"Convenient, quick and reliable"

What do you like best?

I love that Skype allows me to connect with multiple individuals at once, without an additional fee. The company is recognized worldwide and it ensures less of a hassle when communicating with people because of its ease of accessibility.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally the network connection on skype can be a little iffy, however, this can't always be blamed on the company as people have different wifi speeds and there are many other variables involved. It can also be tough to find peoples usernames at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In terms of recommendations to others considering using Skype for their business or personal needs, I would say it's important to ensure that you have a strong network connection for things to run smoothly and that everyone is already added as a contact. This definitely ensures a smoother user experience.

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

I personally use Skype most when I need to have a conference and not everyone is at the same place at the same time. The benefits that Skype offers are that I don't need a space to hold all the individuals partaking in the conference, and it allows me to work from the comfort of my home, office or when I'm away.

What is Skype?

"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.

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 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 allows more privacy for our employees. Also, meetings and conference calls can be done virtually with the amazing features.

"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.

"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.

"Skype is my favourite software of all time."

What do you like best?

Video conferencing is the best for sure because it is more or less making conversation a face to face experience. I simply make it easier to have conversations regardless of the distance just a good internet connection and all is good.

Allows both audio and video conferencing and you can have a group chat with Skype which is incredible.

What do you dislike?

Quite frankly I haven't seen any feature that's a drawback but a good internet connect could pass off as a item to consider because without it it means everything will be in a standstill but so far so good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most definitely recommend its use because it I'd the beat video conferencing software among other amazing features that you'll definitely find out once you try it that's for sure.

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

Venue for meetings are no longer issues that are a concern because with Skype I am able to have meetings with my team and share ideas online which means that regardless of the time and place I can still check meetings off my list.

Communication is at breeze with Skype for sure and sharing of files regardless of the size is easy. How I love it.

"Skype is a Revolutionary Collaboration and Communication Tool"

What do you like best?

It is stable and efficient. You can communicate with someone from another country through video chat or messaging. It is highly reliable and it has never let me down. At some point when I was an online freelancer, I could talk to my clients in real time.I get to chat with my clients in the messaging section and the messaging platform is very user friendly. It comes with emojis and everything necessary to pass your point more vividly.

What do you dislike?

The desktop application is heavy and resource intensive. It can make your computer to run into a deadlock. I was forced to uninstall the software and use Skype on web, using Skype on a browser such as google chrome. After I decided to use Skype online, I found out it cannot be used with firefox mozilla. I feel users should be allowed to access Skype from any device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They should enable users to enjoy Skype services through other browsers other than chrome and microsoft edge only. Browsers such as firefox mozilla are still being in use and their users should be allowed to use Skype online.

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

I use Skype as a collaborative tool. I'm carrying out a project with a partner in India and we communicate via Skype. I receive updates on his progress with his part and I also update him on the progress I have made and what I'm currently working on.

"Voicecalls, videocalls, all in one!"

What do you like best?

Skype is great, there are a lot of benefits I find using this platform and that's what I love. The best thing about the platform is undoubtedly the cost and is that it is really one of the cheapest prices you find in the market, however, the quality is very high, nothing to do with the price, in fact if you compare price-quality you will find that the application itself is very economical. Another great attribute of Skype is its mobile application, especially its weight, is quite light and does not stop working well, is fast, easy to use and is very optimized, the available updates are constantly appearing and that's very excellent, because with that you realize that is an application that is always implementing improvements.

The quality of audio and video, are very optimal, so they make the experience of video calling another level.

What do you dislike?

I like Skype a lot, however I think it has a small problem and it is annoying that when you can not get an optimal Internet connection Skype service stops working or starts to work very badly, usually the video call is left with the frozen image and the audio is completely muted ... or simply the application closes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Using skype not only will bring you quality calls but an awesome experience while you talk with your family, friends and coworkers.

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

For things in life I had to leave my home and go to live far away, I'm very familiar and it has affected me a lot to be away from my parents, however, thanks to Skype I can have total quality communication with them, it is good to see them always through video calls, and it is also very nice that I can feel them close through the application.

It also helps me to get in touch with my coworkers, making easy the communication and discussion of different topic and issues that may come up in the company.

"Optimization of help for the company"

What do you like best?

The ways in which you can develop in our area of work has a great impact for our developers, allows us to give a topic or a very professional communication, I must say that at the beginning the software was a little complicated for the management and use of this same but afterwards we were providing everything correctly and communication is very important for this software because it contains several tools that help us to have a connection between our customers and interested people within our work area, the system of calls and messaging is something very important to be able to use properly and refer to many useful things

What do you dislike?

