This is on a Moto E running Android 4.4.4. Skype doesn't seem to receive calls or messages unless the app is open. If the app is not open, then no notification happens.

  • Are you using a battery saver app, such as Greenify?

    This has been an issue with Skype for Android for about as long as I can remember, honestly. Their forums have quite a lot of posts related to it. This question has an answer that basically attempts to bring Skype back to the foreground constantly, but I can't vouch for its effectiveness. I personally gave up because I could never get Skype to behave properly. Commented May 5, 2016 at 16:35
  • Weird. Skype on my android seems to be always running as a service and logged in. When I get the occassional message, I'm always surprised when it shows up on my desktop (which I intentionally log in) and my phone (which I always forget is connecting)
