"Skype "


What do you like about Skype?

I absolutely love how Skype makes it possible to work remotely in a post Covid-19 world. Without our daily, weekly,monthly meetings I know we wouldn't be able to continue working remotely and without that I'm not sure where our company would be. Thanks to Skype we don't have to find out. Were able to maintain our remote work with our meetings.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Some aspects of Skype you do have to pay for. None of the added paid features are very expensive. Plus it's well worth it if you consider that n ok work would most likely be getting done without Skype's help. They make it possible for our company to thrive during this global pandemic.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Skype has been instrumental in doing remote work. While the global pandemic has been ongoing many have been forced to work remotely. Without Skype I'm not sure how we would manage that. Well I am sure, we wouldnt. Thanks to Skype many businesses have been able to continue work while the world is in an uproar.

Skype has been one of the most efficient tools of communication. When others were finding their way to enter the market, Skype did that already so connecting anywhere in a convenient way is the thing I like most about Skype.

"One of the best software for virtual communication in my company"

The options are well located and I can identify them easily, it definitely gives me one of the best services for virtual communication with the other employees of the company.

In addition to that, its integration options with other programs make it a very convenient software for those of us who use different programs for communication, since in this way we can link the different softwares as if they were one. Definitely Skype is one of the best software for virtual communication and I recommend it to any company that requires this type of service.

What do you dislike about Skype?

I cannot add special permissions to users and that has brought me some complications since they do and write inappropriate things in the meeting room, I would suggest that they improve that and add some option to give/remove special permissions to users and avoid those complications.

I have been using Skype mainly for virtual meetings since it is a software that allowed me to cover and expedite that need to communicate with different departments and specify the corresponding assignments.

Mainly its ease of use and professional user interface that makes it the best platform to collaborate with clients in a corporate setting. The features such as recording meetings also enhance the user experience.

"video calls and fun"


What do you like about Skype?

The software is cross platform. This means that we can link Skype with computers or notebooks, smartphones, tablets, home landlines, Smart TV and for the Xbox One.
Skype supports several operating systems. For computers, it is possible to install it on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, Mac OS X and Linux. For mobile phones, on Windows Phone, Symbian OS, Android, BlackBerry 10 and iOS. Finally, for the consoles, as it was said before on the Xbox One but also on the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation Portable.
One advantage is that communication between two users with Skype is free, allowing chat, voice calls and videoconferences.
The software download is also completely free.
Skype is available in many languages ​​too. It is a multilingual software.
The software is highly secure, since the free version encrypts voice, files and text messages with a 256-bit resolution AES algorithm.
It is very easy to find familiar users on Skype, because they can be searched by name, by user or by phone number.
Skype is easy and quick to install.
Free phone calls to other Skype users anywhere in the world.
It works with all firewalls, NAT and router. Nothing to reconfigure.
Skype calls have high sound quality and are highly secure
Although Skype does not replace residential telephone service and cannot be used to locate you if you call an emergency service line such as 911, you can use Skype as an alternative telephone number. A Skype to Phone service plan offers different amounts of minutes and countries of destination for a variable monthly service charge. For example, unlimited calls to mobile and landlines in the United States cost less than the same plan for all of North America, which in itself is half the cost of the plan for unlimited calls to mobile phones in eight countries and landlines in another 55 countries.
As an alternative, the purchase of Skype Credit allows calls to landlines and mobiles worldwide. Prices differ by country; You can call for as many minutes as your credit balance allows in relation to the cost of the country you are calling
A software download is also completely free.
Skype is available in many languages ​​too. It is a multilingual software.
The software is highly secure, since the free version encrypts voice, files and text messages with a 256-bit resolution AES algorithm.
It is very easy to find known users on Skype, because they can be searched by name, by user or by phone number.

What do you dislike about Skype?

