Recent news disclosed that Skype has a yuge security vulnerability which Microsoft won't fix (http://www.zdnet.com/article/skype-cann ... e-rewrite/).

But I don't know if WeChat is better.

I noticed that with Skype! What I always get is race conditions at the "handshake" stage.

Is it just me, or do we get a race condition when two people Skype each other at the same time?

It seems I'm late to the party, but Telegram probably. After all, it does not matter that much: you end up using whatever your clients use, be it Slack or Viber.
