Yesterday, January 13th, users worldwide were reporting issues with the popular video chat platform. Users were automatically signed out and when attempting to log back onto their accounts they all received the same message: “We’re unable to complete your request”.
Microsoft acknowledged the issues and began working on restoring access. “We’re aware that the app is down, and our engineers are working on a fix. Apologies for any inconvenience. There’s no estimated time of repair, but it has been set as priority,” Microsoft said. Fortunately, the issue was resolved quickly and Skype is back up and running.
