Skype Portable Review

Tina de Pierre
A portable, no-install version of the popular VoIP and IM program
A review of Skype Portable by Tina de Pierre

With "Skype Portable", you can make internet telephone PC-to-PC or PC-to-Phone calls easily on the go.

As a portable application, Skype Portable does not require installation, making it suitable to be run off of a USB device such as a memory stick or portable hard drive.

As with the regular version of Skype, Skype Portable can be used to call up to 25 different people simultaneously. It supports both video and audio calls and can also send text-based messages just like regular Skype.

Some of the positive points of using both Skype Portable and Skype include the high audio quality of calls and the ease of making video calls. Unfortunately, the bad part: Microsoft has moved Skype from a peer-to-peer model to one that uses centralized servers; as a partner of the NSA and possibly GCHQ, the privacy of calls made on Skype Portable cannot be guaranteed.

Skype Portable can make VoIP calls, text chat, call landlines and cell phones, chat with groups, video conference and send SMS messages.

Skype Portable features and highlights:
  • Free Skype-to-Skype calls
  • Call phones and mobiles, send SMS
  • Free instant messaging
  • Voicemail
  • Free video call
  • Forward calls to a phone when you’re offline
