Skype is a well-known chatting platform that’s gained a strong foothold in the video-call industry, having been in the game since 2003. The radical changes worldwide in the way we’ve started working and communicating due to the coronavirus pandemic, however, have contributed to the surge in popularity of another video-call application: Zoom.

According to some reports, the number of daily users of Zoom jumped from 10 million to 200 million as people began working from home in the wake of COVID-19’s spread, making it the leading video-conference client in the United States. This attention raises the question of whether Skype is still better than Zoom, despite the growing popularity of the latter. Take a look at how both stack up against each other.
