"Skype"

What do you like best?

The ease - I was in France and really needed to get in touch with my sister in NYC. I signed up and in a couple of minutes, we were communicating. I travel frequently abroad and it is by far the easiest way to communicate because I don't have to rely on the person I'm calling to have Skype as well - unlike other similar calling services.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a fan of the Skype Credit feature in $10 increments. I think they should have pay as you go feature without a monthly fee. Would prefer more options for payment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Skype is a great communication service - particularly because it offers calling to standard phone lines and free group video calling

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Skype for business only once and that was to interview a job candidate. It solved the issue of flying that candidate in town for the interview which saved us money and time. In the future, I will consider using Skype for more interviews

"Skype Review"

What do you like best?

I like using Skype because it connects me and my sales team around the United States so that we can all be on the same page at any given time, SDC uses skype for most of our inside sales meeting and even our outside sales meetings. our marketing team uses this extensively and it is a very handy tool because unlike traditional conference calls and such, Skype allows you to read peoples faces and expressions letting you know where they are at in there mind, headspace and in the conversation . its nice to be able to know that you have someone full attention and that they are intently listing. there is nothing that I can say bad about this service and I truly appreciate it both at home in my personal life and in the office at my job and workplace. its connecting people on a different level and that's the biggest benefit to me personally. I am a proud user of Skype and will continue to use it for as long as I can foresee

What do you dislike?

There is little I can say in regards to dislikes about this program, app, tool, service, for the most part. It is reliable works well and is extremely easy to use. the only thing that I would say about a dislike about this product really has nothing to do with the product at all but more rather a connection issue. every now and aging the screen can get pixelated and it will freeze up or get distorted, but again I believe this is an issue with connections on either end of the video call and not the actual Skype program itself so I don't take it into consideration of skype's performance much. other than that I have no problems with it and will continue to use it on a regular basis

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this program to anyone that need connectivity on a small or large scale

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

as I said before it allows all of my associates to keep in touch and be on the same page no matter where they may be and it also allows me to do product training remotely to groups interested in our product and has many many other very helpful uses for us, me and my team. and I would also have to say that in general it honestly just plain makes like a lot easier for everybody in regards to communication withing in our company and our organization at a whole keeping us at the top of our game in the industry

What Video Conferencing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Matchless product for official communications. Grasping UI design with almost every required feature"

What do you like best?

Skype has been a part and parcel of my daily official life, I use it all the time to keep in touch with my colleagues and clients. What I like the most is great UI design and ease of navigation between users. Also the features like integrated emojis and animated emojis are best. Also the calling feature, which has already been a top most feature of Skype.

For file sharing like daily reports and presentations based on projects, the file upload and camera implementation in best to use. Also the integration with almost every sharing and camera app in mobile platform makes it more convenient to share contents on Skype quickly and easily.

The loading screen of signin/signup is also very easy to navigate and understand each and every option easily. Also the signin options for phone, email and ID makes it very easy to remember the login credentials and never use the forgot username option, yes in case of password it is required, obviously it's necessary and secure too.

Skype is best for organisations with large employees size as well as personal use too. I use it for both and daily.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the frequent updates become very annoying but it's not a big issue for me though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are running organisations with large employees size and keep everyone in touch with each other, then skype is best for this purpose, best and matchless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being a web developer and programer I used to send my daily codes to my employer and trainer and to conversate with my clients for project discussions.

The greatest benifit is that it keep us connected with each other and helps in calling face to face as well.

"Talk about video calls is talk about Skype without any doubt."

What do you like best?

What I like the most about Skype is not a program that requires extensive knowledge, which allows anyone to use it, from anywhere in the world and from any device from a PC, a tablet or a cell phone regardless of their operating system. that is present in both Android and iOS, thanks to Skype I can communicate with colleagues across the country through videoconferencing, allows communication between employees effectively.

What do you dislike?

Skype is a program that I like very much, but that does not free it from having certain faults which I do not like, such as when you make calls in remote areas where the Internet connection is not optimal means that the quality of the calls will be pessimistic and tending to disconnect spontaneously.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Skype is a program that I recommend with closed eyes, few programs allow such efficient communication and are also present on all platforms, really if you are looking for the best program for both voice and video calls do not think more, Skype is the number one program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to Skype we can engage in videoconference conversations with other colleagues, as well as with a member of the company's top management, often these conferences are intended to communicate important announcements within the organization.

"Effective communication"

What do you like best?

I like that skype gives me one place where I can collaborate with my employees, clients and people whom we outsource work to. I like that skype allows for large file transfers, high quality image uploads and can support voice calls with large amounts of people as well as allow for screen sharing sessions for effective collaboration and review.

