Skype is the best VoIP software out there. The software is used today to make phone calls to PCs, with high clarity (more than you can achieve with others like messenger softwares). The software can connect you to any PC anywhere around the world, and you can chat or talk (if you have a microphone). You can make calls all around the world for free.
The coolest thing about the software is that it can call even the actual phones, mobile phones etc. Skype can call anything virtually. But to call the actual phones, what you need is Skype credits, which you can purchase directly from the Skype software, or by connecting to their website. What you need to do is register with the Skype, which can be done directly through Skype messenger, and sign in. Once done, you can connect to anybody around the world, all you need is the receiver’s Skype ID.
Another cool thing for you is that you can set up a virtual telephone number using Skype, using which your callers can call you at a local rate, no matter where in the world you are. You will receive your calls in your PC, if you are online with Skype.
What’s most commendable about Skype is that you get a very high quality voice through it. You can speak like you do through your telephone. Their voice capabilities are highly commendable. Perhaps it’s because of this voice clarity, that Skype is so popular. It helps you set up your microphone and other devices.
Skype is now an ebay company.
