Until now Microsoft wasn't touching Skype and most people continue to use it. But if MS take just one mistake step - there is a crowd of services that want to replace Skype as a defacto-standard of Internet communications. And the first in this crowd is Viber. This service gained considerable popularity (over 200 million users) thanks to mobile-first strategy and simple authorization via mobile number. And at the moment Viber and Skype are virtually identical in their features. Recently Viber eliminated, perhaps, the last gap - added the ability to call landline and mobile phones at cheap rates. Rates (as expected) - are slightly lower than Skype. For example, 2.5 cents to Indian landlines (4.5 cents to mobile phones), 2.3 cents to Mexico (9.9 cents to mobile), 2.3 cents to all China numbers and 1.9 cents to the U.K. (5.9 cents to mobile). This new feature works on Android, iPhone and Viber dektop (PC and Mac).