It should be considered a good internet service for the management and use of it, since it contains several things that can have a high impact of use, as is the very good and adequate feature of file sharing and screen sharing, this tool should be very extensive since it contains a large consumption of possibilities within the user that we are working and also be it in computer, cell phone and other devices, it contains large quantities of tools but which consume a lot of service on your part and can leave us limited

Recommendations to others considering the product

In order to get the maximum we must consider different things to work, the implementation is very important within Skype, the situation is very extensive which we can develop and implement a suitable development of this software, it contains very good examples to be able to keep track of Several options in which we can improve within our company or our work area to later take a next step to manage and carry a better procedure within the same tools which offers

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

To obtain a more detailed service and also to be able to acquire much more security to deal with the communication and the closing of the same service, I can say that this software contains very good possibilities to be able to implement within our work developments and also to be able to contribute in a general way in certain points of communication and likewise to be able to give those services in a professional and unique way to stand out among several more providers

The communication with Skype, allows additionally to make calls, even to telephones that do not have Skype and its basic service is free, but really it is a service conceived for video conferences. Additionally, the functions that allow to make the conferences in working groups, where other elements can be incorporated to enrich the virtual meetings, are offered with the paid service.

What do you dislike?

"Do you want a good option for your video calls? Skype is the solution"

What do you like best?

I love this application not only on the professional plane but also on the personal plane, is recognized worldwide, has a panel very easy to use for anyone, you can install it on your cell phone whether android or iOS, on your pc if you find it more comfortable or on your tablet. The audio and video are the best in terms of quality. And you have additional tools that enrich it like the messaging chat and the double screen function.

What do you dislike?

Probably one of the things that needs is to innovate a little more its interface and functionalities, there are other applications of this type that sometimes offer the same, but Skype has so much time in the market that I think it would be good to create additional functionalities that have attractive and a strong competitor in the software of your company.

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

We like to use it because we can get quick interviews of the players of the football team after a match, this allows us to make the press releases with enough time to be published. We save time, and players feel comfortable using it. It is also a great means of communication between the different journalists and editors of our press department, especially when we are in different places and we are a part of the team in the field attentive to information and others in the office, we hold concrete meetings without the need to be in the same place.

Another outstanding feature of Skype is that its basic service is free.

What do you dislike?

If you need a video conference service with all these features offered by Skype, you should bear in mind that this service has its cost.

You can only justify this investment, if you really require continuous use of Skype. After evaluating the costs and the service represents a productive element for your organization, it is well worth having it.

The cost of the service is a factor to be considered when hiring.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I like Skype since it is very easy to share the screen, to add contacts to chat groups. Skype meetings are extremely useful inside and outside of our organization, also akype is the best application for video calls. It automatically adapts to the speed of your connection and the video call is adjusted accordingly. Also, the clarity of audio and video is great.

What do you dislike?

Video chat interaction is not ideal. The video of each person is very small.

It is very suitable to connect with people inside and outside the organization who have access to Skype. The fact that it is linked to Outlook is extremely useful.

I recommend it.

"You create as many groups as you want."

What do you like best?

What I like most about Skype is its mobile connection, it is always constantly updated, they always implement improvements to make the user experience better, the application is also very optimized, I can take the application wherever I go, and I can communicate with my friends and family from the comfort of wherever I am. The application itself doesn't weigh much, so it's not a problem to have it on my cell phone, I just don't have to worry about my phone's memory.

I also like that through Skype I can make video calls with total quality, the resolution of the video is very high and the sound is excellent, Skype is the best application that offers this service. Its interface is very comfortable, easy to use and its design is fully optimized.

What do you dislike?

I really have no complaint about the service Skype offers, it is an excellent platform, the only detail to be careful with is that when the Internet connection is not good or stable, because if the Internet has a slow connection, because the video calls are not good, it gives a lot of trouble, sometimes they hang or just fall, it would be excellent to implement a Skype application for slow connections, it would be a great relief for many.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I like skype for its very good interface and easy understanding, in addition to its very good optimization.

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

Skype is the best communication system I use, not long ago I moved very far from my city, then thanks to this wonderful platform I can be closer to my friends and family, it's great because it's as if they were next to me talking, because the quality of the application is really high. In the office it also helps me a lot, because I can talk to my employees in this way and the instructions are clearer, I like to see their faces and not waste too much time.

"Great service!"

What do you like best?

I like how you can use this to call your friends for free and the rates are very affordable when calling overseas. The video sharing on skype is good but don't like how sometimes it changes the positioning of the buttons and having my prospects not able to find where it is and end up not screen sharing because they don't know where the button is. The audio is great and better without video on at the same time. I like the ability to share your face and the screen at the same time and is just like zoom but this is free whereas zoom gives you a 1 hour limit unless you pay.

What do you dislike?

I don't like when I'm on a conference call on skype that it disconnects during the middle of the call and having to reconnect everyone back to the call. I don't like the quality of the video and that its not HD and a bit fuzzy because I have a decent web cam and wished that the quality can be shown within side skype

Recommendations to others considering the product

It would be better if the sound and video quality improved

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

Connecting with prospects for business has never been more cost effective using skype to call than a regular sim card. The ability to find prospects instantly with skype made connecting with skype the easiest point of contact for my business. Also I am able to send a message

"Skype is rock solid!"

What do you like best?

It's abundance of features is awesome! I don't need anything more than it provides. From a chat I can switch to a video call and still keep chat going as well. It's been a very important part of communicating with my customers. Some customers use it instead of emailing me.

What do you dislike?

