Skype has been one of the most established apps when it comes to the markets of communication technology. The Microsoft owned Skype Messenger has been used by millions of users across the world and has been the mainstay when it comes to business communication. The app has been updated and upgraded several times, and in light of recent competition from Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, Skype is using many of its casual users. The company, in an attempt to retain users, has now introduced a new move – an improved file sharing system.
Following the latest Skype update, users can now share files even when the users are offline, as well as send files up to as much as 300MB in size. This is indeed a considerate move from the company and will help them in the long run.
Share, even if your friends are offline – from today, as long as you’re using the latest version of the app, you can share files, photos, documents and videos of up to 300MB with friends and groups even if they’re offline. So, now you can share a holiday video and go straight back to the beach, knowing that your friends and family can download the video whenever they come online—while you’re out enjoying the sunshine!
Collect a file more than once, on multiple devices – you can now pick up a file multiple times on different devices. Imagine you’re on your way home and want to start reviewing a PowerPoint document on your phone, and then download it again to make edits on a computer at home.
Skype has been making many other changes too. The company has introduced web-based Skype meetings as a feature for Small businesses which run Skype, which allows simultaneous video chat with 10 people for first 60 days, and with three people post that.
