Skype vs Webex: What are the differences?

Skype: Voice calls, instant messaging, file transfer, and video conferencing. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are; Webex: Connect with anyone, anywhere, any time. Collaborate with colleagues across your organization, or halfway across the planet. Meet online and share files, information, and expertise. Collaborate from wherever you are with WebEx mobile apps for IPhone, iPad, Android, or Blackberry. If you can get online, you can work together.

Skype and Webex belong to "Web and Video Conferencing" category of the tech stack.

          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.
