Nutzerfreundliches und kostenloses Messenger Tool

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Nutzerfreundlich, kostenlos, gute mobile App und viele Features - klare Empfehlung für Skype an dieser Stelle.

Vorteile:

Skype ist für mich einer der besten Messenger. Die Benutzeroberfläche ist intuitiv und Skype bietet eine Vielzahl von Funktionen (animierte Emojis, senden von GIFs). Zusätzlich war mir eine gute Mobile App wichtig und auch das hat Skype sehr gut gelöst. Man Skype auch hervorragend als Telefonersatz nutzen, wenn man sein Konto mit entsprechendem Guthaben auflädt, was ich allerdings erst einmal ausprobiert habe.

Nachteile:

Ich habe nichts zu meckern und bin vollkommen zufrieden mit Skype. Für meine Bedürfnisse passt es perfekt und im täglichen Gebrauch vermisse ich keine Features.

In Betracht gezogene Alternativen:

Skype has always been the best traditional voice calling app until Microsoft acquired it

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Support wide range of operating systems Linux, Windows, Android, Apple IOS , can work even on smart TVs.
It has the possibility to edit or delete chat messages.
very good quality voice and video calls even with very low quality internet connection.

Vorteile:

Skype is the best App for voice and video calling, it have been around since forever one of the best stable reliable communication apps. it has very important functions that many other calling and chat apps are missing, like editing messages and it was able to save the history of your chat and shared media forever. until 2011 when Microsoft acquired Skype they seem to have started to messed up things alot they lowered the number of years you can keep your chat history to only 3 years. and feels like they are killing Skype to push for other alternative solution Microsoft Teams, which is now included in Windows 11 as the default communication app.

Nachteile:

it can keep only last 3 year of chat history. Owned by Microsoft which seems to push for other alternative communication Apps like Microsoft Teams.

Four stars

5,0 vor 8 Monaten

Kommentare: Communications are successful and we've had few problems. Skype has gotten better and better.

Vorteile:

With Skype I get easy to use video conferencing for free. Sound and image both come through clearly and it can translate in real time.Skype isn't strictly for Windows, there are versions for Android, Apple, etc. I chose Skype for my company because of the features listed previously and the other communications like chat, SMS, and calling.

Nachteile:

Skype chose to include SMS but it's only outbound. There's no way to receive an SMS. That's what I would change if it were up to me.

Good product but...

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The experience is good but, considering the list of features of the competitors (Teams and Slack in particular), I prefer using other products where I can. I see the competitors as "more complete" than Skype.

Vorteile:

It is a good product for instant messaging even if, compared to the past, now there are other products (Teams and Slack) that can be used for this. The product works also for video calls including the sharing of the screen. The notifications of a new message/reaction work fine: you never miss a warning for a new message.

Nachteile:

Even if the notification system of a new message works well, you do not have the possibility to receive the warning only if you are directly mentioned. That's a limit compared to the competitors. At the same time, if you need to share a document via Skype, you can but searching it becomes hard even if there is a dedicated section. Moreover, you can't organize the chat "by topic" as you can do for example with Teams or Slack.

Essential of communication

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Skype is the best for regular meetings.

Vorteile:

Skype is free for online meetings. I have not felt any limitations in regular meetings. I can call my friends without the need to send a link to them. It supports texting out of the meetings. A user can send images and files during a meeting and out of it. I can record my meeting easily. I can call telephone numbers at a low cost with my number. In video calls, backgrounds work very well.

Nachteile:

Transcription is good, but it still needs more improvement. Sometimes a video of meetings is choppy. You don't have any control over the microphone or camera of the other party when you call them.

J.L. Skype Review

4,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: Skype has been a great tool that I've used in the past couple of months as a way of communicating with family members and business partners alike across the world via audio-video. However, it's privacy concerns and limited features really drive me away from using it regularly.

Vorteile:

I can learn almost anything virtually and therefore have the skills to work anywhere in the world. For example, I recently had a financial wellness webinar where I learned a lot about budgeting, taxes, and more.

Nachteile:

Skype has faced privacy concerns related to data security and encryption so I tend to use other software like Google Meet and Zoom.

Skype - good video conferencing app

3,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Skype was a great app even just a few years ago, it was used by most people for international calls and conferencing but today it is fading as they have raised their service prices. I would consider comparing it with other apps before using their services as there are many cheaper even free alternatives today.

Vorteile:

We mostly used Skype of making international calls and also a few occasions for video chatting and sharing screens for demos, however Skype raised their prices too high so we envtually dropped this app as there are other apps still offering free international calls. We also replaced Skype eventually with another app for

Nachteile:

It was first very affordable to make international calls with it but they raised their prices too high

It's easy for me to communicate with others when I utilize Skype

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: For both personal and business reasons, Skype is a terrific way to connect quickly and effortlessly. It helps you to feel as if you're in the same place. If you don't want to bother with video or audio, this is a convenient way to communicate fast and effectively. For group talks, I don't think this is a good fit. The maximum group size is ten. Because Google Hangouts was free, we used it for small group calls and GoToMeeting for bigger ones. A fee-based service like GoToMeeting was well-suited for this purpose, though.

