Skype is VOIP or "Voice Over Internet Protocol". You can basically make phone calls using your built in microphone or speaker on your computer or laptop. You can also buy an actual phone that attaches via usb to make calls. The benefits of using this is that if you and the other person you are calling are both subscribers than the call is free. If you call someone who is not a subscriber than the cost will be minimal. The software, also allows file transfers, texting, video chat and videoconferencing.
