Good way of communicating with loved ones who are far away. It's so much having a way to see a person through video chat then hear their voice through the phone. Anyone can use this app. It's pretty easy & simple and it's free. There's just one thing that I don't like about the app is the app. While I'm using it it'll freeze sometimes or it'll stop responding & close the app or it doesn't notify you if you had a call or a message.

I recall back when this service first had came out & it was such an exciting concept to be able to video chat with family and friends from all over within the comfort of your home. Sadly with time that feeling fleed as issues with freezing and audio problems. Now I dont know many people to use this service anymore with all the other array of options currently available.

Skype is a great tool for keeping in touch with family that has moved away. I love how you can take pictures of the screen as you talk so that way when your family member forgets to send pictures to you and onlly you, you'll have up-to-date family photos. The quality of the video could be better and so could the signal. It seems to always cut out.

I love skype. This app makes it so easy to communicate with everyone you know. I like that you can just message people without video. Of course I like the video function as well. I used it a lot for business purposes as well as interviewing. There are tons of video calling apps out there but this is hands down my favorite one.

It is an amazing program. It allows me stay in contact with friends who live far away. It s ver easy to use. You can hear and talk perfectly with no problems. It is free, which make it more interesting. I would like Skype to have "specific chats", where you can choose a chat where people talk about some interest you have.

Skype is a great program that is being used more in more in both professional and personal settings. I've had job interviews on Skype and I was very concerned about the quality of the connection. But everything went well and there were no issues with the program. It's a great free way to connect with people.

Skype currently is one of the tools that many users use for making calls by voice and video worldwide . This company recently was acquired by one of the monsters of computing, and I mean Microsoft . Besides the service it was incorporated into the world 's largest social network Facebook .

Skype is an amazing program. It enables me to chat and speak with whomever I"d like. I can actually see the person I'm speaking in a vivid manner. The best feature is the video and it is very inexpensive. I would recommend improvement in the video quality and adding new features.

Skype is such a wonderful thing. How amazing is it that you can see someone from across the world face to face. Skype is so easy to use. The only thing is it stops working or the picture gets dry fuzzy once in a while but I'm sure that depends on the kind of Internet used.

My skype seems to crash all of the time regardless of the internet (wifi or mobile I'm using) It's a great tool to stay in touch with all of your friends from far away. You can both text and video message. They have a bunch of cute emojis. Sometimes it's hard to use.
