You always talk to someone through email and instant messages like the mobile sms and you just think that this person is brown, fat, wearing specks, has long hair and so on?

Stress yourself no more, download skype in you mobile, PC, or laptop and talk to that person one on one through skype video.

Skype is free to use so long as you have internet where you are to use it. If you have someone far and you need to do something which you can not understand well, you can communicate through skype for better illustration.

Parents with their children far from home can use skype to communicate.

You can create chat group with skype where you can be chatting by exchanging instant messages.

You can also make calls to your friend with a land line but with this you have to purchase some credit but it is usually very cheap, but you can not make emergency calls with skype. This I tried as a test and it failed to connect. I think it is a certain degree of security.

In order to be a skype user you must create a user name and password and the one you are communicating to must also have a user name and a password.


  • Free video calls all your connected people
  • Instant messages all for free
  • Sharing screen as you make a video call


  • You can not make emergency calls
  • Cannot make a landline call without credit purchase

Skype is a app that enables chatting and making calls with its advanced functionality. It acts in a way that once you know the name of another user you can chat with them. It doesn't include a friend request like Facebook but you will have to create an account with them. You only need to have an email address. Even when you uninstall Skype the account will still be active and when someone sends you a message it will be displayed in your email account..

You can also gain Skype credit to use it to call or video chat with someone. When you want to install Skype you wont have to do a lot of staff..


When you unzip or run the exe file, you will see a message pop up in the windows saying. not far to go now, and prompting you to choose the default language you want to use. after you do this click i agree-next to continue..

Then another message will appear asking you to choose your search engine. It will always display bing because bing is also an accelerator. You can choose not to choose this by unchecking the box below and then click on continue.

After that the installation will begin, it is advised that you have internet connected in order to upgrade Skype if there is an upgrade available. Wait for sometime for this to finish..

Once done skype will ask you to sign up or login. Do so and then Skype will open and you can start adding people to your list. Also in the background there will also be another configuration setup . It will ask you to choose a user name spaces are not allowed. choose your profile picture and also configure you web cam for video chats and your mic..

Thats it you are good to go. il just leave the rest for you to experience .


The fact that i can make video calls without having to put on credits make it worth while installing skype.. also it doesn't charge you more to to chat with someone close to you or miles away..


  • The app is free of charge
  • delivery of messages is quick
  • Video calls are very clear
  • It is also available for smart phones


  • require some credit in some features

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 works on many devices and Operating Systems, which make it an excellent extended cross-platform communication program

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.
