Make phone calls from the Internet and chat online"
A review of Skype by Andrew

Managing contacts and keeping in touch with friends and acquaintances has been made in an exceptional mode using VOIP calling service offered by Skype. The program is used for chat, as online messenger, for voice and video communication. Exchanging text messages, video calls, and chats amongst users via the program has changed the mode of communication. Users can pick up and hang up as they do with ordinary phones.

The tool offers a robust and trustworthy call system enabling users to talk to friends and colleagues reliably with sound quality as a landline phone. An intuitive interface lets users build contact lists, delete and rename lists. You can add contacts to the list by searching “Skype directory” by email or name besides saving a phone number. Set the privacy to allow calls and IMs from your contacts and block unknown users. You can also integrate the software with Facebook.

File sharing options help users to exchange documents and images of different file types. The multiplatform software supports calls between devices whether desktop or smartphone.

You can change your status to notify contacts whether you are busy, available, offline or away to control when to pick a conversation. The latest version of the program has voice detection system to aid translation.

Skype is licensed as freeware for Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system without restrictions. It is in instant messaging category and is available to all software users as a free download.
