"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 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?

"The most complete platform of communication and collaboration"

What do you like best?

Skype is a software that allows me to be connected at all times, with colleagues, friends and co-workers, video calls are the most attractive feature that offers but not the most useful that I think is the instant chat that allows sharing documents and images easily.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's the best communication software I know and we've tried many others, but the best stability and call quality is Skype.

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

Skype is the most complete platform of communication and collaboration that I know, we adopted it in our company after a long test thanks to its characteristics of business communication that allow us to organize meetings of vieo with numerous assistants and to maintain collaborative talks supported on data and documents that we can exchange without problems and quickly, in these meetings one hopes that the sound is not the best, however Skype has a sound quite clear that does not allow fissures.

What do you like best?

I have been using skype from last 6+ years for personal & collaborative professional meetings as well. Most of the time we need to work with multiple teams which resides in different geographical location. Skype is my all-time favorite for all meetings and client communications too.

Moreover, edit and deletion of the message are also possible which again increase the ease of usability. Also, I cannot forget the screen sharing feature which keeps all the participants on the same page. All around keeping all the usable functionality into consideration it's an overall best communication tool is market.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the voice quality and screen got frozen, but that is rare and I somehow believe that is also dependent on the internet connection of end-user as well.

What do you like best?

The most significant elements of Skype are the voice and video discussions that are low-latency and advantageous. In addition, the application gives clients top-notch voice discussions, that effects decidedly on the solace of talk. Misuse the instrument is complimentary, because the permit, downloading and calls various clients aren't charged. Skype underpins many working frameworks and gadgets, in this manner, you can get to a PC, compact PC and portable, allowing you to keep it around. The program is furthermore really adjustable, and my preferred office is building up gatherings, as overseeing them and talking is consistent. In addition, you can do short reviews and get the appropriate responses rapidly.

What do you dislike?

Sadly, running the program takes inexhaustible time and it by and large goes down or crashes, that is kind of inconvenient. Furthermore, I can't share certain records due to its size or format, that isn't operated.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In case you're seeking for an application that guarantees the magnificent nature of voice and video discussions, you would potentially consider downloading Skype. Furthermore, it's amazingly conceivable that your companions and associates utilize the program, all together that they won't have to open an account.

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

Skype permits me to lead top-notch voice and video discussions, so sharing information and talking about issues with my colleagues is consistent and effective due to low latency calls and well enhancement.

"The best app to communicate"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Skype is that it allows me to make free calls anywhere in the world quickly and easily. This way I can plan with my team new marketing strategies in the distance. Video calls through this app have a high sound quality that facilitates communication and understanding. The installation of Skype was made easy and fast to me, I think it is within everyone's reach. I like that it works on different devices that I use like Windows, Mac OS X or Android.

What do you dislike?

I dislike Skype that sometimes I have found unwanted contacts. The program's search engine exposes me to anyone who wants to know me just by knowing my user. I also don't like that I have to pay to leave a voice message or make a landline call.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend you tell an optimal connection to Interner to have a pleasant Skype experience. Before participating in a working video conference, you can do a sound and video test to verify that your tools are working normally. I also advise that your microphone is muting when it's not your turn to talk.

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

The main benefit that Skype offers me is being able to communicate with several people at the same time. So I don't have to repeat the information. Another point that benefits me is being able to have a conversation without a camera. Only with the microphone can it be achieved.

"Excellent application for 1 to 1 conversations"

What do you like best?

I have been using this application for more than 5 years, it is excellent to be able to call any person to their personal number no matter where they are, all this from the computer or from the mobile application.

This application also allows you to create videoconferences with other Skype users in which you can share the screen in case you are making a presentation.

If you have Skype for Bussines is even better because it works as if you had a PBX in the cloud, ie you can assign extensions to your users and then call them.

Skype is really useful

What do you dislike?

I think the version of Skype that comes with Windows 10 is very bad, is always inhibited, you need to uninstall it and download the official version of the Skype page.

Another thing I don't like is that to send a document through chat is extremely slow regardless of whether you have a good Internet connection or not.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is important that if you are going to host a videoconference, make sure you have a good Internet connection, otherwise you will have problems with video and audio.

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

Skype has helped me a lot as it allows me to call customers in other countries directly to their mobile phone.

This helps us to improve the effectiveness when it comes to customer service.

On the other hand I think that the balance that is charged to the application to be able to make calls lasts long enough to make hundreds of calls because they are really inexpensive.

"Great for International Work"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use and an effective alternative to phones for international associations. I am currently working with a U.K. based concern and the ease of use anywhere is paramount given the time differences, etc. It's really just a good platform for maintaining contact across many relationships. I also like the android app as it brings a new dimension to the world of communicating and developing relationships.

What do you dislike?

The association with Microsoft. I don't appreciate that aspect at all. I don't always feel comfortable with Microsoft's intentions or rather what they perceive as "what I need." I prefer being able to use Skype with a "stand alone" user id well before even coming close to having too have a Microsoft ID So as long as the platform remains as an effectively independent platform I will continue to conduct my affairs with Skype whenever possible.I do hope there are no plans to further embed with MS

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It does a fine job and sometimes keeping it simple is the best thing

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

Effective visual communication. Its good for issues that you cannot get from email or text and that is "inflection" and "tone." Its a very good use for these purposes and allows users to communicate effectively with another. This is important when it comes to developing rapport with colleagues, customers and vendors from other parts of the world. It certainly adds to the ease of crossing cultural nuances and so on.

