Wire: stunning Skype alternative

Wire is from the same people who brought us Skype before Microsoft bought the service. One of the prominent backers is┬áJanus Friis who was also the co-founder of Skype. Wire has some innovative features that makes it a possible competitor to Skype though it’s in the market quite late.

Features

  • Clean and simple interface
  • Text, voice, video support, including group conversations
  • Import Gmail contacts
  • Full functional web interface (unlike Skype at the time of writing)
  • Share text, pictures, GIFs, HD audio
  • SoundCloud and YouTube integration

  • End-to-end encryption for all voice calls (uses SRTP with DTLS), encryption to and from data centres for all its messages and media (uses TLS)
