A review of Skype WiFi for Windows 8 by Sven Sørensen

With Skype WiFi for Windows 8, Microsoft allows you to use your Skype account to connect to public WiFi networks and pay as you use the service with your existing Skype credit.

The service currently supports over 1 million wireless hotspots across the planet.

While you're traveling, you can quickly find an available hotspot, like in an airport or cafe, and use that hotspot by paying with your Skype credits currently on your account.

Depending on where you are and what the provider is, the cost of using public WiFi networks with Skype WiFi for Windows 8 will vary vastly. The alternative is paying with your credit card. Before you connect to the hotspot, the price is clearly displayed.

Depending on the quality of the connection and how far you are from the physical hotspot, speed can vary.

Overall, Skype WiFi for Windows 8 is an interesting alternative for people who often travel and require a connection to the Internet while in airports or train stations. It also reduces the risk of having to enter your credit card every time you want to use a public hotspot.

Skype WiFi for Windows 8 can make VoIP calls, text chat, call landlines and cell phones, chat with groups, video conference and send SMS messages.
