Using 18.104.22.168 the keypad works in making the initial call but if I try to use the keypad after the call connects, for example a meeting id or an extension nothing happens. In 4.3 you could hear the tone from the keypress - in 5.3 nothing. It just does
not appear to work.
I hope that Skype will fix this soon! It is a disaster! An obvious defect with the new update, I suspect, as it used to work. Without the ability to use the keypad during a call Skype is useless for many purposes.
I think they fixed it -- I'm using 22.214.171.124 and it worked for me.
Unfortunately the update came in the middle of an important call with no warning. I really don't appreciate that they would break my call with no warning and then make me wait minutes for the update to install before I could resume my call. Besides that,
they didn't apparently notify anyone of the fix. Not very professional in my opinion.
A friend of mine said that Viber is a good alternative. Anybody here use it?
