I have been quite happy with Skype's performance on Windows Phone 8 except for one issue. When I place a call and the recipient picks up, it will automatically put the call on speaker, and there doesn't seem to be a button on the UI to change it to the earpiece, unless it's hidden somewhere.
It makes it a bit awkward in public places. I have tried various combinations of devices
- Vodacom Lumia 1020 Lumia Black <-> Vodacom Lumia 1020 Lumia Amber
- MTN Lumia 925 Lumia Black <-> Vodacom Lumia 1020 Lumia Black
- Vodacom Lumia 1020 Lumia Amber <-> Windows 8.1 PC
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android 4.1.2 <-> Vodacom Lumia 1020 Lumia Amber
Is there a workaround which needs to be done to make the call use the earpiece? There are 5 WP8 phones in my house, making Skype quite useful and I don't want to have to stop using it.
