New Skype not working on my Andriod Galaxy s9

I had Skype for 5 years and pay every month for worldwide telephone calls. I even have a dedicate Skype telephone number where people can call me.

'MS  upgraded Skype and now we cannot receive incoming phone calls on our Android. When a telephone call comes in there is no ring tone. We have tried so many settings but nothing works! We have the older version of Skype on the laptop and if a call comes in it rings on the laptop, so the issue is specific to the new version of Skype.

I know how to uninstall Skype from my Android but how do I get to install and roll back on my Android to the older version of Skype? 

One would think that the MS team will test and verify that everything is working on the new edition....same on you MS!!!!
