Skype Web app when can’t connect during outage

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 21, 2015

The Skype Web app is ideal when you are having problems and can’t connect due to an outage, especially when Skype is down on Android, iPhone, and all apps only. This is exactly what has taken place on September 21st, as you might have seen during our breaking news article and Product Reviews being the first website to report the Skype outage today.

We have not only seen our readers ask is Skype down today, report countries where the outage is evident, but also ask when will Skype be back up? Those in the United States might only just be waking up on Monday morning, as such they will be in the category of asking about the latest Skype status and wondering why it’s down.

There’s a simple solution that thousands have been using while they can’t login with the Skype app. This is to use the web app found at, as we have successfully been able to do ourselves in the UK. This quick fix might not work for everyone, so give it a try and let us know if you were able to login through the Skype web app during the current outage.


Is Skype not connecting for you and still down? If so, did you try the web app without any problems during login? It will be interesting to see if this solution works for all countries, so leave your location and browser type below. We will update this and the previous article when we receive an update on the current network status.
