If you need to stay in touch with friends and relatives, Skype is for you – its free voice and video calling services are feature rich and simple to use.

Why you need it

It's fair to say that Skype has revolutionised the way we stay in touch in the internet age. By allowing us to make free video calls over the web, it took a science fiction fantasy and made it a reality enjoyed by millions of users across the globe.

If you don't have a webcam to make video calls, you can still make voice calls or use Skype as an instant messaging app, all for free. It also doubles as a traditional telephone service, allowing you to call mobile and landline numbers anywhere in the world using its Skype Credit system.

And it's ideal for business users thanks to its ability to set up group calls or group video calls. Provided everyone in your conference call has Skype, that allows you to stay in touch with business partners and clients completely free of charge.

There are tons of extra features, too. Get a phone number for your Skype app and attach a caller ID to it, forward calls from Skype to the phone of your choice, or share contacts and files. You can even share your screen with the person you're calling, useful for demonstrations or one-to-one tutorials.

So whoever you need to stay in touch with and however you need to do it, Skype is sure to offer a great service to fit the bill.
