"Perfect for businesses and personal use"

What do you like best?

The fact that many people have a Skype account is the best part :) With less known platforms, sometimes you'd have to create a separate account in another program, but most have Skype. Also, it is available for almost all the platforms - Apple, Windows, Linux operating systems plus the mobile (native iOS, Android, and WindowsPhone).

It also has video conferencing opportunities and the shared screen feature, which is very useful, especially if you need to show your client a presentation.

You can also easily transfer files (presentations or working documents or pictures) via Skype.

There is another feature: getting a direct link to the group chat that you can send to your colleagues, friends, post it on the internet (in case, for example, you have a webinar coming up that you want people to see and not do it via Facebook or other networks.)

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the quality of the calls are not the best, but that mostly depends on the internet connection strength.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a product that is available for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Web (and all the major mobile devices) - Skype is your solution. Easy to set up, quite easy to use. Sometimes it has trouble with connection, but most of the time, there's no problem.

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

1. We keep our clients updated regarding their projects via video/voice calls

2. We meet with potential clients via Skype, especially if they are in another town/country

3. We conduct job interviews over Skype with those candidates, who currently live in another location, yet are interested in the job enough to move and we are interested in their abilities.

"Communicate with your customers via Skype"

What do you like best?

From Skype we like that we can communicate with our customers and workers with video calls, instant messages and voice calls in real time and for free. It has also allowed us to make calls to mobile phones for a low cost and share files if necessary. Skype is like a virtual phone not so common but certainly with very good features.

What do you dislike?

One of the cons of Skype in terms of call quality is that if we do not have good Internet connection the calls are slow, you hear the choppy audio and you can even hang the call unexpectedly, the video image can be pixelated, which affects the customer experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to use a modern, intuitive program, with recent updates and most important of all, allows you to provide support, make calls live and almost anywhere in the world, Skype is the program that we can recommend for you, for your personal or business use.

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

In what we have been able to benefit most with this program is to be able to meet the requests of our clients, it has allowed us to have direct contact with them, we can call them and even make video calls, which allows us to gain their trust and provide them with security. Through the same platform we can send and receive files when necessary. And we have also been able to hold meetings with our team when we are in different places.

"reliable video calls with skype"

What do you like best?

it can be used on multiple platforms like Android, Apple, and even on Xbox.

Another advantage of Skype is the ability to video chat with people in other countries for free.

Sharing the screen is to feel that more than a call or video conference is something more complete at the time of communication with the person.

What do you dislike?

At times, voice gets muffled -> probably due to the bad microphone, room environment or even feedback from speakers.

skype requires network connection and a strong one. This simply means that you cannot use it in a place with slow or poor network.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would advice those people who want to enjoy free calls either audio at video to get this app. It is also easy to use, fast and very reliable.

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

Saving Money and time due to free Skype to Skype calls.

with free skype to skype calls we are able to communicate very clearly with staff abroad or in diaspora saving money and time.

"skype is useful"

What do you like best?

It is very useful the level of communication is fast

Through this medium I have been able to solve problems that require me to personally meet someone but I do a video call and it is like having it next to the person

If I am far away from the company and I can not reach it, I communicate with them by video or call and it is solved.

The skype translator option is very useful to communicate with other people who speak another language and easily translate it to my language

What do you dislike?

to put the profile picture is not adjustable just charge the photo and the system puts it automatically fixed without being able to adjust it for one side or the other as I want it to look and if the photo is too big I have to manually minimize it so that it is just in the profile icon

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it is a very useful and good app that helps to have a complete communication

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

Previously, contacting us among the employees of the company was a little complicated now through Skype, we communicate without problems, either by voice or video, since it has a good quality of the two. It has been very useful to contact us without problems.

"Skype on any device"

What do you like best?

With Skype I can link it in any operating system of the computer or have it on any device you want such as cell phone, computer, tablet, Xbox one and even on the TV has many options to link something that gives me coverage anywhere

The communication with another person is totally free in call, video conference and chat only with internet and the other person can also do all this

What do you dislike?

To have a good operation of the app without suffering from poor quality or distorting the audio you must have a good internet or if this app can be a complete disaster that does not work at all and not work all the services offered

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

I use it a lot to be in contact with clients, users or colleagues, I use this app only for work I do not like to link my personal life with work, so I decided to take this app for work only since I know that when they write to me Skype is just work and it has worked for me not to mix labor relations with personal ones

"Free calls and much more"

What do you like best?

The option of being able to call another mobile phone directly from Skype by paying a plan is very low cost and it seems to me that it is cheaper to pay so I plan to another operator

The subtitles of support that appear on the screen is the best because sometimes communication is cut or you do not understand well what the other person is saying but with these subtitles help to follow the conversation without stopping it or ask again what was said

What do you dislike?

