Skype is the most used software, when it comes to call a mobile phone from internet. It is the preferable choice of the bloggers and the freelancers as a free VOIP service to make voice to voice calls. Skype is a Free+Premium (or you can say freemium) voice calling service. It lets you make a group video call, cheap voice call to the landlines and mobiles to any countries worldwide. It’s one kind of the instant messaging client that lets you connect to your clients, friends or family from anywhere in the world.
If you have a free Skype voucher codes then you can enter it to get free Skype credits.

Users may have two types of the Skype accounts. Either it will be a Skype free or a Skype premium account. Many friends have asked me that what is the difference between those accounts. But I would say that it depends on the user’s choice. Yes, if your requirement of using Skype is limited or only for the personal one-to-one use then you should go for a free account. Otherwise, get a premium one. Here is the short but quick description of the Skype free and premium accounts.
Features of the Skype Free Accounts
Primarily Skype free users can access free features. Some of them are free Skype to Skype voice+video calls, free Group calls, Instant messaging and free Video messaging with your friends.
The Cons of using Skype Free account are that you can’t perform group screen sharings, group video calls, no free unlimited calls to your selected country, no live chat customer support and you can’t remove the advertisements too.
As you already know that the word premium stands for something extra for that you’ve paid the dollars. The premium accounts for Skype lets you get all those features that you’re not getting in free accounts. If you’re intending to use your Skype premium account for business related purposes then you’ll make the most of out of it. It’s not limited to one-to-one screen sharing or voice calls. Cons of using the Skype Premium account are none ! But I suggest you to be a free user, if your Skype usage requirements are limited.