What do you dislike?

I sometimes dislike that skype can be a little annoying to set up notifications for, i want to be notified when certain things happen and when certain other things happen id like to be able to opt out of receiving notifications, i sometimes feel like i get bombarded with notifications I don't need to see. I also have quite a few issues with calls being randomly dropped and having to send files multiple times for them to go through.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend that you have a very stable and strong internet connection and that you take the time to implement and organize your contact list so you know who is messaging you. I would also recommend taking the time to tweak all of the setting to your liking so you don't have to constantly go back and change them all whenever something is not right.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of having disorganized communication and a lack of communication by implementing the use of skype throughout our employees and customer base as a means of effective and reliable communication.

"Good sales with Skype"

What do you like best?

Skype is a tool easy to use, anyone with a minimum knowledge, computers, I can use it, from anywhere in the world, and from any device, thanks to it, we can communicate with our customers, employees, distributors, suppliers and other people related to our business, in the best way, video calls in particular, we love them, because they bring us closer to our customers, and we give them a plus more confidence towards us.

What do you dislike?

There are not many faults that can be found in Skype, Microsoft has left behind, those problems that had the application in a past time, the past versions were very slow, but now everything has improved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Skype is a powerful tool, which helps us solve a huge amount of problems, at Lee's, our customers communicate with us, to give us their opinions, about the food they consume on our sites, what improvements we can make, and new products want us to bring them to the table, Asian food, is our strong point, thanks to Skype we can communicate with our suppliers in the Middle East, in a fast and simple way, so we have the best elements to prepare our meals, day after day, and we can monitor in advance, what we are going to ask, what we really need, and be in the best possible state.

"Convenient Platform for Social Connections"

What do you like best?

Skype is user friendly, has wonderful features, and can be used as a phone with a monthly subscription. I use Skype on both a personal and professional level.

On a personal level, Skype allows me to have Group calls with friends and family. We can all talk and share video at the same time.

The same can be said for business use. Skype gives you the ability to not only have meetings with one person or multiple people but to file share or have video capabilities within the group.

What do you dislike?

I feel that the monthly subscription for all calls is a deterrent when Gmail allows you to make free calls using their platform.

I also do not like the character limit of the chat box. While some may consider it generous when compared to other social media sites, one could not share the entirety of an article without Skype cutting the text when it reaches the character limit.

The file sharing is amazing, and it solves this issue; however, when I just want to C/P into my messenger window I often run into issues with the limited character size.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are having any issue with Skype, check to be sure that your version is updated to the latest version. Updating to the latest version has always fixed any call or video issue that I have ever had with this platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Conferencing. Messaging. It saves a paper-trail.

"My experience using Skype for Support"

What do you like best?

Skype is a good program that helps us provide direct and efficient support to our customers, keeping us in touch with them through their live chat. We are also allowed to make calls and video calls in real time, so that the deal with the client is more friendly and direct. The program is constantly updated, it is modern and intuitive, very easy to install and use. In addition to offering an affordable price that can benefit small businesses.

What do you dislike?

Skype does not have something that we really dislike, until now it has covered the expectations of contact with the client in our company in the time we have been implementing it as a support tool. But if we could mention some points that could affect the user experience with the support of our company, for example, if the user does not have a good Internet connection it is possible that he can not make live calls, which can be a problem when you want to provide direct assistance and instantly with the client through this means.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They could improve the quality of the support a bit when we have concerns or want to report some connection failure or quality of the video calls.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Skype helps us communicate with customers who are in other countries, make long distance calls and can even make them for free, live chat and even video calls. They could improve connectivity in case the client does not have an optimal connection.

" Essential Quick Communication"

What do you like best?

Using Skype is the perfect way to answer in the moment questions for agents, reach out to other agents or supervisors to meet, set up specialized chat rooms, and more. I am part of a training team, and using Skype I can broadcast my screen easily with agents for virtual training.

What do you dislike?

One thing I would love is the ability to only receive notifications for people I select. For example, I have several chat rooms opened to monitor operations at a high level, while also having individual messages open to other associates. If I could, I would like to turn off notifications (the yellow highlight in Windows) for all new chats except for those of my choosing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really helpful when trying to see if someone already left for the day or if they would be at their desk

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Chat rooms help organize us into teams. Supervisors have authorization to create team-only chat rooms and easily manage these.

"Skype shortening distance."

What I like most about Skype is that it allows me to be connected at all times, allowing me to keep in constant contact with the people that interest me.

