Skype is down for many users worldwide.

Popular communications application Skype went down across the world today due to ‘an issue with the status settings,’ according to the company.

The company went on to state that affected users will not be able to change their status, their contacts will all show as offline and they will be unable to start Skype calls to them.

On the company’s Heartbeat service, which updates the status of Skype connectivity, the company said, “We’re working on a fix for this issue and hope to have an update for you soon. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused while we get this resolved.”
