" Excellent Communication and Productivity tool"

What do you like best?

Skype is perfect for communicating, sharing and keeping your contacts agenda well organized.

The tool is widely used world-wide which facilitates its use with main means of communication, whether for sending messages, conducting conferences, audio connections, etc.

The file transfer option supports almost all types of files and keeps them organized in a specific folder easy to find when needed.

The latest updates brought important features such as settings that indicate incoming and outgoing messages, notification settings, and alerts.

What do you dislike?

I realize that the updates are constant, which I believe is to improve aspects about the user experience, performance and security, but with each new update the system seems to be reinstalled again recreating the support icons, and sometimes the appearance and location of some options change, increasing the learning time in the new version

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Skype for any person or company, deliver what promises and meets user expectations well. The quality of audio and video are good, since one must take into consideration the speed of connection on both sides. It has a good team of support and documentation, generating more trust in the implementation and use of the tool for all.

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

Fast and efficient communication, contact management and scheduling of audio and video conferences. Optimizes everyone's time on the team.

"skype a great tool for daily use among our team"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Skype is the group communication that has video calls with several people, has a great facility to receive customer calls anywhere thanks to its mobile application quickly, notifications even before reaching the corresponding work area for delays or external inconvenience.

What do you dislike?

It is incredible the fact that the Skype program for the pc is slower than its mobile version, sometimes takes quite a while to load, and does not have updates that help us to continue trusting that this application will continue to grow, usually has purely aesthetic changes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skype can help explain doubts that customers weren't clear about at first, a chat that can encourage a group of people looking for a service to choose you, where you highlight the benefits of working with you rather than sending them by mail, where it's possible that less than half in that video call will read it.

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

The communication by Skype is faster than the answer by post, at the time of an explanation of the service, clients who have wanted to contact us for a more elaborate work; detailed and personal, they do not explain how they would like by mail; something is understood with a slight difference, but not what they want, with Skype calls they have even been able to show us drafts of designs of what they want, explain details of that work, solve questions on the part of both that were confused and at the same time new while the one we were talking about was concreted.

"Communication at your fingertips with skype"

What do you like best?

1. It has in built screen sharing option.

2 . It is available on all the platforms like Android, Linux, Windows, MacOS and IOS

What do you dislike?

1. The sound quality of skype depends on bandwidth of your network

2. It has a high ram usage.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skype is one of the best social tool in the market. As this tool is backed up by one of the IT giant Microsoft, you don't have to worry about your data theft and attackers. The user interface of the product is really neat and clean. On the left side you will find all the contacts and on right side is your conversation. The skype also has undo send button so that if you send a message by mistake, you can undo it right away.

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

As skype is available on all the platform, so i don't have to worry about my chat synchronization. I use skype daily for my meetings with clients. Through skype I can send message while being in the call, can make audio calls and schedule a conference calls. Skype is free tool to use and easy to install.

"Tool with good integration with mobile phones."

What do you like best?

For a long time I have been using Skype, and the truth is that it is a very useful and complete tool. One of the features that I like most and has called my attention to this platform, is that it allows you to make phone calls without needing to be another Skype user, that is, I can buy credits and make phone calls anywhere in the world, the price This depends on which place it is called. But it is a great option since you do not need an excellent internet connection to have a high quality voice call. The truth is that since I met this option has been quite useful.

What do you dislike?

Although Skype has been a great platform that I have used since the last few years, I do not think it is very safe to share files through it, since the chat window may disappear and apparently also has no reach with large files. size. Despite this, I still use this tool a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With Skype I have been able to keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues regardless of the place. The truth is that most people now know Skype, and if you have not done so, I recommend you do it, since it is a great means of communication today. It even offers a Business version that adapts to all types of companies.

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

Skype is an excellent tool used by many users over the years. And I can assure you that many have perceived benefits from this. Personal Skype has been my ally to keep in touch and aware of everything that may happen in my life in my work and family, since from anywhere I can be in contact with whoever you want.

"It's very affordable and easy to use. "

What do you like best?

Skype has tweaked its interface over the years. The current version is clean and simple, with your user picture and a search box at top left. Below these are four buttons for Home, Call Phones, Create Conversation, and a new one for Add Bots. Below that is your contact list, with Favorites on top. You can handily switch to show recent conversations, and you can choose to show only those currently online. Clicking anything in the list opens the most recent activity for the contact or group in the large central area of the window. This changes to a keypad when you tap the Call Phones button. Home view simply shows the most recent profile and status updates from your contacts.

