    The newest Skype is giving me severe issues and Is unusable. I need to be able to use Skype on my BlackBerry Silver Edition.

    Does anyone know if this is possible? I don't want to install any apk from snap. Although it is an android port, i'd like to install the Skype given to us thru BlackBerry world, just not the newest.

    Current version:

    Desired version:

    Thanks for the help!

    I manually got the android apk at the same version as the older one I listed. So far zero issues. Also has proper hub integration. Is this apk identical to that found in BlackBerry world?

    If you have backup with older skype version, just uninstall available skype and restore (only skype) from backup. I did that and everything fine.

    The version of Skype on BBW is just an Android port, so is identical in every way to the apk of the same version, only it's been converted to a bar file. You should be able to get the apk through an online apk store. The up to date version however, works quite well if you patch it first to remove Google Play Services dependency.

    Do the messages show up in the hub with the latest android version patched to remove google services requests?

    Go to apkmirror.com. Search for Skype. The version you want is on page 3.
