        Skype is one of the better methods I've found for IM communication, and most of my clients have it. Mostly use it when there is a need for screensharing.

        Skype is far by one of the best video calling apps I've ever used(After Google Duo) It has a very simple User Interface, hence is a favorite of mine.