You can set your status from your user pic: Choices include Online, Away, Do Not Disturb, Invisible, and Offline. Skype installs an icon in Window's notification area (formerly called the system tray) from which you can set your status, open the app, or sign off. This icon shows a number if you have unanswered calls. It also pops up notifications when contacts come online or for other events you can choose in Settings. Skype offers nice integration with Windows 10's Action Center notifications: You can even reply to messages inside the notification—something not possible with Hangouts, though ViberFree at Viber Media does offer this ability.

What do you dislike?

I was glad when I discovered Skype decades ago. However, after Microsoft purchased it from the 2 guys in Luxembourg, the human customer service, prices and connection service stopped 99%! Today, Skype is stealing our money and this goes as a warning to all of you users! It looks like Microsoft has become a service for the rich corporate people who have so much money that they do not care about being scam maybe because in their tax returns there is a way for them to to recuperate that stolen money and get maybe even much more... since their tax returns are hidden from us and they have their own lawyers to take care of their bad deeds. So, I warn you. If you feel like continue using Skype and maybe lose less money...Never give to them your banking credit cards!!! Get a credit card that you can charge with only the amount you need, to use Skype, at Walmart or try to find another application! Good luck to you!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

One of the cooler Skype features is the ability to set up a Skype Number. This is really no different from a regular phone number. People can call it from their mobiles and landlines, but you answer in Skype, whether it's running on the desktop or a mobile app. Skype really isn't a full-fledged VoIP service unless you activate this feature.

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

Video calling is Skype's bread and butter. It's what people usually mean when they say they're going to Skype you. The service has offered good voice and video quality for many years, using proprietary codecs for increased clarity. As with any IP audio and video communication, though, your call quality depends on both parties' Internet connection speeds, so you may experience occasional frame drops or voice glitches, as we did during testing. In general, Skype looks and sounds as good as you can get from IP communication, though Apple's FaceTime usually looks better. Google Hangouts seems to have equaled Skype, though I have yet to test that with more than a one-to-one video call.

Una de las pocas cosas que no me ha gustado de esta aplicacion ha sido que las llamadas a telefonos fijos se cobran,al igual que el buzon de voz.

En algunos de los casos ha habido mala resolucion, pero ha sido en poco de los casos.

"One of the best app for chatting and video calling"

What do you like best?

We are using Skype to have internal chat with our team members and to have video conference with the clients when needed. Skype is the best tool to video chat, share screen and to send files via chat. All the needed functionalities are there in Skype to engage with the clients and team members. The most important feature is that Skype wont hang or will not drop the calls on good internet connectivity.

What do you dislike?

The major problem is with the pricing, with Microsoft acquisition the pricing have increased. Kindly reduce the pricing so that every startup can use the application. Also it could be nice if you can bring integrations with slack too so that we can use only one platform for the project management.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A great tool to chat, share screen, video call with clients and team members. Always up and never hangs in between calls.

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

We are using Skype to chat with our team members and clients. For video presentations to the client we rely on Skype and it never let us down. A great tool to engage with the team members and to get work done in time.

"Skype the perfect tool for everyone's communication"

What do you like best?

Skype is a very useful application that allows me to communicate with my family and friends anywhere in the world through calls, videoconferences and instant messaging. I like it because you can share with them the file or the information for free, which is the best for our economy and offers me at no cost. I can use it in a group way talking with several family and friends in a video conference, all at the same time.

What do you dislike?

Really with the last update implemented, the topic "add contacts" has become visually confusing, especially in the mobile version, similarly, when you are in a video conference with more than 3 people at a time, the program usually collapses and slows down cellphone.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skype is the best software of its kind that works perfectly like a telephone and a video conference software, if you are looking for a platform that allows you to communicate through chats of texts, voice and even HD videos with family, friends or clients and partners of your company and not only that but that people who live on the other side of the world, then this software is the solution.

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

Skype is the best software to perform the video conferences we need and thus communicate among customers and partners, in addition the managers of the area where I work, require a lot of software to perform remote assistance is a very complete program, in which all benefit .

"Great for video conferencing especially overseas"

What do you like best?

The price is free if both people have Skype and a minimal fee if you need to call someone in another country. You can easily had credits to make the call. The quality of the calls is normally very good.

What do you dislike?

