By James Meyette

On Friday, August 1, 2014

Skype is an amazing VOIP service, I personally have been using it for years, lately I use it every day to take care of business with clients outside of the United States without being able to have the usage of a product such as Skype doing so would be extremely expensive.

Skype has a nice range of features including but not limited to:

Instant Messaging

Voice Calling

Video Calling

Skype to Land line numbers

Land line Numbers to Skype

Skype to Cell phones

Cell Phones to Skype

Subscription based international calling

Due to all of the available features if you are looking for something cheaper than a Land Line, and you are always around a computer or mobile device as it is available for all operating systems including Android and iOS, Then Skype is the right choice for you.

Since Skype is owned by Microsoft, you can log in with your Outlook, Live, Hotmail accounts and have full access to all Skype features.

In conclusion Skype is a great software to use for all of your communication needs.


  • Most Features are free to use
  • Fast, Secure, Readily available, Easy to Use
  • Easy to use interface things are pretty self explanitory, and if you don't understand there is plenty of helpful documentation


  • Some features are only available via Subscription fee
  • Sometimes Skype crashes because of some really wierd errors that are seemingly unexplicable

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.

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.