For most services it is necessary to pay. Among the utilities that must be paid are: video call communication between several users at once (group), the incorporation of a telephone number, with an annual or monthly contract, and obviously with this we can send data to a fax, talk with any mobile or landline, send text messages, leave an answering machine, among other services. It will obviously be paid according to the amount of data we use.
It is necessary to have a correct Internet connection. From a tablet or smartphone, we may have problems if we are not connected to a Wi-Fi network.
There are usually problems related to the quality of the microphone and also the resolution of the webcam to make a quality video call.
It can greatly slow down the platform in question being used. It usually happens a lot with computers, which take up a lot of RAM
Have unwanted contacts.
To call landlines you have to pay.
Voicemail is also not free.
Get a virus by downloading it by not getting it from the appropriate page.
Sometimes the bad resolution of the sound and video occurs

This is a very common problem, that sometimes on the video-calling it glitches without any explanation, even when you WI-FI signal it's good, we have to call the experts to solve it, other thing that i don't like it's that if you miss a message for example in you phone you can't read it again, in fact you can't recover it, or sometimes you can't delete some private conversations, it's weird, but int he PC version that doesn't happen, and of course the technical issues that happens very often on the audio-calling, you can't hear anything when that happens.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Without a doubt, this is an excellent form of communication, you can talk to anybody from around the world in many ways, chat, audio and video calls, i honestly was very surprised with the last 2 options, it helped me to solve some problems on the marketing area, because i contacted with experts to get some advice and this people are the best on the area, it helped me to know more about bussiness.

"The best software to communicate!"


What do you like about Skype?

I love using Skype because it is a very advanced and easy-to-use software that offers the best features for the user. Using Skype is a good experience since it has many communication functions. You can make high quality video calls without any problem, and your chat is very interactive because it contains stickers, gifs, video and photos can be attached. Skype is an excellent means of communication since it has the best system and has a fairly stable platform. With Skype I can live a quite acceptable experience and its price is accessible to users. No doubt Skype is an excellent option and I recommend it.

What do you dislike about Skype?

What I dislike about Skype is that it is a somewhat heavy product that consumes many internet and device resources when using it. Being honest in some video calls I have presented connection problems but many factors are involved in this, such as the distance between people and their connection quality. Skype offers a somewhat expensive service plan since to use some of its functions it is necessary to have Skype premium which is a slightly high membership and not many users decide to pay it. Except for all this Skype is a very well designed platform that has worked very well for my work and everyday use.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Thanks to Skype, my work is much more comfortable since I can communicate with my colleagues from anywhere in the world and from any device in the easiest and most effective way. Skype has helped me solve many problems since it offers me calls at no cost and has taken me out of trouble when I need to communicate with someone urgently. No doubt having Skype on hand is a very good choice since it is a very friendly and useful product. It is a very effective product when it comes to acting and in my experience it is worth hiring their services since they are of high quality and meets expectations !.

"Communication tool available to everyone"


What do you like about Skype?

Skype is free available 24/7 and because it is free it has allowed a positive impact on the logistics it requires in the company and in our business goals. This has allowed the realization of forums and meetings of great import without any cost, this makes Skype a very attractive tool. It also allows you to quickly see results and information for team members who are physically distant. Using the shared screen in real time is very useful when exchanging ideas and learning about agendas and results of the objectives set, that shared screen has the great advantages of using audiovisual information which is very nutritious at the time of exposing presentations and imagesI would say that the main advantages that I like about this communication technology tool could be focused as follows: Skype is easy and quick to install, the calls are totally free to other Skype consumers anywhere in the world, It works with all firewalls, NAT and router. Nothing to reconfigure, plus Skype calls have high sound quality and are very safe, Skype is running in the majority of computers: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Pocket Out.In the case of companies, we can summarize the reasons why we can or should use Skype:
Access from anywhere
Today the movement is essential to keep pace for good work. Skype for Business is a business communication tool available wherever there is Internet and cell phone access, which reduces the price of IT by supporting the workers who work from home and mobile workers. When productivity and communication tools are together, dealing with others is easier. And thanks to this compliance it is feasible to co-create and collaborate while using them to work every day such as Excel, Word, and Outlook.
With call monitor, working on the different plans and projects, it is very easy, then seek compliance with things without forgetting the name and face of who is talking. It shows the name of the speaker in your image or sequence of the different videos in a small window that squares above all without entering the path.Before joining a video call, it is always advisable to make sure your camera is ready. You will notice how you will shine, the lighting, as well as the surroundings before going live.
All users are able to call the work comrades on their VoIP network or organizational PBX, and they can also call any phone number inside or outside your company

What do you dislike about Skype?

