The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, optimised to help you stay connected with the people you care about most.
What can I do with Skype?
• Communicate easily with the people in your life through free Skype-to-Skype video/audio calls, personalised messaging and low-rate calling to mobiles and landlines around the world.
• Message: send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons and Mojis, and react to messages and more.
• Groups: Free group video and audio calling for up to 25 participants, group chat with up to 300 people and plan or play with bots, add-ins and personalised features
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.
Note: Skype-to-Skype calls and messages are always free when used on an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection. Otherwise, operator data charges may apply.
iOS 10.0 or above.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s great, except for this one thing.
Skype for IPad is still great, connection is easy, audio is clear etc. it’s fine, but there’s just a simple thing I would like added — I would like if there was just a simple function to like, remove some abilities from people, that only ‘admins’ (set by the creator of the chat group) and the creator can remove. Like making so that one person is unable to go around changing the name and pfp. Or to stop them from being able to remove everyone, especially the owner. It’s super annoying, and whilst creating a new chat is easy I would just like to not go thru the extra hassle.
Other than that, don’t improve anything, PLEASE, just add this and I’ll give 5 stars. I would Love It if I could stop ppl from removing me from my own chat.
Unless this is already a thing? I don’t think it is, right? Haven’t been able to find a function for it, anyways.
It's great - don't 'improve' it please!
Just reviewed the new Skype for iphone with one star, gladly the ipad version is still the old Skype that I know and love.
I am urging the developers, please PLEASE don't 'improve' this version into oblivion also!
Five stars - but only under the above condition :-)
Edit 14 July:
Unfortunately you have decided to improve the iPad version for the worse also, same as you did to the iPhone version. There is no proper contact list anymore and no on-offline status switch. People constantly try to call me via the PC telling me I appear online, but in fact I am not. Except on my Mac, I cannot switch properly to ‘offline’ any more, for my friends to see.
Shame on you for disregarding user feedback and making the once professional looking and powerful video conferencing software into a supposedly ‘modern’ Snapchat clone trying to appeal to 12 year olds.
Why do I need to ‘synchronise’ my contacts? I had a Skype list in the old Skype version that showed me perfectly who is online and who not. Not it is all a jumbled up mess that doesn’t show who really is available. Not everyone on my phone is on Skype and there is a reason for it, could you please appreciate that, thanks.
Migrating all my friends off Skype to alternatives now, urging people to contact me by other means. This has really been on a downward slope.
Sad. Very sad.
Totally happy with Skype
I use Skype on both an iPad Pro and a MacBook Pro. Just now I had two phone conversations with friends in Germany and Sweden. The sound was loud and clear; the connection solid, and the service very affordable.
I got rid of my landline after two years of trouble with broadband and Telstra and now connect only via Vodafone Pocket wifi to the internet. Should have done it two years earlier. Would have saved myself a lot (a very big lot!!!) of trouble as well as several hundred dollars. Skype is great!
