What’s the difference between Skype and Pumble?

Search browser

Skype offers basic message searching inside groups. Your voice messages, videos, and call recordings are available for up to 30 days.

In Pumble, you can search channels, group and direct chats by entering a keyword or applying filters to find specific messages, for free forever.

Skype alternative - unlimited message history

Use of threads

Skype messaging doesn’t have threads like Pumble. You can respond to messages by quoting them, but the responses don’t appear as part of a thread, making it hard to follow discussions.

In a Pumble channel, you can choose to reply directly to someone’s comment and start a new thread. This helps keep conversations on-topic and channels uncluttered.

Customer support

Skype doesn't offer any kind of customer support.

Pumble Help page is always available for all potential and current users. In addition, the support team is online 24/7 for all questions and doubts.