I think that one of the main problems would be internet connection errors, a good internet is required to guarantee the transmission of Skype voice and data, because it is very likely to interrupt the house at low network speed. For example, video calls require a large bandwidth since it tends to be interrupted very often with poor Internet connectivity, this is very difficult, since when communication is interrupted, agendas are altered and this causes very uncomfortable moments for the need for information and communication you have at any given time Por que su ventajas se mantienen soo si hay una buena conexión de la contrario ya no es muy ventajasa como herramienta. Sin embargo en las versiones más nuevos de Skype, se han presentado inconvenientes con la retroalimentación de audio lenta o interrumpida, aun cuando se tiene Internet de alta velocidad

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Basically I have been using it to make, meetings and forums through video calls and conference videos, this has allowed me to achieve a fast and extensive communication with all the people involved in the different areas of my competition

"The perfect social network for my business and meetings"


What do you like about Skype?

I like how professional Skype is in my work. Any other social network can be for entertainment, but this platform is special. I love the sounds and animations when I make a video call and the tools I have available like mute microphone, hide video image, share screen, files and a nice chat. I can also customize my contact list. All options are easy to use and it's just a matter of trying them out.

What do you dislike about Skype?

What I've never liked is the noises other users make during a video conference. It would be ideal for Skype to automatically mute microphones that transmit different sounds. In addition, the platform can notify users about this.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

The truth is that I have had a good experience with Skype in the years that I have used it. All my work and conversations with clients go through this program.

I think one of the things I don't like about skype is its lack of innovation over time has remained very orthodox and attached to its roots, which makes some direct competitors like Discord lighter and versatile.

By skype having so many forms of communication serves to solve problems immediately using the shared screen feature, and thus be able to fix the difficulties that a friend or co-worker may present.

"It will always be my preferred choice for video calls"


What do you like about Skype?

The quality that Skype offers me as a video calling program is incomparable. It is perfect for work video conferences and for contacting clients. Through the platform I can show my products with the option to share screen and make sales immediately. Apps like Whatsapp have overcome Skype favoritism, but it's still an essential tool for any professional. I like chat because it's simple and emojis have moves.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Security is a problem with Skype. I don't like that just by typing a name I can already contact a person, because it means they can also do it with me. Skype demands high quality webcams and microphones for the simplest video calls. However, I understand that it is appropriate.

"SKYPE REINVENTED THE CONFERENCE CALL!"


What do you like about Skype?

It is completely free unless you subscribe to optional services. It's extremely convenient when you have to have a conference call but you are on the road. You could literally pull over beside the road and have your call. You can also have HD video call and even share screens. You can have that much needed chat with a colleague no matter the time or place. Skype is also available on many different platforms. It's understandable why its so popular.

Apart from audio, you can also do HD video calls, chat with your colleagues, share screens,

What do you dislike about Skype?

There is so means to just simply block someone via messages or phone calls. Its nice to have that option when you have a client that can't accept no. There's also no 911 integration. Safety is important and when you are a woman alone on a business trip it's nice to have that luxury. I might not ever need to call 911 but it would be nice to have the option. Also, customer service is available via chat but good luck getting connected.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

I am an claim's adjuster so I am on the road a lot. It's nice to be able to call a conference call with my boss or a co-worker if needed. I also like to Skype with my family when I am on the road. It's nice to have Skype. With a few upgrades it will be perfect.

"my business experience!!!"


What do you like about Skype?

In my opinion Skype is an excellent application because it makes it easier for companies group communications As per the video conferences of the work meetings.
of the same,Skype is a good option for international calls as it turns out to be cheaper, than the telephone providers in my country.
Although there is great competition in the Skype telephone communication market, it has managed to excel and maintain good attention and stability, which is why the company continues to maintain its membership.

What do you dislike about Skype?

In my opinion, video calls for the purpose of work conferences should be for credit recharge. As are international calls and not by the use of an external provider to the application. For example: Verizon also the chat service It should be a bit more interactive as other competitive companies.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Skype is simply fantastic! I can keep in touch with everyone by simply downloading the software and entering with my Microsoft account. I really like the features it has, I can call mobile phones and landlines all over the world (just paying a subscription) I can make calls from my computer to other Skype users, make HD video calls and group calls. In addition, I am pleased that I can share the screen and display photos or presentations without the need to send it. I also like very much that I can record the video calls, that is interesting and important. For newbies it will be very easy to use, since the interface is simple.

