    01/29/2017 12:00 AM by Admin in Webmaster


    Without a doubt, Skype is very useful communication software that allows you to connect with people from all over the world. Whether you are using it for your own personal use or for your business, it really is a very reliable and versatile software. However, if you still do not have such very useful software on your mobile device or in your laptop, this article will teach you how to download and install it into your device.

    Downloading Skype

    If you are using a desktop computer or a laptop, you can download the software from its website. Just make sure to download the right version of Skype that is compatible with your operating system. There is a version of Skype for Windows and there is also a version for Mac.

    On the other hand, if you are using a mobile device, smart phone, or tablet, you can download the software as an application from the app stores. Just search for the Skype app on the store and you can download it for free.

    Installing Skype

    After downloading Skype, to be able to use it, you need to set it up and install it. If you are using a desktop computer or a laptop, go to the folder where you placed the downloaded Skype installer. Once you are there, click the installer and a window of Skype will be shown on screen. Install the Skype software on recommended settings or in custom settings if you prefer some options. The software will then be automatically installed into your device.

    On the other hand, if you are using a tablet or a mobile phone, once you have downloaded the Skype application, it will automatically be installed right after being downloaded. You just have to agree on some terms and conditions to be able to proceed with the installation.

    Setting Up Your Account

    If you still do not have your own Skype account, you should create one. You will be prompted with this after installation. The Skype software will automatically check if you have a microphone and webcam connected for voice and video calls. You will also set up your own account. You will be prompted for a username, password, and your own profile picture. Just choose a profile picture that you would like to use, preferably the one that will allow other people to be able to recognize you so that it will be easy for them to find you and be added into their contact list.

    Downloading, installing, and setting up the Skype software is a piece of cake. After you have the software, make sure to make a good use out of it. For instance, you can make use of a tool called Skype Resolver which allows you to extract useful contact details from people on Skype. You can get their email address, IP address, geolocation, latitude, and longitude just by using their Skype ID. To use the tool go to SEO Tool Station.
