Skype is an application for phone and video calls over the internet from your PC to other PC or mobile phone which also has the application installed. With this software you can even call to your home phone and enjoy cheap rates. You are free to use prepaid rates or a monthly rent according to your needs, which is a big benefit.

Maybe other programs offer more VoIP options such as turning your device to a VoIP phone, but Skype is easy to use and install. It brings you high-quality video and audio calls and it is a great alternative if you need an easy way to keep in touch and you don’t need many VoIP services.

How to use

Skype is easier to set up than other similar programs. You just have to install the application to begin making calls. Through a microphone and headphones, Skype allows you to talk to friends and family, wherever they are. You can make calls to all countries around the world. The sound fidelity is excellent, like you were in the same room as the person you are talking.

Also, you can make video calls with high-quality image or send instant messages. Nevertheless, these calls allow only two videos at a time. You are also free to transfer your calls to your mobile phone when you are offline. To call someone, add them as a contact, double click on the Skype name and immediately get in touch with the other PC. If you need assistance, this program provides you several support options such as popular FAQs and help topics concerning payment methods, products, features or technical problems. It also provides step-by-step tutorials, user forums and a VoIP glossary if you are in trouble.

Upon the tragic death of Messenger, Skype has come to claim the “instant messaging” throne for itself. Millions of people use this program daily; at home, at the office, at school, etc. Doesn’t matter, Skype is good for everything. You can keep in touch with family and friends with instant messages (filled with nice emoticons) or use its video calls to see that old friend which is now living in Poland. Although this application is not a one-of-a-kind, it is definitely worth trying.
