Overall Satisfaction with Skype

Skype is exceptionally a great tool to connect with your coworkers while working. The best feature I have experienced is the screen sharing capability, which helps a lot with discussing your projects online and you can easily understand what the speaker wants to make you understand. You can make group calls, add members, and send an invite by scheduling your tasks to it. Hand raise and emoticons are also available to express your feelings over the chat. The UI is friendly and easy to manage and use. Privacy shortcuts are also available. It also allows muting the disturbance in a group call.
  • Quality audio and video calls.
  • Screen sharing facility.
  • Mute disturbance in group calls.
  • Scheduling and inviting.
  • Hand raise and emoticons.
  • Sometimes slows down while updating.
  • Emoticons are somehow outdated.
  • It really impacts our organization in a positive manner as the use is Free of cost. We are using Free Trial.
  • In our organization Skype is used by all the departments for connecting to our team mates as well as to resolve any query requiring virtual meet.
  • We have approximately more than 500 employees and for a virtual connect we use Skype, as well as for organizing various webinars and wellness sessions. We have enjoyed the quality a lot.
Customer support is really amazing. If you're stuck somewhere, you just need to communicate your problem and they will assist you so amazingly that you just need to sit and relax and the rest is done by the customer support team.

It offers various amazing features like conducting one-on-one sessions, feedback sessions, large group discussions and you can make all this possible just by sitting at your home. It really helped when I worked from home and needed to connect my team on a platform and discuss things, really supported balancing my work life along with my personal life. You will get 24/7 extended support; if you have any issues you can chat and contact customer support. Compatible with mobile as well as desktop devices. It allows you to integrate with many other software like Gmail, Calendar, Outlook. An amazing tool to digitally connect with your near and dear ones.

Using Skype

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.
In our organization, we have different departments as well as people who require virtual assistance over the video call. Teachers need to take online classes over the web, I need to connect for organizing wellness sessions, feedback sessions, meetings. There is HR department that needs to connect for organizing sessions for the benefits of employees and so on.
  • Scheduling meetings over video call.
  • Conducting face-to-face Interviews.
  • Online classes.
  • Virtual wellness.
  • One-on-one sessions are conducted for wellness in the lockdown period.
I really appreciate Skype for its features and quality standards. It really helps in terms of virtual assistance in the lockdown period where we need to maintain Social distancing and need to work online.
