Seeing What Skype Can Do For You

Skype can dramatically alter how you exchange information, how you meet new people, and how you interact with friends, family, and colleagues. Although you can make calls on Skype, there is oh so much more to it. For starters, here are some things you get or can do with Skype:
  • Call to or receive a call from a regular telephone, a cell phone, or a computer on the Internet.
  • Send or receive files over the Internet to and from fellow skypers.
  • Search your Outlook contacts and call them within Skype.
  • Search the Skype database of all Skype users on the planet. Hold a conference call with a group of people. Besides participating in audio conferencing, you can “simul-chat” with your conference participants — exchanging text, live Web links, and files. Make live video calls.
  • Initiate a group chat.
  • Hold a Skypecast for as many as 100 people at a time. Transmit secure and encrypted voice conversations, text, file transfers, and video.
