one thing that i find that is the most advantegous thing about skype is the fact that it is avaibale for both mobile phones as well as computers as long as there is a webcam so that you can see the person whom you are calling face to face.When you download skype for free you need to sign up with a microsoft account and then you set your profile picture as well as your name and then you search for the contacts whom you think you want to add to your contact list and when they get the invite of they accept the invite then you are good to go.If you want to make a call to them you will just press on the name and then you will see a red button which displays call and then when you press that button then you you can talk to the other contact as you watch them.Another good thing about skype is that it will inform you whether the person is offline or online so you will know when to call them.


  • you see the other person as they are
  • they have added some emojis when sending a message


  • it consumes a lot of data

Skype lets you connect with your dearest as never before..!

Skype may be the best VoIP user base and video-chatting service and there are reasons for its dominance. I have used almost all popular video-calling services including FaceTime, an apple only video-calling tool. From my experience, FaceTime provides the best quality video and audio even when data speed is low and Skype is the second best. But Skype dominates over FaceTime in compatibility matters and supports almost all operating systems. I use Skype to connect with 90% of my friends.

Skype developers make the UI more minimalistic in each version of Skype and even noobs can set up Skype easily on their device. What all we need is a Skype account. It can be directly created from the software. You can also use Microsoft account to login instead of Skype account if you have one. If you are a Windows Messenger user, I advise you to login with that account so that you can import all your contacts to Skype. Also, Skype allows you to mark your favorite friends so that you can find them quickly.

Skype facilitates almost all chat methods like Instant Messages, voice and video calls, call conferencing, desktop sharing, file transfer etc. Latest versions of Skype have Facebook integration also, but the functions are limited to liking, commenting and sharing. Conferencing and call to phone features are available for premium members only. Also, Skype facilitates international calls at affordable rates.

Video and audio qualities are also improved in latest versions. Videos won’t get pixilated anymore (for an average connection speed). Many glitches and bugs are also fixed. Voice quality of VoIP calls is improved. Moreover, Skype should be up to date for better performance.


If you are looking for high quality video-calling software like FaceTime, go for Skype. Unlike FaceTime, Skype supports almost all operating systems including Android and iOS. 3rd party plug-in support is another attractive feature. Why should you wait? 90% of your friends are using it. Join Skype now..!

Skype is software that enables text communications, voice and video over IP (VoIP). It was designed in 2003 by Danish Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström Swedish (also creators of Kaza) and its technical solution developed by the Estonian Priit Kasesalu and Ahti Heinla because Skype actually born in Tallinn, Estonia. The Skype protocol code and are closed and proprietary, but interested users can download for free the executable on the official site. Skype users can talk to each other for free.

Since 2013, the network joined MSN Messenger Skype, MSN initiates a user session with the same credentials you used on MSN to communicate with another contact MSN or Skype, but only in text; to use the audio and video have to link your hotmail / outlook has Skype, but this is completely optional.

Another option is Skype provides SkypeIn, thanks to which a phone number is given to you from a telephone set, anywhere in the world, you can contact the computer. Furthermore, it provides a voicemail service.

The Skype logo shaped cloud and Skype interface is very similar to other instant messaging software such as Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger, and in the same way as these, it is possible to start a conversation instant messages between users of the same software. This program also allows you to leave voice messages (mailbox) if the user is not available, that being a paid service that comes bundled with SkypeIn.

The American intelligence agency National Security Agency (NSA) monitors Skype conversations through electronic surveillance system PRISM.

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.
