WhatsApp gold over skype
In a group of messaging apps vying to unseat Skype, WhatsApp has emerged as the front-runner during the past couple of years. They have added a number of features in an effort to become a more comprehensive mobile messaging solution since being acquired by Facebook. The hundreds of millions of WhatsApp users have generally embraced the most recent changes, despite the fact that some may argue that some of the capabilities are ones that rival services have had for some time.
Recent updates to the الواتس الذهبي
iOS app include the option to archive chats, the addition of descriptions to photographs that are attached, and several new app wallpapers. While the majority of these capabilities have long been accessible on Android, some of them, like the ability to share slow-motion videos made with the iPhone 5S, are only available on iOS. Even within the programmer itself, users can cut the video down to a tolerable length.
The introduction of read receipts for texts is one aspect that has drawn some criticism. Users may currently only tell if a message has been sent to the recipient’s device by looking for a double grey tick mark. The message will now display blue tick marks to show that they have been read. While some users objected to the invasion of their privacy, others embraced it because the majority of other platforms also have this option.
WhatsApp still has a long way to go to catch up to Skype in two important areas: voice/video calling and a desktop app—despite recent enhancements. Skype is the “go to” application for millions of less tech-savvy individuals who want to communicate online. Even while rivals like Google and Apple have already implemented VoIP calling into their individual platforms, WhatsApp has previously promised that it would do the same. Messages on the WhatsApp platform are currently only available to registered users. Once VoIP calling is available, the business might provide packages of messages or minutes to allow communication with people who do not use WhatsApp. Such a move would increase market share and solidify WhatsApp’s position as the most popular messaging software across several markets, with millions of users sending billions of messages each day.
Although Facebook may have plans to integrate payments into the service, الواتس الذهبي
has consistently insisted that it will remain a tool for communication and not for the delivery of material.
The fact that Skype is available for every imaginable platform, including PC, contributes to its appeal. WhatsApp has so far obstinately refused to expand outside of the mobile space, which is soon becoming a disadvantage even though it contributed to the app’s explosive surge to popularity. A desktop software is desperately needed for users whose jobs compel them to spend the majority of the day in front of computers. WhatsApp may successfully compete with Skype if these two issues are resolved.
