Windows Phone: Windows Central readers embrace Skype, WhatsApp to stay connected

Windows Phone:

A whole lot of people are spending a lot of time inside during the current global health crisis, which means we’re all relying on messaging and video calling apps more than usual. We asked you to chime in with how you were staying in touch with friends and family while stuck inside this week. While there were a lot of different apps to pick from, there were two clear winners: Skype and WhatsApp.

In total, our (admittedly casual) poll garnered 526 responses, with Skype and WhatsApp netting 110 (20.91 percent) and 103 (19.58 percent) votes, respectively. Following those up were phone calls and Facebook Messenger, which received 80 (15.21 percent) and 59 (11.22 percent) votes. The rest of the field was made up of the generic “other” category, FaceTime, Zoom, Houseparty, and Google Hangouts / Duo.
