Download Ekiga
Although people are still using the telephone in one form or another as the main means of communication, VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) is the newest form of voice communication.

Ekiga, which used to be named GnomeMeeting, supports both of the most popular VoIP protocols. Depending on which you use, SIP or H.323, you will be able to have sessions with voice or/and video. SIP is fast becoming the most popular and full-featured way to communicate.

The configuration and use of Ekiga is easy. Upon opening it, you'll go through a few steps that guide you through setting your VoIP account just the way you want it. Within minutes you're ready to place your first call.

Ekiga has an address book to keep track of your contacts and a roster separates the ones you call frequently from those you don't communicate much with. You can stop audio, video or both at any time in a conversation and even put them on hold and transfer them.

This VoIP program doesn't have an excess of features but it has everything one needs to communicate anywhere in the world with quality and clear connections. Ekiga is a great application for anyone who loves to communicate.
