Classic instant messaging and calling

Skype is a universal communication and small file exchange tool popular among users around the world. The application is mainly used on a PC and supports voice calls, instant messaging, and video conferencing.

Functionality for those who need to stay in touch

Previously, Skype was used mainly to keep in touch with friends and family from other cities and countries. But now, the application has grown into a convenient platform for maintaining business communication. So you can reduce the cost of calls and SMS and contact remote employees without any problems.

Application features

Skype is a complete tool for online communication. The latest version of the app supports sending messages and files and making audio and video calls.

For convenience, there is a unique indicator near the user's avatar, which notifies the subscriber's availability: red means that the person is busy, and green means that the interlocutor is online and free to communicate.

It is also worth highlighting such features of Skype:

  • Ability to create group chats for messaging and conferences. A great addition to keeping in touch with colleagues at work or school.

  • Send files up to 300 MB. This is a clear advantage in comparison with other messengers and similar programs. Allows you to exchange photos and video files, documents, and different necessary types of content.

  • An alternative to a regular phone. You can recharge your account and receive credits for calls to mobiles and landlines. This requires only a stable Internet connection.

How to get started with Skype?

You must first create a Microsoft account to get started with the program. If you already have an account, you can immediately sign in to Skype. For an account, a set of standard user data is required:

  • Email

  • Phone number

  • Full name

After entering the data and generating a strong password, it remains only to confirm the phone number and email, and your account is ready to use.

Skype account settings

The first step after creating an account is to set up an avatar. It will be displayed in correspondence, calls, and even conferences. This will help other users to identify you quickly.

There is also a special section, "Status." You can enter any information in this field: your thoughts, occupation, working hours, etc. It is mainly used to indicate the users' availability for communication and calls.

Conclusion

For lovers of a classic and understandable interface without unnecessary details, Skype is a perfect application. Windows users have chosen it for years as a convenient and easy way to connect with family, friends, and colleagues through messages, calls, and video conferencing.
