Great program

What do you like best?

It is easy to use and setup. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people in other locations. SKYPE is a website that allows users to communicate using video and voice calls. Its basic features are free, but you also can access additional features such as group video calls or SMS, either by paying as you go or subscribing.

What do you dislike?

They made account verification so tight that it's frustrating for even the authentic user to verify her/himself. When you contact their support they ask you to fill the same form that has 21 fields, the numbers of steps they will take to resolve your issue. So say your account is compromised; that means you will contact them with the issue; that's 1, they will restrict your account; that's 2, they'll ask you to change your password; that's 3, they remove the restriction from your account so that you can use it again; that's 4; & so on...

Which means that you can keep filling the same exact form with the same exact information on every step of the way for the same issue. So if they will have to follow 24 steps, you will need to fill the same form 24 times

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use your Microsoft Account to make it easier to setup and use!

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

I am able to have meetings with other people in other states with no travel involved.

Great for calls and text if needed.

What do you like best?

Easy to call someone and can be international or local. Searching friends is easy. it gives much more emoticons and updates for subscription. It has a promo for unlimited call in specific country. Records history chat and doesn't load slow that can easily find the specific chat references.

What do you dislike?

Need WiFi for free calls but only local. Hard to have a quality video because it need so much of internet to better video calls. Not that cheap of price for subscription. Sometimes updates can be confusing and too much of features that needed to understand

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great software to use for connecting with clients or personal reasons. It can give a call subscription that can call in other countries like America or Asian countries. It has promos that can benefit to be in more cheaper price that can help us to communicate well in our clients. This is really recommended because it is already a world wide product which is already tested by a lot of people even the self employed people in using online businesses.

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

It easily to communicate with our clients and there are apps that can connect with Skype that can be used to record. You cab connect apps that can do additional features in the call. It gives quality video and calls that helps more to understand the physical appearance of the person that we communicated with. It gives setting that makes the calls much more better.

Skype forever

What do you like best?

I signed up for skype back in 2007, from that time several times the personal need for this software changed. But there is no need to re-negotiate with potential clients. Skype is one of the main means of communication. The possibility of unlimited communication time, presentation of the screen even in the free version satisfies not only personal needs, but also is a great working tool. Easy to use program to transfer files.

What do you dislike?

I do not have a big complaint, but for a long time I did not like the version of the program for Linux OS. Namely releases 4.1 and 4.3. Not a convenient and not attractive interface. Also, new users are automatically assigned a nickname that is not very convenient for searching or writing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would like to point out users who are looking for a tool for confident communication and screen capture, we have found a non-replaceable tool for presenting our own development to potential customers.

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

Selection of separate discussions on problem issues with partners, clients or colleagues, which allows for more rapid reaction of all participants in the conversation. The collective video conferencing and the "screen demonstration" function are a permanent active tool in the work.

I have many ways to communicate.

What do you like best?

Best of all are the video conferences, in addition to being able to share all kinds of data, including videos, images, texts, among others with all my loved ones and coworkers, in a very fast and uncomplicated way. Another advantage is that Skype has a free license, your calls are free and you will always be online with all your contacts.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like very much, is that you have to have a good machine or PC and a good connection to the internet so that there is no interruption or freezing of the image, and thus the conversations are smooth, without the need to repeat information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before starting with this world of videoconferences, it is necessary that you take into account having a good Internet connection so that conversations are fluid and you can not miss any detail. It is a very safe, free and easy to use application. In addition to always being in touch with your friends.

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

This program allows me to be in contact with my loved ones who are at a great distance, in addition to sharing experiences with my coworkers.

Skype

What do you like best?

I love that Skype is easy and most everyone has it and knows how to use it. Being a hospitality business it is then easier to speak to one property or another or all of them at the same time. We use this to communicate frequently either via chat or cam depending on the situation. It is also able to be used across many devices and has a good phone app so you can communicate offsite via your phone if you need to.

What do you dislike?

It can be a little iffy sometimes the connections so you have to go out and restart it but for just regular communications it is sufficient

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a super easy platform that doesn't require a lot of computer skill or training so its easy for everyone and can be used across all devices so that is good as well

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

This enables us to communicate quickly and easily. It is a less formal platform than GoToMeeting or WebEx so not difficult for everyone to learn. It has helped us communicate more efficiently and quickly with each other in a less formal way.

You will not find such good quality program like this

What do you like best?

The stability and the quality that it offers you in each call, is the perfect ally for the work by Internet, for me, that I work by this means is essential to me. I have not found a similar program that allows me to have shared desktops as good quality as that Skype offers. No hidden interests, is best.

What do you dislike?

It could be lighter and open to the possibility of competing with WhatsApp and Telegram, I have no criticism of its performance because it is wonderful. At present there are few accounts hotmail used, this is somewhat annoying for those who use the Google platform, it is an aspect to review if they want to win new audiences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're new to the world of work online you may not know Skype, but nothing happens, it is easy to use and you can get to know your benefits, if instead you have a lot of time using other platforms and still not make the decision I have to say this is the time, you'll save money and you will have software that is available for mobile and desktop computers.

Besides having everything you need to shorten distances when working with a person located anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

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

I can meet all my clients, work with them without interruption. Meetings at any time and anywhere calls thanks to its multiplatform benefits. It helps me to keep in a single text, audio and video program, there are clear messaging platforms but do not have the experience of Skype. I would recommend it without hesitation.
