Skype tries to take advantage of controversy with WhatsApp and ends up ‘listening’ to what it didn’t want

WhatsApp has been involved in a controversial grid in recent weeks thanks to a change in its privacy policies that allow greater interference from Facebook in application data outside the European Union.

Several rival companies have benefited from this news, with platforms like Telegram or Signal seeing significant increases in their number of users.

Who also tried to take advantage of the wave of opposition to WhatsApp was Skype, which in an attempt to remain relevant in the midst of all this discussion resorted to social networks to stress the differences between its product and the competing offer.

Skype’s criticism of WhatsApp did not have the desired effect

For the sake of their sins things did not go as desired, with countless users criticizing the service offered by the Microsoft application.

Responses to the tweet are as varied as possible, with many highlighting the limitations of Skype or even calling the application “fossil.”

Obviously there were also those who took the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of other companies that offer similar services, putting Skype on the back burner where it has been for several years.

One of the issues raised has to do with the very existence of Skype, with the recurring question whether Microsoft Teams is not what Skype has always tried to be and never managed.

A serious case of backfire

More curious and perhaps imprudent is the fact that those responsible for the team included in the publication a link to the Microsoft privacy statement, where it is said that the Skype uses data collected by third parties.

If you don’t remember, privacy and data collection is one of the reasons that has put WhatsApp and Facebook under fire and has led so many people to look for alternatives.

There is always the argument that at least Skype does not sell data to third parties, but the truth is that advertising is not part of its business model.

At this moment there seem to be more valid alternatives capable of offering a more complete service and adapted to modern requirements, so this initiative was just another shot in the foot of Skype.
