Skype was founded in 2003 by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis. On May 10, 2011, Microsoft bought the company developer of the program for $8.5 billion. This event gave a new start for the further development of messenger. Now Skype has such functions as:
- Group video and audio calls;
- Skype number;
- Text,video and audio messeges;
- Screen sharing;
- File and contacts transfer;
