Skype is now a big part of a lot of people’s lives. The fantastic way it allows its users to make calls to each other – free of charge – from anywhere in the world is brilliant – and it’s connected millions of people with loved ones all around the world. Many people migrate and travel – and before Skype it was just too expensive to call people. With the invent of Skype – this has become free to do. But aside from saving money on phonecalls, what other ways can you use Skype to save money and make life easier?
All over the world, people are learning new things. Now though, you can learn from someone on Skype. If you want to play a musical instrument, but have a lack of teachers in your area, Skype is perfect. Carolyn Smyth teaches harp lessons via Skype – and can offer her service to any country in the world. It’s the same for languages or even qualifications.
If you work in a company that deals with overseas departments or clients, the best way to keep up to date with them for minimal cost is Skype. Using Skype for this purpose is usually better than a phonecall, as it allows you to see who you’re talking to.
If you’re a journalist and give frequent interviews, but you have a prospective interviewee from a different country, why not use Skype. Once again it’s a better medium than using the phone, as you are communicating face to face.
These are just some of the uses for Skype today – and if you don’t have an account, I suggest you get one.
