  1. Yes this is a challenge for skype from Google. But I don’t think they can win this. I am skype user and I must tell onething, Skype is really awesome in voice clarity, picture clarity and video clarity. So why do i choose not to use this?

  2. Google is trying hard for things other than search engine . Let see what will happen can they win with skype
