"Awesome tool for quick, intra-business communication"

What do you like best?

I love Skype for its most basic function: IM. I've used it for video conferencing, web conferencing, file sharing and more, but as I've moved on to other services for those things, I'll always come to Skype for communicating with fellow workers. Sometimes you need an answer faster than a phone call or email can give you, and Skype offers that level of immediacy.

What do you dislike?

Communication is Skype's primary function, and it excels. Through no fault of its own, however, it lacks a lot of the flexibility that other communication services provide. File sharing can get problematic and we've had multiple issues with trying to host conferences with people outside the company. Again, I can't really blame Skype for this. Much of the time it's affected by the network of someone/everyone in the party.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skype is a great, free tool for communicating within your business. Faster and more efficient than email, and allows instantaneous feedback. There are plenty of options that we don't even take advantage of here. Don't write off this excellent tool until you've had time to explore all the areas it can help with.

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

We use Skype to quickly and efficiently communicate with each other, and to send each other files/media used in our marketing projects and campaigns. Sometimes it takes a bit longer to upload, but I've noticed delivery of assets is a bit faster overall. When you don't have time to wait on an email response, and you can't get through by phone, Skype is an excellent option.

"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.

"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:

If you are looking for communicator that will allow you to make video conferences or video calls, you should consider using Skype for this purpose, especially since it is available for free.

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

By using Skype, I can communicate with customers and team members/peer peers.

Skype is one of the best tool for telecommunication and it has all the basic features for visual communication. Skype is mostly use for video calling which is very effective for our business, we can attend our live meetings and make conferences via Skype. File sharing is another incredible feature of this tool which allows us to share any format of file to other colleagues and we can work together on same project. 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.

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

Skype is one of the most efficient tool for visual communication and it has all the basic abilities to fulfill all the needs for visual communication. We can make video and audio calls with high quality and share files to any other person easily via attachments.

It’s also very helpful for our personal life and keep us connected with our friends and families.

"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.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

By and by I truly like Skype in light of the fact that is the most helpful method for correspondence since land remove is certainly not a downside in any case. I prescribe it to all people who mean to make their work environment a fun one.

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

Task arranging has been extraordinary on the grounds that the groups associated with the undertaking we can cooperative together through the phone calls which is advantageous in light of the fact that we don't need to spending plan for physical gatherings.

"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.

I really like the fact that there are no other changes apart from a good internet connection, credit which is very convenient to all. I really like a software that help me save my coins and that is what Skype does no extra charges, no other expenses. Honestly I like it a lot.

Video conferencing is my beat feature basically it means I can have a face to face conversation with my bosses, with my team members regardless of the distance and that saves me a lot of travel expenses and reserving restaurants because I'm all about saving to be quite honest.

What do you dislike?

I have had the best experience with Skype and so far I'm enjoying the services, I haven't encountered a drawback feature, it all good.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is the best deal on the table to be quite honest. Getting good softwares for video conferencing and what not nowadays is a hustle and Skype is the best in the market according to me. Everyone should give it a try.

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

Sharing of files concerning the different projects has been made possible with Skype. Earlier sharing huge files was a problem but right now I have no trouble with that.

Communication us also at breeze with Skype because we usually have group chats together with my team members on how to execute different tasks this days increased our productivity for sure.

"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.

"Skype is the way to go"

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.

What do you dislike?

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Personally I really like Skype because is the most convenient way of communication since geographical distance is not a drawback nonetheless. I recommend it to all individuals who intend to make their workplace a fun one.

Project planning has been great because the teams involved in the project we are able to commune together through the conference calls which is convenient because we don't have to budget for physical meetings.

"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.

Skype has reduced my need to travel around to meet some of my clients,clients tend to trust video call rather than traditional phone call.this has greatly reduced transport cost this translates to increased profits.

Skype has greatly increased the number of clients i deal with because i don't necessarily have to meet each of them physically,In any single day i can communicate with double the number of clients as compared to when i would have to meet them

"Great for business and personal use"

What do you like best?

I use Skype for both business and personal uses, and I am in love with it. Skype gives its users the ability to have conference calls via audio or video. It also allows for messaging with chatting capabilities and many great features for its calling for its users. You can even get your own phone number associated with your Skype account so that you can use that as your business number and not have to give out your personal number.

What do you dislike?

I cannot think of anything that I dislike about this software, I have no complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking to achieve better communication with your employees and make meetings and conference calls more convenient, than Skype is a product that you should definitely consider.

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

Communication problems. Users can have a phone number that is associated with their Skype account in which they are able to be contacted and for employees that may not know their number, they can be searched via their email. It allows more privacy for our employees. Also, meetings and conference calls can be done virtually with the amazing features.

"Basic form of functions"

What do you like best?

Its operation is very easy from the beginning that the download seemed very easy to use apart from all the features that are very useful for any time where you want to communicate with others either by audio or video

 

It does not have a fixed monetary value if I want to pay a plan I do it and if I do not want to I use it in free mode that allows me to use it without any problem

All its functions are quick and useful, I have used them all that help me for my work to be communicated with everyone at all times

What do you dislike?

