From https://support.skype.com/en/faq/fa6/what-is-skype (accessed 29/3/20):
Skype is software that enables the world’s conversations. Millions of individuals and businesses use Skype to make free video and voice one-to-one and group calls, send instant messages and share files with other people on Skype. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you – on your mobile, computer or tablet.
Skype is free to download and easy to use.
If you pay a little, you can do more – like call phones and send SMS. You can pay as you go or buy a subscription, whatever works for you. And in the world of business, this means you can bring your entire ecosystem of workers, partners and customers together to get things done.
Try Skype today and start adding your friends, family and colleagues. They won’t be hard to find; hundreds of millions of people are already using Skype to do all sorts of things together.
If you have Microsoft Office 365 installed, you may already have Skype installed. To check, enter Skype in the search box at the bottom left hand side of the screen next to the Windows logo. If the application is installed, it will show in the search results window as an app. Simply click on it and go from there.
If you are new to on-line video and voice calling and do not have Skype installed on your computer, follow these steps. :
- Go to https://www.skype.com (this is a secure site)
- Download Skype to your computer and install it (follow any prompts)
- Enter your contact information and create a Skype name
- Do a test call (see menu on left of Skype screen)
If you get stuck, YouTube has many good videos on how to set up Skype.
You are now set to go!
