Skype is a proprietary voice-over-Internet Protocol service and software application originally created in 2003 by Swedish entrepreneur Niklas Zennström and his Danish partner Janus Friis. It has been owned by Microsoft since 2011.

The service allows users to communicate with peers by voice, video, and instant messaging over the Internet. Phone calls may be placed to recipients on the traditional telephone networks. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free of charge, while calls to landline telephones and mobile phones are charged via a debit-based user account system. Skype has also become popular for its additional features, including file transfer, and videoconferencing.

$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install skype

"Install skype in Ubuntu 12.04/11.10"

That's it you have successfully installed Skype. Enjoy :)
