Designed to run on Mac and Windows operating systems, this version of Skype includes new features such as video conferencing (web camera needed), call forwarding when you are not online and tools to search users with Skype accounts.
Skype 1.0 provides other communication means such as instant messaging, easy web conferencing, and telephone calls to online Skype users - services that are free of charge. Other features include file transferring, ability to display online and offline contacts, call log, alerts for missed calls. In addition, users can express emotions through a variety of emoticons available while instant messaging.
This is a great tool to communicate easily to people in distant locations either through the telephony or the instant messenger features. Companies can also take advantage of some of this tool’s benefits with customers, providers, or remote teams to facilitate and speed up communications through this means.
