It does not limited to a home, office, cafe, or open public WiFi hotspot either. The Skype experience remains the same. Users can now make free domestic and international calls, chat with other Skype users anywhere around the world, and call to non-Skype users and regular phone numbers for a small fee with the SkypeOut feature.
