Start making calls and video calls
To start using calls and video calls in Skype Web it is necessary to install an add-on that will only take a few seconds. From there, the mechanism is as simple as selecting the contact from the list and choosing between the call and video call option .
In the case of wanting to make a call to a mobile phone or a landline phone, it is necessary to purchase a pricing plan. To select this option you must access the Calls to phones option, select the destination, dial the number you want to call and press the call button.
Share photos and add emoticons
One of the functions that we can perform from the web version of Skype is to share photos. The way to do it is very simple: you only have to press the button on the camera when we are in a conversation (you will find it in the upper right corner).
We just have to select the photo and it will automatically load on the screen.
You can also accompany your emoticon conversations by clicking on the smiley face button that you will find in the bottom bar of the conversation.
With these steps you will be able to make calls, add people to a conversation and communicate with your closest people from practically anywhere in the world.
It is also a very useful option for those users who need to use Skype from a foreign computer so if you are traveling and have not brought your computer, anything better than using this service from any other PC to enjoy all the functions it offers.
