Advantages Free good quality calls at home and abroad.
Disadvantages Doesn't work as well with slower internet connections
I've been using this wonderful piece of software for a while now and thought hey if anything deserves a review it's a 'revolutionary' piece of kit like this! Skype has been around for a while now so if you haven't heard of it or don't use it there is no excuse really but don't worry too much if you don't use it because i'm going to fill you all in right now then you can go off and download it =].
Instant Messaging - much like other IM services you can choose to appear online, away, do not disturb, invisible and offline and talk to other people online as you please.Video calling - this is a great for anyone who has friends or relatives abroad so doesn't get to see them that often. Given that you both have a good internet connection chatting and the picture are great and can really make you feel like you're missing out that little bit less. In my case seeing my new born cousin scream her lungs out live on video was miles better than any silent picture!
Calling people who don't have Skype - for a small charge you can call people in the UK or abroad. For landlines prices vary between 0.012 GBP (for UK calls and most other European countries) to GBP 0.153 for other destinations. Though your first call to landlines is usually free to let you test it out.
