What Skype Is

Skype is an app that allows you to make free video calls, message others, and share your PC screen with others.

You can begin chatting with other people by adding them to your contacts. Once they have accepted your invitation, you can chat with them just as you can with any other messaging tool.


A little-known feature of Skype is the ability to share your screen with others. Let’s imagine that you need to show a friend how to use a website, you can share your screen with them and let them visually see everything you are doing.


You can call someone for free using Skype if both of you are using Skype. However, there are times when you want to call someone who has a land line and does not have Skype. You can do that and pay by the minute.

Microsoft is the maker of Skype. Hundreds of millions of people are already using Skype to do all sorts of things together.