Since Microsoft bought out Skype, there are times it won't recognize my email address as being valid and it wants to set me up with another account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Considering the price is free, I would definitely try it. I recommend it to my exchange students when we are in Germany and they need to call their family in the USA. Both parties need to have Skype accounts to use the Video conferencing feature but you can call any phone number (landline or mobile) from your Skype account for a few pennies per minute.

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

When I need to talk to my partner teacher overseas, I can quickly make a call anytime she has her cell phone with her. We don't have to match up our teaching schedules since there is a 6 hour time difference between us.

"Excellent tool to chat and make video calls with friends, colleagues and family."

What do you like best?

I like Skype, for a long time I use this communication platform that despite some flaws I consider it a great option for the communication of the current world.

With Skype I can chat with my colleagues, friends and with my family, really with whom I want to have a Skype account. I also like that the chat offers fun emojis that make a conversation more dynamic and fun. Also allows you to make video calls to any place you want at the time you want, this option I like a lot because if I leave the city for some reason I can be in contact with whoever wants without any problem, although for this I must have a good internet communication .

What do you dislike?

I have experimented with Skype that in certain opportunities when I use the chat and send a msj to another user, this may take a long time to arrive and vise, which is a flaw that must be corrected because this prevents having a fluent conversation. It also happened to me that in the screen sharing option you can hang up.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skype offers excellent service that helps us save time and money, meets most of the user's requirements and also has a clear and easy to use interface, I really know very few people who have not used this platform at the moment, since it is very useful and known worldwide.

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

Skype is a great communication option for companies since this platform can be used in the browser, that is, it does not generate expenses in connection with the installation of any software on all employees' PCs and also avoid the expense that can be incurred. generate in maintenance. Skype is effective and easy to use, making it a great ally to communicate on and off the job.

"Skype for companies is excellent for collaboration at work!."

What do you like best?

We have been using this tool in our organization for almost 3 years and it is the best option for us to hold conference meetings since our entire team is all over the world, connecting us from five different locations. We also use this platform to conduct interviews for potential candidates in different locations. I can highlight some of the advantages that I love one of them are: Skype is easy and fast to install, Skype calls have a high sound quality and are highly secure, Skype works on most computers: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Pocket Out. 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

What do you dislike?

There are not many things that I do not like about Skype for companies. However, after carefully examining the software, here are some of the problems I have faced: NO PERSONALIZATION: I believe that Skype users should be able to have a wide variety of topics to choose from. My argument is: if Skype for personal use has it, why not Skype for companies? Giving professional users the freedom to customize a bit could probably break the monotony of a tight schedule and increase productivity in the long term. Or maybe that's just me

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend skyper is the maximum since we use it we have changed life is easy, lightly no complication I love it and it's free.

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

Exceptional software through which we can organize conferences, meetings through high quality live video calls and much more. we change life to use everything is easier.THE LOWER LINE: Skype for Business is a revolutionary application that includes conference tools, chat clients, remote access, etc. They can meet all your communication needs. NOTE: If you are looking for a complete VoIP service, you may want to look elsewhere

"Join the wagon, Skype is the way to go."

What do you like best?

Video conferencing has to be my favourite because it simplifies work as we don't have to hold physical meetings when we have Skype because it is more or less a face to face conversation meaning I can even hold online interviews for brand ambassadors for projects.

I also like it because sharing files is also made possible and fast which is convenient when it comes to sharing ideas with team members through the group chats.

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular to be quite honest, I'm enjoying the ride and I can't wait to see what he updated features as time goes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As a team leader Skype has changes the game, totally. So I would recommend it because it is the best at video conferencing which is what every business has embedded in the system and you don't want to be left out.

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

Sharing files as well as having meetings. That has been a hustle for quite a while moving around looking for venues and finding an appropriate time that suits both parties was a problem but all thanks to Skype online meetings are my go to regardless of the distance.

"Skype review"

What do you like best?

The main reason i like Skype is because everybody else is available on Skype and that makes it easy for me to connect with many people from any location in the world.

The software was much better with the instant messaging ,voice call and video conferencing i liked the update that introduced the emogies and stickers.The application also had new features that enabled call sheduling.

What do you dislike?

I hate the way this software consumes my computer memory and therefore requires a computer with higher memory capacity.The interface is somehow wanting and the consistency is quite poor.

The application is also a bit slow in sending instant messages as compared to some messaging apps.It r does not also open emojis much faster and therefore takes long to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend it due to the high number of users using the application an that makes it easy to connect with people globally.

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

I used the software for video conferencing

"Skype - Great solution for video conferencing."

