Skype Users Utilize well over 2 Billion Minutes a Day

Have you ever wondered that what is it about Skype that makes it the first choice for connecting with their loved ones in the Virtual world? Well, there are plenty of good reasons. As for now, it is time to celebrate as Skype users use more than 2 billion minutes a day! And this is an astronomical figure. This actually equals to 1,3,88,000 days. Isn’t that amazing?

Skype is an important part of our daily life. Whether we want to connect for personal use or business, it is true that most users prefer spending time on Skype connecting with each other, making use of voice call or chat services. The vice president of Microsoft’s Skype Division, Elisa Steele, is excited to learn about these figures.

With digits like these, it is clear that Skype is used not only for special occasions but regular conversations too. People are connecting over work, home while commuting and just about anywhere. The 2 million minutes a day strengthens the fact that the communication hub is used for sharing and passing important information across any part of the planet.

With Microsoft already in the process of phasing out its vintage Windows Live Messenger service and moving the users over to Skype, these numbers could further rise. Microsoft plans to do away with Messenger in favor of Skype by November. The upgrade will start officially on Windows next week.

It is clear that there is nothing now that can slow down Skype or the team at this well popular communication hub. The team constantly researches on and looks for new ways to improve the way people connect and share over web. It seems your Skype experience is going to get a lot better in the coming years.
