Skype users from around the world are reporting connectivity problems.
The service said it was aware of incidents yesterday where users lost connectivity to the application and were unable to send or receive messages.
Some users were unable to see a black bar indicating a group call is ongoing, and experienced longer delays in adding users to their buddy list.
Early this morning, Skype confirmed that the problems were ongoing.
Down Detector has users from all over the world reporting an outage on the service. Outages have been reported in France, the UAE, Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Pakistan, Vietnam, South Africa, and many more countries.