Vorteile:

Skype is a fantastic tool for chatting, video conferencing, and more. You may download and use it for free; even beginners can get started right away because it's so simple to use. Text, audio, or video can all be used to communicate. Skype is a cross-platform application that may be used on a variety of devices. Skype has the potential to improve the productivity of business users. You can invite your contacts to meetings that you schedule through the app. Only those who have been invited to the meeting and those who have been linked to the room can join Skype meetings. There are several advantages to using Skype for collaboration. For example, it facilitates file transfer and screen sharing. Skype's OneDrive integration enables you to share files one-by-one or in bulk over Skype. Any content from your computer or phone can be shared with your colleagues if video meetings are not enough. All Skype users, including non-hosts, have access to a shared virtual whiteboard. Use the whiteboard's freehand drawing tool and text to have group discussions and strategize.

Nachteile:

Skype itself is not a problem for me; it's Microsoft's approach to it that bothers me. Skype will no longer be supported by Microsoft in Windows 11. To utilize Skype on Windows 10, you'll need to get used to Microsoft Teams, which is essential for greater security and additional features in Windows 11.

Speedy messaging

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I need to talk and work with the other paralegals and attorneys daily, Skype is easier to use and organizing a meeting isn't as difficult. Speedy messaging is nice to have.

Vorteile:

Skype is very easy to use, much easier than than some of the others. Adding contacts is very easy. I like how quickly I can set up a call, voice only or video. Skype has chat and can be used to send files. Since it's included in Microsoft office 365 I don't have to download it or subscribe.

Nachteile:

I've had very good Skype calls and very poor Skype calls, I never know what I'll get with Skype. I have to go into my office or a room in my house and close the door to prevent background sound. If someone I'm talking to hasn't done this it's very hard to hear them.

Online meeting has become beautiful because of Skype

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I was looking for a new video conferencing app with an agenda and agenda settings, but Zoom Meeting App is really confusing. I had to call the chat support twice and still can't figure it out. Then I moved to skype and I had a pleasure experience

Vorteile:

I have been using Skype for a while now and I really like it. It is easy to use and the quality is always clear. I also have never had any issues with it crashing on me or anything. Overall, Skype has exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good chat app

Nachteile:

It used to be one of my favorite apps in the world and allowed me to communicate with my family as if they were right next to me, no matter where I was in the world. Recently, however, it seems that many things have changed and it's not what it used to be.

Skype helps us stay in touch

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It is the best VoIP (voice over IP) tool for teams and individuals.

Vorteile:

1. Chat or make audio/video calls for free to any device having skype. You can even use it from your mobile app. 2. Skype has an inbuilt translator to translate voice calls automatically. It is a game-changing feature that many competing tools can’t match easily. 3. You can also make calls to landlines or mobile phones on a paid basis. 4. You can store a list of contacts with their skype IDs and chat/ call histories. 5. It is straightforward to set up the tool. After you sign up, you can log in, check the mic and speaker settings, and you are good to go. Invite friends and start communicating. 6. You can set status, change the profile pic, adjust notifications, change theme, and dark mode, use keyboard shortcuts, and do lots more to customize your skype experience. 7. You can also search your chat histories to spot important details. 8. The Skype interface is very intuitive, where you can learn how to use different features without user manuals. 9. You can also create or join meetings for group communications. 10. There are options to set your background scenery to look better during video calls.

Nachteile:

1. If you have no balance, you can’t make a single call to analog numbers like landlines or mobile phones. 2. In the case of slow internet connections, most features are not usable. 3. There are some privacy issues and safety features that need improvement, especially in mobile devices. 4. The basic version of the translator is free, but you need to pay for any meaningful conversations. 5. Conferencing feature for audio/ video calls has some hiccups, and there is scope for improvement.

Get a local phone number via skype

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

What I love the most with Skype is they give you the chance to pick a phone number with your local area code. You can also choose from any other region in the country. The assign phone number will perform just like any regular phone number would. You can pick up calls and respond to text without an issue.

Nachteile:

I dislike the fact that renewing your monthly phone number and your calling credits are two separate bills. I wish they all came as one package.

Kommentare: Good, although clearly others options far exceeds it

Vorteile:

It's very easy to install and intuitive to use, which makes the experience pleasant, you can share the screen and other things that, especially for the time, were great!

Nachteile:

Its interface looks the same as years ago, it has things that give that impression of "stuck in time". It also consumes a lot of resources.

Awesome tool for real time team meeting!

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

I truly like that Skype is free app for communicating since I fired utilizing it up until the present time. We appreciate involving this item in the greater part of our gatherings, even in our classes. This item doesn't be guaranteed to require credit except if you really want it's different elements to settle on decisions to mobiles and landlines and send SMS instant messages. By and large, I am a cheerful client of Skype!

Nachteile:

This item's product presumably utilizes an excess of memory that is weighty when you use it in your PC that it causes a few slacks in your PC utilization. I trust that they can work on this element. Despite the fact that I realize this is free, and I truly do trust that the organization can improve on this one.

Robust and reliable old timer IM Services

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall a great IM service and probably the very first for many of the Gen Y users.

Vorteile:

files sharing , whiteboarding , polling , presence are some of the top features used by us .

Nachteile:

i did not use any of the additional integration features of Skype and seems like it was lack of awareness from the product side plus end user. In todays world MS Teams advertise, push and educate end user much better with every feature drop which was lacking for Skype