What do you like best?

Skype is one of the most popular voice announcements. Skype allows us to have both voice and text conversations so this solution can be used not only to provoke video conferences with business partners but also to chat with friends. Skype is quite a powerful tool and still being developed one of the advantages, which I liked very much, is the ability to translate live news, so we can contact the client in his native language. Skype also allows us to share a screen, which is a very useful feature, while the other person wants to show us something that happens on his monitor, for example, when remotely helping to solve technical problems or showing projects. It is worth mentioning that Skype enables us to make cheap phone calls.

What do you dislike?

One of the disadvantages for some users can be undoubtedly problems with finding friends and the fact that the stability of the conversation is dependent on the quality of connection.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quality of video and sound is perfect and gives us great experience of visual communication.

What do you dislike?

Skype is an online tool for communication so it requires a strong internet connection for work perfectly. Language translation option is not available in this tool which creates problems while communicating with people with different languages. Sometimes video call quality goes very poor and call disconnected automatically and hang the display. Skype to Skype calling is free but we can also make landline calls to others by purchasing credit which is bit expensive.

"herramienta perfecta para la comunicación entre las personas"

What do you like best?

La facilidad de comunicarse con la gente a través de la red. La capacidad de enviar archivos también es útil. Muy fácil de usar. También funciona como un teléfono IP, así que no sólo puedes hablar con otros usuarios de Skype, sino también comprar créditos y llamar a todos los números de teléfono del mundo. Skype siempre ha sido mi primera opción cuando se trata de conectarme o viajar con mis colegas o amigos. Fácil de descargar, instalar y usar. Nos da una buena plataforma para mantener reuniones con varias personas al mismo tiempo. Su videollamada es una de las características más potentes y eso es lo más importante para todos también como que tienen un plan para llamadas ilimitadas a números internacionales de manera muy económica, me permite contactar a personas en cualquier parte del mundo de una manera muy fácil y rápida

What do you dislike?

Una desventaja de Skype es que como está conectado a Internet, las llamadas a veces se caen o suenan borrosas. También he tenido problemas con Skype para la congelación de empresas. Cuando eso sucede, es difícil enviar mensajes porque no pasan o no responden a las llamadas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo skype por que es un servicio excelent para comunicarse con familiares.

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

Skype me ha ayudado a organizar mi trabajo, puedo comunicarme con mis colegas sin restricciones, puedo hacer una llamada de audio o videollamada y no tengo problemas, skype tampoco consume mucha Internet, pero si se ralentiza un poco de video, skype tiene mucho potencial y sus muchas funciones incluso sin explorar un gran programa con futuro.

"Skype: The easiest way to communicate with more people."

What do you like best?

Skype works excellent, I love this software, I can call any of my friends or family from my cell phone or computer no matter where in the world it is. Actually this tool is very useful, I like that I can maintain a constant communication with my clients and suppliers through this tool.

Another thing that I like is that it is very easy to use, this platform has a very intuitive interface, I really like the colors and the typeface it has. Also, I like that I can make international calls with the call plan to landline and mobile phones.

It is a useful and necessary application for me.

What do you dislike?

I do not like Skype that sometimes it takes a long time to start the session, it has happened to me that I urgently need to check some chat and it takes a lot of time to start the session from another device. They have a very good level of security but it is somewhat slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation is that they do not store really important information in Skype chats, since this platform sometimes deletes chats automatically.

I also recommend setting an external microphone to have better audio quality in the calls.

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

Skype has been very useful for my company, I have used it daily to maintain contact with my colleagues, customers and suppliers. This is really good since I maintain a closer connection with my clients, in this way I increase more sales and improve my customer service.

"Skype is the ultimate software for internal communication."

What do you like best?

I really enjoy using the video conferencing, its my favourite feature for that matter. I feel like I am having a face to face conversation with my members which works for me, but direct messaging is not that bad thought at times it can be monotonous but its nice to have an alternative to switch with every now and then.

What do you dislike?

Probably having a good internet connection would be a drawback which can be handled.

The credit required to make calls would also be regarded as a weight on ones shoulders but it is very affordable for sure.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You never know who good something is until you try it and Skype is worth it for sure.

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

Implementing the ideas discussed as a team is majorly aided by Skype because sharing of file ms concerning a project is very easy.

I have always had an issue with communicating with the individuals in my team so with Skype it is more of a face to face conversation rather than communication via a screen of a laptop for example. I am able into call my team members to a meeting regardless of the distance.