Sometime the screen sharing is a bit flaky. But overall, there really isn't anything I dislike. The only thing I dislike is that I must have a Microsoft account, since they bought Skype awhile back. Sometimes when rebooting my PC, it takes awhile to load as it waits for Skype to load and connect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You'll need a Microsoft account, but other than that, it's extremely easy to use.

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

Customer contact with customers from all over the world. If people don't have it, they can get it really easily. As stated previously, many customers only use Skype to communicate with me. They don't even email unless it's something that needs to sent via email only.

People can safely send passwords and then delete that part of the conversation. They can attach files, show me their desktops, etc. All from Skype.

Our communication with customers has skyrocketed since using Skype. I find I can reach out to people with new services and the response is faster than email. It's really been a great communication and marketing tool for me.

"skype video calling## family #friends#live interaction"

What do you like best?

The best thing about skype is it is very easy to install and other major thing is it is free to use. anybody can easily download and install skype, then simply need to login using email id, it automatically fetch contacts. Then just go on, stay live chat and enjoy.

What do you dislike?

The voice quality really need improvement and it is one of the major concern. The automatic noise cancellation feature is not available in skype. Group chat need authentication and need to add more security and privacy. Other major concern is, anyone can easily record complete chat video, skype need to notify of block such applications and features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is freeware tool to use, and very easy to use and install. it solves major problems of live video chat in day to day life. It become easy simply with internet and skype you can contact or call anyone close to u, within no time. But it need high speed internet connection. speed expected around 2 MB per sec for seamless communicative. Other video tools and applications are also available, but i personally suggest and reccomed to use skype once, as it is very good.

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

Client and developer communication is no more difficult task or boring email or chat, now they interact directly whit skype and clear the communication. The concept of online presentations and e-conferences rise due to skype. This problem is also solved using skype.

"Connect with everyone through Skype. "

What do you like best?

We have all ever needed to communicate by video calls with a relative who is elsewhere, for a job interview, for classes, among many other things that require the use of a video call, there are many programs to make video conferences and hold virtual meetings, but even now my favorite has been Skype, it has undoubtedly been the benchmark videoconference program for many years, it has desktop versions for PC and Mac; versions for Android mobile devices, to use it we only have to have a Microsoft account and that's it, it has a desktop version that makes it more user-friendly on computers, especially in terms of contact management, and that offers a use very good, allows you to share files and display your computer screen, it is completely free, I use a lot Skype, especially when I want to communicate with colleagues and superiors who are in another part of the country or when we want to make a group video conference, or just use it to communicate with my family, who is abroad, Skype is a very useful software for a more fluent communication.

What do you dislike?

It offers less quality and has more stability problems than other videoconferencing programs and sometimes the call does not work well or it is cut, but I think this is more a problem of the internet server than of the application itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Skype is an excellent platform to communicate, it is FREE, easy to use, it allows you to share files, make group video calls, among other things, that's why I highly recommend the use of Skype, you can communicate with your customers easily and quickly and also not You can only use it for work, it is also very useful to communicate with relatives who are in other parts of the world and I will end up saying that this is what I love most about Skype, that no matter who is in the other part of the world, we could still have a face-to-face call with her, through Skype.

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

Thanks to Skype, I can communicate with clients that are out of the country, with other publishers or with my colleagues, so we can work together in a project in real time without having to be in the same place, it has also been very useful for those moments in which we must make a video conference and we are not all in one place, what we do is go to Skype, I must add that the application is free, so we do not spend anything at all.

3)Collaborated team conferences (audio and video)

4)Favorable rates for calls

5)Transferring files are much much easier. A simple drag and drop does the magic

6) Expressive emoticons

7)Also, I use Skype for personal use and connect my friends for video calls. These are much better than whatsapp video calls.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing much to dislike but there are few bugs observed. The last seen at feature is not very accurate and sometimes doesn't even work. The mobile, tablet applications need improvement. I have faced call drops on the app sometimes. Also, maybe its just me but through application use, my phone has experience battery drain and it overheats on more than 1 occasions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Needless to say but Skype is the best business instant messenger. I don't know any company who doesn't use this or use any other IM over Skype. That says a lot of its popularity.

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

Skype helps me stay updated and be in touch with both my clients and my team. I can share my screen and solve many issues for the clients. By far video conferences on Skype are the best. Also, efficiently professional touch bases with my team on skype is so much intuitive than other ims and emails. Also, I use Skype for personal use and connect my friends for video calls.

"Free calls with Skype"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Skype is that I can make free calls to other Skype users, I can be connected with my family, clients and co-workers when I have business trips. I can also have video conferences and chat through the chat. It is very quick installation and easy to use. I can have a group call with up to 50 Skype users

What do you dislike?

In order to use the call option with up to 50 Skype members I must have a paid plan. I can only have free calls with other Skype users, in order to call any operator or landline for free I must have a payment plan. The voice mailbox also falls within the payment plans

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation with Skype is to have the basic plan just in case you want to make calls or video calls with another Skype user, it is very beneficial to maintain contact with your customers. In case you want to maintain contact with larger groups at the same time you must have a payment plan

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

It has been very beneficial for me to be a Skype user because I can hold video conferences with clients or with colleagues when I am on a business trip and we need to meet to see important issues about our products and services
