Today, we are excited to celebrate that our Skype users – YOU – are spending more than 2 billion minutes connecting with each other! 2 BILLION MINUTES!
But just how big is 2 billion minutes, you ask?
That’s enough time to travel to the moon and back over 225 thousand times, walk around Earth more than 845 times or travel to Mars more than 5,400 times.
2 billion minutes is more than 33 million hours of people singing, laughing, joking and staying in touch. That means 1,388,000 days of togetherness which make up more than 3,805 years of sharing or nearly 38 centuries of time spent on Skype in one day.
Thank you for making Skype a part of your daily life. With numbers like these, it’s clear that Skype is for more than just for special occasions – it’s for being together with those who matter most – at work, at home and anywhere in between. With Skype you can connect with the people you care about most on any device – PCs, iPhones, iPads, Kindle Fires, Androids, Macs, Windows Phones and even TVs.
2 billion minutes is a testament to our users who are making Skype the everyday communications hub that brings people together. This massive amount of connection – enough time to watch 1.6 million movies – is also a testament to the hard work of our product teams who have enabled these great experiences. Whether making a voice or video call, sending an instant message, sharing a file or connecting with a group of friends, now more than ever before, Skype brings people together whenever they are apart.
But we’re not done yet! We’re constantly looking for even more ways for people to connect and share – from the living room to the board room, on the go, anytime, anywhere. Find us on Facebook and Twitter (@Skype) and tell us how you’ve spent some of those 2 billion minutes with hashtag #2billion.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us – keep it coming! We will continue to improve your Skype experience.
