Skype has gone down all across the globe today, September 21.
Skype users have been complaining about not being able to sign in today. Skype has confirmed that users will not be able to modify their status and their contacts will appear offline.
“We’re a bit overloaded right now…Please try again later, or download Skype to use it anytime,” Skype informed its users 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.”
Fortunately, though, messaging is not affected.
Skype says that 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.”
