Teamspeak Vs. Skype
Although Skype is a very popular voice over IP software, the latest TeamSpeak version seems to be better in almost every way. While some online gamers may consider TeamSpeak to be overkill, especially if they have websites, the truth is that TeamSpeak remains one of the most complete software for real-time online communication and here is why:
- Unlike Skype, TeamSpeak 3 does not have background noise. In fact, TeamSpeak has probably the best audio quality you can find anywhere when it comes to VOIP software.
- With Skype you need to ‘add people’ in order to be able to call them. This is not only a useless process but you will end up having a huge list of people you don’t talk to anymore.
- What some people find very attractive about TeamSpeak 3 is that it offers first party support for iPhone and Android devices. You can install clients directly on your mobile devices and the services will work flawlessly.
- TeamSpeak 3 offers the invite buddy option. This means that you can invite friends with a single click as long as they have TeamSpeak 3 installed on their computer.
- TeamSpeak 3 offers a 3D sound feature. Therefore if you have a surround sound system then you will be able to position individual groups of people anywhere around you. This feature can be extremely helpful when it comes to online gaming where group cooperation is needed.
- TeamSpeak 3 also offers a file sharing feature. This way you can send and receive just about any type of files you want such as PDF documents, videos, screenshots or whatever.
- The TeamSpeak 3 client can be customized with cool skins and you can also install several addons for increased functionality.
- Although Skype also features a conference mode, with TeamSpeak 3 more people can join the same conference at the same time.
- TeamSpeak 3 has a better response time than Skype and it is also more user-friendly. Last but not least, Skype is also more resource intensive. It has a higher bandwidth usage and uses more CPU resources.
