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.

make free and quality video and audio calls all over the world

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 is free to download and the basic features of skype are that it enables its users to send free messages to other skype users and not forgetting making high quality video calls to other skype users.This is the basic function of skye and that is for video conferencing as well as making video calls and this is not only done in one country but from any country as long as you have an internet connection.Skype needs very heavy internet so that it can be able to make calls i.e video calls and deliver very high defination video calls.In addition to that before you have skype you have to download it and then set up a microsoft account if you do not have one and then you set up your profile picture as well as the username you would like to be referred to on skype and from then onwards you can search for a friend using their username on skype and then when they confirm that they want to add you as a friend on skype then you can kick off your conversation.Please download skype it is of very much importance.