In addition to the above, I like it because I have allowed teaching and learning in class through this resource.

The world is changing and next to it the people are therefore so important the use of them. additionally it is easy and simple to use.

"Awesome tool for keeping our worldwide team connected!"

What do you like best?

I remember using Skype back when it was just a messaging tool. Then it was that you could call anywhere, landline or not, which was amazing. Now we hold meetings with up to 5 people at a time, share files, manage customer calls, and so much more! I truly can't imagine using any other communications system.

What do you dislike?

Some of the recent updates are kind of ugly and non-productive. It always happens when software or site updates and you don't get a chance to keep the old layout or not. We'll deal with it though!

Recommendations to others considering the product

The cost of making overseas phone calls is astronomical without Skype.

The cost of online meeting software is astronomical without Skype.

File sharing, group conversations and chats, having a way to receive phone calls at your desk or on your phone without giving your personal phone number, there are SO MANY REASONS to have Skype in your business arsenal!

It's amazing how clear and high quality our calls are. Sure, some drop here and there, but it's just as wonderful on my iPhone as it is on my desktop. Calls rarely drop, but

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team stretches from Seattle to Scotland, and Skype keeps us all connected. We can manage team meetings, file share, and so much more!

"A great communication and collaboration tool"

What do you like best?

Easy to use and really simple to share and collaborate with our developers. It is very quick to get a meeting started, whether it is just two participants or many.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally can run into technical or quality issues, however these instances are rare. Although the software is constantly updated (which is a positive), I find that sometimes features that I have become accustomed to end up being changed which can be somewhat frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Skype is easy to use and quick to initiate a meeting. Tools are intuitive and service and call quality are generally quite reliable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Definitely makes it easier to share and collaborate with developers. Having one communication tool to text, video-conference, share files, screens and more, makes team collaboration much more efficient while minimizing chances of misunderstandings.Face-to-face video calls also help in the communication process, as you can get a much better understanding of someone's participation and comprehension when you have facial cues available in addition to just voice or written messages.

"The Go-To Instant Messenging Service"

What do you like best?

How universally easy it is to use, for everyone. There's no language barriers, everything on the interface has great user-experience and clear icons making it clear what every option does. I've been using Skype since 2012, not once have I searched for any tutorials or requested any help, the interface is designed exceptionally well and easy for anyone to follow.

Skype also supports video conferences and voice call, alongside instant messaging - this is an extremely handy feature, especially because it's completely free! It's my go-to for online communication. I use the video call feature for online conferences and meetings. Video chatting, phone calls and instant messaging has never been easier!

What do you dislike?

I have never experienced any negatives with Skype until recently, they were forcing Windows users to install the Windows version from the Microsoft store. Not that there's a massive problem with this version. it's just that the desktop version was far more superior and had a much cleaner UI. I do think they should give users the option to opt back in for the older interface, as opposed to forcing this new version on everyone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd definitely recommend Skype to anybody who is involved with online communication, whether that's personal life or business life. It's great, easy to use and pretty much the go-to solution for online communication. Considering that it's free software, you can't really go wrong with downloading it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ease of video conferences, phone calls, messaging, sharing videos and media makes communication in my business life (and personal) a lot more convenient. The traditional way would be to email one another, but Skype is great for any unofficial business communication and speeds up the workflow massively.

"Use Skype Constantly, but Can Be Frustrating"

What do you like best?

Skype is really easy to use. And we've been using it for so long (from before Microsoft bought it) that it's constantly in use at our company. We don't have it connected to anything else, we don't worry about it - it's there when we need to chat.

What do you dislike?

Skype doesn't seem to be improving. In fact some of the features seem to degrade with new releases. I'm always happy when a service I use releases new features - but if they don't add value, are confusing for old users, or even break existing features - I'd rather they allow us to lock a certain version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider other solutions such as Slack first IF you would be using Skype only for messaging. Other products seem to be advancing more rapidly, while Skype is pretty much the same.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We primarily use Skype for internal communications, although I also use it for calling - especially internationally. It's a cheap and effective means for our teams to communicate, and when we need to store information or need for functionality, we will incorporate Slack, Confluence, etc.

"Excelente to conect to other people far away "

What do you like best?

It has a really good connection, it has a really good interface, easy to use, what makes it greater is that theres a lot of people using it so its really easy to connect using this tool.

What do you dislike?

