Skype: We Still Exist

Amidst the rise of many video conferencing platforms like FaceTime, HouseParty, and Zoom, Skype, despite it dominating the video conferencing field in the early 2010s, is largely ignored, as if it’s non-existent, and that’s why it reminded us recently that it still exists through a tweet that introduced a new feature to the video conferencing app: Skype Meet Now.

Skype Meet Now lets you generate a meeting URL that you can send to participants. It was easy to use in the web-based client. However, when I selected the option of opening the Skype app, the meeting wouldn't open and I was left with an eternally spinning wheel of death that I just had to exit out of.

But how did Skype lose its dominance on the video calling field? Find out over at Mashable.

They lost their dominance once other platforms offered voice calling. They lost it when they decided to revamp the interface and fill it with ads. They lost it for real when they went all flat with Windows 8 style windows and took half the functionality out of the program.

They blew it. Others do it better these days, and without the ads in most cases.
