Skype Android bug fixed by Microsoft which automatically responds to calls

Skype Android bug

A bug that makes a phone answer automatically is now meant to be functionality in the Skype app. Some of the owners of Android phones complain of a bug with the Skype app from Microsoft that answers incoming calling automatically.

The recent Apple Group FaceTime fiasco could be a serious issue in terms of data protection. Android Police reports users began to complain on Microsoft’s replies forum in January regarding the Skype bug.

The Skype app on Android has an option named “Automatically receive incoming calls,” which Microsoft considers an accessibility feature, but it is also used as a means to remotely check animals and the house when you’re away.

However, users have found, according to the first complainant, that even if the feature is deactivated, calls will not stop being automatically answered. “My Skype answers calling on my phone automatically after a few seconds.

It’s even when my phone’s in my pockets,” wrote the first user to report the problem. Many other users also report calls when their Android smartphone is coupled with an intelligent clock.

A support agent from Microsoft started asking the forum questions on the day it posted a complaint and said that the remedy is on the way.

The reporting bug observed that the Skype app stopped answering automatically, if its smart watch is turned off or Bluetooth is disabled. All those who reported the problem, however, did not have a smartwatch couple.

Microsoft updated the Skype Android app in late March, but the same auto-response problem was reported by one user in a Google-Play review.

The question recalls Apple’s latest FaceTime privacy mistake, which allowed callers to listen to a FaceTime recipient who did not actually reply.

In the Skype preview, Microsoft seems to have fixed the problem, so an update should be updated to address it in the Play Store soon.