Their functions are good and against that I have nothing to say, the only thing I see that is not well done is to put the photo of peril because it does not let it fit as I want it to focus on the circle allowed, if it is a very large photo it is cut and it will not look good

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

I can have this app with me at all times, when I need to always communicate with me for the ease that fits any device and its ease of use allowed me to adapt very well to it in a short time

"Works great for quick 1-1 and group chats"

What do you like best?

Can react with emoji now on the web app, I think previously I could only do that on the phone app... not to mention all the animating emoji!

What do you dislike?

I remember when the new version became available that I opted to stay on the older version because the notification system seemed to be better, but I think that's all resolved now. I also only use it to stay in touch with a small number (about half a dozen) people, I don't know if it would handle a very large team of people as well as other apps like Slack or Google Chat.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I leave it open as a (pinned) tab in my browser and it alerts me to when there are new messages by changing the icon.

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

Works great to connect with partners and others outside the company that are using Skype, without having to bother about access/permissions to other apps like Slack or Google Chat, at a much faster speed than relying on email.

"skype excellent instant messaging "

What do you like best?

It is very easy and simple to use, it allows me to talk with my colleagues from any part of the world through video calls and it works with most of the equipment. It allows our employees to share screens with each other to ask for help. can share with our manager when they have a question

What do you dislike?

The bad thing about Skpype is that to call landlines you have to pay for voicemail is not free and, sometimes, the resolution of sound and video is bad.skype can be a hassle if you own a large group, you must plan the call before starting the meeting, and sometimes presents some technical problems with the camera and the microphone

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

It has helped me a lot in my work, since I can communicate with my colleagues through a videoconference from anywhere in the world, it has saved me a lot of money and time. I have been very useful in my company to hold conference meetings since our team is worldwide connecting from four different locations

"Skype is the ultimate pro."

What do you like best?

I really like video conferencing because my work as a project lead is a lot easier since I can still work when I'm at a great distance and together with my counterparts we push the project to best of our abilities all thanks to Skype.

Same case as for the group chat, that too is amazing and regarding sharing ideas, files regardless of the size I know Skype has my back and sending forms for the tasks assigned to the individuals in the team can have an online meeting which is awesome.

What do you dislike?

Quite frankly I have had the beat time while using Skype and I can wait to see other features that will be updated to make experiences with it a worth while.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Well personally it has been quite a ride, which I definitely have enjoyed and I would urge people to try it and see for themselves how much Skype can do, it is unimaginable it makes life so much easy I can testify.

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

Sharing of work content has been great all thanks to Skype since handling a project involves with the different persona in the team to make it a success therefore we go with Skype as a platform for sharing files and ideas of growing our ideas from grassroot.

Online meetings has been a lot fun since Skype is more or less having a face to face chat and that is awesome because it kills the boredom that comes with being on your work station replying mails

Skype does all that.

Skype is a very necessary program that we must have installed on our devices I love using Skype is a good program.

I always had a problem with skype that consumes too much the battery of the cell phones where I install it, I would like the program to consume less resources of the device where it is installed, it is not something that bothers me a lot because I know that these programs consume a lot of battery, but I would like them to do something to avoid this problem.

"Skype is a good program to make calls and video calls for free"

What do you like best?

Skype is an excellent program at home and at work I always use it to communicate with family and friends at work.

I like Skype because I can easily make calls and video calls for free, also the chat messaging system that is very entertaining and fun since it offers a number of emoticons and animated gifs that are very funny.

I also like that I can share files and links without problems and in a very easy way, Skype is a program that we should all use and the most important thing that is free.

What do you dislike?

a problem that I find in skype is that sometimes video calls are cut from nothing and it is a little annoying also sometimes the audio quality of the call is not very good, but few times this happens.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend the program because thanks to Skype we can communicate, offer calls and video calls for free, we can also transfer files between users.

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

At work there are many times I use Skype to communicate with my colleagues, I like that Skype at the company can conduct video conferences where the company's direct expose their views related to the work and strategies that they must be implemented in the company.

The program greatly benefits the company is very necessary to have it and the most important is very easy to use.

"Call without borders"

What do you like best?

Thanks to Skype I can connect to the world beyond the borders that the government of my country imposes on me.

While living in Venezuela, the limitations imposed by the government on international calls are something unbearable. Unless, of course, you use Skype.

Thanks to Skype I can make calls to the whole world paying some plans that are more than convenient, thanks to this life-saving software I can communicate with my relatives in Israel or with my clients in the United States, as you would if you lived in a free country.

I love that I can simply pay using PayPal and forget about giving them my credit card details. Paying this way is so much easier, secure and really fast.

Video calls are the best since I can communicate with my friends at no cost.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the quality of the call is bad or it is cut off, this happens most frequently with video calls. I used to think that it happened due to my internet connection but It continued to happen when I switched to a faster 10 Mb connection, so it must be something going on with their servers.

The rates could be cheaper, but either way, this service has a cost that I am willing to pay.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you subscribe to one of the monthly plans, make sure to spend all the minutes, and if you only use it for a month, remember to cancel the subscription, because Skype does not forget and will charge you without notice the monthly payment. So you must be attentive.

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

I can communicate with my clients either by video calls or traditional calls. I usually converse with them and coordinate our workflows and deadlines. I've lost count of how many job interviews I've had on Skype. Something really basic for any freelancer who needs to stay connected with their clients.
