Skype4pidgin is a Plugin That Enables You to Use Skype With Pidgin

Pidgin is a popular cross-platform IM that enables you to connect to multiple instant messaging services simultaneously without any obstruction. The application features support for the most common protocols officially; however, you can maximize the use of Pidgin with its extensive list of unofficial plugins that will enable you to enjoy more functionality with the instant messenger. We previously covered how to use Purple Hangouts with Google’s Hangouts IM protocol via Pidgin and today we are featuring a similar third party libpurple plugin that gives you access to Skype via a skype4pidgin plugin.