There are several pages that are made to resemble the original Skype so that it is downloaded and not the original one and when downloading the copy the computer or the mobile phone can become infected with viruses.

I can not block numbers that I do not want to have in my contact list or call my Skype number

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

It seems to me an app that besides helping in the communication of the working area is also useful for the sending of information and to be able to contact the clients more personally for the video calls

It is an app that not everyone uses but in the company we all use it to be the means of communication by which we contact all employees either by call or videoconference

"Skype has come a long way"

What do you like best?

As tool that is currently being used for my personal use, I can say that Skype has sure come a long way. With Cortana on hand, she makes it easy to schedule, remind, and make note of things you want her to and shes always ready so long as she is enabled. We are officially living in a world where we can confuse our virtual assistants. Who would have known? Between Cortana, Siri, Alexa, Google... anywho... Skype has sure evolved to fit into the trend of assistants which I am quite please with. I am glad that I can use this across a majority of my devices with ease. I only say majority because my Google home doesn't have a screen I can use that feature with. Overall the update with the fun images we can send, the video quality troubleshooting has all improved and I am quite pleased with it.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can complain about. It is pretty simple and the basic use of it hasn't changed over time. I am just grateful for the consistency in updates and video quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considering the growth of this platform, I would highly recommend for business implementation. Skype for Business is affordable as well.

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

No formal business problems yet, though I have used Skype for Business for the chat capability in companies before. I do though count on it for being able to see mom's face every week. so it's dependable for sure!

"A highly reliable and efficient source of multiple types of communication"

What do you like best?

Skype for companies is a wonderful collaboration platform. This is the platform where companies obtain benefits, when they allow expenses to be reduced and to provide their services. Skype is the surprising and useful product of Microsoft. As a result of using this software, I came to know that it not only provides services for calls, massages, exchange, etc. It also allows the user to achieve their work objectives. I really like to use all its features and functions, they are well developed and they are very easy to learn. There are many things that I like about Skype, like video calls and their high quality and solidity. It is also great that this product allows more than two hundred people to connect at the same time. It is an advanced and positive platform for all. Even software is not good, your customer service is also professional and responsive

What do you dislike?

Skype has been in my use for 2 years now and we have created a professional link. As most of the time, I am completely dependent on this tool for professional communication. At the moment, I have not encountered any major problems, except for the fact that file sharing is not as reliable in this tool. Either it disappears from the chat box or it can not handle large volume files

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend this software to my friends and other colleagues. It is very easy to install and use. The basic version is free to use and is open source so that beginners can try to use it and enjoy advanced functions

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

The broad and robust community of Skype users speaks for itself and about the success of the Skype tool. Continuous improvement and easy-to-use experience is what keeps us continuously involved with this productive and practical tool.

"Contact with your friends without a Sim Card"

What do you like best?

The best part of the Skype is making video calls or texting to your friends with internet network. When I was abroad , I easily communicated with my family and friends by using Skype. All you need is to have an internet connection. With Internet connection , you do not have to buy a sim card.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes , the app does not work properly when there is low internet connection. For underdeveloped areas , the Skype can make updates and optimization to ensure connection between people. Moreover , the group chat in Skype may be challenging some times. Thus , there could be optimizations for the low connection of internet.

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

If there needs to be an urgent meeting , we can easily open a team chat in Skype. We can also open video chat with number of people. Therefore , we dont have to gather in a same place to make an urgent meeting.

"A classic video chat software"

What do you like best?

Depending on the internet connection, the video chat capabilities are pretty good. It’s fantastic I can keep a conversation with people from every side of the world. I have kept fluid conversations with people from Asia, Europe and even Australia. It is definitely one of the classic video chat software on the market.

What do you dislike?

I honestly think the security of Skype is pretty weak, like there might be high possibilities of hacking. I think that’s the main reason why so many people choose other platforms instead of these one. Another thing is that chat history gets deleted after a certain point. It happened to me that I wanted to check some information from 2 year ago and it doesn’t exist anymore. I didn’t like this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Skype to users who are interested in creating meetings, with a single person or with several people. In general, this software is a good choice for meeting, from things as serious as calling clients to things more relaxed like talking to friends and family. Because Skype is extremely easy to install on various operating systems, it’s a great choice for small and medium size companies who require a decent meeting software.

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

Skype allows us to have contact with people through chat, call or video call. Giving its simpleness, it is very easy to use by almost anyone. In my company, we use it to follow up on the products we are intended to purchase, to communicate with Directors and Chiefs, between departments or with our costumers. I have even known of members of the team who uses it for entirely personal purposes, like talking to family or meeting people online.

