The thing I like most about Skype is its user-friendliness. The app's interface is simple and clear enough for everyone to understand. Basically, Skype is accessible through PCs, tablets, and smartphones. Which mean you can converse and hold a meeting with anyone while you're on the move.
Also, Skype's translator bot is an amazing feature to mention. I work a lot with clients from different parts of the world. And sometimes there's always a language barrier. However, the translator fixes that issue by acting as a two-way translator. That way we can both converse in languages that we are more comfortable with. Amazing, right?
In a nutshell, Skype is great because it is:
* Easy to use.
* Usable on multiple platforms.
* Internationally accessible.
* They have unnecessarily high fees for their paid version of the service.
* Skype's free version is very simple and limited which means you may not be able to enjoy some of its best-selling features.
If you have long-distant clients/family/friends, Skype is one of the easiest ways to connect with them. And, on the plus side, you don't have to pay a dime to use Skype. However, to fully unlock the app's features and functionalities, you should opt for the paid version.
The key benefit of using Skype is that it connects you to people far from you. I use the app to communicate with my clients and business associates with ease. Also, thanks to their translation bot, communicating with foreign clients becomes even easier.
