Skype Turns 10 – First Decade of Daily Conversations (infographic)

Sep 18, 2013 11:30 AM ET

Please join us in celebrating a decade of Skype! Thanks to you – our users around the world – Skype has brought millions of people together even when they are apart. It’s amazing that more than 1.4 trillion minutes of voice and video calls have been made using Skype. That’s the equivalent of more than 2.6 million years of conversations made in only ten years’ time!

During this time, you’ve used Skype to do some incredible things, and shared amazing stories with us. You’ve made Skype calls from the top of Mount Everest and research stations in Antarctica, provided essential support to refugee camps while keeping in touch with loved ones back home, and even seen orangutans enjoy video calls. It’s truly a small miracle that troops in the field get to witness the birth of their children and entire classrooms get to take the ultimate field trip to the opposite ends of the earth. We feel so privileged to have been part of these experiences and never cease to be amazed with all the ways the world uses Skype!

The infographic takes you through a decade of fascinating people, places and behaviors Skype has inspired.
