Nowadays the way of communicating has changed since we do it through different applications or social networks, spending much of the time using these services when we are not close to the person with whom we want to have a conversation, either through messages or calls ..

 

 

Skype has been developed by Microsoft as one of the best and most practical options for making calls and video calls over the Internet and the best thing is that it is free of charge, with Skype it is also possible to make calls to telephone terminals for a fee.

 

Skype functions
By using Skype it will be possible to:
  • Access live subtitles
