Last year’s Cre­ators Up­date in­tro­duced a wide range of new fea­tures to Win­dows 10, and one of the apps that saw the big­gest changes was Skype. Ever since Mi­crosoft ac­quired the video call­ing ser­vice in 2011, it has been an in­te­gral part of Win­dows, seam­lessly em­bed­ded into the op­er­at­ing sys­tem and mak­ing it in­cred­i­bly easy to keep in touch with friends and fam­ily around the world via free voice and video calls. If you haven’t tried Skype, then now is an ex­cel­lent time to start since it’s free to down­load and use.

Video and voice calls to other Skype users are free – po­ten­tially sav­ing you huge amounts of money on phone bills. You can also buy Skype cred­its en­abling you to phone – and text – mo­bile phones and land­lines from the Skype app on your Win­dows 10 de­vice. Read on to find out how to get started and make use of its ex­cit­ing fea­tures…
