"Make free Skype-to-Skype calls, and call phones at Skype rates"

Reviewed by / Nov 27, 2014

Skype mobile version. Use your Internet connection to make calls cheaper.

Skype was one of the great inventions brought us by the Internet and it was something we were expecting to apply to our phones.

Despite in its early days there were a bunch of bugs including an outrageous battery drain, it has been clearly enhanced in the last few years. Now, interface is neater and more user-friendly. Sound and video quality is way better; not excellent though but still over average. Anyway, it's always recommended to use it over WiFi since your data plan could be committed.

Texting has been enhanced too with a bubble-like layout, group chat and push notifications. However, that's not its strongest points. We are missing stickers, more emojis, a more intuitive file sharing and an activity timeline.

Hands down, if calls and video calls is what you need, Skype is still one of the best apps you can install on your device.

    This is a great version of Skype. Call quality is very clear. The only thing it's missing is video support, which I assume will come soon, as more Android devices come out with front-facing cameras.
