer. It immediately closes the tab and hangs up. It gets me and my friend really irritated. I love this app but it just has a few problems that needs to be fixed

    Works well, some glitches

    I live in a rural area where my cell phone mostly does not work, and the small local phone company here has expensive rates for unlimited long distance — even if I call the next town over. I use Skype (I have a Skype phone number), ooma, or WhatsApp, to telecommute and call out of my limited area. Skype is better than ooma because the quality is usually good and I can reliably make outgoing calls or connect to meetings such as via zoom or gotomeeting. Sometimes my internet connection strength seems to fluctuate though, and my Skype calls break up or echo and distort. My biggest criticism is that people I call may see a long 01 number with no name and without my correct location in their caller ID. Sometimes they do see my correct information but mostly not. With the current deluge of robo calls, this means often recipients are cautious about answering my calls. Overall as a telecommuter, I am happy to have Skype ... without it, connecting for meetings and doing business would be a lot more difficult and expensive.
