Skype is software that enables you to make free calls anywhere in the world. Skype uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to connect you with other users. It offers several features, including SkypeOut calling from Skype to regular and mobile phones worldwide, conference calling, and secure file transferring. You can also now share your screen with other users. Skype calls focus on video and audio quality, and secure the calls with end-to-end encryption.
Free video calling Talk face-to-face with friends, family and colleagues. Share a smile, blow a kiss, explain an idea or just gaze longingly – free video calls with Skype are the next best thing to being there.
Free Skype-to Skype calling Speak to anyone in the world for free. Invite friends to join Skype and you can chat to them for as long as you like, wherever they are, for free. Say goodbye to quick catch-ups, say hello to free Skype calls.
Call landlines and mobiles Call people who aren’t on Skype. You can use Skype to call landlines and mobiles worldwide, at amazing rates. Simply dial a phone number, then start saving.
Free instant messaging Send an instant message when you can’t talk. Quicker than email, instant messaging is another way to stay in touch with one or more of your Skype contacts. You can share large files, too.
