What is Skype?

Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are. It's sometimes called "video-conferencing" and it's free. All you need is Internet access and a computer with a microphone and webcam. And you probably already do!
