Skype

App

Skype is an all-in-one communication app for internet telephony. It’s a feature-packed app that allows users to make voice and video calls, send text and voice messages, share images and documents, and conduct video conference calls. The Skype app started in August of 2003 when the team headed by the Swedish nationals Niklas Zennstrom and Dane Janus Friis released the first desktop version of the program. The user base of the application rose exponentially in the first two years of its release. And by September of 2005, the e-commerce giant eBay decided to purchase Skype at $2.6 billion making it one of the most successful apps ever developed. In September 2009, a Canadian investment corporation agreed to acquire 65% of Skype from eBay. This placed Skype’s enterprise market value to $2.92 billion. Microsoft then took Skype from eBay in a deal worth $8.5 billion made on May of 2011. Since then, Skype has been a flagship product of the Microsoft Corporation. The Skype mobile app is free to download although in-app purchases are available to get Skype credits. The credits could be used to avail premium features like Skype to landline calls, having local landline number attached to Skype, and unlimited call services for some countries. Skype to Skype messaging and calls are free for all users. The video conferencing feature, which is one of the reasons for Skype’s popularity, is also free for everyone. As of 2015, Skype has an average of more than 300 million active users per month. The app has also reached the 1 billion landmark in downloads.
