When it comes to VOIP services, Skype seems to be one of the most popular platforms utilized by people for free voice and video callings, as well as messaging services. In an attempt to challenge its dominance over the last years, Google has launched a new tool called Hangouts in May 2013 aimed at offering clients similar services in terms of free instant messaging, file sharing, voice and video calls or integration.
For a more head-to-head comparison, the guys over at CloudPro have posted an useful review, which includes both tools’ features, including a pricing factor, so you can understand better their pros and cons. As regards to features, Skype has announced at the end of December 2014, the new Translator that comes with the capacity to deliver real-time translation between two users of Skype accounts, eliminating any language barrier.
According to The Fuse Joplin, Google replies to Microsoft’s Skype translator with an integration of its Translate feature to the Hangouts apps, meaning that one user will be able to communicate in an easier way with someone else who doesn’t understand his native language. No information yet about the number of languages supported, but it is expected to cover a large number of important languages, knowing that Google has already this feature.
