Skype is more popular than Zoom.  It has its good and bad points. The best thing to do is find what works for your device and the one with which you need to connect.

Skype /ˈskp/ is a telecommunications application software product that specializes in providing video chat and voice calls from computers, tablets and mobile devices via the Internet to other devices or telephones/smartphones.[17] Users can also send instant messages, exchange files and images, send video messages and create conference calls. Skype is available to download onto computers running Microsoft Windows, Mac or Linux, as well as Android, Blackberry, iOS and Windows Phone smartphones and tablets. Much of the service is free but users require Skype Credit or a subscription to call landline or mobile numbers. Skype is based on a freemium model.”    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skype
