All those looking forward to having a seamless voice or video call, the Skype app is here to lend a helping hand. Gone are those days when Skype was just limited to a desktop or laptop system and its use was limited to the corporate world. With a slew of amazing upgrades, advancements, features, and functionalities, Skype is now compatible with a plethora of devices and it is used for many purposes.

It’s been such a long time since the inception of Skype but it still has the same light blue interface. In fact, the same theme of the application makes it recognizable and adorable. With the Skype app installed on your phone, you can establish one-to-one and group voice call and video call. In case, you do not wish to involve in a call, you can even begin chatting with your friends or peers.

In its endeavor to edge out its competitors, even Skype now offers reliable and much better file transfer system. Thus, whether you are on a voice call, video call or in the chatting mode, you can easily share files with your personal and professional acquaintances. Be it a document, contact or media file, you can share them all easily.

Interacting with someone on Skype is no more mundane and monotonous. With lots of amusing features such as emoticons, smileys, video notes, funny gifs, etc. Skype takes the fun quotient of the chatting to a new high.

Screen Sharing is another amazing feature offered by Skype. Once on a video call, you can share your screen with others. Also, with ‘Skype Credit’ recharged, the Skype app can also be utilized to make a phone call directly from its interface. In case, you wish to forward the call to some other number, you can do that as well with Skype’s ‘Call Forwarding’ feature.

The app further boasts of a myriad of other options such as chatbots, Skype Wifi, video setting, auto-answer of the calls, copying contacts, etc.

Owing to all the aforementioned features and functionalities, Skype has been able to make its place in the smart devices of more than 1 billion people. Other than these features, security of the app is also a big contributor to such a large user base. The app shields the privacy of its user and ensures that there is no leak of personal or financial information. In fact, there is a set of a privacy setting that offers the options of call blacklisting, password management, allowing ads, etc.

On the whole, Skype is an amazing and useful app that comes handy when there is a need to undertake a chat or make high-quality voice and video calls.
