Skype has clients for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and even Linux, and the service is so popular due to its cross-compatibility. It’s one of the best available choices for staying in touch with whomever you need to across vast distances.

It comes with both RPM and DEB packages available, and this will make it easier to install it on Ubuntu or Fedora for instance. As a quick reminder, both Ubuntu and Fedora will be available in the Windows Store this fall.

There are also options to personalize conversations with emoticons, photos, and emojis and, this way, you’ll be able to express yourself in your individual style better.
