I have been using Skype for Business for almost 3 years now and I am completely satisfied with it.

I often connect with my friends and family through Skype video calls and the video quality is just amazing, the voice is fine and pure. Skype does have other features than calls that often come in handy and makes your work easier like the Whiteboard and the screen sharing features.

through 3 years of using Skype, I have realized how much it saved for me by letting me make tons of calls without charging a dime! I just love Skype for Business!

Puntos a favor

I love Skype for Business because it lets me connect with my friends, classmates or even with strangers that I meet in some online game! Skype has many many amazing features that I enjoy every day. it lets you voice call or even video call your friends in an HD resolution and high-quality audio for free and without any interruption.

I always make video calls with my entire class using Skype for Business. As it allows up to 250 different users to be connected in one single call, that is just amazing. we usually use this feature to discuss the class.

Another feature I like about Skype for Business is the screen sharing feature, in which you can share your desktop with someone else, he can see everything in your screen without needing to be beside you, that is very helpful.

Also, I like to use the Whiteboard which is like a work-space that you can use to explain and draw things on it. You can make your own Poll and get your friends to vote and display the results.

Puntos en contra

Bottom line, nothing to hate or dislike about Skype for Business, it is just the perfect phone (or video) calls platform. Some people might hate to pay some money for more features but it is worth it!

Overall, it is an efficient and highly useful tool in an office environment, which works perfectly in Windows but needs a bit of improvement in MAC. It's instant, gives you everyone's status, so work can be planned, syncs with Outlook meetings and doesn't let anyone miss any notifications, which is crucial.

Puntos a favor

The messaging is instant and it indicates the availability of the users, which is helpful. What I like most about the tool is that it sends an email notification of any missed messages. That has saved me in many situations! It syncs up with Outlook and changes the availability according to the meetings. The tool is helpful while using a desktop/laptop as well as its mobile application, which I use it when I am away from my desk and still need to be connected. So, it can be used on the go too. The "Contact" feature is good, where I can create a contact group of my team and maybe favourite colleagues. That helps me arrange my contacts in a particular order and is also helpful during group conversations.

Puntos en contra

The tool has issues when using a MAC. The first and most frustrating issue is having multiple instances of a conversation with the same person. There should be one instance of a conversation with someone, which makes it easier to go back and search for something. However, in MAC, a new conversation line item opens for the same person every time they start a new conversation. It's hard to keep track of the chat flow.
The second and only issue is the absence of "In a Meeting" status in MAC. In MAC, the status changes to "Busy", every time there is a meeting. Hence, it's hard to distinguish when a person is busy with some work and when they are actually in a meeting. It's crucial at times to have an "In a meeting" status in an office environment and "Busy" just doesn't cut it.

Overall this is a good tool and I would recommend it to other companies; however, if you are out of the office a lot and need a quick chat function, I would not use this product. I would use basic text or Microsoft Teams instead. The syncing issues in conversations are enough to think twice about using this as a basic work chat option, but the other functions (calling/screensharing) are ok if you already are paying for other microsoft software and this is bundled in the price

Puntos a favor

Very easy to use and good features (chat/screen sharing/calls). This has helped us communicate better with our partners overseas, especially for conference calls and screen sharing. Great for internal use for chat and also to add external business partners for chat and conference calls/screen sharing. We have utilized this with our overseas partners from many different countries and it has worked well as an option for quick communication, instead of always using email for simple questions.

Puntos en contra

Very robotic sounding audio that happens frequently in meetings. The connectivity is ok, but the audio is terrible most of the time. We have tested this with multiple different settings and different places/users, but the audio is subpar at best and not really reliable. Also, switching from mobile to desktop, and back again, is terrible. The messages dont come through all of the time, leaving missed conversations and awkward discussions with external partners (this happens with internal employees too). The desktop dashboard also shows when you are on mobile, which is a terrible feature if you dont always want/need your team or clients to know where you are.

Skype is one such tool which provides so many facilities indie one package. It provides the services that could be found in five or six separate apps. Once the user downloads skype he or she is given the opportunity to get the services of five or six apps using this one app. Skype fills the distance between the relationships allowing to make long distance calls in a reasonable manner. It connects the people with their loved ones.

Puntos a favor

Skype is a hybrid messaging and voice communication platform which is capable of connecting users from different locations of the globe. This application is suitable for both personal and business platforms. According to the way how the people are using it the usage differs from the personal user or business use.
Skype provides the ability to make both video and audio calls, conferencing, group chats, sending instant messages and even file sharing. This one app provides all the facilities that can be found in five or six separate apps. Skype can be used from any device a phone, tablet or a computer .the only thing which is needed is good network coverage. Skype is platform independent that it supports both Mac and pc while it supports both iPhones and Android phones. And also users do not need to make any payment to use skype The basic version of Skype is free

Puntos en contra

Although the basic version of Skype is free when the users need to upgrade the versions users have to make a payment. In order to use skype users need to have a proper network connection. If the conversations are being taken place under poor network facilities the conversation might be disturbed and stuck in the middle of the conversation. Skype also can be used as one of the tools for cyberbullying.

Skype for business allows ease of communication and knowledge transfer without having to fly yourself to talk to someone, ship something to show, or attempt to describe things over the phone. Skype is the ideal platform for all business relationships, and what many people don't recognize is the importance of skype in the sciences. Skype cuts down the geographical boundaries many scientists can only overcome during conferences and saves money researchers would otherwise have to spend shipping something to show collaborators.

Puntos a favor

Skype is by far the best software for this technological age especially since so much of how we interact is online. When I was being interviewed for graduate school, Skype was how I got my foot in the door talking to certain professors or how I was interviewed for an international research opportunity. Skype makes businesses no longer require booking expensive flights and hotels just for a one-hour meeting. Or when talking with collaborators and wanting to show them some unusual result, instead of shipping the sample or sending a picture, skype allows you to simultaneously talk about the result while analyzing it on the skype video. Finally, it is also a great tool to keep families connected, particularly the feature to have multiple people on a skype call at once so you can include the whole family. Another feature that is extremely useful is its screen sharing abilities to walk someone step-by-step through something on your own computer screen without trying to describe it to them or sending pictures of each step.

Puntos en contra

I do wish on phones that people did not have to be logged into skype in order to hear whether they have a skype call from someone. I would like it if skype worked similarly to facetime and notifies you on your phone regardless of being open.
