The VoIP videocalling program par excellence

Skype is the world's leading VoIP calling service. A free tool that lets you talk to other users using text chats, voice and/or video conversations. The tool uses a peer-to-peer technology based on the well known file exchange service, Kazaa, to offer a robust and trustworthy call system, allowing you to talk to your friends with the same reliability and sound quality you would expect on a landline phone.

It uses VoIP technology to make calls between users and calls from its users to regular phones, both mobile and landline, all in a very simple and quick way that doesn’t require you to set-up or configure anything. Its creators affirm that it even offers an audio quality that’s better than that on a regular phone call.

It’s completely free and comes with no extra ads; you'll hear the typical dialing phone sounds, it'll tell you if the contact you are calling is talking on Skype at that moment, and you can pick up and hang up all the calls you want. Plus, it includes Facebook integration and the option of making group video-calls with up to ten users at a time using their webcams; not to mention that it includes the Windows Live Messenger messaging after having been purchased by Microsoft.

As it’s a multiplatform application, you can make calls between devices, whether they're your desktop or smartphone. Skye is, quite definitely, one of the leading digital VoIP telephone services in the world.
Skype now lets you record video calls

According to Skype's official blog, from now on, you can record any call, both video and audio, without leaving the app. This feature is available in the latest update of the app for Android, although it's also available for the rest of the platforms except the client for the Windows 10 store.

Skype 8.0 gives a big facelift to the Android app

Skype long ago gave up on trying to be a "simple" videoconferencing app in favor of being something like an all-in-one communication solution: IM, VoIP, stickers, photo collages, you name it. With the new 8.0 update its social dimension is now more powerful than ever, with all the menus being completely redesigned and with new features being added that bring it even closer to competitors like Snapchat and Instagram.

How to communicate in Clan Battles in Clash Royale

The arrival of Clan Battles to Clash Royale has changed how we're playing this blockbuster title from Supercell. The fact that we can now play alongside a companion from our Clan has added an element of teamwork in a game that's always been characterized by cutthroat competition. Though this mode is only available temporarily, we still thought it was a good idea to explain several ways to improve communication with your teammate and thereby avoid doing the same things over and over.