Finding and adding people to your friends area results really slow and some times you cant even know if they have been added correctly or not, even some time i have finished adding some people more than once because i dont know if it has been successfully added.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a great producto to make direct calls to colleges in different parts of the world or even in your same country, the app is also really helpful so you can use it from your cell phone. In my job there are a lot of times im not at the office or im traveling from one part to another so having the app in the cell phone really helps, this way you can join conference and meeting and your mobility is not reduced.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its really easy to make conference calls with people all around the world, i work in a company that has its head quarters in Japan and i live in Mexico, i also talk a lot to the office that is in USA and we have a lot of contact with a lot of people based all around the world.its amazing to make calls to people far away. Also to make conference calls it has been so helpful.

"Great software for communication."

What do you like best?

First i have to say that Skype is a software that was meant for all communication needs.have used Skype for 7 years now and it has helped me to reach many friends from different countries. This app is easy to use,available and affordable. The interface isn't complicated like other communication apps.In our company, it has been easy to communicate since Skype requires only internet connection. Its the best application we have for video conferencing and also audio calls. Skype features are nice since you can set it to "do not disturb" mode and also when making a video call, the recipient is able to see you and talk nonstop.Not forgetting groups that help us as employees to receive updates.Skype is the best communication app.

"Best communication Tool for Personal & Professional life"

What do you like best?

Using Skype has benefited me a lot on my professional life, where it sounds really professional. The best tool to share media of any types such a image, document of pdf or word as well. I really appreciate the quality of phone call as well as video call.Instant messaging service is a boon for any type of industry. There are lot of features like Conducting Polling, scheduling meeting, call recording features as well.

What do you dislike?

Something worried about Skype is about the call background noises, which I have tried with different audio inputs.Message tracking could also be added. The new skype has lot more features where you can even track the message you sent have been read or not. Another thing I dislike is that on my PC even when I close my skype app my Friends where able to see my status online. This could lead to miss understanding.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best communication tool where you will be able to do many things starting from sharing files of Images, word documents, Pdf files, Videos. You can even conduct video conference, conduct quick poll, schedule meeting, reminders.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick messaging tool, where short team meetings can be held on Skype instead of wasting time in gathering full team members to a particular meeting hall. Screen sharing options helped me a lot during work from home option where I can share my screen & provide necessary assistance when needed.

"Funcional y sencillo, pero algo desactualizado."

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Skype es que está instalado de serie en todos los ordenadores con windows, lo que facilita la interconexión con desconocidos proporcionando un simple nombre de usuario. Además su sistema de videoconferencia y llamadas es muy intuitivo y simple, va directo a lo importante y no complica las cosas innecesariamente como sí hacen otros programas.

What do you dislike?

Podría criticar que no ofrece muchas funcionalidades como otros programas, pero es algo que sacrifica en favor de una interfaz más sencilla para cualquier persona. Si lo que necesitas es hacer una llamada o videollamada rápida, es mejor así.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A cualquier persona le recomiendo que busque en su PC skype si no lo ha hecho ya, y se sorprenderá al encontrar que ya lo tenía instalado y múltiples conocidos que ya lo están utilizando.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo he utilizado tanto para contactar con la prensa en entrevistas, como para entrevistas de trabajo, contactar con familia... Y por supusto multiconferencia con mis compañeros de trabajo cuando la distancia no nos permitía reunirnos de forma física. A día de hoy se sigue utilizando para estas cosas.

"Easy and quick conference videos."

What do you like best?

In general, Skype has fulfilled my expectations, mainly I use it to communicate with my partners through videoconferencing, since my job is to move from one place to another constantly, therefore, through my mobile phone we make our meetings practical, easy and fast Also, of course, I communicate with my relatives, especially with those who are abroad. When I'm at home, I can use it on my computer. That's the good, it's very versatile.

What do you dislike?

Although it has been a tool that has met my expectations since I use it, I have noticed that it sometimes collapses and gets stuck. Therefore, I feel the need to close and open the application again. With regard to everything else, everything is fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although it is not the only video conferencing tool that exists in the market, I consider it one of the best and very easy to use, therefore, the recommendation faithfully.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The communication and the contact with my partners is of vital importance in my work, and Skype has solved this problem. I can meet with them through video conference when necessary and in a very quick and easy way.

I love how easy it is to use. I have been using it for years on all kinds of devices to do short distance and long distance calls. It supports long calls and you can do video calls and voice calls. It is easy to upload contacts and find your friends. It runs on all systems so when I did not have apple i was able to use it to video chat with clients.

Sometimes it would take a really long time to open no matter what device I was using. But other than that I really never had any difficulties with it.

When you send a request to a new contact, you can find that if we have mutual contacts with that person. However we cannot find who are all the mutual contacts. Also it often needs an update to continue using.

Sometimes the connection is slow.
