People use it to communicate as well as share screens. Also it is very very convenient to use Skype for video calls. Also the integration of Skype with Lync makes it all the more valuable for my organization. Also it helps us to get our technical issues sorted by using screen share and the ability to transfer control helps a lot. You can transfer control to the technician and he can do the fix himself so you don't have to scratch your head worrying about where to get the job done.,Video calls: The best application for video calls. It automatically adapts to your connection speed and the video call is adjusted accordingly. Also, the clarity of audio and video is great. Communication: It has a great interface for texting. The use of emoticons makes it meaningful to send across your message more effectively. Screenshare and transfer control: You can share your screen and also transfer control to someone who is trying to help you from another system and it is very very convenient. Form groups: You can organize your contacts by forming groups.,Calls drops: I think this is inherent in any calling software and there is always room for improvement in this area Interface: Probably Skype can make the user interface more friendly for new users.

About Skype

Skype (the personal edition) is a free web meeting, video conferencing, and VoIP software. The free version includes instant messaging, audio and video Skype-to-Skype calls, the ability to call mobile phones and landlines, paid international calling, and conference calling capabilities for up to 25 people. During video sessions, users also have the option to share their screen with other participants. Other distinctive features include background blurring, voice and text translation, location share, conversation search, and integration with Microsoft's Digital Assistant, Cortana.

This version of Skype works on phones, desktop, tablet, browsers, Alexa, and Xbox. Users can call landlines and mobile phones from around the world by paying for Skype Credit or signing up for Skype subscriptions, a monthly contract for users who only need service to specific regions. Users can also pay to have a local phone number through Skype Numbers, so that they can answer phone calls from their desktops, tablets, or smartphones. They can also send SMS text messages and share their location using the Skype mobile app.
