What is Skype? Description of Skype

Skype keeps the world talking. Say “hello” with an instant message, voice or video call – all for free*, no matter what device they use Skype on. Skype is available on phones, tablets, PCs, and Macs.

• Video calls – Don’t just hear the cheers, see them! Get together with 1 or 49 of your friends and family on a HD video call. Watch everyone’s smiles and cries when you tell them “We’re engaged!!!" 
• Chat – Reach people instantly. Send messages to your friends, grab someone’s attention with @ mentions, or create a group chat to plan a family reunion. 
• Share – Send photos and videos with your family and friends. Save shared photos and videos to your camera roll. Share your screen to make travel plans with friends or present designs to your team.
• Voice calls – Camera shy? Make voice calls to anyone in the world on Skype. You can also call mobile and landlines at low rates.
• Express yourself – Liven up conversations with emoticons, click on the “+” in chat to send a Giphy or images from the web, and annotate images with words, lines and more.

*Skype to Skype calls are free. Operator data charges may apply. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection.

Call landline and mobile phone numbers and send SMS messages anywhere in the world at affordable prices using Skype. Reach non-Skype users or contacts who are not online by choosing Skype Credit or Skype subscriptions. 
 
Choose Skype Credit as a pay-as-you-go option to call and SMS. If you call specific destinations, save even more with monthly subscriptions. Skype subscriptions are monthly calling plans that let you make unlimited, or fixed-minute calls to landlines (and mobiles where applicable). Subscriptions begin at $2.99 a month for US, and can vary by destination. To make an in-app purchase, open the app, go to the Call tab, and tap on the Skype to Phone banner. Skype Credit and Subscriptions purchased from the Skype app will be charged to your iTunes account when the purchase is confirmed.
 
Your account will be charged for Skype subscription renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Your subscription is renewed automatically unless auto-renewal is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period of subscription.
 
You can manage your subscription by going to your Apple ID account settings and choosing the auto-renewal option or turning it off any time after your purchase.

Skype Pros

Reality is good!There are a lot of things going on around Skype. Some people say that they prefer old interface. Other’s remember old bugs. But reality is way better. Most of the old bugs are squashed. Skype actually works better than before these days. New looks... why they supposed to keep old interface for ages? Kid is a changing. New changes may not be to everyone’s taste, but they are not that bad if you give them a chance. Dark mode, reactions and stuff - they make Skype look modern and up to date. The only element for me that still struggles with intuitive use is ‘edit’. There’s a message in chat screen and there’s an edited version of it below. It does not make sense. If you edit something that is history - let it ‘live’ in history. Otherwise this new Skype is very good!.PromiceusVersion: 8.22

Skype Cons

Works but...It ask me to interact with dev teem way too much. They should try oce a year instead of after each call..GnodebVersion: 8.70

Chat is glitchyI haven’t used it in awhile so didn’t know what to expect. I tried texting and the written msgs would float around the screen, super glitchy and laggy. After I closed it I double checked is there an update or something and there’s not, it’s up to date. Not the Skype I remember from couple years ago. Hopefully it’s gonna be fixed as I’ve made new contacts there and I would love to use the chat at one point..Nate the PyroVersion: 8.68
