Skype is a free piece of communication software which uses VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to allow users to make free video and voice calls, send instant messages and share files with other Skype users.

It is completely free for you to communicate Skype-to-Skype; this includes video calls, calls and instant messaging. You can also call to landlines although you will have to credit your account as this is not free, however call rate are low and international calls are particularly good value.

What you will need:

  • Microphone (voice calling)
  • Webcam (video calling)
  • Speakers

Note: If all you want to do is send instant messages you will not need any of the above.

The welcome screen will help you to get set up and includes features which help check that the sound is working correctly and helps you to search for Skype contacts.
