App Description

The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, supercharged with a ton of new features and new ways to stay connected with the people you care about most. What can I do with Skype? • Messaging made awesome: More than just text. Send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons, Mojis and more. You can also respond to any message from your contacts with reactions. • Great for groups: Add your favorite people and start chatting. Use groups to plan together, play together, for staying in touch or just for hanging out. • Call everyone - Skype, mobiles and landlines: Free* video and voice calls make it easier to stay connected with friends and family. You’ll also enjoy low calling rates to mobiles and landlines worldwide with Skype.  • Never miss a moment with quick capture: Quickly swipe to capture photos and videos. Make them your own by adding emoticons, stickers and annotations. • Share Highlights: Keep others updated with Highlights from your day. React to any highlights with awesome emoticons or send a private message about that highlight. Your highlights only stay visible for 7 days to your followers. *Skype to Skype calls are free. Operator data charges may apply. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection. Upgrading to the new Skype may result in the deletion of content from older conversations. To save photos and videos that were previously sent or received in an older version of Skype, save that content to your camera roll/photo gallery before upgrading to the new Skype.

  • Not working

    By DayDreamer360
    Skype Company Please fix the bugs that it has on here which is...:" whenever you make a new chat or a new call the app crashes on my face and whenever you open the contacts book it also crashes into my face" Please i hope you fix this as soon as you can...🙂
  • No longer practical

    By Eldrog
    I always loved Skype's basic and efficient layout and functions. I never needed nor wanted anything above what worked. Unfortunately, not only did Skype go beyond a complicated setup, but it's no longer a practical app to use. It's far too laggy and difficult to maneuver through, when it isn't crashing. Too many apps and sites are trying to "upgrade" themselves into something more flashy and with more functions, now Skype has fallen prey to this flawed thinking. I hope they'll fix their errors soon. *The latest update has only created worse lag, made it so much slower and makes it slow even on my computer when switching from iPhone to PC. Discord is looking a lot nicer now!
  • Better than hangouts

    Skype is way better than hangouts
  • How do I view a video message I received?

    By eburkea
    The app shows I have a message but I cannot view it on iPhone????? How do I send a video from the iPhone? Have these core features been removed?
  • Ignored. Asking for change.

    By Rainbow puke 🐙
    They changed everything, but the one thing I wanted to change, being able to share screens on mobile devices. Everything else was fine. They even made the ring tone more annoying. They say that they listen to their users’ comments but they don’t, otherwise, more things would have been either changed or left alone. LISTEN TO US SKYPE

    By Very unhappy Nike app user
    When running out of Skype Credits the call gets disconnected without any warning or a fast way to add more money. When making a call the remaining Skype credits are not displayed either. Please do something about it!!
  • Text Notifications not working on Apple Watch

    By RandomKrash
    I dislike the new interface but more important the notifications of new text messages are not happening consistently especially on my Apple Watch so I miss Skype texts unless I keep checking. This happens on my iPhone, iPad Pro and Series 3 iWatch. And I have latest updates of iOS and apps.
  • Locked out despite having Skype for years

    By naomi.ondas
    I’m a long-time user of Skype’s services. I recently added paid credit for the first time in order to make an international call for work. The site flagged me despite the credit clearing, and I got locked out (though I’m unsure why). As I opened the account many years before, I no longer have access to the email that was associated with the account (old yahoo account). Now the only response I get is to open a new Skype account. I don’t want to lose all my old chat history, and I find the recovery system lacking and problematic. Also a total lack of customer service. I’m Very disappointed and highly annoyed as I had some video messages (from family and friends) that were meaningful to me and I would have liked to save.
  • Buggy

    By Av acorns
    Half the time I don't receive messages in or out of the app. Sometimes the messages will not appear, and then I have to reload skype. Please fix this, thank you.
  • Don’t sign up for “phone” service

    By Utopiabound
    As far as I can tell the “phone” service is a scam. It can’t receive calls and it can’t dial out. And they won’t give you your money back.
