    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.....
