Microsoft boasted it had rebuilt Skype 'from the ground up'. Instead, it should have buried it

SOLUTION??

Few months back, skype wasnt staying alive on my android phone(s) Eventually found out it didnt have the "Show skype as an ongoing notification" setting. So I installed an older version, and Voila!!, Fixed.

Now its Forcing me to update. or Forced signout if I dont. Making it unusable without updating.

But I tried an even older apk version I had from 2015. I ticked "Dont Show Me This Again",(The Update) and then Continue!

And,... Voila!! Im back. Versions 5.9.0.14047 & 5.0.99.49715 both work. Im happy to send anyone the apk who wants it. (If Im allowed)
