Just a really quick post to offer a simple fix (in most cases) for the issue, still causing concern for many Android users of Skype.
The problem… Skype on your mobile will not recognise or sync with your account from your desktop or laptop so no contacts or conversations are found. All it says is to ‘Invite’ a contact.
Why has this happened?
It is basically due to an incompatibility issue on the often pre-installed app.
There is a simple fix for this which works in most cases and goes as follows:
1. Go to your phone settings.
2. Go to your Apps list and locate Skype.
3. Tap clear cache and data. If this option is not available, click on uninstal updates.
4. Reboot your device.
5. Reinstall Skype.
6. Sign in.
Once you launch the new Skype app you may be asked to sync your Android phone contacts to Skype or you might find it has already been done.