What do you dislike about Skype?

There aren't many things I don't like about Skype. Only that many times I want to send a file (a photo or a document) and it takes a long time to upload it, sometimes it is not finished uploading. And that those with a low-end computer may suffer slowness because when Skype starts it consumes ram memory considerably.

"A New Wave in Communication"


What do you like about Skype?

I like that Skype for many reasons but the one that comes to mind is price. It's easy on the wallet with its free video chatting and communication capabilities. I can set up a conference with one of my crews (about 35 people) at one time with no issues. It's also very easy to use. Even for those clients that have very little computer skills or they are technologically impaired. I have a client that is afraid of computers but will skype when I ask because it is so easy.

What do you dislike about Skype?

My main complaint is customer service or should I say the lack of. It takes a long time to get through to them. If you do manage to get someone to help you they either don't speak English or they are totally ignorant of how the system works. You expect your support team to be just that...supportive! I called in once with a simple problem and ended up helping the operator reboot her own styte

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Skype has helped me with a problem set of clients that do not like technology nor do they care for attending meetings. They are constantly on the road and Skype is allowing them their travels but also helps me attend meetings without inconveniencing either us. They were resistant at first but once I showed them how to access it they were happy to accommodate me. I once held a conference with four men fishing at the same time. You can't beat the convenience of that!

"Skype is a reliable and efficient source of communication"


What do you like about Skype?

What I love about Skype is that it has been able to teach the whole planet that with a minimum bandwidth of any quality can communicate and can be used both from a computer and a cell phone, which makes it super practical, program itself is very intuitive and easy to implement in companies, this program has an excellent cost-benefit ratio, added to this can be integrated with Outlook which is very important because thanks to it large organizations use it to carry out the programming of conferences and even for recruitment. The wonderful thing about this tool (Skype) is undoubtedly the necessary and practical support that VoIP has achieved all over the world. Avoiding the user any problem related to ports, IP addresses, protocols, codecs, and a large number of concepts unknown to a normal user. It has undoubtedly been the benchmark video-conference program for many years and in 2011 it was acquired by Microsoft. Analyzing the positive aspects of Skype, the following can be detailed: its installation and configuration are easy, it is an attractive application for the user, it supports most of the most important and recognized platforms, and the advantage that makes Skype stand out from other programs is that supports free calls and video-calls among your users.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Among the most important limitations or disadvantages of this program is that on considerable occasions, it emits low microphone quality, thus providing poor sound resolution. Even, repeatedly presents a poor resolution of video or webcam, so that video calls can sometimes be of low quality. If the program is not downloaded from its official website or from a reliable application store, a virus can be obtained with great ease. It is mandatory to pay if you want to make calls to fixed telephony, enter the voicemail, send data to a fax and text message, place an answering machine, among other services offered, in addition the software presents problems when you do not have a correct Internet connection.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Skype is and has been very versatile for my organization, since it has features such as presence, IM, voice and video calls, and live meetings, which are integrated with the productivity tools that people use every day, such as email, calendar and collaboration in documents, has been very useful to carry out and schedule conferences, meetings and even recruitment of staff, who have given solution and goals achievement in my organization. Skype is undoubtedly one of the best and essential tools of efficient communication used in my organization that allows you to express yourself in the most natural and accessible way.
Skype combines customer innovation in the cloud, while also connecting businesses to the largest video network in the world, Skype is primarily a business solution and facilitates many of the tasks common to group conferences, collaborative work and meetings. It has a desktop version that makes it more user-friendly on computers, especially in terms of contact management, and offers very good use. Skype allows you to share files and display the computer screen, essential for me in my meetings and conferences, to support my explanations with images or texts. Something very interesting about Skype and that has been a great contribution to my organization is that you can start a recording at any time of the video call and automatically all participants receive a notice that is being recorded. Once the recording is finished, the resulting video is saved in the Skype cloud and appears in the chat of the call. There it will be available for 30 days to be able to download it at any time and save it in the computer.

"Skype, a great tool for free communication."


What do you like about Skype?

