Skype is synonymous with free calling. This program provides free calls over the Internet, so-called Internet telephony. All you have to do is have headphones or speakers, a microphone and possibly a webcam for video calls and you can connect with anyone on this planet. After installation, just make a short registration and you can call as long as you want.

Skype can be used on two levels - the first is the classic, free version. To access some special functions and especially for the possibility of calling landlines and mobiles, not only to other computers, you need to secure a paid version.

Both versions have these basic functions - chat and written communication with one or more Skype contacts. With the paid version, it is possible to send SMS messages to mobile phones. However, the main function is Internet telephony itself. Even the basic version of the account allows both voice and video transmission. The only difference with the paid version is that you can start a video conference, which means that more than two Skype contacts can take part in a video call. Of course, you can save contacts, share statuses, keep call history and written communication and much more.

The paid version is often used by telephony companies around the world. It enables high-quality connections to fixed lines to all countries of the world for a very low minute tariff. In addition, telephoning is very convenient - there is no need to hold the handset, you can dial the number by retrieving it from the history, or copying it from the Internet.

You can download the mobile version of the program here.
