If you depend on Skype for voice-and-video chatting, you may want to try Google Hangouts instead.
Widely used over the past 10 years, Skype is a very useful addition to any Android device.
But the chances are you’re not familiar with it; alternatively, you might have an older relative wielding an Android smartphone for the first time (and we hope you showed them our guide written especially for such an occasion).
But it really does do what it claims: it allows you to make cheap international and local phone calls.
This is done either for free by calling another Skype user, or for a low charge if you’re calling a landline, mobile, or business anywhere in the world.
We’re talking, of course, about Microsoft’s messaging and VOIP app, Skype, an app that can revolutionise the way you make calls and connect with people.
But did you know that your Android tablet can make calls too, with the right app installed?
Progress is made at no slower a pace than it is for my 'in studio' students.
At the scheduled lesson time, the student will make a video call with Skype, which is a free service.
For the past few years, mobile versions of the Skype app have been revolutionising how we use smartphones.
