Skype is a free voice-over IP and instant messaging service. It allows users to text, video and voice call over the internet all over the world.
With Skype you can:
- Text to your friends like in other messengers such as ICQ or Miranda. You can communicate with one person or several people (in our school we use chat as a board). You can also send and accept files via Skype chat.
- make free calls to anyone else on Skype and talk like on the phone. You can also make group calls. If you have a webcam, you can make video calls. In this case you will be able to see your interlocutor.
You can download the program at the official website.
