    It's kind of summed up in one of the last statments, "...Wi-Fi Calling is a big feature because it lets you make and take calls over a Wi-Fi connection, which can sound better than cellular, especially when your cell connection is weak....". It's free, where Skype cost money.

    My understanding is you can call any phone (or receive from) with WIFI calling.

    @palandri: Ok, I get it. To use Skype free, both the caller and target need to be 1) in a wifi area, 2) calling a Skype enabled device.

    @rjniles: You are correct. However, for a small cost, it is possible to use Skype to call any phone, including landlines.

    Wi-Fi calling is pretty seamless on my Moto X. If in range of a hotspot that I have logged into previously, calls are placed and rec'd over Wi-Fi. In my case, these are mostly cable company hotspots.