Hassle free chatting and user friendly UI. Always improves the functionality. Cool emotes, you can create pole for any current event. Make groups and share your thought.

"“Skype- Connecting People around the World”"

What do you like best?

I like Skype because it is compatible with both smartphones and computers. Skype enables people across the globe connect through instant texting, audio calling, and video calling. The other function of Skype that I like most is that it is free to use after sign up. Also, Skype allows group chats and thus saves time by sending a message to a group instead of individual users.

What do you dislike?

Skype relies on internet connection and this is a demerit because lack of internet connectivity means no use of Skype. The other thing I dislike of Skype is its security concerns for it is a major target by attackers and hackers who conceal passwords and other personal information. Last, the calls quality from Skype can be low when internet connectivity is not strong thus reducing its convenience.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Skype to all individuals and businesses considering it for it will help them in limiting the costs associated with messaging and making calls. Also, considering Skype will help businesses and individuals in holding online meetings, video conferencing, instant messaging, and online interviews with convenience.

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

With Skype, video conferencing, instant messaging, and voice calling has been low cost and on point when connecting to friends, businesses, and family. Scheduling of meetings has been timely with Skype through group messaging and chats. Also with Skype, working from home has been facilitated and become easy. Last, using Skype has been convenient for it is mobile friendly and can be used anywhere so long as there is internet connectivity.

What do you dislike?

Tiene algunos problemas tecnicos con la camara o el microfono y a veces la video llamada se ve pixelado por eso recomiendo tener una buena conexion de internet. Puede traer contactos no deseados que podrian perjudicar nuestro trabajo. La licencia puede ser un poco costosa. En el movil no tiene la capacidad de recuperar mensajes y eso es un poco molesto.

"Skype is still my first love though I cheat on her with Zoom sometimes."

What do you like best?

I love that it's free and familiar with upgrade options that are very reasonable. Skype can be used with both friends and work. The best way to describe skype is for those that live by a mantra-like: Keep it Simple Stupid!, or Don't fix what's not broken. It is also Microsoft owned so the updates just keep coming and likely future-proofed solutions for basic teleconferencing.

What do you dislike?

That ringtone haunts me in my dreams. It is almost as traumatizing to hear as TAPS playing while you are in basic training in the military. Sure you can change it, probably, but remember there was a group of people sitting around a table being paid 100k plus a year to decide THAT was the best ringtone to start with. So basically I hate the sound effects.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check out Zoom, Skype for business and whatever the one google has. Probably on G2 there is a comparison. For pure buisness or trying to impress people at online dinner parties, I personally love Zoom more than Skype, my wife, and children, but I never tried skype for business, so just check them all out and ask the community before you commit to one teleconference lover.

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

Chat function in skype is great and easy. Sharing files between the work crew is easy. It just works well together. A benefit is that everyone knows Skype, so no need to onboard them to death, I hope I'm the first make that horrible pun.

"Skype"

What do you like best?

Here are the plus points I noticed when I was using Skype:

+ Skype availability is completely free. You can go to the office. I download the program directly from it. Once you have registered, you can immediately use Skype for its intended purpose. It is worth saying that you can call from it to the phones, but only after you have deposited your account.

+ Nice interface. An experienced computer user can easily understand the interface. It's easy to find a friend and add them to your contacts list.

+ Functionality In "Skype" is everything necessary for an ordinary user. Voice calls, video calls, file sharing, group calls, and showing the screen to the other side.

What do you dislike?

- Sometimes, even with a high-speed Internet connection, you can't, you can't pull it by disconnecting while connecting, drop the connection, and so on.

- Safety issues when using Skype leaves much to be desired.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using Skype to anyone looking for a free instant messenger.

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

Skype allows me to chat with team members and share files with them.

"It's simple and easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like Skype because it's simple and easy to use, with features very useful for collaboration and HD video calls, I also like it because it's free and I've used it for years to communicate with distant friends and family, I like to be able to send documents and messages instantly and I like to be able to organize regular video conferences with new topics in important discussion for the company.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact that I use a lot of resources on my computer and it also slows down or delays sending messages.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I've used your free version for many years and it is highly recommended to try it, now I use the Business version and the performance is optimal and the features are surpassed.

Skype is the best communication software that greatly improved the communication of my company and mine in particular, allows me to conduct interviews and surveys with employees working in other cities, allows me to conduct weekly videoconferences to set priorities and train new ones.

"Excellent application to communicate fluidly on video calls"

What do you like best?

What I like about Skype is its excellent quality in the communication of video calls in groups, as this has allowed us to significantly reduce operating costs with our customers and improve response times between our work teams, with the implementation of collaborative strategies through this platform to streamline work projects in a more dynamic way.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I do not like about Skype the files that can be shared through the application can not be large because they tend to give some kind of error or they just do not happen, which can be limiting if we want to share an important file I already happened on a couple of occasions that I had video files of about 200 megabytes that I needed to send and can not do it on Skype.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skype is one of the best tools to communicate through video call with a quality connection, in fact it is one of the most used by professionals around the world. With Skype you can have clear and fluent conversations even when communicating with people or clients who are in other countries. It is a tool that will be very useful to keep in contact with remote customers, as well as to improve internally the communication between your different work teams to strengthen collaborative work.

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

Skype has become one of our tools for daily use, we use it mainly for internal communications between work teams, especially when we have to coordinate strategies to complete an ongoing project. Skype has helped us to improve collaborative work, group calls are some of the functions that we use the most because of the advantages that we can share screens to explain the instructions and strategies to follow in projects.
