Gone are the days when making international calls costs a fortune. Today, with the popularity of smartphones and the widespread use of WiFi, calling people from across the world often does not cost a penny. This is made possible by VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol that allows you to place your calls via WiFi rather than a traditional phone system.
Some of the most popular VoiP services right now are Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Google Hangout. In order to use them, both you and the person you want to call must have the required app installed on your devices. It is also important that you both have a reliable internet connection. VoIP apps are available on Apple and Google stores and can be downloaded for free.
To make a call, simply open the app, look for the name of the person you want to call on your friends or contact list and press the voice call button. In many cases, you are also given an option to make a video call. You can have the conversation for as long as you want and you won’t be charged a penny!
