How to send photos or other files on Skype using a computer or mobile device

  • You can send any kind of file using Skype on your desktop. On your phone, you can only send photos.
  • To send files on the Skype desktop app, you can simply drag files into the app.
  • Skype has a 300 MB limit on files that can be shared.

Skype makes it easy to share files with your contacts, whether you’re in a chat, conference, or call. On a desktop computer, you can share any kind of file, but if you’re using a phone, your options are more limited.

How to send files on Skype using the desktop app

Open the Skype app and begin a text chat with the person you want to share a file with.

There are two ways to share the file:

  • Find the file on your desktop and drag it into the Skype app. You should see a message in Skype that says “Drop file or contact details to send.” After you drop the file in the app, click the Send message arrow to complete the transfer.

You can send more than one file at a time, but note that you have a maximum file size limit of 300MB. If you try sending larger files, you will see an error message.

Also, if you are in a video chat or conference meeting, you need to open the chat window to send a file.

Top 5 programming languages for mobile app developers to learn

These languages will help current and new mobile application developers navigate the programming landscape to code apps that are stable, secure, and compatible with modern mobile architectures.

As I have said previously, I’m no fan of programming or app development. I don’t find myself to be very good at it, but I am truly in awe of what can be accomplished with properly written applications, especially when the applications leverage network and cloud-based technologies to provide enhanced functionality and reporting capability while offering cross-platform support.

There are colleagues of mine who have always shown this ability to tap into a program’s APIs to create helpful dashboards that can be rolled into mobile apps, allowing them to keep tabs of a number of systems or an entire site—all from their smartphones—including integrated push notifications to alert them of potential issues in real time. All this can be created by their hands using software development tools and a little coding know-how.

For those who share my colleagues’ skills—or wish to—I have collected the top five programming languages for mobile app developers to learn, allowing you to create modern applications that run natively on specific operating systems and hardware types. Or they can be made software/hardware agnostic by creating them as web-based apps and hosted from a web server to run on any supported browser.

Java

Since its inception, Java has been the language of choice for mobile app development centered around Google’s Android platform. Java is a highly popular programming language that allows for cross-platform support and ease of portability when creating apps for multiple OSes and hardware types. There’s a saying that Java applications are Write Once Run Anywhere (WORA), since this code can be expected to run

Liberia Orange, MTN fight regulator on mobile price hikes

Liberia, one of Africa’s smallest economies, has seen a rapid growth in mobile users over the last decade, but its regulators are stuck in an ongoing pricing battle with two of the region’s largest telecoms companies in the world.

French giant Orange and Lonestar Cell MTN, a subsidiary of South Africa’s MTN Group have told consumers they are increasing prices because of a new order which imposes additional surcharges of $0.008 for each minute of voice calls and $0.0065 on each megabyte of data.

Under the new plan, a $1 recharge card is worth 15 minutes of voice calls, down from 45 mins. And $2 will buy 600 megabytes on internet data down from 1.2 gigabytes.

In response, the state regulator, Liberia Telecommunication Authority, said on Oct. 8 the mobile companies were engaging in illegal price-fixing and collusion . It gave the network companies 12 hours to rescind their new prices which they did not.

The regulator argues the price floors established in 2019 gave the network companies a windfall of $104 million in extra revenue. And that the new prices are designed for additional profiteering.

French giant Orange and Lonestar Cell MTN, a subsidiary of South Africa’s MTN Group have been in a long-running battle with the Liberia Telecommunications Authority over charges which are aimed at increasing competitiveness and in turn bring stability to the market.

Over the years, the two companies have become a dominant duopoly providing voice calls and data at cheap prices, thus effectively pricing competitors like Novafone out of the market. Novafone was later bought by Lonestar-MTN.

The mobile network companies are fighting to lower their prices arguing that ordinary Liberians cannot afford a price regime which increases the average phone user’s costs by as much as 100%.
