Skype is a software application that allows users to make voice, video calls, and to chat over the internet. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free, while calls to both traditional landline telephones and mobile phones can be made for a fee using a debit-based user account system. Skype has also become popular for its additional features which include instant messaging, videoconferencing, and file transfer.
