Re: Microsoft is Killing Skype Classic on September 1 -


What is zoom like for home use, is it windows mobile and other things.

Could I use it well enough in a client?

Does it have a pro package with credits like skype, could I tie a skype account to it?

I am now interested in another non microsoft pc solution which is not skype, if it can use skype accounts fine, google to, but with ms anouncement today from thurrot I can't exactly see me using their software any more.

I remember 3.8 had 8 k audio all the time. It has been forever since quality has gone that low on skype for me *since* Microsoft bought it.

Go mobile, even on relatively good LTE, and team talk audio is so bad you can't use it. It takes nothing to make you break up whereas team speak has such a huge buffer you could probably talk in a stereo channel on satellite. Very latent, but doable. I have played around with the transmit interval on team talk to no avail.

I use zoom for work, but have yet to be mobile with it so am curious on how it will handle that. I have a lot of rural areas that get excellent HSPA coverage which should be more than enough for any audio communication, yet team talk struggles like crazy. Frustrating.

Well I use Skype and TT on my PC not in a mobile environment due to a Android phone that has 8 GB of memory. I do 99.9 percent of my stuff on said PC with a 200 MBPS download speed on my Spectrum connection. Skype technologies SA should never should have sold their souls to the devil AKA MS. V 4.X had great audio. MS broke it.

Maybe it is for you. Not everyone needs high quality audio for voice communication, using tons of mobile internet that they don't have. I have used zoom, and I see absolutely 0 difference in audio quality. Mostly because of internal microphones with noise suppression enabled.

If I were a podcaster I’d use Zoom or TT. Sorry, but I standby what I said. The audio is crap.

The audio quality is fine. It’s not zoom quality but I can understand what’s beeing said, and if I can do my job still Ill take it. I am actually loving skype and I do use it on my vodcasts.

I'm not exactly a fan of the new version of skype.  If I can figure
out how to invite multiple people to a skype call, that would be
great.  However, I can use this new version of skype ok. Granted, I
don't like it as well as 7.4, but I can use it.

I used to use that on days of dial-up and Windows 98.

I used GW Connect for a while, but now, even the patch doesn't
seem to work.
  I installed it on one of my machines a few nights ago, but it
wouldn't even
let me see my contacts.  This is truly sad, as it was great
software.  I
don't know why Microsoft is forcing everyone to use their software,
especially when it's not even fully accessible!
Usually, I use S Portable, which is a portable version of regular
Skype 7 if
I remember correctly.  Granted, I don't really like the interface
either, especially as I have to use Task Manager to close the
program, but
at least it's better than the one that my friend has on his
laptop!  I tried
it and got a headache!  Here is the link to S Portable.

Personally, I liked MSN/Windows Live Messenger better than all of
the above,
as it was simple, fast, and in its earlier days, didn't include
all sorts of
unnecessary features!  Now, I must find an accessible alternative
to Skype.

All the best,
