Glip vs Skype

One of the best Skype alternatives—and it’s free.

Teams using the RingCentral App to communicate through video and chat.

Get more than just internet calling

Skype made a name for itself as the app to use when you wanted to make a long-distance phone call for free. And sure, it’s still good for internet-based calls, but what if you need a full-fledged team messaging app? What if you’re looking for task management features and file storage?

A Skype alternative that’s designed to get down to business

Everything your team needs

With some free tools, your team might need other additional apps for stuff like integrated task management, file storage, and meeting recordings. With Glip, you don’t have to pay for separate tools to do those things—they come included already!

A free tool that grows with you

Even as your team grows and you need more out of Glip, it continues to cost, well, pretty much the same. Need to create more teams? No matter how many teams you create in your Glip workspace, it’s still free. Need to have more conversations or more tasks? Yep, still free.

Integrate away

Yet another reason to choose Glip over Skype is that it lets you integrate with third-party apps. Already using apps like Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365, or Google Workspace? Glip can pull alerts and updates from those apps right into any team conversation, keeping you up to date without disrupting your workflow or making you toggle between different apps throughout the day.

Super-organized task management

One of the most important parts of your workday (other than communication) is actually getting work done, of course. In Glip, you can create and assign tasks to teammates and yourself, set deadlines, and knock off those to-dos one by one.
