Some functions are hidden in menus or buttons which aren't very descriptive (e.g.screen sharing), which requires a bit of prior learning and practice to take full advantage of it.
This is the same technology that enables the program to allow voice calls between users and phones.
Video calls, the star function of the program, didn't appear until two years later, along with a range of functions that eventually disappeared over time, including Skypecast, Skype Find, and even sending money.
With Skype, you can communicate with your friends wherever they are and with whatever device you use, whether it's a latest generation phone, smart TV, PC or Mac.
Its main interest lies in video calls where it's becoming something of a benchmark.
