Skype Hits 27M Online Users

Skype, a online program that allows you to make free calls over the internet, announced on Monday that it hit 27 million users online at the same time. "New record: 27 million people online on Skype right now!" the VoIP service announced on its Facebook page.

The announcement comes almost two months after Skype announced that it had recorded 25 million users Skyping at once. "Our software is designed to handle large numbers of concurrent users, with wideband audio and group video calls all flowing smoothly around the world," the company wrote in a blog post at the time.

Skype was also at the Consumer Electronics Show last week , where it announced its acquisition of mobile service provider Qik, as well as an improved video-chat feature that allows 10 people to videoconference together for just $8.99 per month.
