In order to give Skype a try, we have made it incredibly easy – there is no need for an account or to download any software. In the app, you will find a range of features that will allow you to chat, make voice calls, and send pictures and emoticons to your friends. Since conversations cannot be saved, this isn’t a substitute for joining Skype, but it’s a great way to get a taste of it before you join the service.
When you are a Skype guest, you can immediately engage in an IM, voice, or video conversation with your friends by following these steps:
Choose the Join Link from one of your friends and click on it. Skype will be launched automatically if you have it installed on your computer. On your desktop computer, if you do not have Skype for Web installed, you can join as a guest using Skype for Web.
You can join as a guest by selecting the option Join as a guest. There is only a 24-hour limit on the duration of the guest conversation, so please keep that in mind.
A great thing about signing up for a Skype account is that it only takes a couple of minutes to do so. It is then up to you to decide how long you want to keep the conversation going for. When you have a Skype account, you will be able to do so much more with it.
The only thing you need is an internet connection to try Skype without downloading or signing up. Find out what your computer needs to run Skype.
