If you’re a computer geek or new computer user, you must have heard of Skype. Skype is a useful VOIP application that allows users to make calls over the Internet. With Skype, you can even make calls to any telephone number worldwide. But for that, you need to purchase Skype credits.
To get started, download Skype for your OS from the office website and run the installer. One thing to note is it asks you whether you want to install Skype Click to Call addon or not. With Skype Click to Call, users can call numbers present on websites directly from their browser. If you don’t want to install, simply uncheck this option and follow on screen instructions.
Skype has a clean and user friendly interface showing contacts in sidebar with personal chats on the other side.
A handy feature in the latest version of Skype is that you can connect and manage your Facebook account as well. Click on Facebook logo in left sidebar and click on connect with Facebook button and log in with your credentials.
It will ask you to give access to the application to access your timeline and other information. Click on Allow button.
You can update your status, check posts on Facebook, comment on your friend’s post and more.
You can even chat with online Facebook friends at any time. If you want to disconnect your Facebook account from Skype, click on the settings icon and disconnect your Facebook account.
