Users and Roles

We are in the education industry and we require a platform that helps to connect with our students as well as co-workers smoothly. Skype offers various key features that meet our expectations when we connect virtually. I need to arrange webinars, feedback, one-on-one sessions, meetings online in which Skype helped me a lot as the call quality is excellent and it offers privacy security while connecting.

10 - All business functions use Skype. The marketing team uses it to speak with designers and creatives, the operations team uses it to speak with suppliers and manufacturers. The sales team uses it for interviews and phone screens. Overall the entire organizations use Skype to support any communication needs they have with external parties.

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.
