Skype Portable, instant messaging, video chat and phone calls
The new version adds not only a fresh look, but also faster performance, easier group chatting, and better notification control. There's really no single communication service that offers everything Skype does. —Michael Muchmore, PCMag.com, June 23, 2013.
A great messenger for voice and video calls. —Iwillneverstop (a user), SnapFiles.com, Dec 26, 2012.
Honestly if I could I would give 0 stars. If Skype needs to start charging, I think they should. I'd rather pay an annual fee than to be exposed to this kind of ''video calls''. I can't even say 2 sentences before it disconnects. —Franklin of Tallahassee, FL on Oct. 4, 2014, ConsumerAffairs.com.
Skype keeps the world talking. Call, message and share whatever you want for free.
