Skype allows family and friends around the world the opportunity to voice and video conference over an Internet connection. Users can sign up for free and text, voice and video chat in real-time. The program comes with default sounds that play when certain events occur such as friends or family signing in, a new message has been received or a new call has been received. One of the default sounds includes a knock. The knock sound can be changed to play for any event on Skype.
