Haven’t heard of Skype free internet phone calls yet? To my surprise a lot of our frequent visitors apparently don’t know about this excellent free service. So without further ado, here’s what you need to know about Skype:

Skype is free software that you can download on your pc (there’s also a Skype for Vista available). If you have sound and a microphone on your pc, you’re practically all set to call the whole world for free. One small caveat: only Skype-to-Skype calls are free. You can also use your Skype account to call landlines or cell phones, but then there’s a cost involved. Prices are very attractive though.

But let’s focus on the possibilities to make free calls over the internet with your friends worldwide.

Now, often times you have to be careful with free software, because it might smuggle spyware or malware into your computer, but it’s absolutely safe to use Skype. It’s totally spyware and malware free.

You might find an occasional negative comment on the Skype sound quality in some Skype review here or there, but Skype sound quality issues are usually best dealt with by using a headset. Without a headset, the sound from your speakers might get caught in a bad feedback loop with your microphone. So if you are struggling with Skype sound quality, you should consider getting a headset.

Literally millions of people make Skype free internet phone calls all over the world. Imagine the amount of money you can save on long distance phone calls, and you can even include live video if you have a webcam.

You can of course also send text messages, chat with your friends or send files over Skype. Heck, you can even do free conference calls and include people with regular phones in your conference call.

Skype free internet phone calls is a fun, safe and reliable way to stay connected with friends and relatives all over the world. If you haven’t heard of it before, please do yourself a favor and check it out.

Skype is also available for Mac users and Linux users.
