Basic Operations

Skype is very easy to use – you must first open the program and then select a friend from your friends list. Then you can either call him/her by clicking on the appropriate button or start a chat. You can also do these same things by right-clicking on your friend in the list. If you install a web camera you can have video conversations too, even videoconferencing sessions. It is up to you! And if you wish to call people on traditional phone networks you must buy Skype credit first but this is easy too as this feature supports online payments.


There is no argue about that Skype is the most popular and widespread instant message client in the world. What makes it so famous is that it is free, easy to install and user-friendly. Its capabilities are almost endless, from standard chat to video and conference calling. Don't hesitate and download it in order to keep in touch with your best friends and family.
