Remarkable features of Skype

Welcome to the unofficial blog of Skype

The unofficial blog www.skaip.org is dedicated to the popular program Skype — a free, multifunctional Internet messenger, which allows users to make audio and video calls, write instant messages using chat, send files, share the screen, make group calls, call to mobile and landline phones and receive calls from them, send SMS-messages and use other interesting features.

This blog regularly publishes information on the latest developments related to Skype, including new releases, the latest news, interesting facts and official announcements. In addition, here you will find useful guides, tips, secrets, error description and even video tutorials. In a word, here you will learn everything about Skype.

One of the main advantages of the blog is the download section, where each user can download Skype free of charge for the desired operating system. Such systems as Windows, Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Linux have access not only to the latest releases of the program, but also to older versions, by which, if necessary or desired, it is easy to revert to previous versions of Skype.

It is important to emphasize that all installation files are genuine — as soon as a new version appears, we upload it on our server without any changes. That's why we only have the original versions of Skype which can be downloaded through a direct link. If you need an installation file, download it without registration, SMS messaging, premium services or waiting for an hour until the file is downloading.

No less important is the fact that this blog has been primarily designed for inexperienced users, who occasionally encounter problems and errors. For this reason, most of the materials are written in plain language as much as possible, avoiding computer slang or specific terms. But this does not mean that advanced users will not find anything interesting or useful here. It is for them that some online services and sections of secrets and interesting facts have been created.

Given the hard work to create and maintain this blog, you might think that this resource is the official source. But it is not — the blog www.skaip.org is not official and is not affiliated with the Skype Company or its representatives. In order not to lead users astray, there is a note on every page which warns about it.

The blog has been created to help users, and it is nice to see that they appreciate this. We hope that you also will find here what you were looking for. And if you have any questions or ideas, write to ???

Yours faithfully,
Administration of www.skaip.org
