What Is It?

Skype is jam-packed with great features to help you stay in touch with friends, family and co-workers, share your thoughts and views and find the information you need. You can use it on your computer and on both WiFi and cordless phones.


"Just for starters you can instant message with anyone on your contact list or even use group chat to chat with up to a hundred people. You could hold a conference call with up to nine other people to organise a get-together and then use SkypeFind to search for the perfect venue to hold it.

You can also make calls to phones and mobiles at home and abroad at great rates too

There are also really cool video features. All you need is a webcam to make free video calls or even take photos of yourself to personalise Skype. "
