Here's the fun and easy way to understand all the hype about Skype and make this cool alternative communication system work for you

People love Skype because it's fairly simple to use, it's free, it doesn't have advertisements or pop-up screens, and its communications are encrypted and secure. If you want the ability to make free voice calls or want to maximize Skype and get the most out of this free global telephony system, you've come to the right place. All you need to get going with Skype is a computer with Internet access, a headset or microphone -- and this book!

Although the technology is simple, it has some complexities when you go beyond making simple calls. Skype For Dummies covers call forwarding, voice mail, and conference calling and explains the use of two very popular and important Skype features:

    SkypeIn: Receive telephone calls that you can answer through Skype on your computer

    SkypeOut: Make calls out to regular old telephones from your computer

This no-nonsense guide is written in plain English, leaving the jargon at the door. You'll learn to

    Install and configure Skype on different platforms and various mobile connections

    Create a contacts list

    Set up voicemail and call forwarding

    Use Skype for worldwide conference calls and Skypecasting

    Enhance Skype with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi wireless, and video

    Change your Skype menus to a different language

    Adjust different hardware configurations and add-ons

    Troubleshoot problems with hardware configurations and other common issues

Skype For Dummies provides guidance on using this technology in a business setting, including some implementations that can help reduce support desk costs and automate surveys and interviews. A popular use of Skype is for video calling, and the book shows how you can easily install and configure this can't-miss feature. A dedicated web site keeps the book up to date as Skype adds new features.

Additionally, you'll discover ten ways to use Skype to promote your business and ten ways to use Skype at school. With an appendix on multilanguage support and another on tips and tricks, you won't want to Skype anyone until you have your copy of Skype For Dummies in hand.
