Skype bukanlah software penjelajah web, yang dimaksud Skype adalah sebuah program komunikasi dengan teknologi P2P (peer to peer). Program ini merupakan program bebas (dapat diunduh gratis) dan dibuat dengan tujuan penyediaan sarana komunikasi suara (voice) berkualitas tinggi yang murah berbasiskan internet untuk semua orang di berbagai belahan dunia. Pengguna Skype dapat berbicara dengan pengguna Skype lainnya dengan gratis, menghubungi telepon tradisional dengan biaya (skypeOut), menerima panggilan dari telepon tradisional (SkypeIn), dan menerima pesan suara . Teknologi skype ditemukan oleh wirausahawan Niklas Zennström dan Janus Friis, orang yang sama yang menemukan Kazaa dan Joost (P2P untuk televisi). Skype lalu berkompetisi dengan protokol terbuka VoIP yang sudah ada seperti SIP, IAX, dan H.323. Grup Skype yang dibentuk pada bulan September 2003 lalu dibeli oleh perusahaan lelang internet raksasa di Amerika e-Bay pada bulan September 2005 dan bermarkas di Luxembourg, Jerman dengan kantor-kantor di London, Inggris, Praha, Rusia dan San Jose, California, A.S.

Sejak diluncurkan skype telah mengalami pertumbuhan pesat baik dari penggunaannya yang populer maupun pengembangan perangkat lunaknya, jasa yang ditawarkan pun menjadi beragam mulai dari penggunaan gratis maupun berbayar.

Hanya dalam beberapa tahun saja pada bulan April 2006 Skype memiliki 100 juta pengguna.

Keunggulannya antara lain:

  1. Komunikasi global dan lokal yang lebih ekonomis melalui suara atau konferensi video. Sebagai ilustrasi pada tahun 2007 perbandingan menelpon ke Amerika dari Indonesia adalah Rp.6,640,-/ menit  sedangkan dengan menggunakan skype, aktivitas ini didapatkan gratis (untuk sesama pengguna skype) dan berbayar bila skype digunakan untuk menelpon ke pesawat telpon genggam: Rp. 1,593/ menit atau pesawat telpon rumah: Rp. 423/ menit . Komunikasi menjadi lebih murah dan terjangkau. Konferensi bisa dilangsungkan antar pengguna (dua orang) sampai dengan lima pengguna sekaligus.
  2. Penggunaannya yang mudah. Untuk pengguna yang telah biasa menggunakan pengirim-penerima pesan instan internet, perangkat lunak skype akan dirasakan mudah. Pengguna hanya diharuskan untuk memiliki komputer dengan spesifikasi teknis tertentu, headset (yang memiliki mike dan speaker), serta sambungan internet.
  3. Kualitas suara yang lebih baik dibandingakan VoIP pendahulunya. Kegunaan dasar pembicaraan telepon melalui komputer di mana pun pengguna berada (dengan koneksi internet) secara gratis.