"The communication tool of the future."

What do you like best?

Skype really is excellent, I love this platform, it allows me to communicate constantly with my friends and coworkers. This tool also allows me to make video calls from any device that has an internet connection.

I really like that I can also share multimedia files in the chats. I can also create groups to share with more people.

I believe that this platform will be the best way to communicate, also allows you to buy a plan for calls to landline and mobile phones, in this way I can communicate with anyone anywhere in the world.

What do you dislike?

It is very difficult to look for any defect in this platform since its functionality is excellent, but the only thing I do not like is that sometimes the multimedia files are not sent in groups, it has happened a couple of times that I send an important file to a group and some people receive it and others do not. I really do not understand why that happens. They should improve this, but the rest works excellent.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My most sincere recommendation is that they have a good internet connection when they use Skype to make calls or video calls, since this platform needs to have an optimal connection to work properly.

I also recommend using the unlimited calling plan, since it is much cheaper than any other international call plan from any phone provider.

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

This tool has become a daily necessity in my company, has contributed a lot of value and has been of great help to my organization. Since it allows me to be in constant contact with my employees, I can sometimes make video conferences with them from anywhere in the world.

The plan calls to landlines and cell phones works excellent, to use this plan I can call anyone from anywhere in the world, plus the plan you buy is unlimited, this platform is really helpful.

What do you like best?

I really like the video conferencing feature that Skype has because it is more or less like a face to face conversation that is great at having professional meetings from different parts and that should be a reason to cancel a good deal.

I also like it because it can be used on any device be it mobile phones, laptops it is a great one for sure.

For real, Skype has served me well and the features are just amazing I can't seem to find anything I would regard a drawback I really like it, apart from the fact that a good internet connection is needed.

"Let's skype"

What do you like best?

I like its growth over the years and the communication features it offers. With Skype you can message, make audio calls, video calls and share screens . Skype is excellent for both business and personal use and it's paid services are relatively cheap. Via Skype you can also send files. Skype still rules over the years.

What do you dislike?

Skype video quality depends on bandwidth available. For a quality stable video chat or conferencing it requires a stable internet connection on both ends. Skype should also not be considered as an option in times of emergency..

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When offering remote IT assistance or when I need to connect to a remote computer on a different branch I always ask users to download it because it's efficient and effective. It's easy to install, use and guarantees some level of security. Use it.

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

Making international audio and video calls was made possible with Skype. It's affordable and saves us traveling time and costs. File sharing and screen sharing is also a great thing. We can solve remote IT assistance with ease.

"Video Conferencing made easy"

What do you like best?

Easy to connect with people across the globe. I used to face difficulties to connect with people over video conferencing. Skype made it very easy to connect hassle-free because all you have to do is just login with your email ID & add as many people as you want to video chat with. No cost is to be paid to avail the services.

What do you dislike?

I used to dislike a feature that was not allowing me to log in without a Microsoft ID. That might be a part of research because later I was able to log in with my non-Microsoft ID. Additionally, I cannot add my own emoji to send occasionally.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Allow the application to get integrated with other application such that calendar or events can be seen right there without opening any other application. I understand it needs API integration, but the developers may be able to find a solution to it. This way Skype would become a one-stop shop for almost everything. Also, keep adding the recent features that other applications implement.

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

Screen sharing without having pre-scheduled links, instant file transfer, group forming. You may create different groups based on the teams you would interact with. Also, broadcast your messages to the groups you want. You may retrieve the information you want that is available. Tag status change of any contact to see when they go offline or be available to avoid any probable delay in business communication.

"Skype, very cool app!"

What do you like best?

The main function of Skype is communication. Your family and friends, your work colleagues or clients, you can always be in touch with them! The application is free, provided that you do not call mobile numbers, but despite this, Skype has advantageous tariff plans, if necessary, they can be used. I also like the ability to create video conferences, you can add two, three or even 10 people , it is very convenient. You can also show your interlocutor your screen, this is a useful feature, especially if you want to show everything clearly. In addition to this, Skype has many useful features, such as file sharing or text chat.

What do you dislike?

I'm completely satisfied with this application. If we are talking about the computer version, but the version for the mobile device is very poorly optimized and not convenient to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very good product, I definitely advise Skype. It meets all the requirements for productive work.

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

I work as a consultant, so I often have to communicate with my clients directly on Skype, it is very convenient when you can solve all important issues remotely. I also use Skype to communicate with my work colleagues.
