Skype for Android plauged with bugs over incoming calls issue

Skype for Android

If you are using Skype for Android app, you should be aware of a bug that will interfere with your work. According to sources, the Skype for Android app will automatically answer incoming calls because of the presence of the bug.

The analysts have predicted that the bug is serious in nature since incoming calls are automatically answered. The problem was initially reported on Microsoft’s support forums back in January but we don’t have any idea as to the reason for the error.

Even though Skype on Android has an option to answer calls automatically, the bug causes the phone to answer calls even if the handset is turned off. You can locate the option on the Settings page. However, the problem was resolved for some users when they disconnected their smartwatches and fitness trackers from the relevant Android smartphone. The users took to the forum and revealed that clearing cache and reinstallation of the app doesn’t yield big results in a bid to find a solution to the problem.

If the remarks of a Skype Insider are to be believed, the recently released beta updates have already fixed Skype for Android app bug. We would suggest you download the latest updates and verify for the presence of the error. There are widespread reports of privacy issues, which automatically answer incoming calls.

Did you encountered automatically answer incoming calls error on Skype for Android? You should try to update the app from Google Play Store to make sure that you are working with the latest version of the app.
