    Simplest & quickest video conferencing option ?


    Really struggling to find something to replace the original excellent Skype now that Microsoft has gone and messed it all up with non stop crashes and so on.

    I've tried a few but none of them are as simple and straightforward as the old Skype used to be, so any suggestions much appreciated....

    Thanks

    You can still download the Skype for desktop version; works fine.

    Google Hangouts. It's free and works very well, even better than Skype, in my opinion. It also allows more than one to one for free. Web-browser-based, so there's no extra software required.

    Thanks, but finally gave up in sheer frustration in the end as Microsoft unbelievably kept saying incorrect password even when trying to log in as a fresh new member (!) and more of their same old muddled idiocies.....
