Today there are a large number of tools that allow us to communicate easily and also for free from our computer or from a smartphone. One of the best known applications is Skype. If you want to use this popular communication tool, pay attention, we explain how sign up for Skype.
From Messenger to Skype
Microsoft has always been very present in the instant messaging sector. We all remember the mythical Microsoft Messenger, which for years allowed us to communicate with people around the world without having to share personal data, only through email.
Messenger was a revolution in its time and was widely used by the younger generations, thanks largely to incorporating fun communication elements such as emoticons or the buzzing.
Little by little Microsoft was developing new products and I believe Skype in order to give it a more professional use. This tool was used for instant messaging, but also allowed to do calls and video calls for free.
With the passage of time Microsoft Messenger was falling into oblivion and some time ago Microsoft decided to permanently close this service that had given so many successes and bet on Skype.