"Skype has never disappointed in video conferencing with colleagues"

What do you like best?

Over the past three years, Skype has been my close assistant in communicating with workmates in remote areas. It is interesting how this video conferencing app transforms large geographical distances into a simple visit room. My supervisors are able to communicate business strategies in an effective way. Secondly, I like Skype because of the privacy that it gives people involved in conferencing. In the past, organizational communication was hard because we did not have Skype to facilitate the sharing of information. The sound and video chats are clear, and little cost is incurred in the form of Skype credits. Lastly, this video conferencing application is usable on most computers that have Microsoft operating system. The themes that are installed in Skype also make the use of the software interesting.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I dislike about Skype is the frequent disconnections that users in remote areas experience due to network coverage, and conversations have to be delayed. Moreover, some instances of network outrage make some received files inaccessible from the correct Skype directory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those that have not experienced the convenience of Skype, the app meets all organizational and personal needs. It is good to have a tool that enables video interaction across vast geographical distances.

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

Skype is solving communication problems in the company. Supervisors do not have to be physically present to give instructions to remote workers. Essential messages are also communicated in a timely manner.

"skype is best for communication my business"

What do you like best?

As I would like to think it is a phenomenal application. It is utilized all the more every now and again by a substantial number of individuals to associate with PCs or clients who live in removed spots. One can get to Skype effectively. Simple to download, introduce and use. It gives us a decent stage to hold gatherings with a few people in the meantime. Your video call is a standout amongst the most dominant and most critical capacities for everybody. It enables us to impart our screen to other individuals to share our information or private data that we would prefer not to partake in a product duplicate. For venture the executives demonstrates that there is nothing with the exception of this software.It could be said that it is the most essential coordinated effort apparatus we have in the organization amid the years that we work here. Expanded the productivity everything being equal and the capacity to achieve our colleagues in various nations and workplaces. It has been an ideal and valuable correspondence programming for organizations everything being equal and for all ventures. It is an office stage independent from anyone else.

What do you dislike?

To the extent I'm worried, with this community oriented programming. It is a superior alternative than alternate apparatuses accessible in the market, since its connection of grievances is low and works great. As I am a successive client of this item, I nearly don't need to discover any issue when utilizing this wellspring of joint effort. A minor issue that occasionally emerges is that when I send a voice message, the message vanishes in my visit room, however the individual to whom I sent it gets it. It's an unusual thing It happened 5 to multiple times, however it is anything but a major issue. I attempt, could be my web issue or association mistake. All things considered, I'm happy with you Skype.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best, exemplary, least complex informing application and sound/video call. Exceedingly prescribed.

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

It keeps me imparted on occasion when I can not be available at my work environment, in this manner keeping up a moment and powerful correspondence without being available, in addition to it has encouraged correspondence with customers and providers who are out of the nation.

"Fuss-free and reliable video con-call tool"

What do you like best?

The ability to make phone calls, as long as you have internet access. Makes it so easy and convenient for me and my colleagues to discuss when we are all over the world for business meetings. Fees are minimal and affordable. Interface is clean and simple and "idiot-proof". Video calls are crystal clear most of the time and voice call is almost just like the normal phone calls. I like it that we are able to hold multiple parties conference calls and everyone can be engaged. Unlike many other software, only two person can video call to one another.

What do you dislike?

something i do not like is the articles i have read about security vulnerabilities on the software. i am unsure if they have been fixed, but they are worrisome. in recent years, internet security is one of the main concerns and i feel that it should be addressed.

skype is an unexpensive tool which you can make use of to communicate with overseas counterparts. in this day and age, all computers (on windows platform) comes pre-installed with skype. it is one of the most "idiot-proof" software to use. on top of that, the good quality videos and voice calls makes it the best tool for any companies.

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

as we are mostly travelling, skype is our best companion when we need to hold emergency meetings or discussions. it is certainly easier than having to fly all the way down for a short 1hour meeting. also, it is much easier compared to trying to put your point across in texts or emails.

"Skype is easy"

What do you like best?

Skype is a very useful app that helps me to communicate with those people I need

I started using Skype and it has made me very useful for my business or meetings that I have to attend in addition to being very easy to use

The platform is very simple and everything is well specified and has everything very well ordered

What do you dislike?

Really images or emojis are slow to load at the time that is in the chat

I just think that it has a lot to do with improving the app although the latest updates have entered more useful things

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can say that it is a good communication and sending documents app is something different from the popular app

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

interacts more with people by being able to make a video call or just call via Skype

You can also send documents through Skype

"An Excellent Tool for Connecting to Others"

What do you like best?

