Regardless of whether you are using the free or paid version of
Skype, you must register for a Skype name. Your Skype name is your
identity on Skype and is how people will contact you through the
application. To create your Skype name, click the link that appears when
you open the application on your computer. Skype gives you the option
to fill out your full name, location and other information in your
profile so people can find you on Skype.
One of the most basic features of Skype is instant messaging and
chat rooms. You can initiate free instant messages to have conversations
with multiple contacts online, or invite contacts to join a chat room.
Skype allows you to send and receive files to contacts directly through
the instant messaging window. Skype even provides a selection of
emoticons to express your feelings in your instant message. Emoticons
are located in the bottom-right corner of the application window.
Skype offers free audio calls between Skype users and reduced rates
on calls from your computer to regular telephone numbers anywhere in
the world. To call regular telephone numbers, you must purchase Skype
credit, which is available through the application. Skype also provides
free one-on-one video conferencing between Skype users. A broadband
Internet connection is recommended when using the audio conferencing
feature and required to use the video conferencing feature.
Although Skype is available for free download, paid versions of
Skype offer extra features. Skype Premium includes group video
conferences with up to six contacts and live chat customer support, and
is available for Mac and Windows. Skype Premium is available for a
monthly subscription of $8.99 or a day pass for $4.99. Skype Business
