Skype

I do a lot of Skype'ing - is this something I will have to use my limited space to install? Or is there going to be an app for that? Is the microphone going to be decent - because I hate the one on my Dell....

I am going to guess that Skype will have an app that you can use on the Google Chrome. I think it will be done the same as it is on smartphones.

I thought this was for internet use only, such as surfing? Can you download a messenger on it?

Perhaps. I'll offer these stats from the Chrome Web Store:
  • imo has 68501 users, 590 ratings & a 4.5 star rating
  • meebo has 6226 users, 36 ratings & 4 star rating

Please understand these are just from the Chrome Web Store, but show that imo has been popular among Cr-48 & ChromiumOS users.

I do not meebo and did not know about imo. I can see why there are more users. Thanks for the link.

If there is not some kind of app out already then there will be. Skype is major, and like someone else said. If they can put it on smart phones the Google will find a way to make it usable on a Chromebook.

imo, meebo

Not familiar with either of these, are they skype look-a-likes?

I have skype on my samsung fascinate, supplied by verizon, which forces calls onto its network, so you lose any potential voip upside. I'm looking for the chrome to give me a cheap means of video conferencing, fyi..thks
