Availability. Skype is absolutely free. You can go to the office. website and download the program directly from it. After registration, you can immediately use "Skype" for its intended purpose. It is worth saying that it is possible to call from it so to the phones, BUT only after you replenish the account. (Unlimited calls to fixed-line phones in the direction: Russia - $ 6.99 per month. Unlimited World plan + calls to fixed-line phones in: Russia - $ 13.99 per month)
Nice interface. An experienced PC user will easily understand the interface. It’s easy to find your friend and add him to your contact list. For this is a definite plus. (There is also support for the Russian language. I don’t think it’s worthwhile to put it into a separate plus, since all of my well-known analogues of Skype are similarly localized into Russian)
Functionality. In "Skype" is all that is necessary for the ordinary user. Voice calls, video calls, the ability to share files, create group calls, as well as showing the screen to the other party. This is the standard functionality that "Skype" asked its competitors for several years to come.
Bad connection. The main objective of the program is to connect people at a distance so that they can exchange information. But with this "Skype" does not always cope well. There are communication interruptions. Not understandable hangs when the interlocutor becomes a robot. Video calls also suffer from the quality of communication. The picture is divided into many pixels in the resolution of 360p. It happened that the call itself ended. The same program can fly. It is connected, most likely with optimization. I used the program on Windows. I can not say how the program behaves on other operating systems.
Advertising. Yes, the program is free. It would seem, then what to complain about? Developers need to earn something. They have a subscription, the cost of which is beyond the limits. And yes, why there is no advertising in similar applications?
Nice interface. An experienced PC user will easily understand the interface. It’s easy to find your friend and add him to your contact list.
This program helped me to build a relationship with my business partner.
