We want Skype to be reliable, fast, easy to use, and in most cases – free.
It works for Moms and Dads, teachers, soldiers, kids and sisters, brothers, grandparents, lovers and old friends all over the world.
In the last few days we have seen reports in the media we believe are inaccurate and could mislead the Skype community about our approach to user security and privacy. At Skype, we continue to be humbled and grateful for the commitment to our product that we see from our truly global user community.
We focus every day on building the best possible product for sharing experiences whenever people are apart.
Our growth during the last nine years shows we are on the right path, and to our entire community, we say “thank you.” We are privileged to serve 250 million active users each month and support 115 billion minutes of person to person live communications in the last quarter alone.
We believe that communication is a fundamental human need and that while we’ve been privileged with tremendous success we are just scratching the surface of the communications experiences that we plan to create. It is no small technical challenge to make sure that people can connect whenever and wherever they wish.
We are committed to doing a great job at both – providing a phenomenal experience for all users, and acting as a responsible global citizen.