Skype is a tool that allows communication through calls or video calls for free. Skype offers an excellent service where you can see and hear it to people you call without complications, it is a multiplatform software, so it can be used in computers, tablets, phones and some other devices. This software is available in many languages, which makes it multilingual and its download can be done for free; offers unsurpassed security with a simple and convenient interface that allows users to easily find your phone number, name or user. Skype also has an online chat that allows you to send any message, open groups, send files, gifs, images, audios and other things quickly with a simple Internet connection, currently has a web version that does its job very well. Skype allows me to make group calls and make calls to landlines or send text messages anywhere in the world, only recharging credits, this platform is updated to correct errors, which inspires a lot of confidence to the user.

What do you dislike about Skype?

While Skype is a reliable software that does its job well, it has disadvantages that no user can please, one of its disadvantages are the costs of services, since for most services it is necessary to pay. Among the utilities that must be paid are the video call communication between several users at the same time (groups), the incorporation of a telephone number, with an annual or monthly contract, and obviously with this we can send data to a fax, talk to any mobile phone or landline, send text messages, leave an answering machine, among other services. It will be paid according to the amount of data that we use, although it is generally a high consumption, in Skype it is necessary to have a correct Internet connection in order to have a good quality in calls or video, since with a Low connection it can become a problem due to the slowness of the service. Skype has a problem when making a video call and there are problems related to the quality of the microphone and also the resolution of the camera and sometimes the application consumes a lot of resources on your computer, which slows down the speed of a amazing way.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Skype is a program that offers many communication options and is also used to perform remote assistance from anywhere in the world, which helps you stay connected with all the important people in your life or even with commercial clients. Personally I use it for personal conversations with family and friends when I am away from the city due to work from a computer or a mobile phone with video calls and high quality voice calls and for free in some cases. It is a good way to save time and money, since you can open your account anywhere and even talk to several people at once.

Undoubtedly Skype has become a valuable tool, since it facilitates the best way to be connected with everyone, it is one of my favorites in the market, since it meets all the necessary characteristics with which no other account, is unique in its kind, easy to use, with better performance, I would certainly recommend to anyone who asked me an opinion on Skype, as it would serve all those people who love talking to their friends or family by video chat or just a call, in very useful in all its functions, it is very practical, it is friendly. For being a very good application software, unique for allowing a fluid and quality communication, which complies with everything necessary for committees and interviews at a distance, in an effective way that no other can, being one of the best is currently competing with many others to maintain their position, although it is true all the different companies want to be the number one but in what concerns me Skype has always remained as number one and we hope to continue in that position for a long time, to continue giving what better and hopefully bring us many more surprises as time goes by, surprises always to improve and remain the best. Skype is one of the best helpers in communication inside and outside of companies and thanks to it they are successful, all the tools that Skype offers us make us put aside all the barriers and help us to have an interaction through a very simple platform to use, one of the best advantages that we have to use this great platform, is that it allows us access from anywhere in the world, that is to say with Tigo wherever you go, where today it is essential to keep the pace And having done the job, another of its great advantages is that it is integrated with office and allows us a better way to work together to make life much easier without interruptions, it also offers basic call functions and more, plus shared use of content where you can easily share in any meeting or conversation and the most important thing and that I liked the most is the safe and manageable since all your communication Skype ions are safe, there are also Skype meetings a better way to make your meetings more relaxed or comfortable, where you will be a good host, so you can see the video preview so we can make sure you are ready before taking the call, this will help you see how you time and see the lighting and environment before going to start the live.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Most of the things that I do not like or that cause me some discomfort are not being able to start my session, just like at the time of each update I feel that it is much heavier and slower, it is also a bit annoying the fact that at any moment my account is disconnecting, another of the things that I do not like is that at times I can not send or receive messages, audio is one of the things that often also fails sometimes you can not hear or the volume changes constantly, the ads sometimes are annoying and we must be hiding them, sometimes it also gives what is the error of calls where I could neither enhance nor receive calls, and one more is when I said that can not connect With Skype, it is also a problem not to be able to connect the calls with the headset.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Mainly I use it because it is excellent for my company and it facilitates me many things, thanks to it I can make my conferences and calls from anywhere. Because thanks to its characteristics everything is easier. The problems that at some point come to the present when using Skype were successfully resolved by its support platform.

