One of the essential tools you should have installed on your computer is Skype.
Skype is a software application that allows users to do the following:
- Make Free voice calls over the Internet. You can make free calls to other users who have skype installed on their computer.
- Make Free Video calls over the Internet. If you have a webcam installed on your computer, you can make free video calls, the other person also needs to have skype installed on his computer too. Its great as you and whom you are calling get to see each other.
- Instant Messaging, Chatting and File sharing: You can use Skype to chat and while chatting share files from your computer. If the person isn’t around you can leave a message offline and when he or she comes online, your message pops up on their computer screen. Now this works because Skype is often configured to start up once a computer has finished booting and connected to the internet
- Make Cheap Calls: Cheap calls to both traditional landline telephones and mobile phones can be made for a nominal fee.
- Conference calling: You can have a conference call with 2 or more people having skype for free, however if one of them doesn’t have Skype installed , you can ask this person to join in the conference call but this attracts a fee.
- Video conference calling: You can have a video conference call. Imagine being able to see the faces of all those whom you are doing business with or a working on a project with together. Much better than just conference calling, however you would need to have a premium or business subscription for this as against conference calling which is free.
- Screen sharing: You can share the computer screen of what you are doing with those of your callers, this works when you are having a video call. This enables the other person to see what you are doing on your computer screen while he or she is thousands of miles away. Great for tutorials and project work. It also works for free
- Get Local and international phone lines as your own: You can purchase local lines or international lines and then link them to your Skype. The person would think you are in his country or locality.
