You can make free voice or video calls using skype if your friend is also on skype. You can also make voice or video call if your friend is not on skype. But for that you have to buy skype credits you can buy with credit card also. With skype credits you will be able to call your offline friends and the number they will see will be different every time.

Skype is providing best voice and video calling quality from the very long time. And it does till now. And people still love it and use it a lot. We can say they copied the skype calling feature. What makes skype better than other applications are that skype is available on every single platform as software.

Skype is useful for Business as –

  1. Skype Business Recording – Records business meetings.
  2. Skype Business Video Conferencing – Number of people can participate in business meeting from different states or countries, same time.
  3. Skype For Business Web App – The mobile app can be download on android, windows, apple device. That can be used to attend business meetings or conferences.

But you cannot download Facebook app on Mac or Windows, also, WhatsApp app on Windows. Without emulators, because when skype had that feature in that time, there was no WhatsApp or Facebook.
