Skype is a popular cross-platform for chat, voice calling and video calling service. All the affected users are unable to change their online status, their contacts are also shown as offline and they are unable to start a Skype call. But the instant messaging service is not affected by this outage. Skype Web service also seems unaffected. So, if you want to make calls and send instant messages, you can do that using the Skype Web service. People are talking about the issue on social media since morning. Here are some tweets from the users facing the Skype trouble.
Amazon outage, skype outage. Yep, running your whole business in the cloud is soo much better
