- [Instructor] Skype is a powerful online communication tool…and there are many different ways which you can use it.…In this video, we'll take a look…at how you can send instant messages to your contacts,…including sending over files and images.…Now earlier, I added a contact,…and that was my friend and co-worker, Toby Malina.…So if I go up here to Contacts,…I can see that Toby appears here.…Now also, I can see that she has a green dot…on her profile picture.…This means that she is currently online,…so I'm going to go ahead and send an instant message to her.…
I can do this by going in the main body here…of the screen, and this is where any conversations,…text messages, anything that I have…to Toby will appear, and you can see here…that I did send a message when I first asked her…to add me as a contact.…Now down below, I can click in this text box,…and I can type in the message.…I'm going to go ahead and paste one…that I've already typed out, asking Toby…if she wants me to share notes from the team meeting.…When I'm done, I can click on the Send icon,…
