It looks like Skype is having an issues with chats and messages, it appears that voice calls are wokring fine on Skype but messages atre not going through.
The problem seems to have started around 11 am and we have had a number of reports of the issue from readers.
Both myself and Julian have tested this out and messages are not going through or are taking a really long time to go through on either the desktop or mobile versions of Skype.
It is not clear what the issue is and Skype are not showing this as an issue on their Skype Status page, hopefully it will be resolved shortly. If you have had this problem, leave a comment below and let us know.
Updated: It looks like the issue has now been resolved.