"Great for travelers or anyone with contacts abroad"


What do you like about Skype?

Skype is an incredible tool that anyone with a computer and an internet connection can use. It is quite amazing that a product of this nature is free of charge because it allows you to stay in touch with friends/families or even colleagues who are not in your immediate geographical arrea. Some of the other basic features are telephone calls (these are not free of charge) and instant messaging. It also has a few features in the same vein as Facebook for instance posting what you are doing and then being able to comment and react to other people's post. This is obviously a not as common to do on Skype so don't expect a hundred likes for one of your posts.
Now there are similar programs but Skype was the harbinger for telecommunication applications and what makes it great is that not only is it free but it is also incredibly user-friendly. My grandparents were able to figure out how to use it with minimal assistance.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Honestly there is not a whole lot to dislike about Skype. All of the potential problems one can encounter while using Skype are a product of technical issues that are not related to Skype itself. The most common problem you can face when trying to use this product is poor sound or vision quality due to a unstable internet connection. As long as both your interlocutor's internet connection and your own are solid then you will have no problems at all using Skype. It really is that simple.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Over the years I have used Skype for a number of reasons. I am currently getting a doctorate degree in Spanish & Portuguese and I have been lucky enough to have spent four years of my life living abroad. So it goes without saying that I have used Skype to stay in touch with my family and friends. I would use it to call back home at least once a week sometimes even more. I also used it to stay in close contact with my wife who one summer had to stay in Spain while I went back home. Skype really was a lifesaver during this time because without it we surely would have racked up a very expensive phone bill.
A few times throughout my stay in Spain I needed to interview with potential graduate programs. Again, without access to Skype going through with these interviews would have been much more stressful, expensive and perhaps not even possible. Having Skype at one's disposal can eliminate any obstacles that distance can create. I know that almost all of my colleagues in my current graduate department were asked to interview with faculty before being accepted into the program. So, again, without a program like Skype these long distance interviews would be a lot more complex to carry out.
Another use of Skype for me is being able to tutor a client or student who is far away. An easy way to make some extra money on the side as an English speaker is to teach online. A lot of companies employ Skype for these purposes. Yet another reason for my using Skype was that at my wedding since many of my family members (and my wife's family members as well) were unable to make the trip because we had a destination wedding. Years ago this would have meant that these family members who have had to content themselves with pictures of the event afterwards. Thanks to Skype they were able to watch and feel like they were included on our special day.
If I had to sum it up in a concise sentence I would say Skype goes a long way in minimizing distances.

"Convenience of being close to everyone we like"


What do you like about Skype?

The application brings a great ease of calls. It is an amazing communicative tool, its features are fun activities it has between using instant messaging (chat), interacting with multiple users of quick conversations, or using audio calls or video conferencing for a more complex and productive conversation.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Videoconferencing is very effective for meetings and face-to-face meetings with several other users and very attractive and interesting. But, it depends a lot on a good connection with the interent. Without a quality one, we will not have a good image and audio.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Of the great features that the program has for its use. It is very useful is also the possibility of recording the video conference that occurred in the online room. This is very productive for those who are not part of the team at the time of the meeting.

What do you like about Skype?

What I like is that it has a high performance and it is very convenient to share images, videos, videos and much more. I can call anyone in the world without any problem or restriction. It works with all firewalls, NAT and routers. Nothing to reconfigure. The positive point is that Skype calls have a high sound quality and are very secure, and it works on most computers: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Pocket Out are also easy and quick to install and are available in a lot of languages. what multilingual software does

What do you dislike about Skype?

Sometimes the connection is very bad. Another limitation is that you can not even, if you want to share more than 300 MB of files between friends, something that should be emphasized in the improvement and that does not integrate very well in the Apple operating system. For most services you have to pay. Among the services that you have to pay, you will find: communication by video call between several users at the same time (group), the incorporation of a phone number, with an annual or monthly contract, talk to any mobile phone or landline, send text messages , leave an answering machine and, finally, sometimes, there are often problems related to the quality of the microphone and also with the resolution of the webcam to make a quality video call.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

I use it to communicate quickly and efficiently among employees, family and friends, it has helped me to make meetings with my team, being a different option to align strategies if necessary. You can give or receive a videoconference that is more convenient and cheaper compared to other means or tools in that order, if you need to hold a business meeting, this useful tool allows us to conduct meetings interactively without the presence of any of the participants.

