    How developers use Skype and Zoom

    Zoom is a video conferencing service that helps us work as a remote team. We typically do quick one-on-one meetings with zoom, and a weekly group huddle where we can share our screens and see everyone on the conference in a grid view. One of the reasons we prefer it over other solutions is that it has a really great screen share and remote control feature. The video quality is very high, and as a remote team we can do the occasional pair programming with remote control feature.

    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.
