When you use Voice over Internet Protocol technology, it is possible to send and receive voice calls on a laptop. VoIP is a set of communication protocols that enables the transmission of voice data over the Internet. You can download several VoIP applications and services to your laptop as a desktop application or access them via the Internet as an online application. These applications display the caller ID of incoming calls, giving you the option to answer or reject the calls. To use a VoIP application via Wi-Fi, you must connect your laptop to a wireless network that has Internet access.
