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.

Disappointing - Removes your control


Very disjointed Skype. Why is it with push disabled, background app refresh disabled, heck even data disabled on cellular, I still receive notifications of new messages? Not only does this kill my battery, I run out of data! How can Apple allow such an app on their store?! It completely bypasses (or ignores) the owners settings for data use, backgrounds refresh and notifications! Disgusting!!!
What else is this app doing which it shouldn't????

Still can’t send a message from iPhone 6


I think it’s time to walk away from Skype I’m so annoyed. This is ridiculous it’s been weeks and still cannot send a message. I’ve uninstalled. Reinstalled new one. Tried the “fix”. Still not working. I can get messages but none of mine go through to anyone. I’m done
