Skype 8.25 advantages
Let’s discuss some advantages of Skype 8.25 as compared to Skype Classic
The earlier versions of Skype used to save chat history on the local computer. This meant that if Windows got corrupted, Skype history would be lost. This is not the case now. Skype 8.25 is cloud based and synchronizes chat history with Microsoft servers.
Another advantage of using Skype 8.25 or above is encryption. Like, WhatsApp, Skype also supports end to end encryption but you need to be running Skype 8.14 or higher.
Some features of Skype include the following:
Free international calls: You can make free Skype to Skype calls and also Skype to international Phone calls at a very low price.
You can call people in other countries with Skype (Paid).
You can sms anywhere internationally using Skype (Paid).
You can make video calls using Skype.
You can also receive calls using Skype. Skype number cost is usually very low depending upon the number and country you select.
You can transfer files using Skype. Skype file transfer size limit is 300 MB. You can send as many files as you want but the file size should not exceed 300 MB.
