  • An operating system of a version that is supported by Skype. All current Windows versions are supported, as well as Mac OS. You need to check for the Linux versions that are supported. As for mobile phones, check whether your phone model is supported.
  • The Skype application, which you can download from Skype, iTunes or the Android marketplace and install on your device.
  • A Skype account. You need to register with Skype and have an account with a user name and password that you will enter each time you log in to your account. This account is free.
  • Skype credits. Skype calls are completely free worldwide, but only if you are communicating with someone using Skype, just like you, over an Internet connection. If you want to use Skype to call our firm on our landline phone, you will need some prepaid credit on your account, because calls to non-Skype numbers are not free. Nevertheless, they are cheap.
