Skype es una utilidad para hablar a través del PC con tus conocidos que promete una mayor calidad de sonido que el resto de programas de este tipo, incluso afirmando más que una llamada de teléfono ordinaria. ¿Lo conseguirá Skype?

Skype es lo más parecido a realizar una llamada que existe, hasta suenan los típicos sonidos telefónicos. Realizas la llamada (con un simple clic), puedes descolgar cuando te llaman, colgar, incluso comunica si ya se está hablando con otra persona.

Skype posee lista de amigos, logs de llamadas, un buscador rápido y completo con el que encontrarás fácilmente personas con las que hablar en el idioma que desees, diferentes estados (disponible, invisible, ocupado, etc.), ¡hasta tiene llamadas perdidas!

Skype es muy fácil de usar, bastará con hacer doble clic sobre la persona a la que quieras llamar y listo. También permite enviar mensajes de texto.

A nivel técnico reseñar que Skype, de los creadores de KaZaA, no presenta ningún tipo de problemas por tipo de conexión, router o firewalls, además, no incluye ningún tipo de publicidad ni spyware (comprobado con Ad-aware y Spybot Search & Destroy).

En resumen, Skype es una excelente forma de hablar totalmente gratis con tus amigos o conocer nuevas personas.
