Skype is a VoIP service owned by Microsoft, which replaces the former Instant Messaging client known as MSN Messenger. This software allows you to get in touch and talk to your friends and relatives, not only just with Instant Messages, but also through an excellent free video conferencing service. Skype works on a multitude of devices as well as Operating Systems that make it an excellent extended cross-platform communication program. It additionally comes with various plugins to download that can ideally customize your user experience.
Skype is based on the peer-to-peer protocol that involves the constant use of many nodes at the same time for improving both voice and video quality over its competitors. At the same time, the application takes advantage of the system’s background processes, which may increases its memory use, but in exchange it offers a high level of stability.

Skype allows you to communicate with any kind of user no matter what kind of device they are using. You can use it for conference calls with your friends while they are away, using mobile phones via Wi-Fi or 3G. Additionally you can make calls to landlines, but this function is optional and requires buying credits. Anyway, Skype-to-Skype communication will be good enough for any kind of user to call their contacts on Blackberry, Android or iOS mobile devices, as well as any kind of computer or tablet.
Use it everywhere with everyone
Since social networks are a significant part of our daily lives, and Skype has included total integration with Facebook. With this new function, you will be able to chat and perform video conferences online with any user that you have in your personal account or with FB friends with Skype. This can save you effort and time since a Skype account won’t be necessary when you can use your Facebook one instead.
We can’t forget about one of its main functions, which is the Instant Messaging feature to talk to your contacts. As is usual with this kind of services, you can use emoticons while you are communicating with one of your contacts, which are always great if you want to add emphasis to your feelings. There is an option to create a chat group of up to 300 different contacts, so these groups can be absolutely massive. Also, what is a really useful feature is the ability to send SMS messages using Skype if you need your contact to receive it straight away.
The main interface does not show all the features Skype actually has; it only promotes its main services for communicating with your contacts. If you check the different menus, you will find interesting functions like Screen Sharing that will let you share what you have on your screen at that moment in time. This is really useful for remote support or in situations for video conferences and showing presentations to your contacts.

skype nowadays is the order of the world and i do not know of anyone that is not using skype as a means of communication i joined it several years back.All you do it is that you register with it and you can also register with your facebook or microsoft account and then you will be good to go.It will inform you that you wait because it is being set up which may take a few more minutes to install and then set it up.You will be asked to set up your profile setting and then that is where you can decide to also put your profile picture there and then come to my most favourite segment which will be to add friends and you can search for them using their telephone numbers and when you get them you can send them a request of being friends on skyoe and if they add you to their contacts then you will be good to go i terms of chatting with them as well as calling them.

Skype is a must-have these days - its a popular communication tool supporting video calls, audio calls and instant messages. With Skype, geographical distance is not a barrier anymore. It allows users to communicate collaboratively as it also supports group calls. It serves many different uses; personal use includes connecting with friends and family, many people also use it for interviews and group discussions. Depending on the internet connection of the contacts though, the video and voice quality varies greatly. Generally, there is a lag especially if the contact resides in a different country. If so the video is laggy and pixelated. And the voice may seem distorted due to the latency. Often the video is not in sync with the audio. But Skype is still a fairly good communication tool: users can send files, have a chat or a serious discussion about work collaboratively. Its a great app for communicating with people without physical presence.
- Supports voice calls, video calls and IM
- Can sync one's live account
- Latency issues; and bad voice and video quality at times.

They developers made the application very compatible with many mobile devices making it a must have application. The application has full integration with Facebook and this means that the user is only required to log into his or her Facebook and be able to access full Skype functionality. This application has the main feature based on Instant Messaging that allows one to communicate to the contacts in a very fast way and very efficient. This application is superior in all the graphics and also has a lot of emotions to choose from and aside from that it allows for 300 contacts on a single chat group. This application can also allow one to send SMS through Skype without having to use your airtime as long as you have internet access. Screen sharing is a remote based feature that allows one to get real time assistance when need be by sharing the exact screen on real time.
