Skype Classic for Windows 7
Chat with your friends and Facebook contacts with Skype 8

Skype Classic is the previous release of the popular portable VoIP, instant messaging and chat tool.

Skype enables you to check what's going on with your friends, add comments and update your own status. And another click gives access to your phonebook, from where you can text or call your Facebook friends (free of charge, if they're also Skype users, potentially a real money-saver).

The program also currently includes a group video calling feature. This lets you have a video chat with more than two people, intelligently moving the focus to the person who's speaking so it's easy to follow the conversation.

If you've had problems with connection quality before then you'll appreciate the new call quality manager, which monitors performance during a call and provides help on resolving problems.

And while poor quality calls might be down to line or internet issues that you can't control, Skype now includes automatic call recovery, which quickly reconnects you when a connection has failed.

Note that this is the Classic version of Skype v7.

Verdict:

For both home and office users, Skype is an incredibly valuable tool and the latest additions are great improvements.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
