Video Quality

I must say that Skype has maintained the quality. And so far everything that is being done is good enough. Some of the time it can be a bit harder to handle. And we have to understand where things can work around.

Mature.

The thing with Skype is that it is matured way of making video calls and very good when professional matters are what we are talking about. The thing is that you rarely see any company say that they want to make calls with clients via Facebook video call which shows that Skype is better and professional.

Better Better Better

There is no two ways about choosing between Facebook messenger video call and Skype video call, I will always pick Facebook messenger video call anytime, any day and anywhere. It's very easy to use, there is no extra lesson or charge to use the application for both chat and video calls.

Facebook Messenger Video Call

One of the many things I like about Facebook is the Messenger Call and Video Call service which is quite easy to use. You can even message the person first via messenger or through Facebook comments to let a person know that you would him.

I've moved to Facebook Messenger

I used to be an avid Skype user, but these days it's so much easier to use Facebook Messenger. Skype seems a bit outdated and far less used by people I know these days.

Facebook

I don't use either of them, but if I had to choose I would choose Facebook Messenger or as my friends call it "face time". There is so much you can do with the Facebook video messenger and can have multiple chats with a group of friends.

More contacts

I am using facebook massenger right now. I have a skype account before but I am not using it as of today. I must say in our place messenger is much popular than skype. Lots of my family and friends have messenger account but nit all of them have skype account, so I have more contacts at my messenger than skype.

Facebook

I choose facebook messenger cause I use it everyday. Most people use it today for chatting and for video calls that's why it is more convenient to use and it offer a lot of features unlike skypee where it's service is like limited only for video chating and I think it's not that popular today unlike the old days.

I prefer the Facebook video call since it is very easy to use and affordable to use video to chat with friends , all these are possible after you have simply downloaded the Facebook Messenger application and you are good to go.

It's very obvious that most people would prefer Facebook messenger video call because it's very popular and much more easier to use unlike Skype. I can bet that most recent generation aren't used to Skype like how they are used to Facebook messenger video call. Personally, I'm all for Facebook messenger video even though I have used Skype couple of times.

You sound like me. I find facebook messenger more useful than any other messaging apps or voip apps. It is simple and easy to use. Since these days most of the people are already on facebook (facebook as more than one bullion users), you can find who ever you want to talk on facebook.

It depends on what you will use it for. Facebook video call is more user friendly and more people in our country I think has access to it as compared to Skype. But when it comes to functionality, Skype is better and you can use it for business purposes and freelance jobs like online tutorial. For personal use, I'd go for Facebook because not all my friends have Skype but other than that it will be Skype.

Yeah I agree with you. Skype is more popular for business usage. I also have limited contacts on my skype account so I rarely use it before and now I am not using it at all because a lot of people are on facebook messenger now.

It's true what you just mentioned. Most people just have few people on Skype and it literally limits how they use Skype for personal use in terms of communicating with friends and family. A lot of people are making use of Facebook messenger and it makes it more convenient and easier to reach lots of friends without stressing much.

Exactly! Purpose of usage is what determines which application for video calls would be more effective and efficient as well as appropriate for the job. When it's just to connect with friends and family, Facebook messenger video call would be appropriate but when it's for business purposes, Skype would be best suited for the job.

I have used skype in the past, however, these days I am not using skype. I agree with you regarding your view on who can benefit from skype. You can use skype for communication related to business, whereas for personal communication facebook messenger os better.

Most of the female friends I have on my Facebook messenger contact list are more attached to video calls than chat. I asked one of them one day and she told me that it takes too long to type chats. The call is just easier to express yourself without breaking a sweat. It's only when the environment is not conducive for video calls that she would go for typing chats.

I use skype for business related communication and facebook messenger mostly for personal communication. I also use facebook messenger for business communication because I have lot of business associated as friends on facebook. based on my experience, I think facebook messenger is a better communication option whether you are using for text based chats or video calls.

I use Skype for business purposes and work related issues meanwhile my Facebook messenger is for chatting and video calling for friends, family and loved ones. If you have a good and stable Internet connection, Skype is a lot better for it's clear reception and image. However, if you are using a mobile data, Facebook messenger is better to use because it uses less bandwidth than Skype.

Never tried Facebook messenger video call, so I don't have a comparison point. I've always used Skype for video calls, because it works for me, my Internet service makes it run fine, and at least over here, I don't have to pay for using it. Also, it works good for business purposes, because Facebook server seems to be really crowded sometimes, so Skype is a very good option. To be honest, I've tried other servers beside Skype and Facebook, that can also be really helpful.

I would choose Facebook Messenger Video Call. I have a difficult time staying connected and having clear video when I was using Skype. Not sure if it is just my laptop or internet signal that is causing this to my Skype connection. For Facebook Messenger Video Call, I find the video for on time and clear. I can connect easily whether using laptop or my mobile phone.

Facebook Messenger is better since it is more user friendly. It is better designed for phones which is a great thing since you can answer video calls anywhere and everywhere as long as you have data or internet.

I find skype video call feature lot better compared to the facebook. You can see that facebook is buggy. And it does not have the good features like skype as of now. And it can be really hard in that case. You just have to use the one which is more matured. Though facebook does not allow calls in real phone. I think video is good enough for now.

Actually before, I used to use the skype for video calling when the messenger was still a simple messenger without video call, honestly it's hard to connect on skype, and I got always disconnected sometimes and I don't know why, good thing that the Facebook messenger finally feature this video call, and I found out that this messenger is much more better than to skype.
