Next time you wan to talk to someone in Chinese Mandarin, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish, just call them on Skype. Or text in 50 different languages and the recipient will receive the texts in their default languages even if it's Hindi or Urdu.

The feature first caught our attention in 2014 when it was beta. But now, anyone using Skype on a Windows PC can use it. This is Skype's attempt to break the language barrier by making multi-lingual conversations not just possible but as seamless as they can be. Voice and Text translations work in real time with the app acting as a translator. Without a third person involved, the conversations can stay as natural as possible.
