The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, supercharged with lots of new features and new ways to stay connected with the people you care about most.

What can I do with Skype?

• Messaging made amazing: 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 favourite 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 amazing 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.

Editors' Notes

From the new baby to the latest sales figures, Skype makes sharing our big news better. Anyone can start calling, texting and video-conferencing—or even dialing landlines—thanks to the intuitive design. With zillions of Skype users to connect to, it’s one of the most useful apps on our iPhone and Apple Watch.

Original signin is for Microsoft account


Petlo I also experienced same issue of lost Skype credits as the sign in asks for your Microsoft sign in. However if you sign out and signin with you old user name it finds your credits and contact lists which are lost when signing into new skype account as Microsoft give you new user name. I need also to be able to charge up calls accounts with $50 amount minimum as from memory it’s only max $20. Why they do not give users options to choose any amount for recharge in this digital age is confusing.

Love my skype


Honestly I love my skype mobile app and I use it all the time to get in touch with my family and friends abroad. Even though there is the free WhatsApp, but I prefer to pay a little bit and have a great connection be that on WiFi or 4G. I have put $20 and still haven’t used it up since a year.
Love it and would advise it to anyone who needs to make long distance calls
