Communication software is used to provide or facilitate remote access to computer systems, or to pass information from one computer system to another.

Common examples of communication software are messaging software, email, and file transfer protocol (FTP) systems, and terminal emulators.

The term is generally reserved for communications between one computer and another, and not to communications software powering telephone systems (telecommunications), radio communication, or other types of communications involving a computer and a device other than another computer.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) is a type of communication software, as well, although companies providing VOIP services are listed in the VOIP subcategory of the Technology category, in the Business & Industry tree.

The focus of this category is on communication software, as defined above.
