    an important point for comparison: availability on various machines. whatapp for example only works on the computer when the phone is close. if you loose the phone, there is no way to register whatsapp on another machine until you get a new SIM. Skype does not only work on any machine but simultaneously: you can type on one, speak on another (with the same registration) and even: if you talk on one and someone calls you, the call goes to the other machine

    to be dependent on a phone number is terrible for those who travel and end up passing the local number + the whatsapp number to people the meet.

  • Matthias Grob on 2018-12-31 18:07:31

    this is a helpful comparison but completely missleading in one aspect: to call a phone means to call anyone who has a phone number, including land lines Whatsapp and most others can not do it, but f. ex. Skype can

    The best messaging app for business and group chatting is Skype because it comes with a lot of security and also trustable. Anyone have an issue or query related to Skype follow the Microsoft Professional Support here by following this you can solve all errors related to Skype, Microsoft Office etc.
