There could be a few reasons why you might not be receiving notifications. Try these things:
Notifications will stop when you sign out. Make sure you’re connected to the internet and signed in.
Verify that notifications are still turned on.
Make sure you’re using the latest version of Skype.
On a mobile device? If you’re still not receiving notifications after verifying they’re turned on and making sure you’re using the latest version of Skype:
If you’re still not receiving notifications from specific contacts after verifying they’re turned on and making sure you’re using the latest version of Skype it means that the sender is using an outdated version. Ask them to update to the latest version of Skype.
If you close the Skype app without signing out first, you might still receive notifications. If you want to stop these notifications, you can either disable them from your Settings or sign out before you close the app.
