Has Messenger rendered Skype obsolete?

Recommended Posts

Wondering on this week's Poll. I still use Skype since I don't really use Facebook or Messenger. What do you guys Think?

I used to have Skype signed in all the time like the Windows Live Messenger days. Now I don't even use it. It's all Messenger now.

Same, Messenger has effectively replaced it, and not many of my friends use Skype. However, i think it still remains, especially in the business side of things. Any companies more concerned with security will be using Microsoft's solution, while everyone else will be using Google Hangouts and things like that.

I don't even have it installed haha. But everyone in Hong Kong uses it, and all the HKers who live in Canada.

Not everyone is on Facebook and Skype has its business uses. It's also more secure than Facebook.

That's probably the biggest appeal in addition to Google Hangouts.

I think this is more of a privacy issue, but yeah it's probably more impression than anything else.

Skype has end to end encryption.

True. I'm personally not too concerned people intercepting my texts/calls though... probably have bigger issues at hand if I'm being monitored.
