Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

1 ★From 2 weeks I am facing problem with skype group video call.I enable my video on group call but no one found my video also app become freeze only I can listen the voice of members.please skype resolve this issue asap.
1 ★This app sucks. I use this app for online learning and i couldn't see what my tutor is sharing. I can only see it for 3 minutes and then it blacked out. Even if i leave and rejoin the call, it is still not showing the shared screen. This happened too many times that i couldn't catch up with the class since I'm not understanding what the tutor is saying without seeing the screen. I had passed like 4 classes bcause of this problem. Check your apps. Too bad my tutor is using this app.
1 ★When i started to use skype that time it is ok but now i am too frustrated to use skype because My account was locked since last 5-6 days and try login too many times to get back my account but i don't know what is the problem in it, they didn't help me yet. Even after too many account review form i have fill they did not replayed me as i expected.
2 ★It is a good way of contacting friends, especially during corona, but it isn't always reliable. Most of the times when I get a call it doesn't notify me until I missed it and I get a missed call notification and when I do get a notification (usually the 2nd time a person calls me in a row), even when I hit accept it doesn't actually answer the call, it just brings me to the chat where it says I missed another call. My boyfriend and I have started using Google duo instead and no complaints yet.
1 ★Plagued with bugs in app and every year it gets worse. I might get only the call on the phone and not the desktop. Someone might drop it and if they call me again I get the sound but the application or notification doesn't appear, to take the call. I might get the sound of phone mode but through the speaker so you have to hold the phone like a banana. And don't even start me in desktop, my antivirus has even jumped at many of the ads that it opens by itself. WORST SOFTWARE EVER!
1 ★Very slow. The lookout on contacts takes ages and, I don't know how it's done, but it doesn't find a contact by name! But if you dial the phone number, then Skype shows it to you with the name... which is doubly irritating! And while you dial a number, Skype will keep trying to match the partial number with your contacts, and it takes AGES! Guys, have my contacts stored IN MY APPLICATION NOT IN YOUR SERVER BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK TIMELY! What the actual fudge are you doing there!
3 ★Just like with any recent Microsoft app: terrible UX design. Unusable by older and not-so-technically-savvy people (the flow is too stateful, icons are ambiguous, controls auto-hide and even the login/password fields are blended with the page and hard to find). The only virtue: it works on various devices and is free (read: paid with breaching your privacy).
1 ★dear team , it has been almost a month that skype hangs when making a call. as soon as the call is connected it feels like it freezes and I'm not able to mute/un-mute open mobile speaker to increase volume - open/close camera.. I'm not sure where the problem is...I uninstalled the app and pre-installed it but no use ... is it a bug from the new update? please fix this issue. kindly note that I asked my friends and they also face same issue ... but on pc we are not facing this problem .
1 ★Terribly slow on mobile. Skype is the only messaging app on my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 9) that messages take up to 30 seconds to load when there are more than 100 messages. Incredibly stupid and useless. You are far better of using Google hangouts or WhatsApp. The skype desktop app on Windows works fine but the mobile counterpart just can't keep up.
4 ★Skype seems like a good application on social network, but it has a problem, and that is that it does not let you send voice messages of more than 2 minutes, but anyway I highly recommend Skype, because it is free and I have had many good experiences with its servers.
1 ★This app is turning something else. With full internet connection dialing a number is becoming impossible...
1 ★Generally (about 4-6 weeks ago) I'd have rated Skype with 4 stars quite happily, but of late it doesn't work at all - no functionality and crashes constantly. Microsoft, unless this is a ploy to drop the service forever in a "screw you guys" sort of way, it'd go a long way to fix this ASAP or your never going to get the user numbers back, or perhaps this is the end game to help free up server space and cut costs 🤔 Sort it out or have the decency to tell us to jump ship forever please 😌Thanks