Skype is the best messaging app in corporate world. almost all organizations in the world using Skype for communication. It provide the advantages of chatting, making group calls and sharing interesting emojis and files.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Over the past few updates, I feel like Skype is getting slower. On desktop, Skype takes a while to load up and I sometimes forget about it by using the mobile application instead because it's faster. The past updates have been useless, it's just aesthetic or physical appearances on the app. I would love a useful update, not some bloat features and style changes.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

I can communicate to my customers very quickly. This is much better than using email, which is slower than Skype. If a customer have questions, I can answer them right away and they can even ask more questions while I'm at it. It definitely feels as if you're talking to someone face to face—there's just no waiting.

"Skype, the correct way to communicate."


What do you like about Skype?

I love this application that I can always be connected, I can travel anywhere in the world and keep in touch with my family or people from my work. What I like the most about this excellent tool is that it allows me to make video calls both to cell phones and computers, besides the interface is very intuitive, easy to use and allows me in video calls, screen sharing and documents. This tool is extremely useful. Another thing that I like is that it has good calling plans to international numbers, for $ 13.99 it allows me to call unlimitedly to any phone number in the world. I like that I can save money with this platform, since having an international call plan with my phone provider is very expensive, with Skype I pay little and call unlimitedly.

What do you dislike about Skype?

As all software is always going to be a disadvantage, in the case of Skype is that when sharing files sometimes gives an error and does not share, and that greatly limits the large files. I also do not like that this platform eliminates chats when you stop writing for a long time, sometimes I have needed to look for some very old chat information and when I check the chat it was deleted.

I love that it is a very modern and versatile tool, that it is very easy to use and very useful because it allows to make video calls from any part of the world at any time either with a colleague or relative, to that conversation several people can be united as well as share the screen if you want the other person to see something of mutual interest, that is why I think it can be useful on a personal as well as business level since communication is much more direct.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Sometimes the audio is affected by what doing video calls so it is somewhat uncomfortable, but nevertheless I think it may be due to an internet failure.

"A great communications platform"


What do you like about Skype?

The ability to make video calls or simple voice calls with all my partners or customers no matter where they are in the world individually or in groups, in a completely free, secure and practical is what makes Skype such a special service for me and my business. Also, we like the possibility offered by Skype to make calls to any mobile phone in the world even if it does not have Skype service, this paying a really low price (which varies depending on the place you call, for example, if you only want to call within the United States, the cost is $2.99 per month, if you only want to call numbers within North America, i.e. Mexico, USA and Canada, the cost is $6.99 per month, and if you want to call anywhere outside these areas the cost will be $13.99 per month (you can only call 64 countries which are specified on the skype website).

What do you dislike about Skype?

What I don't like about Skype are the occasional lows in its image quality that get in the way when making video calls. I've had problems with some clients because of these failures, however as they are not so frequent (on average 1 failure per month) they don't affect my experience in a serious way. Apart from this, I don't find any other problems to highlight.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

I have been using skype to communicate with the partners and clients of my company in my work environment, as well as to communicate with my family and friends in my personal environment. Skype has given me a completely free way to make my business more flexible and universal.

"It's a simple application for messaging."

// Jr Software Engineer at RapidFire Tools

What do you like about Skype?

It's easy to message other users, send files, send group chats, and share screens. It's convenient for small businesses with 20 employees or less since it's free if you only have that many employees. The business version and non-business version are very similar so users familiar with one will be familiar with the other one.

What do you dislike about Skype?

This happens very, very rarely but sometimes you get added by an automated bot that tries to send you spam or get you to click other annoying links. But this happens very rarely now so they've made improvements in this area.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

It's an easy to use application for communicating and collaborating with other users.

"software that allows to perform various types of communications"

// Group Brand Manager at Publix Super Markets

What do you like about Skype?

