Conference Calling and Video Calling:

In Skype, we can host video meetings which are very easy to host and manage.




 On the above picture on the left-hand side, just above recent chat, there are camera symbols with ‘Meet Now’ written on the side, by clicking it, there will be options of either Hosting a meeting or Joining a meeting. To host a meeting, we can just click on host meeting then there will be a small window where you have to add contacts or just send a link given to allow other persons to join. If we want to join the meeting, then we have to ask for a code for the meeting, then we can join.

To make video calls, select the contacts, then there will be a symbol of cammer in the top right-hand side of the window; select it to start video calling. More participants can be added by going to the bottom left-hand side of the window, where there is the option of adding a participant.



Audio Calling and Calls:

In skype, if the users we are calling have skype IDs, then we can just call for free from the upper right corner where there is a symbol of call. We can call any contact we have or any skype users for free from here.  




To make calls to non-skype numbers, in the upper left side there are also symbols of call; after selecting it, there will be an option for a new call just below it. After selecting the new call option, a new window will pop up where we can search in our contacts or use the dial pad to dial the number we need.



Chat and Sending files:



When sending a chat message we need to select the contact we want to send a message to. After selecting contact we can see the right side of the window change. On the bottom, there will be a box for typing a message and on the right side of the box there is an icon for files from which we can share files.



We can also send messages to mobile numbers, by selecting them the right side window will have the option to send SMS.
