We can see that there are sudden problems with Skype down on April 18, 2017 and not connecting according to thousands of affected users.
Social media boards such as Twitter is going into meltdown right now with Skype users complaining that service is down with what looks to be a global Skype outage.
You can see an example of the live problems that are coming in by the second on Twitter above, while elsewhere users are searching for a Skype outage map to see if it is happening anywhere else too and not just them.
Something tells us though that this is a serious issue right now and we can only hope that service will be restored soon.
