What is Skype?

Skype is a free program that can be used to make audio and video calls for free just like WhatsApp, Viber, and Facebook Messenger. It is owned by Microsoft now, but it was previously owned and founded by Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom, in collaboration with Kazaa developers, in 2003.

Using Skype, internet users can share files and send messages no matter where they are located. All it needs is an internet connection, nothing more.

It also offers a paid subscription, giving users access to more features like making audio calls and sending messages to any phone, internationally or locally.

Skype Accessibility

Skype is easily accessible on a multitude of devices. It is available on macOS X, Linux, and Windows. It can also be downloaded on the Xbox One, smartphones, and tablets. At the moment, Skype has been made temporarily unavailable on Android Wear and Apple Watch, but it will reinstate in the near future.

How to Unblock Skype Account

As mentioned earlier, Skype is blocked in a couple of locations. Instructions have already been provided regarding using Ivacy VPN to unblock the platform.

Apart from the US, you can connect to any region where Skype is available to regain access.
