Product description

Product Description

Kindle notice: Although you can happily read this document on your Kindle Reader we recommend that you use the free Kindle apps for Windows Mac/iPad/iPhone/Android/Windows 8 when you want to get the most out of Skype. This way you can easily access extra resources referenced or linked in the book and you get the benefit of full color graphics. This also means that you can use this book without owning a Kindle Reader.

New! Note that a new 2nd Edition updated to cover the Skype ecosystem and its features as of February 2015 has been published through Apress, a division of Springer - the world's leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical books. Just search for Experience Skype and it will show up. However, the reviews here would apply to the 2nd Edition.