There are many things that I like about this software, for example it is multiplatform. This means that I can link Skype with computers or notebooks, smartphones, tablets, home landlines, Smart TV and for the Xbox One.
Skype supports several operating systems. For computers, it is possible to install it in Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, Mac OS X and Linux. For mobile, in Windows Phone, Symbian OS, Android, BlackBerry 10 and iOS.
An advantage is that the communication between two users with Skype is free, allowing to make a chat, calls by voice and also videoconferences.
The software download is also completely free.

What do you dislike about Skype?

Something that I do not like much is that for most services it is necessary to pay, obviously with this I can talk with any mobile or landline, send text messages, leave an answering machine, among other services. It will obviously be paid according to the amount of data you use.
It is necessary to have a correct Internet connection. From a tablet or a smartphone, we can have problems if we are not connected to a Wi-Fi network. There are usually problems related to the quality of the microphone and also to the resolution of the webcam to make a quality video call. The platform in question that is being used can be slowed down a lot. It often happens with computers, which occupy a lot of RAM.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Communication is one of the most important aspects of running a business. I work more quickly, smarter and save money. companies can solve any technical communication problem that a company has and, at the same time, benefit the economy of the company. Skype helps you overcome the barriers of expenses, distances and technologies, so that you can get more out of work, wherever you are in the world.

Its an external drawback but when you are out of WI-Fi and uses data connection the quality of video is not well. Skype uses too old emojis and it does not supports stickers and GIF’s. It takes a lot of RAM while using software. When you copy paste files to Skype sometimes it fails. The android app off Skype is also very heavy.

"Skype and the great collaboration in an organization."

// Co CEO at E*TRADE

What do you like about Skype?

Skype is a platform that I specifically consider it one of the best to make calls, for the following reasons.

- I have noticed that its operation is quite fast and light, it is not necessary to do a quite complex process to make a call or a long distance conference.

- It has group calls, something very functional and that has a great impact for companies.

- Provides a clean interface where accessing each of the sections of the UI is extremely easy.

What do you dislike about Skype?

The problem with Skype is located in the functions that can be exercised from a mobile phone, clearly the functions are almost the same, however the quality of video provided to users is not the same and does not compare at any time with the application for computers. The quality in the phones is ugly, I would like it to be improved for better handling.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

Skype is being an absolute trend within my company, providing an immediate quality in the calls and conferencais we make over long distance. Sometimes in my company we have to make long-distance contracts, and even when we do not have how to communicate with some of our colleagues, with Skype we can do it.

"Excellent for communicating with friends, family and clients"

// Supervisor of Operations at INVENSENSE ITALY S.R.L.

What do you like about Skype?

Skype is an excellent product that will allow you to keep in touch with friends, family and customers. No other product can offer this quality.

I use Skype every day thanks to the fact that most of my friends and clients also use this product.

Sometimes the quality of the audio call is bad, this happens only if the internet connection is slow.

"The undisputed leader in the video calling market"

// independiente at Free-lance

What do you like about Skype?

I like the ease with which the program advances, that they always think of the user in such simple things as the interface, to the stability that each call offers. It is a wonder to be able to count on all its tools to explain to clients in other countries, how to solve the issues related to work. In the personal case, it is ideal to keep in touch with friends and family, it is true that there are other messaging services that have recently included video calls, but none equals the quality and stability that Skype offers. Another important element for me is that it is cross-platform, I can use it on Mac, Linux or Windows, even on my cell.

What do you dislike about Skype?

The customer service could be improved is good, but the response to requests for keys and other is slow compared to the competition. Another element is that it has not evolved into a market dominated by Telegram and WhatsApp, the instant messaging, video calls with your experience can give battle and easily lead the market in this sector. While improvements apply to the stability and quality that is highly valued, have not focused on expanding their resources to new generations and new markets, is an aspect that instant messaging services do not neglect. Improving those aspects the current scenario would change completely for Skype.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Skype solve?

The customer service could be improved it is good, but the response to requests for keys and others is slow compared to the competition. Another element is that it has not evolved to a market Telegram and WhatsApp have dominated the IM, with its expertise in video calls can easily put up a fight and lead the market in this sector. Closed platforms end up closing or passing new features other services, I hope you achieve up innovations that make it more attractive to Skype every day. Which brings me to identify the exclusive use Hotmail account to a calling, their chances would be good amass looking for a better mechanism than a single registration email provider.
