It`s a very good program.Voice quality is so good its scary sometimes.Anyways,I use it very rarely bcuz I hate talking to someone I don`t see.

the latest version has webcam support, yes the quality is great, but its too intensive for games tho

plus its always on, no push to talk

I have used it some years to speak to friends abroad. First it had some tens of tousands users, no its millions...

Only used it with both online, making international calls free.

No substitute for TS, its a high quality phone for free. (and much more, can call a normal phone with it for local cost whereever it is + +)

Essentially Skype is like using the telephone.Good quality.

You can make pc to pc calls for free.Pc to landline cals cost (you need an account) but are very cheap.

You can have confrence calls if you wish.

I use it while I fly but with only one other person.
