Installation and settings of Skype

 

Skype — is a freemium voice-over-IP service and instant messaging client. The service allows users to communicate with peers by voice using a microphone, video by using a webcam, and instant messaging over the Internet. Skype allows to make conference-calls (up to 25 people including initiator), video-calls (including video-conferences up to 10 people) and allows to transfer the text (chat) or send files. There an opportunity to share your screen.
Official web-site: www.skype.com
 
Perhaps, it is the most simple program to use that doesn't require any special configurations. Н
You need to sign in before downloading it.
After the launch file is downloaded open it and the Skype Setup file will install it automatically – Skype is ready to use. 
After installation launch it. You will see the welcome screen that you can close.
 
The main page of the Skype: 
 
 

If you want to add a new contact, use "Add contact" in the end of the contact list or choose from the menu "Contacts":

 

 

 

You added some people and you want to call them all at once. Now use the button "Group" or in the "Contacts" choose "Create a new group ...":

 

 

 

Then the empty box group appears. Add the members by dragging them from the contact list, or use group menu "Add people...":

 

 

 

Press «Call group»:

 

 

 

If you have any problems or you want to set up the microphone volume and sound, use the settings that are in the "Tools" menu:

 

 

This is main settings menu:

 

 

Almost all the settings can be left by default. No additional settings are required. 
 
The only negative is that it is not possible to "Push-to-talk" (Click to speak) or activate the microphone voice as most gaming communication programs. Yours and your teammates' microphone is on all the time.

skype is (was) great, really.. but lately it's just so laggy.. it's killing my PC,the processor is ALWAYS on 100%... can't play normally nor anything .. (for me skype is becoming worse.. the calls are always failing for no reason.. many people were complaining for that same problem)

so if you haven't got any of those problems i'd recommend it, if you do - switch to TS it's way better
