No matter where you are, Skype always go with you

It was some years ago when the popular MSN Messenger was discontinued and went unusable in the entire world. I thought that it was going to be the last Instant Messaging client that I would ever use but I was wrong. I tried Skype in my own computer and it is really helpful for contacting with my friends and family. Thanks to it I can write to any of my previous MSN Messenger contacts since the email address I use is the same. The quality of the voice calls depends too much on your network status, and sometimes it lacks that quality that it is presumed for this program.

The possibility of using my Facebook profile with Skype is really good, since I can talk with my Facebook friends without changing of program I am using at that moment. I think it is very comfortable to use, and although the interface may be too simple, the options and additional functions are easy to access. I had some problem with my microphone, but checking the settings I finally could solve it. That is the worst point, it needs to have automatic recognition of external devices. For the rest of it, this is a really good messaging application.


  • Very easy to configure and use
  • Free calls and possibility of calling to cellphones
  • Instant messenger replacing the old MSN application


  • Voice calls depends on your Internet connection too much
  • It needs to be automaticly configurable

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.
