Skype offers a more personal way to keep in touch with family and friends. In contrast to using a regular telephone or messaging service, Skype allows users to both see and hear the people on the other end of their call. With the help of webcams, a full-screen chat can enhance your conversation by allowing you to see your friends and family in "real-life" proportions. Skype provides a simple user interface in which you can change your settings to full-screen mode.
