Skype




With Skype’s free software – working easily with your internet connection – you can connect with free Skype-to-Skype calls and never worry about cost, time or distance. Get your friends to download Skype so you can talk, chat or make video calls for nothing. But you can also make local, long distance and international calls to phones and mobiles at great rates too.

Connecting with friends

You can add friends and family who use Skype to your contact list by using the easy-to-use search function. Then you can make free Skype-to-Skype calls, chat away with instant messages or send text messages just for starters.

Discovery activity:

We don't want you to have to download Skype just to learn about it. Explore the site and comment on your blog about Skype: Do you have family and friends overseas? Would you use Skype? What about video calls? Do you know of any friends/family who already use Skype?

Hello Eltham Library,

I have just read about Skype and I'm very pleased to learn about all the options, as I will be using it soon.
One of my sons is in Paris (with his laptop) and is about to set up an account for himself and me also. I am very much looking forward to communicating with him from my new laptop!

I also have a son who is in Sweden as an exchange student, and will be there for 6 months till Jan 09. Skype will be very useful to have a once a week chat with him for free. This is great!