The connection to others, as obvious as that answer may seem, is actually the best part of this tool. You need to speak to people, but you're busy or separated by distance. Boom - Skype comes in to help you save the day. In terms of tools within Skype itself, I use and like the chat function the best.

What do you dislike?

I am not sure it is so much that I dislike something, but I am always uncomfortable with the idea of syncing contacts with a service - even Skype. It might be irrational because every single action we complete now happens in the cloud. I trust Skype - do not get me wrong. I can use the tool without syncing, of course. But for others that may also be uncomfortable with this type of syncing, it is important to know that it is a recommended step when you register for the service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're going to use Skype, absolutely take advantage of the chat function!

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

Because I teach but am not always able to hold on-site office hours, this allows me to meet with students without the pressure of commuting to the main campus.

"Just a good software for video communication"

What do you like best?

The instant message feature is solid, fast and it has some fun emojis. It’s very accessible and easy to access, all you need is a Microsoft account and you can start using it. Video calls and audio have a good quality, it performs very well. The ability to share files instantly over the same platform makes it even more useful when it comes to analyze work.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, is not one of the best software to be used for video communication. I think Skype needs to do something to stay relevant among the competition. Maybe an improvement would be to make a connection with another relevant app, like Facebook, snapchat or google+. This would give Skype more visibility

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software can be a great solution if you know how to take advantage of it, because it will allow you to maintain a nice conversation, with a decent quality of video and audio. However, beware of issues when your device has poor signal. In that particular case, I would recommend to use chat only and avoid video chat and even calls, because it can get really annoying.

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

Skype has been used in my company for communication with members who are not physically there. The uses we give to this software are almost countless: consultations, collaborations, interviews and many others. This software is a great tool to have for face to face communication with one person and even a small group.

"Keep communicating always with yours with Skype, it's the best"

What do you like best?

Skype is an excellent tool for daily use either personally or professionally, I can make calls or video conferences and keep in touch with friends, family or clients, the most innovative of this software is that it can make you present in a single site No need to move to it, you can do meetings from the comfort of your home, or you can say hello to friends or family that are a few kilometers away.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to access it from the browser without needing to download it and the audio of the video conferences or video calls is distorted a bit as the connection becomes slow

Recommendations to others considering the product

download both on your computer and your cell phone, with it you can make or receive video calls from both devices or whatever of your choice

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

I can make business meetings with clients or potential clients without the need to attend a meeting point, I only make a video call and it is like having the person present on that site.

"Keep fluid conversations with Skype"

What do you like best?

The chat from Skype is excellent, keeping the classic environment from Microsoft Messenger. It allows me to have a fluid and solid communication with my co-workers and clients. The video calls are great, but only if you have access to a WiFi connection or a very good data signal. With this, you will assure that the message gets to hear loud and clear.

What do you dislike?

Skype if one of those classic platforms when it comes to maintain live communication, but at the moment there are so many other platforms doing the same thing (GoToMeeting, Zoom, etc) and sometimes doing it better, that Skype is going to have to do something that differentiates it from the rest. Now, even if the video quality is great, the service and connection issues are a common issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend it for video communication with one person, however, it does get stuck when it comes to video chat with multiple people. In those cases, I would recommend another platform that offers better service, like GoToMeeting and Zoom. Nevertheless, it still works well when it comes to simple meeting.

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

In our organization, we use Skype as a collaboration to our researchers, employees and clients who work in different cities or different countries. This software allows us to keep a conversation with each other, either via video chat or audio, and, if we wish to show the work that has been done on the computer, we have a screen sharing option on Skype.

"Great interface but a bit invasive to the system"

What do you like best?

Easy to use interface and nicely designed GUI. Sounds and interactions with the program are distinctive of the Brand- and the ability to share desktops are my favorite things this program has to offer. The new interface reminds me of the old msn days where you have a list of saved contacts and you constantly see whether they are logged in or out- regardless if theres a meeting pending or not.

What do you dislike?

The program has always been very invasive towards the operating system in regards to how you have to close it multiple times in order for it to actually close once and for all. When you set it up to load during startup on most Windows computers on my working environment, it usually slows down the computer a lot. When people close it, it forcefully minimize and you have to sometimes close it in the task manager.

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

It slows down the process of turning the computer up and booting the system when it loads with Windows. People need to reconfigure in msconfig to order it to not boot with the system.

The benefits are that most employees learn to use it fast.

The only bad thing that I have to say is if you do not have a faster internet conection, you probably will have a low quality while you are doing a videocall with someone.
