If you are reliant on Microsoft’s Skype app for making calls or video conference, you are not alone. It is reported that SKYPE system is down worldwide. Although you can’t make calls from the mobile apps, it seems like sending message seemed to work.

“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.”

So, how is it affecting you. Do you use WhatsApp or others as a backup communication software ?
