9 Free No Download, No Login Skype Alternatives

Skype is probably the most popular video-chatting software out there. It’s so popular that it’s become its own verb. Now people use “video-chatting” and “Skyping” interchangeably whether they’re using Skype specifically or not.

Here’s a fun fact:

Skype’s originally proposed name was “Sky Peer-to-Peer” which then became what we know today as Skype.

Despite the popularity of this application some people are actively searching for alternatives that are easy to use. Maybe you’re one of them.

Whatever your reasons we won’t judge you. In fact, we’re helping you with this list of Skype Alternatives that you can use in your browser –free and easy.
