They plan to go beyond the computer and, if possible, even outside the home, become a truly universal platform for VoIP calls everywhere. Although these plans sound great, what do they really mean to you, the customer?
First, Skype’s goal is to make the service available to everyone.
Currently, you can access Skype on the go with smartphones. Each smartphone has its own application, but each of them requires unlimited Internet benefit, unless you plan to talk a few minutes a month. In the future, applications can be paid, but now they are all free to use.
Skype is also available for commercial customers and can be routed through several commercial telephone systems, even if it is not VoIP, or installed on a completely new system. Currently, Skype’s commercial use is managed through Skype Manager. This program allows you to assign to each phone and user a subscription or a certain amount of credit for calls to international countries. These assignments can be replenished if necessary. The program also allows managers to analyze the time and cost of use, so that they can ensure that their employees use their calls as they should. Calls between VoIP phones are free and, as a rule, Skype rates are very cheap, which makes this transition a great idea for small businesses that want to save some money.
The next step is to introduce the darmowe Skype service throughout the house. Its Skype Kit software will allow developers to create applications for a wide variety of devices, from televisions to cars. You can use Skype from any room in your home. For the first time, Skype will be a viable replacement for a landline, since each device connected to the Internet must have a Skype application to connect. This means that you can communicate in any room without having to sit at the computer; imagine widescreen video chats on a normal TV, where you and your friend accidentally sit in your living rooms. Chatting with several people will be even easier; it will be almost as if you were in the same room.
Skype Kit is currently available exclusively for developers of consumer electronic devices. Currently, the company is planning a slow deployment of services and has not yet decided whether other web developers will receive this package. Web developers can access the Skype API to integrate the service into computer applications and peripherals such as headphones and webcams.
