Skype is an all-in-one communication app for internet telephony. It’s a feature-packed app that allows users to make voice and video calls, send text and voice messages, share images and documents, and conduct video conference calls. The Skype app started in August of 2003 when the team headed by the Swedish nationals Niklas Zennstrom and Dane Janus Friis released the first desktop version of the program. The user base of the application rose exponentially in the first two years of its release. And by September of 2005, the e-commerce giant eBay decided to purchase Skype at $2.6 billion making it one of the most successful apps ever developed. In September 2009, a Canadian investment corporation agreed to acquire 65% of Skype from eBay. This placed Skype’s enterprise market value to $2.92 billion. Microsoft then took Skype from eBay in a deal worth $8.5 billion made on May of 2011. Since then, Skype has been a flagship product of the Microsoft Corporation. The Skype mobile app is free to download although in-app purchases are available to get Skype credits. The credits could be used to avail premium features like Skype to landline calls, having local landline number attached to Skype, and unlimited call services for some countries. Skype to Skype messaging and calls are free for all users. The video conferencing feature, which is one of the reasons for Skype’s popularity, is also free for everyone. As of 2015, Skype has an average of more than 300 million active users per month. The app has also reached the 1 billion landmark in downloads.
Pandora Radio (or just Pandora) is a music streaming service available in selected countries. It allows users to listen to music from Pandora's catalogue either for free with ads, or for a monthly subscription fee. While it is common users play through the mobile app, Pandora also includes web browser support. To begin listening to music, you start a station by choosing an artist, a song, or a combination thereof. This creates a station that then, based on your feedback, will generate a playlist of songs based off the artist and/or song selections. You can then say that you like the song playing with a thumbs up, or not like with a thumbs down. This will then fine tune the song selections moving forward to be closer to your music style. Pandora also includes links to allow you to buy any songs or albums you like direct from iTunes or Amazon. Users can create and save personalized radio stations and playlists within Pandora. You do need to register an account with Pandora, and be at least 13 years of age. Pandora is powered by the Music Genome Project. This ambitious big data project uses around 450 data points to harmoize song selections. Such data points could include harmony, rhythm, instruments played, and more. These data points are used to determine the best songs to add to a radio station users listen to. Due to licensing restrictions of the project, this limits the availability of Pandora to a select few countries. To date, this only includes the United States, Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, Pandora reported they have over 250 million registered users, with 79.9 million monthly active users in 2016. Pandora also has around 70% of the internet radio market in the US.
