Skype revolutionised internet communication with its VOIP software, which allows users to make calls to other Skype accounts. It wasn’t the first to release this software, and many more software applications have been released since that can do the same thing, often with more features and better layouts, but Skype cornered the market early on and has remained there since. Due to the nature of the market, Skype’s competitors haven’t been able to get a look in. Because of the way it works, it means that for someone to be interested in using a VOIP program, their friends would need to use it as well (otherwise, who would they call?) and because Skype has the dominant share of the market, it seems inevitable that it remain as the leading VOIP program for many years to come.
Skype is available for desktop use and it is also available on smartphones and tablets. It is compatible with most Operating Systems, including Android, iOS and Windows Mobile, ensuring that even when you’re out and about you can still stay in touch with your friends through Skype IM, Voice Chat or Video Chat.
