On Skype

Skype logo


In the past two weeks, I’ve received a number of requests to research Skype for business-to-business and business-to-other voice and video communication. Our team tested Skype last week on iPhone, iPad and computer. Skype worked well in all cases, and audio was the best on the iPad. The test team had some difficulties to hear me on an iPhone, but were able to hear me with clarity on my iPad (in the same location as my iPhone).

We did test video conferencing with three people, and found that group conferencing worked only with audio. We’ll test group communication with Skype beta software next, and will add Blackberry to the test plan.

So far, Skype works great in all cases. Some of my friends were overseas during the Iceland volcano, and Skype worked great for many days. Good quality and (significant) cost avoidance from using international mobile voice plans.

Anyone else using Skype in the workplace?
